Adsense, Ads, Marketing and advertising (Bitcoins, btc) | bitcoins, btc, ads, adsense, google adsense, urdu adsense, marketing, advertisement, bloggers, pakistani bloggers, bloggers pakistan

This article is to cover the use of marketing services similar to adsense. While I will cover these with information with retrospect to Pakistan they should hold true for most countries with a few exceptions. Currently there is high demand for adsense and its ads placements in Pakistan. From my recent interactions with bloggers and eCommerce websites its evident that a vast majority of Pakistanis are producing great content that is being ranked really high and driving in authentic traffic. Similarly I look at the other end from marketing stand point of view this is great not just for international searchers but also for local searchers. In regard to this I have also seen many new bloggers trying to get into this field and make money. While there is real competition I would like to highlight a method that might go hand in hand and help both the marketing company and the bloggers by using services similar to adsense.

Marketers & Advertisers :

Currently people in Pakistan resort to ubl wiz cards or prepaid cards because its just very difficult to understand how adsense works. Most people dont even know the keywords they want to search hence they tend to stay away from adsense and turn to facebook marketing. While facebook is good to get your products viral I personally believe that adsense is better marketing platform and should eventually generate more results then facebook advertising.  A similar platform by the name of a-ads. There are many other similar platforms available but I will pick this one due to its anonymous nature.

For a eCommerce or retailer or any new startup its quite difficult to have a high budget to market on high ranking websites so services such as adsense, a-ads or facebook present a low cost high turnover return reward possibility. Now the question that might comes to ones mind is why a-ads and not adsense? To answer that let me get into a bit of detail. Adsense requires high traffic websites inorder for them to be approved and get paid. While this makes sense for most people going through the entire setup for a businessman who is just looking to run a new or an old setup becomes quite confusing and hence he has to resort to either hiring someone and paying them to do this work for him. With this setup comes risks and rewards. People tend up putting their credit card numbers and details onto google server for their employees to use for marketing their products. This has its risks. Which in my opinion are very high. This reason and the fact that bitcoin is anonymous like a-ads is why I prefer putting an ad campaign which is much simpler doesnt require information and you can simply deposit funds in bitcoins so that your personal data is secured and not sitting on remote servers.

A-ads has been around since 2013 so its not a new website. I believe their fees of 20% is a bit high but for a small setup that is reasonable. If you accept bitcoins I think this is the best way to market your products since this will mostly please the btc community generally. If we look at
https://a-ads.com/catalog Link  we will see:

Selected category gives ~773551 impressions per day and includes 4503 ad units.
CPM: 0.00154157 Ƀ ($0.40), CPC: 0.00002542 Ƀ ($0.01)

This shows that displaying your ads on a-ads is relatively cheap against if you were to use facebook ads or adsense. This is the added advantage. To add to this its also known fact that most people dont generate sales in btc unless there is a discount involved. So even if you do accept btc doesnt mean you will generate too many sales. But you will be able to market your product to the world and very low costs with the same btc you are earning. Is this all worth it. Well it doesnt hurt trying.

Bloggers:

The question is why use this if you have adsense? Well for once it doesnt matter which type of blog you have as long as you generate some kind of traffic you will get paid. Lets be honest here I did a test and have integrated a-ads here and while I am not going to be earning much I am going to be making something. The setup is such that I hardly get around 20-40 people daily in total from http://bitcoin.com.pk and http://bitcoinpk.com and I am still able to generate small amounts of income. While this might not be big its better then nothing and ads out to atleast cover the cost of the domain and blogs after a year. This is based on my current earnings for around 2.5 days that I see this happening. Since I pay for my domains and hosting in bitcoins through namescheap it makes the cycle or well worth it. The one thing to note here is for people who would want to replace adsense with a-ads while it doesnt really make sense if you are earning higher amounts there is one advantage you will have over adsense, that is payment through bitcoin which can be cashed out at better rates from urdubit as opposed to using direct bank transfer and services such as western union.

Conclusion:
To wind up this I believe that a-ads is a good alternative to advertise and market your products anonymously and without much risks. Additionally marketers and advertisers have a cheaper solution to market their products on low budget websites and still be able to generate sales. Most ads dont get direct sales but do generate an effect in which the customer is reminded of your services and return once they need the product. I would like to suggest for everyone to give it a go.  Would like to invite Bloggersadvertisers and marketing experts to review a-ads and other such services to help freelancers grow.

