In April, Crypto.com rolled out more features, reached new milestones, and strengthened ties with new and current partners.
First, we celebrate Crypto.com NFT’s first anniversary with the launch of the Crypto.com NFT Anniversary Drop – Year 1 promo, as well as the rollout of a new ‘Top Collections’ section and support for Polygon-based NFTs.
Meanwhile, the Cronos ecosystem saw tremendous growth, highlighted by the recent milestone of reaching 700,000 unique wallet addresses. To further emphasise the growth of Cronos as an important part of building Web3, Particle B has rebranded as Cronos Labs, while maintaining its reputation as a renowned startup accelerator and ecosystem development fund.
On the product side, we debuted several major features across Crypto.com’s product suite, like Crypto.com App’s recent support of FAST (Fast and Secure Transactions) for Singapore users’ zero-fee deposits and withdrawals. We also launched Spending Power in Canada to enable Crypto.com Card customers to use crypto as collateral for funding their accounts.
We kept enhancing our trading offerings on Crypto.com Exchange which recently launched interactive windows, Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Lending and Dollar-, Cost Averaging (DCA) for Spot trading. Crypto.com DeFi Wallet also rolled out six new features, such as Nifty add-ons for NFTs, multi-tab browsing for DApps, the VVS Glitter Mine reminder, and support for multiple protocols per token, the Inter-Blockchain Communication (IBC) channel between Cronos Chain and Cosmos Hub, and Binance Smart Chain (BSC) support via PancakeSwap
Furthermore, Crypto.com Price recently introduced new features such as Yield Farming and Price Walkthrough. Through these innovations, our users are now able to check out comprehensive information about the world’s top liquidity pools, further cementing Crypto.com as a one-stop platform for all things crypto.
In other news, we are proud to announce that Crypto.com is the Sports Media Brand of the Year, in light of our historic partnerships with the world’s biggest sports brands, including the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™, UFC, and Formula 1®, as well as our landmark deal for the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, among many other sports-related endeavours. We thank Cynopsis Media for this recognition.
Another source of appreciation is the new 2 million follower milestone for Crypto.com’s Twitter account. This is a testament to the strong growth and support that the Crypto.com community has shown over the years. We look forward to sharing more community milestones with everyone.
We committed a four-year gift to the Digital Currency Initiative (DCI) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s (MIT) Media Lab, in support of their Bitcoin security and open-source development endeavours. We also worked with UFC to create new Fight Night bonuses in Bitcoin for UFC athletes.
Here are all the highlights from the month of April:
