What’s up, IX Swap community?
March is one for the books as our STO Swaps platform finally went live. There were challenges along the way, but we are very grateful for everyone’s support all throughout.
In addition to the launch, here’s a quick recap of what kept us busy last month.
Roadmap Adjustment Ahead
As a strategic move, we’ve made adjustments to our roadmap by bumping up our STO Swap Polygon integration from Q2 to Q1 so you can approve, stake, and confirm STO Swap transactions at a significantly lower cost and much faster speeds from the moment we launch the STO Swaps platform
We’ve also moved our F-NFT Primary and F-NFT Swap launches from Q1 to Q2 of this year due to the current geopolitical situation, which has led to reduced engineering support over the last month. This will ensure that our development team will have sufficient time to work on all aspects of our F-NFT services despite the reduced workforce.

CertiK Audit Is Out
We’ve nailed an impressive accomplishment this month as we completed our audit check with CertiK, a world-leading security firm that utilizes best-in-class AI technology to analyze, secure, and monitor blockchain projects. They have worked with several of the biggest names in the industry including Aave, Polygon, and Binance Smart Chain. Check out our article about it where we explain what it is and what it means for IX Swap.
First Security Token Listing Unveiled
We are proud to list the MS Token (MSTO) as the first security token available for trading on the STO Swaps platform. The token represents fractional ownership of the world’s most valuable sapphire, the Millennium Sapphire®, which is currently valued at US$150,000,000.
We Got Featured!
While we counted down the days leading up to the launch, we got featured as the “Company of the Week” in The Security Token Show while our press release appeared in several publications, including Box Mining.
For Company of the Week @tokenwig is going with @IxSwap ! 🏆— The Security Token Show 🌴 (@TheSTOShow) March 25, 2022
Hint: They are launching one of the first automated market makers for security tokens. Look out for their official launch on March 31st!
Congratulations to IX Swap and the entire team !

We’ve partnered with TerraChain, a primary issuance and management platform that empowers businesses and investors to take advantage of security tokens (STOs).
The collaboration aims to bring the opportunities made possible because of blockchain and asset tokenization to a wider audience by providing secondary trading opportunities for security tokens or other digital assets within TerraChain’s ecosystem.
We are also thrilled to join forces with Honeycomb Web3, a Singapore-based consultancy and advisory company that provides businesses with strategic and technical expertise to successfully embark on a Web3 digital transformation.
The collaboration aims to provide Honeycomb Web3’s business clients with the DeFi platform and blockchain-based solutions to help them effectively take control of their digital transformation narrative.
We went a different route for the community AMA in March by holding it in Telegram as a live chat session with IX Swap co-founder Aaron Ong and Head of Strategic Partnerships Darren Wong answering questions from the community. In case you’ve missed it, you can check out all the Q&As we’ve covered in our blog.
