We want to thank you for coming. And we all know, based on his back and this is making possible that all of this amazing developers are coming to bitcoin to great apps that we all love. They are using micropayments to discover new business models. That were not possible before. I many of there are yet to discover But there's something. Do we have to face right now? I'll be in a developer on top of Bitcoin, it really sucks. And this is something that me and my team have to
experience at the beginning because there's no ready-made brothers that you can just in time right to focus on great. Would you want to grate on top of it, so we have right now like two different ways of being Brothers. One is like the bottles in general. They are very cool to like working as a pay wash on browsers but they are like limiting were like in the force that you can War at what you can do. And in the other side, we also have like the turkey, some protocols. This kind of solution that they give you more flexibility
because you can actually integrate dent in your back and they have a lot of the required. Level of demand is deceiving no lit. And also at the same time you have to decide if you want to become. I do have to, you know, this going through all these relations and this is something that developers they don't want they just want to focus on creating the wraps. So after all this time and being in their system and try to create some of that we came out without their idea and this new idea is hang castanet. I guess tonight
is a fast and flexible solution to create everything on top of Bitcoin. And this is the first Bitcoin SEK to develop apps on top of Bitcoin. In this, we have like the most, the two most important features that any developer considered when trying to integrate something to create apps. When is it the time Savings? Of course and embarrassing. I would have liked the customization of the UI. We think that the bathrooms are like riding the bottom. They They say they have you to save some time but you have
like a very few constraints because you are limited today, web browsers. And then the two tickets within that they give you like more flexibility, but then you have to learn a lot about Bitcoin. You have to be deciding if you want to eat. Do you want the user's to, you know, to be and XSport in the private case and everything. And we think that this is not something that is kids because before every app that I'm, like, creating an account have to be responsible to my private messenger. So we think this is the
place for hangers connect. We wanted to be something completely different to this to Solutions. We wanted to be fast and we want it to be like completely unlimited so you can build anything on top of Bitcoin. We're talking here about in some cases about that. 90% shorted time-to-market with wheezing is a lot. And how the hell is that possible? We Pocket Edition like very very successful teacher that everyone needs to belong to a Bitcoin. We are very excited, especially about promised payment because it's for the first time we are creating a distraction or on top of and payment almonds.
And we are one of our sincerest. We are very committed with any developer in the world to make it really really easy. So for one of these different modules, what you have is a very simple call Snippets that is almost in plain English so I need developer has to go through all the process to learn bacon because I didn't what they want is just to focus on building the wraps. we see this as Playing with Legos because all this is more pieces. Like you can go to encryption, you go and they don't have said you have and promised payment and then you can come by
everything to be wherever you want. There's no limits in here. Ocho. Oldest apis in driveways and one amazing infrastructure that he's doing everything for you. This is what we call Angus Cloud. How is a solution that we are using right now in April. So you know, from they want, this is his caliber, this is secure and also it's almost a daily basis. We have a great So we seem like this is something really cool. You don't have to be like building your own infrastructure and be dealing with all of this. So you can
focus on creating your own thing. Also hang castaneda's a solution that you integrate in the back end. And this is this gives you completely freedom to be in top of any platform and most importantly, how to build native apps. So, there's no limits and there's something important here because it for iOS developers. If you are on an iOS Developer, you can you probably know that weighs if you are trying to integration web, using side apps, is something that apple is not is actually starting to disallow
and there's like, there's going to be a man for what beer is inside, iOS apps. So we don't want to send leave me anywhere. I don't know. We are excited about virtual reality because now this is possible. And within is really cool to have like the first like Okaloosa working with Bitcoin. Also has a mansion is very important to be issues and their relations and all the responsibilities, and it's something that we from the beginning has a mind to design this solution.
