To celebrate the release of Lndr v1.2, we’re hosting a launch contest with a grand prize of $1000 in Ether (ETH)! This contest is open to all Lndr and Blockmason fans around the world.

What is Lndr?

Lndr is our peer-to-peer bill-splitting and expense-sharing mobile app for iOS and Android. It uses the Credit Protocol and the Ethereum blockchain to create, manage and settle casual debts and IOUs between friends. Essentially, "Venmo of the blockchain."

You can download Lndr for iOS on the App Store and Lndr for Android on Google Play

We’re excited to announce the winning entry in our recent hackathon: Gifter ?

Gifter is a decentralized application that allows users to trade gift cards with their peers, purchase gift cards from certain retailers, redeem gift cards in their inventory and more. Gifter is designed as a Google Chrome extension and uses the Credit Protocol and Ethereum blockchain to store data.

The dApp is developed by the team at 6Side: Liam Cope (CEO), Hunter Schofield (CTO), Akshay Sood (COO), Connor Dear (Developer), and Michael Romao (Developer).

Visit the team’s entry page on Github to learn more about Gifter: https://github.com/6ixside/gifter/tree/credit_protocol_submission

Congratulations to the 6Side team! Also, stay tuned to the Weekly Update for an interview with their CEO, Liam Cope, in the near future.

The challenges of marketing Blockchain projects: 16 opinions ?

Blockmason CMO Erik MacKinnon was recently featured in a blog post by Andrey Sergeenkov on the realities of marketing new and emerging technologies.

The article takes a deeper look into many of the minds behind the promotion and marketing of several major Blockchain projects. In the article, 16 industry leaders gather their opinions about the complexities of marketing in the Blockchain niche.
Our very own Erik MacKinnon had this to say:

"The community of people around the world who are interested in blockchain startups, cryptocurrencies and the like is growing, but still small. So as a blockchain technology company we really have to work hard to stand out."
