[BLOG] How to Accept Payments in Nano as a Business and Avoid Fiat Ramps Adoption

[BLOG] How to Accept Payments in Nano as a Business and Avoid Fiat Ramps

Accepting payments in nano as a business can be as simple as setting up a self-custody wallet and properly communicating it. However, doubts can arise about how to liquidate or make this XNO circulate.

Community contributor Vini Barbosa addresses this topic in this article: "How to Accept Payments in Nano as a Business and Avoid Fiat Ramps."

I have been accepting payments in nano (ticker: XNO, symbol: Ӿ) since 2020, and while onboarding others to do the same, one of the most recurring concerns he identified is "How to properly off-ramp to fiat currencies to save, spend, or pay for business costs?" This is a fair concern, which I want to address in this article.

TL;DR: You won't need to off-ramp most of the time. Or, at least, that's the general idea: Avoiding on-ramps and off-ramps as much as possible.

Cake Wallet implemented nano-gpt.com in its marketplace on May 12.

NanoGPT is an AI pay-per-use service that allows users to access ChatGPT-4, Dall-E 3, Claude 3 Opus, and other premium subscription AIs with payments using nano (ticker: XNO, symbol Ӿ).

 “AI chatbots have become very popular and, in Cake Wallet, we believe cryptocurrencies like the ones supported by the app can be a great way to open up access for them [AI chatbots], more efficiently and privately  – as we are fully committed to these attributes as a company. Also,  nano is perfect for this micropayment use case due to having zero fees.”
- Vik Sharma, founder of Cake Wallet, for Finbold

Mira Hurley, founder of NanoGPT, was giving away some nano in a post on 𝕏 - for Cake Wallet users to try the app for free.

Starting Circular Economies with Nano Networking Meet-Ups Adoption

Starting Circular Economies with Nano Networking Meet-Ups

The Nano Community Programme has evolved, and now, more than ever, we need every community member's support and activity to increase nano awareness and adoption worldwide. In this article, Nano Foundation's Community Lead Vini Barbosa guides you through a meet-up structure idea that anyone can reproduce anywhere in the world — just like sending and receiving nano (XNO).

Building circular economies is one of our most important goals to foment real-world adoption of nano as a currency. A circular economy exists when entities can directly spend the coins they earned with another participant, and so on.

For that, I introduce you to the Nano Networking meet-up proposed structure. This should be a general guide for the first steps of organizing a local meet-up aiming to build circular economies worldwide.

By following this guide, all nano community members will be able to host their local nano networking meet-ups and become leaders (or ambassadors) locally.

"Traveling with nano is possible using the right tools," says Vini Barbosa Adoption

"Traveling with nano is possible using the right tools," says Vini Barbosa

Nano Foundation’s Community Lead Vini Barbosa has shown it is possible to travel (mostly) with nano in his pockets.

On a trip to Curitiba (Paraná, Brazil), Vini has covered nearly 90% of his expenses with XNO. Moreover, he explained to the team that these units were previously earned in a job he does for Ririro.com — a children’s story website by Pim Coffeng.

“I was gifted the flying ticket for this 2-day trip but I could’ve purchased it with nano through Travala if I wanted to. The hotel was booked using Travala, and Uber through NanoBankBot (a Brazil-only service for gift cards and on/off-ramp, by Wenderson from the Brazilian community). However, the best part was directly spending nano at Corleone Craft Burger. From my self-custody wallet to Corleone owner's self-custody wallet, no intermediaries. The hamburger is delicious, by the way. The thing is, traveling with nano is possible using the right tools.

Vini’s trip expenses:

Brazilian Real (BRL) - R$63.00 (10%)

  • Airport Lunch 1: R$34.00
  • Airport Lunch 2: R$28.00

Nano (XNO) - R$559.52 (90%)

  • Hotel: Ӿ53.74 (R$295.57)
  • 5 Uber trips: Ӿ35.04 (R$200.00)
  • Corleone Craft Burger: Ӿ12.79 (R$63.95)
    • 2x Beer:  Ӿ4.8 (R$24.00)
    • 1x Hamburger: Ӿ5.99 (R$29.95)
    • 2x Water: Ӿ2.00 (R$10.00)

TOTAL: R$621.52

PRISM: A collection of simple micro-tasks for promoting nano (inc. nano payouts) Adoption

PRISM: A collection of simple micro-tasks for promoting nano (inc. nano payouts)

A common problem in decentralized communities is members wanting to help out, but not knowing where to begin, or finding tasks too overwhelming.

u/Corican wanted to address this problem, and created PRISM - a central hub for micro-tasks that benefit the nano ecosystem and community.

https://zealy.io/c/prismgroup/ 

PRISM operates on zealy.io, a website that lets organizers set tasks for community members and rewards them for completing them. For example: you could be asked to Like a specific Tweet and get a small XP boost or $XNO reward for doing so.