Then of course, this about storing new business, brothers, that were not possible before. He's not just what we are Library juice inside is going to run out that he's like the paper action. Now you can grade. It seems like and you can charge people for like every minute or something. Or some service. You're providing our Wi-Fi service that you pay like for every minute that you have. So you take out Wiki Aries, this is a solution that allows you to focus on build your own thing. No more between jargon,
no more distractions, just focus on creating the best app that you can do guys. And we just take care of the rest will take care of the Beacon Park. What's the real name for this? We are right now in Lithonia internal, testing and turn decorations, prepare like the first bunch of apps through the liver, and I guess I would be accessible to everyone to any developer in the world, in the coming spring. I know, Alex with that you like more more amazing features about Hank and connect.
Oh no. That's where she's first time. Another place lyrics. You know, we come from Spain. So even if we have some brain Parts sometimes because we are at, you know, we lose your train of thought this time we don't have no like we did in the other, the other conference. But we are going out on improvising as always been building, making Bitcoin for the rest of us. And we had a guest connect right now. We are doing the same thing that we've made with hankies wallet, making accessible
for users. We are trying to make Bitcoin easy and accessible for developers worldwide so they can create new kind of apps without having to learn for Bitcoin from start with what we want is ultimately to build that kind of solution in which the developer that comes to us and say hey I just want to build this game whatever I say I just want to add to my car payments, identity, whatever. What can I do? And I'll reply Yes Man. Cast connect So so far, we are very happy about the early feedback that we've getting from, from developers of all the anchors, connect and I wanted to share a couple of
quotes with you. So this one is from Diggin. Must be in the air. Sometimes, he's a great about him is he's a developer and and in charge of of a mail which is a great email flying out that we that sells many issues that you cannot solve, otherwise, if you don't have a payment system integrated with emails. So he said I would have to rub together at least for open sores libraries and in fact, wait a few months before even starting to build the functions available here, if not for connect, that would probably slow me down for a full quarter. And I think that's that's
pretty big deal. And then we have bread bread. Jasper? You might know him also a simple. He's in jail. He should be over here too. Anyway, he's building beat. Every which is a great content platform for Content creators and he said he could save developers 6 to 12 months. Seriously more importantly it lets developers developers focus on what they do. Best creating, great app experiences and what we are very proud of is that you don't people like getting what we are trying to do here with we hunt disconnect and it was very
important for us. But let's talk about distribution. I think this is something that has been forgotten for. This is a topic that's been forgotten for between a developer sit for a while. You spend the few weeks or a few months building, these amazing you up. But how do you reach every what what do you want? What you want this to read as many Bitcoin users as possible so how can we do it? Well, turns out that we have a product that I am sure. Most of all you already know which is the hand guess wallet, for form, any Hand Cash, have become the, the entry point
to bitcoin, or at least their first experience with this technology, and what better way to distribute giraffes that putting your app in front of all of our Hank as enthusiastic user base. When we want you, is that you will be able to reach all of Hank as users. The moment you launch your app. And for that, we are presenting today. The Hand Cash app gallery, which will be a main section inside of hand, cash and will allow you to discover all kinds of jobs and services and experiences that you can connect with with your wallet. So you can
just basically use your your, your phones and identity and everything you do. We hand catch and your hand as friends, you will have a very integrated experience. Inside is coherent ecosystem. And we think this is great for the helpers because it will be very easy for you to to Showcase your your shopping site. And thank you. Let me. Wait, we thought it was a meeting place. We've been working in a while for this because we wanted to make sure that we don't have any issues while at the Brewing process with Waze app, the app store especially but
we are. Okay, so okay, so this is how it's going to work. So what you why you find that one of these ass and you say, ho it, lets it stay what this thing is and you have a description of. What does some screenshot you can contact the developer, whatever. He looks just like one of the App Store that you already know and you if you want to connect with it, you just stop the connect button. Then you approve the the you give the one, that's the other service permission to access, your wallet, funds and identity and boom, you're in you're already there. You don't have
to do anything else. There's no QR codes to use to scan, there's no more issues to boarding process. And the, another cool thing is that you will be Full control of your experience and and personal about your money and personal information at any time. So if we're getting any service, you will be able to see how much money you're making. How much money you're spending, you know, net net radio, you know, how, how, how are you in your balance and you can choose to disconnect your your account at any time that way you are in full control of your experience.
