April 2015 -> ~ June 2018
- deployment of any pending services specified above
- maintenance and upgrades of the core services
- coordination for expansion of FIMKrypto domestic adoption through visibility and partnership campaigns
- driving international adoption and integration of other local cryptocurrencies with FIMKrypto system

Krypto FIN ry allocates outlay for each subproject in various phases on the go as required for successful completion. As a non-profit association, Krypto FIN ry is not obliged to produce profit on any particular subproject. (For sustainable development some projects are designed to produce profit.) It is thus expected that selected services are subsidized heavily from the initial donations amount received by the assocation from the FIMKrypto stakeholders.

Great news!
I'm looking forward to FIMK become the real convertible crypto currency so people can use it in their real life.

I've been quite busy on a few things recently and I didn't keep a close eye on the road map vs development.

How are things going for September? The month is over soon and I'm not sure that all the bullet point were covered. I'm quite interested by some of the things coming in October and hope that they don't get delayed if something this month spills over the next one...

The program is going on schedule. 2014 is the "easy one", September and October points will likely be achieved [almost] on time.

I'm very happy to hear that. I can't wait for the EUR instant conversion planned in October! That should integrate well with what we are currently working on.

"EUR asset exchange"? It would be really cool to be able to buy FIMKs directly and simply without euros, without need to buy first BTC or NXT. ASAP. :)

At the moment, nothing happening in FIMK AE, and won't be happening until the price of creating asset becomes sensible. Will that happen only after the launch of Community Client?

September 2014:

- SMS short message payment gateway ALPHA ONLINE
- mobile invoicing and SMS wallet ALPHA ONLINE
- Kryptoradio nationwide transaction broadcast begins ONLINE
- EUR asset exchange ALPHA ONLINE
- community incentives automation POSTPONED UNTIL NEW FIMK RELEASE

October 2014:

- national basic income begins for opt-in citizens POSTPONED UNTIL NEW FIMK RELEASE
- merchant gateway service with instant EUR conversion and billing IN DEVELOPMENT
- merchant incentivization program SCOUTING FOR WILLING PROMOTERS, WAITING FOR NEW RELEASE
- strong authentication of FIMK users to 3rd party service providers FINALIZING, TESTING INTEGRATION WITH NEW FIMK

November 2014:

- Community client release PREPARING MAJOR SOFTWARE UPDATE, HARD FORK REQUIRED

The new core testnet is working, requires completely overhauled client software which is approaching release condition. Basic income and strong authentication mechanisms are being polished to integrate with the new core and client functions.

The name of the client will be changed away from the project name FIMK Community Client. New name is ready and will be published with the release.

It's possible a client alpha is released on Thu Oct 9th and Basic income on Friday, if any hard obstacles come inbetween then release is pushed still one week towards mid-October.

Thanks for the update. 

From a technical point of view, this is impressive.

From a marketing point of view, I am worried.  There has been virtually no media coverage or press releases. 

As a result, interest in FIMK seems very low - only 1.5 M FIMK traded for around 6.25 BTC worth around 2000 USD on DGEX in the entire first week or so of October.  With these numbers, we are not even able to inject ongoing levels of forged FIMK into the marketplace without seeming to drop the price almost 25% - witness today's "dump".

What is your vision / plan to get large numbers of Finnish citizens to sign up for accepting free FIMK and actually using it via SMS and over-the-air blockchain transmission?  What's some of your estimates of people and times that you expect as milestones in your plan?

I understand you view FIMK as a long term project, which is fine.  But I think even you are a little surprised by how slowly this is going.  You have mentioned adjusting the monthly airdrop amounts to citizens, apparently to spark greater interest.  What's your current plan for that amount?

FIMK is a quality product.  It just seems to be a shame for FIMK to be languishing as it seems to be.
