ANU#50 — Credit Card Payments and AppCoins Protocol Retrospective

Welcome to the AppCoins News Update, ‘ANU’ for short. This week, we’ve focused on credit card payments and flow, bug fixes, as well as minor tweaks and issues in the AppCoins Wallet.

During the last few years, the AppCoins Protocol processed thousands of payments using the four main payment methods: AppCoins, AppCoins Credits, Credit Card and Paypal.

We have put a lot of effort into making the user experience as easy and smooth as possible. This time we are working on improving the error feedback that users receive when they have an issue paying with Credit Card and/or Paypal.

As you may know, during the last few months, we’ve delivered new features such as update notifications, backup suggestions, among many others.

Now, we have taken the time to look back and correct any minor issues that were still occurring in the AppCoins Wallet. We’ve corrected some crashes and improved performance.

Following last month’s protocol KPIs performance, on this ANU we have collected the values from November, regarding both flows using AppCoins, IAP and User Acquisition, the number of apps downloaded with the integration of AppCoins, as well as indicators from the SDK, as the table shows below.

As always, you’re invited to follow our work regarding all of the products we’re working on:

ANU#50 is here and we couldn’t be happier! It’s been a long road since we shared our first AppCoins News Update with our community, and many milestones have been reached since.

From the various events we’ve attended (and continue to do so) to promote the AppCoins Universe, to the hard-working days (and a few nights) our Team has spent to deliver what’s set in the roadmap — we have certainly been busy!

Moreover, all of the hard work has paid off as the AppCoins Protocol has been adopted by several app stores and developers. This has resulted in over 2500 apps using the AppCoins in-app billing system so far!

Our goal has always been clear from the very beginning: tackle the app economy’s biggest challenges and create a trusted environment for all parties involved. Although there’s certainly a long road ahead, the AppCoins Protocol continues to grow (stronger) every day and we’re excited for what’s ahead!

Thank you all for supporting our vision to create an open, fair and exciting universal language for the app economy.
