One of the best ways to push Bitcoin adoption to new levels is by rewarding users for performing daily tasks. Bing Rewards is the first company to offer Bitcoin as a reward to its users, with a total of US$500 to be won. This is a great way to get Bitcoin into the hands of everyday consumers who are not yet involved in the Bitcoin ecosystem.
It looks like it is that time again, when phishing emails are crawling out of the woodworks. None of the services we use is safe, as I just got a Google+ phishing mail. The ones that are reason for concern though, are the ones involving Bitcoin services.
As I mentioned last week , there is a new phishing mail going around pretending to be sent by BlockChain.info. In this e-mails, users are told they need to download the backup wallet client, which allegedly is a BlockChain.info product. Utter bollocks, of course, but still, people need to be warned to make sure no one loses their Bitcoins.
This is the first of quite a few articles to come while I’m here in Amsterdam for Bitcoin 2014. I just wanted to share my first impressions with you guys before the actual events takes place tomorrow and the day after.
Having only been to Amsterdam once before, and it was for on the other side of town that time might I add, it’s not easy to find your destination here, Even though I had printed Google Maps directions before I left, because I was that smart at least.
