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. Not only that, you can also make payment for your everyday services in three easy steps through your VTpass wallet. Hence, you can pay your electricity bills, Mtn, Airtel, Glo and 9mobile airtime and data subscriptions. You can as well as renew your Dstv, Gotv and Startimes subscriptions through www.vtpass.com.

The future is already here with www.vtpass.com and you can’t afford to be left behind.

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.

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. As an online payment platform, www,vtpass.com makes it possible for you to pay all your bills with speed and convenience.

weekendLooking for the place where all the fun in the world is gathered? Then, social media is just the right place to look into.

If you are looking for fun and inspiration, checking up on the happening things on these platforms will help a lot. You can as well follow the pages and accounts of people who have a niche for motivating talks and funny antics. Chatting up with old alumni of your school or joining groups that share the same interest with you is also helpful.

And you will find a lot of sense in the sarcastic words of the comedians.

3. REALITY SITCOMS

Following up on one of these reality shows online is quite a good way to loosen up and be encouraged. Depending on your interest, you can find a lot of reality shows that make you see that anything is possible.

4. BLOGGERS AND VLOGGERS

Quite related to this, there are bloggers and vloggers who give potent bits of advice on just about anything. Subscribing to one or two of them this weekend will definitely enliven it and the week ahead.weekend

A NOVEMBER TO REMEMBER WITH VTPASS

It’s a wonderful day today. And yes, it’s the first day of the month, November. We, at VTpass say a happy new month to every Nigerian. November is really one great month to look forward to. For one, it is the very month that heralds December. And December, of course, signals the end of the year 2017. So technically, November is that last month where we get to make trailing memories and cross milestones. For businesses, it is just the right time of the year to start rounding off goals. And mapping out the last great feat to achieve.

We, at VTpass, earmark November as one great month to leave a lasting imprint on the hearts of our customers. In fact, this is the time of the year where we get to serve you most. You are still wondering what we do? Well, we are not tired of reiterating our effective service to you.

VTpass is that one online payment platform where you get to pay for all your everyday services. You can pay for your electricity bills, cable TV subscriptions, phone airtime and data subscriptions. And these things you can do just by logging on to www.vtpass.com.

So, at VTpass, we want to walk alongside you as you work harder this November to meet up with those goals. Why worry about settling bills when you have other things to worry about? Let us pay the bills while you get on to making your business reach those set goals. Just log on to www.vtpass.com today to start paying in three easy steps.

That said, you might want to know the very meaning and significance of November. Well, here is it all spelt out for you:

November derives from the Latin root novem- meaning “nine,” because in the Roman calendar there were only ten months in the year, and November was indeed the ninth month.

For many English speakers, November marks the point in the year when the cold begins to set in. And for those in the tropical region, the November Harmattan is something no one really looks forward to. This association is no doubt why November’s adjectival form, Novemberish, means “dreary,” and why the month’s original name in Old English was Blōtmōnað, literally “blood-month.”. It was the time when the early Saxons prepared for winter by sacrificing animals, which they then butchered and stored for food. November is also called Blōtmōnað in America, particularly during the weeks leading up to their turkey-filled Thanksgiving dinner.

But November need not be Novemberish and Harmattanish for us here. There is Black Friday to look forward to.

November symbols

  • November’s birthstones are the topaz (particularly, yellow) which symbolizes friendship and the citrine.
  • Its birth flower is the chrysanthemum

Make this November one to remember by integrating VTpass into your lifestyle. Just visit www.vtpass.com to do this. And begin to pay your MTN, AIRTEL, 9MOBILE and GLO airtime and data subscription with ease. Just as you can pay your electricity bills and DSTV, GOTV and STARTIMES subscription with perfect convenience.

Happy New Month!

WORLD SAVINGS DAY- How to keep up with your savings goal

One exciting part of childhood, you would remember, was having a piggy bank to throw in. It was a common trend amongst children who got stipends from their relatives. And it was quite a fun thing, saving for some rainy day which of course was nothing much. But then, growing up brings with it a lot of responsibilities. world saving dayAnd we inadvertently find ourselves spending more than we keep. Well, every October 31st is world savings day. And we should take out today to reflect on just how and why we should up our saving flair.

