3 Things Bitcoin Needs to Do to Become an Actual Currency

Bitcoin is finally starting to reach the mainstream to the point that you can buy Bitcoin through SEC approved investments in addition to currency exchange sites. However, it isn’t quite at the point of being equivalent to cash. Here are 3 things Bitcoin needs to do to become an actual currency.

Stabilize in Value

Volatility is normal with currencies. However, extreme volatility is commonly seen in currencies in distress, such as devaluing the currency in the hope of improving exports and the national economy or being devalued because of punitive trade restrictions. Bitcoin’s rapid rise and periodic wide swings are more akin to a buy and hold investment than a currency. For people to consider it as a currency, they need to be able to buy it and expect to know how much they need to pay for specific things.

Another problem is the issue of cryptocurrency hard forks. When Bitcoin splits, as recently occurred with Bitcoin cash, miners may not be able to find common ground. Now the new currency is worth almost nothing. Bitcoin itself saw a dip in prices because of fear that the July, 2016 fork would create multiple parallel currencies.

Broad Usability

For Bitcoin to become a true currency, Bitcoin owners shouldn’t have to hunt for the one coffee shop in the state that accepts it. They need to be able to buy any real estate with Bitcoin or pay their rent with it, not find the few luxury projects that accept cryptocurrency as payment.

One hurdle for Bitcoin is the time it takes for transactions to clear. When people already get mad when someone whips out a check book to pay for groceries, waiting 10 minutes or more for someone to pay for items via Bitcoin will be seen as a major negative by businesses and consumers alike.


Trust is a complex issue, but the simple truth is that people don’t buy what they don’t trust. When Bitcoin is accepted by many more retailers, they’ll see that businesses trust it, so it is safe for them to acquire it and use it. The lack of trust is made worse by the lack of insurance for Bitcoin. If you put half a million U.S. dollars in a bank account and the bank goes bankrupt, the FDIC’s deposit insurance guarantees you’ll get at a quarter million dollars back. And the FDIC has never failed in that mission. Conversely, if you lose $50,000 in Bitcoin due to a hardware failure or software glitch, there is no backup, there is no insurance, and there is no perceived safety.

Another problem is Bitcoin’s association with criminal activity. In this article that was published on Wall Street Hedge on August 5, 2017, Bitcoin wallets linked to Wannacry ransomware were used to collect ransom before being drained. Trust is hard to build, and stories like this erode it.

While Bitcoin is achieving the volume and passing regulatory hurdles necessary to move toward becoming a full currency, it isn’t there yet. If it doesn’t meet the various standards necessary to count as a currency, it remains an investment that could become a bubble instead of a lasting store of value as intended.

3 Reasons You Should Consider a Degree in Business Analytics

Business analytics is the analysis of masses of data collected by businesses. Business analytics is becoming a critical skill for businesses, even as it is coming into its own as an academic discipline. Here are three reasons to get a degree in business analytics. We’ll also discuss how the degree relates to a number of professions.

The Critical Skill for Good Decision Making

Data-driven decision making was touted as a solution for businesses by management gurus like Peter Drucker a few decades ago. However, the computer revolution was necessary to collect and enable analysis of those masses of data, and as the amount of data goes far beyond SPC charts and what you can analyze in a spreadsheet, managers are increasingly in need of business analytics skills.

In fact, you can find business majors who are spending hours learning business analytics and business IT system maintenance, just as they learn about accounting software. If you complete a formation In Business Analytics, you’ll have a skill set that employers value while standing out from the mass of generic MBAs.

The Easy Entry to the IT Field

If you get a degree in business analytics, along with an IT formation or in e-commerce, you can work on the data analysis side. You could determine the customer market segments that are buying a product and give advice on what customer profiles should be studied; someone else can alter the marketing content that already exists or put together the A/B testing of deals presented to customers. You could be the person who designs reports that the database administrator does the work to actually build. The possibilities are endless.

The Ability to Move into Virtually Any Field

You can find many people who are learning how to analyze data as part of their jobs. If you complete a degree in business analytics, you could be the data analyst in the quality control and quality assurance department who verifies the product does meet product standards.

You could support operations by analyzing real-time IoT data for potential issues to be checked out by maintenance staff. We already mentioned how data analytics skills allow you to work in SEO and digital marketing. The same skills are increasingly applied to accounting records to flag potential cases of fraud and allow businesses to close their books faster.

If you wished you could work in environmental science or engineering, you could work for utilities as a data analyst, working with the internet of things, smarter appliances, and smart meters. Now you can flag potential problems before it causes rolling brownouts, better manage highly variable renewable energy sources, and give actionable suggestions on how to maximize efficiency. Or analyze the data to determine warning signs before a major product failure, information needed by design engineers.


Business analytics is becoming an invaluable skill set for businesses in all industries. It is the backbone of digital marketing and search engine optimization, and it is being utilized in cutting-edge research across the board. And given the sheer influx of data coming in as the Internet of Things rolls out, demand for this skill set is only going to grow.




Effective Ways to Boost Profits

As a small business, one of the most important things is making a profit, no matter how small it may be. However, after a little while, you might feel that you want to increase your profits and make more money. With the margins being so small, you need to be careful about how you change your strategy in case you make things worse. Here are some top tips for boosting your profits as a small business.

