Dear Borgerz,

Welcome to the May 2024 edition! Once again this month of May was nothing short of exhilarating, with groundbreaking developments in the cryptosphere, exciting progress within our company, and some pretty intriguing events happening around the world. Let's dive right in and explore what happened.

What's New in the Cryptosphere?

The cryptosphere was buzzing with activity throughout May. First some news of our King: Bitcoin, which after its halving in April, has yet to see the dramatic price increase that many had anticipated post-halving. Currently trading around $68,000, Bitcoin's price growth has been more gradual than expected. However, market analysts (and of course myself) predict that this is just a temporary pause and that the reduced supply will soon drive prices higher as demand continues to grow (amongst other factors).

Then what’s been up with our Queen: Ethereum has been making significant headlines with a recent surge in its price. This boost comes on the back of the approval of the first Ethereum ETF, which has sparked renewed investor interest and confidence in Ethereum's long-term potential. The ETF approval is a monumental step, indicating increased institutional acceptance and paving the way for more mainstream adoption of Ethereum.

And finally, what’s been going on with the new Prince in town: Solana has also been in the spotlight this month, experiencing a remarkable resurgence. The recent surge in meme coins has significantly impacted the Solana ecosystem, attracting a wave of new users and developers. Solana, known for its high-speed transactions and low fees, has become a popular platform for launching and trading these viral tokens. Additionally, the growing popularity of meme coins on Solana has spurred further development of decentralised applications (dApps) and decentralised finance (DeFi) projects, solidifying Solana's position as a key player in the crypto market and that’s precisely why we log it as 3rd in our ranking.

SwissBorg Updates

Here at SwissBorg, we’ve been riding this wave of excitement with some fantastic news and achievements of our own:

1. Partnerships: 

  • SwissBorg Partners with Kevin Follonier to Launch Exclusive Investment Club: We are excited to announce the partnership between SwissBorg and Kevin Follonier, host of the influential podcast When Shift Happens, which features top crypto thought leaders and Founders. The club is designed for long-term investors seeking to expand their exposure to the primary market while also taking advantage of opportunistic investments in the secondary market when the timing is opportune (i.e. when Kevin gets exclusive alpha and industry insights from its guests).
  • Tesla: Yes, you heard it right! We are thrilled to announce our collaboration with Tesla for a series of events. This partnership marks a significant milestone in our mission to bridge the gap between traditional finance and the crypto world. Get ready for some exciting initiatives as we explore new avenues together. First in line: an exclusive event in Lausanne on July 3rd.

2. Platform Enhancements: Our tech team has been hard at work, and we’ve rolled out several new features on the SwissBorg app: 

  • One of the most amazing is the Borger Journey. At SwissBorg we strive to simplify your journey to financial freedom. The latest upgrades to our app and ecosystem integrate existing and new utilities of our BORG token. SwissBorg’s key purpose is to democratise Wealth Management by making it fun, fair, and community-centric. This vision is embodied by the features that we decided to implement inside our SwissBorg app and work tirelessly on improving every day. Everything we do is to ensure that you, our community, are able to reclaim control of your wealth and reach the ultimate goal of financial independence.
  • Another big breakthrough is the BORG On-Chain: Blockchain technology is constantly evolving, and at SwissBorg, we're committed to staying at the forefront of innovation. We already envisioned a seamless integration of the off-chain and on-chain worlds, bringing together centralised (CEX) and decentralised exchanges (DEX). This vision has come to fruition. You can transition from FX to CEX to DEX through the SwissBorg MEX (meta-exchange aggregator) with a single tap. But we didn’t stop there... We couldn’t overlook our BORG token. That's why we're thrilled to announce a monumental step for our community of BORG token holders: the official launch of the BORG token on Solana, leveraging the cutting-edge Wormhole NTT technology! Looking ahead, you'll be able to lock and benefit from your BORG in-app supporting new projects needing liquidity for their token launches. This initiative aims to democratise an industry often controlled by centralised forces, giving power back to the community.
  • Once again, we have been very busy delivering: 
  • The hottest tokens on the app: API3 is a decentralised network focused on providing real-world data to blockchain applications through decentralised APIs (dAPIs), emphasising security, transparency, and efficiency. The initiative is driven by API3 token holders who govern the project and its developments, ensuring a community-driven approach.
  • The best Thematics: The RWA (Real World Assets) thematic is here! The sector is focused on bringing real assets that live off-chain onto the blockchain. As such, the case for RWA is simple: to bridge the gap between the stability and value proposition of real-world assets and the innovative features and potential efficiencies of blockchain technology and DeFi (Decentralised Finance).
  • The best yields: We have launched a new way to earn great rewards with USDC through a partnership with August Digital. The great thing about it is that everyone involved is verified, and there is extra protection if prices suddenly change. Borrowers have to put up more money than they borrow, making it extra secure. It is so popular that it is currently full for now, but more spots will most probably open up soon! Stay tuned!
  • The newest Alpha opportunities: CARV sits at the intersection of data management and DePin (Decentralised Physical Infrastructure) and focuses on the value creation of data, for both users and developers. It is currently the largest modular data layer powering the Gaming and AI sector and the full tech stack of CARV comprises three main products: CARV Protocol, CARV Play, and CARV AI.

3. Community Growth: Our community continues to grow at an impressive rate. This growth is a testament to the trust and support you all have in our platform. To celebrate, we launched a series of community events to keep everyone engaged and informed. We also had our annual Keynote meeting in Lausanne, and whatta night this was (English version here)!

As we look ahead, there’s so much to be excited about. The crypto market is buzzing with potential, and SwissBorg is poised to capitalise on these opportunities. We’re committed to innovation, growth, and most importantly, to you, our amazing Community. Thank you for being part of this incredible journey. Stay tuned for more updates and keep spreading the SwissBorg spirit!

Proud Founder and CEO of SwissBorg 🇨🇭, always here to serve you 🙏,

To the moon and beyond,
