We've accomplished an incredible amount in the past six months. We've made a choice on the final six Chips in JellyChip, we've created feeds for each of those Chips, we have agreed on our long-term charity gifts, we've created a beautiful survey platform, and we've fixed thousands of bugs in JellyChip. All in the name of making JellyChip the best social network in the world. We've also become focused in our ability to change lives.
I have also made the move to Singapore from Melbourne to pursue the market of south-east Asia for JellyChip and all systems are go. We will be based in Singapore, our 12 programmers are in Russia, and our sponsors are in Switzerland. I've come from Australia and we are ready to change the entire world with you.
There's one more thing - we have finally completed the last piece of the JellyChip puzzle. The Lifeline Chip! Now the Lifeline Chip has been six months in the making, can you believe it. That little circle sitting in the middle of JellyChip, six months. But it's true - we've been building it steadily but it has taken time. We liken the Lifeline Chip as the roof of the building, the final component that keeps everything we've created together.
We've had a placeholder for the time being. For the past two years on JellyChip users have changed lives through the JellyChip Store and that has been great. Users would have to save up 1,000 to 4,000 points and spend those points on charity gifts individually, their Profile would level accordingly and they would then have to save up for their next gift.
The JellyChip Store was wonderful but it was missing the social element we always wanted. Yes we had social features which supported the giving, including Friends, Chat, and Snaps, but nothing that brought people together on the scale we imagined. We didn't want to go down the route of other social networks that included news feeds as their primary method for connecting users - we wanted to explore new ways of community engagement. News feeds exist across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Linkedin - wonderful. But we wanted to create an experience where the user actually felt connected to the entire social network and a space where they could make an impact that people saw.
For the rest of JellyChip to see your impact is very important to us. That is really, really cool.
So we've done just this. We've secured 14 gifts with the charity Lasallian Foundation, which we will explain further in another blog post, but they are amazing. These gifts will impact schools across Asia and will benefit communities in need and communities that can use those gifts most effectively. These gifts will last for several years on JellyChip now, which provides us stability and the users continuity as they look to level each gift. We apologise for changing our charity gift range twice over the duration of JellyChip's little life - but we think we have finally got it right. Small charity, maximum impact. We look forward to increasing the number of gifts with Lasallian in the months ahead. We also look forward to showing you your impact too.
We have also created the right platform for users to join together to make a difference together - the Lifeline Chip. This has not been easy, there are still several bugs to fix, but we now have the crown jewel of the JellyChip experience.
Simply earn 20 points on JellyChip and you can donate your points towards the current gift. Gifts will reset ever 30 minutes to a new gift. Completed gifts will reset instantly to a new gift. Your impact gets seen by everyone on JellyChip and you can compete with the world for number one spot on the Lifeline leaderboard. If the gift doesn't get bought, and is unsuccessful, your points will be refunded to you no questions asked!
In another blog post we will explain how to use the Lifeline Chip but its now live to explore and play! We love bringing the JellyChip community together and it's almost time to market our site to the world. Let's just get these fixes in over the next couple of days and then open up JellyChip to the globe!
We're excited to be on this adventure with you and truly believe we have the potential to change the world. Yes, we say that a lot but it's so true. Thanks for allowing us this opportunity to invite you on the journey of a lifetime and we're thrilled to introduce the Lifeline Chip to you. Let's change lives, change the world and make history in the process on jellychip.com.
