  5. 5. PROBLEM HIGHLIGHTS P O I N T O F S A L E S A P P 1.  Not all merchants happy with Standalone payment processors 2.  Customers not happy with QR code scanning 3.  Require both parties to be online O N L I N E P A Y M E N T S 1.  10min – 60min confirmation is too long 2.  Same as (2) 3.  Same as (3) How do we fix these problems?
  6. 6. POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS W O R K W I T H T R A D I T I O N A L / S T A R T U P P O S P R O V I D E R S A S S U M E “ S A F E T Y ” O F B I T C O I N “Making you wait for confirmations would virtually eliminate our risk,” Skelton writes, “but we’re confident that with digital products like ours the risk is already acceptably low.”
  7. 7. 1ST WORLD VS 3RD WORLD MINDSET 1 S T W O R L D “Bitcoin is a new technology that disrupt current payment methods” 3 R D W O R L D “Bitcoin is a new technology that can connect the unbanked to the banking system” SO WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
  8. 8. PROBLEM: DIFFICULT BRINGING BITCOIN TO THE 3RD WORLD...WHY? •  Just in South East Asia alone, only 1 in 3 people have 3G phones / Smartphones. •  Most payment startups focus on scaling due to vested interests. •  Funding is needed for payment startups to scale, yet majority of the funding is in Silicon Valley

  11. 11. MINDSET •  Understand what bitcoin is originally built for •  Understand the mission of your bitcoin startup •  Understand your own mission
  12. 12. FUNDING •  Incorrect funding structure can kill your startup •  Bitcoin space is still very small, so the one with the funds, can last longer than others e.g. Amazon in the 90s. •  Payment startups require critical mass, and it takes time. •  Network, network and network!
