How To Make a Small Room Look Bigger With Stone Tile Flooring

As the Australian population grows, homeowners have no option but to build smaller rooms. That's particularly so in towns and cities where limited space is fast becoming the order of the day. But even with that, no one wants to stay in a room that feels cramped.

If your room is feeling too small, the first step is to remove the items you don't need. That's simple, right?

Unfortunately, you can't go that direction if everything in the room is essential. Therefore, you must look for alternative ways to make your room look bigger. One way is to choose a flooring option that will make the room look and feel spacious. Tiles are a perfect option to achieve this.

Below are some of the ways through which you can use tile flooring to make your room look more spacious.

Use Large Size Tiles

The good thing about tiles is that they come in a variety of sizes. Travertine, limestone, and marble floor tiles are available in different sizes. Choose a size that will give you the spacious feel you need. Professional designers agree that large tiles make your room appear larger. Further, experts say that when you use large tiles and grouts of the same colour as the tiles, you get a sense of bigger space.

Choosing The Right Colour Combination

Almost every designer will tell you that brighter colours make a room look more spacious. While many people have tried this with great success, research reveals that this only works because of the colour combination used in the entire room. Therefore, when choosing colours for your tile flooring, pick the colours that work best for you, experimenting to get the best results. You can buy travertine, marble, or limestone tiles Newcastle in a colour choice that works best for room users without limiting them to bright colours. The fact that they're available in many colours means you can always select a colour that blends in well with your general room design.

Combine Different Shapes

Achieving a visual effect that makes your room feel spacious takes some effort. One of the ways to do this is by using different shapes. You can go for square and rectangular combinations, but maintain the same texture and colour across the floor. Getting the right mix requires a high level of skill for everything to remain organised. Consult a flooring expert if you're not sure about what to do with different shapes.

Employ Consistency

For the best result, avoid using different flooring styles in different rooms. Using a uniform style creates a seamless blend, making your room appear more spacious.

Use The Diagonal Trick

Although it might not sound realistic, installing your tiles in a diagonal style will make your room look bigger. This rule works not only for tiles but also for other flooring options. Diagonally installing the tiles requires that you use a coloring option that projects the diagonal effect.

By following the above approaches, you'll be surprised by how much you can make your small room look bigger. You must, however, ensure that you only keep what you need. Also, as mentioned above, every other thing in the room, including wall hangings, shouldn't be things that make your room look cramped.

7 Tips for Starting Your Own Business Overseas

7 Tips for Starting Your Own Business Overseas

Most entrepreneurs began like this…

They found themselves looking at other successful entrepreneurs living the dream life in an exotic country, while staring out the window of their apartment building in a crowded city.

Slowly but surely gathering courage and inspiration to chase the same dream..

Researching ways to start a business overseas...

...and then they suddenly woke up with a feeling of “I’m doing it!”. And that’s all she wrote. Now you’ll probably see them floating at the top of their industry.

However, building a successful business abroad isn’t simply a stroke of luck. Your favorite entrepreneurs didn’t centralize their business idea around just anything that seemed profitable at the time.

They knew better and didn’t rely on luck but rather their dedication, passion, love, motivation, and willingness to face the risks and overcome them.

Did you already figure out how you’re going to launch your business in a foreign country?

Don’t worry if you haven’t!

I’ve made a list of 7 essential things in order to help you successfully launch and develop your own business overseas!

1) Ask yourself “Why”

Starting your own business might be an intimidating uphill ladder to climb but many have gone and done it before you. Being constantly rejected after job interviews will take its toll and drain your self-belief.

As mentioned in the intro, starting a successful business doesn’t come easy, heck starting a business at all isn’t easy. That means you must be heavily motivated and believe for 200% in yourself and in your business in order to succeed. When you’re starting a business as a last resort, you’re already down 2 points.

Dig deep - and I mean really deep. Find the true answer to why you want to start a business. Once you can answer that, it’s ready to go to the next step.

2) Let’s Nail It Down

You might already own a business in your home country but want to re-brand and introduce it overseas in a new market. For the sake of this list, I’m assuming you don’t have a business yet. First off, it would be pointless to reinvent the wheel.

