Tell us about yourself?
Self-taught in computer technologies. Been involved in Bitcoin since 2014 when I first learned about the currency of the internet that knows no boundaries and is cencorship resistant backed by cryptography.
If you could go back in time a year or two, what piece of advice would you give yourself?
All is good. Hard work pays off. Probably that advise should be first told when I first started.
What problem does your business solve?
Use case examples below:
Upload a photo with your smartphone (i.e. a dress ) that you saw on a magazine, website, Pinterest or Instagram and you don’t know where to buy it online connect it with a BTC reward of your choice and upload it to bitfortip so members can try and search it online for you in order to win the bitcoin reward.
Find a better price for an item that you want. Offer a small Bitcoin reward for members to search for you online.
Find a piece of information on the internet that you can’t find on your own. Post an inquiry along with a bitcoin reward for people to find you a certain link, image, e.t.c.