With New Tax Proposition Bitcoin becomes more important in Pakistan. | Mr 0.6%, Isac Daar, Bank, tax on bank transactions, banking, bitcoin, litecoin, dogecoin, bitcoin in pakistan, pakistan, btc in pakistan, pakistan btc, bill payments, pay bills online,

With the problems and corruption in Pakistan going uncontrolled. The govt is trying to tax each and every bank transaction. There are alot of problems with current tax laws in Pakistan of which I am not going to get into much details. But bear in mind that each and every Pakistani is taxed through Cellphone home phones, electric bills, tv bills, gas bills etc. Most of this sector which is below the poverty line doesn’t even know that they are the ones that are suppose to receive a refunds. This in return causes the richer to get richer and divert taxes while the poor get poorer. With recommendations of the new tax law if implemented every banking transaction in Pakistan will be taxed hence causing more burden to existing taxpayers and causing double taxation. While this could be avoided if our systems worked properly then this wouldn’t be a problem but the returns are hardly paid and have to go through alot of problems before you actually receive the payments. This may even propel the use of Bitcoin In Pakistan.

As mentioned before btc or bitcoin is a peer to peer system that works like utorrent and hence is equivalent to digital cash. While the leading world countries are now starting to accept this crypto currency and realize its existence (now evident by the acceptance of big players such as Paypal, Microsoft, Expedia, Namescheap, Goldman Sachs and entities such as NYSE) Pakistan still remains far behind. But with the law as proposed by Mr Isaq Daar it may cause people to look for alternate ways to transact with one another in order to avoid this hefty tax. Bitcoin/btc/xbt maybe the answer here and propel people to actually start storing money in bitcoin. It is now clear that Pakistan is a growing economy in the bitcoin era as Urdubit trade volumes have reached 3 btc avg daily. Paybill which is still very new and still building has seen an increase in mobile topups. Paybill has been designed for payment of bills in Pakistan.

I do hope that this tax is not implemented, but at the same time this does show us how important a true p2p currency is. The fact that all the funds of any person in any country can be blocked or controlled by any sort of external force at will can just call shivers. I leave the readers of this blog to comment and share your thoughts on this.

What and Why? | Bitcoin Pakistan

I figured it was time to update and give some information on what excatly is bitcoin and blockchain to my fellow country men. This is my view of what it is and why it is. Please realize that bitcoin in my opinon was created to make money truly yours. Currently all financial systems work through centralized banking, anyone living in Pakistan already know the problem with the control the banks have right now on our accounts. The idea is what I believe was in the head of satoshi that led to the creation of the first true peer to peer (similary to torrent) type currency known as btc or bitcoin. He laid the foundationg of an opensource ledger(database) for the general public where every entry was single entry and could not be removed.  But all the ledger was synced with the other users running the software on the network. This software was known as a wallet which can be considered like a bank account of sort for the comman man. While you can have many wallat addresses in a single wallet it resides in public ledger. This is also why it is important to backup the wallet.dat file of your wallet if you have the full software running. There are now online wallets and paper wallets you can also store your bitcoins on online exchanges or bitcoin trading platforms. Do remember if you lose your wallet on your pc or paper wallet for any reason its gone forever. I believe that bitcoin is still in its infancey and has a long way to go, think about how internet came about:
There was Fax–> Bullitin Board Service or BBS–> email –>internet
It took it a long time, it wasent an overnight revolution. Similarly bitcoin is very new. While it has captured a huge market it still has a long way to go. There are benifits of the blockchain and bitcoin as both are being innovated upon. Some companies are working on blockchain(ledger, or database) such as voip (p2p) coins such as korecoin and viorcoin then there rare coins such as bay, blk etc that support smart contrants and p2p markets. Then there is the ripple gateway that is trying to replace the current swift system.

Then there are services that belive in bitcoin itself and are using its financial power to change the way we bank or use money today. Think about the fact that you own one currency that works throughout the world you dont have to worry about Pakistani ruppee price fluctuating aganist the USD (this is an example) as PKR is not accepted everywhere in the world. It is a true boarderless curreny that I believe is brining people closer together. The launch of https://www.coinpip.com is one such gateway which lets companies pay their developers anywhere in the world. Its a singaporian startup that is doing alot of work in this feild. They take the bitcoin out of picture but use bitcoin in the backend. Then there are exchanges and atms and user acceptance poping up everywhere around the world, such as microsoft, dell, paypal, namescheap, overstock etc. There are physicall vendors in Pakistan too. There is a shop in Gunjarawallla, a petrol pump/ gas station in Karachi, then http://www.paybill.io where you can pay your bills for Malaysia and Pakistan and also do mobile topups, or easy loads http://www.a2zlawn.com that are accepting bitcoins for payment,  you can also check http://www.coinmap.org for a few other locations that accept bitcoins.

