After the announcement of our MVP release schedule in the February community update, the entire VETRI team was very encouraged by the positive feedback we received. A big thank you to all our community members who reached out and offered their help in one way or another!
Shortly after the MVP release announcement, we hosted an AMA with Daniel Gasteiger in our official Telegram group. In case you missed it, you can read up on the questions and answers here.
In the beginning of the month, we also launched our updated website. Starting today, you can sign up via the website as a tester for the VETRI MVP. So head over there now and sign up to become one of the first people to get access to the release.
The community MVP release is scheduled for April 30th. In order to access the test application you will need to go through TestFlight (for iOS) or Play Store Alpha (for Android). The application will run on the Ethereum testnet, meaning the tokens which are being transferred are not real VLDs but test tokens without value. This is to avoid the loss of real tokens in case any bugs are discovered during this phase. The goal of this phase is to test the application on a large variety of devices and operating systems, to test the functionality of different features and to collect feedback on the UX. This is your opportunity to help shape the future of the data economy, so don’t miss your chance and sign up now!
Ahead of the release on April 30th, we would like to take the opportunity to celebrate together with you – the VETRI community – our achievements since the launch of the project a year ago. This is why we are excited to invite you to the second VETRI community meetup at Trust Square on April 29th. At the meetup, you will be able to meet the VETRI Foundation board members and hear directly from them what the future has in store for VETRI. Most importantly though, you will be able to celebrate a successful year and the resulting MVP release with the VETRI team and fellow community members. Spaces at the meetup are limited, you can sign up here.
