Why should I consider to buy Skyworth Brand?

It is another good question, yes, there’s a wide selection of consumer electronics brand out there and Skyworth is just one of them. In my own opinion, its a price wise and perhaps look for the aftersale service, since, all of those brands out there is uses the same exact component then as a buyer, choose the inexpensive yet the quality and aftersale service is retain.

And furthermore, the most important thing before buying goods like sound bar Bluetooth speakers, is look for the warranty, parts availablity and the number of service centers that can able to cater your product in case it became deffective. Because, it is just an electronic device wherein you do not know when to crash.

Years or Months of Skyworth TB600 warranty?

Another important factor to look at before considering buying an electronic consumer goods is the range of offered warranty. For the Skyworth TB600 Bluetooth speaker, Skyworth Philippines offering 6 months limited warranty to all of it’s inexpensive speakers. And that 6 months warranty for me is fair enough but other brand do offer atleast one year warranty.

What is the coverage of the warranty?

Again as per Skyworth Philippines warranty policy written on the waranty certicate, it only covering the factory defect or issue. Beyond that such as natural disaster, user negligience and other natural phenomenom is not get covered with the six months warranty.

Where do I call in case Skyworth TB600 malfunction?

In case the TB600 Speaker will get deffective after buying, you may call Skyworth hotline at number (02)555-1555. At the moment of writing, Skyworth Philippines doesn’t have a toll free hotline. Somehow soon they offer such service too.

Replacement policy for Skyworth TB600?

As DTI standard based on R.A. 7394 also known as the Consumer Act of the Philippines, the buyer has the right to replace the unit within 7 days period. However, on the Skyworth Philippines side they do have a 30 days replacement policy. Therefore, you can get a replacement within that 30 days period.  

How do I avail the Skyworth 30 days replacement policy?

Simply, everyone who buy a deffective product within 30 days period from the date of purchase will enjoy that privilage. But wait, according to it’s warranty policy, Skyworth Philippines technical team will need to check the product first and they will decide if it is for replacement or not. Therefore, not everyone enjoy the 30 days replacement privelage especially those who damged there product maliciously.

Available Service for Skyworth TB600?

Since it is an electronic devices who uses electricity to function, the time it crash is unpredictable. If the power surge up or down, the Skyworth Bluetooth speaker might crash down. So it turns out, that the availability of Service Center in your area is very and really important.

As confirm over the phone by the Skyworth Philippines, they told me that they have a total of more than 200 available service centers nationwide (Philippines). Therefore, it probably cater all your aftersales service needs. And in addition to that, they also catering home service.

Why I choose brand who offer a home service?

Simply, it save me lot and lot of time plus energy to move my deffective product from my place to another place. Therefore, ask the sales representative if there brand is catering home service. If not I am not saying to avoid it. It’s your discreetion…

How to know if the brand service center is excellent?

In my own opinion and experience as a consumer, if you really want to know an excellent aftersale service, try to call there hotline. If you get answer of your query on your first try, then it is excellent. But if not, then try again until third attempt. Beyond three attempts, expect a very bad and really worse aftersale service.

And beware also with those brand with an auto answering phone calls and let it hold you a couple of hours waiting. I experience that so many times reaching there service. Expect a really bad aftersale then, usually two to three months turn around time.

What is the usual turn around time of service for speakers?

Usually, turn around time for an aftersale should be 2 to 3 days only, but sometimes 7 days is still forgiving. Beyond 7 days, it a worse nightmare for consumer who pay the product but didn’t enjoy it.

Common TV Technical Terminologies

In this section we will try to find out and try to define some sales person technical words.

Pixel:
The smallest element or the basic unit that builds up an image in the screen. It is derived from the two words “Picture” and “Element”. It can sometimes refer as “dots” or “pel”. It is the smallest controllable element of a picture represented on the screen. Therefore, the more the pixel the clearer the picture is.

Resolution:
Refers to the total number of pixels in an image. It is expressed in two set of numbers which are the width and height. See figure below;

Hertz:
A unit of measurement (Hz) to describe frequency. One Hertz equals one cycle per second. In video, Hertz is used to describe a frame rate in frames per second.

