StormShop now supports Litecoin (LTC), the world’s fifth-largest cryptocurrency. The e-commerce platform lets consumers earn cryptocurrency rewards for shopping online. Finally, users get a chance to gain upwards of 40% back in LTC. This can happen if they shop at top retailers like eBay, Macy’s, GameStop, Princess Cruise Lines, and Microsoft.
StormShop is a reward-based e-commerce web plugin from Seattle-based StormX. They integrated the plugin with more than 290 merchants across some industries, such as travel, food, and entertainment.
Once users shop online at the participating retailers, they could earn cashback in Litecoin for every purchase anywhere and using any device.
StormX CEO Simon Yu stated they designed the platform to enable users to monetize their online activities. He explained, “Getting the chance to work with Charlie and the Litecoin Foundation to reward our users with Litecoin is another step towards mass adoption. Consumers spend so much time and money online.”
Yu also added that users share their data freely, which ensures they don’t leave any cash on the table with their online interactions is a core tenet of what they are building at StormX. In addition to that, they can now reward users with an increasing number of the most secure and popularly adopted crypto globally for their online interactions.
For quite some time, the firm has been ramping up joint efforts. It plans to make crypto a famous payment method for everyday items.
Then, StormShop revealed that they’d added brands in the platform such as Tom and Teddy, Halo Hair, Designed by Humans, JClub.com, Makeup Eraser, Maurices, Orig3n, Saucony, and Ooh La Luxe.
In the announcement, the integration of Litecoin will also merge with StormPlay. So far, it has earned users 249 BTC, 843 ETH, and 843.7 million STORM for finishing microtasks. Binance.US iOS Apps
More on crypto news, Binance.US, a trading platform of Binance in the U.S., is asking its users to beta test the soon to come Binance.US iOS app. On December 18, Binance.US tweeted the announcement that the iOS app is now in the beta testing phase. And now, the firm is inviting its active community to help in testing the app.
Moreover, the beta testing phase will provide Binance.US the possibility to address potential flaws. Following this, they will have them resolved before launching the app to a broader audience. Then, beta testers will use the app in a specific period. They will report any bugs or issues encountered and give feedback about the app. This will help Binance.US to think whether the app is ready for full release or not.
Now, interested people who plan to participate in the beta testing phase can apply at the Binance.US Twitter account. The date is not clear on when the beta testing will be available for Android mobile phone users.
Also, Binance.US has not given any specifics about the iOS app.
Furthermore, in early November, Binance.US revealed that the exchange offers its customers the opportunity to buy cryptocurrencies with a debit card. And this joins existing U.S. dollar on-ramp and off-ramps, including the automated clearinghouse (ACH) and bank wire.
10 Easy Tips to Help You Profit From Your Website.
Hundreds of thousands of webmasters across the world make money online with their websites. Why not you? Here are 10 easy tips that you can use on your website to make it profitable. As with any good website however, you first need quality original content!
Google AdSense – Make money selling advertising space. While banner ads are not worth your time for the most part, Google AdSense is. Many web site owners make a comfortable living off of AdSense profit alone.
Affiliate Marketing – Make money referring your website traffic to other websites. Don’t have a product? That is 100% O.K. Just add someone else product to your site by joining an affiliate program and forget about it. If you have related content (free information) you will see a slow trickle of income from your affiliate links.
Write an eBook – Sell your own idea or product. I know it sounds like a day dream, but people do this all the time. In fact, it is the most common method that people use to make money. Write an eBook, offer consultations, or make something people will use. In this category, you are only limited by your imagination.
Create an online directory – Sell text links. Add a directory area to your site and offer to place links to other web sites for a small fee.
Become a Paid Blogger. Offer to blog for companies. Blogging is fast becoming an important link building strategy for online companies. There are hundreds of small businesses that could benefit from a professional blog but, do not have the resources to hire a full time employee. You have a website, put it to use!
Open your own eBay store. Buy low, sell high. There is no easier place to sell than online with your own eBay store. You can concentrate on a particular type of product like coins and antiques or you can sell a wide variety.
Host an online competition. Offer prizes for the first, second and third place winners. Your competition can be on almost anything. Think of a way to offer a competition, create a small entry fee and you are set!
Create a member only area. You can create a members only site about anything from Fan Clubs, Online Newsletters, Courses and Training, Stock Trading Tips, Dating Sites, Personal Advice, Horoscopes, Family Trees, and so on. Again, your only limitation is your imagination. If you have a site already up and running, offer something in your paid member’s area that they cannot easily get for free.
Begin a paid advice service. Free information is great and will draw readers to your site. Once there, help the reader out with some basic information. Save the real “meat” for those that are willing to pay a small fee.
Sell your site. Why drag on a project for years when you can get in, get out and turn a quick (albeit smaller) profit? Create your site, get it listed in the search engines, make sure you get a few dollars a week in online advertising and sell your site for a few thousand dollars.

(NewsUSA) – As 2020 approaches, make the new year and new decade the time to turn heads in your profession by boosting your leadership skills.
Making a commitment to your professional fitness doesn’t have to take a bite out of your bottom line, either.
The Professional Development Academy, an online leadership training company with top-notch faculty from business, industry, and government, offers programs in areas including high performance leadership, frontline information technology leadership, and maximizing your personal brand, all for a fraction of the cost of a traditional MBA program and easily accessible at your convenience.
The Professional Development Academy Faculty includes individuals who are proven outstanding leaders in a range of fields, including Colin Powell, former Secretary of State and retired 4-star general; Cheryl Smith, IT expert and former CIO of McKesson Corp.; and Peter H. Thomas, one of the most savvy and successful entrepreneurs of the modern era, whose six-decade career highlights include founding Century 21 Real Estate Canada, and the Four Seasons Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona, along with developing emerging companies such as Dogtopia.
Some top tips from the Professional Development Academy experts:
“Perpetual optimism is a force multiplier,” says General Powell. When you bring an optimistic attitude to the office every day, others will follow your lead. The Professional Development Academy curriculum includes practical insights from Powell and other world-known thought leaders highlighting the power of a positive mindset.
Smith notes that the best leaders don’t just dictate, they listen.
“Ask for feedback,” she emphasizes. “Then listen and learn.” Constructive and critical feedback can feel harsh, but it can provide tremendous insight for future growth.
Finally, be true to your values, says Peter Thomas.
“To be truly successful, ensure your decisions at work align with your core values. When your values are clear, your decisions will be easier,” he says, and “be open to opportunities and be ready to move on them.”
Starting in 2020, the Professional Development Academy is partnering with Peter H. Thomas to launch the Peter Thomas High Performance Leadership Academy, a 12-week course divided into “learning bursts” that can be completed in 4-5 hours per week at any time to suit busy schedules. The course is designed to share Thomas’s secrets for success at nurturing an entrepreneurial spirit in conjunction with a values-based life.

(StatePoint) Is your New Year’s resolution the big step of starting a business? One of the first things you’ll need to do is build a website. Today a website is not only your brand, but it also provides the tools you need to operate your business, and is the central point for you to communicate with your customers.
Web development platform Wix recently took a look at website creation data for the U.S. in 2019 and found some interesting facts. One significant statistic found is that about 50 percent more websites were built the week after January 1 than the week prior. That means that if you decide to start a business early in 2020, you likely won’t be going it alone.
A key website feature to keep in mind when building your site is live chat. Almost half of sites implement a live chat feature to communicate with current customers and attract potential new customers. In any business, it’s important from the beginning to be responsive to customers, and doing so can be a key differentiator in growing your business.