I have also witnessed the power of bitcoin recently and how user to user interaction increases adoption.  I was contacted by a person who wanted to buy stuff from a vendor in another country wanted to learn about bitcoin and how it could benifit him. After consultations with us he wanted to give it a go. But his vendor was also fearfull of the price fluctions and how bitcoin could be risky as he believed it cant be real. The user here after consultation convinced his vendor that he would be taking this risk so there was no worries at his end. The first transation they did took all in all 15 mins and the cash was transfered in the vendors bank account while saving the payee money as compared to if he had used a credit card or wiretransfer. When the vendor saw this his response was: “This is really very easy, will you make more payments like this?” This is what I believe money should be, a truely boarderless medium with worldwide acceptance. The bad policies of some countries have left them in poverty, this doesnt mean that that the citizen of that country should not even have control over their funds/money and acceptablity etc. If the currency is truely boaderless he doesnt have to worry about local exchangers even.

I do believe this is only the begining of the future what the future holds, can only be witnessed in time. I do believe there is a need for one global international currency even the world powers such as china, russia and UN want this. There is an interesting article that was put out back in 2009 http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/currency/6152204/UN-wants-new-global-currency-to-replace-dollar.html and I think bitcoin is the answer for that.

 

Is Bitcoin Legal? | Bitcoin Legal

Bitcoin is of interest to enforcement, tax authorities, and legal regulators, all of that are attempting to grasp however it fits into existing frameworks. The lawfulness of your bitcoin activities can rely upon United Nations agency you’re and what you’re doing with it.
Bitcoin has established to be a contentious issue for regulators and law enforcers, each of that have targeted the virtual currency in a shot to manage its use. we have a tendency to ar still timely within the game, and plenty of legal authorities ar still troubled to grasp the cryptocurrency, in addition to create laws around it. Amid all this uncertainty, one question stands out: is bitcoin legal?
The answer is affirmative, reckoning on what you’re doing with it. browse on for our guide to the advanced legal landscape close bitcoin. Most of the discussion issues the US, wherever several of the legal dramas ar presently enjoying out.
What ar the issues concerning Bitcoin?
Government agencies ar more and more disquieted concerning the implications of bitcoin, because it has the power to be used anonymously, and is so a possible instrument for concealment. specially, law enforcers appear to be troubled concerning the localized nature of the currency.
As early as April 2012, the Federal Bureau of Investigation printed document lightness its fears around bitcoin specifically, drawing a distinction between it and centralized digital currencies like eGold and WebMoney. It voiced issues that whereas US-based exchanges ar regulated, offshore services might not be, and will be a haven for criminals to use bitcoin for illicit activities while not being derived.
Bitcoin was the sole type of currency accepted on trade route, AN anonymous marketplace that was solely accessible over the TOR anonymous browsing network, and that was closed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Oct 2013. Trade route was unremarkably accustomed sell product that ar legal in several countries, as well as narcotics. This prompted US legislator Charles Schumer to involve the location to be stop working, expressly linking it to bitcoin, that he known as a “surrogate currency”. The US Drug social control Administration appropriated bitcoins from a US resident for buying a drug in Gregorian calendar month 2013.
Who regulates it?
Regulators can vary on a per-country basis, however you’ll be able to expect to check national money regulators fascinated by bitcoin and alternative virtual currencies, doubtless in conjunction with regional regulators at a sub-country level.
FinCEN
In the US, the money Crimes social control Network (FinCEN), that is workplace inside the US executive department, took the initiative. It printed pointers concerning the employment of virtual currencies. FinCEN’s March eighteen, 2013 steerage outlined the circumstances below that virtual currency users may well be classified as cash services businesses (also unremarkably called cash sending business or MTBs). MTBs should enforce Anti-Money washing (AML) and grasp Your shopper (KYC) measures, characteristic the those that they’re doing business with.
CFTC
The US artefact Futures mercantilism Commission (CTFC), that takes care of money derivatives, hasn’t declared regulation nonetheless, however has created it clear that it may if it needed to.
SEC
The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) hasn’t issued solid laws on virtual currencies, however its workplace of capitalist Education ANd support printed an capitalist aware of warn folks concerning fallacious investment schemes involving bitcoin. specially, it warned of Ponzi schemes, once charging Lone-Star State resident Trendon T Shavers, aka ‘pirateat40’, founder and operator of Bitcoin Savings and Trust, with allegedly raising 700,000 bitcoins by promising investors up to seven-membered weekly interest.
Legislative Branch
The SEC case has forced the branch of state to think about bitcoin’s status. Shavers had claimed that he couldn’t be prosecuted for securities fraud, as bitcoin wasn’t cash. However, choose Amos Mazzant issued a note difference of opinion that bitcoin is used as cash.

In August 2013, the Senate wrote to many enforcement agencies, inquiring concerning the threats and risks regarding virtual currency. The letters enclosed this one to the Department Of Homeland Security, fretting concerning the dearth of a written record for regulators and social control agencies to follow for virtual currency transactions. It requested policies and steerage associated with the treatment of virtual currencies, and knowledge concerning any in progress strategic efforts within the space.