Frequency:
Refers to the speed of transition of one frame to another. Its unit of measurement is express in Hertz (Hz). This is also known as the frame rate.

Response Time
-(unit: millisecond or ms) refers to the time that a generic system or functional unit takes to react to a given input.
E.g. Switching from one local channel to another.

Viewing Angle:
Refers to the maximum angle at which a display can be viewed with acceptable visual performance. The higher the viewing angle means the clarity can be viewed even watching on the side of the TV. It can be measured horizontally or vertically.

An illustration of TV wide viewing angle and narrow viewing angle.

Viewing Distance:
The suggested distance of a viewer from the TV to appreciate the clarity of the graphics being played in the screen. Viewing at a nearer distance might result to noticing the pixels.

Suggested viewing distance to appreciate TV clarity.

Aspect Ratio:
Aspect Ratio of a Display is the proportional relationship between the width of a display and its height. The aspect ratio is expressed as two numbers separated by a colon (x:y). Current common aspect ratios for displays are 5:4, 4:3, 16:10 and 16:9.

Common aspect ratios for TV Displays

Types of TV According to Display Technology

CRT TV:
A term which stands for Cathode Ray Tube. A type of TV that uses a vacuum tube and a fluorescent lamp to produce images. This is already an obsolete or outdated type of TV.

CRT TV

PDP TV:
A term which stands for Plasma Display Panel. It uses ionized gasses between two panels of glass to produce images. This is already an obsolete or outdated type of TV.

Actual Plasma TV

LCD TV:
A term which stands for Liquid Crystal Display. It filters the light coming from its backlight to produce an image. The filter is called the “shutter-filter” and this produces “sub-pixel”. This “sub-pixels” blend together to produce pixel. The shade of color is controlled by changing the relative intensity of the light passing through the sub-pixels. It was initially commercially released by the year 2007.

PROBIT DIGITAL CURRENCY EXCHANGE: New Korean Exchange

Few things have imploded in global adoption at the scale witnessed by the crypto market.

To accommodate the growth in adoption, and to handle the trade demands of the community, exchanges have launched all over the world. However, the vast portion of exchange developments have been concentrated from the US and China. It’s in the best interest of the community that a decentralized infrastructure is accommodated by a network of exchanges that is well-spread across the world.

A vast portion of exchanges have come out of US and China due to the high Crypto interest rooted in the countries. Interestingly, despite Korea having one of the highest national Crypto trade interest, there’s a limited number of major exchanges from the country; in fact, the highest spot currently held by a Korean exchange is on the 11th spot (by trade volume ranking).

A newly launched Korean exchange, ProBit, aims to diversify exchange presence across the globe, starting with Korea

The Strategy

ProBit Exchange intends to offer over 150 cryptocurrencies. What’s more, this exchange does not accept listing fees from projects. Any project worthy enough to pass ProBit Exchange’s requirements, may list.

This policy will actively protect users from scam projects and hit and runs. A cryptocurrency exchange having no listing fee is very rare – it ensures that the exchange has no conflict of interest in listing projects and aim to list only the very best for its users.

While bitcoin volume is certainly the crown of the market, token trading has seen substantial growth. Thus, exchanges that are friendlier to new cryptocurrencies have a good chance of capturing the one section of the market volume that is still increasing.

Kairotic Power
Sometimes, timing is everything. ProBit has a record-strong matching engine and well-established security measures so it doesn’t need to rely on timely launch benefits to have an edge. Nonetheless, the Korean government remains poised to soon relinquish pressures on the Crypto market. As regulation become ICO-friendly to domestic blockchain startups, an exchange that aims to aggressively extend its token menu will have a strategic benefit in Korea. Newly launched ICOs within the country would gladly welcome a domestic partner.

This isn’t the only kairotic benefit ProBit has.

Just earlier this year, one of the major Korean exchanges was hacked and suffered a major loss in user base. As a vast number of Korean traders have abandoned Bithumb, a new exchange could stand to be their new home.
Given that ProBit gives extra focus on security, it seems that it has placed the set of measures Korean traders will seek.

