Yes. Before 'Tipestry Go' (which lets people leave comments at any physical location and hunt for cryptocurrency around the world), we released Tipestry.com, a platform that lets people leave comments on any website and tip cryptocurrency to other users and website owners.
Augmented reality and cryptocurrency are both fairly new so they require more trials and errors to get it working right than more established technologies.
I love augmented reality games, especially since they are so new and there are so many unexplored possibilities. The biggest problem with games is that they tend to lose their novelty fairly quickly, so a new genre is always exciting, and AR is particularly exciting.
More than a year.
There are two parts to this: 1. It's not fair that users are the ones creating so much of the value and content on the web these days but aren't rewarded for it, and cryptocurrency tips and rewards are a perfect way to solve this problem. 2. It's often taken for granted that in the future there will be AR objects everywhere, but I rarely hear people ask how they will get there. You need something like 'Tipestry Go' to place those objects.
We combine AR with social media and cryptocurrency in an original and unique way. In particular I would like to highlight our Treasure Hunts, where people follow clues to search for cryptocurrency around the world, often having to work together to complete the more difficult hunts. As far as I know there's nothing else out there like it.
Soon people are going to start seeing a lot more coins, and different types of coins in the app...
