Update from CEO - Arne Peder Blix

Dear All, our marketing campaign is now warmed up and ready to start revving. 🙂

It took some time for us to get things geared and ready, but now our SoMe numbers are starting to smile and a lot of larger contributors have started to show interest.

Fun fact: Did you know that Friend Software Corp is a partly owned by the Norwegian Governmental VC fund Investinor http://www.investinor.no/en/portfolio/

If you are interested in contributing and have questions, you can either contact my colleagues in the Telegram group https://t.me/friendupcloud or, if your contribution is larger, directly on email to ico@friendup.cloud. We have some special offers.

I am on my way to LA and London as I write this and will meet with a lot of big fish and Whales (VC funds and all other kinds) and with some karma, this will - with your help - accelerate the PreSale. You can access the PreSale directly here: https://tge.friendup.cloud/closed

Contributions are highly appreciated and you get 20% bonus for doing so. 30% if 20+ ETH (for as long as we can).

Hogne (Chief Architect and Thomas (CTO) are attending EthCC in Paris spreading the word and interacting with UX / UI designers (will see results of this soon), partners, potential partners, fans and Friends.

Developer’s Update

This week, we launched our new open-source website.

Our new website will keep you up to date about our open source project, our sub projects and available developer resources.

This space is where users and developers can immerse themselves in the Friend technology, and will give new developers some help getting started with coding for Friend.
