An Update From Brandon:
CEO and Founder, Brandon Burgason, was in our telegram channel over the weekend to share some more specific updates about the app release and our progress; for those of you who missed it, here it is:
1. MBX is now able to be used at retail with the 1.0.6 release. This is a significant release to show token utility.
2. Buy, Sell, Exchange cash & crypto in-app for BTC, ETH, USDT, USDC, and USD is scheduled to be live in the next few releases. MBX support to follow on the following release.
3. Follow release will have in-app rewards live for completing actions in the app. Once this is live, we will implement our In-App Staking/Earn platform for $MBX holders.
4. We have been collecting data on the first users on the platform. The biggest issue we face is Verifying Identity since it is a US bank account. We have fixed this blocker with our compliance team and are working on the onboarding experience where people can create crypto wallets globally without KYC and only do KYC if they want to use USD per banking laws. This new process will dramatically reduce onboarding friction.
5. We are now integrated with CVS, Ulta, Gap, PetSmart, Old Navy, The Container Store, Auto Zone, Jamba, and Banana Republic. We are finalizing Starbucks integration now. Hopefully, we can push this live soon.
6. Marketing campaigns have not gone off as planned since the global crypto market downturn. We are testing different strategies for the rest of the years and seeing what works so we can push hard in Q1 of 2022. Once all the app enhancements are done, we will have a better CALL TO ACTION for new downloads and users.
7. The State of Texas in the US is on track to be live in Q1 of 2022. New York is still pending for Bit License with our banking partner.

9. Our second-largest exchange got hacked for $196 million last week. MBX was NOT affected by the hack but has affected MBX since all deposits and withdrawals have closed, dramatically impacting volume. We are monitoring closely. When they reopen, we expect things to be pick up.*** NOTE: BitMart has communicated the below that deposits and withdraws should be live by the time of this article posting!
10. We have increased our Telegram and Twitter following by 2,000+ in the last week as part of our marketing tests, generating new eyeballs to the community.
