In this day and age, more and more of our shopping habits are finding an online alternative. Whether we want to go grocery shopping, look for new shoes, or even buy prescription pharmaceutical goods, all of it can be done over the Internet. And, more importantly, all of this can be done in a legal manner as well.
The decentralization revolution is upon us, and multiple services are embracing the ideology of cutting out the middleman. Some of these services are more popular than others, such as AirBnB & Uber. And the latter company is currently working on implementing a Bitcoin payment option, according a post on Reddit.
Uber Allegedly Working on Bitcoin Payments
One of the main reasons why Uber is loved by many – and hated by almost equally as many – people is because it provides a very simple service. And that service is finding a ride from point A to point B, at the cheapest rate possible. It should come as no surprise to you that Uber is facing quite a bit of backlash in various countries around the world.
One of the biggest advancements for Bitcoin in the traditional financial world has been the fact that the world’s first Bitcoin-based security can now be traded on regulated exchanges. And it is exactly this Bitcoin-based security that has been making some headlines in recent times, especially now that it can be traded on Germany’s Tradegate Exchange.
Bitcoin Tracker One – The Exchange Traded Note
In May 2015, major news reached Bitcoin enthusiasts worldwide. Stockholm-based firm XBT Provider – XBT is the “official” abbreviation for Bitcoin – created Bitcoin Tracker One, an Exchange Traded Note (ETN) which can be traded on regular financial exchanges. Traders are able to invest in Bitcoin and access returns of the asset in USD per Bitcoin.

More and more aspects of our daily lives are taking on a decentralized shape. Whether it is the way we consume content, or how we use a cab, things are vastly different compared to five years ago. And the decentralization revolution has only just begun. Several companies are now working on the decentralized aspect of parking your car.
Parking Your Car In A Convenient Way
A lot of people on this planet spend multiple hours of every day inside their cars while driving to and from work, taxi-ing children to different locations, et cetera. There is one thing all of these car-related tasks have in common: finding a proper place to park your vehicle. A task that sounds so mundane and easy, yet, in reality, is very time-consuming, if not frustrating at times.
Bitcoin is an interesting alternative payment option for both retailers and consumers. Retailers can save a lot of money in fees per transactions, and attract customers from all over the world. But so far, there have been little to no specific “Bitcoin Deals” for consumers. That is about to change, though, as Bitdeals.io is collecting all available Bitcoin Deals right now.
The usage of Bitcoin in Spain has been on the rise in recent months, thanks to various efforts by companies such as Chip Chap. Additionally, a few new Bitcoin ATMs have also been installed at prominent locations in Barcelona, which could boost BTC adoption. And Coinay has launched a voucher system, allowing customers to buy Bitcoin from retail locations.
Coinay – Buying Bitcoin with Vouchers
One of the main issues which novice users struggle with at the moment, is buying their first Bitcoin(s). Signing up for an exchange and verifying your identity is a tedious task, requiring a ton of personal information that not everyone is eager on handing out. Plus, in most cases, you have to wait a few days before this process in completed.
Technology allows us to achieve many goals we could only dream of decades ago. But one of the worrying aspects of technology is that it can also be misused by malicious individuals. Identity theft is just one of the many examples that have been made possible through technology. Although, not every phase of identity theft is as “high-tech” as some people would like to believe.
Obtaining Someone’s Personal Information
The topic of “convenience versus security” will always lead to heated debates when it comes to technology and its rapid evolution over the past twenty years. Our daily lives have become intertwined with the use of various technological advancements, even though we do not always understand the full implications of what we are doing.
