What does Glint Beta mean?

Glint is currently in beta release. This is the first time that Glint has been made available outside of our team and in order to closely manage the quality of our overall service, we’ll be releasing our features gradually.

Help us to get better

In Glint, we’ve taken care to design a product we think you will love, but no one knows your needs as well as you. So we’d really value your help testing and shaping the future features of Glint and the Global Currency.

Candid feedback from users like you will help us smooth out our beta version and make sure Glint functions brilliantly. We know your time is precious, but if you have something to say about Glint, now is the perfect time to say it.
