Flubit.com and MonetaryUnit (MUE) teams link up to develop deeper crypto adoption world-wide.
Today MonetaryUnit are pleased to announce that the two separate teams will be collaborating together on MUE and Flubit.com commercial projects from 2019 and onwards.
“Over the last 6 months we’ve focussed on positioning Flubit.com as the world’s leading eCommerce marketplace for accepting Crypto payments” says Byron Barnard, founder of MonetaryUnit. “Now Team MUE are excited to announce that the Flubit.com commercial team will be working alongside us as we drive a singular vision for the future of MUE. The Flubit.com team bring years of commercial and product success, and these learnings provide us with increased opportunities for global adoption of MUE as a cryptocurrency and the continued success of the MUE projects.”, Barnard continued.
MonetaryUnit was founded as a decentralised, self-sustaining and self-governed cryptocurrency project. Its focus is to create a cryptocurrency and blockchain technology that would be accessible to all and free from the stigma that the blockchain space is only for techies. Over the years, it has delivered key, sustainable, projects which have enabled the general public to enter the crypto market. The MUE ecosystem currently consists of Flubit.com, MonetaryUnit.org, MUEX.io, StartMy.io, CoinBuy.io and CryptoFeed.io.
In the spring of 2018, MonetaryUnit acquired Flubit.com with a view to making a bold statement in the world of blockchain and cryptocurrency. With the Flubit.com team’s commercial experience, and MonetaryUnit's expertise with cryptocurrency and blockchain technologies, small businesses (SMEs) have already been empowered to sell their items to a whole new market. Up until now, there has been $15BN/day volume of trade running through cryptocurrency which current online sellers (selling perhaps on Amazon and eBay) simply couldn’t reach.
Proprietary technologies and processes have already been built by the teams to handle the immediate exchange between crypto and fiat payments, which has allowed sellers to receive crypto orders without needing to deal with crypto payments themselves. On Flubit.com, this seamless operation enables sellers to interact with the platform in a risk-free manner, avoiding market-price fluctuations, whilst still being able (for the first time) to reach this untapped market.
“As part of the initial collaboration effort we have already been able to reduce prices on the platform by an additional 10-15% when MUE (MonetaryUnit Coin) is used to pay for goods”, says Bertie Stephens, CEO of Flubit.com. “As we enter 2019, we are looking forward to seeing MUE prosper as our platform starts interacting more heavily with the current MUE ecosystem. With the significant experience the MUE team have in the crypto market, we are excited to bridge the gap between blockchain and commercial products.” Stephens added.
Moving into 2019, the project continues to build exciting new blockchain and crypto processes, blending traditional shopping with new-world technologies, growing adoption for both small business, crypto, and non-crypto users. With the announcement today, the blockchain space no longer only benefits techies, but is also the wallet of me, you and everyone.

Fixed compiler warning for class vs. struct.

As part of the wider strategy for mass adoption of MonetaryUnit (MUE) we have today launched the next stage of this campaign.
Every year 10's of thousands of shoppers buy products from Flubit.com using credit/debit card.
Over 85% of these shoppers use mobile devices to place their orders.
Starting today, we are offering mobile device shoppers* MUE cashback on every card purchase & directing them to download and install the MonetaryUnit mobile wallet.
To grow adoption of MUE we have to show & attract non-crypto users to MUE and Flubit.com is the perfect platform to do this, not least because MUE users get the VERY BEST pricing.
Team MUE/Flubit are committed to growing the MUE ecosystem and look forward to introducing MUE to many tens of thousands of new users over the coming months.
People who would otherwise never have heard of MUE or even crypto.
Lets make it a great experience for them
Screenshots of this very simple process are below showing the post payment process.
*currently only available for Android users. iPhone users coming soon.
`This proposal is for the next 6 budget cycles.
120,000 MUE each cycle (14 days) for the next 6 cycles, making a total of 720,000 MUE.
The MUE project has many costs to keep it not only running on a day to day basis, but more importantly building and growing it.
This proposal is the request for project funding for the next 3 months.
The funds from this proposal, based on current prices do NOT pay to keep the project running, but do contribute significantly.
Until the MUE price is of a $ price of around $0.07 to fully sustain the projects costs, this proposal will be requested every quarter for renewal to keep the project running.
As for the past 4+ years the remaining costs will be covered in the main part by myself & some of the core team, and as always any donations would be very welcome (pm @Byron#7437 in discord - Byron#7437).
For those of you with little experience/knowledge of running a large multi-million dollar project like this, costs are multiple and large, examples of which are;
(It's important to note none of the core team have ever been paid - in time it is only right this changes)
Back up solutions
3rd party service fees
Legal costs (our last legal bill was $20k for compliance)
Conferences (CoinFest UK 2019 - at current price requires 480,000 MUE)
For those of you with concerns that other people cannot make proposals, we ask you check out StartMy.io which was created to cater for these very circumstances, and unlike budget proposals does not require 500 MUE fee.
We will also allocate UPTO 10% of our budget fund to donate to worthy campaigns on StartMy.io which in turn will help grow that platform.
Without allocating these funds to the project we cannot continue to grow and show the rest of the world that we are not afraid to "be the first" to do things, or push the boundaries, or try to do better than has come before.
But not just that, because, without these funds the day to day operations of the project, the devs who work so hard for us and its wider ecosystem will be severely affected.

I'm very happy to announce the appointment of @Moonshot | phore.io as MUE technical advisor.
This retained position will help guide MUEs technology moving forward, keeping our code not only up to date, but also advising us on technology progression moving forward.
So, expect to see updates in our github and new wallet versions moving forward. For those of you unaware, moonshot and team phore.io were appointed for the transition to POS, and did it in what must be record time, so there is already an established & proven track record.
We're very happy to have moonshot on-board and look forward to the benefits his wealth of crypto & commercial experience will bring to the project.
Team Flubit/MUE are very happy to announce the live beta launch of crypto integration into https://flubit.com.
You can now buy millions of products, across hundreds of categories from thousands of suppliers and checkout in crypto.
We have partnered with several logistics suppliers and you can also have your orders delivered globally.
This is nothing less than a game changer for crypto.
we should have the staking calculator up in the next few days, but for now, you can manually calculate staking from https://chainz.cryptoid.info/mue/#!extraction
its currently about 50% ROI vs 35% ROI for MasterNodes
currently 26.5 million coins being staked
so do (yournumberofcoins/26.5 million x 100) for your % of staking rewards
The staking rewards are circa 36,000 MUE per day
Then multiply the number of coins you'd get by staking by 365 to give you Y
Y divided by yournumberofcoins x 100 for your ROI %
e.g for a MasterNode operator
500,000/26,500,000 x 100 = 1.89% of daily staking rewards
1.89% of 36,000 = 680 mue
680 x 365 for yearly staking rewards = 248,200
Yearly ROI is 248,000/500,000 x 100 = 49.6%
this is just an example, and will change
This proposal is for the next 3 budget cycles.
49,000 MUE each cycle (14 days) for the next 3 cycles, making a total of 147,000.
Due to the previous proposal for reclaiming the 1.5btc relisting fund over the next 3 cycles also, this dev fund proposal is significantly smaller than what is required to cater for the projects overheards, so a new proposal will be created once these 3 budget cycles have completed.
