There has been so much going on within the Trusted Node ecosystem, and May saw the team successfully move forward on many strategic projects and partnerships.

Here is how things played out last month:

Partnership with Hex Trust, a Digital Asset Custodian

The security of the Trusted Node ecosystem is always our top priority. We are committed to guaranteeing the safety of investors’ funds. To this end, we struck a strategic partnership with Hex Trust, Asia’s leading digital asset custodian with expertise on digital asset custody via its bank-grade platform and state of the art security framework. We believe the move will immensely boost the security of our ecosystem and fuel some of our most anticipated features like Liquid Staking.

Partnership with ONTO Wallet

Collaborating with ONTO wallet was a significant milestone for Trusted Node and our users. The partnership results in the Trusted Node dApp and token being listed on the ONTO Wallet platform, enabling more awareness of the Trusted Node brand. Currently we are working on integrating ONTO Wallet within our dApp. This will allow ONTO wallet users to interact with our platform without having to deal with other web 3 wallets.

Trusted Node was also invited to an AMA session with the ONTO Wallet Telegram Community, with 80K+ members. The AMA was spearheaded by Trusted Node’s leader, J Garcia, who spoke extensively about Trusted Node and our ambitious goals.

Partnership with Node OAK Network

Our commitment to supporting great projects that add value to the crypto ecosystem has remained unwavering. In May, we announced our partnership with OAK Network and became a Turing network collator. By adding the OAK collator to our staking portal, we are aiming to enrich users’ experience for POS staking while providing them with an opportunity to earn a high APR on $TUR. Watch out for the upcoming AMA with David, Head of Growth from OAK Network, on Trusted Node’s Twitter Space, which will focus on introducing OAK Network to the TNODE community and giving details regarding our collaboration plans.

TNODE X Trustswap IDO Token Distribution

Trusted Node is built on trust and transparency. In line with this, we have kicked off the $TNODE token distribution to participants who purchased our $TNODE tokens during the Trusted Node IDO launch with Trustswap on the 9th of November, 2021.

Trusted Node Roadmap — A Message from Stefan

Our CEO Stefan talked briefly about some of our important milestones and our vision for the future of our product. His message covered our upcoming DAO Escrow, which is currently in the middle of a security audit with Obelisk. Being forked off the CRV model, our DAO Escrow will allow users to stake their $TNODE tokens for an opportunity to get a share of revenue. Holders will also gain voting rights on some of Trusted Node’s most important decisions.

Stefan also spoke briefly about enhancing the utility of our native token $TNODE with Paid Premium Features which will be launched soon. This feature further enhances users’ experience within the Trusted Node ecosystem, especially as it concerns compounding rewards, claiming multiple rewards and keeping track of transaction histories.

What’s more, Stefan’s post went into the dynamics of the upcoming liquid staking feature and our expanding ecosystem fueled by aggregating more blockchain networks.

In May, we successfully launched a new and redesigned website. It will be followed by further improvements of our UI/UX, from connecting wallets to claiming rewards and more. Through these UI/UX upgrades, we hope our users can enjoy seamless interaction within the Trusted Node platform.

DCentral, Consensus 2020 and Grit Daily Event

Finally, the Trusted Node Team was busy with preparation for the upcoming DCentral Conference and Consensus’ Grit Daily Event which will last from June 7 to 10. Our CEO Stefan will have many speaker sessions (including keynotes and panels) with topics covering DeFi, stablecoins, Web3, crypto investment and more. We look forward to meeting new friends there to discover more about possibilities in the DeFi space.
