Three blockchain enthusiasts created the website for sending greeting cards, that are stored in blockchain networks. It all started a year ago when one of them was getting married. There is a crowdfunding campaign for the website for everyone to send greeting cards stored for eternity in blockchain. The extra sauce is that the content of the card as well as the card is stored forever, which is guaranteed not by the SendCard, but by the independent technology.
There is a crowdfunding campaign for the website for everyone to send greeting cards stored for eternity in blockchain. The origin of the project is a wedding story.
Mathew Kus, one of the founders, was getting married and his friends were looking for the gift that will be anything but usual. They decided for the electronic wedding wishes saved in blockchain. Sending wishes into the network required development skills and was possible thanks to one of the friends - Bartosz. Receiving the wishes also required IT knowledge, but they knew that Mathew, being a blockchain enthusiast, will manage. The gift was such a thrill that Agnieszka, the last founder, suggested it should be available for everyone, not just IT specialists. That is how the three of them got the idea to create the SendCard project.
SendCard.io is a website where everyone can send an electronic postcard adding personal wishes for categories like birthday, wedding, newborn and love. The extra sauce is that the content of the card as well as the card is stored forever, which is guaranteed not by the SendCard, but by the independent technology.
Blockchain is a technology that excited the IT community over the last years. Its popularity is rocketing, due to the technology features:
- Durability - It is a paper and pen of digital era. Data written in blockchain is persistent and is kept for eternity.
- Availability - Data is accessible 24/7 in the blockchain network. There is no single point of failure. Additionally, information is automatically backed up on many computers (blockchain nodes), so data is safe.
- Transparency - When it runs as a public network, it is independent of any corporation or government.
Blockchain is also a base for cryptocurrencies. Among many implementations available, SendCard selected three, so-called public ones: IOTA, Ethereum and Bitcoin.
Using three different blockchain networks for preventing the message from deletion or changes is not the only cards feature. All designs are tailor-made for the project and will not be available on any other sites. The website is fully responsive and available to anyone, no IT knowledge is required. What is more, the card creator includes suggested greetings suited for each occasion.
The card prices during the campaign are starting from $2, for Premium IOTA Card, going up to $499 for individually designed Bitcoin Card. There is time, until September 13, to get the cards with a price guarantee. After the campaign, the prices will be set according to each cryptocurrency rate.
"Blockchain is still new to many people and to spread the news not only to blockchain society but also among people who appreciate innovation we decided to start a crowdfunding campaign. That gives us another round of feedback and community validation," says Agnieszka.
Many independent teams use crowdfunding to take the first step to create extraordinary projects.
SendCard is a tech project focusing on making the world-changing blockchain technology available for everyday use. It is created by Mateusz Kus- Blockchain Lead, Agnieszka Holownia-Niedzielska- Business Development Manager and Bartosz Niedzielski- Tech Expert. The works regarding the SendCard website started in October 2018 and are at the final stage. After the campaign, the website will operate as a commercial service available worldwide.
