    Hello everyone,


    a small update for the month of Oktober for you.


    1) New staking shares

    Today we added 15 new staking nodes. A lot of users want to buy more shares so we added 15 today. Within the next week, we will add another 50 staking nodes. So buy some shares and get more BRO even if you don't have your wallet open to stake. We do the staking for you.


    You can buy these shares here:

    https://bitrad.io/masternode/buy/


    We will have 100 Staking Nodes with 100.000 Shares until the end of November


    2) New masternode Shares

    In November we will also add new Masternodes and new Masternode Shares to the website. We host at the moment 42 Masternodes. By the end of the year, there will be 100 shared Masternodes on the Website.


    You can buy these shares here:

    https://bitrad.io/masternode/buy/

    (not added yet)


    In sum we will have 100.000 Masternode shares and 100.000 Staking Node shares by the end of the year.


    3) iOS Update

    Since Apple updated iOS to Version 13.x users don't get activity points because Apple changed something in the Code. We have already a fix for this issue. We can not upload the new version with the fix, because we work on 2 new features for the App and we have to delete everything because the new features are not ready. We work a lot to get these two new features done as quick as possible.


    4) Content System

    I want to thank everyone who is helping us creating new Content, editing and adding stations to the website. With your help, we will reach over 1.500 changes in the Database for the month of Oktober. This is GREAT. Very good. Keep on the good work.


    If you not have added radio stations and want to help... Here are some information for you. You will also get BRO for your work. THANKS SO MUCH.

    Bitrad.io - Update for September 2019 - Content System -



    Have a great Halloween. See you in November for the next Update.


    Uwe

    Hello everyone,


    there was no update in the past month, but we are still here and are here to stay. We had some things we had to work on. Some legal stuff and other things had to be done fist.

    With this post, I want to let you know what our next steps and plans are.


    Today we will start with the content System. Every user can add, edit and remove radiostations.

    In the past, some users and admins edited radio stations and as a result, we got a lot of traffic from google and new users coming to Bitrad.io.

    From today on we want to "roll out" this feature to all users and ask you to help us create some unique Content (Station Name, Description, Images from Radiostations and more) for our Database.


    If we get f. e. 50 users which are adding or editing 1 radiostation a day or 30 per month, we were able to get a lot of new or updated content to the Website. Just as an average.

    I hope and I am pretty sure we as a community can update the Database very fast. We did this with this community at the start from the Website and we will do this again.


    Google and other search engines LOVE unique Content and we get a lot of (FREE) users from it. We, some admins and some users changed only a few radio stations in the past month but the result is more than great.


    As an example:

    In the past 3 months, we got a lot of new people using Bitrad.io

    Alexa Site Information for Bitrad.io


    Bitrad.io Alexa Site ranks went up from 172.992 to now 75.261 In global internet traffic and engagement over the past 90 days.


    Hope some of you guys and girls will join. We made it very simple to add, edit or delete stations for Bitrad.io.

    You will also earn activity points for helping us creating the biggest radio station portal. How much you can earn?

    100.000 BRO for content creators:


    To get traffic to this new feature and users to use it to help us update the content we will give away up to 100.000 BRO until the end of the year.

    You will earn activity points which are getting converted to BRO. As a Bonus, we will start this additional lottery for users. We don't take these 100.000 bros from the Bitrad.io Funding address.

    I bought back over 100.000 BRO and will give these BROs away until the end of the year.


    How it works:

    We track every change which is done by a user in our database. If we reach 100,000 changes by the end of the year as a community, 100,000 BROs will be given away to the content creators.

    If we only have f.e 30.000 changes until the end of the year 30.000 BRO will be given away.

    How exactly the distribution of the BRO works, will be published soon.


    You can see here how many accepted changes we have.

    Bitradio Stats Page - Klick on Content


    What is a change? If you edit f.e. the name of the station, the description of the station and the image of the station... = 3 Chages = 3 BRO giveaway in a lottery.


