News and updates from the ixo team and community

Last week, the overarching theme in all of ixo’s work was community engagement. CTO Cedric travelled from Cape Town to Santa Barbara to attend Rebooting the Web-of-Trust. Fennie was in Paris attending the Ethereum Community Conference this weekend. And in the Cape Town office, we had the first ixo Community Call.

We’re always looking for ways to engage and involve the blockchain and impact community in our work. If you have any comments, questions, suggestions, or ways you’d like to get involved, send us an email at
