ZeroBounce Releases The Email List Decay Report for 2023

SANTA BARBARA, CA / ACCESSWIRE / February 28, 2023 / ZeroBounce announces the release of The Email List Decay Report for 2023, unveiling the latest statistics about the lifecycle of email databases. In the report, ZeroBounce shares data trends it gathered after validating more than six billion email addresses.

The ZeroBounce Email List Decay Report for 2023
ZeroBounce announces the release of The Email List Decay Report for 2023.

The findings are eye-opening for email marketers and companies relying on email for vital communications. At least 22.71% of the average email list degrades annually, the ZeroBounce report shows. At 20.19%, invalid email addresses made up most of the obsolete data processed by the email validation and deliverability company. Also prevalent were catch-all, disposable, abuse, spam trap, and toxic email addresses. In total, only 57.21% of all the emails ZeroBounce verified were valid and safe to use.

“Any database can acquire poor-quality email addresses which cause email deliverability to plummet,” says ZeroBounce founder and CEO Liviu Tanase. “Reaching the inbox is getting increasingly difficult, and using a healthy email database is a must. This report paints a clear picture of how fast email data degrades. The good news is that email marketers can stay on top of their email list health so they can be in the inbox and increase revenue.”

The Email List Decay Report for 2023 also reveals how likely users are to misspell their email addresses when filling out a sign-up or registration form. In just one year, ZeroBounce detected more than 10 million typos via its real-time email verification API. The software thus prevents potential bounces and continues to ensure companies build more reliable lead acquisition programs.

“Letting go of obsolete data makes an email list more responsive and more likely to convert. While so many companies focus on quantity, those who pay attention to data quality will see a boost in email ROI,” says ZeroBounce Chief Operating Officer Brian Minick.

To create the report, ZeroBounce analyzed the data it processed between January and December 2022. The benchmarks apply to companies of all sizes, across various industries, as ZeroBounce’s customers range from solo business owners to Fortune 500 companies.

Recently, ZeroBounce relaunched its platform, now offering 99% accurate email validation, increased security, and a more modern and intuitive user experience.

‫مؤتمر بلوكتشين لايف بدبي يؤكد على المستقبل الواعد للعملات الرقمية مع قدرة منصاتها على إثبات الاحتياطات الرقمية

  • مستجدات مع بعد عام 2022: وضعت منصات تداول العملات الرقمية معايير عالية لتعزيز أطر الشفافية تتمثل في القدرة على إثبات احتياطات الأصول الرقمية بنسبة 100%
  • تشكل منصات التداول اللامركزية جزءًا مهمًا من النظام البيئي الصحي من خلال دعم المتداولين على المدى المتوسط والطويل
  • باي بايت كأي منصة تداول مركزية تدعو لتعزيز التكامل مع تقنيات الويب 0 لدعم معاملات المستخدمين اليومية

دبي، الإمارات العربية المتحدة، 28 فبراير 2023: أكد بين زو الرئيس التنفيذي لمنصة تداول العملات الرقمية باي بيت، أن العملات الرقمية باتت على مشارف مستقبلها الواعد والحافل بالإمكانات الهائلة، لاسيما مع تحول مزايا الموثوقية والشفافية اليوم إلى حجر أساس لأي عمل ناجح في هذا المضمار. وأضاف زو بأن التكنولوجيا ستدعم جهود استعادة الثقة في العملات الرقمية، موضحاً أن منصات التداول المرخصة تمتلك جميع المقومات الضرورية للتفوق على المؤسسات المالية التقليدية على مستوى الشفافية.

وعلى هامش مشاركته في جلسة حوارية انعقدت ضمن فعاليات مؤتمر بلوكتشين لايف بدبي يوم الإثنين، تطرق زو إلى سبل الاستفادة من البيئة المفتوحة وقدرات المصادقة المباشرة المقدمة من التقنيات اللامركزية. وأشار زو إلى أن شبكات البلوكتشين باتت جزءاً من الحلول المتاحة في عالمنا اليوم، إذ يمكن للحلول المقوّمة بالعملات الرقمية دعم القطاع المالي في مواجهة الأشكال التقليدية والجديدة من مخاطر الاحتيال. وشدد زو على أن منصات تداول العملات الرقمية قادرة على تقديم إثباتات مباشرة على احتياطاتها من الأصول الرقمية، وهو ما يتخطى معايير الشفافية المألوفة لدى المؤسسات المالية التقليدية.

وتلتزم منصة باي بيت بإدارة أموال المستخدمين وفق أرقى أطر الشفافية والنزاهة، وهو ما يدفعها لتقديم إثباتات مباشرة وواضحة حول احتياطاتها من الأصول الرقمية عبر نموذج “شجرة ميركل” Merkle Tree المصممة لهدف محدد، وهو تقديم هياكل بيانات تتيح التحقق الآمن والفعال والمتسق من البيانات. ويمكن للمستخدمين استخدام رموز مخصصة لهم للتحقق من تسجيل أصولهم كالتزامات في محافظ باي بيت ضمن شبكتها وصولاً لأدق التفاصيل.

وقال زور: “بالنسبة لي، فإن مثل هذه التكنولوجيا المدعومة بالبلوكتشين تمثل حلاً حقيقياً للاتهامات الواردة باستمرار حول الأخطاء السائدة في مسائل التشفير والانتهاكات في القطاع المالي على نطاق أوسع. ويمكن لنموذج إثبات احتياطات الأصول الرقمية الجديد في القطاع طمأنة المستخدمين حيال أصول التداول المتاحة ومنحهم اطلاعاً شاملاً عليها، وهو ما يمهد الطريق لتحقيق التوازن بين ديناميكيات القوة التقليدية بين العملاء ومقدمي الخدمات المالية”.

