Digital Currency

Along with our industrial world converting to a digital environment, so is our money.  Digital currency is now in play and will become the future of money and money movement.

I heard about Bitcoin about three years ago but I didn’t know what it was nor did I investigate.  This digital currency Bitcoin was created in October 2008 Bitcoin became a public traded stock in January 2009 at a cost per share of $0.01 USD.  As of today when I looked up the cost per share for Bitcoin on google finance, Bitcoin now trades at $4,200.01 USD per share.  I believe this is proof that digital currency as a means of transacting business, will be our future.

PBS has this commentary concerning digital currency:

The people that saw the potential of this opportunity and took advantage by purchasing the stock at $0.01 per share, capitalized on their vision.  They took a chance and it has paid off handsomely.

You now see how this new technology will affect human life.  You also see that businesses are trying and using this digital currency.  The internet, email, and the digital platforms that are a part of our lives were not passing fads nor will be digital currency.

Now is the time to take advantage of the opportunities that are availing themselves in our new digital economy.  Now is the time to begin asking yourself where do I fit into this new age and how can I get it to work for me.   Let my mentor Jay Kubassek share with you more about the      Digital Economy
