Starting 2022 on the Right Foot
Happy New Year! The last month has been exciting and busy. Fortunately, we have managed to have a bit of time off over Christmas and New Year to see friends and family. Now, we are feeling refreshed and ready to tackle 2022!!
Since last writing, just before Christmas, there have been significant advances in our PLASTIK Token. The token has been listed on LBANK. The Token now works with the Delta Investment Tracker. We have also undergone a Certik Audit which only advised us to review 3 small things. We will be doing everything we can to make sure that these issues are resolved.
Since December, considerable progress has been made with the marketplace itself. We have been playing around with the Beta Marketplace to find out how to optimise it. This has all been done in a closed environment but now we are ready to open it up. On the 1st of February, we will be opening the Beta marketplace to anyone who wants to test it. Recyclers will be able to mint and list NFTs backed by Recovery Guarantees while ordinary users will only be able to buy and resell NFTs. So far, we have got recyclers involved from South America, North America, Central America, Africa, and Europe. We are excited to show them our marketplace. One of the first recyclers onboarded in Spain was Urbaser, a leader in Waste Management and Treatment, that fosters a culture of constant innovation which allows it to recover the most waste and minimise the environmental impact of waste.
The Team was also privileged to receive Josep Maria Tost Borràs, the former Director of the Waste Management Agency of Catalonia, at our office for a private workshop about the structure of the waste management in Catalonia, compared to the rest of Spain and to other countries in Europe. His insightful presentation demonstrated the need for political will and leadership, together with legal tools and a proper budget provision so communities can reduce the prominence of landfills and achieve higher rates of waste recovery. The content provided clarity to the Team, and it provided further context on how our technology can help companies accelerate towards a circular business model. A Medium article on what we learnt will be shared soon. Thank you very much Josep Maria.
We continue getting the word out there with several marketing strategies. Plastiks has featured in articles for the Tech Times, La Razón and El Español. We’re over the moon that 2 enormous journals have chosen to write about us. Tech Times has over 6 million monthly readers, La Razón has 260,000 daily readers and El Español has around 2.3 million daily readers. In addition to appearances in international media, we have continued with other ways to spread the word about Plastiks. 1,000 people have won in our Bounty Program. 437,400 PLASTIK tokens have been given away by BitMart in Airdrops, Buy & Earn competitions and Trading Competitions. $100 of PLASTIK tokens has been given away to some lucky winners. André, Plastiks’ Founder, has also heard all your queries in various AMAs and interviews with BitMart, with one of our partners and on our own Discord. André also spoke with Radio Intereconomía on their Blockchain Radio. We hope that you have had the opportunity to get your questions answered there. If you do still have any questions, ask André in our upcoming AMAs — find out more about these on our Twitter.
