The first thing I would point out is very low fees for both the customer and seller. The second thing would be the fact that accepting payments with crypto and Hive or CTP tokens in particular opens them up to a wider customer base since there are people who are unable to have bank accounts or credit cards but can use Hive and CTP tokens to make purchases. And the advantage for sellers of being able to get their money instantly and not have to wait 30, 60 or 90 days to get the money in their bank accounts. And they can't get shut down either. So, there's that too.
I have experiences only from the customer side with CTP and Hive. Very positive experiences. For example, I paid for a subscription with Firepay and the owner flaked so I was having trouble getting a hold of him. Blain showed me the link in the receipt email and how to find my subscription in Firepay and cancel it from there. Very easy to do.

Just wondering, what is Firepay? I don't think I have heard of it before.

Before Hivepay, there's Firepay! it's an IPN, an easier way to go through payments for cards and crypto, and a use-case for CTP Tokens was born as well. Some advertising programs and my program for example uses it. Hivepay came afterward and this one is more complete meaning with it you can accept other Hive Engine Tokens, HIVE and HBD.
I'm using both at the moment on my program so I accept a few other tokens besides CTP :)

I really don't have a lot of money changing hands. I like the fact that if someone doesn't like you they cant get you shut down. To me that alone is a plus. I also love the fact that there is no waiting period to get your payment.

The whole no censorship thing is huge for me. I am so tired of being told that I can't view something because it offends someone else. I am not forcing them to watch it. Whatever happened to being able to ignore what you don't like? My husband likes scary movies and I don't. He watches them while I work. 😀

Yeah I love the fact that there is no waiting. No need for approval of your bank to get your funds. It's 3 seconds, and it's yours.

I know, right?! How awesome is that?! 😀

that is a very good point about the people who are unable to have bank accounts or credit cards but could use hive and CTP.

Having access to banks and credit cards is another one of those things that I took for granted. Until recently I never knew it was an issue for people in other countries. 😀

Why this chain?

  • Community. We're solid. People help one another.
  • Rewards. Use Hive like a regular blog, and take the crypto and use it to purchase off-chain ads. IE: the content pays for it's own promotion once you get to that level.
  • Choices. - Don't like ecency? Use Dapplr. Don't like proofofbrain.io or hive.blog? Use peakD.
  • Freedom. - Don't have to worry about your content getting pulled down. Sure if you write garbage people will downvote, but entrepreneurs usually don't. ;)

The freedom of choosing a front end wasn't really one I considered but it makes sense. There are just so many different ways to view the same blog and you can just pick the one that fits you best.

Right? You can also choose a front end depending on how it works with your phone.

there are plenty of choice here on the hive platform for any business or interest.

I agree. I really like the choices that we have for posting content

Brilliant stuff man!

The choices truly are remarkable!

First, this blockchain is free and it takes just your time for you to understand it.
Second, there are so many platforms that will suit ♥️ your needs from programming to content creation, and then art.
Third, it's full of people that are waiting to like your post and also comment for you.
Lastly, You are actually get paid for...doing all of this.
COME ON!! HOW DOPE IS THAT 🤷‍♀️.

LOL It's so true. At the end of it, it's like a bonus...Oh by the way, you can get paid here too LOLOL

It is awesome to be able to get paid for commenting. It is Dope fore sure

Another stream (passive) of income for your business is a very good point

Thanks 😊

Those are some great reasons and you make it far easier to understand compare to my response.

It is free to use and you can start earning right away and I really like that it has a practical use.

Use while you earn. So true.

This blockchain would be a great starting point for an online business person that is new to crypto currency. Here why:

  • Knowledge sharing - Here in the CTP community there are several individuals that have already been there and done that and they are more than willing to share their experiences with you. This will help the online business owner have a greater chance at success than if they were doing the trial and error on their own.
  • Instant International exposure - to get your online business exposed to the international audience without the cost is a huge plus for a business
  • Low cost - The tools that are used for marketing an online business are mostly available here on the hive blockchain for no cost. This will lower your overall cost to run your online business.
  • multiple forms of payment including crypto - Accepting multiple forms of payments is big for an online business. Crypto is getting to be more widely available to everyone.
  • Knowledge about crypto not needed - the person that is brand new to crypto can learn about it right here from people that already know the ins and outs.

I could keep going and going. I think the choice is very clear....... Hive platform/CTPTalk for your online business needs.

P.S. You also get paid to use this platform...LOL

Thanks those are all really good reasons

I think it's an excellent starting point I'll give you my experience I don't have big money and honestly I don't like banks very much. Banks always have very high fees with papers and more papers to fill for such simple things, plus many restrictions. Here something natural freer more liberated. It can be done by everyone, whether rich or poor, I have a lot or little money. What matters is starting and even here with little simplicity is easy in today's life. So it's a huge reason to adopt this free style of money market and untie the banks.

Yea the fees are always an issue and why I like programs with less fees. In the past I didn't exactly want to trade the stock market due to the fees but it has drastically dropped. They do sell your order flow though for the reduced fees though.

Barrier to entry compared to the red tape needed to have accounts with banks. Agreed, less restrictions is a major selling point.

I think HIVE is the best place to get started because it is feeless. Also assuming you make any mistake, you can earn it back over time as you blog about your experiences. When you do blog about it, you are also giving a chance to anyone else in the community to give you feedback and get better.

Obviously, the community is the first thing that pops out...But digging a little deeper, why I feel Hive is the perfect starting point is the fact you can get your feet wet, and actually 'mine' or accumulate some of this stuff while you are dipping your toes in.

Nothing out of pocket, which to me is a huge win. Entrepreneurs can tap into the dapps as well, but start seeing the options here without anything out of pocket while learning how to integrate blockchain into their businesses.

Yes no money out of pocket is awesome even though putting a little in at first can accelerate your progress.
Being able to use it for free is a great way to start

Spent no money and earn friends, community, crypto currency.
Also followers without showing skins
😆

LOL If I showed my skin..People would downvote me for sure LOL

😂😂

For a new business owner with limited funds with nothing out of pocket and all of these resources to choose from. Why not pick the hive platform and CTPTalk for your business? No brainer...

Yea nothing out of pocket is good since everything is hosted on the block chain. The only thing that might not be covered is your own site if its outside HIVE.

To start any business and keep it running you need people. It is impossible to build or run any business if you do not have access to people. To build an online business, that means you would have to build your list...your own little community.

We always hear about the importance of building your list, but where do you start? Starting on this blockchain will give you immediate access to a supportive community from where you can start building your list.

It will also enable you to start building your brand by engaging with members in various communities available on this blockchain. Find the community most suitable for your business and start engaging.

By engaging within the communities on this blockchain, you will not only start learning and expanding your knowledge about crypto, but you will also start earning crypto (before you sold a single product).

And lastly, not only would you be dealing with people within these communities who are willing to do business in cryptocurrencies, but you will also learn about and get access to payment options such as Firepay and Hivepay, enabling you to make payments and accept payments in cryptocurrencies and tokens.

Blockchain is the place to be its a no brainer. Earn by engaging and posting. Blockchain and Crypto perfect match