وتطرق زو إلى الدور الهام لمنصات تداول العملات الرقمية مع سعي القطاع للخروج من تحديات عام 2022.  وفي الوقت الذي تُراعى فيه الاعتبارات الأمنية إلى أبعد الحدود، كشف زو عن الأسباب التي لا تزال تدفع المتداولين نحو منصات التداول المركزية، موضحاً أنها السيولة العميقة والبنية الرقمية المتينة ذات الدقة العالية.

ومشيراً إلى العملاء من المؤسسات والمتداولين الخبراء، قال زو: “لاتزال منصات التداول المركزية خيارهم المفضل إلى حد كبير نظراً لمزايا السيولة التي تتيحها. ولا يمكن بكل بساطة ممارسة نشاطات التداول بأحجام كبيرة عبر منصات لامركزية نظراً للقيود التي تواجهها بناها الرقمية”. واقترح زو أنه بإمكان الباحثين عن الاستثمار في العملات الرقمية على المديين المتوسط والطويل التفكير بشكل الجاد في المنصات اللامركزية.

واختتم زو: “يتمحور دورنا – ودور أي منصة تداول مركزية – حول الاستعداد على أكمل وجه للتبني الشامل والمرتقب لإمكانات البلوكتشين وتقنيات الويب 3.0. وأنا على ثقة بقدرات هذا القطاع الواعد، لأنه في غضون عامين، ستتجلى أسباب ذاك التبني الشامل، وسنرى الجميع يشرعون في استخدام العملات الرقمية”.

Crypto Sets Higher Standards for Proof of Reserves for Traditional Finance: Bybit CEO

  • The new norms after 2022: crypto exchanges have set a high bar in transparency with 100% verifiable proof of reserves
  • DEXs form an important part of a healthy ecosystem by supporting medium and long-term traders
  • Bybit has a calling as a CEX: delivering seamless integration into Web3 for everyday users

DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES – Media OutReach – 28 February 2023 – The future of the crypto industry is one step closer to its full potential, now trust and transparency is at the forefront, said Bybit CEO Ben Zhou. According to Zhou, technology will lead the way in restoring trust in crypto, and legitimate exchanges have what it takes to outperform traditional financial institutions in terms of transparency.

Speaking as part of a panel discussion at Blockchain Life 2023 in Dubai on Monday, Zhou proposed leveraging the open nature and real-time verification that decentralized technology offers. Blockchain is part of the solution, and crypto-native solutions can help armor the financial industry against traditional and new forms of fraud risk. He noted that crypto exchanges are able to offer real-time, verifiable proof of reserves, which is far and above the transparency traditionally offered by financial institutions.

Bybit is committed to managing user funds with the utmost transparency and integrity, which is why it has real-time proof of reserves with a purpose-built Merkle Tree. Users can use their Merkle Leaf code to check that their assets are recorded as liabilities in Bybit’s on-chain wallets down to the granular details.

For Zhou, this kind of technology — powered by blockchain — is the real solution to the constant news of malfeasance in the crypto and wider financial sector. The new industry norm of proof of reserves can offer users more peace of mind and visibility into exchanges’ assets, and this has tilted the conventional power dynamics between the customers and financial service providers, he said.

Zhou went on to talk about the role of crypto exchanges as the industry moves forward from a challenging 2022. While security considerations are a given, Zhou revealed why CEXs are still preferred by serious traders: deep liquidity and powerful infrastructure with millisecond precision.

Referring to institutional clients and professional traders, Zhou said that “centralized exchanges are pretty much their only choice simply because of the liquidity. And you simply can’t do high frequency trading on a decentralized exchange (DEX) due to infrastructure limitations.” However, Zhou suggested that those interested in medium-to-long term trades could consider DEXs as an option.

“Our role — and that of any centralized exchange — is to be ready for mass adoption and be the gateway to Web3 when it happens. So, I still believe in the industry,” Zhou added. “In two years, you will see signs of mass adoption. Your uncles, your aunties, your cousins will all start to use crypto,” he said.

Highlighting the impact of the growing FinTech sector in the region, Mohammad Alblooshi, Head of DIFC Innovation Hub and FinTech Hive, said: “The demand for FinTech services has grown significantly in the last few years, powered by digital technologies and innovation across sectors. In recent years, DIFC has successfully cemented its position as the finance and innovation hub in the MEASA region by offering the most comprehensive FinTech and venture capital environments.

He added: “I’m confident that the Dubai FinTech Summit, organised by DIFC, will soon become the premier platform allowing us to capture the industry’s attention and fulfil our vision of making Dubai a new home for the future of FinTech and finance.”

“Dubai’s work in the digital asset space, in the last few years, has been nothing short of remarkable. The government’s collaborative approach with the industry has drawn some of the most dynamic and innovative companies in the digital asset space to its shores, cementing its position as a leading FinTech hub and securing its economy for the future. Fireblocks is excited to participate in the Dubai FinTech Summit and explore some of the best FinTech solutions from around the world,” said Michael Shaulov, CEO, Fireblocks – a secure digital asset infrastructure company.

Trends like digitisation, open banking, embedded finance, financial inclusion, the democratisation of investing, the modernisation of the core banking stack, and the emergence of the creator and shared economies are driving disruption and economic progress, all over the world. I am excited to further explore these and other innovations we are seeing across the industry, as part of this exciting summit.”
