The development on the prototype started as early as October 2017, since then the core team is building up strong ties with future partners for marketing, production and implementation of the BC-HMD. The core team was already able to get various real world partners involved, signing non-disclosure agreements and contracts.
The market for smart hive solutions is very competitive, therefore it is required that we do not reveal our partnerships at this time. More information will be released as soon as the BC-HMD enters its field testing phase, and the marketing campaign is ready. Rest assured that the core team will do everything in their power to drive the project forward as quickly as possible.
The BC-HMD prototype development started in late 2017. Thanks to the connections of the core team, an agreement with a developer was signed. The developer is not only an experienced 3rd generation beekeeper, but as well a scientific engineer that has been working on smart hive monitoring solutions for almost a decade.
The developer, who prefers not to disclose his real identity due to his involvement in scientific government projects, is also an expert in pesticide and parasite impacts on beehives.The developer is working on its 7th generation smart hive monitoring solution - now developing a tailored solution for the BUZZcoin Project. The device is now 90% complete and work on the blockchain and software integration can start in the near future. That will lead to a field testing in the 3rd quarter of 2018.
The core team is very excited to have such an expert working on the BC-HMD. His approach on the acoustic pattern detection engine is something that has not been seen before on the market. Such high tech requires patenting. That's why we have chosen to sign an NDA with the developer and the production company that will build the BC-HMD prototypes for field testing, as well as the production devices later on. Due to the NDA in place we are currently not allowed to release more details about the device or its features in detail.
After the successful relaunch of the BUZZcoin website the design direction and brand strategy has been refined and optimized in the last few weeks. With the release of the white paper and the roadmap, our marketing team will intensify their work on promoting BUZZcoin, BC-HMD and the BC-Hive Mind Network.
Our marketing experts team with years of experience in large scale corporations, will allow us to get BUZZcoin and its projects promoted to a new level. Getting the attention of the media, press and social media is the most important mission of our marketing team. When the BC-HMD enters the field testing phase the marketing team will release educational materials and videos about the device, creating global awareness about the diminishing worldwide bee population.
