Q1'18 Major Achievements: Tokenization launch preparation, KYC, 39 Crypto Trading Pairs, LA DIRECT, ICO Listings and Global Expansion

One of the unique features of LATOKEN is that it enables issuing and trading of asset tokens. Trading of asset tokens has been already successfully tested and now we are finalizing licensing and structuring. A full scale trading of tokens linked to prices of real assets (stocks, commodities, ETFs and indices) is planned for Q2.

To enable trading of asset tokens we are developing LATOKEN exchange and other required infrastructure: upgrading the trading engine, interface and security system, developing a solution ensuring the maximum liquidity for trading, improving KYC process and launching new products to drive the user acquisition.

This made LATOKEN enter the Top-100 crypto exchanges, according to leading crypto analytic portals, e.g. Coinmarketcap, Coingecko and Cryptocompare.

Here is a short recap of what was achieved in Q1.

Product development

1. Trading platform upgrade

- Improved trading interface (order book, navigation)

- New multicurrency wallet

- New analytical tools (trading charts, estimated balance)

2. 39 crypto trading pairs launched

A total of 39 crypto pairs were launched, which brought a total daily trading volume to over $1 million.

All LA pairs have 50% cheaper trading fees which only amount to 0.05%. This is an extra incentive to get more people onboard and use our platform.

3. Launch of LA DIRECT

LA DIRECT is an instant exchange that allows you to convert cryptocurrencies without signing up directly on the main page. This is a great way for attracting crypto traders to our platform. So far, three cryptocurrencies are available for instant exchange (ETH, LA, Vechain) and six more top cryptos will be added soon.

4. ICO listing on LATOKEN platform

Four ICO projects currently accept contributions in LA on LATOKEN platform:

IPStock — Visual digital content solutionWell— Healthcare solutionPonder — Recommendations platformTranscodium — Video streaming platform

One of our targets for 2018 is to list over 100 high-quality ICO projects that will accept contributions in LA on LATOKEN platform.

5. New KYC form

We updated our KYC interface and introduced Tier 2 verification status that enables users to withdraw up to $100k in crypto per day.

Listing on major crypto wallets

LA got listed on several major crypto wallets, including ImToken, Coinomi, Eidoo, Enjin Wallet, MyCrypto and Citowise, which have a combined total reach of more than 4 million visitors.

Worldwide Expansion

In Q1 we continued to put a great effort in strengthening our partners’ network and promoting LATOKEN platform in the global blockchain community.