Here’s the catch:

Try to find an idea that is already available on the market and simply improve it! For example, I developed an idea and started my own business in my last year at the University. At the time, it was mandatory to do a 6 months internship abroad. I decided to do my internship in Asia, Indonesia to be specific. In Indonesia, it’s quite hard to find a company that’s willing to provide an internship due to all the paperwork etc. That’s why there are various agencies offering a service that will land you an internship.

However, I was very dissatisfied with how things were handled. It was poorly put together from start to finish and I had to take care of so many things myself. I thought I can do this but way better.

Based on that experience, I decided to start my own internship agency, offering internships in Indonesia for a fixed fee and my agency would take care of paperwork, housing, airport pickup, visa documents, and a few extras.

Look around you, think about this example and maybe you’ll get an awesome idea to improve an already existing product or service.

3) Business Plan

Some business plans are never ending documents of countless of pages with expectations, calculations, assumptions, market trends, fluctuations, what’ll happen in 2, 3, or 5 years, and so on.

It’s simply too much.

Too much information, It will take way too much time and effort, and for what? It’s nearly impossible to predict what your budget or revenue will be estimated at in 3 or 5 years. I read the “$100 Startup by Chris Guillebeau” and I highly recommend it! Chris shows a great example of a “one-page business plan” that covers:

❏    What are you selling
❏    What is the value of your product or service
❏    Who is going to buy it
❏    How are you going to find customers
❏    How much will you charge
❏    What are you going to do to make it happen

That’s all. Try to answer all these questions. It’s not as easy as you might think.

4) Target Market

Let’s quickly flashback to one point in the previous section: your potential customers.

When thinking about your potential target market, try to really nail it down as specific as you can. For example, when you sell waist trainers for women, don’t just target all women. Narrow it down by targeting women who are interested in a healthy lifestyle, gym, fitness, body shape, losing weight, etc.

You get my point.

Furthermore, you want to target a very specific target audience through social media campaigns also. The better you are able to narrow down your audience, the better the results are. It’s better to reach a small group who you know will be interested in your product or service instead of targeting a large group who might not be interested at all.

Finally, test and analyze your own campaigns. Develop an A/B testing strategy and to optimize your campaigns and utilize your full potential.

5) Pricing Strategy

You don’t want to charge too much, yet you don’t want to charge too little. Be realistic and recognize a fair price for your product or service that people are willing to pay for it. This also means, if you’re offering something of great value, don’t be afraid to price it accordingly!

Set realistic goals and calculate how much you need to sell quarterly/monthly or weekly in order to break-even or surpass your goal. Again, be realistic, this is important. Calculate any overhead costs such as delivery and/or any other incurred costs, it’s not rocket science.

Update and revise your financial overviews every month.

6) Startup Capital

When you’re just starting out, you want to keep the costs as low as possible. Be creative and be careful with spending money. Don’t rent expensive equipment or a fancy office at a premium location if that is not directly affecting the success rate of your business.

When I first started my business, I moved to Indonesia with just one suitcase and my laptop. My room was a very simple one-bedroom apartment with a shared kitchen. If I wasn’t driving around visiting companies, I was either working from home or a local cafe. Much, later on, I decided to rent an office.

Do you need extra starting capitals and you can’t reach it alone? Explore your options among crowdfunding websites. It’s a great solution to raise a certain investment and you can even invite friends, family or old business partners to support your business idea. One of the most famous crowdfunding platforms is Kickstarter.

7) It’s Time For Action!

Your business idea can be great, awesome, or incredible. Yet, without customers, your business won’t stay around for long.

It’s a follow-up on section 4 - your target audience. When you’ve been able to pinpoint who your potential customers are, it’s now time for action! The most important thing is to get started. It doesn’t really matter where or how - just do it. Don’t overthink it too much.

Create a list of companies or individual prospects who might be interested in your product or service and go after them. Call them, visit them, email them. Try to build a network and constantly expand. Schedule social media ad campaigns to raise brand awareness, engagement or following.

Are you still sitting in that chair, in your apartment building, in the crowded city?

I know I’m repeating myself here but it’s the most important thing to start your own business: It’s time to get out from that chair and take action. Nothing is going to happen if you don’t get started! Hopefully, this list will push you in the right direction.

