Zynga is now accepting Bitcoin, but this is exactly the sort of thing Dogecoin is perfect for (once it matures). Also, it will finally allow players to value items correctly from different games and companies.
DISH Network announces it will start accepting Bitcoin for subscription payments, joining Overstock.com, TigerDirect, Zynga and others. Is it time to start taking Bitcoin seriously as an investment opportunity?
Zynga Accepts Bitcoin, And Savings May Be Material To Earnings
A good article to pass along to any retail establishments you want to accept Bitcoin! "In 2012 Zynga had $1.2B of gross revenue. We do not know what percentage of revenue will have the Bitcoin payment method as an option so we will just assume all of it. The credit card or PayPal fee for a $5 sale would be about $0.445 or 8.9%. Assuming Zynga has the same payment method breakdown as Reddit then we can expect this effect. Approximately $30m of annual revenue being processed by credit cards or PayPal would cost about $2.7m. Bitpay will process this amount for a flat fee of $300/month or $3,600 per year which is a cost savings of approximately 99.87%. Not bad for a few hours of a developer who is likely already on salary!" http://seekingalpha.com/article/1928121-zynga-accepts-bitcoin-and-savings-may-be-material-to-earnings

I installed Firefox on my Windows 10 machine, iPad & iPhone just a few months ago. I had been using Chrome primarily prior to that. I noticed in the Protections Dashboard that a few websites had data breaches and that some of my sensitive data has been compromised. Among these breaches websites that I did have accounts with such as Adobe & Zynga, however there was one in particular that stood out: a Russian Bitcoin forum. I am in USA and I’ve never dealt with Bitcoin. I went to the site and tried to retrieve a password for an account using my email address but no account exists under my email. Anyone have any idea what’s going on here? I apologize if this question has been asked before, I really just want to know what could have happened
Nowadays, the Bitcoin currency rate perhaps is the most unpredictable thing. All predictions about how BTC price will increase or drop are in some way similar to the weather forecasts. No one can tell what will happen to the coin tomorrow. One of the most important factors that experts rely on is the history of the currency rate over the whole period of BTC existence with its dynamics. It is essential to know what was happening to the coin as this allows you to understand what can happen to it in the future.
The first digital currency – Bitcoin – came to the world on January 9, 2009. In the same month, the creator of Bitcoin mined the first block and he also made the first financial operation in the BTC system. At the beginning of its history, the Bitcoin price was ridiculously low. The first exchange of BTC to US dollars was made in the summer of 2009 when Martti Malmi received 5.02 USD for his 5050 Bitcoins. The first official Bitcoin exchange rate to the fiat dollar was established on October 9, 2009. At that time, for 1 dollar you could buy 1 309.03 BTC. Many people now regret that they missed the opportunity to buy Bitcoin for pennies.
In 2010, events in the cryptocurrency market began to develop more intensively. The Bitcoin Market exchange was opened in February 2010, where it was possible to sell the digital coin. In May of this year, the most well-known deal with Bitcoin had happened. The programmer Laszlo Hanyecz bought 2 pizzas for 10,000 BTC. It was the first purchase using cryptocurrency in the real world. He posted a request on the crypto forum saying that he wanted to buy two pizzas. In exchange for that, he offered 10K Bitcoins that back then cost about 40 dollars. And there was a person who agreed to have this deal – it was the 19 years old Jeremy Sturdivant. Jeremy didn’t become a millionaire since then as he spent his coins to travel across the USA. As for Laszlo, he doesn’t regret about the lost millions. He was mining coins for his pleasure at that time and spent them to different non-significant things. In July of 2010, BTC price raised to 0.08 dollars. Then in November, the price went up for 50 percent. In general, 2010 was an excellent period for strengthening the position of Bitcoin. The digital currency was almost able to reach the point of one dollar.
BTC overcame the point of 1 dollar only in February of 2011. By early June, the price had grown to 10 dollars. This was a small victory for Bitcoin. Another maximum was set at the point of $31.91. In the middle of June 2011, there was a sharp drop in price: from 31.91 again to 10 dollars. The year 2011 was full of negative events. One of them happened on June 13, when a user’s electronic wallet was first hacked and 25 thousand coins were stolen from there. In a few days, some geeks hacked MtFox exchange where they got data of sixty thousand users. These events negatively affected the Bitcoin rate. It became clear that in the future the price of digital currency will be determined taking into consideration any events that occur in the market.
In 2012, the exchange rate was ranging from 8 to 12 dollars per 1 BTC. This period was also rich in significant events. One of them is that Bitcoin Central bank began its work. This bank received a license and was even recognised by European regulators.
