June stood in the sign of the pilot preparation.
Thanks to the great efforts by our community testers, we were able to test the application on a large variety of devices. Being confident in the stability of the app, we are now ready to launch the pilot with our partner STEM/MARK, who will invite their panelists to try out VETRI. At the same time, STEM/MARK will be the first partner to test our “Data Consumer Interface”, the web console which allows data consumers to interact with the VETRI marketplace.
We are currently also conducting last tests on the UX and privacy factors for Facebook data sharing. Assuming a positive and timely outcome, we will be including this feature into the pilot as well.
Before the start of the pilot, we will distribute the VLD rewards to the addresses you provided during the testing.
Of course, we are already looking well beyond the testing and pilot phase. With the completion of the MVP, the VETRI Foundation will be taking over operations of the project from Procivis. The Foundation under the helm of former Cisco CTO Monique Morrow is in the process of acquiring additional partners to move the product beyond the MVP stage.
More details on the handover and future road map will follow in the July and August community update.
Last but not least, we were excited to see VETRI featured in the latest edition of the Red Bull Innovator Magazine which is distributed to private households and startup co-working spaces all over Switzerland.