November saw responses from the assorted agencies. The Department of Homeland Security was the foremost disquieted concerning the criminal threat from illicit use of bitcoin, whereas the Department of Justice, the Fed and therefore the Department of Justice all acknowledged the legitimate uses of virtual currencies. The SEC argued that “any interests issued by entities owning virtual currencies or providing returns supported assets like virtual currencies” were thought-about securities and so fell below its remit.

US States

Each US state has their own money regulators and laws, and every approaches bitcoin otherwise. American state and ny are notably aggressive in their pursuit of bitcoin-related organizations, for instance, whereas others, like American state, South geographical region, and MT, don’t regulate cash sending businesses. there’s a listing of state approaches to cash transmitter laws here.

In could 2013, California’s state money regulator issued a letter to the Bitcoin Foundation, a noncommercial organization designed to push bitcoin, warning it that it should be a cash transmission business, and threatening folks there with potential fines and jail time.

Then, in August 2013, the ny Department of monetary Services issued subpoenas to twenty two bitcoin-related corporations, though these letters were a lot of conciliatory, inquiring for a dialogue to develop applicable regulative pointers for the digital currency trade. Since then, ny has planned issuance “BitLicenses” – licenses for bitcoin-based businesses – and can be holding hearings on the topic.

Private Sector corporations (Banks)

Several banks have stopped accounts owned by folks operational bitcoin exchanges. In a minimum of one case, this was as a result of the bank was sad that the corporate concerned failed to have a cash sending business (MTB) account.

The Senate self-addressed the difficulty of banking and federal regulation in an exceedingly set of hearings, command in Nov. The hearings were alpha in nature and should not result in legislation, however feedback from agencies enclosed acknowledgements that there have been legitimate uses for the coin.

What this suggests to You

The lawfulness of bitcoin depends on United Nations agency you’re, and what you’re doing with it. There ar 3 main classes of bitcoin neutral. somebody could represent quite one in all these classes, and every class has its own legal issues.

Users

These ar people that get bitcoins, and either hoard them or pay them. below the law enforcement agency steerage, users United Nations agency merely exchange bitcoins for product and services ar victimization it lawfully.

FinCEN: “A person who creates units of this convertible virtual currency and uses it to get real or virtual product and services could be a user of the convertible virtual currency and not subject to regulation as a cash transmitter.”

Miners

According to the law enforcement agency steerage, folks making bitcoins and exchanging them for edict currency don’t seem to be safe.

FinCEN: “By distinction, an individual that makes units of convertible virtual currency and sells those units to a different person for real currency or its equivalent is engaged in transmission to a different location and could be a cash transmitter.”

Miners appear to constitute this class, that may in theory create them chargeable for MTB classification. this can be a bone of rivalry for bitcoin miners, United Nations agency have asked for clarification. This issue has to not our data been tested in court.

Exchanges

Exchanges ar outlined as MTBs.

FinCEN: “In addition, an individual is AN money dealer and a cash transmitter if the person accepts such de-centralized convertible virtual currency from one person and transmits it to a different person as a part of the acceptance and transfer of currency, funds, or alternative worth that substitutes for currency.”

Taxation

In 2009, the US tax revenue Service (IRS) denote data concerning the tax applications of victimization virtual currencies within virtual economies, difference of opinion that taxpayers will receive financial gain from a virtual economy and will be needed to report it as nonexempt financial gain. However, it primarily based this mostly on steerage associated with bartering, gambling, business, and hobby financial gain.

However, the Internal Revenue Service has not nonetheless denote steerage on ‘open flow’ virtual currencies that may be used outside of virtual economies. in an exceedingly 27-page report [PDF] printed in could 2013, the US General Accounting workplace (GAO) involved a lot of steerage from the Internal Revenue Service on this issue.

The Internal Revenue Service responded that its steerage may currently be taken to hide virtual currencies as used outside of virtual economies. It added that it absolutely was conjointly observing the potential tax compliance risks display by anonymous electronic payment systems, and was operating with alternative federal agencies on the subject.

In Gregorian calendar month 2013, the director of AN Internal Revenue Service unit that investigates cyber threats conjointly told the money Times that the employment of “cyber-based currency and payment systems” to cover unreported financial gain from the Internal Revenue Service could be a threat that it absolutely was “vigorously responding to”. And at Senate hearings in Nov, law enforcement agency director Jennifer Shasky Calvery confirmed that the Internal Revenue Service would be emotional a lot of steerage on virtual currencies. In short, don’t expect to evade taxes by earning bitcoins rather than edict currency.
What is the trade Doing?

The trade has well-versed growing regulator issues in many ways that.

– many corporations created a committee to create a self-regulatory body known as knowledge, designed to encourage open oral communication with regulators.
– The Bitcoin Foundation shaped committees to supply legal steerage, steer policy, and talk terms with regulators.
– Exchanges are making an attempt to secure MTB licenses at the state and federal levels, and a few have avoided doing business with US customers till this can be resolved.
