Merge Update: February — March
Welcome to our second update of the year. February and March have been as bullish as it used to be back in 2017 and early 2018 for the altcoins. Driven by the continuous growth of Bitcoin, the crypto-sphere is benefiting from the increasing trust the population and businesses are granting to blockchain technology, its use cases and adoption to day to day life. And trending tokens, such as NFTs, along with new financial applications under the umbrella of DeFi are supporting this growth to limits yet unknown.
At Merge, we keep a close look to the new opportunities arising, and adapt to provide blockchain products that fulfil the needs of crypto enthusiasts and businesses, all while using our Tokenomics model to create win to win scenarios. Find out below what our team has been working on lately.
During the last two months, our development team has been fully focused on a major release for RocketBot. This release, v4, will bring RocketBot to a new level thanks to the addition of its API Payment Gateway, which will set the base for cross-chain operations. Chains such as Ethereum (L1 & L2), Binance Smart Chain, Tron, Polkadot, and Cardano, among others, will join RocketBot's ecosystem, that currently supports the standard chains from Bitcoin, Litecoin, Dash and PIVX. This means, for example, that RocketBot will be able to list and support any token belonging to any of the newly supported chains, like Ethereum.
The API Payment Gateway will also provide a standard API for any developers willing to integrate crypto payments into their applications, becoming the springboard for the success of their projects. By integrating a single page API payment system, developers will allow their users to make payments in their apps. And with the use of web-hooks, they will get notified automatically for every new payment that is made.
Besides the development of RocketBot’s API Payment Gateway, the current backend code has been updated for an improved experience when running giveaways and performing deposits and withdrawals. Find the latest documentation here.
Finally, two new coins have been added into RocketBot. We welcome Firo and Block-Logic to the RocketBot family!
Our Marketing team has continued applying relevant efforts towards the promotion and adoption of RocketBot on Twitter. This has lead to great results, with an increased awareness of the bot in this social network.
The number of giveaways, airdrops and tips on Twitter has been increasing considerably during the last weeks. Also, a fair number of crypto influencers have started using RocketBot, and have promoted it by running their own giveaways using the bot. This has produced results that the team at Project Merge did not expect to happen this fast. Find them below (stats from March):
We are happy for the above results. They push us to continue with the development and enhancement of RocketBot towards the level of becoming Merge's flagship product.
Until here, our February and March Update. We invite you to stay tuned to our news and announcements on any of the social networks listed below.
Thanks for reading and stay safe and healthy!
