Bitcoin – Anyone Remember the Everquest Economy?

Nov 19, 2013

I’m sure that one day virtual currency will be perfected and even adopted by the top economies, but in the current state I compare bitcoin to video game gold and platinum.  So someone figures out how to dupe the bitcoin gold and starts flooding the economy, selling it cheaper and cheaper with each new batch and then all of a sudden, just like in the Everquest economy, the government is going to have to come in and make platinum sinks (slot machines and other crazy ways to get people to spend their money on chances to get rare  items or more plat.)  It’s really not that farfetched to think that someone can make as much of this currency as they want and drive all of the world economies into the gutter.  Just be careful, don’t go crazy investing your life savings into what is essentially pretend money – remember the days when money was actually backed by real...

Can You Crowdsource a Marriage?

May 26, 2013

Crowdsourcing is a very simple concept that is available to people thanks to the internet. The idea of Crowdsourcing was first targeted by entrepreneurs and developers or directors who are looking forward to execute a certain project but faced a problem with the funding. In order to overcome this obstacle, they would post their project on one of the many Crowdsourcing websites such as GoFundMe.com, kickstarter.com and Fundeverything.com.

Celebrities and Crowdsourcing This concept has started to be approached by celebrities as well.

This includes projects that raise funds for medical treatments, weddings, honeymoons, wishes and dreams among other things. For example, there is a Crowdsourcing project at GoFundMe.com about a man from Egypt who is trying to overcome the obstacles in order to marry his girl. As the project states, according to the traditions of Egypt, the man will have to buy an apartment before proposing, so he needs help raising the amount of money that he is missing. This is only one of the many projects of this nature that can be found online, there are hundreds of touching stories that the internet Crowdsourcing community is funding. Types of Crowdsourcing Websites Like anything, there are numerous types of websites, each one has its own rules. For example, Kickstarter only funds projects that reached their goals. Each project will set a goal at the beginning, it can exceed the goal but if the project does not reach the goal, they will not be paid and the backers will get their money back. There are other websites such as Gofundme.com and Fundanything.com that would pay whatever funding the campaign...
