Dear Friends and Family,
First, let me wish you a very Happy New Year filled with health, wealth and happiness.
We hope that we’ll all spend time with our loved ones and can still meet, or exceed the professional expectations defined by others, or ourselves, as it is important to strike a balance in life, professionally, or when engaging in general conversations.
In 2020 we will make an effort to actively listen and to look for feedback and input at all times. In our team, we will ask everyone to reflect on other viewpoints even more and to build dialogues.
Over the last year we have learned a lot, especially that:
When we started a little over a year ago, we focused our fundraising purely on the crypto space. We’ve since discovered our project is very attractive to more traditional investors as well. This is due to the clear value of the craft brewing industry and the success of many crowdfunded breweries. With this in mind, we have extended our model to allow for traditional investors and now have a number who have substantial funds committed already towards our mission, bringing crypto and traditional investors together.
One of the things that stood out was that thanks to many wonderful people, we accomplished amazing brand awareness about our flagship token, the Craft Beer Coin (CBC). We even won the 'Best In Show' award in Las Vegas in 2019!
Today, we have over 10,000 users with many returning active customers, as they like the simplicity of the app and the cool fact that this is the first of its kind - probably world-wide!
We are honoured to have wonderful partners, who are loyal and faithful in our medium and long-term success. Changing the food and beverage industry to become more independent and distributed is not an easy, simple, or quick task, but we're getting there.
Our objectives for 2020 are:
These objectives are manageable, but we will continue to invite constructive criticism by being fundamentally different to most other FinTech companies and inviting everyone every Friday at 4 pm to our open house, or ‘Meet the Founders’ as we like to call it. Check out the event section of our website, our Telegram channel, or our other Social Media platforms for more details.
I would like to give a special shout-out to the people who were outstanding in supporting us throughout the past year:
We are excited to see what 2020 will bring for us. We are looking forward to meeting everyone throughout the year and we can't wait to continue to help the craft food and beverage industry flourish.
