In one of our previous GreenBacks articles, which you can find here, we talked about their new platform called The Accelerator. The idea behind this platform is to crowdfund projects by pledging GB as a currency. So far, two projects have been funded already!
The first project to be funded was the GreenBacks Android Wallet, which will include mobile staking capabilities. The goal was to reach 30,000 GreenBacks in funding, and was reached with only 3 people pledging big amounts to the project. Well done!
As you may recall from one of our other previous articles, this GreenBacks Android Wallet with mobile staking will be built by an external developer. All funds raised for this project will be matched by the developers, and used to pay for said developer.
The second project on The Accelerator to get funded is a GreenBacks Poker Site & Client. With five different people pledging a total of 22,500 GB to the cause, the goal was reached in mere days. This amount will also be matched by the developers to pay for an external developer.
For those of you who want to figure out the values in Bitcoin, let’s do some quick calculations. About 0.66 Bitcoin has been raised to get the Android Wallet developer, and another 0.5 Bitcoin for the Poker Site & client. These values are assuming the GreenBacks price doesn’t go below or above 0,000011 Bitcoin per GB.
There are a few other projects on The Accelerator waiting for your pledges. A Facebook Ad Campaign for GreenBacks for example, as well as a Multiplatform News App project and Hashbacking (buying hashlets and use the generated revenue to purchase GB on exchanges) are all looking for help from the GreenBacks community.
