An Ethical Way to Sell NFTs as an Artist

This is a guest post by @justgoscha

Using NFTs to get some income as an artist is pretty daunting. What’s added on top is the heavy pushback from some of the art community online. In the following write up, I want to discuss some of the controversies surrounding NFTs, and then provide an ethical way of how they can be used.

There might still be better ways, so I would be happy if you provide your thought-out opinions in response.

There are known controversies surrounding NFTs. People claiming, it’s a Ponzi scheme, or the destruction to the environment it causes. With claims as high as one NFT burns as much energy as a 1-family household in a month. Depending on the NFT platform and blockchain these concerns are valid.

How to be Mindful while Trading, Minting or Learning about Crypto

This is a guest post by Kaira Jewel Lingo, a mindfulness teacher and spiritual mentor I’ve met a few years ago at a wonderful retreat in Devon, UK. I have been using her guided meditations for many years in order to get some calm and ease in the middle of a busy day, or at the end of it. So it’s a great pleasure to invite Kaira Jewel to teach us how to slow down and enjoy life around our screens:

Many of us spend much of our day on the Internet, focused on things like web development, design, trading, mining, or learning about the ever-fascinating world of cryptocurrencies. Already surfing the Internet in our downtime for pleasure, shopping, or to read up on news can be quite addictive, all the more so when we must be online all day for our jobs and our income depends on rapid responses and quick decisions to market trends. It’s so easy to get sucked down the rabbit hole and lose ourselves.

There are practices we can learn to help us to regain perspective, maintain our balance, joy, relaxation and ease and engage mindfully with technology. It’s not easy, but it’s extremely worthwhile.

Five Investments Guaranteed to Be Better Than ETH, BTC or SOL!

One of my friends went to church recently, and the priest talked about Bitcoin during the Sermon. It can’t get any more mainstream than that, right? The incredible popularity of cryptocurrencies is of course, directly tied to its rapid increase in price and its success as the asset, currency, or investment to beat. With this type of gains, no other investment comes close. What more the gains of the last 2 or 3 years? Heck, if you bought $100 worth of Bitcoin in 2010, you would be a billionaire! So what are these better investments I am talking about?

Why We Rebranded to Unblock.net from Bitcoin-Price.com

Hello fellow blockchain enthusiasts!

These are interesting times, and it’s a blessing to be here while it all happened.

Many of you are familiar with the analogy of Bitcoin and Email.

When the internet began gaining traction in the 1990s, email was the first application of internet technology, which was just a P2P network of computers and intranets back then.

So first adopters and newcomers naturally thought that Email was the Internet.

And then it blew up and grew to what it is today.

Faceter ICO Review- Intelligent Video Surveillance

Faceter ICO Review – An Overview

Faceter is a system which makes video surveillance smart, by giving eyes to cameras — computer vision, facial recognition, object detection and video content analysis, in real time. Most video surveillance systems are of little use, and therefore inherently inefficient since it is only possible to record data via videos and store video archives. They are therefore backward-looking and dumb in that they cannot, and are completely unable to react to a situation when it is actually happening in real time.

Faceter is the first decentralized surveillance system for consumers. Faceter makes video surveillance smart, giving brains to cameras, through enhanced face detection, object detection, and real-time video analysis. These features allow cameras to understand the situation and respond to it, offering much better security to all the customers.

The Evolution of Cryptocurrency: Highs and Lows

evolution of cryptocurrency

Over the last several months, the cryptocurrency industry has advanced at an unprecedented rate, gaining mass acceptance among the financial experts.

For instance, Jamie Dimon regrets calling Bitcoin a fraud currency as the crypto economy approached a $1 trillion in terms of market capitalization.

However, in the last few days, the aftermarket has dropped by almost 60%, many newcomers are wondering if Bitcoin is on its last stand and a bubble burst is imminent. This couldn’t be further from the truth as Bitcoin is an extremely volatile currency and from a historical standpoint, moves like these are expected in the market.

Bitcoin Transaction Accelerators: No More Bitcoins Stuck in Traffic

Imagine what it would be like if you’ve just sent some Bitcoins and the network is yet to confirm your transaction. And then, you realize that you’ve been patiently waiting for two whole hours and the Bitcoin appears to be stuck in an imaginary tunnel.

Your contact on the other end is beginning to question the veracity of your claim. You’ve sent them the transaction hash, but all this block and chain stuff are beginning to come off as some high sounding chicanery – after all, just how old is this technology anyway? Who is to say some enterprising upstart somewhere hasn’t found a way to “tickle” the system and this transaction right here was ground zero!

What’s happening in the world of cryptocurrency is nothing short of a revolution. The potential of Bitcoin investing is still not fully understood by even the most active players in the market.
