Leaving the banking system and only using Bitcoin can have several distinct advantages. It can save banking fees, protect against identity theft, maintain financial independence, and remove the fear of having ones funds shut down in the case of controversial activity. However, losing the banking system is not without its drawbacks. CoinTelegraph interviewed Tiffany Hayden, founder and CEO of Enable Payments and a candidate for the US Congress, about the potential downsides of going completely unbanked. CoinTelegraph: How useful or necessary is it to have a bank account? Tiffany Hayden: Using cash for everyday transactions is a hassle. Its aggravating how often a cashier hands back the incorrect change. It doesnt happen occasionally, it…

Popular Bitcoin Investing App Keza to Relaunch

Keza, the mobile app that allows any Bitcoin holder worldwide to invest in stocks and bonds, is to be resurrected after its acquisition by Philippines company Satoshi Citadel Industries (SCI).

Also read:Shapeshift Transforms KeepKey Hardware Wallet into an Exchange

The move will see Keza developed closer physically to its initial key target market: amateur investors in emerging economies. According to its website, a relaunch is imminent and interested parties are invited to sign up for notification when its available.

SCI CEO John Bailon told Bitcoin.com he had been a user of the original app, and had been blown away by the initial concept. At the time, SCI was even mulling something similar for its own ecosystem. He said:

We thought it was the best execution of the idea, from design to how simple it has made the experience of investing for new users [] It was a no-brainer for us when the opportunity to take over the project was presented to us.

Bailon said he assumed the original developers had places like the Philippines in mind when creating the app, as the country presented the best fit for such a revolutionary product.

Keza earned much praise in its initial development and beta period earlier this year, raising over $350,000 in seed funding including that of Barry Silberts Digital Currency Group (DCG)and angel investor Jason Calacanis.

Its innovative concept appeared to demonstrate what Bitcoin was fundamentally all about opening up financial and investment opportunities to those who wanted to participate, but were stymied by barriers in the existing financial system.

It was available to anyone in the world except US residents.

Keza signed up 2,000 iOS users for a beta test, but then in April announced abruptly that it was closing down for unspecified reasons, and returned all testers funds (including any profits earned).

Bailon added that Filipinos in particular would be excited to be able to finally participate in a global investment arena.

Were very in tune with technology and international news, and being able to take part in it has brought a lot of interest into Keza. I think Ive never had so many inquiries for a product we havent launched.

Original co-founder Simon Burns had said Kezas mission was to expand access of financial services to every corner of the globe, allowing any budding investor from Lagos, Istanbul or Toronto to invest in a global portfolio of stocks and bonds.

The simple app allowed investors to choose one of three portfolios depending on risk level: Conservative, Moderate or Aggressive. A tracking chart then showed how each users investment was performing.

The original Keza had investment partners who acted as custodians for the Bitcoin and placed the investments, though all investments remained denominated in Bitcoin (and were thus subject to price fluctuations).

Satoshi Citadel Industries is one of the oldest and largest Bitcoin companies in the Philippines, and has become known for its range of products which test key use cases for Bitcoin particularly in developing/emerging economies.

It operates Bitcoin remittance service Rebit.ph, exchange BuyBitcoin.ph, payment processor Bitmarket.ph and the upcoming wallet/social media app bitbit.

If youre not a US resident, will you be signing up for the relaunched Keza? Does the Bitcoin world need more services like this?

Cloud Computing, collaboration software, cloud technology …

The Internet has its roots in the 1960s, but it wasn’t until the early 1990s that it had any relevance for businesses. The World Wide Web was born in 1991, and in 1993 a web browser called Mosaic was released that allowed users to view web pages that included graphics as well as text. This heralded the first company web sites and not surprisingly, most of these belonged to companies involved in computing and technology.

As Internet connections got faster and more reliable, a new type of company called an Application Service Provider or ASP started to appear. ASPs took existing business applications and ran them for their customers. The ASP would buy the computing hardware and keeping the application running, and the customer would pay a monthly fee to access it over the Internet.

