Dear HybridBlock Community,
Despite the bear market, we’ve had a busy and hugely successful month at HybridBlock. This week’s update includes HYB token airdrop information, ongoing HYBEX campaigns and promotions, and a special message from our co-founder Rod Jao. With much more to come from the exchange, BaseTrade and some other projects/partnerships we’re pursuing – we are looking forward to 2019!
“2018 has been a rollercoaster ride for HybridBlock. As a result of a number of security issues, we were forced to delay development of BaseTrade for over 3 months. I’m confident in the exchange we are building, but have never been okay with releasing a half-done product. ‘Do it big or don’t do it at all’ has been my motto through a number of business ventures with Apolo (Ohno) and we intend to follow this rule. We are currently signed on with 2 banks and are very close to finalizing BaseTrade with one of the best crypto exchange designers in the United States. 2019 will be another amazing year for us as we will kick our marketing engines into full blast upon BaseTrade’s release. We hope you all stay with us and continue to support us in delivering the absolute best crypto exchange possible.”
HybridBlock Token Airdrop
We are finalizing data analysis for the HYB airdrop. Please be sure to register for an account on Hybex.io prior to the airdrop using the same email address as your WeStart registration. Of the 10,000+ airdrop participants, only about 1,000 currently hold accounts on Hybex. We will finalize the token bonuses and send the airdrop out in December. Thanks again for the great support airdroppers!
HYBEX Exchange Updates
A huge milestone month for HYBEX, 4 months of trading completed! We’ve conducted our first new token listing with Litecoin, 0x, Augur, Endor and Quarkchain pairs now trading live. To celebrate the first new token listing, we’ve also initiated the “ZERO MAKER FEE” promotion through December 27, 2018.
More Token Listings
Part of our goal at HYBEX is to list more virtual currency options for various communities to buy and sell. Additionally, we prioritize secure custody of your assets. We’ve recently partnered with a top custody provider to bring an even more secure custody framework to exchange users. In the coming weeks we will also add a team of internal wallet developers that will enable us to list more tokens in the coming months. We hope this leads to more exclusive token listings and a quicker, more seamless listing process. Stay tuned for our next group of tokens to be listed in the coming weeks!
BaseTrade Upcoming Release!
BaseTrade development is nearly complete! We expect final turnover from the development team to happen within the next few weeks. After some internal beta testing, we will release to the public. A desktop, Android and iOS version are all planned for release. BaseTrade is expected to support fiat payment through major credit cards and/or wire transfers, all while providing some of the best prices for fiat-virtual currency. As a reminder, your Hybex account will be the same login credentials for BaseTrade and the balances will be the same on both platforms but all users on BaseTrade will be required to have level 1 verification to buy and sell.
HybridBlock Joins American Bar Association (ABA) Webinar Panel
On December 18, Nick Dimitriou, Chief Legal Officer of HybridBlock will join an ABA webinar with a panel of blockchain guests talking about science and technology law within the blockchain space. Topics include cryptocurrency markets, Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs), and crypto financial regulations. It will focus primarily on the regulatory framework in the United States, but will also provide an overview of how some foreign jurisdictions are approaching this new technology. Learn more here.
Hong Kong Blockchain Week
We are pleased to announce that our third annual Hybrid Summit will take place during Hong Kong Blockchain Week (HKBW) with our strategic program partner Chaineer.
Taking place between March 4-8, 2019, HKBW is anticipated to be the largest blockchain event in Hong Kong. With Hong Kong being the ‘Gateway to China’, ‘Asia’s World City’, the city is well positioned to be a leading international blockchain hub. Hong Kong Blockchain Week continues to play an important role in this endeavour. We expect over 3000 delegates to join us at HKBW, alongside over 120 speakers and 150 investors from 50 plus countries.