Global Presence
While ProBit stands to have a competitive advantage within the Korean market as it can create pathos appeal to traders of its own country, it intends to be a global institution.

The exchange is going to allow all holders of PROB tokens to vote on listings. Thus, anyone from anywhere can make an impact on the listings that take place on ProBit, thereby allowing people from all over the world to decide the direction ProBit takes. Also, holders of the exchange’s PROB tokens will allow market-makers to pay fees as low as 0.025%.

This is a record-low fee that will greatly appeal to traders from any country. On another note, given that the trading pairs are not linked to fiat, ProBit doesn’t limit itself to a specific country’s traders. Being friendly to a large amount of cryptocurrencies means the exchange welcomes listings of projects from across the world.

ProBit will first start off with a focus in South Korea and to the other major markets globally. There’s a need for more exchanges from countries other than China and the US as that’s in the best interest of a system that prides itself on decentralization. While the exchange makes a great effort to spread awareness of its developments, it has a strict policy of never paying for marketing with PROB tokens.

CoinJanitor (JAN)BENEFITS

There are 4 main groups of people who will benefit from the CoinJanitor project. People may belong to more than one of these groups simultaneously, which means they will enjoy the benefits on every group they might be in. The following are the groups of people who will benefit from the CoinJanitor project and how they will benefit:

Users of Failed Coins: They will benefit from the opportunity to get value back from coins that cannot be sold. They will also benefit from joining a community that will grow exponentially as CoinJanitor continues to amalgamate communities of other failed coins that are otherwise cut-off from the markets.

CoinJanitor Users: They will benefit from the creation of a new economy that wouldn’t exist otherwise. This economy is based on unlocking value trapped in failed coins and achieving a network effect by amalgamating the communities of these failed coins into a single one.

The Market: Cryptocurrency markets will benefit from 2 positive externalities that the CoinJanitor project will produce: the reduction of dilution in the markets through the decommissioning of blockchains that trap value, and the ability of CoinJanitor to become a vehicle through which the trapped value can be transferred elsewhere in the market.

Project Creators: They will benefit from creating an unprecedented project in the space, opening a debate that cryptocurrency enthusiasts should have about the best way to deal with failed coins, and the privilege of leading a newly created community with the development of more tools that will be useful to cryptocurrency enthusiasts and markets across the board.

 

CoinJanitor JAN Roadmap

 

CoinJanitor (JAN) FAQ!

1. How do you make money from the project?
CoinJanitor aim to unlock value trapped in failed or dead coins, add value through the amalgamation of deadcoin communities and make that value transferable into the markets. The network effect created through the amalgamation of dead coin communities is the cornerstone of our value proposition. As we integrate more dead or failed coin communities under the CoinJanitor umbrella, that network effect should grow, compounding the value of our token.

2. Which countries are not allowed to contribute?
US citizens and residents are not allowed to contribute.

3. Why there are no advisors?
The team has all the expertise needed to carry out its task and Marc Kenigsberg, one of the top ICO advisors in the world, is leading this effort. We have asked would-be advisors to help us spread the word about the project instead of hiring them to perform specific tasks. Many advisors have approached us, but we believe they can help us better by putting a good word in if they really believe in the project. Many have and we have been encouraged to stick to this approach.

4. When you will be listed on the exchange?
As soon as the public sale is over we will list our token on the exchanges we have struck a deal with already.

5. How do I get JAN coins?
You can contribute directly during our public sale starting on May 1st . You can also participate in our innovative bounty program and get a reward for your role in helping our nascent community.

6. What can I do with JAN coins?
CoinJanitor tokens (JAN) are an ERC20 token that will allow you to transact and transfer value. They will also be the basis of a new economy based on the recycling of dead coins through the amalgamation of dead coin communities. Any activity within this economy will be denominated in JAN and the team is planning to add more functions to the token once it starts deploying it to buy out and decommission dead coins. We would like to keep our focus on that task and worry about the deployment of additional functions for the JAN token later this year. Our road map and our white paper suggest ways in which we can add functions to the token. We will disclose those once they are ready for deployment.

7. What currencies are accepted?
Contributions can be made in BTC, ETH, LTC, XMR, BTG and BCH. We will also take contributions in fiat (USD).

