Welcome to our monthly update! You may have noticed that our blog has moved as we have left Medium to bring home
the bacon the blog. We keep providing you with updates as we used to do. After some serious milestone lineup in April, May has been another month dedicated to investor and blockchain conferences to sustain the steady upward development of our platform. We keep advancing on the roadmap for Auctionity 2019, and our prospects have never looked better.
In May, we kept on going in the same direction as previously and participated in several meetings and conferences over the world. The objective is still to give more visibility to our platform and create strong relationships with our partners.
Our CFO Christophe pitched Auctionity during the US roadshow of the LATOKEN Blockchain Economic Forum. The Blockchain Economic Forum aims at facilitating the discussions of the most important topics of the crypto economy and its growing influence on the global economy, and it felt important for Auctionity to be part of this thriving community.

Tristan (CEO), Christophe (CFO), Begoña (Business Developer), Julien (Events & Partnership Officer) spent 2 days in New York this month at the Consensus 2019 conference organized by Coindesk. Consensus has been an annual gathering of the cryptocurrency and blockchain technology world. Since 2015, it has attracted every major company, developer, founder and investor in the cryptocurrency and blockchain world to engage in an annual discussion about the future of the industry. Following the Consensus conference, Begoña participated to the second edition of the Rare Art Festival in Brooklyn. The main objective of the event was to bring the rare art community together and showcase the best in crypto art.
Christophe (CFO) and Svetlana (Business Developer) were at the Malta AI & Blockchain Conference on May 23-24. With over 8,500 attendees, the conference really was the blockchain event not to be missed. We discussed the Auctionity platform and got to create new connections which was very rewarding on both ends. Some new possible partnerships could very well emerge from this event.
Auctionity will attend the International Digital Art Festival on June 26. This immersive event will showcase the very best in VR, AR, rare digital art, motion, and more importantly NFTs and blockchain technology from the worlds most respected artists, platforms and innovators. Begoña will pitch Auctionity and a special sale of 5 pieces of Crypto Art will be animated live by an auctioneer.
In May, we added KnownOrigin as a new category to the saleroom following the Creative Challenge that was launched a while ago. The Creative Challenge was a collaboration between Auctionity and KnownOrigin to encourage crypto artist to get the work out there and to allow them to gain more visibility and some prizes in ETH. 8 selected artworks were put up for bids on the Auctionity platform and an auctioneer streamed live to animate the sales and introduce the artists and their works. We are also expecting to add 2 new NFT categories to the saleroom by the end of June. Our collection keeps growing and we are very excited to have more and more categories on offer on Auctionity.
Our dev team has been working on a number of new features for the platform which have been built for specific use cases. We have also been allocating some time to clear out some of the more tedious tasks in our backlog. Over the past month, we have managed to complete the development of a number of vital pieces required to keep on schedule with our roadmap in order to improve Auctionity’s platform in the coming months. Next month, we will implement a new functionality that we will refer to as the multi-auctioneer feature. For now, the platform only allows for one auctioneer to stream live for a given auction. When the new feature is released, it will allow multiple auctioneers to animate the same auction sale at the same time and in different languages. Interested buyers will therefore be able to pick their favorite auctioneer according to affinity and language.
