Kick Ecosystem 2022: What comes next?
Letter from Anti Danilevski, Founder and CEO
Dear KICK Community Members!
2021 marks a true starting point for the Kick Ecosystem. Just this year, for example, in February, the KickEX exchange became fully operational, opening the door to limitless development possibilities. Our long journey has just begun, but we can already share a small part of our mutual victories with you.
Some of our achievements in 2021
- We’ve been developing the KickEX app for iOS long and hard, and we’ve been able to successfully launch it in 2021. It’s beautiful, user-friendly, and is highly rated by users;
- We’ve finally begun public testing of the Android app and we’re making it a little better every day with your help. Given your fantastic support, there’s a good chance the app will be published by the end of February!
- During this year we listed 43 coins on the exchange and integrated 7 blockchains;
- We’ve received a TM registration certificate in Europe, and we’re working on getting a license in Canada;
- We’ve completely revamped the KickEX referral program: now, it’s even easier to generate a passive income, and many people have already started using it;
- We’ve launched staking for KICK, KISHU & SAFEMOON;
- We’ve launched KickWin lottery;
- KICK has become a deflationary token, and more than 15% of its entire emission has already been burned;
- КICK: we made the very last KICK token swap in history and switched to the BSC blockchain. This reduces the fee for token transfers by a factor of hundreds;
- KICK is now listed on PancakeSwap;
- KICK is now listed on BitMart;
- KICK was listed on Bithumb Global, and now we’re waiting for them to move to KICK BEP-20.
Plans for 2022: margin trading and marketing
2021 is a thing of the past, and now we’ve got our focus trained on the most important thing yet: margin trading. In 2021, we finished the design documentation, and this year we’re starting the technical implementation. Let’s talk a little bit more about that.
Some of you already know this, but there are a great many systems of margin trading out there: from disguised binary options to all sorts of futures. We’ve decided to pursue the most modern, advanced, and most sophisticated system: perpetual futures. There are only two exchanges in the cryptocurrency world where this type of trading is implemented, which shouldn’t come as a surprise. Such a feat is not easy to accomplish. The strength of our team, though, is limitless, and we’ll see that it gets done. This will move KickEX into a completely different league of players. What is also important is that we’ll no longer be idle on market declines, like we are at the present moment, but on the contrary: you’ll be able to short the market and not lose money on corrections and declines, instead turning a profit. And that changes everything drastically for all of us.
We will do everything possible to make perpetual futures trading available on KickEX and mobile apps as early as 2022. This is what we will focus our entire team on in the coming year of the tiger and finally, by your side, we’ll go out on a real hunt.
When it comes to other plans, many of you are waiting for the start of marketing. We’ve already started the preparatory work and are now integrating analytical platforms with the exchange and apps. The preparation will presumably take us 1–2 months, and then we will start small tests to test the market and optimize advertising campaigns, so that when we launch margin trading, everything will be ready for the start of advertising and other marketing activities.
We thank each and every one of you for your support, great contributions, and active participation in improving our existing products and implementing our new ones. 2022 will be a game-changer for us, and the Kick Ecosystem roadmap speaks for itself. It’s no secret that cryptocurrency is revolutionizing traditional finance, which means that you and I are truly changing reality!
Stick with us and keep trading on KickEX. Each trade you make on our exchange is important and brings us closer to the day we can start counting down our launch into space!
