These weeks Fusion got an important recognition of its previous achievements and progress: project received two awards at the World Blockchain Security Conference held at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. The company was awarded ‘Most Valuable Project’ and Chief Operating Officer, Josie Jiang, was recognized as an ‘Outstanding Contributor.’ Also, Fusion adds to the team John Liu as Head of Product Strategy. Tech team keeps making progress with development. Last week they published a new video on Fusion Time-Lock, explaining how this feature can simplify management of restricted equity trading periods and open up new liquidity opportunities. These weeks Fusion illustrated high social activity in the media landscape: DJ Qian keeps on posting on twitter, there were an interview and AMA on official subreddit on recent Fusion partnership with Automotive eXchange Platform (AXP). Fusion community continues to grow slowly, social media dynamics shows that it remains virtually unchanged. There are slight fluctuations in the number of token holders.

My favourite Q&A from @Ethfinex AMA.

Q) Why would a business build on Fusion?

1) Fusion’s time-lock feature and view on time-based TXs allows institutions to recreate many complex, and industry specific transactions on our platform. We are working on numerous POCs.

2) Fusion’s complete #interoperability solution enables distributed #custodianship and the interconnected exchange of value across different chains.

3) Fusion’s focus on building solutions that solve real commercial needs, today. #FSN

“Enjoyed reading Fidelity @DigitalAssets’s paper on ‘Custody in the Age of Digital Assets’, they are creating institutional caliber custody services for digital assets. Means more opportunities for HSM providers and ECDSA Encryption Technology like DCRM”

“Exciting work by @chadcascarilla and @PaxosGlobal to create frictionless transfer of digital assets. With regulated asset authorities like PAX, @FUSIONProtocol’s ability to swap assets and create derivatives is a step forward for digitization.”

“Hardware security modules (HSM) and DCRM software are the next innovations for custody of digital assets. @IBM have the first part figured out. Let’s chat @rbadlaney about making the software part a reality.”
