16 Tips For Using The New Pinterest Smart Feed

16 Tips For Using The New Pinterest Smart Feed | ltcinvestors | Scoop.it

Pinterest is slowly but surely becoming one of the most important social networks around. And not just for DIY stuff and home decor.

 

It doesn't matter in which industry you work. If you want to get exposure, Pinterest will provide it to you. However, you have to do more than pinning for the sake of pinning. Everything, from your pins to your boards, has to be optimized. You also have to interact with other members, repin, and like their pins.

 

In this excellent article written Stacey Corrin, you will learn that Pinterest is a little like Instagram. You reap what you sow. 

 

"It seems Pinterest is finally putting an emphasis on quality content. No more is it a game of how often you pin or how many followers you have to see your pins. It’s about providing the best value you can offer, in order to warrant showing up in someone’s feed."

For many, Bitcoin (the distributed, worldwide, decentralized crypto-currency) is all about money.But the actual innovation brought about by Bitcoin is not the currency itself but the platform (The Blockchain - a distributed ledger).
The blockchain is not only useful for money. A variety of new applications have adapted the Bitcoin protocol:

Naimcoin - distributed domain name
Bitmessage & Twister - asynchronous communication
 Ethereum -  A platform (with a simplified embedded turing complete language) that can be used with Bitcoin and other alt-coins. Ethereum can be regarded as a kind of distributed operating system: a platform allowing for new applications to be developed upon it.


The Case of Ethereum for Distributed Autonomous Corporations & Smart Contracts

 

Ethereum can be used to codify, decentralize, secure and trade just about anything: voting, domain names, financial exchanges, crowdfunding, company governance, contracts and agreements of most kind, intellectual property, and even smart property.
That’s the revolutionary feature of Ethereum:Corporations and economic transactions are fundamentally driven by contracts. By providing the foundation to validate these contracts, Ethereum allows for the deployment of so-called distributed autonomous companies (DACs) or organizations (DAOs). 


As the name suggests, DAOs are autonomous entities that subsist independently from any legal or moral entity. After they have been created and deployed onto the internet, they no longer need (nor heed) their creators. So who is actually in charge, responsible for, or accountable for their operations? There in lies the issue.Ethereum and other blockchain-based applications might liberate us from the tyranny of large online operators (eg corporate banks). 

 

This article indicates that there is a possibility that this automated code may grow out of control. But they fail to mention that the rules come from the consensus of everyone in the system. If there is a consensus with a majority the system can be changed.

"On Wall Street, an investible asset class is considered to be something that's quoted on the Bloomberg terminal," says Barry Silbert, chief executive of SecondMarket Inc., which launched a bitcoin investment fund in September. He has predicted once Bloomberg quotes a bitcoin price it would open the currency up to "substantial institutional investor interest."

More and more small businesses throughout the world are finally waking up to the benefits of accepting Bitcoin payments. Zero chargebacks, low (and sometimes no) transaction fees and no transaction reversals are big boons, but they’re only the beginning.


Some 50,000-plus merchants around the world already accept Bitcoin, Tomaino said. The “vast majority” of them, he said, are online businesses, not brick-and-mortar operations, making the in-store corner of the market “ripest for bitcoin to disrupt.”


“In five years we expect Bitcoin to be widely accepted globally so that no matter where a person goes, bitcoin will be accepted alongside cash and credit cards,” said Tony Gallippi, co-founder and CEO of BitPay.

"Whenever you have an instrument that trades over 300 million US dollars a day, it must be recognized," Peter Tasca, CEO of Laureate Trust, said in a statement.

"The digital currency works, Bitcoin has greater volume transactions than Western Union and we anticipate it will overtake PayPal later this year."

 

"In the next one or two years, Bitcoin can surpass the dollar transaction volumes of other established payment companies including Discover, and even American Express, MasterCard, and Visa," said SmartMetric CEO Chaya Hendrick.
