Even though the concept of a hybrid coin is excellent, the Creditbit team feels developers failed to port most important projects to their coins because of the technical differences between protocols which made it really difficult. They prepared a road map that focused mostly on usability of Creditbit, most of their development focused about porting important projects to achieve that.
Now that Creditbit is ready for adoption with most important project already ported, their road map has changed to focus on:
Marketing and social engaging : Top priority in the second road-map, engaging with exchanges/investors/community
Getting as much services as possible : Creditbit Dev-team will work on getting as much services and projects to work with creditbit as possible, we will look at all projects that will help the growth and give more value to Creditbit and commit to work on them
Getting as many developers : They welcome anyone that is prepared to contribute and commit to the project, this will assure decentralization of development and obviously transparency
Continuous development and Innovation : When the achieve the 3 points above they will start working on projects that make Creditbit more unique, zerocoin features are one of these things
To achieve their goals the community needs to get involved, if not in promoting the use and development then in donating for the project, as you know Creditbit was launched without any pre-mine or instamine, their main income is the collected fees from the Official Pool.

Creditbit is an open source software project released under the MIT/X11 license which gives you the power to run, modify, and copy the software and to distribute, at your option, modified copies of the software. The software is released in a transparent process that allows for independent verification of binaries and their corresponding source code.
There are no borders, no conversion fees, no delays, no centralized control. Every machine that mines creditbit and processes transactions makes up a part of the network, and the machines work together. That means that one central authority can’t tinker with monetary policy and cause a meltdown – or simply decide to take people’s creditbits away from them.
Conventional banking is not available to 5 billion person, and it is a hassle for the other 2 billions, they make you jump through hoops simply to open a bank account.
