THINGS USED AS CURRENCY BEFORE THERE WAS MONEY OR VTPASS

Ask any brilliant, economic mind out there what money or currency is. And they will go all out to say something like this:

Money is a current medium of exchange in form of coins and banknotes. Also, it refers to the assets, resources or wealth owned by something or someone.

One word that catches one’s eyes in this scholarly definition is the use of the word ‘current’. Somehow, this presupposes the idea that money as a medium of exchange evolves from time to time. Although we now employ coins and banknotes as our current currency. This might yet get to change in times to come.

Or has the change come already?

Well, steadily and surely, the currency/money change is happening. In fact, it is so in the air. First, there was the cashless policy. And now, there are online wallets from where you can save, withdraw and even spend money. Invariably, at the forefront of this cashless currency is VTpass.

VTpass is an online payment platform where anyone can pay for their everyday services. With www.vtpass.com, you can buy your MTN, GLO, AIRTEL and 9MOBILE airtime and data subscription. And also, you can also pay your electricity bills, DSTV, STARTIMES and GOTV cable tv subscriptions as well as perform other transactions.

And yes, as a registered user, VTpass also serves as an online wallet. Not only can you save any amount of money in a safe and secure wallet that belongs solely to you. You can also pay for services right from this wallet. What this means is that without having to withdraw from the bank and the likes, you can settle your everyday expenses. Right from your VTpass wallet, you can pay your electricity bills, tv subscriptions, data and airtime.

Evidently, the next medium of exchange is already on your doorstep with www.vtpass.com.

But then, it would be good if we took a time travel to the older generations to know just what they spent. If anything else, the coins and banknotes that seem to pervade everywhere were not in anyway what the Amazons and traditional people of the past spent.

So, here are the forms of money that were spent back in the days.

Let’s start with the most familiar of things:

  1. Gold: Now this is very familiar but rare. When gold was very abundant in African countries like Gold Coast (Ghana) and non-African countries like America’s California, it was of rare currency value. currencyJust like people would do anything for a lot of banknotes, it was not unusual to see people becoming slave miners just to get the feel of gold.
  2. Silver: Along this line, refined silver was also a valuable means to buy and sell.silver,currency
  3. Beads: Now going way back in time, beads were also of very weighty value.
  4. Stones: Now it is getting to sound ludicrous, right? Well, wait till you see others.
  5. cowry: This is quite familiar and precious. It was especially known with African countries like Nigeria. Now cowries are merely used as adornments, can you imagine?cowry,currency
  6. Shell: Don’t be put off. Using shell as a medium of exchange is actually the same as using cowries. Maybe even more precious. These shells, mostly clam and conch shells, are usually beautiful and exotic. Something you would want to keep with you, even. Now, you can simply find them at the beach. But this does not reduce their value anyway.shell,currency
  7. Copper: It’s a wonder if the people in the past ever knew that copper would count for something in the electrical world. Well, whether they knew or not, they thought of it as a valuable money medium.
  8. Salt: It was quite a luxury getting to have your food sweetened with salt. So yes, it served as a medium of exchange in the past. This might be due to its manner of discovery and the very fact that it was hard to refine and all.
  9. Paper:  The discovery of paper from trees created a very mad rush for it. It was a marvel. Well, not like this is any different from what we have. What we have now are faces printed on paper.
  10. Animals: Now this has nothing to do with the buying and selling of animals for festivities. This actually involves using animals as cows and sheeps as currencies. Not only that, even fishes and animal dungs were means of trade by barter. The dungs of bats, in particular, were very expensive currencies.
  11. Plants: The people of the past hadn’t a care in the world so they could afford to trade barley for tea plants. Just as they could mess around with using peppercorns and rice as money values. Now rice was quite something then.
  12. Blood: Don’t puke at this one. Because any day, anytime, the human blood will always be valuable and a viable currency. Blood is life itself; it restores life to a dying person. It’s no wonder we have a blood bank. And if kidneys, lungs, hearts, hair and the likes are now donated, why couldn’t the people of the past sell blood.

So we are now past all these old currencies and money medium. And we are even walking into a new era of online exchanges. Indeed, change is the one constant thing in life. Vtpass forewords this new line of movement with the VTpass wallet. By being a registered member of www.vtpass.com, you can save, withdraw and transfer money from your VTpass wallet.

