News from Pigzbe HQ
Hello, beautiful Pigsters!
We hope you’re having a great March! Spring is just around the corner! It’s been a long busy winter here at Pigzbe HQ, and things are moving ahead quickly as we close in on our shipping date in summer 2019.
But we never forget you guys so we wanted to take the time to update you on a few exciting things that have been happening.
User testers needed: become a Guinea Pigzbe ;)
This week we’re excited to be kicking off the first major round of user testing for the Pigzbe Parents App. We’ve turned one of our meeting rooms into a temporary testing lab, where we’re watching dozens of people run through the app and improving what we’ve built based on their feedback.
We’re working to build a larger community of user testers who want to help our development team, and who better than our Kickstarter community?!
If you want to join them sign up here – not only will you get a sneak peek of what we’re working on, we’ll pay you money and (if you are in London*) feed you doughnuts :-)
*If you live overseas you can still take part in user testing, but we can’t feed you doughnuts :-(
More awards for Pigzbe!
Late February in Seattle, surrounded by Silicon Valley’s design elite, we were incredibly surprised, excited and honoured to win the Future Voice category at the IxDA Awards.
The “Future Voice” award recognizes ‘work that demonstrates the profound potential of Interaction Design, which at its heart deals with the dynamics and depth of human relationship and conversation. Recognizing its recipient celebrates evidence of what Interaction Design could choose to become.’
Wollo is live on the Wirex – the world’s leading crypto payment card
We’re very proud of our partnership with Wirex (read more about that here). Long term this will allow us to connect every Pigzbe user up with a family payment card, opening up real-world Wollo payment in 40 million locations.
Ahead of the launch of our card, Wollo became one of a highly select group of currencies, including Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin, listed on Wirex. This is a huge achievement for such a young currency and a big vote of confidence in our vision.
WLO also became the first Stellar-based token to be listed on Wirex. And, of course, it’s the first exchange listing of 2019 for us — plenty more where that came from.
The Pigzbe world tour continues
Pigzbe continues to make waves and get people excited across the world! From meetups in Japan to Toy Fairs in Germany. In case you missed it, here is a roundup of some of the media coverage we picked up at CES in Las Vegas earlier this year.