Did you already experience how it is to start your own business? What were your biggest challenges?

How to Avoid Accruing Debt and Start Saving

Getting smart about saving money can be hard, especially when taxes are just around the corner. With all the conflicting services advertising online these days, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by all of the options.

Given the lack of formal financial education available to most individuals, one of the most difficult parts of establishing financial security can be sifting through the available information to find applicable, good advice. Some useful strategies, like taking out a short-term loan to prevent fiscal emergencies from ruining a credit score, can be overlooked during this process. Read on for a few simple tips on how to avoid debt, start saving, and design the best financial plan for any budget.

How to Avoid Accruing Debt and Start Saving

Stop Accruing Debt

The best way to evade increasing levels of debt is, quite simply, to pay bills and obligations as they come due. Of course, life has plenty of unforeseen complications that don’t always leave this possible: from the loss of a job, car troubles, family emergencies, or something more benign like a forgotten bill, there are any number of things that can prevent bills from getting paid on time. In situations like these, short-term loans can save time and money.

Taking out an easy payday loan to avoid missing a payment will save the heartache and headache associated with overdue payments, keep credit scores intact, and help maintain a positive relationship with lenders. These things all contribute to keeping the financial future bright, making it easier to find future loans and avoid increasing late fees. It can also increase the amount of the next payment which will go towards decreasing the true loan amount, rather than simply paying off interest.

Start Saving

Interest isn’t always a bad thing—when it comes to money in a private savings or checking account, keeping more money will increase the interest earned each month. These interest levels differ between account types, though; and keeping money in a savings account will earn more in the long run. Of course, this comes with the trade-off that money is less accessible. Most savings accounts will only permit a certain number of withdrawals within a month before charging accessory fees.

In situations like these, it’s beneficial for your financial scores and saving potential to have a savings account earning higher interest rates for each month. If money gets tight, loans can be beneficial for this as well. Taking out a small denomination loan is beneficial in the long run if it helps maintain a savings balance, or avoiding fees for moving money around before a set date. These loans can easily be paid back once a financial crisis has been averted, especially when a stack of bills with the same due date have been paid or the next paycheck has come in.


Keeping a yearly budget is one of the most important steps in maintaining positive finances. The initial process can be complicated—determining monthly expenses will take at least a month of active tracking, and systematically evaluating those expenses to differentiate between necessities and areas of potential reduction can be painful. In the long run though, the alleviation of stress achieved with financial stability and security is well worth the struggle.

Avoid Accruing Debt Now

Taxes are coming due soon, making this one of the most stressful fiscal seasons of the year. If taxes weren’t figured into the yearly budget, it will be easier to apply for a short term loan to cover the expense than deal with the headache of late payments or tax delinquency. Save yourself the monetary pain of poor credit and late fees, and look into payday loans to cover your short-term financial needs.

Check Out These 3 Simple Ways to Make Money with Live Streaming!

There are many Internet users who use live video streaming to promote their brand. With this medium, businesses are able to position their brand, create the buzz of their new products andget rapidfeedbackfrom their target audience. The growing trend of this new marketing tool has opened new avenues for businesses to promote their brand.

Besides, a video also brings out the creative soul in front of the cameraand provides a quick and easy way to share information, make a point, or even launch an entire marketing campaign. So if you want to truly want to leverage the potential of live streaming, you need to follow these tips:

1. Subscriptions/Pay Per View Options

If you want to make money from your personal videos, you can straight up charge people before they watch them. There are some platforms that allow video makers to have a paywall, the first one being DaCast. Of course, there are third-party options, like InPlayer, which can require a visitor to pay up in order to view your unique content.

This could work with either live streaming or on-demand videos that viewers could choose to view from.Subscriptions are also a good, maybe better option for some. Netflix and Amazon work this way, and so can any person who wants their videos to earn for them, provided the content is good enough. A subscription is basically a periodic charge that would allow viewers to watch as many videos as they can for a specific period of time.

2. Focus On Advertising

You can contact companies to place advertisements in your video descriptions, or for product placements within your videos themselves. Of course, you would have to make sure theta the quality of the video does not suffer as a result of this product promotion.

