July 11, 2021 is a special day for the SmartCash team and the entire community. The 4th anniversary of SmartCash as a cryptocurrency focused on instant everyday payments and known for features like SmartRewards, SmartHive voting platform, sending SMART via email and SMS, etc.
Let’s take a look at some of the important innovations introduced this year (starting at the end of 2020) and once again see how productive this year has been for SmartCash.
At the end of 2020, the SmartCash team released The Dutch style BusyBee.Auction, where any user can place bids and get a chance to complete a task. These tasks belong to different categories: outreach, development, testing, etc. The tasks presented on this platform are directly related to SmartCash and Bitcoin Confidential.
SmartCash team members have created videos on various topics such as “Changelly Pro Review/ How to buy SmartCash” and “Why accepting #SmartCash for your business is a no brainer – Spanish Video” and others. The Coinlance news portal has regularly published articles in Russian, Spanish, Portuguese and English. These articles are created on a regular basis, as are the Spanish, Portuguese, and Russian videos.

SmartCash has given a lot of coverage to merchants who accept payments in SmartCash. Merchants accepting SMART payments in their offline or online stores could get an official mention and of course be added to the SmartCash merchant directory.
Since late 2020 and early 2021, SmartCash has been doing an airdrop campaign called “Skin in the Game”, showing how the Time Locked Payments function works.
The decentralized SAPI explorer, running on top of the SmartNodes network, has been updated and improved. The SAPI Explorer also displays the yearly yields of SmartRewards, SuperRewards and SmartNodes.
SmartCash became available on Kamoney, a popular payment service that allows many options as payment processing, crypto to wires, sim charging, etc. Later, Kamoney also added an instant way of sending SmartCash to Brazilian bank accounts.