8. What is the company’s vision?
CoinJanitor will become one of the most significant sources of data, code and other IP assets in cryptocurrency markets. We will build innovative tools with these assets for the benefit of anyone interested in cryptocurrencies in general, and our community members in particular. Unlocking value trapped in dead coins, adding value through the integration and amalgamation of dead coin communities under the CoinJanitor umbrella to create a network effect, and allowing people to transfer that value openly into cryptocurrency markets will be the first step we take in that direction.

Conclusion:

One of the most important aspects when learning about CoinJanitor is their strategies when dealing with communities at the moment of making the necessary arrangements to proceed with the actual purchase of the project.

In short words, once the team at CoinJanitor evaluated a project and concluded there are valuable asset that could help the entire crypto community, they will approach the people behind the project, at this point there could be several cases depending if there are divisions in the project’s community or if on the contrary, the people are united with common interests.

In the cases where there are divisions involving the community of the dead crypto project and/or its owners, then CoinJanitor will most likely avoid getting involved because dealing with complicated situations can consume too much time and energy. CoinJanitor is looking to create relationships with people that understand the fact that what CoinJanitor is doing brings benefits to everyone, so if things get complicated with a particular project, CoinJanitor will simply contact a different project and start to work with them in making the arrangements to acquire that project.

In my personal opinion, I think the most common case will be to find projects with a little dose of conflict between its member caused by the project’s failure, but they will most likely agree with the terms CoinJanitor will be proposing to at least recover some value from the work they did.

In the infographic I am sharing below, I explained the 3 situations that CoinJanitor might face when dealing with communities from dead crypto projects.

Reasons why Investing in Cryptocurrencies is a Must?

Reasons why Investing in Cryptocurrencies is a must?

In 1987, they predicted that the Soviet Union would collapse and a few years later, that’s exactly what happened.On 26th of December 1991, Soviet Union collapse into 15 independent republics, a result of the declaration number 142-Н of the Supreme Soviet of the Soviet Union.

In 1989, they predicted that the Japanese stock long running bull market in Tokyo may be nearing an end. Months later, the Japanese asset price bubble’s collapse in late 1991 and early 1992. And it has never recovered!

In 2000, they predicted the dot com bubble will explode and at the same year, NASDAQ began a two year, 77% decline.

In early 2006, they predicted the crash of the housing bubble along with lender Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. And a few months later the it’s happened, where according to reports the housing prices peaked in early 2006, started to decline in 2006 and 2007, and reached new lows in 2012. On December 30, 2008, the Case–Shiller home price index reported its largest price drop in its history.

And now they predicting the next great world shift will be happened in America. And they believe that it already passed the point of no return. Which means that a crisis is now inevitable and unstoppable.

It will start in the banks, ATM machine or credit card and find that it isn’t working or gone offline, which I experience many times now. And if you made a call to your bank, you will get a prerecorded message from some agency you don’t recognize.

What people don’t see in the 1950’s, the United States began switching over to a new kind of economic system. Which ends the gold standard in 1970’s. The new system made America’s economy what it is. If you’ve ever wondered how America managed to keep going despite every sign pointing to coming collapse.

The trouble is that over three decades ago, there is a fatal flaw in the current system. And as this system keeps growing, so too, does the flaw. When the fiat currency collapse a systemic shock will disrupt live in ways you never imagine possible.

You will suddenly be locked out of your own bank account. Unable to withdraw cash or deposit a check. The stock market will swing wildly out of control. You won’t even be able to access your social security fund.

Like a virus it will affect and spread to the food supply chain, causing massive shortages. The same thing will happen to other industrial networks. And one by one, every service you’ve come to depend on from bank, grocery store, to government agency will shutdown.

You won’t be able to get cash, and without cash you won’t be able to buy food or all other basic needs. And what happen to you then?

CRYPTYK – A NEXT GENERATION CLOUD SECURITY SOLUTION

decentralized file storage platform with blockchain auditing

WHAT IS CRYPTYK?

