Team Crypto.com pushed super hard throughout the month of September, releasing 100+ product improvements and enhancements, preparing for Cronos Mainnet launch coming 19 Oct, and announcing several historic partnerships.

On the product front, we continue to scale our teams and optimise the way we work together to accelerate the speed at which we improve our products. UI/UX and backend performance improvements were made across our entire product range. Notably, our platform had 100% uptime during even the most volatile days in September. We launched new features including Inter Protocol Swaps in the Crypto.com App, where users can trade all pairs between ETH, SOL, BNB, NEAR, AVAX, and more. We also launched the 5x/10x Margin Trading feature in the Crypto.com Exchange, as well as the Q1 ETHUSD and BTCUSD Futures Contracts for the Derivatives Exchange. Crypto.com Tax is now available to users in the U.K., after its release in the U.S., Australia, and Canada.

As far as preparations for Cronos Mainnet launch go, we introduced the Cronos Incentivised Testnet, Cassini, with USD 300,000 in incentives for testers and builders. On top of that, we launched the new Cronos testnet, which aims to provide a better developer experience via improved EVM debug-trace logging. The mainnet launch of Cronos is set for 19 October and we can’t wait to introduce all the great projects—save the date! The first-ever Cronos Hackathon has officially kicked off with a USD 500,000 prize pool and we are calling for developers and projects to start building on Cronos.

After partnering with world-class organisations and brands, including Formula 1, the UFC, and the NHL’s Montreal Canadiens,  we expanded this list with Paris Saint-Germain, Philadelphia 76ers, and Fnatic in September.

Finally, we also expanded our total insurance coverage to USD 750M this past month, after renewing our policy led by Arch Underwriting at Lloyd’s Syndicate 2012. Crypto.com’s insurance programme is now one of the largest in the industry.

Read on for details about these updates and more.
