The Perfect Time Is...Now!

in steem •  3 months ago


Just in case you needed a reminder...I'm a STEEM fan boy!

I have never been more excited and fired up to be a part of this blockchain...And today cemented it even more...

Believe it or not, I still poke around other social media sites from time to time. Mostly to keep up to date with crypto related topics...And today I was paying close attention to...Crypto-Twitter!

For those that aren't familiar with the term, it's following all the crypto news, gossip and scandal via Twitter.

From the 'experts' to the talking heads, to project news and announcements...There is nothing quite like it! On top of all the juicy news you can follow, it's quite entertaining when whales start fighting with each other on Twitter too...

(And you thought that was only limited to whale wars on STEEM????)

Like I said...Today was awesome....I'm really fired up :)

First I learned about the switch 'Steemit Inc' made on Twitter from using the Steemit account to their newer SteemNetwork one! They are keeping the Steemit one for news about the Steemit app, while allowing the SteemNetwork account to cover all the blockchain related news and announcements.

I started following that account today and have been flooded with the amazing coverage that STEEM has been getting around the crypto world lately...

But the big news...And in my opinion this is massive...Is the announcement that CoinPayments now accepts STEEM for all e-commerce transactions!

coinpayments

Why is this big news?

Remember this is the 'blockchain of opportunity' and one of the biggest issues facing any crypto is actually being able to spend it, use it and accept it....CoinPayments is one of the largest payment processors online that deals in crypto exclusively. Think of it as PayPal for crypto currency and as we know...There is a lot of crypto choices out there!

CoinPayments has a big market share of the online merchants looking to accept crypto currency on their websites. Their plugin's, API's and POS interfaces makes accepting crypto as easy as 1, 2, 3 for their customers!

Because that's something that attracted a lot of us early online entrepreneurs to PayPal...Ease of use!

CoinPayments is super easy to use and integrate into any business! And now that they have added STEEM into their cryptos that are supported....WOW!

The official blog post can be found here on the CoinPayments blog.


I feel like a kid at the candy store. All the news of Hardfork 20 coming up, the release of the testnet and SMT's around the corner...This is the perfect time to get your 'STEEM' on!

If you want to keep up to date with all the news that's going on here, be sure to follow the Steemit Blog on Steemit.

As well, be sure to follow their two accounts on Twitter

or even CoinPayments if you are curious on how to integrate their platform into your website...

That's awesome news about CoinPayments. And I heard it from you first! :)

I also follow a lot of crypto news on Twitter, and that's pretty much all I use it for lol. But it seems to be where all the big crypto enthusiasts, talking heads (like you said), and crypto teams go to share news and their passion for blockchain technology. So I must stop in there from time to time to see what is going on.

Now I just need to setup a service where I can accept Steem as payment. I would love to test out their API and support the Steem currency that way. And I'll always accept Steem as payment lol. Great news all around. The future is looking super bright!

·

yeah man. twitter can be very entertaining when it comes to crypto.

but the news from coinpayments is awesome. just love seeing more of these kind of announcements

we sure will. :)

Thank you for this info... I have been wondering about the business end of crypto since my equipment supplier for my mining rig was interested in accepting straight BTC for the potential of insane gains down the road but without needing to go through an untrusted exchange

·

pretty sure it’s even a BC based company. don’t quote me on that but i do think they are. really super easy to use and accept crypto with them.

This is good news for the Traffic Exchange community... something that could help them upright the ship! :) Now if you could do a CoinPayments payment plan that would be cool .Do you know if they do subscriptions?

·

Excellent news! The value (in buy & sell terms) and utility (what you can do with it) of Steem are definitely rising. I'm glad I follow you. Thanks a lot!

·

appreciate that very much. and yup. utility is key!!

That's awesome they added STEEM to their crypto payment processor! Really fantastic for STEEM!

On the article side... they didn't bother to do much research though... At first hand:

Proof type: PoW

Unlike other cryptocurrencies Steem has a built-in inflation of 100% annually and no coin limit.

·

lol ya i saw that too. pretty funny. and that’s because steem is so unique lol they aren’t used to proof of brain.

Hi @jongolson,

Once the SMTs are rolled out, do you know if we will still earn Steem from Dapps?

I am not sure if we will earn both Steem & SMTs on Dapps or if we'll stop earning Steem and exclusively earn SMTs instead.


Please let me know if you have the answer.

P.S. It might be a good topic to discuss at the conference.