TRADITIONAL WAYS OF COMMUNICATION

Tuesday always has a traditional feel to its turned up rhythm. Blaring music, plugged in conversations and social media gags take a higher volume. And this is all in the hope of getting the right flavour to spice up the week. So, in more ways than one, modern communication has made Tuesdays and every other day so much fun. Anyway, communication gets even better with VTpass. You can easily get enough data or airtime for your numerous social media activities by just logging on to www.vtpass.com. The way it goes these days, it seems that besides the modern days of communicating, there has never been any other way of communicating.

But we all know that this is not the case, really. There have always been various ways of communicating in what we can call the traditional days. But not only that, these traditional methods synergise with the very modern means of communication.

Here is how:

So, traditional communication has to do with those communication routes that used to be and still exist in rural regions. It usually involves verbal media more than any other medium. Of course, modern communication is more concerned with the use of machines and technology to affect communication.

To share ideas, the people of the past would usually do engage in

conflict resolutions, cultural festivities and didactic artistry like oral literature that incorporates mystical rituals, folktales, drama, dance and the likes.

Through the intertwining of these methods, a message receives amplification in the clearest form possible.

You would agree that this, in a way, bears similarity with the methods through which the modern people communicate. To pass an information, people take to the social media platforms with posts that give information as well as entertain. In fact, everybody goes to these platforms for various reasons. While some just want to have fun, others take to telling people about what to do. But hey, one thing stands certain- creativity and entertainment drive an information to the fore.

just like we have in the modern communication arena, there were also various platforms through which messages were passed traditionally.

The market square: Apart from the original purport of buying and selling, the market square serves well as a communication arena. Women who have picked information from various places spread it around with the word of mouth. Just like the rural arena, VTpass serves as a platform through which you can pay for your everyday services like airtime, data, electricity bills and tv subscriptions. And of course, this helps you connect to the various other communicative platforms.

Town criers: This has always been a veritable way of communicating in the past.

Social Functions: Through social functions, information is easily passed around.

There are also non-verbal ways of passing information traditionally. For example, we have the idiophones which have to do with high sounding instruments that produce their own messages just by beating. The Yoruba talking drum, the Igbo Ikoro, Ogene and Ekwe are examples of these. Symbolic displays and gestures are also traditional non-verbal ways of communication.

It’s good to reminisce about how the past traditional ways of communication. But it is evident that the world has since moved from these methods to a modern means. VTpass offers you quick access to your favourite communication platforms, be it the cable TV or internet. And that too in a convenient way. Just by logging on to www.vtpass.com, you can pay for your everyday services. You can pay your electricity bills, DSTV, STARTIMES, GOTV subscriptions in a jiffy. You can also pay for your MTN, AIRTEL, GLO, 9MOBILE airtime and data and get that fast connection to the world out there.

black fridayOne important event that precedes Black Friday is Thanksgiving day. Thanksgiving day is a day of giving thanks for the blessing of the previous year. It is a national holiday celebrated in the United States, Canada, Liberia and the Caribbean Islands. The set date is usually the fourth Thursday of November in the United States.

So, you can begin to imagine when Black Friday really is. Well, it is the Friday right after the Thursday of Thanksgiving. This means Black Friday falls on the last Friday of the month November. It varies between the days 23rd to 26th of every November. This year, Black Friday falls on the 24th of November.

WHY BLACK FRIDAY?

black fridaySo, the name Black Friday came about in a shopping context where it was used to describe the heavy and congestive traffic that always occurred on the day after Thanksgiving. The term was first used in 1961. And even till now, it is still being used. Black Friday is usually the busiest shopping day of the year. This is because people see it as the unofficial precedence to Christmas.  Again, Black Friday is usually a day off for employees. So, virtually all retailers in the country, big and small, offer various limited and cheap sales.

JEFF AND MACKENZIE BEZOS: VTPASS PROFILES

The world seems to always revolve around those it considers powerful and rich. And when it comes to power and wealth, one person that easily comes to mind is Jeff Bezos. Well, you might know Bezos as the founder of the world’s largest online retail company, Amazon. But there is actually more to him. And yes, there is his ‘resourceful, smart, brainy wife MacKenzie Bezos (alias Tuttle). This power couple has a lot of history hovering them which you would want to know about.

In like manner, VTpass is an online retail payment platform. And it solely deals with the provision of everyday services. This includes our everyday airtime and data services, cable TV subscriptions, electricity bills and so on. Hence, just by logging on to www.vtpass.com, you get to buy your MTN, AIRTEL, 9MOBILE, GLO airtime and data subscriptions. You can also renew your DSTV, STARTIMES AND GOTV subscriptions and electricity bills. In this light, we celebrate the person of Jeff Bezos as a success in the online trading sphere.

