Australia has a thriving Bitcoin, blockchain and cryptocurrency community, with interest in the space still high, despite the downturn in the market since the frenzy of the December peak. People from all walks of life have jumped on board and can be found at packed out weekly meetups around the country.
Into this market, comes the newly launched website, Crypto.com.au, which aims to provide the latest Australian blockchain, Bitcoin and cryptocurrency news and resources. The domain itself, would in my estimation, be the second most valuable crypto related name in Australia, next to Bitcoin.com.au, which was purchased for $35,182 USD back in 2014. In the case of Crypto.com.au, owner Chris Burgess registered it long before cryptocurrency even existed.
The site built on this premium domain is divided into several sections, providing information for those new to cryptocurrency, right through to the highly experienced and technically minded. Here is an outline of each of the sections.
News: articles about the latest cryptocurrency events, projects, technologies, interviews and reviews, written by Chris Burgess and his team of writers. You can even apply to write for Crypto.com.au here.
Events: details about one-off conferences and events, along with regular meetups. Find out dates, times, places, costs and where to register for these. If you run or host an event or meetup yourself, you can submit it for listing on Crypto.com.au here.
Buying and Selling: information about how and where to buy and sell crytocurrencies, exchanges and things to consider when choosing an exchange, along with links to security tips and details about how wallets work.
Crypto Wallets: learn about hardware and software wallets, what they are, the differences and some options that are available for each type of wallet.
Tools: handy online tools that can make crypto things quicker and easier, such as cryptocurrency converters and real-time price tickers. Further tools will be added over time.
Getting Started: the place to learn what cryptocurrencies are, what a blockchain is, how cryptocurrencies compare to traditional banking and how to protect your cryptocurrencies and keep them secure.
Along with the website, you can also connect with or follow Crypto.com.au on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter.
Finally, if you're looking for somewhere to advertise your Bitcoin, blockchain or cryptocurrency project, business or product, you can submit your details to Crypto.com.au here.
With the price of Bitcoin down at the moment, it's a good time to be reminded that this is only a temporary situation. Even if the current downtrend continues, the long term future of Bitcoin is bright — out of this world even!
For those who need some encouragement to hold on during these turbulent times, artist, Terry Cook, has produced a visual representation of Bitcoin's destination — the moon! He shared this work via his @TerryTinkerer Twitter account here. A quick scroll through Terry's feed reveals a wide variety of his other Bitcoin, cryptocurrency and gerneral art. It's also well worth checking out his website, tcookpaintings.co.uk.
So be inspired and strap your BTC boots on tight, so that when the moon landing happens, you too will make your Bitcoin mark.
This recently released documentary, Bitcoin: Beyond The Bubble, as the name suggests, informs the viewer of the role, importance and relevance of BTC outside of the price. The production is professional, with short snippets of commentary from various well-known identities in the Bitcoin space, including, Trace Mayer, Tone Vays, Elizabeth McCauley and Andy Hoffman. Points of view are also expressed by those critical and/or skeptical of Bitcoin, and a brief history of money is given.
At just 35 minutes long, this video is ideal for those who are new to Bitcoin and want a brief overview of what it's about and why it's important, without getting bogged down in anything too technical or heavy. Bitcoin: Beyond The Bubble, is also an eye opener for those who have only ever seen Bitcoin as a way to make money or get rich quick.
Could an increase in the number of women investing in Bitcoin send the price to the moon? Well, Meltem Demirors, founder of Athena Capital, says in reference to the world’s female population that, "I feel like we’re missing out on this major opportunity to market to 51% of the population, to 60% of the wealth and to 80% of consumer spending."
Watch the full discussion with Meltem about this topic in the video above.
Bitcoin to the Moon is a blog dedicated to following the original cryptocurrency on a journey to its ultimate destination.
