Bitcoin ninjas, I (John) need your help.
I'm really keen to support bitcoin payments but one (among many) thing I lack is the experience and knowledge about bitcoin to make this possible. I need you.
I need our bitcoin effort to be community driven, I'm happy to write the code and speak with partners but I need you to tell me:
1) What you think the NFC Ring bitcoin experience should be.
2) What security is adequate and different approaches to security.
3) Who (if anyone) you think we should partner with to provide this service.
I think the best place to have these conversations is on our forum so please share your thoughts and opinions.
From my perspective I think it would be perfect if I could just walk into my favorite pub and use my NFC ring much like how I can use a credit / debit card for contact-less payments (limited to £20 per transaction and max 3 a day or so).
Minor delay update
With regards to production delays/updates, we are delayed, we're still not sure exactly by how much yet but it's at least a month, as soon as we have an idea of our updated schedule we will let you know, at the very latest mid next week. I'm very sorry about the lack of updates about delays, I just don't want to send an update saying "Hey we're delayed we don't know how long for", I'd rather wait a week and say "Hey we're delayed and we think it's by X weeks", if you think I'm doing it wrong just let us know in the comments, I'm happy to change the frequency of updates if it helps.
If you are going to use your NFC Ring for a special occasion such as a civil union/partnership/wedding or some other formal/official event where the ring plays a huge part please do get in touch via our email@example.com including the date you need the ring for. My plan is to get prototypes sent out to these people, please don't abuse this offer, the numbers are obviously limited.
