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+)
https://plus.google.com/102639884404823294558/posts/YLFe4ow4rok

Bitcoin Manifesto (on @Scoop.it)
http://sco.lt/8SkV4D

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.

"Stick 'em Up, " Gates To Warren Buffet As He Shares Startup Tips via @HaikuDeck

"Stick 'em Up, " Gates To Warren Buffet As He Shares Startup Tips via @HaikuDeck | Startup Revolution | Scoop.it

Buffet's Startup Tips Are so important I created a @HaikuDeck for his tips and for implied startup tips such as:

* Multiple Money - don't depend on one income source.

* Spending - buying things you don't need means selling stuff you do...eventually.

* Savings - Save then spend not the other way around.

* Investment - Never put all eggs in one basket no matter how beautiful the egg.
* Honesty - Honesty and character and lack of it are expensive and amplifed by money so don't expect from "cheap people".

Thought this was a good Scoop to reprise given Buffet's offer to pay $1B for a perfect NCAA Tourney Bracket. Talk about how to get millions in free PR (lol). As if Warren needs "free" anything :). Smart money always makes MORE money.

Simple ways to think about what your business should do when first getting off the ground.  The ideas make sense when you read them out loud, but are often missed.

Ogni nuova Azienda deve essere riconoscibile con un logo ben studiato, per sviluppare una forte presenza sui social network, un logo accattivante incoraggia la condivisione di contenuti e di conseguenza la crescita della presenza nella comunità social.

Amanda Groover's curator insight, October 28, 2013 1:42 PM

Your brand awareness is important!  Everywhere your logo appears is an opportunity for your business to succeed or fail.  Great article on logos and social media.
