Why Bitcoin Is A MASSIVE Startup Opportunity

Why Bitcoin Is A MASSIVE Startup Opportunity | Startup Revolution | Scoop.it

Bitcoin, Ecommerce, Money & Value Systems
In three posts I've tried to understand how Bitcoin changes ecommerce:

Bitcoin, Money & Value Systems (on G+)

Bitcoin Manifesto (on @Scoop.it)

And this post about Bitcoin and #startups. Bitcoin as infrastructure could change everything from online ecommerce to how we pay for groceries and a coke from a vending machine.

Sure the infrastructure to achieve such a vision is largely lacking presently, but it wasn't that long ago we didn't have an Internet either. Here is how I'm going to tune my Bitcoin radar:

* Learn how to install Bitcoin commerce (nothing is easy now, but first movers will get huge benefits).
* Understand how and where Bitcoin could create the greatest impact such as http://www.curagami.com client http://www.moon-audio.com.
* Understand how Bitcoin's platform could connect to other major trends such as social, mobile and connection.

The reason I want to understand how to install Bitcoin commerce is 1. It Ain't Easy Now and 2. Customers with large international buying groups could benefit the most and the fastest. Moon-Audio sells their magical audio cables all over the world. What they've been lacking is an easy way to safely sell around the world.

if there is even a tiny chance Bitcoin can fill those shoes I'm interested and a student. If anyone reading this has resources about how to install Bitcoin commerce please share.

Lean Content Movement Brings HUGE Startup Opportunities

Lean Content Movement Brings HUGE Startup Opportunities | Startup Revolution | Scoop.it
Making the most efficient and effective use of strategies, tools, and technology for content marketing.
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Understanding The Lean Content Movement
I just wrote my second piece on the Lean Content Movement being created by the team at @Scoopit (http://www.atlanticbt.com/blog/scoopit-and-the-lean-content-movement/ ). 

Here are just a few opportunities that are out there for courageous startups to tackle:

* Tools capable of publishing to multiple locations simultaneously.
* Tools to create PERSONAS (customer archetypes). 
* Tools to create Segments (financial groupings such as VIPs). 
* Mobile content management tools.  

* Better Metrics tools (tie top of funnel TRAFFIC to bottom CONVERSION). 

Here are a few of the cool startups creating tools to support the Lean Content Movement:

How about you? What are your favorite "lean content" tools? Comment them in and I will curate into the post. As as content publisher I offer my feedback services to any startup creating a tool to help curate and create for the Lean Content Movement.
