Getting to know about blockchain, bitcoin and other crypto currency today

 How far does Bitcoin go on shooting up, and where does other types of crypto currency goes? Introducing Blockchain.

I wrote this article last 7 November 2017. I updated it today 19 May 2017

A blockchain is a core component of the digital currency bitcoin—conceived in 2008 and first implemented in 2009—where it serves as the public ledger for all transactions.  Definition from Wikipedia 

In the bitcoin case, every compatible client is able to connect to the network, send new transactions to it, verify transactions, and take part in the competition to create new blocks. The competition creating new blocks is known as mining.blockchain

The “blockchain” today is like the internet in the early 1990s…

and the investment implications are just as enormous.
The blockchain is a decentralized, digital ledger.
It’s decentralized nature has made it impossible to “hack”…
since no one is able to alter the ledger in all the places
it resides at the same time.
The internet changed the way we record and exchange information.
It made the flow of communication across the world
faster and more efficient.
Trillions in value were created.
Likewise, the blockchain is changing the way we record and exchange value.
It will make transactions across the world faster and more efficient.
Trillions in value will be created.
Yet, it’s so early in the game, many people still don’t even know about the blockchain…or how they can profit from it.
And that’s creating wide-open opportunities for those in the know…
If we still can remember, the internet was the same in its infancy.
Many investors didn’t see its significance—or even know it existed—in the beginning.
Then web browsers came along and the internet was quickly on its way to mass adoption.
Early investors made fortunes.
Today, the blockchain is starting to gain traction.
Eventually, these online distributed databases will be as ubiquitous as the World Wide Web.
And a new group of early investors will get rich like those at the
start of the Internet Age.
A Decentralized Database.
The blockchain is maintained by thousands of independent computers.
These computers are constantly “talking” to each other to ensure the ledger is always valid.
By storing data across its network, the blockchain eliminates the risk that comes with information being held in a central location.
This “decentralized” network is much more secure than databases with central supervision.

How it works?

it’s more Efficient for hackers to try and break into one central site holding millions in assets than millions of individual computers holding hundreds or thousands.
The blockchain is also faster, more secure, and more efficient than centralized networks.
That makes it the perfect technology on which to reinvent the financial system and the trillions of dollars that move around it daily.
A New Network of Value.
Here are eight ways the blockchain will forever change
how we use money:

Verifying:

The blockchain will eliminate the need for you to pay an intermediary
(like a notary) to verify transactions.

Transferring:

The blockchain will make it easier for you to make payments,
transfer money, or buy and sell goods.
You’ll move your money faster and cheaper with the blockchain than
with traditional wire services like Western Union or MoneyGram.

Storing:

The blockchain will let you store money digitally instead of using a
bank, money market fund, or government security.
It could potentially make checking and savings accounts obsolete.

Lending:

You will be able to make, secure, settle, and trade loans on the
blockchain faster and easier than today.

Exchanging:

Every day, trillions of dollars in financial assets are traded between parties.
The blockchain can cut settlement times from weeks and days to minutes and seconds.

Funding:

Raising money now requires third parties such as investment bankers, venture capitalists, and lawyers, among others.
The blockchain will automate this process and eliminate the need for third parties. More people will have access to capital than ever before.

Insuring:

The blockchain supports decentralized models for insurance
that can make risk management more efficient.
This will lower premiums overall.

Accounting:

The blockchain makes bookkeeping virtually automatic and instantaneous while keeping it 100% transparent.
As you can see, the blockchain will revolutionize how you use money.
But what we don’t know is that the blockchain’s impact will extend well beyond finance…..

INTRODUCING THE CRYPTOCURRENCY

BITCOIN, ETHERIUM, LITECOIN ? these are the most popular crypto currency  today.

Here is an example of Bitcoin values in comparison to USD.

7 of November 2016, the time I wrote this..

bitcoin

1 bitcoin is equivalent to USD 716.64 ( I wrote this article back in November 2016. Not even a year yet and the value today of tremendously increase. The most influential people who buys bitcoin are coming from China.
The question is would you believe it or not? Would you participate it?