But it wasn’t until right at the end of the 1990s that cloud computing as we know it today appeared. That’s when salesforce.com introduced its own multi-tenant application which was specifically designed:

Since then the cloud has grown and grown: in 2013 worldwide spending on cloud servicets ran to an estimated $47 billion. And that’s set to more than double to over $108 billion by 2017 as companies invest in cloud services as the foundation for new, competitive offerings.

Cloud Storage Providers That Are Responsible & Cheap

Long story cut shorts. Below are the 6 most important factors that I consider when Im picking up our online backup services or best cloud storage providers.

Lets check them out now, shall we:

Most of the features above should be a must if not all of them comes in standards when you are seeking for a decent online backup services nowadays.

I know its hard to fit all of them into one bill but Ive got some that I would recommend if you are seriously looking for any cloud storage services.

Check out YesBackup Review.

Things turn nasty when my laptop was having a hard drive failure. Blue screen appear and the next thing I know; I was unable to boot start my laptop anymore.

That was the day I did not want to go thru again.

There were hundreds of photos that I took for leisure, for my works, and for my vacations as well. Not to mention the songs and movies that I dug so hard and paid for. The worst part which I felt terrible is:

Lesson learned (in a hard and pain way). So, I began searching for online backup storage services. If youre looking for the same service as I did before, do take my advice seriously.

I had personally tested all of them before I dive into Justcloud.

Check myfull review here.

I must admit that I did not try out every cloud provider on the market. However, I did pick a few that I like the most from my testing and try out.

If you are an ordinary home user that need just normal and cost saving cloud storage services like I did.

Ive got something for you here in my top 5 personal cloud storage.

Heres the top cloud storage that Ive tested out. I had make out a comparison table that matter to me (for you too).

Nonetheless, they are all very good cloud storage service providers.

Reference: pcmag.com

After many hours and evening spent in digging information and researching, I never imagine that data losses could be due to those reasons except for the hardware failure. Well, I guess like it or not things happen unexpectedly. Heres the quick fact:

Hardware failure 40%

Human error 29%

Software corruption 13%

Theft 9% Computer viruses 6% Fires/floods and etc 3%

Hope this can give you a head up on what might be happening. Anyway, after that incident, I find out that the cloud storage and backup is very important. Yup, will need to spend a few more bucks every month but compare to the thing you will lose, I think I can live with just a few ten bucks away every month.

The needs differ from each individual. What I find best might not be the case for you.

You might be looking for extra security while the others might be opting for a bigger storage capacity.

For whatever the reasons, theres always a guideline. You need to prioritize your needs and youll get the one that best suits you.

For me, I had summarized all the best cloud providers based on these 4 criteria.

All of the above criteria are from my own opinion. However, I believe a good product and service should not be far away from what Ive listed above.

You might be asking how about the storage capacity; shouldnt it be on the list as well?

Well, for all the cloud providers that GoodCloudStorage had chosen, I believe the storage and backup capacity is more than enough.

My advice to all my readers has always beenDo not backup everything, backup whats important!

With this rule of thumb, you will never run out of space and slow in speed. Things will run smooth and easy when you did the right thing.

It has always been in the best interest for you all here and I hope my little recommendations and tips can be beneficial and useful.

It require only your email address. You can try them for 2 weeks, totally free and no commitment. Upgrade to paying customer when you are satisfied enough. You might even get special discount during the free trial period.

Decent Cloud Computing Earnings Put This ETF In Focus – First …

The cloud computing industry is shining. Over the past couple of years, this specialized corner of the tech space has taken giant strides and motivated many companies to develop cloud infrastructure.

Cloud computing is a procedure by which data or software is stored outside of a computer, but can be easily accessed anywhere/anytime via the Internet. This process is gaining traction, as it can cut IT costs of companies by removing expensive servers and trimming maintenance staff.

