Falcone: ‘Service Providers Are Going Away from the Salon’
As Falcone noted to us, more and more beauty professionals “want to be their own boss and freelancers.” With that dynamic, though, Falcone said there comes distinct “pain points” for the professionals trying to switch from salons to self-employment.
The ManeStream solution to these pain points? Transactional rewards courtesy of a cryptocurrency token.
It’s a novel and interesting proposal to say the least, and Falcone gave Bitsonline a great primer on the project. Want to see more? Watch the whole interview.
Growth of the North American Bitcoin Conference
The North American Bitcoin Conference (TNABC) is regarded as the original major Bitcoin event in the USA, and possibly the world. Held annually in Miami every January since 2013, it staked that city’s claim as Bitcoin’s fun and business capital — growing from a few hundred bitcoin enthusiasts into a gathering of thousands, including several high-profile industry leaders. It’s a must-attend event on the blockchain calendar.
Produced by Dr. Moe Levin’s Keynote Events team, it now covers all disruptive blockchain technology issues — including smart contracts, ICOs, fintech, regulation and investment. TNABC also has international sister events, such as World Blockchain Forum in London.
