Hashbon Rewind 2021
Happy New Year, HASHkeepers!
We’re starting off the end of the year by saying that 2021 has been a very remarkable year for Hashbon! Not only has Hashbon reached milestones as our Rocket soared to new heights, but we’ve also gained many new members along the way, extending our family of HASH stakers and crypto enthusiasts! We’d like to say that we’re truly glad to have spent this year with you and are excited to explore new horizons with you guys along our side.
“A year ago, Hashbon was a different company. We started off in 2016 and developed as a small team working on a wallet and a payment gateway. Now Hashbon FiRe is an ecosystem, satisfying the community’s CeFi and DeFi cravings. It is all thanks to our Team of Talents and Family of HASH HODLers” — Grigory Bibaev, CEO and Founder of Hashbon.
