Salamantex, specialist for digital payment processes, and A1 make Austria "crypto fit".Owners of Bitcoins, Dash, and Co can be excited. From this summer on, they can spend their coins at more than 2,500 points of acceptance using A1 Payment - provided the merchant has activated the feature.
This is made possible by a service of the Lower Austrian Fintech Salamantex, whose software has now been integrated into the A1 Payment offer. Merchants can use it to accept cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum or Dash instead of cash or credit card, but receive the amount paid out in Euros, just as they are used to. The system has proven itself in a test run lasting several months in selected A1 shops. This means in addition to debit and credit cards, there is now another simple and secure cashless payment alternative available that is oriented towards the needs of a digital generation.
Although Austria is traditionally a country w…
Many new investors may have been scared off by the plunging market, wondering whether this thing can actually be a hedge against the rest of the crazy market. But those who did buy that day, if they bought the bottom (almost as low as $4,100 that day), they’ve nearly doubled their investment by now. Of course, it’s difficult to get up and running on an exchange, along with bank account and such, in a day.
It would seem we can therefore thank coronavirus for one thing: there are new Bitcoiners, spurred into action as a result of changing external events.
Said events may be unique, but they demonstrate one thing: in times of distress, people quickly lose faith in fiat currency.
To be fair, the same might be said of Bitcoin, but there’s a lot that goes into that. To make the statement about fiat, we look to the evidence that on March 13th, searches greatly spiked for “buy Bitcoin.” Look at the chart below.…

Didi and Romaine Taihuttu were leading a fairly normal life in the Netherlands with their three children. In 2015 and 2016, both of Romaine’s parents passed away. This shocking memento-mori convinced them that they weren’t making enough of their lives. They sold everything that they had and hit the road.
Their blog, The Bitcoin Family, originally Yolo Family Travel, chronicles their adventures. Earlier posts focus mainly on their experiences travelling. They talk about where they go, what they do and where they stay in different places, and occasionally review gear that they use. The site was also a prime example of the “minimalism” movement. Blog posts focused on getting rid of things that you don’t need and how it can make you happier.
At some point in 2017, they started trying to make the website make money to help support them. They found some partners and invested in crypto.
The next step will be to invest all of the money that we receive …
The amazing company behind the successful crypto to crypto swap exchange service, 'changeangel', have now taken crypto awareness to a whole new level! Recently the changeangel team launched a very special interactive map which allows users to plot where they have planted/found a 'Crypto Seed' card.
Seed cards can be downloaded from TricksTreats.net and printed out on your printer at home. The idea is then to leave them somewhere prominent, where perhaps someone who's not heard of crypto before, will see it and become interested and want to know more by scanning the QR code on the card. Hence 'planting the seed'.
Once your seed cards are planted around a destination of your choice and hopefully picked up by a passer by. Yourself or the person that found the card can head over to the changeangel 'Plant a Seed Map' and let other users know what type of seed card they've planted/found and where, just by clicking on the map and entering a few details.…
