Something for content creator’s to bear in mind! #cryptocurrency
Meet NeuCoin, a new cryptocurrency designed specifically to tip content creators and make online micropayments. NeuCoin is both a startup based in Paris and a new currency. It raised $2.25 million from dozens of business angels and signed partnerships with a few content distribution websites.
NeuCoin explained me why we need yet another new cryptocurrency. Bitcoin presents a few risks when it comes to microtransactions. First, it is incredibly complicated to understand what a wallet is, how it works and why you would need one to pay for a song or a movie. It basically replaces your credit card for online transaction. Yet, this is not enough to convince mainstream users.
On the mining side, there are now very few players and there is a risk that mining becomes an oligopoly. Bitcoin’s original mission of killing banking fees could fade away.
