Our in-house QA team is constantly testing the limits of our system and scrutinizing on the codes, ensuring that there are no stones left unturned. Over the past few weeks, some minor bugs were found and fixed thanks to their hard work.

For imToken 2.1.0:

  • Errors on executions of EOS transactions due to long passwords.

For imToken 1.4.9:

Stay tuned for more updates!

Community updates

The past few weeks were packed with activities! Our team members went around the globe, spreading the imToken name with different communities.

Be ready for a series of pictures.

ETH Berlin

Philipp (Business Development Director) met some of the brightest minds in the industry at the ETH Berlin, from 7 to 9 September 2018. Hackathon, a series of workshops and talks by different projects, displayed the vibrancy of the Ethereum blockchain development climate, beneath all the talks about prices.

A simple blogpost is not enough to summarise the whole event, one thing we found useful is the ETHBerlin blog, you can find some nice information and reviews for ETH Berlin, particularly in this post.

Try to spot Philipp here!

Berlin Blockchain Week Meetup

Besides taking part in ETH Berlin, Philip also co-organised a meetup with Nervos Network, Origin Protocol, Kyber Network and Cosmos, who sat down and discussed about the cultural differences in crypto space between the East and the West.

MakerDao, imToken Shanghai Meetup

And on the week after the Berlin Blockchain Week, Kai (Chief Software Architect) and Mako (Head of Business Operations) was invited to speak at a meetup organised by MakerDao at Neutrino Shanghai.

Kai shared about imToken 2.0 during the meetup, the features and roadmap of imToken. Coming from a technical background, Kai broke down many technical details into bitesize information that can be easily understood by the audience.

Mako was invited to a panel joined by MakerDao, EthFans, ConsenSys and Bihu. They discussed about mainstream adoption of blockchain technology and what is the real killer app for blockchain. Mind-boggling ideas and opinions were exchanged between the panelists and the audience shared many interesting thoughts on the same topic as well.

Vietnam Cryptocurrency and Digital Assets Dialogue (CDAD) 2018

Shirley, Mako and Yongkhang went to Hanoi Vietnam to take part in the Vietnam Cryptocurrency and Digital Assets Dialogue (CDAD) between 15–16 September.

Our first visit to Vietnam was met with enthusiasm from the Vietnamese users of imToken. The presence of many reputable local technical universities around Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City resulted in a large pool of young developers, who are eager to explore the mysteries of the blockchain world.

Yongkhang also had the opportunity to share imToken 2.0, along with some thoughts about Vietnam’s blockchain ecosystem for the Ministry of Justice (in audience). The conference was also joined by some industry heavyweights including but not limited to Vitalik Buterian (Ethereum), Loi Luu (Kyber Network), Long Vuong (Tomochain), and more.

There are so much opportunities for imToken in Vietnam, it is definitely one of the area we want to focus on as part of our global expansion plan.

Consensus Singapore/ Singapore Blockchain Week

Last but definitely not the least, the imToken team participated in the Singapore Blockchain Week from 17–21 September 2018, with the Consensus Singapore conference on 19 and 20 September.

Ben (Founder and CEO) was invited to share his thoughts in a panel at Consensus Singapore, along with HTC Exodus, Coinbase Wallet and Opera Browser, moderated by Jon Russel from Techcrunch. The discussion revolved around wallet as a consumer facing product, how can it contribute to the mainstream adoption of blockchain technologies and what are some of some challenges faced by wallets. Comparisons were drawn from traditional digital wallet service providers like Alipay and what blockchain wallets can adopt from their strategies.

“The landscape of crypto wallet apps is very much different from traditional payment apps on mobile like AliPay because user education about private keys storage is a major part of our job” — Ben He

Many events were happening at the same time throughout the week. Ben returned with many fresh ideas to ponder upon. How will imToken evolve from where we are now?
