Reef Monthly Recap: May 2022.

The ever-expanding and Reliable, Extensible, Efficient & Fast ecosystem for EVM dApps, Reef, is back with a rundown of all the accomplishments of another successful month.

Exciting events, community campaigns, integrations, and technical updates, the month of May has contributed remarkably to Reef’s continuous expansion.

Let’s briefly look at all the May accomplishments.

Strategic Integrations

Reef and Multichain Integration Announcement: We are thrilled to share that Multichain (previously Anyswap), a cross-chain router protocol, has started cooperation for Reef Chain’s integration to their protocol. This strategic move has sparked great thrill in our community as $REEF supporters will seamlessly be able to bridge assets using Multichain.

Joining different communities, speakers, channels, and groups of builders, Reef spread the word about its mission, ecosystem, developments, and more to a greater audience this month. Some of the May events we joined are:

  • Web3 Growth Marketing Meetup, Mumbai.
  • AMA with Hypersign, a new dApp on Reef blockchain.

That’s all for May, but we have a lot planned for June.
