New to empowr?

Hello empowr citizens,

First and foremost, I’d like to thank Carlos for all the sacrifices, hard work and results from his time here at empowr. In the short period that he was here, he set in motion some incredible items that I am confident will be improving everyone’s experience for many years to come.

As a result of those items, I’m confident this year (2019) might just be the most progressive one yet for empowr.

With that said, I understand that there are several challenges that each of you are facing at the moment and we are also eager to get the marketplace moving at a much faster pace. I’m working with the empowr engineering team to get those live to you as quickly as possible.

Specifically, we have been working on the following:

 

1) Removing the limits on bidding in the marketplace

This has blocked many of you from hitting your Daily Goals over the past few days and should now be resolved. Please check and let me know, in the comments below, if it has been resolved.

 

2) Updating your balances to reflect the correct calculations

Your balance at the top of every page now correctly matches your balance on the balance details page.

For those of you with pending marketplace sales both before and after the January 3rd coin stabilization process, those amounts are still in your balance, but are currently not being shown.

As those transactions are marked “item received” they will be added to your Legacy coin balance if the sale occurred before Jan 3rd, and to your maturing balance if the sale was made after January 3rd.

 

3) Updating tracking for your trading bonus

After the launch of the new DDEX.io exchange a few weeks ago, our system needed to be updated to correctly notice and provide bonuses for trading.

This has now been corrected; and all ‘buy’ and ‘sell’ trades and being awarded the trading bonus.

Additionally, all ‘buy’ trade bonuses are now being accelerated to your Coin Savings Vault.

 

4) New technical infrastructure

After the resolution of any remaining issues from the coin stabilization process are behind us, and especially after the launch of the new ‘Buy’ listings, we expect the volume of marketplace sales to grow exponentially. Therefore, we are excited to get this new ‘Buy’ listing feature to you as quickly as possible.

However, first, we need to take a few steps backwards before going forward, as far as our technical infrastructure is concerned.

Thanks to the new coin stabilization feature that just launched, the number of computer servers required to operate empowr has skyrocketed into the thousands. Add to that the expected traffic increases in 2019, and a lot will be added to empowr’s operating costs, all of which of course would need to be passed on to empowr citizens since empowr does not allow investors to participate.

Therefore, instead of passing on these increased costs to our community, our engineers are convinced they can rearchitect much of our core systems and actually end up with lower costs than before the coin stabilization process was launched.

As a result, we now do not expect to have higher costs after this new process is complete, however the process will take our engineers a few weeks to complete. That means that, over that time period, you can expect less or no new features, big fixes, etc.

The bottom line is that we need to slow down for a few weeks before moving forward again.

Other than ending up with lower costs, here is the other good news:

In parallel to this big infrastructure process, we’re currently adding many more engineers to our team. All the new team members will start by the end of January or mid-February at the latest.

By the end of February, we will have 3 times the number of engineers on staff!

The result will be that, finally, we’ll be able to move at 3 times the pace as before.

Not only will bugs be fixed at a much faster pace but now, but we’ll be able to get you new functionality (such as the local merchant and app platforms) as well as bring many of your other ideas to life much, much faster.

And this is why I want to reiterate again our special thanks to Carlos. Thanks to all the above initiatives, he has set us up for an incredible 2019...  specifically:

 

·         With the arrival of the new ‘Buy’ listings, we expect that all citizens will be able to get exactly what they want from the marketplace in record time.

 

·         And sellers will be able to get the profits they deserve – and thanks to the coin stabilization process that has now launched, they can do that without uncertainty from coin price fluctuations.

 

·         And finally, ‘fake sellers’ will almost completely be a thing of ancient history in empowr.

The end result will be that empowr will be a great place for anyone to sign up, do the same things they do on other social media platforms ( = post and share) and be rewarded with nearly everything (products - and soon services) that a person could want.

And as citizens become more experienced, they’ll also be able to cash out to their local currency, by becoming sellers or success coaches.

All of that means an amazing 2019 for everyone – which is so great given how hard everyone has worked – citizens, success coaches and employees -- and how everyone has sacrificed to create this opportunity for the people of the world.

And so apologies in advance for any issues that comes up in the next few weeks, as we dig in and work to lower the cost of our technical infrastructure. To be clear, this is a big undertaking, so there will be issues but, one after another, we will fix them until you all say that everything is working to your satisfaction.

 

Presidential election

Losing Carlos is a big loss for this community, I am sure of that.

But as Carlos has made clear, we must look to the future, not to the past. We each blow, we must pick ourselves up again, and move forward again. The alternative to that is not acceptable. 