February 22, 2013, was the day when Bitcoin began to grow again. The price reached the mark of $30. Another increase occurred at the end of January – $31.9. The upward trend continued. March 22 rate was 74.9 dollars per BTC. On the first day of April, the price went up to $100 and within another nine days, the BTC price grew to 266 dollars. But the growth did not last long. By October it was $109. The possible reason for that is the arrest of an anonymous trading platform Silk Road. Since November 2013, the price of Bitcoin began to grow anew. By the end of the month, the price exceeded all expectations and raised up to $1,200 per coin. The reason for overcoming the $1,000 point was the BTC support by Zynga game creator. Experts also noted another event that could affect the growth: one of the higher education institutions in Cyprus started accepting the Bitcoin as payment for tuition. But by the end of the first week of December, the price was 1,000 dollars. In the middle of December 2013, the BTC price dropped to 600 dollars because the China Central Bank prohibited the country’s financial institutions to maintain operations with cryptocurrency.
During the year 2014, there happened rather a significant amount of events that had an impact on the Bitcoin volatility. In the first days of January, 1 BTC was equal to 770 dollars. In February it was 700 dollars. Summer 2014 slightly strengthened the reputation of the cryptocurrency. Many experts think that it was 2014 when BTC strengthened its position in the market, in spite of the fact that Bitcoin price was low – by the end of the year it settled in at around 310 dollars. In 2014 investors began to consider Bitcoin as a potential investment as Bitcoin price predictions seemed quite attractive.
At the beginning of 2015, the BTC price started rising: with 177 dollars in January to 281 dollars to March. The number of people who were trading Bitcoin increased – there were about 160,000 people was buying and selling BTC on exchanges by August 2015. In one period of 2015 the Bitcoin price grew up to 500 dollars, but to the end of 2015, it dropped to about 350 USD.
In 2016, Japan declared Bitcoin as a currency and allowed to use it to pay for goods and services. South Africa was the next who did the same. In April 2016, BTC rate went up and reached $454 per coin. By the end of May, 1 BTC was already worth $600. The reason for the price increase might be the growth of the number of transactions in the Chinese market. The highest price in 2016 was in December – $950 for one Bitcoin.
The year of 2017 was an incredible period in respect of BTC price. It started with $1,000 for 1 coin. Already in June, it was $2,600. By the beginning of September, the price jumped to $5,000 per 1 BTC. On December 17, the Bitcoin price achieved a record and was over 20,000 US dollars. How did this happen? Here are some reasons that experts point due to the growth of Bitcoin price:
In 2017 social media broadcasted a lot of information about Bitcoin and the blockchain system;
China resumed cashout of bitcoins from the Chinese cryptocurrency exchanges;
In December 2017, the United States officially allowed trading futures for Bitcoin;
The number of companies and people who were buying BTC increased as they considered Bitcoin the profitable investment and etc.
However, later in December, the price plummeted from 20 000 dollars to 12 000 dollars. Experts had different reasons including that one of the first cryptocurrency creators sold out all his digital savings and called such investments too risky.
During the first 4 months of 2018, the price of BTC dropped below 7,000 USD. These negative dynamics were quite logical because the rise is always followed by the fall. For the first time since October 2017, the Bitcoin price fell below 6,000 dollars. On November 25, the price of Bitcoin fell even lower – $3,676 per 1 BTC. By mid-December, the bitcoin rate fell by almost 80% to its yearly rate, the price was $3,200.
What can we expect in 2019? What Bitcoin price predictions do crypto experts have? People hope that 2019 will bring new opportunities for Bitcoin and also other cryptocurrencies. Some investors and crypto enthusiasts predict that the BTC price will grow to 40 – 50,000 USD by the end of 2019. One of them, John McAfee, is assured that the price will rise to 1 million dollars by the end of 2020. He even had a bet that he posted in his Twitter saying that he would eat his “love muscle” if his BTC price prediction will not come true. There may be a number of factors that can influence the BTC price in 2019. They are:
Nasdaq, the world’s second largest exchange plans to launch futures for Bitcoin;
Coming out of the first crypto-ETP in the world;
and many other unpredictable factors that can change the price of Bitcoin.
As it was said before, Bitcoin price predictions are almost like the weather forecast – you never know what price it will have tomorrow. If you think about investing in BTC or any other cryptocurrency you should follow its rate at present time but never forget to compare it to the past. But please, don’t bet to eat any of your body parts 🙂 Feel free to follow our updates and news onTwitter,Facebook,Reddit,TelegramandBitcoinTalk.