Cryptyk is basically a decentralized file storage platform with blockchain auditing. It is simply a platform aiming to build decentralized cloud storage using blockchain. They aim to revolutionize the cloud computing sector and doing this with blockchain security. They are the first complete decentralized enterprise for cyber security and cloud storage.

WHY CRYPTYK

Right now, the cloud computing sector suffers some inefficiencies due to some factors like :

  • High cost due to monopoly (expensive).
  • Security.
  • Breach of data privacy due to centralization.
  • Vulnerability to viral threats/attacks.

The main problem of cloud security which CRYPTYK aims to solve is security and it will do that via blockchain technology; The perfect decentralisation option.

THE CRYPTYK PLATFORM

Cryptyk will be a unique hybrid platform. It will combine two amazing decentralized systems :

VAULT
This is a very secure decentralized multicloud file storage platform. The security is due to its user based encryption which reduces security threats. It is also a sharing platform as well.

SENTRY
Sentry ,on the other hand, is a decentralized blockchain auditing platform for auditing user access and for tracking file sharing. It runs these by leveraging a permanent immutable ledger. This feature guarantees maximum security since data can not be tampered with or altered in anyway.

Both are are decentralized platforms for cloud services.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Understanding the concept and working of combining these two amazing decentralized solutions is really interesting.

Lets take VAULT FIRST…

First, files are uploaded and encrypted. Upon encryption, the files are spliced into N separate shards (file is divided into smaller file portions, these small portions are termed shards). These shards then undergo encryption( a second one) and are stored across independent cloud storage providers. These shards have encryption keys which are normal security protocol. All N+1 encryption keys for every single individual file are stored on users personal devices and an offline backup server as well(Just in case users lose their device).

Now let’s consider this…
Let’s say, the security if the system wants to be exploited by a hacker(which occurs quite often). The hacker would have to actually break the security if the N cloud providers where the files are already across and break the N+1 encryption keys as well. That’s very impossible. Because, just decrypting multiple files would take years for a quantum computer to do. Then think about hacking multiple users. It’s quite useless and impossible. On understanding this, we see how interesting the vault system is and an efficient security solution as well.

How about an instance of malware or a virus upload to the system??
Funny enough,this won’t affect the system in anyway. This is because the corrupted file would not execute due to the vault network not being an independent one. The network exists in N different pieces and places, hence the virus cannot execute.

SENTRY ON THE OTHER HAND…
Has audited record of file key sharing/permissions/maps/history. ID verification, group permissions and fingerprint security are among the tools to ensure added security.
The integration of Sentry into Cryptyk which enables verification, auditing and tracking if user access and file sharing would make it hard for users data to be breached.

THE CRYPTYK ECOSYSTEM

Cryptyk will be a unique hybrid platform

The community of like-minded individuals made up if customers, developers investors and users who will collectively create, augment and operate the CRYPTYK platform.

THE CRYPTYK TOKEN
CRYPTYK will have a digital token called CRYPTYK TOKEN which will be used for :

1. Enabling the purchase and use if CRYPTYK products.
2. Funding the development of the CRYPTYK platform by Cryptyk Inc.
3. Incentivizing developers and alliance partners via the CRYPTYK foundation.

The Cryptyk Token Ecosystem

Cryptyk Tokens power an entire cyber-security ecosystem and incentivize participation from a community of enterprise customers, small-medium business customers, individual consumers, software development partners, crypto-currency miners and investors.

The tokens can be purchased with fiat currency or bitcoin and ethereum. They will be the fuel of the system and as the platform grows, it’s demand will grow which will in turn drive their value up. The total supply is fixed at 750 million tokens.

HOW TO PURCHASE

The tokens are purchased by a token sale. Token sales are crowdfundings basically, but mainly for cryptocurrencies. They are used as a means of generating capital for companies. To participate in the token sale. Go to https://www.cryptyk.io

There are two types : Token pre-sale round and public token sale round.
In the first round, you will need to go through KYC verification and the minimum investment is $1500. Meanwhile, in the public sale round, the minimum investment is $500 and the round is open to all non-accredited investors as well from outside USA and Canada.

CRYPTYK is developed by Cryptyk Inc. They are based in San Francisco, USA. In close proximity to the top guns in the blockchain sphere
