Sorry if we’ve been a bit quiet lately, but we’ve been hard at work behind the scenes. Over the last few months, we’ve focused all of our attention on our signed contracts and the integration of these agreements.
Given the technology, and that the process is so new, we can overlook that this can take a bit longer than we originally expected. Some of these delays are simply timing and coordination of multiple technical teams and sometimes these delays are a good thing! While working with our partners and upcoming merchants, we have implemented new requested feature sets that they wanted to see on the platform.
We’re happy to announce our current progress and look forward to continuing our updates while we continue to work on onboarding the over 100 merchants we currently have in our pipeline! Some of these merchants are currently using cryptocurrency as a payment method and have gained quite a following in the space, which makes the transition to using our platform all that much easier. You will begin seeing announcements of these merchants over the next month.
As big as they have been, and as much work as they take to execute, we haven’t rested on our laurels with our current contracts either. While our technical team has been working on the implementation of our current contracts, our management team has been travelling around North America and Europe meeting with key players in multiple industries working on developing new relationships and partnerships. While we can’t say much more right now, over the coming months, we will be able to announce the fruits of our labour (and countless days of jetlag😴 😴 ).
We’re also excited about being able to see NCCO being used as the transactional currency that it was designed to be. As you have likely noticed, there hasn’t been a lot of activity with NCCO and honestly, we haven’t focused any of our marketing efforts towards it. Why would we? There has been no place to use it. But not to worry, we haven’t forgotten about it. We’re continuing to work on technical advancements and acceptance of NCCO and are looking forward to properly rolling it out this year. Announcing merchant acceptance, loyalty and rewards, and technology updates around the coin.
Now, that we as a company are starting to turn the corner and are in the final phase of the onboarding process, you will start to see our merchants going live. All of the hard work that has been going on behind the scenes and the late nights is paying off – you may have seen some of our Instagram updates when we fed the team as they worked away late into the evening to meet deadlines.
We want to take a moment to step back and reflect on our achievements and to THANK YOU and all of our supporters for your patience and support over the last couple of months. It truly is incredible how far we have come in such a short period of time when you think about all of the things that needed to come together to make all of this happen, it feels like a lifetime!
In 12 months, who would have thought that we could complete a new way of processing payments, the introduction of cryptocurrency in general as a method to transact both online and off, the development of our own cryptocurrency, the NC Exchange, and now we will be going live with merchants.
Not only is this a huge achievement, it’s the beginning phase that not only separates us from being associated with the volatility of cryptocurrency but validating it as a currency to be used for everyday transactions.
