I guess testing will always be going on as more and more features are prepared and added to the platform.

I hesitate to say this, but I guess one of the possibilities is that it is now ready for a particular customer to do final preparations for it's launch!!
The detail of what comes next and how it will be achieved is all frustratingly uncertain, but the longer the lack of prelaunch publicity goes on, the more curious it becomes.

I can’t find my notes from SE but from memory the paywall was to go live mid March, so possibly the early access for non testers is to cough up to test the paywall?

I assume they won’t just switch it on for launch

Unless the ramped up testing has started and they have not announced it or managed to keep it completely quiet - I can't see a Q1 launch.

Monday would give them 5 weeks maximum of such testing.

Given the period since initial testing - that seems too skinny to me.

That or they don't really think they need any more testing.

Not long to go, bet it feels like the longest 6 weeks ever. Hoping for one more top up before launch

Maximum 6 Cowboy Boot Fridays before launch

More likely 5 given the sixth is last day of March

Pre arranged share transfer. Then again a few of those look like rollovers which would not impact the price.

salmon1 - obviously following the double-entry bookkeeping principles to the letter. For every debit there must be a credit, if my memory from O-Level Accounts serves me right?

Miraculous MM managing volume of 2,440,669 share so far today and not any move at all in the share price! Takes some doing I would have thought!!

HB.

Good point.

So outright Buys at 7 then.

I can’t get a fixed quote for even 1k today to Buy.

Mind you it’s a U.S holiday today, so that might be why.

In my experience, B&I's are always done at the lowest sell price so as to transfer the largest number of shares into the ISA.

The 2 x 281,482 shares def like B&I's but not the 500k, as too big for ISA allowance.

I think the 2 x 500k, 350k and 250k at 7 are all Buys.

Something cooking?

Unless they are all bed & isa and they will release the other side later, to confuse everyone.

Yeah in between the buy and sell price too. Would have said bed and ISA but they he 100k looks like a sell. Not sure on the other 2

I bought two lots of 70k at marginally over 7p.

So, these larger trades going through at 7p which are marked up as sells are in fact buys imo.

Thank you very much for that, I appreciate your insight and openness.
In the recent past I too had a crash and burn investment.
I chose two companies at the same time to invest in. The largest investment went into an AIM firm of lawyers called Ince with a turnover of £100 million. It seemed dynamic in the way it was attempting to grow in the marketplace of legal companies and I thought being a firm of lawyers they would be a conservative safe bet. Blackbird was my much more speculative buy, and so I invested on a smaller scale.
Ince shot up from around 30p to 80p, but then company problems surfaced. The MD gave reassuring information at the Investor Meets Company presentations and even declared he was reintroducing a dividend due to improved financial performance.
Things went from bad to worse at at 15p I decided it would crash, so I offloaded everything and switched all the money into additional Blackbird shares also at 15p because I was feeling that Blackbird was going to do well with Enterprise. That may still happen but I feel very fortunate that elevate.io has appeared on the scene! Ince did crash, the remnants were taken over, and the company that bought what was left has now also crashed!
I was naive in believing a solicitor would not lie to shareholders. I discussed this point with a retired solicitor and he said words to the effect of "It is the 92% of solicitors who aren't straight who give the rest of us a bad name!" A very expensive lesson!!

Salmon9 If you haven’t already read it I would add The Art of Execution, it and Investing Through the Looking Glass (written by Tim Price, himself a fund manager) are both essential reading for any investor imo. As one of the famous successful investors said “If you want to stand out from the crowd you have to do something different from the crowd”, or words to that effect. There are lots of investing games to play but the biggest obstacle in all of them is ourselves and our human biases. Blackbird is one of two moonshots I still have in play, the other is on life support, there are also several moonshots that have crashed and burned. So Blackbird is also the last roll of the dice for me and will be the last pre profit company I ever invest in.

Thank you for recommending "Investing through the looking glass". Based on your recommendation, I will read it, and I acknowledge the wisdom of the very calculated approach to investing. If you are an investment professional, it probably has to be that way, and if you are an amateur investor then you would be well advised to be as calculated and objective as possible.
My situation is that I have spent my life breaking the mould and thoughtfully defying convention, searching for a better innovative way, and at this stage in my life I was drawn to Blackbird by business logic, but also by the excitement I felt when I read about what they had created. That led to my investment being significantly intuitive.
So I am where I am, with fingers crossed. For me this is the last roll of the dice!!
