Author : Bitcoin.com Bitcoin Core is less usable as money due to much higher fees and delayed transaction times. The Core team has also expressed an interest in keeping these fees high since they view BTC as a “store-of-value” and not something to be transacted on a daily basis. In contrast, Bitcoin Cash’s transaction fees cost pennies and payments can be validated even with zero confirmations. These facts make BCH the ideal cryptocurrency for sending and receiving money anywhere in the world.) “Bitcoin is a remarkable cryptographic achievement. The ability to create something which is not duplicable in the digital world has enormous value. The Bitcoin architecture, literally the ability to having these ledgers that can’t be replicated is an amazing dvancement.” – Eric Schmidt, Executive Chairman of Google, March 2014 at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jRrEZbKm3mk. With Bitcoin Core’s price increasing over the years and reaching billions of dollars at https://price.bitcoin.com/ in market capitalization, all kinds of people see its value and appeal. This brings out both the good and bad in human nature. Unfortunately, with the bad comes scammers. The bottom line is scammers also want to profit somehow from Bitcoin Core, but through nefarious means. This typically involves targeting unprepared victims, who end up losing their BTC as a . . .
A quality VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) experience enables business owners to benefit from more than just low call rates. “Cost is the single biggest driver for companies looking to adopt VoIP but they shouldn't stop at rands and cents reasons to go the IP route,” says Rad Jankovic, CEO of independent telco Otel Communications. “Upgrading to VoIP means SMEs and enterprise users alike can deploy hosted services and virtual switchboards, saving money on hardware as well as on calls,” explains Mr Jankovic. He adds that using VoIP systems to their fullest potential will also have employee productivity benefits as staff get to grips with the plethora of available VoIP value-added services. Examples include call forwarding, group calling, and video calling, to name a few. However, cautions Mr Jankovic, an outstanding VoIP experience depends on much more than just super-fast broadband. “Internet speed is the enabler like smooth asphalt greatly enhances the driving experience, but is not the only factor determining what one can do with the car. To really take VoIP to the next level, there are a few additional elements that can be rolled-out to help your business use VoIP to its fullest potential: Any good VoIP system worth its salt will come with auto provisioning which simply means the system really is “plug and play”. Instead of installing and setting-up a VoIP phone on every employee desk, auto provisioning means VoIP hardware can automatically get their configuration settings from a server that has already been set-up. These systems mean you don’t need to have experts come in and install each and every phone’s settings - simply plug in the phone with the correct cables provided, and off you go! Installing VoIP apps on mobile devices mean efficiency improvements can start right from the get go. These apps enable calls to be made and answered from any mobile device that the employee happens to have on them at any point in time. Now laptops, tablets and . . .
SOUTH Africa U23 champion Julian Jessop continued his dream month when he beat off the challenge of Tyronne White in a dash for the line at the 60km mountain bike race at the Husqvarna Classic Mid-Illovo MTB Challenge and Trail Run on Sunday. The 20-year-old Jessop - who is coming off a dream 12th position finish at the recent Absa Cape Epic and so claimed the prestigious African Jersey title with Matthys Beukes - and White approached the finish together. However the young PYGA Eurosteel rider had too much firepower for his more experienced challenger and powered across to line to win in a time of 2:32:08, two seconds ahead of White. Quattro ROAG Series leader Andrew Johnson claimed third position just 29-seconds further back and his third position in Sunday's second leg of the series, combined with his win in the opening leg at Wartburg in February, ensures the Ballito resident holds top spot in the race for South Africa's richest prize for a mountain bike series. David Low and Brennan Anderson rounded out the top five. In the women's 60km race, Christie Leigh Hearder made her first appearance at a Quattro ROAG Series event of the year and notched up a convincing five-minute win to put the pressure on series leader Andrea de Boer. De Boer was second and keeps a firm grasp on the series lead going into the third leg at Karkloof in May, but will be aware that Hearder is lurking. One of the most intriguing dices of the day was the women's 40km Safire MTB that saw matric pupilÂ Tiffany Keep edge out Frances Janse van Rensburg by two minutes, while schoolboy Travis Stedman was clear winner in the men's 40km race. In the trail runs, Derek Wasserfall cruised to victory with Thierry Pletinckx just over two minutes off the pace in the 16km Farmers Agri-Care race while Mark Mackenzie was third. Mackenzie's third, when combined with his third position in the opening leg, is enough to move him to the top of the standings in the Quattro ROAG Series. Sarah . . .
