Recap: Australian Leadership Retreat 2018

Image for post

SALT Lending attended the 2018 Australian Leadership Retreat, organized by the ADC Forum, in the Gold Coast of Australia. The four-day event hosted leaders from various fields including politics, academia, and financial services to discuss the current challenges facing the country. An ongoing shift in world
politics, along with advancements in technology, requires Australia to prepare for a new and uncertain future. Each session in the conference was followed by lengthy dialogue and welcomed thought-provoking questions. This was not a presentation on the solution, but rather an engaging discussion with a common goal in mind.

On the educational front, university leaders shared their thoughts on how best to prepare students for this new wave of technology, including areas such as machine learning, artificial intelligence, and blockchain. From designing new courses to exploring industry partnerships, educational innovation is of
utmost importance. A lack of proper schooling could leave students with misaligned skillsets as they begin their post-university career search. In addition to addressing formal educational programs, the city of Adelaide is planning to host a blockchain conference in early 2019 — one that is expected to be well attended.

Despite being a relatively new technology, blockchain was met with receptivity and openness. Several panels were dedicated to blockchain-related topics, which were followed by many discussions filled with intrigue and support. There is a growing community of blockchain companies currently operating in Australia, providing a meaningful opportunity for the country to position itself as a leader in the space.

We at SALT Lending look forward to following the continued progress in Australia and thank the ADC Forum for an incredible event.

SALT is Now Natively Supported on KeepKey Hardware Wallets

SALT is a big fan of the KeepKey hardware wallet, and when we released our SALT-branded versions a couple of months ago, they sold out in minutes. 

With a recent firmware update and the updated production client available on the Chrome store, KeepKey now natively supports SALT ERC-20 digital assets, which means that it’s now even easier to send SALT onto your account, receive it from your account or exchange up to 30 other tokens or supported cryptocurrencies to purchase memberships with our blockchain-backed loan platform.

This integration should prove to be simpler for users, who may be using digital wallets that are less intuitive, this integration simplifies things for users of one of the world’s leading cryptocurrency hardware wallets.

Ken Hodler, CTO of KeepKey said about this integration — “We couldn’t be more excited about natively supporting thirty ERC-20 digital assets, including SALT, our first-ever white-label partner. Users can securely send and receive SALT Memberships directly on their SALT branded KeepKey. Any user not holding SALT can easily use our ShapeShift integration to convert their current digital assets into SALT. We are elated to have this partnership with SALT, an innovative and industry leading lending company.”

We will be releasing additional information on Medium over the coming weeks, and if you want to stay up to date with all things SALT, our website offers the ability to contact the SALT Team directly for any questions or concerns.

Announcing 24/7 Member Support

A Message From SALT

Member Support 24/7 — Growing with the Community 

We understand that navigating the ins and outs of blockchain technology can be difficult. Although we love the technology, we want to be certain that we are doing everything possible to make the SALT experience pleasant for our members rather than interacting with a faceless technology company.

At SALT Blockchain Lending, creating real connections with our members is essential to our day to day work. Ensuring our team has the necessary tools to develop and nurture relationships with our community is critical to our success. With that, we’re happy to announce that SALT Members will now enjoy 24/7 email support. This expansion of our service is the first vital step to create lasting relationships with our members.

Staffing for the 24/7 support structure, we have expanded our Member Support team with additional resources in complimentary time zones. In building a team in the Asian Pacific (APAC), along with a greater expansion of our team in the Republic of Mauritius, we will always have available resources for our member queries.

Whether inquiring about our service prior to becoming a member, or further understanding the process that occurs at the maturity date of the loan, maintaining top customer experience matters. We want our customers to be as informed about the process as possible and, more importantly, to have the confidence that comes with knowing that a member of the SALT Team can be reached at any time.

Beyond the loan process, SALT members should know that they can reach out for general inquiries, trouble shooting, education around SALT Lending’s product line, or suggestions on how we can improve our business. If you’re already a SALT member or are simply interested in learning more, please contact us, at ANYTIME, with your questions at [email protected].
