Hey guys,

We just launched a beta version of our web app: https://vicuco.com

We collect data from top exchangers and provide users with an overall average rate. Data collection is done every 10 minutes.

In addition to this, we allow users to "get the best rate" at any moment in time, in 5 foreign currencies.

We also feature a ticker API that developers can use if they so wish.

Please remember that this app is still in beta, so any and all feedback is greatly appreciated. We wish to hopefully target the "non-techy" market, allowing for people who have no previous knowledge about bitcoin and virtual currencies in general, to get started with the concept.

Thanks for the feedback.

We plan on adding a lot of other foreign currencies soon. We just launched today so everything is in BETA. Once we get user feedback, we will hopefully make it more robust and professional.

This is a beautifully designed website and it has more potentials because you can get real time foreign currencies rates though such website exist before but your own will be more unique if you can include translations to other languages. Good job.

Thank you for the feedback. Version 1 of our site was offered in Chinese and Russian as well. We are working on localizing our content for version 2 as well.

Nice effort and beautifully designed charting graphics, why not try to monetize it with some ads?

Thank you for the feedback.

We don't want to display ads yet because we can't think of a non intrusive way of showing them. Right now, our main goal is to get users; people who will use our website regularly. If things take off, we will begin working on the next version, along with a mobile app for iOS and Android.

Our goal here is simplicity. Bitcoin and virtual currency seem very intimidating, so we are hoping to change that.

I agreed with you perhaps when you have more audience like bitcoinwisdom you might introduce premium members version.

For sure, we will definitely keep it in mind.

We're hoping to gain some traction with this version as a short term goal, so if you like our concept, feel free to share our web app with other like minded people. The more feedback we get the better.

I imagine you intend on including additional exchanges eventually?

What about other coins?

Yep. This is just the beta. We need more sources in order for us to truly represent the current market.

As for other currencies, we hope to have as many foreign currencies as viable.

As for virtual currencies, we might only stick to a few top ones. It doesn't make sense to include smaller virtual currencies at this point.
