Hey there, Kado community. As we reflect on the first quarter of 2023, we’re happy to see that the crypto market has had a strong rebound, providing a positive start to the year.
At Kado, we’ve been working hard to enhance our platform and expand our capabilities to better serve our customers. We’re thrilled to share three major updates we’ve already launched this year. We have focused on product features surrounding our core pillars: driving access to and utility for digital assets.
First Things First 1️⃣ We’re excited to announce that Kado is expanding its operations and opening offices in Europe! We’ve been working on this since the start of the year, and we’re happy to announce we will soon enable support for EUR bank transfers with SEPA and Open Banking.
While we already support the EU and EEA with Visa and Mastercard, this expansion will bring new payment options for European customers, new partnership opportunities, and infrastructure advancements. We understand the need for alternative payment methods, and SEPA and Open Banking are a constant ask from our customers. This is just the beginning. Kado will soon add even more payment methods in the near future.
Dark Mode 2️⃣— In addition to adding new assets to our solution, we’re also focusing on improving the user experience for our customers. You can now use Kado in a sleek and stylish dark interface, making it easier on the eyes and reducing strain.Protect those eyes while you make your gains.
Swap 3️⃣ — With Kado, users can easily buy, sell, and now swap assets across chains and on the same-chain. It’s your assets, in your wallet. Swap with no-KYC and instant finality, powered by our partnersLiFi and Squid Router.
New Assets and Blockchains 🌠 We’ve also been busy adding new assets to our platform in Q1. We’ve launched support for several new layer 2 blockchains, including Arbitrum, Optimism, and Polygon, along with support for ATOM and the Cosmos Hub. With these new additions, Kado now supports 13 blockchains and looking forward to even more blockchain launches in Q2 2023.
What’s Coming Next 👀 We’re proud of the progress we’ve made so far in 2023 and excited to continue building features for ecosystem partners, every day users, and developers like you.
In the coming months, we’re doubling down on innovation and we’re going to be launching more ways for you to get your capital where you want it to go:
Auto Ramps — for you disciplined investors
Direct to Defi (Direct to Smart Contract) — for the defi homies
The Kado <> Osmosis Router — for our Cosmos frens
More Payment methods — for everyone
Finally… As early as we all are… we know that in web3, you have a lot of choices in tools to use. For the rest of the year, Kado is working hard to make sure that when you use, talk about, or share Kado, you get rewarded and feel recognized for doing so and being part of this journey with us. This is going to be exciting — come back often. It’ll be worth it.
