Here’s a timeline of Beaxy’s year in 2020. The development, marketing, and operations teams collaborated to produce and promote 101 new implementations. Check out this recap of the top releases from 2020.
Beaxy Exchange 2.0 & Mobile Application
For Beaxy Exchange, 2020 really began with the beta launches for our 2.0 platform and mobile application. The process of curating a large focus group and testing different elements of our revamped platforms was equal parts exciting and challenging. Over the months of January and February, with a ton of work and a lot of help for our community, we refined and improved our beta platform and mobile app to the point that they were ready for a full public launch. With these solid foundations laid, the team went to work over the next 10 months implementing all of the following features, partnerships, integrations, programs, listings, and more.
There was no shortage of feature releases in 2020. Our team worked throughout the year to bring additional functionality to the platform wherever it made sense. In 2021, we look forward to improving these releases and delivering new capabilities that will improve our trader’s experience on Beaxy.
