Why bitcoin is best for your business

Posted by 148Apps Staff on April 27th, 2017

First and foremost it is important to know what Bitcoin is. It is a cryptocurrency or more understandable the digital form of cash. Do not think it is anything like PayPal or any other online payment service because it is the complete opposite. The money on PayPal is cash that someone earned and then, using the credit card, or some other source transferred it there. Bitcoin is a currency, while PayPal is an online payment system.

Bitcoin was invented in 2008 by Satoshi Nakamoto, but that is just a name the person or a group of people who developed this masterpiece used, while the true identity is unknown. Released in 2009, Bitcoin became popular in no time. The technology uses blockchains and verifies the transactions by the network nodes, and it is a peer-to-peer system. This is just a brief explanation and more information can be found on their website and all around the internet.

Bitcoin is widely used all around the world, but because of its benefits and constant cash flow, it is used more and more each day in the businesses. slotozilla.com was made with the help of Bitcoin.
Top 5 Reasons to Use Bitcoin

1. Safety

Probably the best attribute of Bitcoin is safety. All of the transactions, whether you are receiving or sending, are encrypted and highly secure. For the transaction to decrypt both sides must use the unique code provided by the service.

Each person has their profile and the wallet id. It found a great usage in the online gambling industry, as the huge amount of transactions occur each day, and the most important thing for the players is to make sure that their money can be safely deposited and withdrawn.

2. Speed

Once the transactions are confirmed, they are done in no time. How many times have you withdrawn the cash from the online payment service and had to wait for three, five or even more days before the money went into the bank account? Now you can simply take a few minute break, and the money is there.

3. No Fees

Bitcoin transaction fees vary from 0% to 1%. Compared to the 2% - 6% from other services, it is a no brainer which one is better. The bank does not need to approve the transaction because the blockchains do the job automatically and therefore the fees are almost non-existent. Sometimes you will be asked to pay a small fee of up to 1% just to make the transaction faster. No fee factor is incredibly important for businesses since the huge amount of transactions occur each day and the cash flow is enormous.

4. Universal currency

Companies often work with other firms which are located in another country, or even overseas on another continent. As the country changes, the currency does the same. That is where the money transactions become a problem because of the exchange rates and foreign transaction fees. Bitcoin does not face that problem at all because it is a universal (global) currency without borders.

5. Easy To Use

Bitcoin technology is very complex and to get familiar with it in depth, probably around 50 to 60 hours of reading and studying is required, if not more. It might sound like a bad thing, but it is not at all since you do not need to become an expert to use it. It is enough just to know how to make an account and learn the transaction process, and you are good to go.

It is recommended to educate people in your business about it because Bitcoin knowledge is very important for the financial sector. Many universities and colleges already teach young people about the whole technology behind it.

Concerns and Solutions

Just like everything else, Bitcoin is not perfect at all.

  • Bitcoin is not regulated
  • The currency is unstable
  • Hard to implement in the long-term plans

Government support is something that Bitcoin lacks. The decentralization might be great, but the fundamental thing about the currency is the government support. Your business might have some issues when working with Bitcoin and foreign countries because it is banned in some states. Countries like Russia, China, India, Iceland, and Sweden have either banned or restricted the usage and mining of Bitcoin.

If you look at the USD, EUR or any other currency ratio with Bitcoin in the last 5 years, for example, you will be shocked. In 2012 Bitcoin was equal to $5, and nowadays it is about $1000. In theory, the value of Bitcoin can drop or increase by several hundred percents in no time. If the business makes a $1000 transaction in Bitcoin which is currently equal to 1 Bitcoin, the company receiving the cash has no idea how much is that 1 coin going to be worth tomorrow.

However, companies Coinbase.com and BitPay.com have a solution for that. As the sender pays in bitcoin, the receiver will get the cash in any other desired currency. So basically, what they do is they immediately after the payment was done do a currency conversion, guaranteeing the value to the receiver.
Some of the companies that accepted the Adyen BitPay system along with Bitcoin are:

  • Microsoft
  • Overstock
  • Dell
  • Virgin Galactic
  • WordPress

Those are giant businesses meaning that if they trust the system, why wouldn't anyone else. As they are a huge factor in the global market in different areas by implementing Bitcoin in their firms they only helped to get Bitcoin more popular, gain customer confidence and become reliable.

