18~23 May (start 0:00JST)
Crypto Asia Summit is a large online summit with some very well known speakers and interesting topics. Tickets are free.
Would love to see ca333 appearing at some of these events. With things online now, travel isn't an issue.
For us in the audience it is a good chance to mention the Komodo name where appropriate.

I have asked myself this many times and often hear it from other.
There are many things that you can do to increase the value of Komodo.
Small individual actions will add up to large results over time and when these actions are done by many, big things can happen.
I'll give an example of something you can do now that would only take a few minutes of your time but would greatly benefit us all.
The Marketing Department has been doing a good job of getting the word out about Komodo and you have probably seen posts on what they have been up too.
If you were to choose one or two of the recent articles about Komodo, share them where you can and even leave a comment regarding Komodo, it would be very helpful. I'll put links to 4 recent examples below.
Give it a try!
(Update: Here's a new podcast with ca333 that you could help with. All it takes is a few minutes of your time to do a share or two...
As you probably know the Komodo Notary Node Elections have kicked off.
There are many great candidates running to support Komodo and its Ecosystem in the coming year. You can see all of the candidate proposals here to get an idea of their platforms and qualifications. Election statistics can be found on CHMEX's very helpful site.
One of these proposals directly supports my work here and so I ask for your votes.
You can do this by sending your VOTE2020 tokens to Node-9 [EU] at this address:
It is possible to vote for multiple candidates and I would be grateful for any that you could send to Node-9.
Below are a few place you can find some Komodo Documentation to get you started and help you find answers.
You can find AtomicDEX, Smartchain and Antara Module docs along with tutorials, guides and lists of Komodo and third party resources. There is focus on use, development and troubleshooting.
Articles & News
The KomodPlatform.com website also provides a great wealth of information and can give ideas on what to search for in the documentation. You can find overviews of the Komodo Technologies, and information related areas that may appeal to Enterprise and Enthusiasts alike.
And you are always welcome to ask here, in the community portal. I'd be happy to hear from you!
Please add your own resources below...
To the AtomicDEX Team ++,
The hard work you are putting in to find solutions for problems that no others have been able to overcome is inspiring. What you are working on has the potential to change the world.
I quite often think of the inconvenience, restrictions and dangers of dealing with centralized exchanges (CEX) when the benefits of AtomicDEX come to mind. For many though, they don't even have the option of these problems.
The empowerment that your creation offers the 'un-exchanged' is enormous. This technology will allow millions around the world that don't have access to banking, let alone centralized exchanges, access to a worldwide economy.
With the further development of decentralized lending and adoption of crypto-currencies, AtomicDEX goes a long way towards making these services available to the people who could so greatly benefit. Truly life changing matters here.
I'm picturing an Eritrean farmer buying seeds for next years crop, or a central American craftsman selling goods. The currency they deal in virtually becomes a non-issue.
Please know that your efforts are greatly appreciated and will be even more so in the future.
Development Team ++
- Kadan Stadelmann – Chief Technology Officer
- James Lee – Core Developer, Founder
- Artem Pikulin – Senior Software Developer
- Artem Grinblat - Senior Software Developer & DEX Engineer
- Yuri Khiznichenko - Full Stack Developer & Frontend Engineer

- Roman Sztergbaum – Software Developer & Blockchain Architect
- Many others involved in support, testing and development (TonyL, gcharang, smk762, Cipi, Oszy...)
- And of course the users, who realize the potential and put up with the difficulties that come with early adoption
As one of your Ambassadors I am occasionally contacted regarding Komodo.
This happened a few days ago when I was offered the chance to talk about Komodo and tools in the Digital Democracy space.
I'm somewhat embarrassed to say I don't know much of what is happening in that area.
The first thing that jumped to mind on hearing Digital Democracy was 'Vote!' and the specific technologies we have relating to that. Thinking that there must be more I started to ask around.
I reached out to people, some of the various projects in our Ecosystem and projects based on the Komodo Platform. In no particular order I got in touch with Hush, Marmara Credit Loops, Verus, RedFOX Labs, Pirate Chain and KMDLabs.
Visiting these projects, each with their own goals, motivations and beliefs, brought me back to thinking of what we are really building and offering here at Komodo. To me this comes down to two things.
Freedom and empowerment.
Maybe you don't like something that is being done or maybe you have a revolutionary idea. The years of effort made by contributors from all around the world have put the power to make change and the tools to create into your hands, and into the hands of people from all walks of life.
I saw a great example of this today.
Two projects based on Komodo, each having very admirable but different focuses, worked together in searching for answers that would benefit all. They discussed ideas and how their projects and technology could provide solutions to a problem. It was synergy in action.
(Komodo Discord, #ask-jl777, starting here)
By building this open-source platform, along with the very powerful tools it contains, Komodo empowers users and developers. And they don't need Komodo's involvement to make this real. They can freely take what is being given and do as they please.
This is the freedom Komodo gives.
More than any specific technology I see this freedom and empowerment as Komodo's greatest contribution to the cause of Digital Democracy. You now have the tools and platform to put your own ideas and systems in to practice and to use or test and develop the technologies they rely upon.
How do you see things?
I would like to hear your thoughts about the tools that Komodo has or can provide towards Digital Democracy.
Digital Democracy seems something worthy that many of us here would like to support.
What do we as Komodo and its Ecosystem offer, both specifically and in general?
It has been busy two months since the last update from Tokyo. Mid-February saw many events being attended with plans for a similar level of activity over the following two months. There were many large blockchain and crypto related conferences and events scheduled for an extremely busy spring.
Unfortunately world events conspired against this and all of the major events were cancelled. The upside of this is that more time has been available to build upon existing relationships and re-evaluate strategies and tactics while turning focus towards online activities.
Best wishes to the Komodo community on getting through the extraordinary recent events and many thanks for your support.
Here are some of the events, conferences and meetups that Komodo has attended in Tokyo since February 2020. During this period I also had a few meetings, representing Komodo, and managed to gain some valuable contacts.
