the year 2018 is coming to an end and on behalf of Bitrad.io, I would like to say thank you for the confidence and the use of our page Bitrad.io.
A very special thanks to all admins. Without you, operating a site like Bitrad.io would not be possible. Thank you for the many hours you helped other users and answered questions.
I would like to use this post to tell you what exactly we intend to do in 2019. What are the goals for 2019?
- new wallet
We will completely revise the wallet code to provide a much more stable wallet software. New wallet design and new code.
We are already working on this and are making good progress, so I'm sure we will make this New Wallet available in 2019. If all goes well in the first half of 2019. (current assumption)
- Android Radio Player
In Q1 2019 we will make the new player available for all Android devices. Then next to iOS we also have Android as a radio player.
With these versions, we can reach over 96% of all smartphone users.
- Content (new radio stations and revision of current channels)
In Q1 2019 we will provide a possibility for users to add new channels to our database and to edit current channels.
At the end of 2019, we would like to make a large number of channels available for you all.
With the help of the community, we can become the largest radio station platform in the world by 2019.
However, here we need the help of users to make this possible. Our goal is to be the portal with the most stations worldwide by the end of 2019. (not by users using it but by content)
- New exchanges
In 2019, we will offer more opportunities to trade BRO. Further stock exchanges will follow.
- New front-end design
For the Q4 2019, we would like to introduce a new responsive design for the website Bitrad.io. Complete revision of the frontend.
Furthermore, we still have one or the other new feature that we want to test.
Thank you all for the great and successful year 2018. And I'm looking forward to an even more successful year 2019. We are here to stay and become the largest radio site in the world. That's our goal. We do our best to reach this goal.
With you as a community, we can achieve this.
THANK YOU ALL.
NEW FEATURE: BRO Mining now LIVE
Written by Uwe on 26.12.2018.
today we have a new feature for you all. As you know we still work on the Android version and are very close to the release.
We decided to create a new feature before we release the Android app. We now have our own Mining Pool for BRO. HYPE!! :D
BRO is a POS (Proof of Stake Coin) so we cant mine BRO directly. But what we can do is mining other coins, convert these earnings into BRO und buyback BRO from the earning.
With this feature, we are able to create buying Power on the BRO token and this will also help the price of BRO to grow to a higher level.
If you have mining equipment like Asics or just a graphics card, from now on you are able to earn even more BRO with Mining.
This node is up 24/7 and will get staking rewards. You are able to buy a share like you know it from Masternodes. We will add 50.000 Shares to the market and you can buy shares and earn more BRO if you want. We will also add more Staking nodes if there is demand for it. We will do monthly payouts to the owner of the shares.
We will also post some exiting news next week. Yes there are some news about the Android App. More soon.
Have a nice day.

Issue on Dice.Bitrad.io
Written by WlanWerner on 28.10.2018.
we have to fix an issue with the client (BRO Client) of the dice.Bitrad.io Website.
At the moment the wallet.dat of this client uses a huge amount of CPU and RAM. We have to change something on the client and Website to fix this.
We will work on thin the next day. It is not so simple to fix it so it takes a little bit longer.
***UPDATE*** We completed this task
Bitradio Weekley Challenges #1
Written by WlanWerner on 21.10.2018.
we have a new challenge type for you.
In this picture we hid a BRO Private Key with 300 BRO. We will let the funds on it one week, during this time you can try to solve the 'puzzle' and get 300 BRO. If nobody finds the private key we will add the BRO to the challenge next week. To make it more easy we will give a hint every 24hours.
The address is BjRwJegn2dXcP1JR3CSqyPkNgGKP4vTSxA, you can check it on the explorer if sb found it yet.
How to check the Privatekey?
go to your wallet -> Debug console
and enter importprivkey . If you get an error message the key is wrong, if you get no message it's probably right.
I hope you enjoy it

Bitrad.io - Update Oktober
Written by WlanWerner on 14.10.2018.
today I want to inform you about the things we made in September until now.
1. New Feature News
At the moment we don’t have a single point for users to inform them about the news we have. Some users are only on Telegram, some are following us via Twitter and other go to our Forum.
A lot of users don’t know if we implement something new or have news for you (Example payout engine is not working) Dice down etc.
We can't and don't want to inform you via email because nobody likes a lot of emails. So we have to implement a feature to the website where users which want actual news will get them.
