What advantages are there in supporting artists with AppleBytes, as opposed to cash or other traditional methods of transferring money?
- AppleBytes can be given by any fan, anywhere in the world, to artists anywhere in the world.
- Fans or artists don't need credit cards or bank accounts to give and receive AppleBytes.
- There are no governmental, corporate or regional restrictions, telling fans who they can support.
- Artists receive and can spend donations of AppleBytes almost instantly.
- There are no fees for giving artists AppleBytes, compared to credit cards, Paypal or bank transfer fees, etc.
- Many artist and fans wish they could support their favorite artists, but simply do not have the extra cash. With AppleByte fans and artists can actually earn AppleBytes by linking their computers to support the AppleByte network.*
- Artists can also support themselves without taking time away from their creative efforts, just by connecting their computers to the network*
- AppleByte provides a focused, dedicated community of artists and art lovers, providing exposure of an artist's work to fans around the world**
- And of course, AppleBytes can be converted to cash, with no fees charged!***
- AppleBytes can be saved as a speculative investment. The history of digital currencies demonstrates that as new digital currencies become more widely used, they tend to appreciate in value. Will AppleByte follow this trend? Perhaps, but there are no guaranties.****

** The AppleByte art community currently has more than 35,000 members via social media (FaceBook, Twitter, and our Forum).
*** The AppleByte Foundation provides many ways AppleBytes can be converted to cash. See our current places to spend AppleBytes: http://forum.artbyte.me/index.php?/forum/25-places-to-use-applebytes/
**** Investing and saving digital currencies is a very high risk venture. No one should hold more AppleBytes, than they could afford to lose.
