Throughout 2019, we have actively worked on creating new products and technologies. As of today, our products have the potential to enable us to reach our main goal for 2020 - a tenfold increase in our community, to reach 5 million people! In order to reach this goal, we have planned 30 massive events in the largest cities in the world. We have decided to start with Asia because this region is like a klondike for ambitious leaders who are interested in learning about modern technologies.
Today, Asia plays a crucial role in the cryptocurrency market. This is where you can find a concentration of the most powerful mining pools, where the most successful ICOs and IEOs are launched, and where exchanges with the largest trading volumes are developed by Asian programmers. Let’s take a look at some figures from a report on the state of mining, ICOs and IEOs in the Asian region from the analytical company CoinGecko.
The report illustrates the fact that over the past five years, cryptocurrency mining has become focused in China - with 8 of the largest pools located in the country, 6 of which are owned by Chinese companies. China also owns Bitmain, the world’s largest manufacturer of mining equipment, which controls two of the largest mining pools - BTC.com и Antpool. These pools allow Bitmain to control approximately 40% of the hashrate capacity.
Singapore is in the lead when it comes to ICOs and IEOs - in 2018, a record 228 projects were launched in this small country, raising a total of $1.6 billion.
Asia is also a leader in terms of the number of cryptocurrency exchange launches. According to the report, the number of new exchanges has seen a 706% increase over the past year and a half, and 40% out of these exchanges were created by Asian teams. Many of these exchanges have record daily trading volume — FCoin, Binance, BitForex, HitBTC, OKEx and others.
These figures are yet another reason for us to enter the Asian market - we have made the final conclusion to enter this market and started on our large-scale roadshow! We have hosted events in 9 countries and 10 cities in Asia: Seoul (South Korea), Istanbul (Turkey), Manila (Philippines), Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), Hong Kong (China), Jakarta (Indonesia), Bangkok (Thailand), Mumbai and Delhi (India), Hanoi (Vietnam). We rounded off our roadshow with a city outside Asia that is nevertheless very promising in terms of technology development and local community - Kiev (Ukraine).
