Hi to anyone who will be reading this post!
I cross browsed the web and found a new online community with a great GOAL: get rid of our society system based on $$$, pasta, fric et j’en passe… This new player, called pickabit (with its 1st beta version), is the only e-commerce site on the Internet that enables anyone, anywhere in the world, to buy and sell almost anything – without banks, credit cards, and other such headaches.
SO are we going to see a revolution happening in the near (more long-term right…) future? Just stop a second and imagine a life where you can go by, finding any kind of products, services for its real value: yourself and your amazing skills! And whenever you need to get on with your own goals from delivering outstanding artwork pieces to defying marketing strategies for your online business sounds good right?
Is it utopia or a soon-to-be proven reality? Whatever will be coming next, it is nice and refreshing to find out that people out there want to thrive on the basis of mutual trust, respect, honesty, and integrity. It also explains the fact that your identity is verified through your cell phone number before you can start trading. Unlike what our contemporary world is based on: where you come from and what is your background, etc… an endless topic I won’t start with right now ;-) or I will call it a novel), pickabit philosophy is simply to get rid of banks and those based on GREED, that in so many ways are ruining people lives. I love their explanation about the bit unit: the bit unit is pickabit’s unit of value and items, is non-convertible, and is inflation proof.
The message is plain and straightforward: we people are neither consumable nor can’t we be devaluated as individuals.
Now about the website, I like the logo and the colours used but I am not totally convinced by the font type and the Pickabit Members presentation. Surfing on the web, doing my little investigation, I found out that the company launch was either 2010 or 2011 with offices in Amsterdam and Tel Aviv. And the working force is from all over the world. I am happy to share this with anybody on the look for something that stands out!