This Weekend we will implement a News page on Bitrad.io. Every user can have a look at it an get the latest news.
-> We will also inform you if we have updated some stations or added some stations.
-> We want to keep you informed when we have issues or bugs on the Website.
-> Users see the news on our site and don’t have to switch to different channels to get information
This was a big issue in the past and we fix this lag of information this weekend.
Our Winners of the Premium account receive the win today. The Lottery for the BRO 25, 50, and 100 get determined on Sunday 14.10.2018 18 UTC 20 CET
I want to apologize for the delay. If you want to join our Livestream you can watch it here:
Please Follow us if you have a Twitch Account:
We will give away a maximum 100 x 5 BRO for users which are online in the stream. Every user can only get 5 BRO one time. You have to be able to send us a Message in the twitch chat to get BRO.
We do these giveaways during the stream. So be online BEFORE we start with the lottery.
Sunday 14.10.2018 from 15 UTC 17 UTC 100 x 5 BRO giveaway
Sunday 14.10.2018 18 UTC 20 CET -> Choosing Winners of 25, 50 and 100 BRO
3. IOS Promo
Every user which is downloading the iOS App, start it and listen to radio will get a special Bonus paid in BRO.
We will add this Promo in a different post where users can post their User ID. At the end of the year, we will payout the BROs.
This is one Idea to get more Users on our Free iOS App. So if you have an iOS Device download our free app here. And you are able to join this Promo.
Detailed information will follow. We have app-. 4000 ìOS Downloads at the moment. One of our competitors already has 28 million downloads. It's a big market we can grow into.
And Android is also in the Pipeline.
4. Master nodes Shares
We fixed the issues we had with master nodes. We created a script which is checking every minute if the master node is up and running. If a master node (our 40 shared master nodes) is going down for some reason, the script is restating it immediately. We also plan to do automatic payouts for the master nodes so there will not be a delay anymore. We plan to do these automated payouts every week. But let us check if it is possible without issues. We plan to roll out this feature in Q1 2019.
We will also add some New Master nodes in Q4 2018 and Q1 2019
We also have created a Roadmap for the next months and I want to share it with you. This is a living roadmap. A plan. Not sure if we can make it in this time.
But for now, we think we can make it. Thanks a lot to WlanWerner for this.
Today we have over 210,000 registered users. Over 20,000 users use our site on a monthly basis. We are sure that we will grow significantly in the year 2019, as the majority of our users have "only" found us through forums such as Bitcointalk and other Crypto sites.
By expanding the content (more radio stations and a faster updating of the channels) we are listed higher in search engines and reach so many more users. For this step, however, it was necessary to offer the pages in several languages. This feature is now successfully implemented. Additional Languages are also planned for 2019.
We will develop a feature where users can add new channels, update channels. We want to be the Website with the most listed radio stations. (Worldwide), I know this is a huge step. But with this userbase we can reach this goal very fast and i think maybe within a year.
Users receive BRO for this task. How exactly the distribution and how many additional BRO will be distributed to the users who help us to update and add stations will be announced. We will not lower the payout rate for listeners. No additional coins are generated. We will either repurchase coins or pay out part of the remaining 5 million coins to the users, who help us to create the largest radio database worldwide.
We will also use an API from Shoutcast to add more functional channels to our website. Update station logos and add descriptions to the stations. For this, we need users from November onwards who want to help build the largest radio station database in the world. We will inform you when this feature is available and how you can help if you want. If you have ideas about how we should distribute the coins. How can this work? Wich functions you need for this. Please let us know and post it in the comments.
We have invested a lot of money to protect the name Bitradio. This step is important for the future in order to be able to take legal action against the use of the Bitradio brand. This also applies, for example, to domain names with the name BITRADIO. I know that this step will not help to increase the price of BRO. I just want to show you that we are here and will stay here and are far away from being another dead crypto project.
We have successfully protected the Word BITRADIO in the following countries:
If you want to check it:
(Type in the Word BITRADIO)
Have a nice weekend and I hope you join our Livestream on Sunday.
News feature is online now.
Written by Uwe on 13.10.2018.
as mentioned yesterday in our announcement we build this new Feature to keep you up to date.
Have a nice Weekend and I hope is see you tomorrow LIVE on Twitch.