A new, digital asset exchange – ChainEX – has been launched on the world wide web. “ChainEX is the only digital asset exchange that provides a platform for South Africans to buy, sell or trade up to 20 different digital assets - using the South African rand as the default fiat-buying currency for some.” Director Otto Lessing said ChainEX’s mission is to provide a world-class platform to benefit every South African by providing them with easy access to global crypto markets. Recent statistics, he said, indicated that SA topped the list of countries with the most Google searches for the cryptocurrency Bitcoin. Slovenia is second, followed by Austria, the Netherlands and Australia. Bitcoin is also the most searched term on Investopedia, the world’s largest financial education website. ChainEX is playing its part in meeting the world’s ever-increasing appetite for cryptocurrencies, said Lessing. “The increased interest in cryptocurrencies comes as no surprise as more and more people are looking to get involved in this exciting opportunity.” After starting 2017 at a market cap of USD17.7-billion, according to CoinMarketCap, he said the value of the cryptocurrency market surged by more than 1 200 per cent during the course of the year. However, he warned, the increased amount of interest also had a downside. “Digital asset exchanges are increasingly struggling with the massive influx of users, which results in them experiencing frustrating delays when trying to access or transact on the platforms. “ChainEX strives to alleviate this problem by providing a trading platform that is secure, user-friendly and reliable with a well-tested, highly scalable matching engine.” Plans include expanding its asset base by introducing more digital asset currencies to its trading platform, thereby providing South African users with a better experience and more exposure to the world of cryptocurrencies. “There is also a possibility to present a platform . . .

6 Reasons Why King Shaka Would Have Been A Successful Entrepreneur. Former President, Thabo Mbeki said it best “I am an African. I owe my being to the hills and the valleys, the mountains and the glades, the rivers, the deserts, the trees, the flowers, the seas and the ever-changing seasons that define the face of our native land……….A human presence among all these, a feature on the face of our native land thus defined, I know that none dare challenge me when I say - I am an African.” As an African Entrepreneur my homeland, this great continent informs, inspires and anchors my business vision, strategy, processes and ethics. It is for this reason that I have decided to write my first article for 2015 on the Entrepreneurial ways of the mighty King Shaka. King Shaka kaSenzangakhona also known as Shaka Zulu is one of the greatest military leaders in African history and perhaps in all of history. There is controversy around his methods and the strictness with which he trained his troops, but in many ways, he improved warfare methods forever. Born in 1787 in what is now South Africa’s KwaZulu-Natal province, he died in 1828, but his legacy lives on as a motivation figure to Africans across the continent. I have studied various accounts on the life and times of this influential warrior king and I could not help, but notice that his personality traits are very much similar to those displayed by today’s highly successful Entrepreneurs. Here are 6 reasons why I think King Shaka would have been a ground-breaking Entrepreneur if he was alive today: 1. Perseverance Born out of wedlock to an unranked woman, Nandi KaBhebhe and Senzangakhona kaJama, a minor chief of what was then a small Zulu tribe, Shaka was a humiliated and discredited child. Fleeing from humiliation at the hands of the Zulus he and his mother took refuge in the court of a neighbouring chieftain the eLangeni. There too, they were constantly harassed and he grew up quickly learning to persevere, . . .
If your child is in Grade R this year, they will matriculate in 2030 and be thrust into a world so different to the one we are living in today that unless we prepare them for the future unseen, the current rapid developments in technology will cause economies to slip behind and inequality to widen. We are talking about the Fourth Industrial Revolution, and with the rise of universal broadband access, artificial intelligence and robotics, it’s right on our doorstep. But is the African child being prepared for it? We stand on the brink of a technological revolution that will fundamentally alter the way we live, work and relate to one another – across every industry in every country. It will be characterised by the blending of innovations across physical, digital and biological spheres affecting production, management and government. Minister Rob Davies from the Department of Trade and Industry says: “We are entering an era, and probably are already in it, in which the premium for innovation has become significantly raised. While innovation had always been important, it is now even more important. We need to prepare ourselves as a country. Industry 4.0 will cause disruptive change in manufacturing, not just incremental change.” Afrika Tikkun’s Early Childhood Development (ECD) expert, Vanessa Mentor, adds: “Afrika Tikkun’s main objective is to develop and uplift young people in underprivileged communities, and we achieve this with education. We believe that every young person deserves the opportunity to be the best that they can be, and how would we achieve this if we, ourselves, are not moving with the times? Thus, it is one of our early childhood development priorities to prepare our children for the fourth industrial revolution. It is absolutely essential that from the earliest age, young people learn ICT skills and are taught to navigate their way through basic coding and all things digital. More than this however is teaching innovation as a value, and a . . .
