There are 0.13943777 in Bitcoin Cash that I haven’t yet cashed out, currently valued at $60.21. They will be included in next year’s totals.
The revenue totals look good compared to last year, which came to $750.48.
Google Play recorded 923 paid installation events (those that didn’t result in an uninstallation in the first 15 minutes, which results in an automatic refund). But they show that the total number of active devices dropped from 1,040 to 803.
Based on the communication I receive from users, I think the majority get Privacy Browser from F-Droid. This is reflected in the revenue, which this year was made up by a large majority of donations versus sales.
Because the majority of the development effort is currently focused on Privacy Browser PC, there haven’t been many releases of Privacy Browser for Android this year. I would expect interest in Privacy Browser will take off once the PC version becomes available.
