From ApplePay to AppleCurrency?

Published by on september 24, 2014

I predict that Apple will introduce their own AppleCurrency ONE year after they introduce ApplePay.

Why?
Apple has created a shopping system of products where everything is connected. The problem for Apple is that the demand they create is bigger than what Apple can provide with products (money paid for complimented products to Apples products and the culture connected to Apple is enormously large).

Brand image?
The revolution should be led by icon brands as Apple. Below the surface our economic system is questioned and is not stabile enough. It’s only a matter of time before a major corporation creates its own currency.

How?
AppleCurrency can be an offline currency with real coins. The coins can have the legend Steve Jobs face, further the shape of the coins can be as their Apple logo (with the bite).
Digital it can be used to buy products on Apple.com, Apple Store etc but also in other online shops.

What is the point when you can pay with ApplePay anyway?
Money makes money and Apple could make, control and increase their profit. AppleCurrency could change the world by being a powerful financial system that makes the world spin around the Apple.

The Apple ecosystem is like a swamp. The more we interact with it, the deeper we are drawn into it. Fortunately, it is a very lovely swamp.

Watch Simon Anholts Tedtalk: Good is the new way of looking at the world

Published by on augusti 4, 2014

Simon AnholtOver the years I had the honor to get to know Simon Anholt. I always got a sense that Simon got a IQ gift, that could have an effect on the world. After watching his amazing Tedtalk that got over one million views I understand that he is now making that good change that I believe he is here to contribute with.

Watch Simon Anholts Tedtalk. In this speech is Simon elegantly pointing out: Good is the new way of looking at the world!

Policy advisor Simon Anholt has dreamed up an unusual scale to get governments thinking outwardly: The Good Country Index. In a riveting and funny talk, he answers the question, ”Which country does the most good?” The answer may surprise you (especially if you live in the US or China).

I hope Simons next book will be named: From Bad To Good.

Thanks to Alex Krause for sending this video link.