Starting or running a small new business can be an exciting yet daunting prospect, and there are many hurdles which owners must overcome to ensure that their business survives for the long-term. Primary among the business survivalist toolkit is a healthy cashflow. The saying goes “turnover is vanity, profit is sanity, but cash flow is reality.” Without being able to pay staff and suppliers on time, your business will not survive very long. At the core of a healthy cash-flow lies the function of credit management. It sounds quite simple if you think about at first – you just need to make sure that clients pay their bills on time, right? “Not quite that simple,” says Frank Knight, CEO of Debtsource, which operates as a specialist b2b credit management company. “The first problem faced by most new business owners is that they are so keen on proving their model works that they will focus on turnover, almost at all costs,” says Knight. He says owners need to overcome the hurdle to understand that a sale does not equal cash flow, and that a sale is not good for your business until it has been paid. “South Africa is littered with companies that went under while making a profit and the simple thread running through the majority is they were not able to convert that profit to cash. Just think about that: you fool yourself thinking that the business is growing nicely and that profits are on the up, yet it is exactly those unpaid sales that create your demise.” And late payments from customers are almost as bad as not being paid at all, especially so for really large deals. “We have seen some really big companies go bust, or nearly go bust, as a result of receiving a significant order,” comments Knight. He says that businesses typically require additional resources to fill big orders and when their large new customer does not pay them on time, it creates a massive ripple effect back onto their cash-flow. The problem is exacerbated when the small business owner does . . .
A wide range of top-quality wheels manufactured by Italian company Gipiemme will soon be available in South Africa, following a deal brokered by Positive Sports Solutions. The South African company, who recently signed an agreement to bring the Westfalia bike carrier to South Africa, has been appointed the sole distributor of Gipiemme wheels in the country. Stock from Italy will be available for the local market by the end of May. Furthermore, a spokesman for Positive Sports Solutions said their agreement extended to all the countries in the Southern Africa Development Community, which includes a total of 16 nations. Stretching back to 1964 when it was founded in Milan, the Italian cycling manufacturer initially focused on producing the different components for bicycles; such as rims, wheels, saddles and handlebars. In time, Gipiemme began to produce its own complete bicycle group sets, while continuing to revolutionise the wheels industry in cycling. In the 1980s, it produced the first wheel made entirely of carbon and a decade later it completely changed the traditional spoke wheel by creating the Tecno 416. The bike components by Gipiemme are entirely produced in Italy in its factory located in Loria in the province of Treviso. South African consumers will be able to select from a wide variety of wheels produced by the Italian experts, which include the clincher and tubular products. Covering mountain-biking and road racing, the Positive Sports Solutions spokesman said the most popular types of wheels would be stocked in South Africa. "However, consumers in our region will have access to the full variety of products Gipiemme generates and once an order is placed they can expect delivery within seven days." He added that the superiority of the brand would be a major bonus for South African cyclists, given the experience the company has gained in many years of producing cycling components. "Marketing of the products will be done . . .
24.com and The SpaceStation tee-up for the future With an ever-changing digital landscape continuing to evolve at a rapid pace in South Africa, 24.com has made some strategic changes to its organisational structure – integrating its sales division, The SpaceStation, with its publishing business unit, and establishing a new commercial unit focusing on data-driven sales technology. Andreij Horn, CEO of 24.com, says two tangible benefits result from these changes: “We ensure clarity of focus and faster turn-around times for clients by integrating the full value chain of our market-leading publishing division into one business unit, and we establish a data-driven commercial unit that will take our current abilities to segment audiences and deliver targeted advertising campaigns to the next level”. Gustav Goosen, who has been Head of The SpaceStation since 2013, has been appointed as Head: Conversion Science in a newly created division called 24.com AI. This new team brings together a team of highly skilled data scientists and engineers, specialized in machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) with the specific mandate to extend the data-driven engineering competencies 24.com has developed to improve reader engagement, to commercial conversion. “With his nearly 20 years’ experience in digital advertising, Gustav is the ideal person to lead the team developing our next-generation advertising platform and the new opportunities we want to offer our advertising clients,” says Horn.

This alignment brings the sales, business management, operations and publishing teams much closer together to deliver an enhanced and streamlined service to clients and agencies.
