Hello from everyone at Fetch.AI,
What a week to celebrate a quarter of a century of weekly newsletters!
It’s been such a momentous week for us that it’s hard to know where to start. So let’s start at the beginning.
On Sunday we revealed more details about our technical roadmap for 2019.
On Monday our public token sale took place on Binance Launchpad. The level of interest from the community was overwhelming, and the sale was completed after 11 minutes and 14 seconds – with all the tokens having been bought within the first 22 seconds.
This success saw us receive coverage across the globe. We also received attention closer to home with local newspaper The Cambridge Independent covering the story:
On Tuesday we unveiled our new community web page. Here, individuals holding Fetch.AI tokens can gain access to our smart ledger, learn how to build autonomous agents and enable these agents to find, negotiate and trade with one another. We have big ambitions for this site and we look forward to seeing the community’s contributions on the test network. In addition, we announced how our Network Participation App and our Test Network Wallet will function.
On Wednesday chief technology officer Toby Simpson published a blog post on the topic of token utility and explained how FET tokens will allow individuals to explore the Fetch.AI digital world.
On Thursday the Fetch.AI token was available to trade on Binance for the first time. This was a hugely exciting moment for everyone and we have been delighted by the level of interest the listing has generated. At the time of writing, FET tokens are the second most traded cryptocurrency on Binance’s US Dollar Tether market:
On Thursday we also published a new video offering a glimpse of a future with Fetch.AI autonomous agents. The video shows how multi-agent communication between electric vehicles and charging stations will reduce congestion to make journeys quicker:
This video is just one of several showcasing our technology that we will be sharing with the community over the coming months.
Our head of business development Maria Minaricova has spent most of the week at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona where she has been working closely with our fellow partners in the Trusted IoT Alliance.
We attended the hackathon organised by T-Labs last weekend where TIoTA members used data from the Jaguar I-PACE car that will feature in the upcoming Electric Vehicle challenge. On Monday, TIoTA members gave a joint presentation at the Deutsche Telekom and T-Labs stall at the Mobile World Congress, which featured the debut of the electronic vehicle journey optimisation video shown above.
Yesterday we shared ideas with our TIoTA partners, where we reviewed the huge progress the organisation has made over the past year, welcomed new members including Siemens to the alliance and discussed plans for the mobility challenge later in the year.
As you can tell, it’s been a very busy and exciting week at Fetch.AI!
