Monthly report: a recap of activities in August 2021

Dear Pundians,

Welcome to August Pundi X Insider. August was the month of heavy tech development. Making accessible and easy-to-use financial services based on blockchain technology has always been our motto. The blockchain technology and regulatory environment have constantly evolved. More and more people are becoming crypto users. It’s more important than ever to get educated about the technology itself and the risks involved. This month we centered on in-depth information dissemination in widening users’ knowledge about cryptocurrencies and their use cases.

Let’s take a closer look at our activities in August:

PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT

Pundi X Chain and deXPOS Application

In August, we held a poll about naming the first 25 validators of the upcoming Pundi X Chain hosted by the company.

The result shows that over 47.9% voted for naming the nodes after objects in Space. We’ve also received suggestions from the community to reserve some slots to name after the community members. Now we have opened four slots to be named after the top voted community members. This voting is open for all Function X Forum members. Each user account has four votes. To make this voting fair, please do not create multiple Function X Forum accounts to vote. FantastiX 4 - 2nd stage: Community voting

On the developer side, the team continues testing on deXPOS Application Beta 1.0 via Pundi X Chain and cross-chain support for Binance Smart Chain.

In line with the Ethereum London hard fork, we performed an upgrade on August 5, 2021.

XPOS ADOPTION

New XPOS Merchant Tutorial video available in multiple languages

To make the on-boarding process easy, we have created a series of XPOS merchant tutorial videos and published them on our YouTube Channel.

This month we started producing the video in different languages and with voice-over. The latest one is to instruct how to activate another new XPOS device under the same merchant account without going through the full registration process. English, Japanese, Korean, Spanish, and Portuguese versions are available.

More Pundi X Store opening in Turkey

Ovo, XPOS distributor in Turkey, brings the Pundi X store to the Grand Bazaar! The Grand Bazaar, the first covered shopping mall in the world, is an important landmark in history with over 550 years of trading.

Pundi X Swags and featured videos

We’d like to shout out to Karınca Trader for the efforts to produce Pundi X swags and videos featuring Pundi X. You brought out the very spirit of Pundi X.

Metaverse, Crypto, and DAO
Zac Cheah shared his thoughts on the fusion of the metaverse and crypto with DAO. Crypto has become open throughout the years and has attracted interest in it. With DAO’s system, it is considered to be the future of business. Stakeholders create a set of rules to be executed without the need of outside intervention.

Pundi X is in the direction of creating a DAO with its users. Participating in DAO, users can have a deeper understanding and wider perspective on how the blockchain governance works behind the scenes.

We aim to continue building a network that is open to users and creating meaningful discourse in improving Pundi X in general. Heading towards the third quarter, we emphasize collaborative effort in achieving the goals we have set from our humble beginnings.

We are excited about activities and events in the coming months, especially Pundi X 4th anniversary celebration. We express our thanks and hope you take care wherever you are around the world. Till next month!