WHO IS JEFF BEZOS?

Jeff BezosJeff Bezos has an originally lengthy name which is spelt out as Jeffrey Preston Jorgensen in 1964. He was birthed by Ted and Jorgensen and Jacklyn Preston, who was 17 and with a rich heritage. After a year plus, Jacklyn left off her marriage with Ted and went for Miguel Mike Bezos. This caused Jeff’s panegyric name to simply become Jeff Bezos (not like it matters anyway).

Even as a child, Jeff showed deep interest in scientific matters. And all through his schooling, he pursued his interest. So that he went on to study electrical engineering and computer science at Princeton University.

BezosAfter school, Bezos worked in the computer science field and also ventured into the financial business, international trade and a hedge fund.

1994 was the year when Jeff Bezos founded Amazon in his garage at Seattle. And the rest is history. Right now, he owns nearly 17% of Amazon. His net worth is $95.4 bill. At a time, Bezos briefly topped Forbes’ ranks of the world’s richest in July 2017, as his online retailer’s stock surged.

SPACE TRAVEL

BezosBezo’s other passion is space travel. In fact, in an interview, he had when he was eighteen, he “said he wanted to build space hotels, amusement parks and colonies for 2 million or 3 million people who would be in orbit. According to him, ‘The whole idea is to preserve the earth’. And he has followed up with his dream with his aerospace company, Blue Origin. Right now, the space flight startup company is developing a reusable rocket that Bezos says will carry passengers. Even at this, Bezos has more ambitious plans for Blue Origin:

“We want to go everywhere, [requiring significantly lower launch costs.] Our number-one opponent is gravity. … The vision for Blue is pretty simple. We want to see millions of people living and working in space. That’s going to take a long time. I think it’s a worthwhile goal.”

Bezos exhibited an extension of his greatness when he purchased The Washington Post in 2013 for $250 million. Not just that, though, Bezos has contributed to the success of a whole lot of other companies. Companies like Airbnb, Linden Lab, Aviary, Google, Uber, Twitter etc. have benefitted from his funding. All these and much more are part of the Bezos Expedition.

And you would want to know that he featured in one of the Star Wars seasons.

MACKENZIE BEZOS

MacKenzieNot many will know Jeff Bezos’ wife. But the few who do knows that she is physically, mentally and financially on point. First off, she is a writer of great repute. Her first novel, The Testing of Luther Albright, won the 2006 American Book Award. She recently published another novel, Traps, in 2013.

bezosShe worked for Jeff Bezos in 1992 at his hedge fund job. During this time, she fell for his warm laughter and asked him out to a meal. After six months, they got married. And then, they moved to Seattle from New York together. So Mackenzie Bezos has been with Jeff right from his beginning as the founder of Amazon.

Right now, MacKenzie Bezos is the director of Bystander Revolution, an anti-bullying revolution which she founded in 2014.

So pretty much, this couple is making some big impact on humanity itself.

VTpass, as an online payment platform, is looking in the direction of greatness. And surely, we are heading there with our forward move to make the world a more convenient place. Now, you can easily buy your airtime, data, tv subscriptions and electricity bills by logging on to www.vtpass.com.

Here is a Jeff Bezos quote that will get you started on a successful future.

HOW OUR MOBILE PHONE REALLY WORKS

Have you ever known anyone to ponder on how we manage to seamlessly communicate with others on our mobile phone? And other people do not seem to understand the wireless connection and a proper two-way conversation. Well, this might be a weird thing to ask or ponder on. But it is an abiding question at the back of the mind of many. Also, we do not have to necessarily assume this to be merely a technological wonder. We can actually get to know how this connection come about.

mobile phoneFor one, VTpass, as an online payment platform, leverages on this seamless connection to provide the best of service for her customers. So that just by logging on to www.vtpass.com, you can get your daily services. You are looking to buy airtime and data, pay electricity bills and cable tv subscriptions? Then www.vtpass.com will work just fine for you. So, coming to our phone and the endless calls we seem to always make and receive. Not just that, we can even get information on the Internet, play game, watch TV and integrate other devices into our phones. How does it all really work?

Now, the mobile phone is a radio, a sort-of higher grade radio. But a radio still.radio,phonee

In fact, when the cell phones were not available, people with means could install radio telephones in their cars. But then, there was one central antenna tower per city, and perhaps 25 channels available on that tower. What this meant was that meant that the phone in your car needed a powerful transmitter — big enough to transmit through a long distance. It also meant there just were not enough channels to go round for everybody. Only a few people could use the radio-telephone.