Today’s rate of Bitcoin to a USD, 19 May 2017.

It is predicted that Bitcoin will rise to a million per 1 Bitcoin

Getting to know

BITCOIN –

A type of digital currency in which encryption techniques are used to regulate the generation of units of currency and verify the transfer of funds, operating independently of a central bank.
“bitcoin has become a hot commodity among speculators”
a unit of bitcoin.
“bitcoins can be used for online transactions between individuals”

As I am now into Bitcoin, I am getting to understand how it works and how it is easy, fast and safe in dealing with  by the click of a keyboard or a mouse on your computer. The most part I love bitcoin is that  I save the cost of sending money to anywhere in the world like the remittance center charges.

An example of that is my latest transaction to one of  bitcoin wallet. [see below]. I use this app to receive money and pay money inside the Philippines.

Those are my latest transaction and those amount are mostly funded from my online  bitcoin affiliate company.

Now you can provably believe when I can show you prove.

Therefore, we should start building and investing into bitcoin  and bitcoin if you can see .. it is been included in the currency exchange data.

What if??? what if in few months or a year from now…. 1 bitcoin is equivalent to 1,000.00 USD? Will you thank me? (my statement is happening now as I update this article 19 May 2017).

Why not invest today? But hey!! only do it when there is money that you can consider to put it aside, not that you have nothing to eat in a running days alright??

How can you do this? well, leave a comment and I can share it to you personally if not,  try this one……

Which I am currently working with this right now. Be aware though that there are millions of scams on the internet. It is somehow hard to recognise. But investing into bitcoin or other investment always has RISKS.

My Beginner’s Travel Guide in The Philippines

http://invol.co/aff_m?offer_id=1440&aff_id=8316&source=deeplink_generator&aff_sub=8316&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.seashorepattaya.com%2F

People have always been fascinated with other places thanks to the power of internet. People traveling to tourist spots of other countries share not just their photos but also their experiences with various people and their culture. The more people share their travel experiences, the more other people become curious and plan to such places. I heard from my friends that traveling to other countries, such as France, UK, Japan, South Korea, Singapore and Thailand, would be a great experience. Well, I definitely agree since we get to learn several things that we couldn’t learn in our own country but great beginner’s travel guide would be to explore one’s neighboring region first before going abroad.

Mati Oriental in the Philippines

Other than it really takes time and money to travel to distant places, we still need to question if we really understand our own country, whether its ethnic groups, local cultures or history. A great beginner’s travel guide is to start within your country to gather information from different local regions as it saves time and money while simultaneously enjoying and understanding the culture of various neighboring areas by conversing with the local people and the foreigners staying in that region.

Let’s take a simple example here in the Philippines – a very diverse country. My dad grew up in Manila while my mom in Davao city but we, the children, mostly adopted our dad’s culture. We have been staying in Davao city for as long as I could remember. When I was a child, I was very fond of going to my neighbors’ house (just a few meters away) and play with the kids. I was not only enjoying my time with them, but I also learn their interests and behaviors as if I was learning their culture. It was my beginner’s travel guide.

Then as I we became closer friends, I got the opportunity to get know other neighbors who lived about 50 meters away, without feeling intimidated. Then I started to gradually keep up with their behaviors, which are a bit different from my neighbors who lived a few meters away. The kids on the other side of our fence were playful but reserved while those who lived a few blocks away were also playful but quite boisterous.

Somehow, these two groups of kids were adjusting their approaches with each other for the sake of friendship, but of course, there were times that I got to see some of them fight over an outdoor game. I guess this is what makes us come into compromise – having to play outdoor games that we enjoy. It was the culture of the kids those days in Davao City. Every weekend, it seemed like it was part of our schedule to play, at least an hour or two for the day, outdoor games like hide-and-seek, tag, dodgeball or kickball. However, it was different when we went to Metro Manila.

