I've Made an App For a Client. Now Its Market Cap is $150 Million
How It Started
In 2018 I worked on an iOS app.
That was a social network around photo and video content, pretty much like Instagram. The only difference was that it was deeply integrated with cryptocurrency.
It had a cryptocurrency wallet right inside it, and a lot of features were deeply integrated with it.
Users could run crowdfunding and charity campaigns or sell items and use the app as an escrow. They could even sell photos and then spend that money on their account or post promotions.
Well. Even "likes" under the hood worked like transactions between users and could be converted into coins.
I've been working on it for about 1,5 years and wrote 99,9% of the iOS app. I paused any participation in it in 2019, and since that time, the app has had zero maintenance.
How It's Going
A couple of days ago, I learned that its market cap reached an incredible $150 million.
That's truly astonishing.
Of course, I was not working on it alone. Our development team consisted of 1 backend and 1 Android dev, and we also had a guy who handled cryptocurrency stuff and a CTO who looked out for the process.
Even though we add founders and everyone else involved in the project marketing, etc., and take into account that's just cryptocurrency crazy bullish market and so and so on.
But still, $150 million would be pretty much DOHUYA for such a small team.
How cool it could be if I were a stakeholder or just bought the coin when it was 1/100 from the current price. As well as Bitcoin LOL.
But even without coins, it's mind-boggling.
I just sit down and think.
I wrote some code.
Now it all costs $150 million.
