How time flies! Next year will bring with it a birthday cake and 10 candles when cryptocurrency celebrates its first decade on the planet.

And what an exciting & eventful period it’s been since the pioneer of digital money –Bitcoin- saw the first light of day in 2009.

Both crypto and its original understudy –blockchain- have become some of the hottest buzzwords over the past years. And each in their own right as the world came to realize increasingly that the technologies represent revolutionary solutions & opportunities for the Digital Age that we live in.

We further saw global exuberance, euphoria, skyrocketing crypto values and also, of course, extreme market volatility as mankind celebrated the coming of the new era with gusto. While at the same time regulators and governments around the globe had to come to grips with the choice of the people and introduce digital currency & blockchain into their frameworks.

Although the process is ongoing and likely to take a long time given the vast disruptive effect, it’s busy gaining massive momentum within the key economies. For instance, as Fortune magazine writes, in the U.S. State of Arizona, residents can already pay their taxes by means of certain cryptocurrencies.

While today there are more than 1,800 different digital currencies available in a market worth hundreds of billions of dollars. And after being around for almost ten years, it’s now time for crypto to start embracing the real business end of the deal.

“But why are we not seeing digital currencies used more on a daily basis?” I hear you ask. Exactly! There are several issues still hampering the easy everyday use of crypto.

Enter BlocPal, the most advanced way to pay, simplified!

Please continue reading to see what the current industry problems are and how BlocPal has arrived to revolutionize crypto payments. Also how you can become part of its success story now already as a proud owner of the BPX Coin.

Problem – cryptos are hard to spend & costly

Digital currency ticks all the boxes for being the greatest payment solution ever seen. Especially in our globalized & integrated world and during this, the Digital Age, where borderless convenience & immediacy has become the norm.

Yet, even though the crypto industry has achieved breathtaking growth & extraordinary technological advancement in a relatively short period of time, there are still several issues that prevent the massive and ever-increasing global community of keen cryptocurrency owners from using it as a regular payment method.

In an article titled, “Here’s why crypto isn’t accepted for more everyday transactions”, the popular financial and business news publication, Business Insider, wrote that by the end of 2016 there were already 11,291 retailers globally which accept crypto payments from customers. And for the year 2017 alone, that amount grew by more than 30% it says.

“At the same time, users have also warmed up to the idea: a recent survey found that 40% of people familiar with the digital currency would be open to using it in everyday transactions”, Business Insider continues.

The publication further lists the “main obstacles to using cryptocurrency for everyday transactions”, of which slow transaction times and high transaction fees are two of the major ones.

In terms of the former, “The average confirmation for Bitcoin takes about 20 minutes per transaction right now – but during past stretches of activity (such as in Jan 2018), it got as high as 41 hours”, Business Insider wrote at the time. And while processing times have improved further, even now -in the second half of 2018- it can still take several minutes for a simple crypto payment authorization to go through.

While, in terms of fees, months ago Bitcoin transactions cost $40 each, although it has reduced significantly since then, Business Insider wrote. But even at a cost of between US$5-10 per transaction in current times, crypto is still considered far too expensive for everyday payments.

But there is still great optimism while people around the globe are working relentlessly on crypto payment solutions, Business Insider continued.

“Crypto e-payments companies are constantly introducing new technologies and features that could potentially decrease transaction costs and provide instant settlements for retailers, while also eliminating the issue of fraudulent chargebacks. Making ground on these issues would make crypto significantly more appealing to the masses as a form of payment”, Business Insider concluded.

However, while echoing the optimism expressed in the preceding paragraph, it must be noted that the e-wallets that come as part-and-parcel of many cryptocurrencies today are still far too simplistic to holistically cover the payment needs of crypto users and merchants alike.

For instance, existing e-wallets are commonly not geared for 24/7 support, instant & guaranteed settlement, know-your-client (KYC) regulatory requirements and auto-invoice generation, to name but a few shortcomings.

When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat.  These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor.  But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.

Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace.  The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information.  Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed.  Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?

While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.

Mission Statement

Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors.  The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve,…

The market for cryptocurrencies started with the launch of Bitcoin in 2009, and since then, so many cryptocurrencies have been launched that it gets hard to keep track of them. The crypto market has seen massive growth in the past 3-4 years as it started gaining attention from mass media, which helped in this boom.

From the past 2-3 years, several new cryptocurrency projects were launching in the market. Amid all this, the social media giant – Facebook announced the launch of their cryptocurrency platform, and this news got viral like wildfire. The announcement came forward in June, and the upcoming cryptocurrency is known as Libra, and it’ll come with its dedicated wallet called Calibra.

What is Libra?

Libra is a permissioned blockchain-based digital currency which is being developed under the supervision of Facebook’s vice president, David A. Marcus. The cryptocurrency is under development in partnership with an independent, non-profit member Libra Association. Facebook is the second member of the project, and these companies aim to use Facebook’s user base for the promotion of the digital currency when it is launched. The transactions and the cryptocurrency will be managed and cryptographically entrusted by the Libra Association.

Note: Libra Association was established by Facebook to look after the cryptocurrency and the transactions, and it was founded in Geneva, Switzerland.
