Community Update — July 27, 2018

We’re looking for beta testers for Tabby Pay. 💻

If you’ve been following along over the last few weeks, you would know that we’ve been hard at work on three major updates to Tabby Pay.

  1. Adding the ability to pay fees in CAT
  2. Adding the ability to send/receive any ERC20 token
  3. Overhauling the UX to be more intuitive and easier to use

Today we’re happy to announce that all of the major functional and design updates are complete and we’re now ready to initiate beta testing. 🎉

New to BlockCAT? Tabby Pay is a smart contract that’s built to prevent user error. If you send tokens to the wrong wallet, you can cancel the payment and your tokens will be returned to you. Learn more here.

Seeking Beta Testers

We’re currently seeking members of our community to participate in user-testing sessions with our team.

We’re looking for people who own multiple tokens, who are proficient in sending/receiving tokens (eg. by using MetaMask or MEW) and who have multiple wallets types (eg. Ledger and MetaMask).

If you, or someone you know, is interested in beta testing the new, unreleased version of Tabby Pay… please sign up using this form:

Please note: We’re only accepting a small number of individuals for testing. If you are chosen, we will follow up with you early next week to schedule a virtual meeting with a member from our team. 👍
