2013 has been a fast-paced and exciting year for Murfie!
We kicked off the year with a move (down the block) to larger, better digs at 7 North Pinckney Street. Ordinarily, moving an office of software developers one block is pretty straightforward, but Murfie had the added challenge of safely moving our valuable inventory.
We also became the first major music marketplace to accept Bitcoin, the growing digital currency, as payment. This year weâ€™ve seen a growing amount of international interest in our service (e.g. Canada, Germany, and Australia), and have added PayPal as a payment option to accommodate purchases for those members.
Other great feature additions to the site have been our rip-to-hard-drive service, our Wishlist feature with Autobuy, Cool Collections of themed albums in the marketplace, and our Unpurchase feature, which allows members to buy, stream, and return any album within 24 hours.
Heading into 2014, Murfie is gearing up to add vinyl records to our service. With the same framework as our CD service, members can send their vinyl records from home to be ripped, downloaded and streamed, and either stored or returned to them. 2014 is looking to be another great year.
