Bitcoin "eCommerce" Trick

The Bitcoin eCommerce" trick is basically where you accept "crypto" money in an eCommerce store (for real world goods). Whilst the payment you receive will be 100% "crypto", you're able to exchange the "cost" of goods sold (COGS) out via an exchange, and keep the profits as "crypto".

The aim is to ride any price increases in the underlying "crypto" assets, which should amplify your profits. Obviously, this works the other way - in that it could also lead to a loss of profits due to a drop in the price of the "crypto" tokens you were paid. However, generally, if you play the game properly - you should be able to increase your profits quite substantially with this method.

This tutorial is going to briefly explain the various points about the way this works. To do so means that you have to ensure that you understand fully what you're doing, and how the process will grow...

Firstly, if you run an "eCommerce" store, you will need to accept payments.

With the plethora of services online today (including the likes of Stripe and PayPal), you have many ways to "receive" payments without the need for a traditional "merchant account".

One of the newer ways to do this is with a service called BitGo. This is a "payment receipts" system for "crypto" tokens. Basically, it allows businesses to accept "crypto" currency for their products or services, allowing users to take full advantage of the likes of Bitcoin, Ethereum etc without fearing any security issues (BitGo is heavily focused on security implementation).

This means that if you receive any money via "crypto" tokens, whilst their price will often be line with the various "fiat" currencies - they will typically be quite volatile. For this reason, it's often the case that many eCommerce store owners will simply "exchange" their "crypto" tokens for 100% fiat currency either at the end of the month, or after an order is received.

The "trick" employed by a large number of store owners is to actually keep their profits in the "crypto" ecosystem. This means they pay for everything else - including the likes of their COGS, warehousing and administrative costs - whilst retaining the pure profit in their exchange accounts.

By doing this, they have nothing to lose (and everything to gain) by letting their holdings ride the price waves of BTC and the other "crypto" tokens - multiplying their holdings faster than any savings account could ever do.

The Basics of Cryptocurrency and the Way It Works

In the times that we're living in, technology has made unbelievable advancement as compared to any time in the past. This evolution has redefined the life of man on almost every aspect. In fact, this evolution is an ongoing process and thus, human life on earth is improving constantly day in and day out. One of the latest inclusions in this aspect is cryptocurrencies. Cryptocurrency is nothing but digital currency, which has been designed to impose security and anonymity in online monetary transactions. It uses cryptographic encryption to both generate currency and verify transactions. The new coins are created by a process called mining, whereas the transactions are recorded in a public ledger, which is called the Transaction Block Chain.

Thus, it becomes easier to track purchases

Virtual Currency Games

Every little boy's (and many grown men's) dream of making a living by playing video games is edging closer to reality. The recent release of HunterCoin and the in-development VoidSpace, games which reward players in digital currency rather than virtual princesses or gold stars point towards a future where one's ranking on a scoreboard could be rewarded in dollars, and sterling, euros and yen. The story of the millionaire (virtual) real estate agent... Digital currencies have been slowly gaining in maturity both in terms of their functionality and the financial infrastructure that enables them to be used as a credible alternative to non-virtual fiat currency. Though Bitcoin, the 1st and most well known of the crypto-currencies was created in 2009 there have been forms of virtual currencies used in video games for more than 15 years. 1997's Ultima Online was the first notable attempt to incorporate a large scale virtual economy in a game. Players could collect gold coins
