The strongest reason to on board into crypto? Ability to earn money, Ryan X. Charles says
Yours.org started in 2015 as a novel idea launched by Ryan X. Charles and Dr. Clemens Ley that allows people to get paid for doing what they love on social media: create and discover good content.
Since its inception, Yours.org has hurdled through the barriers to become an increasingly popular content and social network platform for blockchain and cryptocurrency enthusiasts. According to Charles, the website’s payments volume has been growing continuously since the beginning, enabling it to venture into new territories—like bringing the Yours.org technology to everyone around the world.
“What we’re doing now is we’re making the Money Button of the internet,” Charles told CoinGeek. “This is basically making the Yours.org technology available for any third-party publisher or app that wants to integrate micropayments into their existing website or app.”
The Money Button essentially enables any website to integrate the same Yours.org micropayment button allowing its reader to pay to read or “buy” a single article really quick and at amounts as small as $1 without having to commit to a full subscription. The goal, Charles said, is to on board normal mainstream users to cryptocurrency by giving them the ability to earn money.
“We’re creating lots of mechanisms for people to earn money. That’s the strongest reason to on board,” Charles said. “We can do a lot of basic things like integrate with credit card systems like Coinbase’s Buy widget and allow people to buy Bitcoin Cash with their credit card, things like that. We’re doing everything we can to make it accessible to normal people.”
To on board the mainstream market, particularly merchants, into Bitcoin BCH, Charles said it’s important to educate them on how powerful the technology is, especially following the May upgrade that saw the Bitcoin BCH block size increase to 32MB along with the re-enabling of several OP_Codes.
“If you use credit cards today, fees are extremely high. Fees on Bitcoin Cash are really, really low—that’s a really, really important property for a lot of businesses. What they need is, they simply need the ability to integrate Bitcoin Cash into all their other existing systems like their accounting systems or things of that sort. A lot of software has been written, but there’s a lot more software that still has to be written to make this easy for them but I think if they understood how much they have to gain financially by adopting this technology, they’ll do it,” Charles said.
