This is pretty big news, as far as I’m concerned.
I’ve used Mycelium since I first got into bitcoin, and always loved their service.
They’re running a crowdfunding campaign, as I saw when I opened my wallet to check the btc value this morning, to raise funds to develop their next gen wallet, which does sound rather funky. I might post some of the relevant stuff here in a bit, but the bots which stood out to me were multi coin support, coloured coin support (not sure which implementation(s) and greater in app fiat/crypto exchange possibilities.
There are, however, some issues, which, in my opinion, may force them to delay and rethink this project.
They’re making the crowdfund = 5% of their companies net worth. However, they haven’t set a fixed target value or price per share of that 5%, so until the crowd sale is over, you won’t know what tiny minuscule percentage of the company you own.
They’ve also not really done their homework in regard to their potential revenue, and can’t offer any specific projections about the potential return on whatever your % stake in their company is.
I love Mycelium, and I love what they’re planning on doing, however, I’m not convinced at this time that they’ve thought through their crowd sale properly. I’m going to have a proper read of the bitcoin talk and reddit threads in a minute to see what other information can be gleaned.
