August was a record breaking month — in rapid succession, we achieved milestone after milestone that helped us reach >$1 billion market cap and new all-time highs in website traffic, wallet downloads, token price, and much more! If you weren’t following the action this past month, make sure to read this update end-to-end as it’s loaded with an entire year’s worth of achievements. What a month!
To kick things off, we hosted a CoinMarketCap Learn & Earn campaign that brought 90,000+ new members to the IoTeX community. An incredible achievement, but just an appetizer — shortly after, we achieved our biggest milestone in recent history with our official listing on Coinbase. This triggered a waterfall of other top-tier exchange listings including Binance Futures, Huobi Futures, Crypto.com, Blockchain.com, any many more. These new US exchange listings and derivatives product offerings brought IoTeX to millions of new users around the world and forever cements IoTeX as a top-tier, regulatory-approved project.
With these massive milestones reached, what’s next for IoTeX? We answered that very question in a special livestream AMA with the core team on what's next for IoTeX. During this must-watch session Raullen, Jing, Larry, and Art added context to what has been happening at IoTeX, and more importantly our incredible plans for the future.
