It seems unbelieveable: little ALYS has been existing for a year now! We chose her date of birth according to the day of the revelation of her design. In October 2012 Drak-pa launched the project, which did not look at all like what we have now. We are working together since early 2013 to get this fascinating project moving forward!
Path has not always been simple. We have discovered the realities of such initiative: creating a company, supervising stocks, funds, and a lot of unfunny things which you can imagine. :3. But all of this made it possible for us to overcome a lot of limits, which led us to do our best, as we could. We are very happy of what ALYS has become today, and we are more than happy to have such an amazing community around her.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALYS !
