I am really pleased to reveal our presence, here are a few things that spring to mind after my two full days visiting Dan, Stan and the team...
The guys are real, humble, confident and decisive. It is clear that we can look forward to a genuine relationship with genuine people.
There is a pragmatism and competence that results in deliverables.
The respect, patience and thinking displayed, exceeded expectations.
We will begin to post on a regular basis and explain our plans but I will end by saying we took nearly a year to get to where we are, we are experienced and execution focused and we needed to believe first and foremost in a business model combined with suitable technology that would scale and dominate the remittance space.
We are intent on building a long term business and we have a clear view on how to make it happen, consequently choosing the tech and team was a big decision as the choice must support the business for years to come.
We are really comfortable that we can work with Dan, the team and the community to realise our goals and we will be here now and in the future to jointly fight the battles and build better software in order to further the potential of the Bitshares platform.
Take and care and we look forward to working with you all, this is the beginning of a very serious business.
