As we move forward in Q2 2023, we would like to take a moment to reflect on the exciting developments and achievements that transpired in the first quarter. It was a demanding period that challenged us to the core, but we emerged stronger and more resilient than ever.

As the Founder & CEO of Bonuz, I’m excited to share the progress we’ve made during this demanding first quarter. Our dedicated team has refined our operations and mapped out a comprehensive blueprint, despite our small size.
We’re actively seeking collaborations with software development firms to accelerate our growth, and our latest MVP is nearly ready for testing. In addition, I’m initiating discussions with strategic partners and investors to secure significant funding to support our vision.
Our new website effectively communicates the essence of Bonuz, and we’ve been working diligently to comply with regulatory requirements in Dubai. In our Dubai entity, responsible for technical work, we’ve completed mandatory questionnaires for the Virtual Asset Regulation Authority. It’s important to note that the Dubai entity is separate from the $BONUZ token, which is associated with our Saint Lucia entity, Bonuz Inc., along with www.bonuz.market. We’re committed to collaborating closely with authorities, securing regulatory support to facilitate the gamification of the real world and bring the Bonuz vision to life.
As the driving force behind Bonuz, I’m deeply passionate and dedicated to its long-term success. Thank you for your unwavering support and trust in both Bonuz and me.
Founder & CEO
