After over one year of development and testing, we are excited to finally announce the official launch date to decentralize development of Bitcoin-sCrypt through block-chain voting: September 14, 2015.
We chose a date after the summer and labor day holidays to maximize marketing exposure.
This pre-launch announcement is directed to the Bitcoin-sCrypt community that has been supporting this effort to give them a heads up before the official launch announcement targeting the wider cryptocoin community is released in the coming weeks.
Once we make the official launch announcement, we will coordinate with community members to help spread the word.
Finally, we wanted to thank everyone for their support, ideas and for helping alpha-test the client.
Unlike other developers that make promises about a product so they can collect funds before the product is released or even developed (i.e., vaporware), we did the reverse by using our own resources to develop the product to bring to market without asking for funding based on promises. It may have taken us longer to finish, but we whole-heartedly believe that this was the right way to do things.
Ultimately, time will tell us if our efforts and this strategy were worth it.
Again, be on the lookout for the official launch announcement in the coming weeks through multiple marketing channels (e.g., forums, social media, news sites, exchanges, etc…).
