We would like to present you a next interview with our borrower Scott from Australia. Also check out his loan!
Bitbond: What was your first encounter in Bitcoin?
Scott: I first discovered Bitcoin in 2011, at this point they were approx $7 a piece. I was very quickly intrigued in operating outside of the confines of the Australian regulated currency system and subsequently started investigating the areas in which I could shift my personal economy to this format. I still to this day am kicking myself for selling off my bitcoin balance for the price I did, as I would have had a small fortune right now!
Bitbond: Do you feel that Bitcoin is widely known in your country, Australia? Are there places in your area that accept Bitcoin?
Scott: Yes, Bitcoin is quite well known now, and it has been for a couple of years however there is not widespread adoption for this payment method in mainstream business, moreso in the newer tech startups do you see payment accepted in Bitcoin.
Bitbond: Could you let us know a bit about your professional background?
Scott: I am a self taught web developer, and now my own business owner developing across the full stack, and providing a platform for businesses to gain insights into all things relevant to their success.
Bitbond: Could you describe your business in more detail?
Scott: My business is called Liminal Insights, you can find us here or on Facebook and Twitter in the links on our site. Our specialty is certainly Bootstrap driven websites, however we often build sites using many other frameworks and vanilla languages. We are also working on our own product to circumvent the need for mainstream currency in a very common service most readers here would utilise, however I can’t reveal any more detail on that just yet.
Bitbond: What was your motivation to start your business?
Scott: We started our business out of recognising a hole in our local marketplace, and our passion to adopt the latest technologies and bring them to the unaware consumer/business.
Bitbond: Do you have a team or do you run the business on your own?
Scott: I am the sole developer and technical director of the business, and my partner runs all administration based areas of our operation.
Bitbond: Why have you decided to apply for a loan through Bitbond?
Scott: As already mentioned I am an avid follower of removing myself from mainstream currency based services, and I feel by taking a Bitcoin loan, I am getting the help I need while also contributing to the success of the coin.
