DEXON: Looking back on 2018; moving forward to 2019

It’s hard to believe that the year is over so let’s look back to see what we have done in 2018 and see what to look out for in 2019.

DEXON Foundation

With the great success of launching the testnet, we are now in discussion with IDG Capital, who initially led the first round of 20M USD private placement investment in DEXON, for further cooperation and investment.


Gemstra has announced migration to DEXON from Ethereum to DEXON as the US-based social-selling eCommerce platform, and Taiwan’s largest gaming company (with over 60K daily active users) is now cooperating with us to reach mass adoption through blockchain technology.

DEXON Consensus Algorithm

DEXON’s Consensus Algorithm has also been published on official scientific journals.

The DEXON economic whitepaper was published at the beginning of July with the latest update, version 1.2 available since the 10th of October.

DEXON Testnet

DEXON’s testnet was officially launched in November 2018 with an all-time high transaction speed registered at 12.7K transactions per second (TPS), surpassing almost all existing blockchain records.

With the launch of DEXON testnet, this grants us an unparalleled chance to show the world the results of our vigorous efforts over the past year, as well as to show that our investors and community’s confidence in our team and our vision has been worthwhile.
