Buy a Mobile Website with Bitcoins – Picobarn begins accepting the new digital currency

Discounts for Early Adopters

Bitcoin_logo.svgWe are pleased to announce that Picobarn is now accepting Bitcoin as a form of payment. In fact, we are offering a 25% discount on orders made using Bitcoin. We will redesign or build from scratch a mobile website for you or your organization. If you are a company currently accepting Bitcoin, trade with us at current USD market value and receive a 25% discount on your redesign. That’s a $3,000 value for $2,250. Payments can be broken up into 3 parts.

What is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin (sign: BTC) is a decentralized digital currency based on an open-source, peer-to-peer internet protocol. It was introduced by a pseudonymous developer named Satoshi Nakamoto in 2009.

Internationally, bitcoins can be exchanged by personal computer directly through a wallet file or a website without an intermediate financial institution. In trade, one bitcoin is subdivided into 100 million smaller units called satoshis, defined by eight decimal places.

Bitcoin does not operate like typical currencies: it has no central bank and it solely relies on an internet-based peer-to-peer network. The money supply is automated, limited, divided and scheduled, and given to servers or “bitcoin miners” that verify bitcoin transactions and add them to an archived transaction log every 10 minutes. The log is authenticated by ECDSA digital signatures and verified by the intense process of bruteforcing SHA256 hash functions of varying difficulty by competing “bitcoin miners.” Transaction fees may apply to new transactions depending on the strain put on the network’s resources. Each 10-minute portion or “block” of the transaction log has an assigned money supply. The amount per block depends on how long the network has been running. Currently, 25 bitcoins are generated with every 10-minute block. This will be halved to 12.5 BTC during the year 2017 and halved continuously every 4 years after until a hard limit of 21 million bitcoins is reached during the year 2140.

Picobarn + Bitcoin

It is critical for Picobarn to stay on the cutting-edge of technology. We test and prove technology on our own company before implementing it for our clients. For this reason, we are beginning to accept bitcoin now so that in the future we can consult with clients on implementing bitcoin transactions in their own businesses.

Philosophically, we are aligned with bitcoin in a few ways. First, we believe that competition to Visa, Master Card and Paypal is long overdue. A lowering of transaction fees made on purchases will help the bottom-line of the businesses that we work for. Second, bitcoin is global and helps remove the artificial borders between people and nations. Third, it is an open-source technology that is gaining mass adoption, Picobarn follows these types of trends and invests human resources in long-life, open-source technology.

In Good Company

Picobarn has joined a list of popular technology (and non-technology!) organizations that accept the digital currency. These organizations include: WordPress, Reddit, NameCheap and more. These are companies that Picobarn is already working with, so we followed their lead to stay on the leading edge!

Need to start using Bitcoin? We use the online exchange Mt. Gox, which is like a Forex market for bitcoin, it allows you to convert U.S. Dollars into the digital currency. It’s a difficult process to get started using bitcoin, so it is not yet ready for the non-geeks among us. As time goes on, we hope that bitcoin will gain in popularity and ease of use. We will continue the discount on our services until bitcoin is as simple to use and ubiquitous as the U.S. Dollar.
