Just won a good prize in the new auction FB game Exhibia @ExhibiaAuction have you tried it?


Ever since I was little and my father took me to auctions I have loved the chance of getting something a little cheaper by way of a bidding game. Yesterday I found that I can now do this on Facebook with a new game called Exhibia so I tried it out.

You log in with your Facebook account then have to “fund” a product and when you do this you are given bids. With those bids you can then go and try to get one of the products currently up for auction. You will never be asked by Exhibia to pay more than the going retail price. However if your bid is the last one when the auction expires you will very probably get the product a bit cheaper than that price. You can make live bids or set a number of bids. You will be bidding against real people because they can only join in with their Facebook or Google+ profiles. There will be a bit of a learning process for you while you get the feel of how to bid. This is common with most games right?

I won a $100 Amazon card without paying the full $100 so can say it was a very good experience. I will try again with other auctions. I took some screenshots so you can follow the process.



When I won Exhibia posted the result to my Facebook profile like this


Try it out for yourselves good luck!


Why we are giving out annual memberships to Crowdify for under 30% of the price


After working building Crowdify for over 2 years now the whole thing has gone way past money and has become simply and easily the thing I am going to do for the rest of my life. It is extremely exciting to have come to this point and I hope that it happens to you all one day. I have been searching for a quick and simply definition of what we are offering here. I think of it right now as a Linked In for technology lovers that offers many perks and benefits. My wife and co founder Yoriko sees it as a launching pad for startups and for online tools that are looking for users.

crowdify_logo_twitter Brands_and_Apps

As you can see from the map here it is a complex and multi faceted thing. We will have 6 apps operating by the end of the year for example and have already made 2. So now we as we prepare to properly launch our website and community we are are crowdfunding but not really for the “funding”. We could find that money elsewhere. What we are looking for is more people who will help take Crowdify forward. Step up and become maybe a city manager or just begin blogging in our site. Offer discounts on your premium service and thereby attract new users. Simply make suggestions during our beta testing.

In November we will begin properly but in the meantime it is going to be very interesting to see who comes along and has some interest in what we are doing. So far we have given shares in the business to around a dozen people who have contributed in some way so far. We will be looking to do more of that so perhaps there is an opportunity for you there as well.

In any case I do hope that you check out our first Indiegogo campaign and get involved. We will be running this again in November but the price will be much higher and there will be less benefits offered. You can become one of our founding members, save $104 and get many other benefits here

Thank you

How to use Gimp for photo retouching. A guide #PhotoRetouching


Gimp: A Program For Photo Retouching, Image Composition And Authoring.


Gimp is a really short name for an even longer real name: GNU Image Manipulation Program.  It’s pretty complex so, yes, we have a beginner’s guide tutorial below for you.

The user interface of this site  is designed by a dedicated design and usability team. This team was formed after the developers of this software signed up to join the OpenUsability project.

A user interface brainstorming group has since been created for this application , where users of GIMP can send in their suggestions as to how they think the GIMP user interface could be improved.


GIMP is presented in two forms, single and multiple window mode; the verson 2.8 defaults to the multiple window mode.

In multiple window mode a set of windows contain all of this software  functionality. By default, tools and tool settings are on the left and other dialogues are on the right.

GTK+ (GIMP tool kit) is used to create the graphical user interface. GTK+’s creation and history regarding GIMP is described in the history section above.

Media attention-

GIMP’s fitness for use in professional environments is regularly reviewed and as such often cited as a possible replacement for Adobe Photoshop. The maintainers seek to fulfill GIMP’s product vision rather than replicate the interface of Adobe Photoshop.

How to Know Your Influencers Better with Traackr @traackr #InfluencerMarketing



Traackr is an influencer relationship management platform. Their application helps marketers discover new influencers they should pay attention to and provides insights to create and nurture relationships with these key people. Traackr works primarily with marketers for mid-size and large brands and serves as the backbone for their influencer marketing programs. Most of their customers are greenfield and developed their influencer programs with Traackr.

Traackr is keyword-based and the team stresses that setting up the keywords correctly is critical. They work with customers to fine tune the set up so you get what you’re looking for. While other monitoring services and online research tools may offer a topic-based approach, searching the web in a more advanced, non-keyword dependent, approach, none are solely influencer tools.

