“People overwhelmingly prefer mobile apps over the browser experience: the time spent in apps now surpasses the time spent in browsers. However, there is currently no efficient mechanism in place for discovery or distribution for real money apps the way that there is for every other app category, “ said David Chang, founder and CEO of Betcade. “Betcade will also streamline the download, install, and updating of apps and remove payment friction resulting in an improved user experience.“
Mobile and technology visionary Trevor Fiatal, former co-founder, CTO, and CSO of SEVEN Networks, joins Betcade as Chief Technology Officer.
“I’ve spent the last several years advising and consulting with early-stage startups, but it wasn’t until Betcade came along that I felt the urge to join the founding team” said Trevor Fiatal, Betcade CTO. “This is a remarkable opportunity to conquer some unique challenges and create an entire ecosystem, and I’m excited to join the Betcade team on this adventure.”
