February has been another record-breaking month for the crypto world, with the market cap of Bitcoin alone reaching one trillion dollars (yeah, trillion), institutional money free-flowing into crypto, and the parabolic rise of BSC usage.
Here at the CertiK Foundation, we haven’t forgotten one of the core tenets of blockchain technology that underpins all this; security. This month has marked some milestones in our quest to achieve provable trust for all, including a plethora of partnerships, increased availability of CTK with additional exchange listings, and the APY for collateral provision in CertiKShield reaching a massive 17.26.%+!
Let’s kick it off and check out some of the achievements from the Foundation in February.
The fuel of the CertiK Chain and your key to an unparalleled level of security through the security suite of the CertiK ecosystem, including CertiKShield, is now available on both BitFinex and Tokocrypto
On February 19th CTK was listed on Bitfinex with a USD and a USDT pairing. Bitfinex is a top 10 crypto exchange headquartered in Hong Kong.
On February 24th CTK was listed on Tokocrypto with a BNB and BTC pairing. Tokocrypto is one of the largest crypto exchanges in Indonesia. Not only have they listed CTK, we’ve formed a partnership with the Binance backed exchange to cement CertiK as their preferred security auditor. We’re thrilled to expand the accessibility of CTK to millions of exchange users worldwide!
Two heads are better than one, as the old saying goes. We’re firm believers of that here at the CertiK Foundation which is why we’re constantly pushing out new partnerships and onboarding projects in the CertiK Chain ecosystem to build a more secure blockchain-based future.

How far will institutions go to acquire BTC? Bear or bull? BSC or Ethereum? It looks like the month of March is shaping up to answer some of these questions.