The innovation of the cellular system laid in the division of cities into small cells. This meant extensive frequency reuse across a city so that millions of people can use cell phones simultaneously.

phone,vtpassA walkie-talkie kind of works in the same way. So, understanding the walkie-talkie will lead to an understanding of the cell phone. But of course, the cell phone works in a more complex way.

Now, the walkie-talkie is a half-duplex device. That is, two people communicating on a walkie-talkie use the same frequency, so only one person can talk at a time. On the other hand, a cell phone is a full-duplex device. That means that you use one frequency for talking and a second, separate frequency for listening. Both people on the call can talk at once.

And then, a walkie-talkie typically has one channel. A typical cell phone can communicate on 1,664 channels or more. Also, while walkie-talkie can transmit about 1 mile (1.6 kilometres) using a 0.25-watt transmitter.Cell phones operate within cells, not transmitters, and they can switch cells as they move around. Cells give mobile phones incredible range. Someone using a cell phone can drive hundreds of miles and maintain a conversation the entire time because of the cellular approach.

phone,vtpassHence, the mobile or cell phones basically use cells to operate. The carrier chops up the city into cells. Cells are normally thought of as hexagons on a big hexagonal grid, like this. Basically, these are what we call masts

What further aids the cell connection is the use of low power transmitters. This allows for the same frequencies to be reused in nonadjacent cells. Each cell has about 56 voice channels available. In other words, in any cell, 56 people can be talking on their cell phone at one time. Analog cellular systems are considered first-generation mobile technology, or 1G. With digital transmission methods (2G), the number of available channels increases. And the increment has only continued with time.

Another thing you need to know is that all cell phones have special codes associated with them. These codes help identify the phone, the phone’s owner and the service provider. So these codes are responsible in some way for how calls are regulated by carriers.

phoneSo yes, there is a whole lot of story when it comes to how cell phones work. But you would have discovered from all indications that the cell phone we have in your hands or home is one wonderful device. And its usefulness cannot be overemphasized. Also, we cannot afford to take all the connection we have access to for granted. To keep connected, you are to regularly renew your airtime and data.

THE FUTURE OF TELEVISION IN THE 21ST CENTURY

The advent of television in the late 1920s indeed redefined the whole concept of entertainment. Its invention came about due to competitive efforts and crude experiments. But then, it has become the mass medium for entertainment, education, news, politics, gossip, and advertising. Its continued presence is due to its influence on public opinion. And it also has to do with the high level of entertainment it provides. But it is beginning to look like the popular pull TV used to have is beginning to wane. And this is largely due to the high rate of technological integration with the world of entertainment.

Really, the influx of social media platforms like Facebook, Whatsapp, Twitter, Instagram and the likes are things people now show more interest in. Also, the high image qualities of phones have made people more interested in making a show out of their lives. And yes, we cannot but include the internet video channels, of which YouTube is the most popular. Through these online video channels, you get to watch just about anything that catches your fancy. Another foremost factor is just how easy it is to reach these services and get the needed fun. For one, you can easily buy data or airtime just by logging on to www.vtpass.com.

All these easily prompt us to ponder on what the fate of television is in this 21st century that seems to have it all. Is it possible that the other popular means of entertainment and communication are going to flood the Television? Will TV ever become an extinct word with only a past glory to boast of?

Well, let’s consider the early days of television as documented by one to see just where the end might lie:

“Although television was first regarded by many as “radio with pictures,” public reaction to the arrival of TV was strikingly different from that afforded the advent of radio. Radio in its early days was perceived as a technological wonder rather than a medium of cultural significance. Television prompted a tendency to criticize and evaluate.

One aspect of early television that can never be recaptured is the combined sense of astonishment and glamour that greeted the medium during its infancy. At the midpoint of the 20th century, the public was properly agog about being able to see and hear actual events that were happening across town or hundreds of miles away. Relatively few people had set in their homes, but the popular fascination with TV was so pronounced that crowds would gather on the sidewalks in front of stores that displayed a working television set or two.”

This shows that people were more in for the fascination that accompanied the incoming of TV. This seems to insinuate that the immense attraction to the television has all the while has something to do with the societal glam. Hence, the societal shift to some other fields of attraction might have an effect on the future of TV.

