BitCoin and the Blockchain
We don’t like swearing, but we love this expression, because there’s a lot of truth to it. We borrowed it from Dr. Nouriel Roubini, a Professor of Economics and International Business at New York University Stern School of Business, who has been tweeting vehemently about just how bad sh.tcoins are.Read Story
"Beem It" – Payments
Is an app owned by CommBank, NAB and Westpac. They tell you when you are signing up.
I downloaded Beem It about two weeks ago and started to go through the sign-up process. I stopped because I hit a hurdle confirming the two micro-transactions that Beem It posts to your bank account. You need to log in to your bank app, look at the bank entries, then enter the two amounts that appear in the Beem It sign up screen. I don’t use CommBank, NAB, Westpac or ANZ, and I have a feeling my bank’s system is not the newest, so the entries aren’t posted in real time. They come next day. So, the last time I signed up, I missed the entries the next day and was timed out by Beem It. I started the sign-up process again and will look for the entries tomorrow. So, this is going to be written over two days.
