October was a huge month to celebrate Crypto.com’s impact and reach across the world. We launched our first global brand campaign: Fortune Favours the Brave starring Oscar winner and humanitarian Matt Damon, directed by Oscar winner Wally Pfister and produced by David Fincher.
We are committed to building the future of the internet: Web3. Powered by cryptocurrency, Web3 will be more fair and equitable, owned by the builders, creators and users. The campaign highlights Crypto.com’s own ethos, while inspiring those who want to change the course of history with a timeless phrase first uttered thousands of years ago.

The campaign will be seen in 20+ markets which targets to drive mass adoption in full force. Earlier in October we reached an important milestone: 1M followers on Twitter. Thank you to the community — those who’ve been with us from the beginning and those who’ve just joined.
Our partnership with Matt Damon extends beyond the campaign, with our USD 1 million donation to the global non-profit he co-founded. The funds will be used to provide clean water to millions in need. Together, Crypto.com and Water.org believe that all people should have equal access to the platforms and life changing resources that support self-determination. Through this unique partnership, we will also be creating opportunities for the broad crypto community to join in and support this mission.
In preparation for Cronos Mainnet launch, we introduced Cassini – an incentivised testnet with a prize pool of up to USD 300,000 as the final dry run before the mainnet launch. Thank you to all the Testers and Builders who participated, event results and highlights are on the way. We are also halfway through the hackathon with multiple speaker sessions along the way to support the projects on board. We can’t wait for the mainnet launch on the 8 Nov!
Our product development pipeline has continued to accelerate across all platforms. Highlights include zero-fee stablecoin conversions on the Exchange, BTC and ETH Monthly Futures, and Exchange Derivatives launched sub-accounts; 5 new tokens on Earn with up to 6% p.a including SOL, AVAX and LUNA. The App became multi-chain for deposit & withdrawals,, with Arbitrum, Polygon, Solana and Avax-C support; DeFi Wallet + Browser Extension: Crypto.com Wallet Extension launched to easily connect the DeFi Wallet with decentralised apps (DApps). Read on for details about these updates and more.