Changing Your Procedures

One way that you can start making a difference to your profits is to try and change your procedures. It could mean that you try to make savings to your business so that you can maximize your existing profits. Go through all the things that you spend money on as a company and see if there are any ways you can trim your expenditure. Can you negotiate better deals with suppliers? Are there any expenses that you could do without? Doing this can be the most effective way to boost your profits as long as you don’t try to trim too much.

Stay Connected with Customers

If you haven’t been using social media much until now, then you need to start. It is a hugely effective way to generate more leads and influence your customers. You can try to spend a little on social media advertising, though this isn’t essential. You need to keep your company and your products in front of your customers so that they think of you the next time they need a product like yours. Offering discounts and incentives is another good way to engage with people on social media, such as targeting special offers only for those following you on Twitter or Facebook.


Apart from social media, are you running your marketing campaign effectively? Check your sales figures to see if your current marketing campaign is generating more sales. If it isn’t, then what can you do to improve it? Perhaps you need to start using a content company like your content shop to help you convert your strategy into more sales using blog posts. It could lead to savings for your company, especially if you are spending a lot of money on individual campaigns.

Involve Your Workers

Promoting your brand is vital to making more sales, that means you need everyone on board at your company to help sell. From the customer service advisers to the management, everyone needs to be promoting the company and spreading the word about your products. Encourage your staff to do this by offering ways to develop their jobs roles or to climb the company ladder. It is also a good way to spot rising talent in your company and nurture it for the future. If your company has sales reps or workers that use company cars, consider branding the cars so that they are giving you free advertising as they drive around.

Keeping the profits rising is what every company wants, and with these tips, you might see a rise in your company’s profits.

Once you’re doing what you love, you’ll naturally start to build a career path that will likely offer promotions, bonuses, and new opportunities. Your first focus should be to find a job you love that pays well and will help you achieve your financial goals.

Get Good at Saving your Money

You have to change your habits if you’re someone who gets money in their pocket and immediately spends it. It may help you to set up your accounts so that a part of your paycheck automatically goes into your savings and you don’t even see or touch it. Put your efforts into saving, instead of spending and watch how quickly you’re able to grow your bank account. Start putting loose change and extra dollars into your savings and out of your sight right away.

Create A Budget

Saving will also become easier when you follow a budget. Use online resources or work with your spouse to create a budget that fits your lifestyle. Doing this will force you to be honest about the bills you have to pay and how much discretionary money your budget leaves you with when you take care of what’s most important first. Determine how much you’re going to save or invest each month and don’t go over your allowed amount for entertainment or fun money.

Shop Wisely

Be cautious about how you’re spending your money when you’re out and about. Don’t automatically purchase items because they’re in front of you. Wait until they go on sale if you can or choose a cheaper brand whose product functions the same. Start shopping and spending within your means and see how quickly your bank account starts to look healthier. It’s all about putting in a little extra effort to save a few dollars here and there.


Simple and doable strategies exist that will help you build a healthy bank account. Adopt new habits that make it easier for you to do so. The results will be less stress and more wiggle room with your finances.

How to Save Money on Your Household Bills

If you are finding that money is tight, especially with the rising cost of groceries and energy, you will be looking for ways to save money. You might already be looking to using vouchers and buy one get one free deal to help with the shopping, but there are other ways you can save money. Start to look at your regular household bills to see how you might be able to shave some money off or get a better deal.

Energy Suppliers

Although you might think that most of the energy companies offer the same tariffs, there are good deals out there if you are prepared to shop around. The key is to check online and compare all of the energy companies in your area, some of the newer companies will have better offers to entice new customers. Speak to your energy provider and ask them if they can switch you onto a better tariff if they can’t then tell them you will be changing to a new provider. It might be the incentive they need to help you save money by matching the deal.

Internet Providers

Along with your energy supply, your next most expensive household bill will probably be your internet bill. Just like your energy supplier, many other providers can give you a better deal. One way that you can save money is to look at package deals; these are bundles your provider will give that include a TV subscription, landline, and internet. By having one of these bundles, you can sometimes save money rather than having separate deals for each. You should research the different providers and see who can give you the best deal.

Car Insurance

Your car insurance is, of course, an important policy to have, though that doesn’t mean you have to pay over the odds for it. Some companies sometimes have special deals with businesses, so it’s worth checking with your employers first to see if they have such a deal. There are also insurance companies that can give you a reduced policy if you are prepared to have a black box fitted to your car. The box monitors your driving, and if you are careful, you get money from your policy. It is particularly good for new drivers whose premiums are often the highest.

Other Bills

As well as the regular household bills, there may be other bills or subscriptions that you should be thinking of changing. Some of them such as gym memberships might need to be canceled to save money. If you are unsure how to do this, there are websites such as technology dreamer that have guides to help you. You should also check any magazine subscriptions that you no longer need; sometimes they can carry on with the payments unless you cancel them.

Be willing to go into detail with your bills to make sure you are getting the best deals on all of them. Even if it saves you a few dollars, it all counts in the end.