Traackr combines three qualities when finding and ranking influencers. Reach is obvious. Let’s you know how many people a person reaches when they write something online Resonance is the tendency for those posts to be repeated, linked to, retweeted and the like. You can find out if a person gets amplified by his or her network. The last one is relevance, which Traackr measures based on the keywords you’re targeting and how recent, often and important they are in the blogger/influencer’s content.

Certainly, one could argue relevance is only worthwhile with a certain reach and resonance, but unlike most other influencer tools, Traackr scores and prioritizes quality over quantity in this regard — certainly something worth considering.

It’s incredibly easy. Put in good keywords, hit search and voila! You get your top-X list of influencers. Their algorithm produces a high quality list. You can add your own influencers to ensure their posts are considered and the dynamic nature of the tool allows you to see who’s talking about the topics in question now and how influential they are.

The tool is good and if taking the manual labor of identifying who you should reach out to — not the outreach itself, just making your list — is time you’d rather spend doing other things, then Traackr may be for you.

How to get Google keyword suggestions for free with Keyword Tool @keywordtoolio #Adwords



Keyword Tool is an alternative To Google Keyword Planner And Ubersuggest. It generates up to 750+ suggestions for every keyword. Keyword Tool is extremely reliable as it works 99.99% of the time.

It is free. Are you a business owner, online marketer or content creator? Google Adwords are part of any well rounded online marketing starategy and in some industries are an essential part. You need to grab people’s attention in order to make them click on your ads or even read your content. For that, you will have to first understand what your potential customers or readers are actually searching for.

Every search is an expression of people’s needs, wants, interests and desires. Imagine how your business would benefit if you could analyse these search terms that are related to your business domain and customise your product to serve the actual needs of your customers.

Keyword Tool uses Google Autocomplete to generate thousands of relevant long-tail keywords. Google Autocomplete is a feature used in Google Search. Its purpose is to speed up the searches performed by users on Google. The search terms that are suggested by Google Autocomplete are based on a number of different factors, one of them is how often users were searching for a particular term in the past. Keyword Tool extracts the Google suggestions and presents it to you in a convenient form.

To generate long-tail keyword suggestions, Keyword Tool prepends and appends the term, that you specify with different letters and numbers. It also allows you to choose a specific Google domain (192 Google domains supported) and language (83 languages available) combination. Keyword Tool generates over 750+ keywords in the language of your choice. You can export the keywords and use them for content creation, search engine optimization, PPC or other marketing activities.

There are few places where you can find keywords that people type in Google search box. One of the most popular sources of this information is Google Keyword Planner. Unfortunately data presented by Google Keyword Planner is meant to be used for paid advertising inside the Google Adwords platform. The keywords that you will find there might be too general and not very descriptive.

On another hand, the Google Autocomplete feature that is used by Keyword Tool is meant to facilitate the search process.

It’s in Google’s best interest to show users the most relevant keywords. Keywords that would help Google to retrieve the most relevant websites and help users find the most relevant content for their search query.

In Google’s own words: Autocomplete predictions are automatically generated by an algorithm without any human involvement based on a number of objective factors, including how often past users have searched for a term.

It offers customers the opportunity to buy bitcoin, Litecoin, Dogecoin and Blackcoin with debit cards, while importing wallet addresses from other services into their accounts.

In 2013, they bootstrapped their company from a $200K seed round of family and friends and developed a system that has transacted over $15M worth of transactions. Their team of developers,designers, and marketers are passionate and dedicated to make the use of Bitcoin and other digital currencies easy, safe, and convenient.

Buy, Sell and Spend Bitcoin with CoinJar @GetCoinJar #Bitcoin #DigitalCurrency



CoinJar is a next-gen personal finance account powered by Bitcoin. Now you can move seamlessly between currencies and pay anyone globally, using the world’s fastest payment network. It is a global personal finance company, where people can easily buy and spend bitcoin and other currencies.

