2022 was a huge year for us at Aventus. Following the challenges of COVID-19, we sharpened our vision and got to work on our new strategic direction.
With a newly fully decentralised team, another crypto winter and a macroeconomic downturn, we’ve faced a number of challenges throughout the year. But, as ever, we met them all with grit and determination.
Looking back over everything we’ve achieved the last 12 months, from huge tech accomplishments, to team milestones and exciting partnerships, makes us more excited than ever for what’s to come in the next 12.
We couldn’t have done it without the support of our community, so we’d like to take this moment to thank you all, too.
Here’s to even more and better in 2023.
