Dear friends, family & the Bountie community,
Let me begin with a personal story. Most of my early days were spent playing hours of video games. The community around me never failed to remind me that "You cannot make living playing video games". So, I did what every other young adult would do - I studied hard and went on to earn my degree and pursued upon a successful career path.
However, gaming never stopped being a part of my life. Whether it was sneaking into a cyber cafe after school for a few games of Warcraft III or even squeezing in a few games of candy crush during work/between meetings. Nonetheless, the haunting theme from my past prevailed, which was any time spent gaming was time wasted.
Which brings us to Bountie. I envisioned a platform that would empower like-minded people an opportunity to do what I love for a living and also provide a lifestyle for gamers. A world where people have the option I did not have, I only hoped others will believe in this vision.
The responses to my idea were overwhelming, much to my surprise, during the private sale stage. Our expectations as a team have by far been exceeded, which we are eternally grateful for. However, it has also added more pressure than possible. Pressure to perform, the pressure to succeed, and pressure to sustain.
Rising up to the challenge and responsibilities, we had to take a step back and prioritize what was important. The answer to that was easy - You. You guys made all of this possible. You are who we want to serve. We want to provide you with a safe, secure, and sustainable solution to my childhood problem. To achieve that we had to take a small step back.
As a team, we have decided to redesign the initial coin that we were offering to our early investors so that we can offer a more customized, reliable, and stable Bountie coin. Ultimately this enhances the features of our ERC20 token in collaboration with the experts in the blockchain ecosystem.
We wanted to do all of this not just for us, but for you. Unfortunately, this process means a slight delay in our timelines. We have decided to push back our Pre-ICO to 29th of April, Ultimately, this decision was made with the interest of the company and our customers first in the long run. I promise you that this decision is for the best, and hope you hang tight and continue to support us. Bountie promises to bring something truly revolutionary and be a true lifestyle for generations to come.
