John Underwood Visit
« on: November 08, 2014, 12:43:27 AM »

Here's a face we think you'll be seeing a lot of in the coming year.  John Underwood, an accomplished Aussie entrepreneur currently based in the Philippines, spent a couple of days with us in Virginia.  He's got Big Plans to extend our technology into the remittance industry.  You are going to like it.

That is GREAT news. Remittances are about 10% of GDP in the Philippines.

Hi Everyone

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.

I really wish you the best of success with this. And I hope your model will be something that could be applied elsewhere as well, such as in Latin America. But even if you just hit the Philippines, that will be huge for all of us.

Are you also working on some on/off-ramps for BitUSD in the Philippines? Hopefully, the ones being developed by others will work anywhere in the world. But I can't help thinking that BitUSD would be a lot more popular for remittances if there were an economy for it on both sides of the pond. No doubt there are plenty of other moving pieces that need to be put into place as well.

Great news! Since BitPTS is not really needed anymore, maybe we can replace it with BitPHP?