CoinJar recently launched a revamped mobile exchange/wallet app and is introducing a product called ‘hedged accounts’ for users nervous about bitcoin price volatility. You can have Hedged Accounts where you can hedge your bitcoin against major currencies for the peace of mind that you won’t be affected by bitcoin price fluctuations. Hedged accounts enable customers to set their bitcoin holding at a fiat currency value in their choice of AUD, USD, GBP or EUR. You can also buy and sell bitcoin in that you can trade confidently with a volume weighted average of all major exchanges and a flat 1% buy and sell fee. It is also possible to have Fee-free transfers so you can deposit and withdraw, spend and send with no fees. By extension, you can link bank accounts and cards around the world and move your money instantly for free.

CoinJar provides simple tools to manage digital currencies. They use multi-factor authentication like password plus SMS verification to ensure their customers’ bitcoins are safe, even if their password is compromised. As an additional layer of protection, they store the majority of customer bitcoin holdings offline. CoinJar is backed by leading investors AngelCube and Blackbird Ventures.

CoinJar has opened up its debit card service CoinJar Swipe to the general public. The cards allow users to spend from their bitcoin accounts at over 820,000 retail terminals nationwide, as well as withdraw cash from bank ATMs. Notably, the new system means there is no waiting for banks to clear fund transfers from CoinJar exchange accounts. CoinJar’s data shows nearly two-thirds of the transactions made with its debit cards so far have been for everyday purchases at cafes, bars, supermarkets and variety stores.

Users need to load up their debit cards manually with dollars before spending, though the conversion is managed by CoinJar’s exchange. The company is planning an automated loading feature in future that would allow users to set a minimum balance to be maintained. Once loaded, the cards function the same as any bank-issued debit card and can be used at any business in Australia that is part of the widely-adopted EFTPOS debit network.

Come learn about Bitcoin and start making free money every day at


Come #Blab about #Startups and #Bitcoin with me and @JennyQ on the #TDQShow


If you have not been hiding under a rock for the last month you will have noticed that the biggest buzz on the social media front lines has been about Blab.

I have hosted a couple so far and am about to things up. What better way to learn the ropes than to guest on a Blab with a power user like Jennifer Quinn? Jennifer has a daily show called the Daily Q and I am excited to be invited to talk to her about the future ~ “Startups and Bitcoin” this week on Tuesday evening 5.45 Pacific time.


Why Blab is so cool. 5 quick reasons.
1. I live in Tokyo and do not get to meet barely any social media friends at conferences or events especially US folk do this all the time. Blab is a great substitute. On my first day I was able to talk live and in person to 2 people I have long liked and respected Joel Comm and Timm McVaigh for the first time. It was a buzz.
2. Blab is linked to Twitter in an extremely clever way
3. Blabs are great for creating live and evergreen content BUT also great for just hanging out and discussing stuff
4. The technology is amazing and Blab is rolling out new features daily
5. Blab is putting the social back in social media

Here is an example of a Blab I did last week

This is an exciting time to be alive. Please give us a tweet and subscribe!



Social media company @Kred have remamed Empire Avenue @EmpireKred #EmpireKred


The social stockmarket game Empire Avenue has a new name Empire Kred, a new look and has been integrated with Kred.


Kred bought Empire Avenue a while ago but nothing much had changed till this week. The changes to the site in the past week have been met with a lot of protest but hopefully members feedback will be listened to and things will be returned to a more functional state sooner than later. Good things have happened with photos now being addable to missions and improved mobile functionality. The mission area is however very different and we will all have to learn how to use it. Empire Avenue is a very fragile and difficult to comprehend place so any changes have to be made with extreme care.

Right now we have no idea how Kred and Empire Kred will interact with each other but Kred Scores have been added to the list of networks on our Empire Kred profiles. Why they wanted to change the name is lost on me and yet to be explained. I guess I will get used to it. Kred does seem to have some financial resources and a big email list so hopefully they will give Empire Kred some promotion and get more people taking an interest in it. So far there has been zero sign of that and user numbers continue to fall but there is little point in being anything other than optimistic.

My thoughts are that Empire Avenue will continue to attract a hard core of 200-300 daily devoted users and another 1000 or so peripheral users who drop by once or twice a week on a random basis. Then there are another 2000 or so visit who visit once or twice a month.

