Having met or read about a few people in the bitcoin community, I have come to think it's a very relevant question and you can better weight their opinions having an idea of how many Bitcoins they hold (or do not hold.)"Never ask anyone for their opinion [...] Just ask them what they have -or don't have- in their portfolio"
We offer a payment solution for content providers that allows them to charge tiny amounts for different types of content on their site. Our first implementation is via a WordPress plugin and support for other CMS will follow. What makes us special is that readers can use their balance across different websites, without signup or download.1) Can you describe your business in short terms?
ChangeTip are about tipping and donations, we are a payment mechanism for digital goods. Prices are fixed by the content merchant and you have to pay before you can retrieve content. ChangeTip requires you to link accounts from social networks, where we work completely without login.2) What is the difference between Changetip? I guess that is your biggest competitor?
Yes, we received about €260K in funding so far and there will be more funding rounds. Coinsilium, one of our investors participated in this AMA a few days ago. They named us as one of their most promising investments, which makes us terribly proud. We are very happy working with them and they helped us a lot.3) Did you recieve funding in the past or do you want that at all ?
Oh, that one had to come.. We will be integrated on many, many websites, we will be a household brand for people spending small amounts online and we will be available all around the world. Our payment technology will be used in the background of many applications that go beyond content, for example in the internet of things or machine to machine payments.4) Where do you see your company in 5 years?
Very cool about your hitchhiking, traveling experience! What countries did you go to? How did you pass the time when traveling besides lots of thinking? Reading books? Learning languages?
During my non-profit time I travelled around Europe and Asia for about 10 years continuously, without ever flying. On my overland trip from Central Europe to almost everywhere in East Asia I took countless trains, buses, ferries, I hitch-hiked, cycled and “hitch-biked”. I had a looot of time to think about connecting the people along my travels, for example by alternative monetary systems, and it was around that time in 2011 when I discovered bitcoin.
Software and services: Stable, reliable blockchain APIs! We tried them all, and they all failed us at one point or another. We are aware that this often due to attacks on the network, but as a response we are currently migrating to our own Insight API cluster. Better APIs will result in better apps, meaning more adoption.Having worked in the Bitcoin ecosystem since 2011, what do you think is most needed in terms of software and services around Bitcoin, as well as legislative and political decisions for Bitcoin and other crypto currencies to become more useful to (or rather more widely-used by) the common people?
Sure!Do you mind to tell us which percentage of your net worth and/or liquid assets you hold in Bitcoins ?
In total it's 50 countries so far, mainly in Eurasia. The most recent overland Asia trip went like this: Turkey, Bulgaria, Romania, Ukraine, Russia (for many kilometres!) , Mongolia, China, South Korea, Japan, South Korea again, flight 1, Hongkong & Macao, Laos, Thailand, Indonesia, flight 2, Philippines, flight 3, China again, flight 4, South Korea, flight 5 back home. I spent about 2 years on that trip alone I think.Very cool about your hitchhiking, traveling experience! What countries did you go to?
