Beta Halfway

It’s been over three months since our Private Beta officially started on February 22nd. Since then, there have been over 150 people that have joined the Beta, depositing over $250,000 in all. Those deposits have catalyzed gains of over $80,000, allowing us to continue developing the Heleum app.

Now it’s time for us to grow and give back as we near the app launch, currently scheduled for early September 2017.

Announcing today:

  • We are giving all past depositors a flat 5% bonus on their deposits, counted from the deposit date. So, whereas a $1000 deposit into Heleum one month ago would have been worth $1020 today (based on the 2% per month participating gains during the Beta), we will now count it as a $1050 deposit one month ago, resulting in over $1071 today!
  • Noting the extraordinary delay in processing ACH and wire transfers through Uphold, we will be counting all deposits based on the date they were initiated by depositors. This means that if you deposited $100 into Uphold today and it takes another 7 days before those funds are available to deposit into the Heleum Beta, we will still count the deposit date as today in our records. Yes, that means if you have a deposit pending right now, you will still get the 5% bonus mentioned above!
  • Today we are announcing a new referral contest, bigger than anything we’ve done before, running from last Monday, May 22nd until Monday, July 31st at 11:59pm Pacific Time. The person who refers the most new users in that time will receive a $5,000 prize in their Heleum balance. 5 runner-ups will also receive $1,000 each. The person who refers the greatest amount in deposits in USD value will receive a one-time bonus of 5% of the amount referred. Example: User A refers $200,000 in deposits from one or more new users. User A will receive a balance credit of $10,000.
  • To make it easier than ever to share Heleum with your friends and family, our site is now capable of generating you a referral code that you can share with anyone. By clicking on the link, the site visitor will see your name in the field “Referred by” on our Beta signup page. All current users will have their codes emailed to them today.

This is an exciting time for our company, and we’re so happy to share it with so many others. Thank you so much for your help, feedback, and support. Keep saving!
