UNIZEN WEEKLY PULSE #8
Edition 8: 21st January, 2022
Message from Sean Noga, CEO Unizen
We would like to welcome our community to the eighth edition of our Weekly Pulse.
Over the last week our development and compliance teams, together with key partners have been closely monitoring the operation of the Unizen Exchange module and compliance systems to ensure a secure, smooth and seamless user experience.
Of paramount importance is ensuring all Compliance & KYC systems are operational and effective. This enables our long-term vision of providing deep & compliant liquidity suitable for both retail as well as institutional traders.
Feedback from the compliance partners is that the Unizen Exchange Module is effectively filtering out unverified, rogue, or malicious users which is critical in ensuring our sustainable development is in line with the anticipated regulatory landscape.
As we continue to work at pace through the compliance phase, the team looks forward to expanding the utility of the exchange and delivering further enhancements and developments together with our partners.
Security & Compliance
At Unizen, a critical priority is ensuring the security & safety of the infrastructure that we are building. We work closely with a range of the industry's finest partners, who are actively engaged in the implementation and scaling up of each Unizen Module.
A key retained partner is Halborn whose expertise in blockchain security is unparalleled.
Halborn was founded in 2019 by renowned ethical hacker Steven Walbroehl and growth hacker Rob Behnke. The team operates a fully remote organization with over 50 of the best and brightest offensive security engineers in the world.
Halborn represents many of the largest names in the blockchain world including Coinbase, Polygon, Quant, Sushi, Thorchain, Bancor and BlockFi amongst many other blue-chip clients.
Together with partners like Halborn our team is uncompromising on our security and compliance focus which is at the forefront of our strategic decisions and development agenda.
Trading Pairs & Exchange Utility
As our compliance and development teams monitor the first week of active exchange operation, we are closely working with our qualifying partners to begin expanding exchange utility for our trading community.
Our strategic goal of providing a destination for both retail and institutional traders means that building our track record in security & compliance is key to the success of the Unizen Ecosystem.
In upcoming weeks we will start scaling the exchange, starting with the listing of the Unizen native token, ZCX, together with the introduction of additional pairs including selected ZenX incubated / accelerated projects as well as qualified partners that will be amongst the first trading pair releases on the exchange.
Unizen Exchange Support Channel
In order to provide direct dialogue with the team during the onboarding & compliance stage we have established a dedicated channel to support the community on any issues faced in both registration and ongoing experience on the platform.

Transition of Unizen Bridge to Polygon
Whilst the Unizen Bridge has specifically been designed to provide Multi Chain support, we have been in close consultation with key strategic partners on the initial release.
As such, the Unizen Bridge has been re-architected to release on Polygon first and foremost ahead of our Binance Smart Chain features, as we have identified significant future integration & synergy opportunities that will support the ongoing strategic expansion of the Unizen Ecosystem during 2022 and beyond.
The technical development schedule remains unchanged with the team engaged with our security partners and actively pressure testing the bridge to finalize the launch stage. Technical write ups to follow shortly.
