Blockchain platform DECENT expands to China and Armenia
DECENT, a peer-to-peer content distribution platform, has embarked on a large-scale international expansion of its office in China and Armenia during their successful ICO that will conclude on November 6, 2016.
Decent recently opened a new office in Shanghai along with 40 high-level fintech companies. The company has announced a partnership with two rapidly-growing Chinese firms Beijing Fastweb, which is a leading content delivery network and Aikxian, a fast-growing video live-streaming company. DECENT’s move to expand its services in China will not only boost the company’s user base but also expedite blockchain adoption in the most populated continent in the world.
“Pushing into China is a benchmark moment for our company. There is so much potential in the Asian market and the thirst for blockchain-powered solutions, especially to problems like piracy, is growing by the day,” Matej Michalko, co-founder of DECENT, said.
Apart from China, DECENT has established Blockchain R&D Hub in Yerevan, Armenia, which is the first blockchain research and development hub in the Caucasus region. It aims to create products and solutions that enable the convenient, direct, and secure exchange of digital content globally, leveraging Armenia’s unique pool of talent in technology as a catalyst for development.
“We are also excited about our developments in the Caucasus. Armenia has presented itself as a fertile climate for software developers who have their hearts set on innovating in blockchain technology. To that end, we are establishing the first-ever blockchain hub in Yerevan and hope to gain backing by the Armenian national government, which will dramatically accelerate blockchain expansion in the region. Many throughout the world are unaware that the area is a hotbed for talented software developers and technology enthusiasts, who will be the key to fueling education and adoption in this corner of the globe and beyond,” Michalko added.
Along with the international expansion, DECENT has also partnered with the Hackereum Project that will see white-hat hackers carrying out attacks and pinpointing vulnerabilities in order to eradicate any software malfunctions and ensure the protocol is watertight.
After the DECENT ICO concludes, the company plans to issue its DCT tokens to investors no later than Q2 2017.
