The bitcoin crash is worse than both crude oil and the ruble | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The continued drop in value made the currency one of the absoluteworst things to own in 2014. It remains so.

The dawn of the sharing economy - Fast growth companies

The dawn of the sharing economy - Fast growth companies | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Whilst there are many definitions for exactly what makes up the sharing economy, it can be summarised as a diverse collection of sectors based on access, rather than ownership. These are now beginning to disrupt traditional business models. Although the sharing economy still has a lot of room to grow, we agreed it will work alongside traditional models, rather than replacing them entirely.

GetFaircoin | FairCoop's service to easily buy Faircoin with trust | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

FairCoop launches http://getfaircoin.net today where you can now get Faircoin easily, backed with the trust of the FairCoop community and values.
Getfaircoin is one preliminary step for the launch of Fairmarket which will be an ethical and solidarity market at a global level in order to help the P2P economy and mutual aid, without depending on the old banking system. Fairmarket its going to be launched in February, so before that, and from now on, you can start buying your Faircoins!
Also getfaircoin.net, because it freezes the price of a Faircoin for the whole day at least, will be a key method to protect the price stability which will make it easy for sellers and consumers to use Faircoin as a trading currency. In this way the price of Faircoin will be in the hands of the FairCoop community and not the speculators. Today the price is €1 = 200 Faircoin smile emoticon
…and if you want to know how to install the Faircoin wallet, now with this detailed tutorial you now have no excuse not to do it!

Your TV knows who's sitting in front of it. Your light bulbs know when someone's in the room. Your sleep monitor knows when you're dreaming. The "Internet of Things" is invading our homes, but these connected devices face a big challenge: They all speak different digital languages. And chances are it's going to be a while before your "smart" fridge can send cooking instructions to the blender.