Thanks to the enormous growth in the amount of data, complexity of data formats and the need to scale up resources at regular intervals compelled several companies to turn to cloud computing vendors.

Research firm IDC projected last year that public IT cloud services spending will surge at a 5-year CAGR of 22.8% to over $127 billion in 2018. The rate of growth is six times higher than the broader IT market. In 2018, public IT cloud services will comprise over 50% of global software and storage development.

No wonder, the bullish industry prospects will be reflected in corporate earnings. Investors also have a dedicated ETF to this specific industry – the First Trust ISE Cloud Computing Index ETF (NASDAQ:SKYY).

The product comprises top-notch tech giants having considerable presence in the cloud business that have also delivered stellar results. Let’s take a look at some of the cloud-heavy stocks, dig deeper into their cloud computing segment and see how can impact the cloud computing ETF SKYY (see all Technology ETFs here).

SKYY has amassed about $490 million in assets so far, and charges 60 bps in fees. Year to date, the product has advanced over 6.7%. The portfolio has a tilt toward software and Internet companies, though technology hardware and IT service firms also pull it off nicely.

In total, the fund holds about 36 securities in its basket. Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) is SKYY’s top holding. The company beat on both lines in Q3 following blockbuster results in Q2. A steady cloud computing business led revenues to skyrocket 78.4% in Q3 after an 81% jump in Q2.

The division generated almost as much operating income as Amazon’s entire North America e-commerce business. Notably, Amazon Web Services (AWS) is way ahead of all players in public cloud services that are rushing to draw near. The shares soared over 6.2% following the earnings release (as of October 23, 2015).

Amazon has a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy). Further, the stock has a Zacks Growth and Momentum Style Score of “A”.

Another cloud-heavy hot tech-stock – Alphabet Inc. (GOOG, GOOGL) – occupies 4.92% of SKYY and takes the second position. The company’s cloud business lies within “Other Revenues”, which increased 11% year over year to $1.89 billion in Q3. As quoted by management, “we are scaling all of these apps for over a billion users, we are powering the infrastructure, which will drive our cloud business.”

Shares of Alphabet rose over 5.6% on October 23. This Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) stock is up about 35.6% so far this year and has a Zacks Growth score of “B” and Momentum score of “A”.

Juniper (NYSE:JNPR) is yet another cloud-based holding of SKYY, which takes the fourth position in the fund with 4.30% weight. Juniper posted better-than-expected third-quarter 2015 results on both lines and issued an optimistic guidance for the fourth quarter.

The company stated that the better-than-expected top line was mainly driven by higher demand from cloud and cable service providers. This Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) stock has a Growth, Value and Momentum score of “B”. Post earnings, JNPR jumped over 5.8% on October 23, 2015.

Another player, Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX), which also happens to be the world’s largest video streaming company, takes the eighth position in the fund with 3.96% weight. Though this company disappointed investors this season, its outlook is still optimistic. This Zacks Rank #3 stock is up about 105% this year.

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) shares were up over 10% on October 23 following the release of 1Q16 earnings. Its bottom line beat the estimate, but the top line lagged. Microsoft’s Azure and Office 365 are almost neck and neck with Amazon. Moreover, the company comes second in terms of compute capacity in the cloud. Revenues from Azure grew 135% this season. This Zacks Rank #3 stock takes 2.92% of SKYY.

EMC Corporation (NYSE:EMC) beat on the top line, but its bottom line matched the estimate. EMC, which holds 3.61% share of SKYY, is being acquired by Dell and a private equity firm Silver Lake.

Moreover, EMC and VMware Inc. (NYSE:VMW) announced their plans to form a new cloud company by spinning out Virtustream. Investors should note that VMW holds 2.45% share of SKYY. The company’s adjusted earnings grew a robust 28.6% on a year-over-year basis, while revenues were up 10.4%.

So, for investors keen on playing this thriving cloud computing space, the time is ripe for building a position in SKYY. The fund has a promising profile and could expose one to the broader universe of cloud computing.
