Read the interesting interview below:
Bitbond: Thank you very much for taking the time to talk to us. Could you start off by telling us what your relationship to bitcoin is and how you first heard of it?
I heard about bitcoin in the early stages back in 2009. I was employed in the IT industry and always made sure I kept myself updated with latest developments in the industry.
I was very skeptical that bitcoin would actually take off and unfortunately I didn’t bother jumping on board.
Not investing back when bitcoins were a few cents is probably one of my biggest financial regrets.
I don’t think anyone could have ever predicted the amount of growth bitcoin was going to experience. Most of the so called experts and financial guru’s including people like Warren Buffet were adamant that bitcoin would crash and burn.
These days I am more than confident that bitcoin is here to stay and it will continue to grow in value. Whilst I understand it will continue to be somewhat unpredictable and volatile, I still believe it will steadily increase in value year on year.
Bitbond: Cool. What do you think the future holds for bitcoin? Is it the modern-day equivalent of the internet or will it fall flat on its face?
As mentioned above I am very confident that bitcoin is here to stay. More and more people are becoming aware that they can conduct business outside of the traditional banking systems. This will lead to more businesses accepting bitcoin payments. Bitcoin ATM’s will become will likely become more available that they currently are.
I would even go as far as saying that bitcoin and crypto currency in general will start to become a fully functional trading system that will compete and hopefully one day replace the current banking model.
I’m sure most of people already know that the traditional banking system is probably one of the most corrupt and ruthless industries in the world. This is primarily due to the fact that it is controlled by the elite and they would do anything to maintain control.
Bitcoin on the other hand is not controlled, it’s an open source and it has no centralized control. Yes, there are some people who have accumulated an insane amount of bitcoins but these are generally the early adopters of bitcoin, they believed in it and jumped on board early and it is because of them that bitcoin is what it is today. So Kudos to them.
Bitbond: What do you hope to achieve with your loan, and why did you choose Bitbond?
My loan will be used as working capital to re-invest into my online ventures. I have spent the past year and half testing and tweaking various traffic generation platforms and methods. This was a time consuming and very costly exercise. I have not managed to find a winning formula that would provide around 400% return on investment.
The problem is that I have used up all the funds that I had initially budgeted for this project, which is why I have applied for a Bitbond loan. I decided to use Bitbond mainly because of their exceptional customer service as well how easy their platform is to use. Whenever I have contacted their support team the response and service I get is far superior to other similar services.
Bitbond: What are the benefits of a bitcoin loan compared to a conventional equivalent like a bank loan?
Traditional banks often lack the foresight and vision to invest in the “potential” of a project and tend to base their decision on the earning history of a project or business.
They are also far stricter when it comes to criteria and often require some sort of collateral. A bitcoin loan on the other hand removes many of these barriers and makes funding more accessible to people who would normally get turned down by a bank.
Bitbond: What is your favourite feature on Bitbond? What features do you think are missing?
My favourite feature is no doubt the support section of Bitbond. As mentioned earlier it’s far superior to other similar platforms. Perhaps adding a live chat feature or instant message system for basic support queries could be a good idea.
Bitbond: As a business owner or an employee, does your place of work accept bitcoin? If not, what do are the chances of that changing?
Yes, I always offer my clients the option of paying with Bitcoin. I prefer to get payment via bitcoin. Unfortunately, I would say only about 10% or less opt for the option.
Bitbond: What would you want potential investors to know about your loan?
I would like them to know that it is virtually risk free and an absolutely solid investment, all payments will be made on time every month. Their investment would be highly appreciated.