The ads could appear in set places right in your video itself, or appear as a link or images in your video descriptions. Or, if the product is relevant enough, you could even show yourself using it. For example, if you’re a makeup artist, makeup brands could very well contact you themselves and ask you to try out their products in order to promote them.

Advertisements could also interrupt the broadcast of our videos, but this is generally an irritating occurrence and can put some viewers off both the video and the advertisement. Ads should be tastefully placed. However, the upside of advertising is that it makes videos and other content free for the viewers.

3. Sponsorship

This method is similar to advertising. However, here the sponsoring company or party would actually fund your video before it gets made. The sponsor would thus be endorsed in the video itself and usually gets a shoutout at the end of every broadcast.

One usually needs a large audience before sponsorship or advertising are suitable options. However, since the content would be free as a result, it might be easier to get a larger audience than if the video viewing had to be paid for.

Wrapping Up…

Before one can start making money through live streaming, they do need to make sure their content is of high quality. The present numbers of the viewers also largely count when monetizing videos. The options above, as well as others, can only then help in earning video makers enough cash to keep them going.

So if you intend to make money using this new form of video marketing, you need to keep in mind all the aforementioned tips before you lift your camera and tripod stand. Wishing you all the luck!

Link Building: The White Hat Approach In a Nutshell

SEO – to the average person, even if they’ve tried to look into it and educate themselves– its downright confusing!

But if it is confusing, they’ve either read the wrong guide, or have misconstrued what they’ve read.

What I’ll try to do, is tell you how SEO really works, in simple terms. And it’s the way I’ve been working as a freelance SEO consultant for the past 2 years – and got bloody good results as well!

SEO has been given bad press by people who are doing things the wrong way (i.e. Black hat way). I’m not saying it doesn’t get results (it sometimes does) – but how long lasting and ethical is it?

SEO the way you may know it, is usually described with the view you need to “manipulate” Google or somehow “trick” it into pushing your rankings. As you may well know, aside from optimising your on-page SEO, the next stage is the food of the search engine’s – BACKLINKS.

And the way people usually achieve more links, is by building a load of blogs, posting a bunch of crappy articles on them and using the anchor text of their keyword to link to their site. In a fancy-dancy way, they may even interlink them, mix in some PBN links or whatever. The point being, they will make artificial sites themselves (or buy links) and then eventually try to divert the link-juice to their money site.
Now, as I said, it can work. But I’ve seen people hit the top spot in Google within weeks, but then once they take the foot off the gas (or get hit by a google update) they came crashing down to the bottom with a massive penalty.

Here’s the real number one strategy to do white hat SEO, and it’s pretty much the easiest one I’ve seen and is the only strategy I implement to this day.

1. Do your on-page SEO (no need to over-optimize, we want the site to look natural)

2. Create the best content of your subject you can think of. Either from your own expertise, or hire a writer. Example: if you have a carpet cleaning company, write a big article (500-1000 words+) about how someone would clean their own carpets effectively.
Very key – do not over-optimize or include a lot of keywords. That seems strange I know, but Google can tell when you’re trying to manipulate their algorithm, so your best bet is to just keep it natural and make the content interesting and useful.

3. Create a list of websites who would be interested in your content. In the carpet cleaning example, you would contact mom blogs, cleaning blogs, womens lifestyle sites,etc. Just any site where real users would probably find your content useful.

4. Find the contact emails of the owners/writers and write a simple email to them telling them about your content and if they’d like to link to you.

5. If they like it enough, they will link and if they don’t, they won’t. Simple as that.

And of course, these links are the best of all and hold much, much more weight than any artificially created link. Real websites, with real readers and who are really interested in your content. You’ll get both referral traffic from the link and since Google can tell that you have related websites linking to you (not just rubbish SEO-purposed sites) it will push your rankings up. Believe me, as a link building company, we’ve tried and tested everything!

Now, it’s a very simplified version of the strategy. But I find, the best things in life are usually the simplest as well..

Evolution of Video and TV - The Man behind the TV origin - John Logie Baird

John Logie Baird’s imaginative obsession of moving captured images turned into a pet project for his passion. During his research, John Logie Baird invented the system of mechanical television. Using Nipkow disc which was a perforated and a rotating disc, John Logie Baird was able to disaggregate between televised images and reassemble it for better viewing.