Therefore, I think we should focus on the next presidential election happening this summer. We suggest waiting until then so that empowr can have the resources to pay for the legal process of getting a special visa, in case a non-US citizen wins the election.

More details will be coming in the near future.

In the meantime, if there’s anything I can do to help, I’ll do my best to make it happen.


Brian

Hi Mohammed,
1) I'm not sure what your issue is with bidding, because I can see from your account that you can indeed bid.
2) I will have someone follow-up with you and see what is happening with your balance

Hi Brian. Thank you for your update. I confirm that the balance at the top of any page is showing the correct amount.
I am sure that the planning we've worked together will go forward and benefit the whole community. I am confident that the path is set and will be implemented. For an active seller like myself, the "wanted" listings will definitely give me a new tool to sell more and earn more. Keep the good work!

Hi Brian,

Welcome Back!!... Yes Carlos Was Awesome, And It Seams To Me More Than Fair...That Visum Issues Should Be Clear Before Someone Like Carlos Who Left Is Whole Life Behind In Portugal, And Now Has To Get Back There!!

Will It Be A Live Stream Tomorrow?... Because Like Many Citizens, I Have Suffer From Big Time Issues, Especially With My Listings STILL NOT Showing At My "I M Selling Page".... And All My Sellings AFTER the New Update, Are Pending&Cancelled!!...

I Didnt Get My Coins In My Shopping Balance&Cash Advance, From Anything>> Not From The Wheel Grand Price (1200USD), Not From My Trading, And Even Not From My Items "Marked Receveived....(I Did Get The Mission Points).

My Shopping Balance Is Today 100 USD!!..And My Cash Advance Is 27 Cent Of A Dollard, This Can"t Be Right... I Hope... I Like To Know, If All Of This Will Be Very Soon Resolved.

Please Take A Look To My Whole Account.
Thanks.

Brian,
Welcome back to the front line,
Unless we incorporate recognized Merchants and Famous Brands in the Marketplace, so we can attract more buyers to visit the platform more than once and retain them in empowr. So, in simple words supply real and excellent products (not fake) in the platform by providing guarantees for both buyers and sellers will creates higher demands if we reach this point the coin will move up, and then we can claim success and not before reaching this.

Good luck

Good day,
There is no comments about restoring the balance of my External Wallets to reflect the same balance as it was before the coin stabilization roll-out. The balances in my External Wallets are currently ZERO, and I want my balances back, please.

Brian C Woosley

Hi Lourens,
Not sure I understand? Your external wallet is your personal Ether wallet. If the amount is showing as zero, then perhaps you need to click on the link and refresh your balance, or you don't have anything in your Ether wallet to begin with?

Welcome back Brian! Thank you for this important update and especially getting more engineers.
This will mean everything faster for sure! What happened to the over 1 trillion shopping money I had? The balance there is
now zero. This means that I can't buy and effectively then sell. I was top of the leader board for days (South Africa) and have shot down to number 3 now due to not being able to buy/sell. Could you please let us know about the shopping money issue as it is important for coin growth to keep the marketplace active. There are many others with the same problem.

Brian C Woosley

Hi Jenni,
Hopefully this explanation from an announcement a few days ago answers your question:

The coin stabilization process was completed on January 3rd at 8:30PM PST.
Here are the changes that were made:
1) As of January 3rd at 8:30PM PST, going forward each time you earn coins, the value of those coins (in local currency at the moment you earned them) will remain stable in your balance.

2) In regards to coins before January 3rd: Based on the coin price (in local currency) at the time of the launch of the new code, the value of your coin balances (maturing/matured, legacy and founder) was locked in so that from that point forward they would retain the same value regardless of the movement of the empowr coin.

That means, that if you are viewing your balance in empowr coins, you’ll notice the number of coins that you have increase or decrease as the price changes. However, if you are viewing your balance in another currency (like U.S. Dollars) the amount will stay the same.

3) Given that this new functionality was launched on January 3rd, the cash advance and ‘available to shop in the marketplace’ limits were reset on January 3rd at 8:30PM PST.

Going forward from Jan 3, as you hit your Daily Goal and sell new items in the marketplace, those limits will increase as normally expected.

Hi Brian - Thank you for the update. Can you clarify this for me? "1) Removing the limits on bidding in the marketplace". Are you talking about "lowering" the total bids that we need each day or "eliminating" mandatory bidding for now so that we can hit our goals? I can't bid hardly at all because I no longer have the funds in my account to bid with. Thanks.

Brian C Woosley

Hi Jeff - I'm referring to how it sounds like yourself and others had been unable to use Pay Now 0 to bid on things. This should now be resolved. You don't need funds in your account to bid as long as you qualify for Pay Now 0.
