2020 was a wild year in just about every way imaginable. While the world faced significant economic challenges, the blockchain industry was rapidly building and growing to take its rightful place as a crucial pillar of the global economy.
Halfway through 2020, TrustSwap was born as a simple solution to a glaring gap in the trustless escrow payments sector. Since then, it has grown exponentially adding additional software features and benefits for all holders and stakers of SWAP tokens.
Here is a reflection on some of our most notable accomplishments of 2020:
- Launched the SWAP token presale which sold out in <60 seconds.
- Developed an all-star team of industry heavyweights including Michael Gu (Boxmining), Ivan Liljeqvist (Ivan on Tech Academy), Mauvis Ledford (Former CTO CoinMarketCap), Michael “Mafiaboy” Calce (CyberSecurity expert and President of Optimal Secure), and Luke Wagman (Goldman Sachs & CoinMarketCap)
