Dear TIOnauts,

I hope that in these tough times that you are finding some joy and peace amid this great pandemic. As we roll into May in my geographical area, we have blown past our first proposed end to the lock down; we anticipate that we will miss the next one as well. As always, I hope that you and yours are safe and secure during these difficult times.

Across the companies, our contingency plans for working during a global dislocation like this continue to go as smoothly as possible. We were very pleased that, even in light of the work challenges, we were finally able to deploy the hotly anticipated “Buy TIOx” button. We are glad to provide a method for new or old investors to add to their stacks if they choose. I hope that the new buying opportunity will also help add some liquidity to the exchanges where we trade. To celebrate the launch we are running a limited time promotion, offering up to 30% in bonus TIOx to anyone who purchases over 15,000 TIOx and deposits them into their Signature account.

Additionally, while deploying the Buy TIOx button, we took the added step of streamlining the interaction between TIOmarkets and TIOprime to make the experience more seamless for investors. All of the liquidity pool interaction, sign up and access is now automated on TIOprime.

I hope that you all get a chance to check out the new features and try out the buy button. I would like to offer a big congratulation to the development and marketing teams for a successful launch after a great deal of hard work. Please join me in thanking them for a job well done.

For TIOmarkets, we had another great month. While there was a little more volatility this month based on the global market turmoil, we are still growing and added a record number of new users again in April. As always, there is a great deal more work to do but we are getting there and moving in the right direction. If you have not tried out TIOmarkets, please check it out. If you would like, you can look to helping us increase our domain authority (and to get as much traffic as possible) by leaving us a good review on trustpilot, by sharing one of our blog posts or even sharing our URL on your website, if you have one.  

Don’t forget that if you are worried about how the fast-moving markets might affect your investment during these times, we have set up a dedicated webpage providing up-to-date market information plus webinars, podcasts and more. Please bookmark this page to keep apprised of any market news that might affect your trading portfolio, or if you are interested in seeing how industry leaders are coping with the crisis. 

Just as a reminder, this update was published on Telegram and the TIOmarkets blog, publicly available to view here: We are changing the way we send emails in response to feedback from the community about spam and no-receive challenges. Any TIOnaut who has signed up to TIOprime, TIOmarkets (or who is in the Liquidity Pool) will remain in our database and will continue to receive important TIOmarkets news. If you have not signed up on any of those spots and wish to continue to receive email updates, please do so at this time.   

That is all for this month TIOnauts. I hope that you are healthy and safe and are finding some light at the end of the tunnel wherever you happen to be located. For our part, we are going to keep doing what we are doing, trying our best to bring value to TIOx through growing our business.
