Xbase has gotten its first paying customer!

I'm thrilled to announce that xbase has gotten its first paying customer. It took nearly two years to reach this point. Here's the pain I've endured:

  • Clashed and parted ways with my CTO co-founder, who was also my best friend
  • Began developing xbase on my own (I am a terrible dev)
  • Couldn't present at Primer Demo Day due to poor metrics
  • Lost our best developer after failing to secure the next round of funding
  • Endured a year of "When will you start earning? Just quit and find a real job" from people around me
  • Drained our runway and all my savings
  • Tried to extend our runway by pivoting xbase to a paid only but faced a 0% conversion rate for two months, leading to a total dropout of our free user base.
  • In 2023, I suffered from insomnia, had tonsillitis three times, and visited the dermatologist every two weeks due to stress-related psoriasis.

This small revenue feels like a reward for all the tough times I've been through. If I hadn't seen the perseverance of indie makers on Twitter like @marc_louvion and @pwang_szn, I would have given up long ago. I hope my small achievement can inspire others. Wishing all makers a Happy New Year! P.S. A huge shout-out to @deepjyoti30_tw. I wouldn't have made it this far without you. I'm really grateful to have you on the team. Let's keep the momentum going!๐Ÿ„โ€โ™‚๏ธ