Getting user numbers back to the days of 4 years ago when we had 1000 a day on the site will take some social media interaction by those who run the site. It will probably also mean removing community discussion and profile and mission commenting so that that occurs in the social media mainstream and is seen by more than just Empire Avenue users. In the meantime it remains a moderately useful collaborative community with some highly supportive people who you would benefit from getting to know better.


All these scores and prices do not really much to anyone. What the majority of us want is something to spend our billions and billions of eaves on and at least get 50 or so people completing our missions each day. The Empire sails on (just) and hopefully all the changes are more than just deckchair shifting.

Will report again in a month or so

#Nubits is the world`s first stable digital currency @OfficialNubits #Bitcoin #CryptoCurrency #News


Another way to look at and think about transacting money online is NuBits. NuBits is the world’s first stable digital currency.

The network was launched on September, 23rd 2014 by a team of about 20 international cryptocurrency experts led by Jordan Lee. Jordan Lee is a pseudonym for a developer or group of developers who designed the Nu system. They made Peercoins. Proceeds from the sale of NuBits generate a revenue which will be distributed to NuShare holders in the form of Peercoins. This creates a buy pressure on Peercoins.


NuBits can be used just like cash.
The World Bank estimates that half of all adults worldwide do not have access to banking services.
With NuBits, a bank isn’t required to store value, and there are no artificial geographic boundaries to overcome. All you need is an Internet connection.

There of no limits to the types of businesses and services that can be created by using NuBits.
Holding a NuBit in your digital wallet is just like having a dollar bill in your pocket.

So, why are NuBits better than other popular digital currencies?
With NuBits, the value of what you hold today remains stable in the future.
You don’t have to worry about the volatile exchange rate reducing the value of your NuBits.
You also won’t need to worry about how much your digital currency is worth each day.
One NuBit will always be worth one US dollar. The price won’t rise as there will be a buy/sell wall always offering to buy or sell NuBits for $1. Any proceeds from the sales will go to the NuShares holders as dividends.


NuBits are issued by Nu, a DAC owned by NuShareholders.
People who own NuShares cast votes from all over the world.
These votes change the available supply of NuBits to ensure that the price of each NuBit remains stable at one US dollar.
You do NOT need to own NuShares to use NuBits. Anyone can download a NuBits wallet for free.

Where can NuBits be purchased?
The initial release partner is CCEDK (, a professional exchange in Denmark. They will offer NuBits trading pairs in the near future.
They anticipate that several other digital currency exchanges will establish NuBits trading in the weeks and months ahead.

Please feel free to ask questions about Nubits, Bitcoin or any other digital currency in the comments below or at our Facebook group here;

Trade in Gold to Any Address on #Blockchain with Midas Rezerv @MidasRezerv #Bitcoin



Midas Rezerv (MRCoin) is decentralized distributed 100% Gold backed digital token platform designed to enhance investments, trading, and payments of gold. Midas Rezerv (MR) is not a company but an ecosystem and platform for trade and payments in physical gold. It is a bitcoin based platform and crypto wallet that can be used to issue, trade, and send payments in gold to any address on blockchain.

This new startup was founded by Alexi Lane, an entrepreneur from Ukraine who is based in Bangkok. Lane discovered it could be difficult to buy and store physical gold with overseas dealers and vaults. In my recent interview with him, Alexi pointed out that the problem right now in the social and economic global situation is so huge that even the governments can’t solve it so they basically came up with a solution bringing people more accessibility and security in trying commodities in using the bitcoin blockchain . The hassle and inconvenience of the process combined with losses from paying high premiums, currency exchange rates, wire transfer fees, storage, and insurance fees made him think of a better more efficient solution. “Midas Rezerv’s main system design feature is to be and remain decentralized, meaning there is no single entity who controls the whole process,” said Alexi Lane, Founder of Midas Rezerv. The ideas of bitcoin and blockchain technology are becoming more widespread, and Lane has decided to leverage them to solve the problems he encountered in storing and buying physical gold.

