By adopting the cryptocurrencies as another payment method on e-Commerce websites, offering the users the chance to buy with virtual coins, people will realize they don’t need banks or a national currency to give value to something and exchange it.
These kind of arrangements will help take digital coins out of the speculative world and become a real trading system, in which a bank mediation won’t be required to complete a transaction.
The digital era and its new technologic trends are revolutionizing the world’s economy, and the sophisticated decentralized system of the so called digital coins is increasingly gaining strength, speeding up towards a virtualization that seems unavoidable in the interconnected world we live in.
That’s why the e-Commerce platforms are the best way to promote this system, offering tools to help businesses and companies to add this new option to the existing ones, and increase the customers and places where these currencies can be used, as well as the possibility to transfer as little as cents or as much as millions in a matter of seconds, without borders or significant additional costs.
There’s also the importance of the increased security of digital assets as compared to any fiat currency, by using cryptography to validate transactions and making them next to impossible to forge because of the huge computational cost it would require to alter just one transaction.
The legitimacy of cryptocurrencies comes from their use and recognition as a payment method, and that’s why the e-Commerce becomes the closest ally and the best way to promote them.
Once a company accepts a cryptocurrency as a means of payment, the digital asset acquires usability and becomes a valued trading tool.
To this day, most people use them as an investment, meaning they are speculative, but the idea is to use them as a payment method to improve the current trading system, and eventually acquire tangible goods and services between the members of the community.
Just imagine, what would happen if all of us come together and adopt this commercial new system, changing the current mainstream paying methods and discarding the government-issued fiat currencies?
It would be a HUGE REVOLUTION AND A HISTORIC MILESTONE, which would free us all from the oppression and control of the financial and political powers of the current economic system.
By taking advantage of the tools provided by technology, we can go back to the primitive trading form, when transactions were between two people without any intermediaries. Nowadays, the best way to do it would be with e-Commerce and the support of internet.
I invite you to join the electronic commerce world with cryptocurrencies and help more people and companies to get involved in this new trading system and be part of the fascinating world of cryptography.
