Until now our software has been an idea that we have worked on around the clock, but now it is a reality. Line by line the code has taken shape to be a real desktop application. It is ready to be used, and more importantly, it works!
This represents an important step, and is something we want to share with all of you that have followed us throughout this long process. It has been many hours of work, many lines of code typed and corrected, many ideas exchanged, and a lot of trial and error… Basically a lot of effort that has without a doubt been worthwhile!
We are launching the Trial version. The Beta version is still some months away. We are aware that there is still a lot of work to be done, but Coinffeine enters the next stage: the time for our small but powerful protocol to meet the world has arrived. We want to celebrate this important milestone in style.
The last weeks have been full of good news. The international Bitcoin community has welcomed the announcement of Bankinter’s investment in Coinffeine with open arms, and the news got worldwide media attention. Our recent trip to Silicon Valley has, among many other events, helped us to further strengthen our business vision. With Coinffeine we have established a framework where both banks and Bitcoin users feel comfortable.
We think all these are good reasons for Coinffeine to organize a meetup. There we can talk face-to-face between bitcoiners about Coinffeine’s latest experiences, and more importantly, let the public know our product.
And of course we will do it Silicon Valley-style!
You are all invited, and we will provide details in a few days. But we can disclose some of them; we will give the first public demonstration on how our platform works, there will be pizzas and more surprises. Some of you can as well leave with our software installed on your computers.
Coinffeine is launching a phase of private testing. With this as an aim, we have been mining “monopoly money” for months. Testing our application will not cost you a penny, but it will require effort. We have a modest plan to reward the ones of you that puts in the greatest efforts. All your experiences using our application are valuable to us. We want to polish the code right down to the last detail, so don’t be shy.