Our family traveled by land going to Manila (thousands of kilometers away) in order to visit a deceased relative on my father side. We had a few stop overs in some regions in the Philippines only for a while so we really never got to explore the cultures of the places we passed by. Since we stayed longer in Manila, we had a chance to get a glimpse of their culture, specifically the kids’ culture. My cousins were not fond of outdoor games so they stayed most of their time playing board games or computer games. For us who lived in Davao city, it was a surprising culture and it was quite intimidating. Later, I found out that my younger sister and one of our cousins fought over decisions on what to play. In addition, having different dialects, Tagalog and Visayan, would make both sides reserved in speech whether they are children or adults but as they say, “When in Rome, do what the Romans do.”

The idea here is that if going to a distant place with different cultures would make one intimidated and form unpleasant relationships, it’s a best beginner’s travel guide to start wandering within your country from your nearest locality to the farthest regions in your country before going to foreign countries in order to lessen culture shock. Although we were taught to study the places, people and culture of other countries, it’s very different when we experience them first-hand, especially if the target area has a unique culture.

.. He met people from different ethnicities and gathered information about the neighboring localities bit by bit. Slowly traveling farther and farther every year gave him courage to start traveling abroad alone and met various individuals without feeling intimidated because he already had second-hand information on the country he planned to traveled to. From Philippines, he went to Hong Kong, the next year to Macau, the year after next to Singapore, then China, Thailand and its neighboring countries, and lastly to India but this time, with new friends who also like to travel. What’s advantageous about taking small steps traveling distant places is that you get to meet tourists who have been to several countries and naturally collect information.

Tourist Spots that are close to your region is a nice place start exploring for a beginner’s travel guide. They do not only have breathtaking surroundings but also have various people who lived in or traveled from other local areas or from foreign countries in which the travel guide to start within your country would make it seem like you’re traveling abroad. Conversing with foreigners is the good way to start gathering information about other countries. First, guide them about what you know within your country, whether about the places, people or your culture. It’s also a way of building trust.

After giving them enough information and established at least a handful of trust, the next step is to start asking questions about the countries they know or they are familiar with. How many foreign countries have you been to? What’s your country like? What’s the most attractive or the best place to hang out in your country? What are your native delicacies that you would recommend for foreigners to eat? What can you say about the people in your country? What’s interesting about your culture? These are just some of the questions to start the discussions about the country they came from. Assisting foreigners in your country creates a give-and-take relationship, which also serves as a beginner’s travel guide. As you delve deeper into obtaining information, you will have the opportunity to at least understand a bit of the place, people and their culture.

. It’s a Japanese school located at the north of Davao city. When I studied there for one and a half years, I was able to meet Japanese descendants who have been going in and out of Japan. Other than acquiring information from Japanese professors, those descendants also shared facts, their ideas and opinions about Japan and their people, although books and internet also helped me a lot in information acquisition.

 

 

They talked about how different their culture is compared to the Philippines, especially when it comes to discipline. Whether it’s the government or the citizens, everyone there works hard to build a better society not only because they strictly follow the laws but also because it’s already their habit since childhood. I was informed on how Japan’s school system practically and meticulously trained primary school kids about manners and discipline before they proceed to High School. Even though those were just second-hand information, I was still refreshing to hear what it’s like to be in that country and with the help of imagination, it’s as if I was residing in that developed country.

Currently, when people I know talk about the places they have been to, I simply smile and nod because I already understood what it’s like to be in that certain country they were discussing. However, I do not disclose second-hand information easily because it’s not like I was really there and those second-hand information I obtained might not be entirely true, although I share information from the books I have read and state my source. There are times that second-hand information are not well elaborated, so the next step in a beginner’s travel guide after gathering data is to experience what you have heard from those foreigners, that is, if you have the time and money to finally travel distant places. Then follow the same travel guide – gather information from various people who have been to the neighboring areas or countries, and travel to the nearest local region if you have the time and money.

I have been traveling only to my neighboring local areas, and had witnessed the similarities and differences among those regions while I collected information from people about the neighboring areas in Davao city and some ideas about foreign countries. For me, I still need understand my own country because of its diversity, which is why I ask questions from people who have been to several places if I have the opportunity, while saving time and money simultaneously. And when I went to places I’m interested in, it was not that surprising to encounter such people and experience their culture. I was able to blend in naturally. It is a great beginner’s travel guide to start within your country in obtaining information to avoid, or at least mitigate, culture shock.

