They use blockchain to send greetings
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.
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 and receiving the wishes required IT knowledge, but they knew that Mathew, being a blockchain enthusiast, will manage to read them. The gift was such a thrill that people suggested it should be available for everyone, not just IT specialists. That is how Mathew 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.
- 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: 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, 13th to get the cards with a price guarantee.
"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." says Agnieszka.
