The Barter

I would have to say, Kijiji is one of the more popular sites online today. Whatever you are looking for from housing, rentals, work, products for sale are posted by folks who list their Ad with a handy email reply box. Some prices are fixed while others are on a barter basis when a buyer and seller hook up to discuss the final cost.

The owners of Kijiji, which means village in Swahilie, must be very pleased with their success and now spending big bucks of their own on TV Ads.

A warning I have, which has happened a few times in the city here, is like a recent incident where a meet was setup in a Mall parking lot. The buyer, who intended to buy jewelry was robbed of his cash at gun point and beaten. Police never did catch up with the crooks. Always be careful about the meet surroundings. Try and avoid getting setup because we are talking about money and the greed that lurks behind it with some people.

In the NHL Playoffs, the 2nd round is winding down with some clutch games happening while the Ottawa Senators and Edmonton Oilers, the two Canadian team left … fight to get to the semi finals.

Bitcoin is in the news everyday with steady updates. Almost information overload with what’s happening with the Digital Coin around the world, currently below $1600 US in value. I’ve used Payza and SolidTrustPay for years and both of these money processors allow me to fund and withdraw with Bitcoin, values shown in US dollars. So, those are options I have available to ‘move’ my BTC.

Meanwhile, the Biz is moving along, where it’s always about going forward with the finances with no rear view mirrors. Sometimes at a slower pace than usual but my online fund ‘build’ continues.
