On the Kitely Forums there is some updated details about the plan for the Kitely Marketplace which has been planned for many months. According to Ilan Tochner who is the Co-Founder and CEO of Kitely there should be a merchant control panel which should be available to Kitely users to start creating in April 2013. This now gives Kitely merchants more time in setting up their shops before the official opening.
The Kitely Marketplace will be open officially for business in June 2013 which is a month later than planned. The month delay is due to the recent transfer stations work and infrastructure work that effects performance and sociability on the Kitely grid.
Check out a new interview about Kitely on Wired this week called Virtual Worlds – Kitely is a Keen Replacement For Second Life which is worth reading through.
