[•] Bitcoin – The Future of Banking?

_DSC4960

Are Banks closing or going insolvent? Last Friday two banks closed in Italy. I recently watched a documentary on the 1929 crash and banks closed with hundreds of thousands of people loosing their life savings just like the citizens in Italy loosing their life savings. Technology is advancing so fast that you can be your own bank and hold your own wealth. Transfers can be easily done via your smart phone and PC and large cities now have Bitcoin ATM’s. The head of the Commonwealth Bank recently conducted a million dollar investigation into Blockchain technology and said “If we don’t evolve we die”.

Do you trust your bank?

In the photo is a Trezor physical digital wallet where you can store your digital Cryptocurrency just like the local bank stores digital currency on their old antiquated systems. The future of banking is here now. Exciting times are ahead for the future of mankind.

This is the new digital currency frontier. Will you embrace it?

I have noticed many people in different industries (even Photographers) around the world now accepting digital cryptocurrency as a form of payment for their services. You no longer have to wait several days for a transfer as a transaction can be instantly done between a two professionals. Many years ago I used to receive monthly payments into my bank account because the company I worked for used to earn the interest on holding my wages before making the transfer. This applies for all the banks where they lend out your deposit to other areas for investment (Mind you bad investments) What if the bank you hold your deposit have miss managed your life savings and have not told you but day after day week after week you keep propping up your bank to one day poof it is all gone.

Thank you to the tech minded people for leading the way and opening our eyes to innovation in payment services and to help cut out the big greedy Donald duck bankers. Say goodbye to the Snake Oil Salesmen at the local bank asking if you want another home loan or credit card that sucks you in at ridiculous interest. Say goodbye to all those hidden fees and $2 dollar fees on cash withdrawals at every ATM. Say hello to the future where you can be independent free and alive.

is it time to become your own bank?.

You have a chance to win 1 Million Dollars using your camera.

Do you know you have more of a chance to win 1 Million Dollars by taking a photograph with your camera than you would if playing Lotto.

The odds of winning Lotto are 100,000,000 to 1 and the odds of capturing a million dollar photograph are much closer than you think.

I am a very strong believer if you carry your camera with you everyday and an event happens or somebody super famous happens to walk by doing odd you can easily capture a frame with your camera and that split second of luck could bring you a windfall of something big.

Part of this principle is based on the saying the best camera is the one that’s with you but say you get a photo with your smart phone that image is less likely to get a good offer of dollars compared to a digital SLR photograph.

After many years of shooting I still believe that it is possible to take a million dollar photograph (It hasn’t happened yet for me but it might happen to you) and I’ve thought carrying that camera by my side everyday increases those odds.

As far fetched as it sounds to take a million dollar photograph have you ever heard that one photographer sold a picture of a potatoe for a large sum of money.  I’ll admit I have never photographed a potatoe but after hearing that story it is definitely at the top of my list to photograph one or maybe two 😉

Now if the odds of winning Lotto are 100,000,000 to 1 then the odds of taking a million dollar photograph surely has to be 500,000 to 1.

Here is the key to taking a million dollar photograph with 5 simple variations to help calculate your odds. They come down to your actions and a few factors;

1) How often you leave the house.
2) How many photographs you take per year.
3) The type of camera and lens combination you use.
4) Location of where you take the photograph. i.e outback of Timbuktu would decrease the odds Verse someone smack in the middle of a specific city.
5) A blessing of good old Irish Luck.

As funny as this all sounds if you were in Timbuktu you might get a photo of a Yeti and win big or you could be in the city and capture a famous person but at the end of the day just remember having that camera with you everyday could pay off big time or just pay off your camera.

Now where are the potatoes in the pantry.

Oh your still here: Write down below in the comments what you think your odds are.
