You heard that right. We officially have over 1,000 Yenizens in the Yeniverse! The last time I wrote on hitting a milestone was in July when we became larger than Vatican City. At that time, we had 810 Community Members, which means we have grown 25% in a month (wow!). I absolutely love seeing fresh faces on the platform, but what I love even more is seeing the warm welcome they receive from our community.
The prevailing (and most popular) wisdom in technology circles when building software is that the early-team should make every concerted effort to launch their
MVP as soon as possible, full-stop.
To start, a confession: I was wrong, I’m sorry, and I hope you can forgive me as I really, really believed that this was going to be our
final landing page before we go public.
But, it was not to be, and here’s why…
For starters, hello and welcome 👋🏻 to all the new
#yenizens that have joined us recently! We cannot thank you enough for believing in us and our vision to build a technology platform that is worthy of the cryptocurrency and decentralized communities that it serves!
As you already know, we have a long way to go before our software is even close to being finished so your early support means the world to us and together well build something that we can all be very proud of!
FUD as an abbreviation for “fear, uncertainty, and doubt.” The entry in Wikipedia notes it as a “strategy to influence perception by disseminating negative and dubious or false information and a manifestation of the appeal to fear.”
If you’re in the crypto space for any amount of time, you’ll no doubt have come across some of this in some shape or form.
This is a special community spotlight because we are celebrating a milestone achievement on YEN. Waqar (icoNeo on YEN) is the first Yenizen to reach $1,000,000 in trades on YEN! At this rate, he may even hit $10,000,000 soon (#whale). I sat down with Waqar earlier this week to learn more about his story. Here is what he had to say…
We now have 659 Yenizens in the Yeniverse (as I am writing this blog post), which means our community has grown more than 50% since May 1st! I have only been working on this project for two months, and yet, it feels like we have already grown so much since I have started and I couldn’t be more excited for the future.
Brand development can be a nightmare for companies, especially startups. Where do you start? How do you know your brand identity is good? Does our brand properly reflect who we are as a company? These questions can cause headaches for anyone and they certainly have for us at YEN.