    Other things we work on at the moment:


    1) Our own Blockexplorer will be ready by the end of the year. We want to have this traffic on our website. Maybe we start this new explorer under an external domain and host also other Coins on this Website. (They have to pay fees in BRO) We registered the Domain Coincha.in and will use this maybe later this year for this project. (PLANNED NOT SURE ATM)


    2) New Features for iOS and Android player with a feature where you need BRO to get access to. More will be published when it is ready and working.


    3) 100 Masternodes (Shared Masternodes) until the end of the year. We will start and host 100 Masternodes until the end of the year and update all existing masternodes and fixing the bugs we have von the masternode website. New shares for you as an user. No Fees for hosting these old and new masternodes.


    4) iOS and Android Wallet. We have invested a lot of time for this feature. We have a working iOS Wallet but this wallet is not so stable to get released at the moment. We try to fix all issues and release this wallet when we are ready for it. If there is no way to fix it we have to start from scratch and do everything again.


    5) Redesign of Bitrad.io will also start this winter. I can't promise a release date yet. But we will start on the redesign of the Website in Dezember.


    Have a nice Sunday


    Uwe

    Hello everyone,


    we wanted to make a wallet Update because of some issues we had in the past.


    Our new wallet is now ready and we will start this new Blockchain in about two to three weeks from now. Because the protocol changed a lot we have to go to this new Blockchain. This is a complete upgrade (new base entirely) from the previous release.



    All wallets will be credited in a 1:1 manner. If you have BRO on one address for which you own the private Key (in YOUR WALLET.DAT) you will also own the same amount of BRO on our New Chain.

    For you, as a user, nothing will change.


    The only thing you have to do, you will need to dump (export) your wallet into a dump file and import into the new wallet once it's released. Its very simple. No worries. Your Addresses and Keys stay the same. No one has access to them. We plan to release the new wallet at the beginning of May.


    How to make a copy of your Wallet?


    Open The Bitrad.io Wallet

    Klick on File

    Klick on Backup Wallet

    Save the Wallet




    It is important that when we reach BLOCK 500.000 please dont send or accept BRO as it could lead to potential loss as that is the date the snapshot is being taken.

    We take all balances from BLOCK 500.000 and automatically send out your coins to the new Chain.


    Example:

    https://chainz.cryptoid.info/bro/address.dws?604576.htm

    BmHK2WsWnnXv8cRd7RaJevnE6mse67jk2K


    I chose this address as an example. If on Block 500.000 the Balance of 3,780.10596847 BRO still exists we will send out 3,780.10596847 BRO to this address in one transaction. All-Transactions in our old chain will not show up. Only the Balance will get sent out.


    We will coordinate with Crex24 and also inform Tradsetoshi.


    What are the next steps:

    - Shutdown Payouts from Block 495.000

    - You still earn BRO for listening Radio, but payouts will be disabled

    - Starting the new Network (Blockchain)

    - Waiting for Block 500.000

    - Sending out ALL balances

    - Compiling the New wallets for you to download it on our Website. (Windows, Mac, Linux)

    - You are then able to import the secured file (wallet.dat)


    If you have questions please let us know.

    Hello everyone,


    today is our second Birthday. On 19.03.2017 Bitrad.io was going online. First of all, I want to thank you so much for being part of our Community and help us out by adding stations or helping other users understanding what Bitrad.io is and help us grow.


    With this post, I want to give you a quick update on things we are working at the moment and things wich are done until now.


    1) Creating a new Content System for users


    Admins, Moderators and some Users with a special status were able to edit and add radio stations for Bitrad.io since the start of the website.


    To get a much better quality of radio stations in our database we want to roll out this feature to all user which have an account on Bitrad.io and want to help us adding and editing stations.


    This Update requires a new structure of our database for the website Bitrad.io and our apps. This is the reason we don't have rolled out our Android app yet.


    The Good News is... We are ready to roll this feature out today. We need a short downtime of the Website tonight from 22 UTC (roundabout). After this update of the database and a lot more code, we have improved we are also able to roll out the Android App.


