BOOM! We just hit 5k users in less than a month 💥

Friend Theory family is growing and we can only express our excitement with one word: WOW. Traveling for free is becoming a reality!

A few weeks ago we published a short post about how the Friend Theory launch went, more specifically about how all of you guys sent our servers into meltdown (thanks for that again guys 😉). Today, we want to show our gratitude for the constant support and encouragement we’ve been receiving from you.

Launch events normally carry one very big problem: they just create a short ‘spike’ in your traffic. They’re usually over-hyped and after a few days, everything goes down to where it was. We came to terms this was going to happen as it’s pretty much a norm in the tech scene… but we’re safe to say our 1st one went better than expected.

It’s been amazing to see how our pioneer users (like you) have started expanding their networks by sharing the friend theory link across their whole network, going places we would never have imagined reaching: from Iceland to Iran or from France to Peru – Friend Theory users are now spread across 116 countries all around the world, and we can’t wait to have them in every single country very soon (North Korea, we’re coming for you too!). In fact, we’ve already had completed stays from some of our users, in cities like Sydney, LA and Amsterdam ✌️(yew!!)

We also want to show our gratitude to the institutions that reached out to us, showing their passion to what we are doing – getting into talks with some of the most well-known lifestyle and tech media companies in the country, about the project you’re helping build! It’s definitely a dream come true, and we feel extremely grateful about it. It seems like we’re not the only ones who dream about travel for free!

Last but not least, we want to make a special shout out to everyone who has taken the time to show their interest in being part of the project. We received tonnes of application (or more like appreciation) letters and messages of support. The Friend Theory team is also growing, so do not hesitate to keep showing your love and interest in being part of this special movement.

Next milestone: 10k users 😉 We can manage it by only inviting one friend each… Are you guys ready for the challenge?

Ready, set…GO! 👉 Friend Theory ❤️
