Message from the CEO - December 2018
Dear TIOnauts,

I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season. As I pen this January edition of my CEO letter, I am finishing up my first 30 days as CEO, and what a month it has been. I am proud to relate some of the big steps that we have taken since I last wrote. The fantastic team at trade.io has been hard at work and, among other things, has completed the following:

Deployment of a revamped Home Page
Multiple enhancements to the exchange, along with the introduction of new tokens including Stellar & DAI
trade.io & TIOx have been listed on CoinMarketCap
Introduction of mobile friendly browsers
Release of our institutional level API
AMAs from our incredible CTO Marcin Zduniak and yours truly
Live Moderated Chat on the exchange
FX & CFD trading via our sister company, TIO Markets
Soft Launch of our NEST co-working office space in Malaysia


A pretty stout list of accomplishments, if I do say so myself. The best news is that we are not done, not by a long shot. The first quarter of 2019 will be a busy one for us here at trade.io, with the following items on our "to do" list (among others):

Implementing dozens more tokens and chains, including XRP, NEO, EOS and stable coins
Adding at least one European regulation
Integrating fiat payments for the exchange
Standalone sites for TIO Markets for Saint Vincent & FCA entities
Various enhancements to the exchange, including innovative products

In addition to the above, I will be continuing to take a hard look at all of our departments and the state of the crypto industry with the goal of finalizing a report for our board of directors to deliver in the first part of January. Despite the increases in volume we have seen on the Exchange and the small year-end bump in crypto across the board, there is much to be done with regards to delivering for our TIOnauts. Even in light of our hard work and progress, I see significant room for improvement. There is a lot to be done yet, including ramping up our marketing efforts now that the Exchange is performing more in line with expectation and rationalizing our ongoing businesses, including some potential cost cutting and reallocation efforts. Lastly, we’ve started leveraging our contacts in the institutional space to bring more liquidity and volume to the Exchange. All of this with a single minded goal, more business means more revenue, lower costs mean more profit, more profit means larger LP distributions and a higher price for TIOx - that is our goal.

With that we will leave you for now and get back to work and wish you all a happy and prosperous 2019.


Sincerely,

Bill Heyn

trade.io Announces Token Buyback Program
trade.io is pleased to announce a token buyback program that authorizes the Company to repurchase up to 2,500,000 TIOx on the open market or through privately negotiated transactions.

CEO Bill Heyn:

"The ongoing market downturn has, unfortunately, begun to create casualties among the world’s crypto exchanges. However, at trade.io we have been prudent with our resources; our balance sheet, cash flow and growth prospects remain strong. Our current position allows us to not only weather the storm but also invest where we see opportunity. We adamantly believe that trade.io’s long-term potential is not adequately reflected in the current market price of TIOx."

We feel this token repurchase program underscores the utmost confidence we have in the future of trade.io and further serves to align Company interests with those of our faithful TIOnauts.

The buyback program will be financed through free cash flow and any TIOx purchased as part of this program will be held as treasury tokens. The timing and price of any TIOx that are repurchased under this program will be determined solely by trade.io’s management at its own discretion based on its evaluation of market conditions and other factors. The buyback program may be suspended or discontinued at any time.

Message from the CEO
It has been a busy month fellow TIOnauts!

Things are moving so fast right now that it feels like I hardly have time to put pen to paper for this letter; good news though, this one's basically going to write itself. More to the point, it's going to be a bit of a challenge to fit everything we accomplished in February into one quick note.

So, to start off with, some pretty major improvements to the exchange have been implemented this month. Aside from the usual tweaks and turns that occur, we deployed our guest mode so that investors who are considering joining the vaunted ranks of the TIOnauts can get a preview of the exchange.

We also had our iOS app included in the Apple App Store. If you use an iPhone, make sure to look into it; I can vouch that it looks great. Not to leave anyone out, we are actively beta testing our Android app as well, feel free to check it out at Google Play.

In perhaps our biggest success of the month in attracting people from around the world to become TIOnauts and participate on the exchange, we launched our integrated solution for purchasing crypto with a credit or debit card. From the BALANCE tab in your exchange account, you will see a credit card icon next to the tokens that you can purchase with card payment. Just click on the icon and you’re on your way.

Along with all of the other improvements, we have been actively working to add new tokens to the exchange. This is something we decided to push at the beginning of the month and I had hoped to be able to report to you in the letter that we had listed four or five new tokens.

Instead, I am happy to report that we have added four new blockchains and, in total, nine new tokens, GRIN, NEO, EOS, HOT, AOA, LTO, EDR, LAMB and SOLVE. We have more coming and are planning to start a more organized process where anyone participating on the exchange can have some input on what we list.

Of course, not to forget, the most recent trading competition ends today - 5 BTC is up for grabs. Congratulations in advance to the best of our traders and the most fortunate of our TIOnauts in the lucky draw.

Looking ahead to March, our focus is on three major initiatives: adding fiat deposit options and trading to the exchange, expanding our regulatory footprint and beginning our marketing campaign for TIO Markets. Of course, exchange improvements and token additions will be ongoing along with ramping up marketing for trade.io.

Lastly, I want to touch again on the buyback program we announced earlier in the month. I know that there has been a bit of confusion as to how buybacks work and what they mean. I think that we have cleared up most of the technical questions in the last few weeks, so I want to focus on the meaning, the implication of a move like this on our part. However, at its core, it is pretty simple. Because we have been conscientious with our money, our balance sheet is strong and we have available funds. As we run the company it is up to us, every day, to determine how best to spend that money to create the most possible value for the TIOx. Everything from hiring people to giving away 5 BTC in a trading competition, we constantly strategize on how best we can use each and every penny to maximize value for our TIOnauts. In this case, we decided to invest in what we felt was a hugely undervalued asset - TIOx. Hopefully, you will all see that for the vote of confidence that it is - we are quite literally putting our money where our mouth is.

With all of that said, I am going back to work for you, for the company and for TIOx.

Sincerely,

Bill Heyn

CEO

2,500,000 TIOx Buyback Completed.
Additional 2,500,000 TIOx Buyback Authorized.

Dear TIOnauts,

trade.io is pleased to announce the completion of the 2,500,000 TIOx buyback initiated on February 14, 2019. The total amount of TIOx purchased both on the exchange and in private transactions amounted to 2,809,386.

As a result, the Circulating Supply displayed on CoinMarketCap has been updated to 85,733,750 TIOx from the previous figure of 88,543,136 TIOx accordingly.

In addition, the company has been authorized to purchase an additional 2,500,000 TIOx through open market or privately negotiated transactions, continuing the same methods used in the initial buyback.

Of the recently completed initial buyback, CEO Bill Heyn commented:

“We did exceptionally well in terms of accumulating TIOx over the course of the last few months, at competitive prices, while not impacting the orderly trading of the TIOx market.”

On the newly authorized buyback:

“Our outlook on the price of TIOx remains extremely bullish and our balance sheet remains strong, so we are thrilled to have the opportunity to increase our treasury holdings further.

With the imminent launch of fiat and TIOmarkets, along with the corresponding marketing campaigns, we plan to take this opportunity to buy additional TIOx.”


Similar to the initial buyback program, the additional 2,500,000 TIOX buyback program will be financed through free cash flow and any TIOx purchased as part of this program will be held as treasury tokens.

The timing and price of any TIOx that are repurchased under this program will be determined solely by trade.io's management, at its own discretion, based on its evaluation of market conditions and other factors.

The buyback program may be suspended or discontinued at any time.
