Soft Launching

Last week I did a soft launch of the revamped Blockagram platform that I’ve been working on for the last while.

Blockagram is a service that allows you to send messages to people for marketing purposes with a small amount of Bitcoin to incentivize them to both subscribe to your marketing list, and act on the messages they get.

Ultimately, I hope to build it out to expand the number of services that businesses could make use of to spend Bitcoin, and that consumers could earn bitcoin from. It’s a missing part of the bitcoin economy that is preventing faster adoption. If businesses have opportunities to spend bitcoin on things that would drive more business then they would have an incentive to accept bitcoin for payments.

It is a small step towards something bigger, and is the start of what has been the hardest part for me (historically) of shifting from exclusively development work to working on finding customers and operating the business.
