NKN 2020 year in review

Time does fly and it is already the moment to wrap up the year with a review of 2020. It was indeed a tough year for everyone, but fortunately we had been successful in both technology advancement and business development. NKN had launched our core products such as nMobile and nConnect on top of the dataRide platform, and won two commercial partnerships with Synology and ASUSTOR. We are also under consideration by Coinbase Custody, and actively traded on  Uniswap as one of the most vibrant DeFi exchanges. We went through difficulties and challenges, but we’re striving towards progress and goals.
