The 10 benefits of paying with cryptocurrencies
You can pay with cryptocurrency on the Mobisun website.
Mobisun has chosen this because paying with cryptocurrency offers a number of advantages compared to paying with fiat money.
Cheap and instant worldwide payments
Cryptocurrency is a new payment method based on blockchain technology.
By means of smart cryptography or encryption unique and divisible digital currencies are created.
The transaction costs of cryptocurrencies are low and payments can take place almost immediately and worldwide.
You can take cryptocurrency anywhere
Cryptocurrencies can be stored in a digital wallet (wallet) that you can manage from your computer, your phone or that you can store in a hardware wallet (a kind of USB stick). This can be done with the Ledger Nano S.
This hardware wallet offers the possibility to take your cryptocurrencies anywhere.
An alternative is to store your cryptocurrency on a credit card. The company TenX is developing this.
Cryptocurrency is your own property
As long as you know the password / passphrase of your digital wallet, the crypto coins are completely under your management and ownership and no one else can use it.
This is in contrast to the money you put on a bankaccount, which from a legal point of view is no longer yours. When you deposit money into your bank account, you become a creditor of the bank, that manages your money on your behalf.
In transactions that you carry out with ‘your money’, the bank acts as an intermediary between you and a third party. In regard to these transactions, you trust that the bank will perform the transfer as you intended.
It works differently with cryptocurrencies. You immediately do business with other people without the intervention of a bank or third party. Transactions with cryptocurrencies are peer-to-peer transactions or transactions from people to people.
Banking the unbanked
Approximately 2 billion people worldwide do not have access to a bank account. Many of these people do have a mobile phone.
Crytocurrencies and blockchain technology make it possible for these people to carry out financial transactions via biometrics and a mobile phone and thus increase their prosperity.
Integrity of transactions
The trust for a transaction with cryptocurrencies is not derived from an institution as a bank but from the computer code of the specific cryptocurrency. A frequently heard term in the crypto world is therefore: “trust the code”.
Confidence in the code is greater as more people use the specific blockchain and / or more security guarantees or better encryption are built into the code.
Sometimes the duration or history of a blockchain is also a guarantee of the trust that users derive from the blockchain.
High level of privacy
In order to be able to execute transactions through a bank, you are obliged to provide extensive personal information. For payments with cryptocurrency you do not have to provide personal data and the transactions take place anonymously.
The degree of privacy and anonymity varies from cryptocurrency to cryptocurrency. For example, the crypto coins Monero, Dash, CloakCoin and Verge are known for their focus on privacy.
Full 24/7 traceability of transactions
Each transaction within the blockchain is verified by a decentralized network of devices (called nodes), stamped on time and linked to the previous transaction, creating a chronological series of transactions.
The register of these successive and irreversible transactions (also called the blockchain) is continuously synchronized and updated on all devices participating in the blockchain network.
This makes it impossible that a third party manipulates the payment or the sender reverses the payment.
Everyone can also continuously verify whether or not a transaction has taken place.
These transactions can be followed anonymously by everyone via the so-called block explorer.
Divisible over as many crypto bank accounts as you want
Within your crypto wallet you can create as many account numbers or addresses as you want.
This can be useful when you decide not to have too much crypto in your pocket.
Suppose you have € 1,000 worth of Bitcoin. You can leave this at one bitcoin address, but if you want to pay with your mobile phone, it is useful to use an app on your mobile to create a separate bitcoin address or account number to which you transfer € 100 for example.
Then you can spend up to € 100 on Bitcoin via your mobile phone.
You can also make your own account numbers for i.e. fixed expenses, groceries, holidays or for the children.
In short, with cryptocurrencies you are your own banker.
Cryptocurrencies: money as DNA
Normally thousands of devices (or nodes) participate in the blockchain, so it is not a problem when one or more devices / servers (temporarily) disappear from the network.
Due to this decentralized nature of the blockchain network, it is virtually impossible for a central authority to intervene with or suspend a blockchain project.
The blockchain register can therefore be regarded as a type of DNA in which a single server / node contains the entire blockchain.
This is somewhat comparable to our human body, where the DNA of each cell carries the blueprint of the entire body.
Ok, so we have new technology where we can perform transactions of value between each other without the intervention of a bank, that are unique, irreversible and verifiable. But there’s more….
Crypto ensures fast, transparent and secure handling of smart contracts
Blockchain technology makes it possible to digitize virtually every 3D object or service and to put its value in the blockchain.
For example, shares, cars or houses can be placed in the blockchain and traded via automatic contracts (smart contracts).
As a result, the intervention of third parties such as banks, notaries and advisors is no longer nessary and transactions can take place faster and cheaper.
The same applies to services such as loans, insurances or the tracking of goods.
This may be desirable, for example, to trace the origins and treatments of our food.
You can also manage your personal identity safely in the blockchain and use it for example when purchasing airline tickets, traveling by public transport, checking in at a hotel, verifying the age when purchasing alcohol, etc.
Finally, smart contracts can be used to fully automate government tasks, for example when collecting taxes, issuing permits, paying subsidies and when holding local, regional or national elections.
The advantage of the use of blockchain technology by the government is that all transactions can be followed via the blockchain.
So everyone can see exactly what goes in and what comes out.
As a result, the government apparatus can become a lot more transparent.
Cryptocurrency is based on trust
In 1944, during the Bretton Woods conference, the American dollar was appointed world reserve currency.
The dollar would be “as good as gold” because it would be backed by gold at all times.
Because America needed a lot of money in the 1960s to finance the Vietnam War, the moneypress was turned on.
As a result, the gold price could no longer be kept artificially low.
In 1971 the situation became untenable and US President Nixon decided to temporarily let go of the gold backing of the dollar.
That temporary decoupling of the backing of the dollar by gold still continues today.
Since 1971, the money presses are operating at full speed and the money (that is created out of nothing) is being used by governments for, among other things, financing wars, surveillance / intelligence programs and black projects.
Also the money supply in the form of central bank reserves has more than doubled since the financial crisis of 2008 (FED from 870 billion USD in 2008 to 4,500 billion USD in 2015 and ECB from 2,000 billion EUR in 2008 to 4,500 billion EUR in 2017).
This growth in the money supply can not continue indefinitely. More so because FIAT money is not materially backed by anything than trust.
An unbridled growth of FIAT money will ultimately erode our prosperity.
Cryptocurrencies are a possible solution for this. It is decentralized money, which is covered by blockchain technology and by a growing global community. Moreover, the money supply within crypto is often maximized (there are and will be a maximum of 21 million Bitcoins only).
Crypto currencies provide a technical solution to problems with privacy, the unbanked, international payments, high transaction and service costs, bureaucracy and electoral fraud. Blockchain technology eliminates the intermediary (middleman) and allows people to do business directly, globally and in a cheap way.
