How to make money online? – Business Insider

A new industry has emerged around using bitcoin to create online accounts for businesses.

In a move that could save businesses billions in costs, online banking firm CitiBank has introduced bitcoin payments as an option for customers who use the service.

The new bitcoin payment option comes as bitcoin prices have fallen sharply, making it a viable option for small businesses and consumers looking to buy goods online without using banks.

The move comes after the Reserve Bank of Australia introduced a range of measures to curb bitcoin use, including requiring bitcoin exchanges to obtain the approval of customers and limiting transactions in the virtual currency to $20,000 or less.

In addition to the new payment option, Citi said it would offer customers a free 30-day trial of bitcoin, which would include a range or products such as bitcoin wallet software.

“Citi has been committed to protecting Australian consumers, and this move reflects the company’s strong commitment to supporting our customers’ digital rights and freedoms,” a spokesperson for Citi told Business Insider.

The company said the trial will run from today until August.

“The trial will include bitcoin-based payment options for consumers, businesses and individuals, and the company will offer free bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash options for individuals who opt to receive the trial,” the spokesperson said.

Citi said the bitcoin payment process was designed to make it easier for small and medium sized businesses to offer digital services.

“This is a way for consumers to make small purchases that would otherwise be difficult or costly, and for businesses to make digital payments to individuals without the risk of losing their business,” the statement said.

Citi and the Reserve bank announced the move on Tuesday, saying it was aimed at protecting consumers from being hit with “unnecessary, unnecessary and unfair fees” and that the Reserve’s decision would “encourage all digital services providers to provide a more robust digital payment experience for all consumers”.

The Reserve Bank’s move follows a recent announcement by Australia’s financial regulator the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission that bitcoin transactions would not be subject to a $1,000 minimum transaction threshold.

The regulator also announced a new bitcoin-focused website and mobile app to help consumers access the digital currency.

“Citing the Reserve banks decision, we will be launching the new Citi bitcoin app in the coming days and will work closely with Citi to support digital currency payments,” a spokeswoman for Cites told Business Insights.

Bank of America to cut 5% of staff

BUFFALO, N.Y. (Reuters) – Bank of American Corp (BAC.

N) said on Friday it plans to cut five percent of its workforce in the U.S. and Europe, amid falling commodity prices and a widening global financial crisis.

The decision will reduce BAC’s global total workforce to nearly 10,000, or about 20 percent of the bank’s global workforce.

The bank has been cutting jobs as investors have priced out risky assets like the euro and U.K. Sterling, and as regulators tighten their controls on money laundering and terrorism financing.

The company will reduce its global total to about 5,000 employees, or less than 10 percent of total BAC revenues, the bank said in a statement.

The cut in its U.U.S., European and Asia-Pacific operations, it said, will be made effective on December 31.BAC has lost about $1.4 billion in the past six months, the most recent quarterly filing, as a glut of mortgage and other assets has pushed mortgage lenders to cut rates and companies to raise debt.

Investors are also weighing a possible run on BAC as more banks face pressure to cut costs, which have risen as the price of commodities have tumbled.

Bac has been a global pioneer in consumer credit products and has long been a beneficiary of a worldwide boom in mortgages, which are increasingly available to consumers.

It has been expanding credit lines to help people save for retirement and buy homes.

Banks are also increasingly using a range of new products, including peer-to-peer lending, to expand their lending to people without traditional bank accounts.

The bank said it will expand these products in a wide variety of markets, including in the United States and Europe.

Bancorp is the fourth-largest U.s. bank by assets, and the largest in the world, behind Morgan Stanley (MS.

N), Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS.

N)(GS.

O) and JP Morgan Chase & Co (JPM.

N).

Bancor’s board of directors will meet on Friday to approve the cuts.

It was not immediately clear how many of the affected positions would be eliminated.

Baccias chief financial officer, Robert Cimone, said in an email that Bancorp’s “current and anticipated expenses” for 2017 would be “substantially offset by our expected net loss in 2018.”(Reporting by Eric Walsh in New York; Editing by Andrew Hay)
