Monthly Review: January 2022
The Scallop team started the New Year with great enthusiasm and focus on our mission. In January we reached important milestones in our roadmap, e.g. partnering with MultiChain to facilitate the cross-chain swap of the SCLP token, and we also made wonderful progress in our mission to expand the business globally, as we gained a Money Service Business (MSB) license from FINTRAC — which will allow Scallop to service Canada’s 37,000,000 citizens.
Additionally, the Scallop team reached a significant milestone in the development of Scallop Chain — the first regulated blockchain; V1 of the test net has successfully been launched!
Scallop also entered the sporting world by becoming the Primary Partner of Premier League football club Norwich City F.C, which will enhance Scallop’s exposure to the 4+ billion Premier League viewers.
Take a full look at our many achievements this month…
MSB License, Canada
Scallop acquired a prestigious Money Services Business (MSB) license from Canada’s Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre (FINTRAC). This will allow us to operate our business and launch the Scallop App in Canada. It is a great stepping stone in our mission to make Scallop accessible to as many people across the world.
The MSB license highlights Scallop’s aim to work in concert with regulators worldwide and maintain a strong perception of trust, as we provide a safe ecosystem for users to store, trade and manage their banking and crypto services.
Norwich City F.C. Partnership
Scallop became the Official DeFi partner of Premier League football club Norwich City F.C, for the remainder of the 2021/22 season. Scallop and Norwich share a mutual principle to inspire the next generation of young fans. This partnership will aid Scallop to gain worldwide exposure to the 4+ billion Premier League viewers, in 190 countries and educate young people around the world about DeFi.
Scallop partnered with MultiChain! This will allow token holders to swap the SCLP token between multiple blockchains on the MultiChain platform.

This month, we completed the Scallop “Double-Up” Christmas Giveaway in which we doubled the amount of SCLP bought on PancakeSwap for 5 lucky winners.
We also hosted a “#10 Shirt Competition” in collaboration with Norwich City F.C. Tying in with Scallop’s ten “X’ products, we asked our followers who is their favourite past or present footballer to wear the famous #10 shirt. One lucky winner has been sent the gift.

As a thank you to those who have staked their SCLP for 4 years, we’ve reopened the form to receive a free “I Staked SCLP for life’ t’-shirt. As of the end of the month, 4 year stakers now make up more than 60% of all staking!
