Bitcoin Manifesto: Bitcoin Changes Global Ecom, Money & Our Value Systems


Bitcoin Ecom Game Changer
What is missing from global ecommere? I know that question can cover a lot of territory, but the hint was use of the word "global". @David Amerlandwrote a highly influential post recently:

What If We Had A New Value System For Goods  & Services
http://davidamerland.com/seo-blog/692-what-if-we-had-a-new-value-system-for-goods-and-services.html

Great read. Now put David's post into the Bitcoin context and its easy to see why "universal, trusted online currency" is a big missing piece for global online ecommerce.

I've purchased things from London, but its a pain. That pain takes two forms: currency and shipping. We can't solve shipping until we crete a currency that works around the world.

Enter one of Bitcoin's big benefits.

But Bitcoin is more than a universal currency. Bitcoin is the illusive universal infrastructure long sought by Facebook and Google. Bitcoin is a platform leveler, a new way to program that beats Auth.net all to hell.

This Bitcoin manifesto makes for fascinating reading. Put aside the idea of a floating currency currently running at $350 dollars to a single Bitcoin with the real possibility of going above $1000 soon and read the paper from the "what do we need to make ecommerce really word around the web and the world" and you see the real power of Bitcoin.

Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Love this "e-learning" post because it reads just like what I would write to describe how to create sustainable online community:

  1. Clear definition of expectations and purpose
  2. Providing clear instructions to students (or web visitors) in a group (or tribe)
  3. Emphasis on keeping groups (or tibes or personas) small
  4. Close monitoring and support to be provided by instructors
  5. Defining etiquette guidelines for proper participation
  6. Devising activities relevant to the topic

Lol, change "students" to "site visitors" or "customers" and I could have written this post for content marketing or online merchants. Great post and shows we are all online teachers now.

Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

New #UseThis Video Technology for Ecom

WOW, this Augment technology that allows your customers to easily SEE your products in their home is too cool.

Watch this video to get the idea:

As a former Director of E-commerce I know that context is everything. By project your product into their (your customers') home conversions will go up by an order of magnitude.

What other uses can this idea of "augmented reality" create? Could you project your family into a vacation or your next car? Why not?



Very cool. #USEThis.

Existen en el mercado muchas aplicaciones móviles de geolocalización y pocas con marcadores. Augment es gratis y no ocupa, de entrada, mucho espacio, 
Además, es posible importar nuestros archivos 3D de una carpeta en Dropbox para visualizarlos usando Augment. También podemos crear nuestros propios marcadores.
