This Blockchain Meetup is the third event that has been made possible through SparkPoint, Ownly and Bicol IT’s endless collaborations. As Drei Bongalos said in one of our off-cam interviews:
“This partnership with Ownly and other blockchain tech companies won’t see an end anytime soon, as we are always in continuous collaboration to be catalysts of mass adoption of this emerging technology. Expect more of this to come to more communities and regions. “

6. The refreshed SparkSwap Website went live!
We’ve given SparkSwap Website a fresh look this May! The latest design and contents will show users all the valuable data and details they wish to know about SparkSwap. All the dapps under SparkSwap, like SparkPool, DEX, SparkBridge, SparkLaunch, SparkRewards and SparkNFT, are being updated regularly for a better user-experience.
The website is still a work in progress, so expect some bugs and inconsistencies while browsing. Check the refreshed website here and explore!
7. From SparkDeFi to SparkSwap: The transition begins
Alongside the release of SparkSwap’s refreshed look and contents, a powerful transition begins! After an almost 2-year run as the SparkPoint’ts Decentralized finance platform, “SparkDeFi” is being rebranded to “SparkSwap”.
To date, we’ve replaced the ‘S’ logo to a modern S logo resembling the lightning⚡ symbol, the old domain, ‘srk.finance’ will be directed to the updated SparkSwap website, and from now on, the ‘sparkswap.finance’ will be the domain of the official website. Lastly, SparkDeFi’s social media accounts, channels, community groups and related platforms will soon carry the SparkSwap branding, so expect this to happen in the coming days!
While the platform goes through this transition phase, the SparkSwap V2 will be launched this coming June, with new features and functionalities to be unveiled.
8. SparkPoint supports Anito Legend’s Meet-a-Verse event
Last May 28, 2022, team SparkPoint and SparkLearn EdTech supported the Anito Legend’s Meet-a-Verse event! Anito Legend is also a Filipino-led blockchain gaming company. In the event, they officially revealed the upcoming launch of their first play and earn, auto battler game.
SparkPoint will continue to support this kind of activity as this serves as another gateway for meeting a lot of potential collaborators who gauge the same interests. And, of course, it’s always good to see all the Philippine-based blockchain technology companies and startups gathered in one event, supporting, and promoting each other’s endeavors. This is also to realize each company’s goal to contribute to the mass-adoption of blockchain technology in the country.
9. SparkLearn’s Early Bird Registration for the upcoming Blockchain Developer Bootcamp (BDB) 2022, now closed!
Have you availed the Early Bird Discount? The last day of the early bird registration was last May 31, 2022. That means the BDB Registration fee goes back to its regular price!
The free courses are still open, or it would be much better, if you start investing for yourself now and become a competitive blockchain developer in the future, register now for the upcoming BDB 2022!
We just summed up another month Sparkies! The team has been working on with the products and services towards meeting the goal for the month of May, and that is to bring #SparkSwap forward! 🚀
