Zoom Expands Developer Platform with Launch of Zoom Apps SDK

Zoom Apps SDK enables developers to build new applications that transform the meeting experience

SAN JOSE, Calif., June 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Today, Zoom Video Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZM) announced the general availability of the Zoom Apps SDK, which provides developers with the resources and support infrastructure needed to build Zoom Apps within the Zoom client. By building on the Zoom Apps SDK, developers can reach Zoom customers, and users can discover and add new apps within the same client they use every day. Over 100 Zoom Apps have been published by developer partners to enrich meeting experiences ranging from meeting productivity, team collaboration, and social networking to gaming.

“To meet customer expectations, organizations continue to look for ways to evolve their businesses and scale workflows, which leads to an increased need for developers to have access to develop innovative app capabilities and features,” said Brendan Ittelson, Chief Technology Officer at Zoom. “With the launch of the Zoom Apps SDK, the Zoom Developer Platform continues to expand and offer developers new ways to incorporate video communications and collaboration into their creations, transforming business workflows forever.”

“The ability to leverage APIs to enable application integration and innovation is a critical digital transformation need,” says Irwin Lazar, President and Principal Analyst at Metrigy. “More than 84% of IT professionals in our research say that API availability is important for employee and customer engagement use cases. General availability of the Zoom Apps SDK will make it easier, and faster, for developers to deliver business benefits through a variety of ways.”

Zoom Apps SDK broadens developer capabilities by:

  • Increasing the reach of new applications by tapping into Zoom’s global and diverse audience, listing apps on the Zoom App Marketplace and in the Zoom client where apps can be installed even during a Zoom Meeting
  • Extending new apps to create collaborative experiences across Zoom Meetings
  • Creating engaging experiences for customers both within and outside of Zoom Meetings

Zoom Apps SDK is a JavaScript SDK that provides access to client features such as setting the Virtual Background while also providing the app context for the interaction. Fundamentally, it uses a method to get the meeting context, with identifiers for the user and meeting. These identifiers can be used with a comprehensive set of API endpoints from the Zoom Developer Platform, including REST APIs and Webhooks to enrich the app experience.

With the Zoom Apps SDK, companies are able to create engaging experiences within Zoom Meetings, and in the Zoom desktop window for asynchronous collaboration.

“In this new era of hybrid work, businesses are using more apps than ever to collaborate and get work done from anywhere,” said Ketan Kittur, Vice President, Product Management at Box. “We know that customers want all of their favorite apps to work securely and seamlessly together. With the Zoom Apps SDK, we created the Box app for Zoom which empowers our thousands of joint customers to work frictionlessly across our two platforms.”

Getting Started with Zoom Apps SDK
Building with Zoom Apps SDK is simple. Here’s how to get started:

  1. Build the app: Utilize the Zoom Apps SDK to develop and customize an app.
  2. Complete the submission checklist: Before submitting an app for review, ensure all items are completed in the Submission Requirements. The checklist covers marketing, privacy, legal, support, and technical information.
  3. Submit the app for review: All apps submitted for publication undergo a thorough review, including functional and usability testing, and security and compliance review.
  4. Publish on App Marketplace: Once published, the app will be available to all users through an embeddable button.

Following 3AC insolvency crisis, OKX launches Custody Trading Sub-Account to “solve trust issue”

  • OKX’s newest account mode delivers the investor control, transparency, and risk management that is needed to minimize institutional investor losses in a volatile market environment.
  • The Custody Trading Sub-Account offering involves OKX stepping in to make sure an investor’s assigned money manager is fulfilling their fiduciary duties.

VICTORIA, Seychelles, June 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — OKX, the world-leading cryptocurrency platform, today announced the launch of its Custody Trading Sub-Account product for customers looking to benefit from trading team strategies and institutional and high-net-worth investors.

Custody Trading Sub-Account involves OKX acting as a trusted third party between the investor and their money manager or trading team. The product mitigates the risks investors face by granting them greater control over their investments and delivering multi-layered risk management. It also provides greater transparency by enabling investors to monitor leverage and margin usage in real-time and access and share OKX-verified trading records.

Haider Rafique, Global Chief Marketing Officer, OKX, said: “The recent conspicuous near-insolvencies have taught us that many investors who entrust their funds to market makers or hedge funds don’t have control, or even visibility, over how their money manager is trading. These firms provide questionable risk management and transparency and, in some cases, this has even allegedly led to investor funds being used to answer margin calls. We are launching OKX Custody Trading Sub-Account to provide much-needed control and transparency and help everyone in the industry.”

When it comes to control, investors are able to configure a range of account trading access rights, while third parties and trading teams are not permitted to move investor funds directly. Comprehensive risk management protocols additionally prevent assets from being collateralized twice and enable investors to access features such as warning level, trade-freeze level, and kill switch. Finally, smart contract auditing from OKX means that due diligence is undertaken by a trusted third party.

Lennix Lai, Financial Markets Director, OKX, said: “After lessons were learned during the recent debacle involving some mismanaged firms, we believe it’s fundamentally important that the crypto industry has an independent, trusted third party to play the role of custodian for these types of investments. This custodian would provide both clearing and appropriate risk management. We need to find a way to segregate clients’ tokens from managers’ in-house wallets while making sure the managers fulfil their fiduciary duties to both their clients and the relevant communities. We also need to ensure that there is transparency for investors and communities as far as how their funds are being staked, traded, or utilized as collateral.”

OKX Custody Trading Sub-Account allows the money manager or trading team to access a broad range of products in both the CeFi and DeFi spaces in order to fulfil their obligations to investors. During the custody period, the trading team is also equipped to protect their proprietary strategic trading and position information.

With this launch, OKX builds on the risk management record that saw it protect more than 500 million UST in user funds prior to May’s LUNA/UST crash. OKX will continue to incorporate comprehensive risk management strategies to ensure users can invest both safely and responsibly.

Bybit Launchpad 2.0 to Host OpenBlox (OBX) IEO

163275-Bybit.jpgROAD TOWN, United British Virgin Islands – Media OutReach – 21 June 2022 – Bybit, one of the world’s fastest growing crypto exchanges, will list the inaugural BloxVerse platform token OBX on Bybit Launchpad 2.0.

OpenBlox is an EVM-based NFT gaming and web3 platform focusing on play-and-earn / move-and-earn and IP branding.

Bybit will host the initial exchange offering for OBX, which will be available on the Bybit Launchpad 2.0, a freshly revamped platform for groundbreaking blockchain projects, with the full spot listing scheduled for June 30.

Bybit users can commit BIT to subscribe to token allocations, or participate in Launchpad 2.0’s new lottery model where users stake a nominal amount of Tether (USDT) for the chance to win allocations of new tokens. Users can also buy the best performing tokens from previous listings via the Launchpad.

Since its inception in 2021, OpenBlox has attracted investment from renowned investors such as Yusaku Maezawa, who made his first web3 investment with the project, as well as a devoted community following its initial launch. RunBlox, a lifestyle app and OpenBlox’s first web3 venture that has gained traction while still in beta testing, is the most recent addition to the blockchain gaming ecosystem. 

The OBX listing is a continuation of OpenBlox’s success. In 2022, OpenBlox closed a $4 million seed and private round, launched RunBlox, and saw massive growth in Japan and Korea as the Asia-Pacific region became the primary cohort of OpenBlox users.

The go-to platform for promising crypto projects, Bybit Launchpad 2.0 gives users early access to some of the most sought after tokens in the space. OBX is the latest addition to Bybit Launchpad 2.0’s future forward ecosystem.
