The launch of SureRemit on Monday (July 30th) is a day that many in the community have spent months anxiously awaiting. The promise that brought us here, an application that puts more money in the hands of the people who need it most instead of taking advantage of them and an all too rare deployed (the key word) application that leverages cryptocurrency and blockchain technologies, is 48 hours from being realized.
All credit goes to the SureRemit co-founders, their team, the world class venture groups backing them (500 Startups, #Hashed, dAlchemy, and GreenHouse Capital), and the Stellar Foundation. This group avoided crypto-hype at all costs, they buckled down, they solved amazingly challenging problems, and they built a real global remittance platform instead of an endless cycle of “partnership” announcements. This is rare and transformative stuff and, as a community member, tremendously exciting to watch.
If you’re new here, and you likely are, you’re probably wondering how you can get involved. The official SureRemit Telegram circle will be where most of the community assembles on launch day. It should be an exciting place. If you’re a cryptocurrency enthusiast you may want to purchase the RMT tokens that will power SureRemit remittances. Of course, reading the whitepaper is a great way to get up to speed but if that is too dry for you browsing the media page and skimming the FAQ will be very informative as well. There are so many ways that you can get involved in the SureRemit community – and that list will be growing after launch. We’re going to change the world and have fun doing it. Join us!
