Discussion: Should we fund this proposal?
|No comments so far?
Be the first to start the discussion!
I do not think this proposal is likely to be de-funded at this point, but Bitcart's performance will inform my votes on future proposals as well.
Bad user experience. Please inform me when you fix this bugs.
You can visit bitcart.io or beta.bitcart.io you get the beta version and www.bitcart.io is the old version. We would like people who test the beta version to please report feedback to us on email@example.com
A huge thank you for your support!
This needs to be automated ASAP.
A huge thank you for your overwhelming support for our proposal! We will continue to answer any questions by the community daily and continue to work 24/7 for the Dash community!
As promised, Bitcart v4.0 is here!
Here's an exclusive link:
This is a login for access to v4.0 and we invite you to try it out and let us know what you think.
We will enable the sign in/ register button once the backend is connected which will be the end of the day. You can get a feel for how the website will look.
1. You can see we have added hotels.com and a list of other gift cards and a walkthrough will be on v4.0 explaining how you can avail of these using Bitcart.
2. No bitcoin in the logo (complete Dash exclusivity)
3. Updated the login member area (available in beta-only)
4. Updated contact information
5. New frontend design and customer journey
There are a number of backend updates which are detailed in our Trello which we are working on connecting now. This will connect the backend to the frontend and will be ready for people to login.
You can find the Trello updates as we go along:
Thanks for your patience and continued support!
Thanks to everyone who's voted and given feedack. This feedback is invaluable to us improving our service. Today around midnight Pacific time we will launch Bitcart v4.0 Beta for you to try.
Bitcart is ready to begin scaling and we have a very strong development team composed of experts in Amazon, automation and AI who are working on our development roadmap:
As we develop we need the resources to bring our service to the top and seriously contend with Purse.io and other competitors in the space who refuse to switch to Dash. Bitcart only accepts Dash and all our capital stays in Dash. We want the best for Dash and Bitcart together. With your help we can achieve great things for v4.0
I will be on video again today answering any questions that will help earn your support.
As a masternode owner and a customer of BitCart I have to say that you currently have a poor website, poor customer service and a poor delivery time frame. It generally takes about a week before one gets their cards numbers. No communication on status ever occurs, and response to support emails is non-existent. Currently, you are not running your business very well.
Having said all that, I believe in your vision and I want it to succeed, but I worry you are damaging your brand with a poor customer experience.
So, will this money also go to improve your business operations/website/communications/delivery?
Since we dropped bitcoin in June in favour of Dash, we've withstood hundreds of DDoS attacks and hack attempts on our website. We've never been hacked, however each time the attack is made our automation processor goes down and we have to manually go through thousands of transactions to find paid orders. This is causing slower than usual delivery times for certain orders. In most cases we are under 24 hours. Therefore the attacks are not successful but they have slowed our service.
Bitcart v4.0 is going live today at midnight Pacific time and we are developing better automation to speed up order delivery and communications. Please take a look at the new updated website tonight.
This marketing plan will be huge for attracting more customers and therefore we can buy and sell more gift cards. By investing money from the supernode, Dash will be getting 3 months of full-time marketing for the 15% off Amazon discount to millions of people. We are determined and confident to make this extremely successful for the Dash ecosystem.
Hi everyone, here's the second video of the Proposal. I will answer questions everyday until the proposal has ended.
Thanks for voting!
Tomorrow is the launch of v4.0 which will begin automating this process to make delivery more instant and hassle-free. With a new front-end and back-end we will scale the business to ensure no mistakes such as this one are made again.
With this budget we can focus on our brand and marketing and with the current development roadmap we will scale the business:
Love the idea -- want it to succeed. But execution of simple business thus far has been embarrassing.
It would be interesting for the community to see the impact of their marketing campaign
Bitcart does not support bitcoin. We only accept Dash. If you try and pay with bitcoin on our website it will tell you that we don't support it. Our next update v4.0 is on Friday. This is for a new frontend design to clean up bugs and to remove the bitcoin logo from the website. We are 100% Dash exclusive.
The website has our email address listed on the bottom. It's firstname.lastname@example.org which is working fine so people don't need to use Twitter. This is another frontend design which is being changed with the v4.0 update.
If you have any questions let me know, thanks.

So you have already reached your goal? Or am I understanding this wrong?
Additionally, you could use a drop shipper like myus.com if you really want to shop on amazon.com
Cant you just rebrand Dashcart
after that you will have my votes.

Scalability is the most difficult thing for any startup in my opinion. We have addressed this under our development roadmap already. On Friday we will launch v4.0 which is the beginning of Phase Two: Scaling Up. You can see exactly how we plan to scale here, which includes rewriting the codebase and backend. It's important to note that we already have allocated a budget for this development so we don't need to include it in this proposal.
Does this make sense?
I was not aware that South Korea was able to use your Amazon GC's. People in Europe can't use them, right? Can you list all the major places where you can use the cards, or not use them.
South Korea is interesting because our customers there are crazy for shopping on Amazon.com for a wider selection of items. They will generally drop ship their orders using https://www.myus.com/ for example, who then ship the items to them.
Drop shipping is popular in China especially, where there is a 40% luxury tax on top of VAT for certain items.
We want to also announce that our Amazon gift cards can be redeemed for the following stores:
A full list of stores can be found here:
We've been hinting for a while that we can service more stores and finally now that we are on Phase 2: Scale Up we are ready for the increased demand this news will bring.
Full instructions on how to exchange your Amazon for these stores will be included on the new website update on Friday.
I can understand why people would like to see the new website before voting.
Great work, Graham!
With all the respect and love.
In my case I am asking for Dash to be spent on my company which only accepts Dash. Dash will be featured in all my ads. The distinguishing feature is that we only accept Dash!
These ads will be placed in Seattle where Amazon is headquartered for the purpose of bringing loyal Amazon customers into Dash to get their 15% saving. The ads will of course benefit my company but it's not so independent when we have an exclusive deal with Dash. Dash paid us for exclusivity to get our service out there because they see the return. If Dash only advertised the word "Dash" around grocery stores nobody would look twice. The purpose for our ads is "Save 15% on Amazon when you shop using Dash" and you can instantly see the hook. This is far more effective advertising and I want Dash to use Bitcart for this end goal.
In your trello board of things to do "Add Ethereum Payment method for selling gc" - please explain?????????????????????????????
When does the 12 month exclusivity come to an end?
I see the entirety of your company runs on Dash, maybe you should change your name to Dashcart (:
Watch our video for more specifics:
You can see examples of previous adverts such as the racer jet at Oshkosh, which I've linked in the proposal above for your viewing. Thanks!
