I know I am not the best in communication with the community. (To express it positively… I have to work a lot on this I know) But I want to let you know that we have made a lot of progress in the past months. And we still work a lot to improve the website and adding new features. The website is not dead!!! I have to update you all more often.
We have now over 150.000 User
We completely rewrote the payout engine
Payouts go out more stable without or with small minor bugs.
Price of BRO was over 1 USD (when Bitcoin reached his highest price)
Over 200 BRO Masternodes (peak)
21 Million streamed hours
Dice Website online (we have to move it to another server soon)
Over 1000 Users in our Telegram Groups
A lot of people helping new users
A great team of Moderators helps out every day
There are 3 new things we are focusing at the moment:
Alexa App / Skill
A new Alexa Skill is created and users will be able to stream Bitradio (your favorite Station) with Alexa.
Just by saying: Alexa start Bitradio. This Skill should be ready in Q1 2018. I will keep you updated when we are ready with this. Tests looking great and I think we will have it done on 19.03.2018. The first Birthday of Bitrad.io
There will not be a reward in the beginning because this is not possible with Alexa at the moment. Maybe later in a second Version on the Alexa skill. (there is no way we can check if a user is online or not at the moment. So we cant pay rewards)
We also work on this app and have a working alpha. Searching and playing Radio is possible and earning activity points will work also. Now we have to add other functions and test everything. We are looking forward to releasing it in Q2 2018.
A first Verion of the app can be viewed here. This is not the final Version. We have to add more features and rework the design.
Some users ask if there will be an App for Andriod and IPAD also. Answer: Yes. We don't have a developer for this app yet, but this will be one of our next steps to get also an Android app. Can't say exactly when.
Bitstre.am (we purchased the domain and own it now)
Bitstream will be a Website where you can earn BRO while watching your favorite Twitch.tv stream. You can watch every channel and earn activity Points. The first Version of it will be simple. You type in your favorite Streamer or Channel and are able to watch it and earn activity points. Later we will implement the API and you can use all functions from twitch.
Things we also work on:
New ad Network.
We are in talks with BuySellads to sell our ads on their platform. Should be ready in Q1-Q2 2018
As you know our Masternodes don’t run 24/7 and we will fix this in February. At the moment all Masternodes earn 80 BRO per Month. Much more than normal nodes which are not hosted by us because we compensate all users.
Users / Shareholders also don’t pay a fee at the moment. We fix this and add new nodes to the network.
From the 1. March all Nodes will be up and running and get the rewards earned. We also will reduce the payouts for 6 USD (Hosting Fee from March) We will additinola 16 Masternodes when we see there is demand for new Masternode shares in March.
Test of this feature was working good. Some users bought Premium in our Christmas special. Some users were able to buy it until the year 2050. We fixed this bug and will give all users which have bought it for the „test price“ until the end of March 2018. We will have a look at the price. I think we will make 99 USD cents per Month. You can only pay it in BRO.
Not sure if this will be the final Price.
Roadmap / Ideas
We have some Ideas. Not sure if and when we implement this. I will write a detailed info and Roadmap for this.
We registered this domain and want to implement a script that allows users to vote for their favorite radio station. On Bitradio.one this station gets a time slot and users can stream this station. Also, stations can „buy“ a time slot with BRO to get hosted on this website or station.
We registered this domain and want to implement a script that allows users to vote for their favorite Twitch stream. As a streamer, you get money from twitch.tv for adding content. As a streamer, you want to get as many people as possible to watch your stream. We will have a lot of users and streamers can buy a time slot on this website. WIN WIN for everyone.
Streamer and Users.
This are only some ideas. Don’t know if there is a market for it or not. But we like esports, streaming, and Twitch and want to combine it with crypto.
Checking and updating not working radio stations
We have a lot of Radio stations which are not working at the moment. We will provide a function on the user control panel to edit these stream URLs. Users will get a reward in activity points for changing this stream URL of the radio stations. After that, we will have a lot more working radio stations
Adding new radio stations
We also will create a form for users to add new radio stations to the website. We have some station request here in the Forum. We try to add them this quarter to our database and will also create a form where users can add stations by themselves.
We have to move the Dice website to our new server.
I do not know when we sell the next 5.000.000 Coins. Next ICO Date. On 19.03.2018 Bitrad.io will be online one year. What do you think about the idea: 1 Year Birtradio 1 Million Coins sold on 1 Day? This is a thing I like a lot but I am not sure what you think about it?
-> Main goal is to release the IOS App an Alexa App. After that, we will make another ICO.
Form now: I will make every month an update to keep you all informed.
Thanks to all of you for your support. My special thanks going to the admins of the Telegram group & Users on Bitcointalk helping us. Without you, it would not be possible to run it.
Thanks a lot
