Over the next few weeks AppleByte will be changing its name to ArtByte.
We feel the new name better describes our worldwide purpose, and in fact we bought the domain names for ArtByte when we launched AppleByte.
AppleByte is headquartered in NYC. The name AppleByte was a play on the old saying, "Come to New York and take a bite out of the Big Apple". However, AppleByte has grown considerably and has artists around the world, with a social media following of over 78,000 users. Outside the US, the meaning of the name AppleByte is not as clear.
The trading symbol "ABY" will remain the same.

Our Launch Plan & Philosophy
Dev Team was paid in Bitcoin (funded through our Crowd Funding Campaign), not premine. You can verify that here: Indiegogo Campaign
We want to encourage the user community (defined as the artists & art lovers of NYC, as well as the miners) by giving them the opportunity to mine, before the whales jump in.
Therefore we are only releasing the MAC & Windows wallets at launch. The source code will not be released for 6 - 12 months, as the vast majority of the whales run linux.
We will have one official pool server.
The wallet has a built-in tab for solo & pool mining.Technical Specification
