Entercard Growth; New Features Coming?

Traffic in January marked a new level for Entrecard, with unique visitors (United States only) set to break the two million mark within the next two months at the current rates. Over the past year, growth has been up between 10-50% each month, with only one month where traffic was slightly down (normal with off-site tracking).

Comparing the site to another popular blog tool, Twitter, you can see that they are both on a path to exponential growth. Although Twitter has three times the monthly traffic, it was launched a year and a half earlier (March 2006 versus Fall 2007) and was showcased dozens of time on national television.

Possible Updates/Features

The owner of Entrecard has hinted that there will be a set of new features, possibly related to the Shop, which will soon be called the 'Market.'

Some details...

– Normal fees will still apply for credits - 12.5%.
– You can sell and buy literally anything for credits.
– The 100K credit limit will likely not be in effect (unlimited buying/selling).
– There will be a protection system to ensure that you get paid/the receiver receives his/her item.
