Hey everyone, we've been away from our blog for a short while as we work like diligent developers to update JellyChip with features that make the platform better.
This year is a big year for us - the JellyChip app was launched in September 2016 and we've achieved a huge amount in the space of 4 months. JellyCitizens have bought more than 3,000 charity gifts and we've spent hundreds of dollars on paying our charities to distribute these gifts. The great news is our platform works. JellyChip works. Yet, the JellyChip Team hungers for more. We want to change more lives and we want to expand the JellyChip user base across the world.
Our focus is very simple for this year: Speed and Stability. We have sacrificed both these things in the pursuit of a mega massive platform last year and that was fine. However this year must be about consolidating our platform and making JellyChip the fastest and most stable app for our users. The worst thing is when we receive bug reports, I know all platforms do. Nothing is perfect. But some of our bugs have been rather significant over the past couple of months - honestly speaking.
This year is about ironing out those bugs and providing the best experience for you. We are searching for any charity that wants to be part of JellyChip (legit charities need only apply) and we'll be searching for survey partners to utilise our survey platform, which pays for the charity gifts on JellyChip. Speaking of which, our survey platform is almost complete and it's incredible. No other platform on the internet offers companies access to market research at the low cost we do - which is hugely motivating moving forward. We'll be marketing our survey platform heavily in the weeks and months to come.
Four big things we added late last year:
Next up are a series of small improvements to make the JellyChip experience faster and more meaningful. We'll detail these soon.
In the meantime happy 2017 and let's chase our dreams. We have said for almost 3 years now that we want to be the best and most impactful social network on the planet. We're going to make that happen, and some more. Even as I write this blog post JellyCitizens have earned another 3 charity gifts, saving 100 chickens, planting a tree in the Amazon rainforest and saving 10 pine trees in the American Rockies. What an amazing start to an incredible year - we're changing the world.
