We’ve all heard the story of how Woocometer, a virtual currency based on Bitcoin, went from a niche to a mainstream company.
In 2014, the company launched Woocometers first product, a website with an interactive shopping cart where people could buy and sell virtual currency.
“At the time, Woocomiers value was lower than Bitcoin,” explains the Woocommerys co-founder, Ryan Schmick.
“We had only $10 in our bank account, but we sold it for $100,000, so we made $50,000 profit.”
In 2014 Woocomers growth was driven by the growth of the US dollar and the growth in the value of the Chinese yuan.
Woocomier also used Bitcoin to raise money for the company, and its growth continued for years.
“I think Bitcoin is going to be the main reason that Woocommers growth continues to grow,” says Schmicks co-founders co-author, Marko Kovanovic.
“A lot of things change with time, but Bitcoin has remained very strong.
So why do we care? “
It’s still very young, so if you want to buy something with Bitcoin, Woocers value will go up.”
So why do we care?
Virtual currency has a big impact on the way that people shop online.
It is not only used to pay for goods and services, but also as a store of value.
This is a huge issue for the cryptocurrency community, because as digital currencies have become more popular, people are increasingly turning to them for payments.
However, the biggest benefit is that virtual currency can be used to build a community and to gain financial literacy, and this can create a positive feedback loop that encourages more people to use virtual currencies.
“If you can use a virtual money to buy goods and service, it can be a good alternative to fiat currency,” says Kovanov.
“But when it comes to a currency as a currency, if you’re not really paying for it with it, you’re creating a bubble.”
But why is virtual currency so important?
“Virtual currencies can have a big effect on the financial system and the economy,” explains Kovanic.
What are the benefits? “
The value of virtual currencies will also go up if people become more sophisticated about how to use them.”
What are the benefits?
As digital currencies continue to gain in popularity, it is no surprise that more and more people are using them to make purchases.
They can also be used for online payments.
This gives rise to the question of what benefits virtual currency provides to the global financial system.
In addition to creating an economic advantage for businesses, it also allows them to become more socially and politically engaged.
“Virtual currency allows people to pay with the value and the quality of goods they want to purchase,” explains Schmicky.
“There are certain benefits that can be brought to a wider society.
If people become aware of the value that digital currency brings to the economy, they can become more involved in the economic process, and they can support the economy by helping to ensure that it can grow and stay viable.”
In this way, virtual currencies are likely to be a major part of the next wave of innovation in financial technology.
How do we know virtual currencies have such a positive impact?
According to the World Bank, the value added by digital currencies rose from $25bn to $50bn in 2016, and from $1bn to a record $6.6bn in 2017.
According to Kovan, the number of businesses in the US that accept Bitcoin is expected to grow by 40% in 2019.
“This is a great example of the growth potential of virtual currency,” explains Shmick, who is also a former co-chair of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas and the co-creator of the crypto-currency Ripple.
“With a blockchain, people can transact directly in a currency that’s not tied to a central bank.”
This means that businesses that want to accept Bitcoin as a payment method can use the blockchain to record the payments made to them, and the virtual currency is then converted to a fiat currency.
This creates a financial transaction that’s more transparent than what you’d find in the financial world.
The same can be said for the other benefits of virtual cryptocurrency.
It has the potential to change the way we transact in society.” “
Bitcoin has an incredible future in financial technologies.
It has the potential to change the way we transact in society.”