 

It is not easy to adjust one’s attitudes and behaviors when staying in a country that has a completely dissimilar culture which is why the best beginner’s travel guide without much intimidation is to understand your locality and gather information from visiting foreigners, then slowly taking steps from your local region to the neighboring places until you have visited all the regions in your country. Traveling to neighboring regions one at a time could help in gradually familiarizing a unique set of habits from different ethnicity and in obtaining ideas about what the visiting foreigners shared about their country.

Braun The Best Hair Removing Gadget for Women Today

 

 

As a woman, I am very concern where hair grows when it shouldn’t be. Yes, I am talking to private parts. For years, I used a few type of hair removers creams, razors, blades, scissors, shavers, you name it! These are the things to take note to avoid shavers and creams.

Hair Remover – Shavers or Razor

In my experience, as I was using Razors before, Shaving using Razor is not always suitable for all skin types. Extra sensitive skin can get easily irritated right after you shave, since shaving removes a very thin layer of your skin along the process.

After shaving in just few hours, my unwanted hair grows back again.  Not only this, it also irritate my skin, a few times i have rushes and my skin was itchy and those parts where the hair was growing has a small dots dots in color red.

The worst part is when I was using a hair removing cream, it develop fungal  infection.

Hair Remover – Creams

The worst part is when I was using a hair removing cream, it develop fungal  infection.  Because hair removal creams work by chemically dissolving the hair, the chemicals have to be mildly acidic. Caustic chemicals are usually slightly pungent and although depilatory creams are perfumed, they have a distinct smell, this maybe most women are sensitive to hair removing creams that would irritate skins PH balance and even causes fungal infection  as base in my experience.

Spa and Salon 

No doubt we can go to clinics where they have hair removing facilities such as waxing and laser treatments.

I have done all these. some clinics are a much lower price and some are expensive.  It takes 2 weeks or more for the hair to grow so it saves you 2 weeks not to visit your spa or salons. It is just time consuming for me and really a total waste of time and money.

Finally

I have been using BRAUN SILK EXPERT IPL since October 2016 and my skin “underarms and private parts” hair grow less and it very thin. Normally before, when I was using razor and creams, I have to do the process daily, and hair becomes thick.

I understand there are other types of brands you may look at. I was looking at the price when I was buying this product , the functionality and flexibility to use.

Braun Silk Expert IPL is very easy to control. There is button to switch for sensitive functions.

provably the best hair remover you can use from home.

The first time of use,

When I was using it for the first time, the moment I plug it to the power supply, I have press the run button and it went short circuit. I went to the service center near me which is Singapore and it is located in Tagore Lane along Upper Thomson road.  If you are buying this from other countries I am sure there is a service centre near you too.

The support is very good. They give me a new piece.

Braun Silk Expert IPL

The Products comes with Shaver, as we need to hair first and then start the process of using this hair removing gadgets.

STEPS

YOU NEED TO REMOVER LONGER HAIR USING RAZOR FIRST.

DRY YOUR SKIN WELL.

PLUG BRAUN SILK EXPERT IPL TO POWER SUPPLY. The wire or cable is pretty long though.

WAIT A FEW SECONDS AND RUN THE PRODUCT FIRST BEFORE START USING IT.

This is exactly a laser that many SPA or salons were using.

At the beginning, you feel afraid at the fist spark but sure you get use to it.

This is my video on how I use it.

This video I created when I just bought the product.   But today, I can assure you that it saves me time and money. Most of all it is safe and you will protect your skin from getting wounded and rashes or so. For the price, yes it is not cheap compare to creams and razors, but you can compare the price to a one time visit to SPA or Salons. I would recommend this to all women who shaves hair. You do not need to use exactly this brand. There are so many brands available. Stop using razors and creams. If you are giving a gift to your friends, mum, girl friends, give this kind of products and it is very useful. Today, I only use it once a week. Even there is no hair. I use it to maintain. My underarms and private part skin is smooth. It feels super clean and this is the most important.
