Hi everyone!!!! I'm the founder of Gracias. We're a mission-driven company working to make crypto more accessible and fun for people who are non-technical. Our goal is to create a social onramp for the crypto economy, so that everyone can learn about this new money, and have the opportunity to join the party. This version of the app is very much a pilot. Our eventual goal is to transition to a DApp environment, though we want to see first if there is an appetite for this type of product within the communities that we're looking to serve. For now though, the wallet is custodial, transactions are offchain and we're limiting this to a very small number of users to test out. All that said! If you sign up using the promo code ' HI ' you can receive $5 in free Bitcoin, as well as $2 for every user that you successfully refer to the app. We're particularly interested in reaching total Bitcoin newbies with this pilot, so please share with these people in your life! PLEASE GIVE FEEDBACK! The good, the bad, the ugly - we want it all!

"[Gracias] wants to see [Bitcoin] more evenly distributed amongst people who are non-technical or who come from underrepresented communities in tech and finance"...... As long as these people have iPhones. Considering the fact that the majority of smartphone owners have Android phones, I'd bet that the vast majority of people "who come from underrepresented communities" would have Android phones. You claim you want to democratize Bitcoin, but you only offer your services to owners of (usually very expensive) iPhones :)

@anna_0x This is SUCH fair criticism and something I've personally been grappling with a lot. So, we've been working hard on a solve and I'm excited to say that our Android build will be out this week!!

@kevint_o_m_a_s Hi!! Yes for this pilot, we're custodial. Though it is my hope to get to non-custodial as quickly as possible. We're planning our roadmap now and my hope is that we can transition within a few months time.