    It is possible that we have some bugs in this new version. But as you know we fix them all. If you find something please post it here and we will fix it as soon as possible. If you want to add or edit radio stations, please post your user ID in this threat. All User will later be able to do this. But for further testing we need a smal group of people first.



    2) Android App


    We are also ready to roll out the Android App in a few days from now. We have to test everything (we have changed) and plan to make it available in April 2019. We also have to upgrade the IOS App. This will also be done in April.


    3) New wallet Version


    We know we have some issue with our existing wallet. So we have to replace it and rewrite a lot of things. We also work on this over 5 months now. An exact date is not possible to address.

    The great News: The new wallet software is in testnet and everything is working great. We want to make sure everything is running and we will test it some days more.

    I am pretty sure we will roll this new wallet out in April as well.


    4) Special 2. Birthday Promo


    We will also do a special promo to celebrate our second Birthday with you. We will double payouts for one week. We will announce the date later this month. We want to have everything ready to do this promo. (New Content System, New Android App, Updated iOS APP, and the new wallet.) After we upgraded everything we will announce this special bonus for you all.


    We are here to stay and hope you will support us as you did for the last two years.


    Thanks so much to everyone.


    Have a great day


    Uwe

    Hello everyone,

    with this post, I want to give you a quick update on things we are working at the moment.

    1) Creating a new Content System for users


    Admins, Moderators and some Users with a special status were able to edit and add radio stations for Bitrad.io since the start of the website.
    To get a much better quality of radio stations in our database we want to roll out this feature to all user which have an account on Bitrad.io and want to help us adding and editing stations.
    This Update requires a new structure of our database for the website Bitrad.io and our apps. This is the reason we don't have rolled out our Android app yet.

    If we had rolled out the app we have to make changes and we don't want to do this work again. So first we publish this new feature early March (that's the plan) and then go for the release of the Android App.

    With this feature, we will also change Premium. Our premium feature was built for users which helping us getting the biggest radio station portal in the world. At the moment every user is able to buy premium for a month. This will change. Users wich are helping us creating these content / adding or editing radio stations will get a free Premium account for a month or up to 36 Month. Maybe it's also possible to buy Premium again. But we have to find out what's fair.

    A user which is investing time to get radio stations working will earn this premium more than a user which is buying it for 1 BRO. Let's see what we can do with this. But there will be free premium Accounts for all of you helping us creating this content.

    2) Android App

    We and some users of the community tested the Android app and there are a few bugs to fix. After rolling out the new content/radio station structure and feature we are ready to publish the Android app.

    3) New wallet Version

    We know we have some issue with our existing wallet. So we have to replace it and rewrite a lot of things. We also work on this over 5 months now. An exact date is not possible to address. We plan to update it in Q1 2019.

    More Details will come soon. We work hard to roll out some of these features before our second Birthday on 19.03.2019.

    Have a great Sunday

    Uwe

    Thanks a lot for your Post. And yes you are right.

    Last month there was not Announcement and yes we wa t and have to keep you informed.


    New News feature will be released this weekend. We will post also small thing to keep you informed.


    ADS: yes we are in a bear market and dont display a lot of ads. So we cannot burn coins from this. And we will never able to burn all coins we generate with ads.


    In November we will burn Coins from Premium Account.

    I will check it and burn it.


    Again. Thanks a lot for your Post.


    Uwe

    Hello everyone,


    today I want to inform you about the things we made in September until now.


    1. New Feature News

    At the moment we don’t have a single point for users to inform them about the news we have. Some users are only on Telegram, some are following us via Twitter and other go to our Forum.

    A lot of users don’t know if we implement something new or have news for you (Example payout engine is not working) Dice down etc.

    We can't and don't want to inform you via email because nobody likes a lot of emails. So we have to implement a feature to the website where users which want actual news will get them.


    This Weekend we will implement a News page on Bitrad.io. Every user can have a look at it an get the latest news.

    -> We will also inform you if we have updated some stations or added some stations.

    -> We want to keep you informed when we have issues or bugs on the Website.

