Bitcoin In The Philippines


People say that the Philippines is a third world country, or one of the poorest countries in the world. This may be true, but what people don’t see is how well developed technology is and how most of the things are integrated with many things. The Philippines is the 3rds largest remittance market in the world receiving around $29 billion USD in 2014. Following that is China with $65 billion USD being remitted and India receiving over $70 billion USD in international remittances.

According to this article on CNN Philippines most of the adults sending or receiving international remittances reported that they are most likely to use a money transfer operator rather than banks. In 2014 this study shows that 69% of Filipinos do not have a bank account.  In the Philippines, more people have Facebook accounts than a bank accounts. The money  Transfer service options are limited so customers funnel into the few accessible locations which are most likely control by a Money Transfer Operator like Western Union.

With this said, Philippines has some of the highest average transfer cost in the Asia as a remittance market. As of 2014 there are over 10 million Filipinos living outside the Philippines with the average Filipino remittance amount of $250 and with a average fee of 5-40% depending on where their remitting to and Money Transfer Operator they use they loose of $13 – $50 of all that hard earned money. Monthly average income can range from $150-$300 USD per month..As one of the world’s largest recipients of remittances, the Philippines received remittances roughly 12% of its gross domestic product in 2008. Remittances have become the single most important source of foreign exchange to the economy and a significant source of income for recipient families. As a result Remittances thus may help in fighting poverty in the Philippines but not in re-balancing growth, especially in the long run.

卖光家产投资比特币 一家人环游大马等四十国

比特币大使一家在2014年就開始用比特幣環遊世界了,只是沒有被報導出來而已。 浏览:𝕐𝕠𝕦𝕋𝕦𝕓𝕖: 𝔹𝕚𝕥𝕔𝕠𝕚𝕟 𝕎𝕠𝕣𝕝𝕕 𝕋𝕠𝕦𝕣𝕨𝕨𝕨.𝔹𝕚𝕥𝕔𝕠𝕚𝕟𝕎𝕠𝕣𝕝𝕕𝕋𝕠𝕦𝕣.𝕠𝕣𝕘#𝔹𝕚𝕥𝕔𝕠𝕚𝕟𝕎𝕠𝕣𝕝𝕕𝕋𝕠𝕦𝕣 卖光家产投资比特币 一家人环游大马等四十国 虚拟货币盛行,荷兰就有一个五口家庭,在2017年时几乎变卖所有家产,包括房产、汽车、退休帐户等,把钱全部投入在比特币上,他们也因此被称为「比特币家族(Bitcoin Family)」。如今随着比特币水涨船高,一家人已经环游世界40个国家。 综合外电报导,泰胡图(Didi Taihuttu)和妻子育有3个小孩,他2017年时将自己的家产套现,包括房产、汽车、退休帐户、衣服、玩具等,并将所有金钱押注在波动性极大的比特币上,当时比特币的价格是900美元(约3636令吉)。 4年期间一家人仅靠比特币,便游历了40个国家及地区。他们表示,不会与不使用比特币的人交易。不过有时为了过日子,他们要通过以物易物、讨价还价,比特币扣帐卡进行交易,甚至要说服卖家接受加密货币等。 泰胡图一家发现,地球上有2个地方可以用比特币交易几乎所有东西,一个是斯洛文尼亚首都卢布尔雅那(Ljubljana)和一个义大利小村庄罗韦雷托(Rovereto)。在卢布尔雅那,他们用比特币支付汽车维修费用和电影戏票;在罗韦雷托,则购买摩托车、缴税和理发。 比特币在2017年时曾一度暴涨逼近2万美元,但2018年暴跌至3100美元,不过在比特币暴跌之际,泰胡图反而大手笔买进。本月上旬比特币价格再度逼近2万美元历史高位,泰胡图指自己仍然不断买入比特币,投资额已比当年再多增一倍,「如果比特币在2022年能达到20万美元,我也不觉得惊讶。」 实际上,有分析师表示,比特币确实还有很大的上涨空间。投资公司Galaxy Digital行政总裁麦克(Mike Novogratz)认为,「这次比特币的反弹才刚开始,并预计到明年将升至6万美元。」 摘自:
