Hunter and I have been busy developing Smarkets software and I wanted to give an update on everything we’ve been working on since the last post. It’s taken a little longer than we anticipated, but we’re getting close and launch is well within sight.
- Testing should be available shortly. If you haven’t contacted us already, please send your information if you’d like to be one of the initial testers. We’re going to start with a play-money version to make sure everything is working properly before we switch over to real-money transactions.
- License is in its final stages. We’re expecting to receive Stage 2 approval from the Maltese licensing authority soon, which will make our exchange fully legal and regulated.
- Thanks Karsten and Brad! I would like to extend a big thank you to Karsten Wiese and Bradley Wright for their computer skills. They have been invaluable getting Smarkets ready.
And check out our Smarkets Christmas party pics over on Flickr. Happy New Year!
