2key is the First Blockchain-Crypto Product Officially on the Zoom Marketplace!
Three weeks ago, we announced a big shift in focus to join the global effort in finding new solutions to the COVID-19 and global economic turbulence. We are not doctors (yet), and we have not yet found a vaccine, but we do know how to build decentralized products on the blockchain.
During these crazy times, with the virus in the wild, and the global economy going haywire, almost all of us had to change practices, switching to remote communication, mainly through video calls, we thought a lot about how we can make the lives of all of us a little easier.
Then it hit us! We knew what will help so many these days:
Self-managed Zoom event- Registration, Payment & Promotion Solution!
One of the greatest obstacles people need to overcome right now, with the imposed closures and social distancing, is the ability to maintain continuity, and most people are using remote solutions like video calls. We are all trying to adapt quickly to the new normal.
Many people have started offering their services on Zoom, from yoga teachers, psychologists, or mentors to crypto-webinars and conferences that have completely switch to Zoom. In fact, Zoom’s user base has skyrocketed from 10 million to 200 million (At 2key, we were not surprised by this exponential growth, as we have been using Zoom for over two years and know it is the best product on the market).
Looking at what was missing from Zoom, we noticed that, though Zoom was ideal for global teams, it was not tailored for professional services based in a physical setting, or to replace large events and conferences.
So we came up with an idea!
Zoom has by far the largest user base, and we, therefore, through the power of SmartLink technology, designed a custom solution to address Zoom’s new usage demand from millions of professionals now hosting sessions or events through the platform.
With no major changes to our existing smart contract, and a mere new product line extension from our core technology, we have built, in mere weeks, a SmartLink-based smart contract that allows Zoom’s users to:
- Launch ready-made paywalled sessions.
- Accept cryptocurrencies as payment.
- Grow with the 2key viral referral system of SmartLinks.
A SmartLink Powering a Paywall for any Zoom Session!
We named it SmartSession.
In less than 14 days we built an MVP for this product, connected with the Zoom API, and after few modifications based on Zoom’s feedback and requests, we are super proud to announce to you:
2key is now officially part of the

Its TL;DR is (If you are new to 2key network)-
A. First Time Use Only (~5 minutes):

B. Create and share a Zoom SmartSession link (~2–3 minutes):
- Give your SmartSession a title and some design.
- Set the session date and time, its duration, price in USD/ETH, and the number of participants.
- Set a 2key referral incentive as a percentage of the session price (if you want it to reach more people).
- Deploy the Smart Contract on Ethereum Blockchain (that will cost ~$1 in ETH)
- Publish the SmartLink with your Zoom participants and beyond!
- Track the link distribution and its results.

How does it look for participants?
- Participants click the link, see the session details, and pay the registration fee in ETH (soon also in more cryptocurrencies like DAI, USDT, and others). If they don’t have ETH, we support buying crypto with credit cards directly to their wallet. Visa or MasterCard accepts 17 different Fiat currencies in 180 countries.
- After the Tx approved, the participant receives the Zoom link of that specific session and approved to log in with the same email.
