The period January 12-19, 2018 was highlighted by the development of the Dentacoin Partner Network. We entered the US market by partnering with LifDental (a dental chain with three dental practices in Buffalo, New York) and Aura Family Dentistry (a dental practice in Simi Valley, California). Moreover, another UK-based practice started accepting payments in DCN as well: Quality Affordable Dentistry, Hemel Hempstead. Dentist3 (Selangor, Malaysia) and Daily Care Dental (Suva, Fiji) also joined our network.
From the inquiries we received during the week, we also think it’s important for us to emphasize on the following as well:
- Cryptopia is still under maintenance. “Cryptopia will be standing up new sister sites such as ltc.cryptopia.co.nz to handle base markets dedicated to LTC on their own trade engine and database to allow them to continue to trade, and allowing cryptopia.co.nz to resume registrations.” (source: Cryptopia website https://www.cryptopia.co.nz/News). However, you can still withdraw your Dentacoin tokens from Cryptopia.
- Due to high load and transaction security updates on DentaVox/ Trusted Reviews, there are delays in the transactions. However, all pending transactions will be processed. If the transaction status is “Unconfirmed”, that means that once the updates are finished, you should initiate the transaction again.
