Ivy Project Updates (August 18th)
Our bi-weekly update on happenings at Ivy
Welcome to another bi-weekly update from the Ivy team. Our email subscribers got this in an email last week. Sign up to make sure you don’t miss out!
The Ivy product team continues its strong pace of development of the MVP. The architecture for the system is now complete and it includes a significantly expanded platform. Not only does it do crypto payments per the vendor case illustrated in the white paper, but also a range of other uses, including asset purchases, peer-to-peer payments, services payments and more.
In addition, the Ivy platform will now accept as many as 10 cryptocurrencies to exchange for IVY, going well beyond the BTC and ETH acceptance that was initially envisioned for the MVP. Be on the lookout for more frequent announcements on the tech development and a detailed breakout of development milestones in the coming week from Mike, Bob and the team.
More Ivy AMA’s!
Each month we bring key members of the Ivy team to talk through the latest updates on the project. In early September we will be doing a tech focused Q&A / AMA session with Mike Beck & Bob Murray we encourage the community to tune in live to ask any questions you may have or submit a question via this form. You can watch last month’s Q&A around IvyPay here.
We continue a myriad of campaigns to grow our audience and drive awareness. As a result:
- Traffic to Ivykoin.com is up 140% month on month. (88% of traffic is new traffic)
- Email subscribers are up 15% month on month.
- Social engagement is up 22% across Facebook, Twitter & LinkedIn
Despite the current state of the market, it is critical we continue to drive awareness to the Ivy Project & appreciate the communities support in spreading the word.
