1,000,000 - the amount of money these guys think the name "chess.com" is worth

100,000 - the number of members Chess.com will have by the end of the year  

10,000 - the number of chess games currently being played on Chess.com  turn-based chess

1,000 -  the number of people who visit chess.com in any given hour

100 - the number of days that Chess.com has been live!

10 - the number of months of quiet development jay and I spent on chess.com before launching the site 

1 - the number of years that jay's and my wife have given us to prove that Chess.com is worth it before they make us get jobs :) 

Wish us luck!
