From Zero Users to Over a Million API Calls a Day

by Larry Chiang on May 27, 2015

By Larry Chiang
Not only do I read Women2.0, I also write there. I did a stint during my “gender reversal entrepreneurship exercises”. Like Johnny Depp, Johnny Depp and David Faustino. 
Here what I read

Women 2.0 (@women2)
From zero users to over a million API calls a day… @Catheryne_N explains how @BlockCypher did it @Medium

To quote Catheryne:

Larry Chiang (@LarryChiang)
Everything was hard-won. We hustled to get users by literally intercepting them, cold calling and pinging them constantly.

To expand Catheryne, I’m breaking down her sales advice into three hashtags about selling as a technical founder

– #CS183s (sales)
– #ENGR145s (selling right of the chasm)
– #dttdsBHM (it’s a hashtag that doesn’t even mention sales because blogging about startups doing sales is taboo)
#CS183s is a sequel to #CS183b

1 YC Startup going Bk is tragic, 1,000 is a statistic #DuckCh9Bk…

Sales is tough!! Listen to Chris do a verbal deal for a MLB baseball
Chris is a math and science genius.
