NotesBytes was registered on the 18th of October 2020 and plans were announced on Sunday the 15th of November 2020, with work initiating on Friday the 20th of November 2020. NotesBytes was also planned to be released fully on Sunday the 14th of February 2021 (marking the 13th week after the registration).
NotesBytes was founded in Manchester, GB and a trading name of StreamSort (a sole-trader company).
The initial idea was to have AI features alongside buying and selling study notes with sellers only paying for the microtransactions and the app being funded by advertisements, however this was later scrapped to the features we now serve, basic free machine learning, with sellers paying a 25% platform fee, making NotesBytes have one of the lowest fees than competitors.
Up to the release of NotesBytes, only one person (the owner) was working on the full web app including programming, designing web pages and implementing it all, using systems such as the Amazon AWS Servers.