So yes, we all do not hope for a sore time in our lives. But then, things happen. And what we have stowed away is what keeps us on our toes for those times we need that extra back up and support. But then, there are more reasons why we need to save: 

  • To start up a business
  • For some short-term purpose like catering for a ceremony
  • For long-term purposes like building a land or house

And yes, you can save to take care of daily expenses. Rather than spending randomly, money can be kept aside to cater for your everyday services like phone airtime and data subscriptions.

a. Cut down on unnecessary expenses

savingThis is some tip that most people are familiar with. But only a few people follow up on this. This is because not too many people do well with change. It is quite hard to cut down on the few luxuries we allow ourselves like the extra packs of chocolate or home appliances we could just as well avoid. And we mostly get the feeling that these little expenses do nothing to our money banks. Now, this is the mindset we need to deal with.

2. Every little kobo counts

Now, there is the need to embrace the mindset that every little penny counts. Hence, we should be conscientious of how we spend and why we spend. And what better way to keep in this mindset than by making a list of what you need before you get on to buy them.

3. Learn to be forgetful

EIGHT REASONS WHY YOUR WEBSITE IS SLOW

A website is a collection of similar web pages made up of contents which are multimedia in nature. Normally, a website is also identified with a common domain name. And it is usually accessible on the Internet as well as the LAN. A website is meant to perform any such function ranging from personal to a public function. One such publicly functional website is www.vtpass.com.

This website emanates from the stable of VTpass. And it has been particularly designed to help customers make bills payment with ease and speed. Just by logging in to www.vtpass.com, you can pay for your phone airtime, electricity bills, data subscriptions and cable tv subscriptions. And it happens in just three easy clicks- Log on, Select, Pay.

And yes, if you are looking to take whatever you do in a global sphere. Then one good way to do this is by building a website. The advantages of owning a website are much more than can be imagined. It gives a lot of exposure to your business or whatever you are promoting as well as opens up a platform through which your customers can be effectively and conveniently served.

But what happens when your supposed website is so slow that rather than blow out your business, it keeps people away from visiting your website.

websiteYou would want to do something about this. I mean, it can do a lot of harm to your business. But first, you would need to know just why the website is slow.

 

Here are ten reasons why your designed website can be having hiccups:

  1. TOO MANY IMAGES

Images are the spice of any website. They supply the aesthetical appeal to the techno feel of websites. But just like too many hands spoil the cooking, too many images also makes a website move from simply wow to very quirky and queasy. But not just that, it makes a website really slow. This is quite simple to understand. When someone’s mind is clogged with too many irrelevant memories, the very important ones might be skipped and issues might arise. So if you do not want to give your website a lot to think about, which slows down its performance, then avoid putting too many images.

  1. WHEN THE SERVER PERFORMANCE IS BAD

Sometimes, the host provider can be faulty or there might be an issue with the server. There is quite nothing you can do about this except wait for the server to be restored to full performance. But if this issue occurs more time than you can bear, then you had better change your host provider. There are lots of options when it comes to web hosting services. For instance, we have Bluehost, Ipage, Sitebuilder and a whole lot more.

  1. websiteWHEN THE CSS (STYLING) IS TOO MUCH

You want your website to look chic and mind-blowing, so you tell your web designer to give it all it takes. In giving it all it takes, a lot of Cascading Stylesheet (CSS) efforts must have gone into use. Hence, you have all the floating fonts, the colourful styles and dynamic layouts. But the price you pay to get all these incorporated might be more than you are willing to take on. For a lot of this styling affects the website and makes it terribly slow. To rectify this, you might want your web designer to take a closer look at the codes and take down the things overwhelming the site.

  1. TOO MANY VIDEOS

Similar to the use of excessive images, too much video uploads can also hamper the productivity of the website. This is even worse off as these videos weigh more than an image.

  1. TOO MANY REQUESTS

When the visitors on a website are required to make a lot of clicks, enters, log in before performing any operation, the website becomes slow and finds it burdening to respond quickly to all the requests.

website

  1. TOO MANY PLUGINS ON YOUR WEBSITE

This is especially for those operating a CMS like WordPress, Drupal and Jumla. Adding many functions and installing a lot of plug-ins can cause a website to take time to come up. Slightly related to this is the use of outdated CMS. Although this is not a regular problem, it is still something to take note of and check up on if your website is slow.

  1. BAD QUERY

Imagine sitting in the living room and then needing a spoon to scoop up the ice-cream you just ordered. Because you are too tired or busy watching a soap to move your limbs, you tell your younger brother to go fetch you a spoon. Somehow, your brother ends up carting up to you the whole cutlery in the house. Of course, you are surprised, but your brother isn’t because he is quite sure that bringing the entire cutlery in the house was exactly what you asked him to do. He might be right or wrong, but whatever the case, what you got yourself was a bad query.

This can also occur with a website. Once a website gets to the point that the mySQL sends out bad queries, then that website is bound to be slow or even fail. You might want to consult with the tech experts to address.
