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.


Back Live

Hi guys good to be back, my apologies for my silence but I promise you this duck, whilst silent, has been paddling 24/7 beneath the surface.

In summary, after considerable due diligence we came to believe that the dynamics of the market were so restrictive that unless we focused on the root cause we could neither speak nor execute with conviction.

As a consequence we went back to first principles and worked through the issues as we saw them and now after many months of back and forth on how and why, we are getting ready to reveal our plans to the community.

We have a few conversations to go over the next few days but I am pleased to say that we are close to becoming more vocal...

Take care and maybe grab a seat, life is too short to bet on a hope

Many thanks, we're of the opinion Bitcoin has a bunch problems as a remittance currency and that these efforts help prepare the market for change. We shall see, we live in exciting times :-)

FYI, Coindesk has an article about Bitcoin remittances in the Philippines. Coins.ph has enabled this.

Did some digging.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=igeUz4cjB5w seems like the most honest reviews come from kids.  If this is the case, the verdict is not looking good :P

Reflects my view but Stan had mentioned it so often we had to respect his wishes. :-)

Lol... he does tend to be pretty "convincing".

This just in from the other side of the planet.

John Underwood's Latest Addition to our Trophy Shelf


Buying bread from a man in Brussels
He was six-foot-four and full of muscles
I said, "Do you speak-a my language?"
He just smiled and gave me a Vegemite sandwich
And he said

I come from a land down under
Where beer does flow and men chunder
Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder?
You better run, you better take cover
Yeah


You are now cultured.

Proud to be a part of this special place  :D

Chris Duanes proof rounds in the picture. Nice choices.

Chris and Heidi did a nice job upgrading the original 1776 version of the State Seal of Virginia currently affixed to the corporate documents of Invictus Innovations Incorporated!

In reality we are wolves in sheeps clothes when it comes to banks.

The haters think we are the banks.  Us and Ripple. :P

That's wonderful. Thank you for updating our community.

For all ye Libertarians who think we'll kill all the banks, we still need a few of them!  ;)

We will eventually buy the ones we want to keep.  :)

In reality we are wolves in sheeps clothes when it comes to banks.

We do need them for a time but if mass adoption becomes a reality they will go the way of the dinosaur

Can you give us some idea about how you plan to gain adoption in the phills?

Will you get in touch with the money changers themselves and ask them to add bitUSD to their service giving people a place to go to exchange bitUSD-Pesos-USD? Or are you trying to work with a group of local businesses in a specific town to allow them to accept bitUSD directly for goods and services?

I understand the need for some secrecy but give us some teaser's, help us create some excitement around your service.

We have relations with a receiving bank where they will be the official offramp and partner of Remitabit.
 

Very exciting the market their is just perfect for bitUSD for some many reasons. I think If you can pull a off ramp partnership off (for a reasonable fee) this will be huge for us and Remitabit.

Please feel free to disclose any possible fee structures for the service when ever you feel comfortable  :)
