GetGems Developer Update # 18 — November 8, 2015
“Gems is the reward and the gamification token to help grow the network and in the future, for the attention economy.”
Hello again everyone,
It has been some time since our last official blog update. We are on a variety of channels such as facebook, twitter, bitcointalk, telegram chat groups, and more, where we answer all your questions about the developments being made by the GetGems team. Here in this blog, we summarize this information and introduce news in more detail.
Airdrop Testing on iOS and Android
We have begun testing the Daily AirDrop functions for Android and iOS. We are starting with a smaller total daily airdrop amount to test the algorithm and distribution. The aim of the airdrop is to grow the activity of the GetGems network.
Currently to be eligible you need to be:
- Invite new users
- New users need to be active
- Human :) — more details in previous blog: http://bit.ly/1GNbuzC
The Attention Economy (“AE”) is chicken-and-egg problem in the sense that it will become attractive to advertisers when GetGems has a lot of users. We are working hard on a few directions to speed-up adoption.
The organic adoption of GetGems is growing at approximately 27% per month and we anticipate that will increase substantially with the AirDrop incentive. Please keep up the great work everyone!
AirDrop is now live on iOS and Android apps.
DiceGame is a fun game now featured on GetGems. Gems are the gaming and incentive token.
Android Only Updates
The GetGems Android app has been updated with three tabs instead of 4 creating a more intuitive interface and organizing the screen into a cleaner look. We also moved the Sticker Shop to the Sticker keyboard inside of chat.
GetGems in Top 11 of 43North with introduction of PayKey
We were very pleased to have made the top 11 list out of over 11,000 applicants to the prestigious 43North in Buffalo and made this presentation for the finals on October 29th.
PayKey and what it means for GetGems
At GetGems, we have developed a technology that enables payments within any existing social network.
What is PayKey?
The vision of GetGems has always been to make payments global, secure and simple.
PayKey was created by GetGems and is a patented system that enables payments to be made within social networks’ chats including Facebook’s Messenger, WhatsApp, SnapChat, Twitter etc. Leveraging these existing networks creates a simple and intuitive payment experience. PayKey enables the ability to transfer cryptocurrency (gems/bitcoin) and fiat money (USD, CNY, etc) within any social network.
It’s a one payment solution that fits all.
Today friends are on multiple platforms, and everybody is already used to multiple keyboards, emojis keyboard, swiftkey etc. Our solution, PayKey, empowers the user giving them the ability to pay within any social network without the need of any permission from the social network.
If there is one application that you use more than any other it is your keyboard which sits on the most lucrative “real estate” on your phone. Instead of limiting GetGems to the telegram social network, we aim to be completely global and leverage the largest social messengers for money transfer.
GetGems for the Web — first look
We are very excited to be creating the GetGems Desktop Client and anticipating its release before the end of November.
