Dear TIOnauts,

I would like to begin by wishing you all a very happy New Year from all of us at the family.  We are just coming off celebrating a wonderful Christmas here.  I hope that, for any of you whom celebrate it, that it was as magical as possible with any current travel and gathering restrictions.  From all of us breathing a quiet sigh of relief to close the books on 2020, we wish you all renewed happiness, prosperity and safety in 2021.

With the first full year of TIOmarkets now in the books, I think that it is worth a look back at the year that we had during 2020.  After opening our doors in 2019, we had looked to 2020 as the critical growth year where we would really hit our stride.  When the global pandemic arose, it certainly created a significant challenge for a company so young and during such a critical time for our growth.  It would not be too much of an overstatement that COVID hit TIOmarkets at the most vulnerable stage of its development as a young company.  I am certainly pleased to report that not only did we weather the storm, but we grew at a fantastic rate.  We added tens of thousands of clients, millions of dollars in trading volume and have become an established participant in the global FX world.

However, we are not resting on our laurels.  We have just launched a new and improved website and are continuing our expansion with more hires planned and more regions and countries on our list to serve.  This is on top of the nearly three dozen new hires we made and over one-hundred countries we entered – all in one of the worst business climates in modern memory.  Please join me in congratulating our entire TIOmarkets team on a job well done.

I am going to leave the rest of the letter brief.  Suffice it to say, with the ongoing crypto renaissance, we have decided that now is the time to push the revaluation of TIOx.  It is my expectation that I will be back to you within the month with the full slate of plans that we have developed to restructure the liquidity pool and drive the value in TIOx that it deserves.

  • 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 yet signed up on any of those spots and wish to continue to receive email updates, please do so at this time.  

I’m going to leave it there for now TIOnauts.  We have lots of work to do to bring the anticipated TIOprime news to you in short order.  Meanwhile, rest assured, we are just as committed as always in 2021 to bring value back to TIOx.