But then, it is quite important to take into consideration the fact that Television programming has undergone quite a lot of evolution that makes it relevant to every present age, even the present age. First, towards the end of the 20th century, there was the move from the bland cable news entertainment to evening game shows. Then, when the game shows became slightly redundant, Reality TV was introduced and intensified in many parts of the world. Now, in the prime time of the century, seasonal or procedural dramas now thrive well. Also, modern soap-operas like Desperate Housewives, situation comedies and espionage/thriller dramas have also retained the relevance of the television. Wildlife and criminal documentaries can also be added to the list.

Somehow, it looks like Television as an entertainment phenomenon is here to stay.

And they do have a promising future even at this time when there are many attractions struggling for public spectacle. However, the argument is that “the most interesting new programs have been coming from the cable, not the networks. Not regulated by federal indecency rules or any censorship regulation, cable channels can and do present more “adult” content than their network counterparts.

Consequently, many have resorted to installing decoders to their televisions, which help them get just the right kind of entertainment. In fact, some televisions have inbuilt decoders. But because these cable TVs and decoders are owned and managed by private entrepreneurs, they have to be regularly subscribed into to be thoroughly enjoyed. But this is not much of a problem. You can pay your cable tv subscription and constantly renew it by logging on to www.vtpass.com.

VTpass is an online payment platform that allows you to pay for your everyday services in the most convenient way possible. In just three easy steps, you can pay your electricity bills, cable tv subscriptions, airtime and data subscriptions. Hence, you can enjoy all forms of entertainment possible. All you need do is log on to www.vtpass.com.

 

 

CAREER PATH: ALL YOU SHOULD KNOW

As humans with a solid sense of purpose, there are many projects we have to build to completion. For one, we have the mind to build a house and own it. We also want to build a relationship with whoever we love. We want to build close ties with the people around us. And then we want to grow our bank accounts and wallets. At VTpass, we want to build a networked customer base that pays for their everyday services through our online platform at www.vtpass.com. In essence, we all want to build a life. But then, at the heart of it all, there is one thing we should all want to build: a career.

A career might sound like the daily job routine you take up. Or the constant motions you have to go through every eight to five pm from Monday to Friday. This might look something like what a career is, but there is actually more to it.

A career is a long-term cause you decide to give and commit yourself to. In essence, a career is that one purpose you have decided to dedicate yourself to.

careerIt might be just about anything. Ranging from commerce to technology to music and charity, there is always one thing we eventually get to love as we get to know ourselves better. And it is on this one passion we get to build our lives for the rest of our lives. This is, in fact, our career.

Now, many people might have caught a whiff of what they see themselves doing for a long time. But not many people actually engage themselves in acts that move them closer to the overall realisation of their careers. While they go on to take on deviant jobs that earn them good salaries. They ignore just what they are best skilled at. They even go on to dabble in extra-curricular activities that go outside the framework of their career. By implication, they do not walk on their career path.As much we can go on to get jobs and earn salaries, we should be career driven.

A career driven person will take out time to ensure that every daily endeavour undertaken is done with retrospect to the bigger purpose.

So, if you are bent on being an agricultural entrepreneur, it won’t make much sense to work in a bank for such a long time. Rather, you will be intent on working in a food production company for a while or being around a farm. Also, you will be particular about attending conferences and seminars that border around being farming and all. Likewise, a musician in the making will be hanging around the studios. He will also be hooking up with music producers and learning to play several instruments. This might be, in spite of the fact that he/she is putting up with a part-time job as a teacher.

careerHence, a career path involves that line of actions you have to take to be just what you need to be. It is a year-round commitment to building and grooming a dream. A dream that you intend to see to the very end.

We, at VTpass, have found our lifelong purpose in serving you as well as many others who need to get their everyday services met.

Just by logging on to www.vtpass.com, you can pay all your daily bills such as electricity bills, DSTV, STARTIMES AND GOTV cable subscriptions. You can also get your airtime, data subscription and so much more through www.vtpass.com.

If you have found your career, but you don’t seem to be walking on just the right path to its actualization. Then there are three things you need to change:

  1.  Your mindset: You would like to give that dream a special first place in your heart. So, if your definition of a career is still lodged somewhere at the back of your mind. Then it is high time you changed that mindset.
  2. Your lifestyle: This is one thing you got to change. There is no way you are going to get that dream done if you do not change what you do. In essence, your sleeping and waking thought, your daily activities should tow just one direction. And yes, your nine to five is just as important as any other time in your life. So you might also need to change just what you do at that time.
  3. careerYour association: Your closest pals and your distant acquaintances, they are just as important in your career walk. So, you should surround yourself more with people who share the same dream as yours.

You need a billing partner that can help take care of everyday bills as you go on to make your dream work? Then try VTpass.
