from kiboplatform slack:
kiboadmin: Friends, we understand that you want a fast launch as much as we do. But at the moment there are still problems to solve and it will take time. Before the New Year, we have repeatedly written that the launch is planned for the 1st quarter of 2017. Many teams with whom we work just today turned on working mode, right after the holidays. Since the New Year holidays season is long all around the world.
So what the team is working on right now? The main task that remains for us to solve before the launch of beta version is work related to the contract. Before the New Year the contract was audited, after what a number of changes have been made. Now we’ve completed that work and after holidays started the final testing; the final audit will be carried out in the near future. If all goes well, then we will begin to prepare the platform for the launch. Other tasks, including the ones that were specified in the road map, also implemented. Correct work of the contract is the most important thing that we need to launch.
We can’t tell the exact date of the official launch, because it depends on the results of final audit. But as we said earlier, we plan to complete all the work and launch the platform, tentatively in late February - early March. We hope that we will be able to announce an exact date at the beginning of February. We also believe that by the end of this month, we will be able publicly publish results of our work.
Friends please be a little more patience; we're going according to our plan and at to date don’t go beyond timeframes that we've announced as part of the ICO. I think that we will meet that timeframe.