They have the MR Coin, which is 100% gold backed by physical bullion stored in secured, fully insured and auditable vaults in safest jurisdictions. The proof of custody for each gold bar is available for public and regulatory audit and verification in real time online and on bitcoin blockscan. . It is like a bitcoin but it is not a bitcoin but it uses the same characteristics and it is fully backed by 1 gram of gold bullion. People can trade, invest and use it as a matter of payment.

MR Coin resolves all the typical problems associated with traditional gold investment and trading by providing a modern, digital alternative to an outdated and convoluted industry reserved only for society’s elite. MRCoin works as a bearer-bond coin and is the perfect safe haven to preserve and transfer value, use as trading asset, or as a method of payment. It is redeemable for gold or cash through authorized dealers and bitcoin exchanges.

Buying physical gold today comes with high premiums to buy and discounts to sell, limited or no access to gold, storage and insurance fees, and inability to travel with gold. There is also the inability to divide gold should you need to sell just a fraction. You can sell it back only to the same dealer if stored internationally.

To enhance transparency investors can see how many coins were initially in a vault by looking at an initial blockchain transaction. The transaction provides a link pointing to documents that are scanned and stored in the form of a digital cryptodigest.

Lane said that these documents contain vault contract, storage receipt, invoice of fees paid, gold bar certificates along with serial numbers, and even photographs of the bars,” said Lane. The documents are encrypted and time stamped on the blockchain, and as a result there is no way they can be altered or modified. Each time there is an audit inspection in the vault, such a report is also published in the same way. This is the best way to assure the permanent custody of the gold holdings according to him.

Midas Rezerv provides the solution to this conundrum by allowing access, payments, investment, and trading of physical gold holdings within the reach of a smartphone. All physical gold assets are stored with trusted secured vaults in the most safest and reputable countries. Bullion custody is verified and recorded on the Bitcoin blockchain using Proof of Holdings. The exact corresponding quantity of MR coins that represent particular gold asset is issued into system circulation.

BitPagos is helping merchants and consumers transact in a region were 90% of the population doesn’t have credit cards, 65% is unbanked, several countries have high inflation and poor payments and financial infrastructure.

For merchants, they help process international transactions with Credit Cards or Bitcoin for a fraction of the cost in a fraction of the time.

For consumers, they help them buy bitcoins instantly with cash in more than 8000 locations and growing, which gives the millions unbanked a way to pay online and access to financial services for the first time.

BitPagos CEO Sebastian Serrano said some clients prefer to hold bitcoins. There’s no way for sure to measure the uptake of bitcoins in any country, but the evidence suggests Argentina is outpacing most. The number of traders listed on Local Bitcoins Buenos Aires is often three times that of Manhattan, for example, and the Fundacion Bitcoin Argentina is known to run the largest bitcoin meetup in the world.

BitPagos has been a direct beneficiary of this. The company has signed up more than 600 merchants across Latin America, though not all are very active. And after having doubled its transaction volumes in three months, the startup this month announced a $600,000 financing round with contributions from Pantera Capital Management, SecondMarket CEO Barry Silbert and Tim Draper of venture-capital-firm Draper Associates.

As their country has imposed strict capital controls amid years of double-digit inflation, Argentines have shown a significant interest in Bitcoin.

Enter BitPagos, a payment processor that accepts Bitcoin and is aimed at the Latin American market.

Argentina’s share of the Bitcoin market ballooned over the summer, and by July Argentina was accounting for 3% of all Bitcoin downloads worldwide. However, access to the currency is limited because of international exchange volume controls.

BitPagos may help solve this problem by bringing Bitcoin to the local economy and not make an exchange from the peso necessary. Instead, BitPagos plans to target tourist friendly merchants such as hotels, who can in turn pay suppliers with Bitcoin, thus introducing the currency to the local market without exchanges.

The team has also launched its own booking system for hotel or other property rentals,, which is in private beta.

BitPagos can also process credit cards, and in fact this still accounts for most of the startup’s business.

BitPagos is working with Cryptocambios, a local Bitcoin exchange in Argentina, for fiat currency swaps.

Argentina has yet to attempt much regulation of Bitcoin itself, but a country in such financial shape is certain to keep an eye on developments.

Meanwhile, BitPagos will continue to try to introduce a new flow of capital into the country of just less than 42 million.
