Having forked successfully from Bitcoin (BTC) and ZCash (ZCL) on September 10, 2018, ANONymous (ANON) has come a long way in a relatively short period of time. Dishing out rapid developments left and right, the ANON community continues to march forward in pursuit of the vision set by its founder Jake “The Crypto King” Greenbaum.
For a more comprehensive post-fork recap of ANON, our readers can refer here.
Since the fork, there’s been much effervescence among the ANON community, and it’s not hard to guess why. A series of encouraging developments have propelled the privacy oriented cryptocurrency to the forefront of the crypto world.
Mainnet Release a Hassle-free Success

ANON’s Partnerships with Crypto Exchanges, Wallets, and Price Aggregators
On a more recent note, ANON has signed 2 deals with some of the top crypto exchanges in the last couple of days.
One of the crypto exchanges to have embraced ANON is the Mongolia based exchange platform, IDAX. The exchange has made its way past some of the biggest exchanges in the top 20, and broken into the top 10 exchanges in the world.
The other is the Korea based fiat pairing exchange, CoinOne. The exchange will open the vast Korean cryptocurrency market to ANON enthusiasts, where the token holders will be able to trade ANON for South Korean Won (KRW) and enjoy margin trading services.
Discussions are ongoing with many more exchanges for enlistment. The team tweeted the following on September 26 to give a comprehensive overview of the budding partnerships ANON has entered into – in less than a month since its fork.

One of the main takeaways from the press release talks about elimination of the process of manually building the masternode from the scratch – as the VPS packages with the ANON master node build will be pre-installed and customized for optimal use.
Another lucrative incentive for ANON masternode users who opt for either GOLD or PLATINUM package is the recurring 15 percent discount while placing the order. Interested users will require using the coupon code ANONMASTERNODE.
With regard to the technical prowess of the ANON VPS masternode packages, they will feature high quality quadcore / 8 threads servers, unlimited traffic, and unlimited antiDDOS protection, among other cutting-edge features.
Final Thoughts and the Road Ahead
The ANON team has been working relentlessly towards networking, getting the project listed, and pushing for more exposure for the privacy oriented crypto project. Expect a lot of encouraging news from the project team in Q4 of 2018.
ANON leader Jake Greenbaum traveled almost half the world to attend Consensus Singapore, where he networked extensively among the global crypto leaders and media personnel.
Surely, the future looks bright for ANON, and the loyal community should expect a lot of surprises coming its way.
