New Year, New Developments!

January 2020
Happy new year! As we move into a new decade, we are excited to bring you new updates and developments, as well as a look back at significant points from the past year. To begin with, we have a new partnership to announce for the new year - the first of many that we hope to bring you in 2020.

2019 was a big year for Blockpass with a lot of updates, developments and events throughout. To make sure you didn't miss the most important parts we've highlighted them for your in a review of the last year. In addition, we have our latest blog post, which looks at KYC and how it can be effectively conducted. Finally, we sit down with researcher and content producer Matthew Warner in our traditional 5 Minutes With section. We hope 2020 brings you happiness and prosperity and that you enjoy all the news and developments we will be bringing you!

The First Partnership of 2020
We are proud to announce that the decentralized purchase, procurement and delivery platform BuyAnyLight (BAL) is the first new Blockpass partner to be announced in the new year and the new decade! Revolutionising the way in which LED lighting is sourced, the BAL platform ensures that users enjoy the best possible pricing on lights from BAL manufacturers.

Through AdPASS, Blockpass community members will be able to take advantage of a 5% rebate on any token sale purchases in PASS, in addition to any other promotions offered by BAL. Click here to read more about the announcement and BuyAnyLight.

2019 In Review
Last year was a whirlwind of activity for Blockpass. From events to app developments, from new partners to new content, we endeavoured to provide the best possible information and services. Most our work can be seen on our blog and social media, but given the sheer volume of it, we've condensed the highlights of the past twelve months down into a single post.

The 2019 review article takes a look at the most important aspects of our work, including updates from our partners at the Blockpass Identity Lab. Click here to read '2019: A Year Chock-a-Blockpass Full of Activity' and review the developments and milestones we achieved in 2019.

Enabling Effective KYC
Whilst we work on and discuss a number of areas relevant to Blockpass, the main focus is always on Know Your Customer regulations, as well as solutions to improve the KYC experience for users and merchants or businesses who have to comply with them. There are many pain points with traditional KYC compliance and we are constantly looking to alleviate these.

In our latest article, we take a look at KYC and how it can be achieved effectively in a world which is constantly changing and evolving. Click here to read our latest article and find out what the issues with KYC compliance are and how they can be solved.
