The merger details
SYS Labs’ merger with FortKnoxster will expand its Syscoin ecosystem into the cryptosecurity and decentralized social marketplace areas. SuperDapp, internally known as the “killer app”, will offer communication features common in social apps but will be designed for security-conscious crypto users.
The merger is in part based on “everything apps” that are common in many Asian markets, SYS Labs President Jagdeep Sidhu said in the press release. SuperDapp will “answer the need for many of these capabilities” when it is released in the second quarter.
