Just wanted to share some important news… the short of it is that we’ll be closing up CryptoYum.com on December 31st.
For those that have been around for a while, you already know that CryptoYum was one of many lightweight apps that we built to better understand the existing market and community needs. And, it was also a huge part of our iterative discovery of what we now all know as YEN!
Consequently, it’s served it’s purpose and we’ll be shutting it down and rebooting some of the core features that made it work in YEN (exact time-table is still yet-to-be-determined…).
Thanks for everyone who provided a ton of great feedback and who helped spur us on to keep building! You’re a big part of our collective discovery process and we’re so grateful for your help!
And, this will help us, as a team, to focus more exclusively on building a worldclass product with YEN! Focus is everything. EVERYTHING!
If you have any questions, feel free to drop them here! As always, our lines of communication are open.
Today we made the easy decision to renew the CryptoYum.com domain name for a whopping $14.90 USD. This was clearly an easy decision because it’s already created so much value for us and for our community.
What isn’t covered in the cost is, of course, the time of development, branding and design, and other such infrastructural costs.
But, that’s neither here nor there.
Peter and I took a moment today to reflect on how far we’ve come in just a year’s time and appreciate how much things have changed… and how great our community is.
And that’s what this is really about: CryptoYum was the first application that we considered building and really set in motion the idea that we could build products for a community that they would use and love.
CryptoYum helped us dream a little bit bigger about our collective future… and we’re still here.
Thank you all for letting us build stuff for you. Onwards and upwards!
Just a quick note that we’re finally ready for folks to start testing CryptoYum! We’ll be sending out more details to our Cryptonauts+ in just a bit so that you can have access to the BETA and then start providing feedback in the #CryptoYum board on The Pub.
We’re so grateful for your patience as we build out these products and, as we’ve mentioned before… it always takes longer than you originally plan or hope.
But, for those who have been with us for a while… you can now say that you’ve directly supported the birth and creation of another Cryptonation software project!
We are only showcasing a few coins / projects for right now. That’s by design! If things look and appear stable, then, we’ll slowly add more projects based on community feedback.
We are looking for volunteer help to manage and update this site as well as be a bigger part of the curation process. We intentionally built the system in WordPress so that we could get non-technical folks to help build it out. We’ll have more info on this opportunity later…
Our hope is to test it for a week or so and then release it!
Oh, and one more thing… we’d love to give you more public credit as part of the “founding team” of CryptoYum… we’re going to have a public page on The Pub sharing that. If you want to be included in that post, let us know in the comments below.
As Peter and I work through the native iOS issues (which are many) we’re still trying to hit our own internal deadlines of providing this new service to you as quick as we can.
So, for those who are our Beta Testers (Cryptonauts+) you should be able to see a preview of the site in a few days… maybe this weekend.
I’ll provide more testing notes for you to walk through when we’re ready, but, I’m stoked to get this new product out into your hands! It’s what powers a lot of what our news cycle is on Decentralized TV and we want you to have direct access to the same source material that we do.
