Tael Ecosystem Roadmap 2020 & Highlights of 2019

Tael Ecosystem Roadmap 2020

2019 was a transformative year for the Tael ecosystem. Through a combination of KOL marketing, pivotal partnerships, and constant tech progress, we’ve closed out the year with explosive mainstream user growth.

The rising number of Tael Ecosystem participants and real-world usage is not only an exciting benchmark for success but also benefits token holders in multiple ways.

Some of the highlights from 2019:

Growth Numbers

By far our proudest accomplishment is the explosive growth of real-world, mainstream Tael adoption. By the end of last year, the number of non-crypto Tael holders reached over 37,000, with the final quarter of the year seeing a whopping 161.54% of growth (which is over 1000% growth if annualized).

Cumulatively, these everyday consumers and users of Tael are responsible for locking 1,675,485 Tael (1.67% of the total token supply), with 1.03% of the total supply having been locked in Q4 2019 alone!

Through a combination of new partnerships (both in terms of the companies and the types of partnership) and the optimized KOL campaigns that we have coming up, 2019 has been a precursor to the kind of growth we intend to generate in 2020.


We created the Tael Adoption Page. Launched in March 2019, the adoption page is our way of ‘practicing what we preach’. We believe blockchain industry should move from being happy with “has a real product” towards “actually has a growing number of users”. The page allows our community to track our ecosystem’s progress in real-time through a variety of statistics.

For people new to Tael, our ecosystem description articles have been invaluable to newcomers and long-term supporters alike, explaining important fundamentals of the project and covering the majority of frequently asked questions:

1. Tael’s Business Model
2. Use of Two Blockchains
3. Tael Ecosystem Participants
4. Demand & Supply Drivers

The creation of our two-minute introduction video has also aided in educating newcomers on the Tael ecosystem in a concise manner.

Business Development

The Tael Ecosystem marketplace was awarded ‘Exemplary Company in Imported Product Traceability’ status by China’s consumer protection body, the first company in China to receive this honor. This official recognition allows us to leverage further collaborations, partnerships, and cooperations.

The Tael Ecosystem is the first company awarded this status

We also finalized a wide array of partnerships across industries to further aid the project, including:

Japan’s largest ecommerce platform

Mitsubishi UFG bank
One of the largest banks worldwide

One of the largest cross-border e-commerce platforms companies in Japan

Nature’s Care
Australia’s third-largest vitamin company

New Zealand Cherry Corp.
Producers of New Zealand’s highest quality cherries

With further partnerships in the pipeline, we’ve created an article explaining the types of partnership the Tael Ecosystem engages in and what they mean for the project:

Upcoming Partnerships: What You Need To Know

We’ve also greatly expanded our presence in Japan, added warehouses in China, and are set to integrate Tael with one of the largest department stores in Asia.


The Tael Ecosystem marketplace has seen a complete overhaul, becoming a WeChat integrated mini-app with a host of new features and a new look.

We also launched our Custom Enterprise Dashboard and detailed the many benefits our partners reap through their participation.

Our anti-counterfeit labels are the cornerstone of the Tael Ecosystem, which is why we published an in-depth look at their production and equipped the latest iteration of our labels with superior chips and dual-frequency capabilities.

Furthermore, we upgraded our warehouse encoding app to facilitate rapid expansion & scaling and created the fundamentals for the soon-to-be-launched enhanced Tael Consumer Scanning App.
