TORONTO, ON and LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Feb 24, 2014) - Myriad Interactive Media Inc. (OTCQB: MYRY) (BERLIN: XNG), a global interactive media and development company, would like to provide a launch update on today's launch of

We have received over 21,000 requests in the first couple of hours from launch. This has brought our server (a single ec2 instance hosted on Amazon AWS) down for a short period of time," said Myriad CEO Derek Ivany.

He added, "To better handle future server load and serve our customers in the fastest way possible, we have already begun migrating DNS and CDN to CloudFlare which is the most trusted and reliable brand in protecting scaling websites. We are in the process of scaling on AWS' elastic load balancer to make system responsiveness much quicker."

About offers an opportunity for just about anyone to get involved with Bitcoin without the need to get set up on a Bitcoin exchange and having to learn trading. Our system allows users to post items for sale, free of charge or featured items for a small fee, in BTC. We plan to add additional crypto currencies to the website in the near future. Myriad developed its own proprietary Bitcoin escrow system, in-house, which allows users the comfort of having Bitcoin funds secured before a transaction is complete. Myriad charges a 1% fee in BTC for using our CryptoCafe secure escrow system. When a user makes an offer for an item for sale on the user must have available BTC in their wallet in order to make the offer. Users can top-up wallets by completing third-party transfers from Exchanges or other wallets, as well as generate unique wallet ID's with the system. In addition, CryptoCafe users can login via mobile and track notifications and message dialogue to complete transactions in person to prevent the risk of fraud. After transactions are complete, there is a feedback rating system in place in order to build profile credibility within the community. The platform is built with two-tier authentication as well as cold-storage for offline Bitcoin storage. The platform also has a real-time Bitcoin price correlation to popular currencies like EURO, GBP, USD and CAD where users can simply select the currency value they wish to receive for an item being sold and the system will automatically convert the item price into BTC and auto-adjust the price based on Bitcoin price fluctuation.

Upcoming announcement

Myriad plans to make an additional Bitcoin related announcement in the next couple of days.