Evolution of Video and TV - The Man behind the TV origin - John Logie Baird

John Logie Baird’s invention was the first system that proved the mass distribution of televised images. With the radio broadcasting feature, the images could be transmitted wireless.

John Logie Baird made steady progress with airing recognizable faces through the mechanical system in 1925.

John Logie Baird’s Televisor project successfully transmitted moving images over telephone, and it was proved successful when first transatlantic and first shore to ship moving images experiment were successfully completed. This paved the way for colour television and the first video recording device.

John Logie Baird continuously kept experimenting with technology to increase his resolutions from 30 lines of definition to 240.

Once 1930s began, potential competition arose for the mechanical system proposed by John Logie Baird. When the decision to commercialize the system was about to taken, BBC’s intervention commenced the dispute for commercializing.

Baird resumed innovating and expanding his own ideas about technologies which led to high resolution color television and three dimensional televisions.

Kinetograph invented by Thomas Alva Edison was based on the concept of creating film for the kinetoscope. With the images being affixed to cylinder sequence for rotation of motion, this attempt seemed to be impractical.

The Kinetoscope prototype exhibited at a convention, was both a camera and a peep hole viewer. Thomas Alva Edison was disinterested projecting films, as he made good revenue from the sale of Kinetoscope machines. With the film exhibitions in Europe, Edison presented the first exhibition of projected motion pictures by using a projector called the Vitascope. Slowly, Thomas Alva Edison moved on from sale of kinetoscope machines to film making.

While Edison's laboratories were working on the Kinetograph and Kinetoscope, the French brothers, Auguste Lumière and Louis Lumière developed an apparatus that had three way usage such as camera, printer, and a projector. Known as the Cinématographe, this was similar to Edison's Kinetograph in its use of intermittent motion and perforated film.

Six Security Lessons for Small Businesses in 2017

Small businesses are a constant target of cybercriminals and anyone working on internet security can confirm this claim. Small business owners are usually let by the thought that there is nothing worth stealing from them, but hackers are able to take any piece of information and profit from it while seriously compromising your business’ online security. Thankfully, you don’t have to learn to protect yourself the hard way and precautionary measures are the best solution.

Knowing how to keep the security of your small business in check will make all the difference, especially because too many business owners still don’t pay enough attention to this aspect. We will talk about six ways you should learn to fend off any cyber problems in 2017.

Six Security Lessons for Small Businesses in 2017

Six Security Lessons for Small Businesses in 2017

Prevention Is the Key

First rule of internet security is that you shouldn’t wait for anything bad to happen to take action, but you should secure yourself beforehand. For this, you need to be informed first on what needs to be done, and for this cause it would be wise to consult IT experts. You should have a skilled IT employee who is able to take care of every cyber situation and that goes for anything from problems with connectivity to serious security threats. The level of protection you’ll need depends heavily on what sort of business you’re running and how connected it is to internet.

If you’re daily dealing with many online payments and regular confidential information manipulation, then you will need a security system that can match the security requirements. The first thing to do is get a strong antivirus program and you will have to pay for it, seeing that you’re aiming to protect all the devices in your office in one swoop. This expense won’t be too terrible, but it is necessary even though you don’t feel like spending any money on online security. Security software should include antivirus, anti-phishing tools, firewall, anti-spam and any other additional component that you may need.

Educate Your Employees on Time

The biggest reason for hackers getting what they want is the element of human error. If you don’t know what you’re up against, how can you know how to stop it?

It is paramount to keep both yourself and your employees educated on the subject of internet security, otherwise you can’t really hold them accountable for putting your business in danger. Security and privacy policy should be a part of the contract that every one of your employees signs and you should formulate those rules clearly and concisely. What’s more, you should have someone from your IT staff do short educational seminars on how to keep at bay the most frequent forms of malware, viruses and other forms of scamming. The most important thing is to trust your employees, because sometimes security problems can come from within the company, and you really don’t want to deal with intruders that can sell sensitive information to the highest hacker bidder. Choose your staff wisely.