This is another quote that wanted to share about distribution in general. And Brad again, said, Can case has one of the most engaged user bases, in all of between, being able to be alone, their platform and reach their customers, give developers a great distribution system similar to the App Store and we are very proud of that and I think it was one of these missing pieces and these are just some of the the the apps that will be available and the App Store in the in the early stages. There are many more to come, but they didn't want me to to announce publicly
because I'll also there are a few ones that still doesn't exist during the works. And that have been built are being built, fully using hand cast connect. Instead of just another integration, and we are very, very thrilled about that too. And this is something that I wanted to remark. I guess we take your security, very seriously sometimes as obsessive, like, I was like, coming up with things like help with bills at dinner with you read about it, but it's a pretty cool thing for protecting your privacy online with. We want to make sure that you know, that every developer behind
every other that we have in the App Store the app gallery. And every user that you will be connecting, that will be connecting to your app. All of them are verify that they have verified. That entities, we think it's very important that we take this seriously. And we don't allow animals people to just start creating apps and making a fake account and start all over again with all the problems that we have with our internet and we speak when we can have this. So let me talk about it. I passed two minutes or something. Anyway,
I need to say this so fast as for the pricing plans of of connect, you can launch your app and start building it, or whatever for free, and observe a Samsung users have 10000 API calls for 4 months. If you're gaining some traction for just $79 per month, you can have up to 500, 5,000 are connected users and fifty thousand API calls. And if you're really killing it and you get two to 20,000 connected users and to 200,000 API calls per month, you can do it just
to 99 through mouth and we think it's a it's a great deal considering that you don't have right now. You don't have with Kinect you don't have to hire Bitcoin developers. I thought you can hire any kind of developer so so you know, that that also makes it easier for you to do. Hire the best app developers and focus on your experience. Instead of folks, An infrastructure and we want to announce that if you join a hand catch connect this year, you have a 50% discount on the first two years. I think that's a pretty good deal. We are going to be very aggressive with this. We just want you to
start building things and don't worry about money and you please to get started, go to connect. Enjoy the program and we want to thank our. Our partners are entering a bunch of capital to have Ventures and queen geek because they have helped us taking a small project that people really lost from a smaller project at to a serious company will start at 8. Jimmy, we are starting to monetize. Yeah. Hi hun, jaxson, Hayes coin d.com and I'm here with the boys hit from their Grandpa's. Going to start with you today. You have just
launched a new product. They tell me what about that. So today we are now is Hank. Ask connect bank is going to be submitted to buy Bitcoin apps. On top of it is very easy to integrate and allows any kind of new business more than. So we seen helping developers to focus on creating apps and forget about like all these different complexities. I just bring like the best a bit confused about the position with him. We're trying to attract a real light-complected. Your Baker like in San payment Supreme and tell me a John Christiano, all this kind of cool things with
something that you can decorate like in your buttons like in one part of the technology and is just a simple sentence. Fantastic now Alex, let's talk a little bit more about the app ecosystem. Tell me how what you guys fit in with that thing for new business models. And he has created a lot of new apps that are between native and that they do things like you get paid for open up the emails or makes referrals much easier when you open a link or something. So we are enabling we can't disconnect all these kind of cool, new apps. Do we make it more accessible for
new developers outside of Bitcoin. You start creating between up in the next two years in a little at ease. If you can give us right now we are going to transition into becoming an app ecosystem. And we think it's going to be a very thrilling and exciting and fun app ecosystem where people are going to make money and great better content. And I think it's going to take the best of out of between and create great new experience for everybody. Lights fantastic. Thank you so much guys. And we will see what the next one.