    -> Users see the news on our site and don’t have to switch to different channels to get information


    This was a big issue in the past and we fix this lag of information this weekend.


    2. Lottery

    Our Winners of the Premium account receive the win today. The Lottery for the BRO 25, 50, and 100 get determined on Sunday 14.10.2018 18 UTC 20 CET

    I want to apologize for the delay. If you want to join our Livestream you can watch it here:


    LIVE

    Please Follow us if you have a Twitch Account:


    We will give away a maximum 100 x 5 BRO for users which are online in the stream. Every user can only get 5 BRO one time. You have to be able to send us a Message in the twitch chat to get BRO.

    We do these giveaways during the stream. So be online BEFORE we start with the lottery.


    Sunday 14.10.2018 from 15 UTC 17 UTC 100 x 5 BRO giveaway

    Sunday 14.10.2018 18 UTC 20 CET -> Choosing Winners of 25, 50 and 100 BRO



    3. ioS Promo

    Every user which is downloading the iOS App, start it and listen to radio will get a special Bonus paid in BRO.

    We will add this Promo in a different post where users can post their User ID. At the end of the year, we will payout the BROs.


    This is one Idea to get more Users on our Free iOS App. So if you have an iOS Device download our free app here. And you are able to join this Promo.

    Detailed information will follow. We have app-. 4000 ìOS Downloads at the moment. One of our competitors already has 28 million downloads. It's a big market we can grow into.

    And Android is also in the Pipeline.


    4. Master nodes Shares

    We fixed the issues we had with master nodes. We created a script which is checking every minute if the master node is up and running. If a master node (our 40 shared master nodes) is going down for some reason, the script is restating it immediately. We also plan to do automatic payouts for the master nodes so there will not be a delay anymore. We plan to do these automated payouts every week. But let us check if it is possible without issues. We plan to roll out this feature in Q1 2019.


    We will also add some New Master nodes in Q4 2018 and Q1 2019


    5. Roadmap

    We also have created a Roadmap for the next months and I want to share it with you. This is a living roadmap. A plan. Not sure if we can make it in this time.

    But for now, we think we can make it. Thanks a lot to WlanWerner for this.






    5. Content - 2019 will be our year of Content

    Today we have over 210,000 registered users. Over 20,000 users use our site on a monthly basis. We are sure that we will grow significantly in the year 2019, as the majority of our users have "only" found us through forums such as Bitcointalk and other Crypto sites.


    By expanding the content (more radio stations and a faster updating of the channels) we are listed higher in search engines and reach so many more users. For this step, however, it was necessary to offer the pages in several languages. This feature is now successfully implemented. Additional Languages are also planned for 2019.


    We will develop a feature where users can add new channels, update channels. We want to be the Website with the most listed radio stations. (Worldwide), I know this is a huge step. But with this userbase we can reach this goal very fast and i think maybe within a year.


    Users receive BRO for this task. How exactly the distribution and how many additional BRO will be distributed to the users who help us to update and add stations will be announced. We will not lower the payout rate for listeners. No additional coins are generated. We will either repurchase coins or pay out part of the remaining 5 million coins to the users, who help us to create the largest radio database worldwide.


    We will also use an API from Shoutcast to add more functional channels to our website. Update station logos and add descriptions to the stations. For this, we need users from November onwards who want to help build the largest radio station database in the world. We will inform you when this feature is available and how you can help if you want. If you have ideas about how we should distribute the coins. How can this work? Wich functions you need for this. Please let us know and post it in the comments.


    6. Trademark

    We have invested a lot of money to protect the name Bitradio. This step is important for the future in order to be able to take legal action against the use of the Bitradio brand. This also applies, for example, to domain names with the name BITRADIO. I know that this step will not help to increase the price of BRO. I just want to show you that we are here and will stay here and are far away from being another dead crypto project.


    We have successfully protected the Word BITRADIO in the following countries:

    Austria

    Belgium

    Bulgaria

    Croatia

    Cyprus

    Czech Republic

    Denmark

    Estonia