Privacy and Tracking 

6 Security Lessons for Small Businesses in 2017

It’s important to note that online security and privacy aren’t the same, though they are closely intertwined. Small businesses are not just a good target for security issues, but are also constantly in danger of being under surveillance. Though tracking on the internet has become pretty much omnipresent, you still want to do all in your power to stay under the radar. Sometimes spyware will get into your business’ system and track all the activities of your staff and yourself only to send the information back to ad companies so that they can target you with ads, but sometimes hackers go for the big kill and manage to pull off identity theft or steal your bank account details, or the details of your customers, which is far worse. Using a VPN aka virtual private network to maintain your privacy is a good solution. Protecting small business privacy is much easier when you’ve got a tool that encrypts your entire internet connection, enables you to bypass geo-blocking and allows your employees to safely work remotely.

BYOD Policy

Each one of your employees, including yourself will bring their mobile devices to work with them and if they all connect to your business’ official Wi-Fi, security hell could break loose very easily. All you need is one unprotected device to let some malware or virus run rampant and the consequences could be severe. The best course of action is to set a separate internet network that will be used by all the guest devices in the office, so that the business network can remain safe and isolated. BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) policy should clearly specify the terms and conditions about employees using their devices at work, so that they’re aware of what is expected from them.

Data Breach Insurance

Security Lessons for Small Businesses in 2017

This is a failsafe well worth thinking about, though not too many business owners are ready to get insurance for data breach that might never happen. Fortunately, there are companies that offer quite affordable policies and you get some peace of mind by obtaining them. Just think about the fact that these policies will cover the expenses for the recovery of any security you’ve insured yourself against and if you end up in court, they will cover those fees too. Small businesses can suffer terrible financial losses from security issues, and having data breach insurance certainly softens the blow.

Do Regular Check Ups

With all the security tools you have to protect your business, it is very still important to do regular checkups of your system security. That is why we mentioned that it is vital to have an IT expert among your employees who can deal with these checks and keep you informed of any changes that might happen. Sometimes hackers are extremely resourceful and are able to hide malware very well so that even security software can’t find it, but human deduction and reasoning can. Do these checkups on top of everything else we talked about in this article and you will significantly diminish any chance of having to deal with security breaches in your small business.

How To Make Money Online With Bitcoin – Five2btc Review

Please Note: The information on this page is applicable to everyone irrespective of your country or where you live. But because I am a Nigerian, I would be making reference to my country once in a while. Please bear with me. lol

Now, Let’s Talk About The Money Making Aspect Of BITCOIN, This Is The Part Where I Need Your Undivided Attention. Please Drop Whatever It Is You Are Doing Right Now And Pay Close Attention. You’ll BE Glad You Did!


This question brings us to the next topic;


What is FIVE2BTC?

FIVE2BTC is a user community where people help each other with donations.  There is no global account of the administration where all donations go.  All donations go directly from member to member without intermediaries, in fact, FIVE2BTC only regulates the process – nothing more.  So the system belongs fully to users.”

One of the best ways to become rich with BITCOIN is through participating in online programs like…



3X2 core matrix

All these platforms run a very similar model that is dependent on Peer-2-peer(p2p) donation platform.

For Accurate Description:

Think of a platform like MMM but has the structure of a Network Marketing…

That is what these 3 platforms do…

Here is the major difference,

Five2BTC has 5 levels

Zarfund has 6 levels

3×2 Core has just 2 levels

I am on Five2BTC so I am going to explain to you step by step how this works…Our major focus is on Five2BTC

Five2btc is a direct member-to-member donation platform that uses ONLY bitcoins for transactions. Which means, no central account, no request for withdrawal, no admin. Your money (bitcoin) is paid straight into your Blockchain wallet; which is similar to your traditional bank account. Deposits, withdrawals, and transfers are done instantly!

Five2btc’s front man is David Vincente Martin from Spain.

Five2btc was officially launched in September 2016, and as at the time of writing this report, the number of Five2btc members worldwide is over 17,000 and increasing by the day.


Five2btc gives you the opportunity to accumulate up to 64 bitcoins monthly. In Five2btc you start with 0.01 bitcoins (N4,000) and grow this figure to 64 bitcoins (N25,000,000) monthly.

 Now, How Do You Do This?

