Providing you have a good memory, you may remember that I was on a visit to Silicon Valley at the end of April with a view to secure Radix as a technology provider for a joint venture insurance project. I'm VERY pleased to announce that this is now going ahead and that Radix is the chosen platform to underpin the solution!! Having our platform utilized by such parties prior to launch will be a huge boost for us when we launch publicly, come out of the gate swinging as it were. Unfortunately I can't state who, or what the project is as I'm under a very strict NDA, so you'll have to wait for their own announcement (which I'm hoping is soon). I'm sure though this raises a number of questions regarding Radix in general moving forward, which I'm going to answer now. Firstly over the next few months I'm going to be spending a lot of time in the valley. I've been asked to have an active role within the project to guide the development team on all things Radix, DLT and block chain. This role will consume 1/2 days per week maximum, and it is understood that I will be concentrating on Radix while I am out there. My presence is mainly a formality, as I could execute the advisory role remotely, but for convenience and efficiency it was requested that I was on hand. The opportunities available in the valley influenced my decision to agree. Radix development will not stop or slow, in fact it will accelerate due to a few reasons: 1) The components they need to develop their solution are exactly the same components we need to get to a launch. 2) There will be opportunities to utilize their team to assist me on platform development where needed. Especially if there is a common requirement for a particular component. 3) This is a paid development project, thus it will provide funding for additional team members even before we have an official fundraiser. Further benefits are of course the fact that I'm in the valley, so I can promote Radix to other tech companies out there. The parties I'll be working with also have an influential presence in the valley, so can open doors and help to get me access to relevant people. On the UK/EU side, things will be in good hands while I'm out in the US. Rob will be taking the reigns over here continuing the promotion of Radix as he has been doing excellently for almost a year now. I will of course be flying back and forth regularly as required Timelines, I'm due to be flying out at the start of June now that its all official and is expected to take around 3 months, until September, for them to get to a prototype stage where I am no longer required to be on site so much. Our own schedule at this point doesn't change, I'm still aiming for an OB and fundrasier in June (patents allowing ). I know a few guys on the forum live out on the west coast or near to, so if any fancy a meet up and a beer at some point while I'm out there, say the word!