Bitcoin is improved the idea that cash is any object, or any kind of document, accepted as settlement for items as well as solutions and payment of financial debts in a provided nation or socio-economic collection. Bitcoin uses cryptography, or mathematical formulas, to manage the creation as well as transfer of cash, instead of depending on governments and also main financial authorities. Transfers for finances, sales, purchases or any various other approaches of payment can be refined by anyone, making use of a desktop computer, mobile phone, tablet computer, or laptop. This is all feasible without the requirement for a financial institution to work as an intermediary or taping representative. Nuv Mining Developed in 2009, Bitcoin is a digital money introduced as open resource software program by an MIT trainee called Satoshi Nakamoto. There is much conjecture as to whether Satoshi is an actual person, or a collection of individuals making use of a pseudonym. Bitcoin are produced by a process termed mining, in which specialized computer full complex mathematic equations and also are compensated with a block of bitcoins. This procedure takes around 10 minutes and the current block rewards 25 bitcoins. The block reward will certainly be halved to 12.5 bitcoins in 2017 as well as again around every 4 years thereafter. By 2140 there will be approximately 21 million bitcoins in existence. nuvmining This week has revealed a speedy of task with company owner of all red stripes getting on track with Bitcoin. From small companies in New Orleans, to the Sacramento Kings of the NBA approving Bitcoin for ticket sales and also team materiel, to gambling enterprises in Las vega, Bitcoin is popping up all over. Venture Capitalist Chris Dixon thinks Bitcoin might get to $100,000 if it ends up being the main means of ecommerce (Wired ). The Chief Executive Officer of a major online merchant was priced quote as claiming "Various other stores will certainly not wish to miss out, Bitcoin market is growing by 30% per month." This very same seller saw a 5% boost in sales the very first day it accepted Bitcoin. Zynga Games, among the largest on the internet gaming business, in charge of Farmville, Castleville, and a host of others also began accepting Bitcoin for in game monetary transactions. After the five Large Financial institutions said no to cash from cannabis dispensaries as well as growers, Colorado's lawful cannabis dispensary industry turned to Bitcoin (ZeroHedge ). The Internal Revenue Service has also recently introduced a project that enables tax obligations to be paid with Bitcoin. There has actually been Bitcoin ATM MACHINE's appearing in cities such as Vancouver, Ottawa, and a Bratislava Slovakia mall. Just recently, the New York City Bitcoin ATM was put on hold until a public hearing under the territory of the New York State Division of Financial Solutions can be held. After flirting with the $1,000 worth following the New Year, Bitcoin has actually been gradually trading at around $950 on the Mt. Gox exchange over the last fortnight and is being well supported by the 50 day relocating average indicating Bitcoin is still distinctly favorable. This was shocking to most experts who thought the governing information appearing of China, India, and Russia would certainly rupture Bitcoins bubble. However, Michael Robinson, with over thirty years of experience in market analysis, believes the majority of experts are wrong. He recommends that the strong improvement we saw in very early December, coupled with the consistent assistance of the 50 day moving average, shows Bitcoin is an exceptionally healthy and balanced market, as well as need to only remain to raise in value.
Here is a list of deals I’ve used myself that you can use to put extra money in your pocket💰 ROBINHOOD (Free stock up to $500) - Robinhood is a popular app that allows users to trade stocks for free – no minimum account balance, no commissions, no maintenance fees. Create your free account using the link and you’ll get a free random stock like Apple, Zynga, or Facebook. Keep it or sell it for quick cash. PERKSY - Perksy is a survey app with nice payouts and a fun vibe. I’ve made about $50 on the app with little effort. RAKUTEN/EBATES
If you ever shop online, you’re missing out by not using Rakuten. They give you cashback for shopping as you usually do. If you use the link, you’ll get $30 in bonus cash. (I’ve made about $300 from this so far). This works both online and in-store.
Recent cashback examples: Sephora: 8%, Finish Line: 9%, Under Armour: 9% GAP: 8% and more
Tired of cash sitting in the bank earning 0.01%? Earn more with this free, FDIC-insured bank app that pays increasing interest and stops inflation from eroding your cash. This one may be worth it if you can get to the higher interest tiers (around 4% last time I checked). If you’re not interested in that, I suggest checking out Ally. They are a solid online bank.
Get automatic cashback at stores like CVS, Target, Sephora, PetSmart, and more in Bitcoin or Cash with your existing cards. This is completely passive. It’s earned me around $50 these past couple months.
Awards you points for walking into stores like Walmart and Marshall’s. You can use the points for giftcards to places including Walmart and Amazon. I like Shopkick because you can turn a day walking around shopping into gift cards. You can also earn more points by scanning product barcodes and completing other offers. I usually stick to just getting the points for walking into the stores.
Near the bottom of the page on a mobile browser, you'll see a blue banner advertising a $40 reward card for a test drive. Click the banner, fill out the form, schedule a test drive, and show up to claim your gift card.
There is a similar process for others including Subaru. Visit their site, enter your zip code, and check out the inventory. You should get a pop-up for your free Visa giftcard.
States return millions of dollars worth of unclaimed property a year. Unclaimed property typically consists of unclaimed money in accounts that have sat dormant for more than a year. Every state has its own abandoned property site but a good place to start is MissingMoney.com. It’s very simple to search there. If anything comes up, continue the search/filing on your states gov website. Example: California’s is https://ucpi.sco.ca.gov/UCP/Default.aspx.
When I checked for my family, we found $300+ in two accounts from over 10 years ago. Its worth a shot to check!
/slavelabour: The sub is used to get things done cheaply. I’ve made a couple hundred bucks there helping people with their resumes, excel, and other random things. GoodRx
