After a busy 2018 of #buidling, IoTeX is ready to bring our technology to the real world in 2019. This journey cannot be completed alone! While we work with our development partners to build new services, tools, and DApps, we are also actively onboarding new ecosystem partners to bring new capabilities to IoTeX. By contributing their unique expertise (i.e., tech, economics, distribution) to IoTeX, our ecosystem partners expand the reach/possibilities of the IoTeX blockchain, DApps, and ecosystem.
In the past year, we have onboarded several ecosystem partners focused on security and scalability (i.e., CertiK, Celer). But that’s not all that is needed for a thriving ecosystem! This is why we are excited to announce our new ecosystem partners and IoTeX Delegate candidates: BlockBoost, BlueFox IoT, Cobo Wallet, CoinGecko, DRoute, and HashBuy, National University of Singapore, and Stanford CPC!
