ITEX — First Trading Community To Accept Bitcoin

The ITEX Corporation (, a leading marketplace for cashless business transactions in North America, has declared it now accepts Bitcoin as a payment option for its more than 20,000 member businesses.

Bitcoin is the world's largest circulated encrypted digital currency and ITEX is the largest trading community in the USA and Canada. The Bitcoin peer-to-peer network is made up of thousands of computers run by individuals around the world and doesn't have a central clearinghouse or answer to a singular authority. The finite supply of Bitcoins will grow at a mathematically determined rate of expansion from its current 12.5 million units to a maximum of 21 million units.

The ITEX dollar is a virtual currency used as a method of payment within the ITEX marketplace and trading community. In contrast to Bitcoin, ITEX utilizes a centralized system where it determines the amount of currency in circulation, based on numerous factors, including the needs of its member merchants. ITEX seeks to provide a platform for peer-to-peer and centralized virtual currency models to co-exist and complement each other.

"We are excited about the momentum the nascent virtual currency industry is experiencing and anticipate greater support for our virtual currency, the ITEX dollar, as time progresses," stated Steven White, Chairman and CEO.

"ITEX contracted with Coinbase of San Francisco, the largest platform of merchants and consumers accepting Bitcoin, to create our e-wallet service, process payments and convert Bitcoin into U.S. dollars. We invite the millions of Bitcoin enthusiasts to participate in our trading community," White concluded. — World's Largest Depository Of Barter Information

Relaxation Essential To Productivity

Although as entrepreneurs we are driven to succeed, we need to realize that taking time to relax isn't a gift just for ourselves — it's a necessary and indispensable part of performing at our peak. And it helps to keep us sane.

If you want to accomplish true success, you must take your well-being seriously; realizing it's easy to grow accustomed to an increased level of stress. To avoid getting burned out, don't just make relaxation an item on your to-do list, but learn to rejuvenate yourself creatively by:

  • Taking a break ? even if just for a minute. Relaxation can take any length of time and whatever form you find appealing. Simply tensing your muscles and allowing them to relax is an effective way to decompress.

    This can be done by finding a quiet place to lie down. Uncross your legs and rest your palms on your stomach. Close your eyes and breathe deeply. Tense every muscle from the top of your head to your toes for a second or two. Then relax and clear your mind for a moment by picturing a serene landscape.

  • Making relaxation part of your routine. Take 15-minutes each day to reflect and have downtime. Achieve clarity by recognizing your successes, letting go of your stress, and deciding on the best step for you to take next.

  • Turning your frustration into inspiration. When obstacles cross your path, it's much easier to get riled up than it is to calm down. Instead of becoming aggravated about occurrences out of your control, relax and try to spot opportunities. Ask yourself, "How can this situation fuel my success?"? You will be amazed at the possibilities you discover.

  • Saying no to less important things. You are in control of your to-do list, and therefore determine what the priorities are. Being able to say no to the less important items is a big part of your overall success, and people will respect your honesty.

Remember, pay attention to any physical or emotional symptoms that arise in response to stress. Then recognize that it's OK to relax, slack off, or get more sleep. Success comes from attaining your goals — and relaxation has to be one of them.
