Public Mint Community Updates #1
As April draws to an end, these are the highlights of what’s been happening in the Public Mint universe.
It’s been a busy fortnight at Public Mint. The second half of April has seen us hard at work at some of the core functionalities of the Public Mint network and the EARN program: USDC, cards, and partner solutions.
Integrations is the name of the game.
Highlights of the fortnight
- Partnerships: April has been a productive month in the partnership departments. We’re happy to say that we’re broadening the scope of our partnerships to make Public Mint — and the MINT token — more useful by the day. In the past two weeks, we’ve welcomed Unmarshal and Decentr into the Public Mint family. And these partnerships are generating interest and being picked up by the press. Some of the latest coverage include: Yahoo Finance, Business Insider, Blockonomi, Daily HODL, BTCNN, ZY Crypto, Coinspeaker, iHODL — amogst others.
- Clickable demo: we’ve released the very first clickable demo of our mobile wallet app, complete with the early flow for the EARN program and a provision for MINT tokens. If you haven’t already, check it out — take it for a spin and let us know what you think!
- About us page design: We’ve finalised the design, and will publish shortly the About us page, complete with our core team, company history, mission and vision.
- AMA with #CryptoEngine by Stakely: as the title implies, another great AMA with our CTO Jorge Pereira.
As we move into the ides of May and into summer, the weather isn’t the only thing that’s heating up. Check out what’s brewing next in the Public Mint:
Liquidity Rewards Program extension: the Public Mint Liquidity Rewards Program will be updated for yet another month, starting on May 7 until June 6. We’re paying close attention to see if and how the upcoming Uniswap upgrade will affect our Liquidity Rewards Program; if it does, we’ll make sure to update you as soon as possible. For now, there’s no action needed, and we’ll follow with an ANN early next week as the date draws closer.
- USDC integration (ongoing): We’re looking to allow sending/receiving USDC transparently from your USD balance, in a way that is traceable cross-chain. We’re currently working on exposing USDC options via our own APIs and smart contracts.;
- Credit cards integration (ongoing): we’ve started due diligence on shortlisted providers of credit/debit card rails to add this funding option to Public Mint;
- Blockchain (starting): we’ve started working on a bridge between the Ethereum and Public Mint networks for the MINT token.
- CeFi integrations (starting): we’ve started working on an integration with one of the world’s leading CeFi providers for the EARN Program. More details to follow in the next few weeks;
- KYC/Identity partners (finalising): we successfully finalised the technical/integration assessment of one partner, and we’re in conversations with potential additional partners into our platform.
- Upcoming AMA with the Crypto Royals community (Wednesday, May 5);
- About us page development: we’re working on turning the design we created into a beautiful, funcional page
Finally, we’re also working on growing our team to accelerate our growth, both on the technical and the business/marketing front. More on this in the next update.
And that concludes another fortnight at the Public Mint mothership — until the next one, stay safe and stay tuned!
