Dock.io, which focuses on credentials to preserve information, had an outstanding 2021. The firm in 2021 was able to achieve most of its planned goals, providing users with top-notch offerings and experiences. Therefore, in this article, we will give you a summary of how are things going for this important protocol.
Dock Network released several features to boost adoption in the previous year before its mainnet launch in 2021. The platform, via an official blog post, noted that Dock Network in 2021 carried out several upgrades in its network.
Dock Network Updates
In the first quarter of 2021, Dock focused on the migration of the existing ERC20 token for its mainnet token. This meant every holder of the ERC20 $DOCK tokens had to migrate their tokens before March 31st, 2021. Notably, 97.2% of the tokens according to Dock were migrated from the Ethereum network to Dock’s Network.

Also, in this period of time, Dock Network rolled out a public delegation feature which was an upgrade to its existing features. The new upgrade eliminated the need for the credential holders to present the “proof of delegation” mechanism during the verification process.
Moreover, it allowed credential verifiers to search for delegation details and enabled delegators to publicly attest to delegations. Furthermore, Dock tapped Subscan to allow token holders to view certain information which includes:
- Important statistics of the network
- Details of the blocks
- Events, extrinsic, and transfers on the chain, among others.
In addition to a successful token migration, Dock secured major collaboration for the growth of the network.
For example, Dock Network, in Q2 of last year, partnered with Xertify, a digital credentialing platform. The partnership focused on bringing decentralized credentialing solutions. As a result of the integration, Xertify was able to utilize Dock’s blockchain infrastructure and tools to issue W3C-compliant credentials.