Five2btc is a 2×5 forced matrix.
You sign up for free and you are placed on level 0. The system gives you 24 hours to upgrade to level 1. To upgrade to level 1, you will donate 0.01btc to your sponsor. Your sponsor is the person that referred you. You are given your referral link and are ready to start making money.

Hang on!
You only invite 2 people and no more. Even if you bring more than 2 people the system will not place them directly under you, but under the first 2 people you brought in (this is called the spill over effect). Be careful to bring in 2 people who are as zealous as you (or more zealous).


The first 2 people you bring will form your level 1 downline. Each of them will pay you 0.01btc (0.01btc = N4,000 ×2 = N8,000). 100% ROI. You will get your investment back with 100 percent profit immediately the two people you bring in pay you.

The 2 people directly under you will proceed to bring 2 people each. These 4 people will form your level 2 downline.

These 4 people will each donate 0.015 btc ×4 = 0.06btc (N6,000 ×4 = N24,000) to you when they upgrade to level 2 (as long as you’ve upgraded to Level 2).

The 4 people who have recently joined will bring 2 people each. These 8 people will form your level 3 downline.

Now these 8 people will each donate 0.04btc ×8 = 0.32btc (N16,000 ×8 = N128,000) to you when they upgrade to level 3 (as long as you’ve upgraded to Level 3).

It will interest you to know that these payments are done monthly. Which means on level 3, you are already on a monthly income of N128,000. For a business you started with just N4,000?

Now, That’s something!

Moving on…

The 8 people who have recently joined will bring 2 people each.
These 16 people will form your level 4 downline.

Now these 16 people will each donate 0.2btc ×16 = 3.2btc (80,000 ×16 = N1,280,000) to you when they upgrade to level 4 (as long as you’ve upgraded to Level 4).

The 16 people who have recently joined will bring 2 people each. These 32 people will form your level 5 downline.

Now these 32 people will each donate 2btc ×32 = 64btc (N800,000 ×32 = N25,600,000) to you when they upgrade to level 5 (as long as you’ve upgraded to Level 5).

#Breathes out*

I personally do not know anyone who is making as much as 25 million naira monthly.
That’s huge mehn!

Now, instead of doubting and criticising and over analyzing (which is the default mode of a typical Nigerian), why not press to know more and be guided properly?

The world has gone past the age where you have to use a hoe and a cutlass or work 8-5 to be able to make a living.
This is the Internet age where anything is possible! Give it a try today, even if for curiosity sake.

This might look like a get-rich-quick scheme, but I can assure you it’s not. You will get rich, but it will not be overnight.

It is almost impossible to succeed in Five2btc as an individual, which is why we formed a team. Team Alpha is the first and biggest Five2btc team in Africa.

Who know that it is better to try and fail, than to not try and regret. Who know that if they lose, they lose N4,000, but if they win, they win N25,000,000 (monthly).

By the top on that page, you will locate your referral link

PLEASE NOTE: Once you register on the platform, you only have 24hours to upgrade your membership level from level zero to level 1, failure to do so, your account would be deactivated. So if you do not have the 4,000 naira (0.01 BTC) to pay your up line/sponsor/referrer yet, please do not sign up on the site.

When you receive payments from any of the people you referred, you will get an email from Five2btc that looks like mine below


  1. You can refer members from all over the world to participate
  2. You can run the business on any device, mobile phones, tablets, laptops, desktops
  3. The registration fee is very small, a lot of people can afford it
  4. Upgrade must be done within 24hrs of registering, so anyone you refer must also pay you their upgrade fee within 24hours, meaning you can even get your money back within 24hrs of joining it.
  5. Payment is monthly, so the money you make is recurring and it would continue to increase monthly as more members are added to the system
  6. Bitcoin is the mode of payment which you can either save for future investment or even convert it to Naira (You know how much a dollar is right now. Imagine having just one Bitcoin which is over $700 at the moment)

I highly advise you to give this a try, believe me this would be the best decision you would ever make.

I made my money back in less than 24hours of joining. My upline already had her two members completed so the spill over effect naturally assigned someone under me and the person paid me. So I got my money back even before I started promoting my own referral link. I couldn’t even believe it. A lot of people would be glad if you introduce this type of program to them.