Overall, Bitcoin has both advantages and disadvantages, but in their eight years of existence they have overcome many obstacles, and can only improve. If you are thinking about implementing Bitcoin in your business, then it might be the best to consult and expert not only in the technology field but also in economics and get familiar with fundamentals as well as the young and successful projects such as Bitcoin itself.

Get up to speed with everything you need to know in MU Origin’s latest update

Posted by 148Apps Staff on April 26th, 2017
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

In case you haven’t heard, MU Origin just got a colossal new update with new all-server events, battle modes, and systems making their way to the land of MU. Here’s a handy guide to everything you need to know about the latest content.

Brand new PVP mode – Battlefield of Heroes

To kick things off, there’s the new all-server PVP battle event, Battlefield of Heroes. Now, an RPG revamping its battle modes here and there might not seem like anything new – but in the land of MU things tend to be a little more epic. Pushing the boundaries of graphics capabilities and server limitations is the name of the game in MU Origin, and it’s perfectly exemplified in this gargantuan 100 player team battle event, fully realised in stunning 3D visuals.

Split into one of two teams, you’ll be competing against up to 50 other warriors, battling to gain points by vanquishing your opponents, hunting for bosses, and mining precious items. Every point you pick up brings the promise of better rewards so be sure to register from 21-00-21:25 every Tuesday and Friday to get involved in the action.

Battle Core Event

Another exciting all-server event served up in the latest update is Battle Core – a mad dash race for teams to reach 1,000 points in order to emerge victorious. There will be plenty of rewards for those that do, with large amounts of EXP, fame points, and achievement points earned for every victory. At the same token, rewards will diminish significantly after every loss, so there’s no room for any shirking.

To keep all things fair and competitive, the Battle Core system will assess the ability of each team to make sure that their opponents will be evenly matched, so it’s going to take brains as well as brawn to win.

Server Dungeons – ‘Harmageddon’ and ’Elemental War’

Team up with players from all over the world to take on evil in these two new all-server dungeons. These certainly aren’t to be taken lightly, with victory in Harmageddon only being achievable by defeating the final boss in under 15 minutes – and to get that far you will have to battle past the Four Knights in order to summon him.

Elemental War is no picnic either, with victory achieved only after destroying evil hordes one after the other. So what’s so hard about that you ask? Well, there are over 30 waves of them in total, and each get progressively more difficult with every one that you dispatch. On top of that, you’ll be battling against the clock as well – if there are any monsters left standing when the time limit expires then the dungeon will end, and so will your chance to pick up those precious rewards.

Upgrade your characters with the new Soul Stone and Relic Systems

Besides adding in some glorious new ways of engaging in combat, the latest update to MU Origin also provides some new and unique systems to upgrading your character and gaining buffs.
The Soul Stone system will task you with finding one of three different types of stone – Orbium, Tris, and Quadion – which when used and combined together in various ways will grant elemental stats to your character.

These precious stones can be found by mining for them using Diamonds and the mysterious Soul Dust – which can be obtained in the Elemental War dungeon and Battlefield of Heroes event.

The Relic system will provide even more ways to boost your character by piecing together the fabled Relics – Golden Grail, Golden Crown, Golden Sword, and Golden Scripture – from 6 different pieces. To get the benefits from the pieces, you’ll need to enhance them using fragments, which you can find in the Harmageddon dungeon and Battlefield of heroes event. Do all of that and you’re on your way to receiving some really powerful boosts to your stats.

But that’s not all...

Besides the big events and fancy new stat systems, you’ll find improvements in many more areas of the game. In-game items have had their stack limits significantly raised, three brand new pets have been introduced, the max equipment enhance level and Zodiac levels have been boosted, and there’s also a new costume system to give your character a fresh new look too. Besides all this, MU Origin is even letting you cut a few corners here and there with the Daily Benefits system, which allows you to instantly clear daily tasks.
