About time: You Embraced BitcoinBy Angelica Malin
Do you often feel as if technology is moving too fast and you just can’t keep up? That’s because it is, and it’s only going to get faster as time goes by. 2016 is set to be a year of ground-breaking technology that includes virtual reality-yeah, that thing that seemed like it was a Hollywood dream-that’s real now. And what about a currency that is only in the ether, solely used for internet transactions? It’s time to embrace the new world. Here is a secret that could put you ahead of the curve, that secret is bitcoin.
Bitcoin could be about to take the world by storm. It is the currency of the future, a pure e-currency that can be used for all online purchases. Many businesses have already embraced it, and are reaping the rewards. There are many advantages to using bitcoin, and very few downsides.
Many people like to use bitcoin because the purchases are discreet, a person’s name isn’t associated with any of their purchases like it is with a credit card. There is no tax on purchases and there are very low transaction fees, if any. Another great thing about it is there is no hassle in dealing with varying exchange rates.
Some sites use bitcoin as well as normal currency, and some have even started using it exclusively. There are online casinos now where players can play bitcoin roulette, bitcoin blackjack, and all the other classic games. The only difference in the game is, they are spinning the wheel with bitcoins rather than traditional currency. But the differences that the site can benefit from are why so many businesses are now making the switch. You see, site owners are making great savings from using bitcoin and not having to deal with tax, transaction fees, and exchange rates. They pass all these savings on to the customer in promotions and offers, and this leads to even more business.
If you are the owner of a business and you deal with a lot of transactions online, you should really consider using bitcoin sooner, rather than later. It seems that more and more businesses will go down this route over the next few years, so it would be wise to jump on it quickly before it becomes a bandwagon.
If you aren’t the owner of a business, maybe you should think about opening one using bitcoin. Or at least switch to bitcoin sites for your shopping, or gaming, or whatever it is you like to do. No longer will you have to pay extra for your purchases, or wait for transactions to clear, or worry about your privacy. And also, everyone will be using it in the not so distant future so you may as well get used to it.
If you are one of those people who has missed all the trends in the past and only caught up when it is too late, why not make 2016 the year when you are one of the first ones in the know? Get using bitcoin now and get ahead of the curve.
