PotCoin Developer Update February-March 2017

Hello PotCoin Community,

We wanted to give everyone a quick update regarding the Winter/Sprint roadmap we posted back on December 29th. As promised, we will make our best efforts to keep the community aware of what we are doing and working on.

• We have submitted the Potwallet App to the Apple stores but got denied. As per Apple’s policy, No specific reason is given but their agent hinted that PotCoin as a cryptocurrency is not yet accepted on the store. We will continue to work with Apple and their requests hoping they will eventually approve the App.

• The Android App, everything went through fine and we are adding latest patches to it and will push it live soon.

• The new updates and features for PotWallet.com are done and are being tested internally, so far no major issues have been reported, Security is the most important thing for us and we want to make sure users coins are well protected so please be patient and we will release more news once it’s ready.

• We have signed an agreement with a Licensed Producer in Canada to offer PotCoin as a reward system and to accept PotCoin as a form of payment. The LP will release the news in the coming month.

• We have also been approached by some Medical Marijuana Sites in Canada that are looking to offer PotCoin as a reward system, more news will come next month.

2017 is going to be a big year for PotCoin and PotWallet. Many exciting news and developments to come.

Stay tuned fellow PotCoiners !!!

Potcoin Development Update – Dec 2016

Hello Everyone,

We wanted to give everyone a quick update of what we’ve been working on. As promised, we will make our best efforts to keep the community aware of what we are doing and working on.

We believe being the most transparent possible will yield the best possible outcome.

The Beta version launch of our PotWallet App was a great success. We thank all beta testers for their valuable feedback.

We are looking into submitting the Apps to the corresponding stores (Apple, Google, Microsoft) in early 2017.

Our team has grown to 4 full time developers as we continue to build the systems necessary to make Potcoin and PotWallet scale to high volume transactions.

We will be announcing our 100% refactored version of PotWallet in the beginning of 2017 as well. This version will include a revamped interface, new features, drastically improved scalability and security.

We are also building extensive WEB plugins and extensions to make Potcoin easily acceptable on all platforms (magento, wordpress, shopify, etc…)

As legalization is fast approaching in Canada, we are striving to make sure all our systems are GO to accommodate the flow of new Potcoin users and transactions.

We are currently in negotiation with many MMJ Licensed Producers in Canada in order to accept Potcoin and offer it as a reward system to their patients.

They are very excited about Potcoin and see the many benefits of a system like that for patients, producers, doctors and everyone involved in the industry.

2017 is going to be a big year for Potcoin and PotWallet. Many exciting news and developments to come.

Stay tuned fellow Potcoiners !!!
