Happy 2018 to our extended Pillar family! We hope you are ready for an exciting year ahead. 🎊
Not everything you hear on the Internet about the Pillar Project is true.
The Pillar wallet platform and the Pillar token are game changers. We hope to look back at the end of this year and say we have significantly changed several games. It takes time to build a world-changing system.
We are not shipping a wallet in January. We have committed to shipping the token wallet by the end of the first quarter.
To set expectations clearly: we will ship the wallet when it has been thoroughly tested, not before. Just this week, Intel discovered a security vulnerability in their chips dating back a decade or so. One bug can bring down the Pillar Project, so we plan on very thorough testing before we release.
We are still hiring for many positions. Please see our jobs page. 👈
We are building the core wallet and interface now. We hope you’ll like what you see. We WILL give a sneak preview of the wallet interface in development at our general meeting.
Our First General Meeting on Wednesday
We will have a live online meeting on YouTube on January 10th at 5pm UK time / 12 noon EST. This meeting will last 90 minutes or so.

Then I’ll ask the group heads to report in:
☑️ David – state of the company and product.
☑️ Rob – Pillar foundation, finances, operations, etc.
☑️ Vitor – state of the code base.
☑️ Sasha – financial overall preliminary statement (with disclaimer – full audited financials will come later)
