Angels PC Clinic’s shop will be closing on Saturday 29th February 2020.

As most of you know, Angels has been in Swalecliffe for the past 10 years, 10 years in fact this April.  Over the years we have met and become friends with so many of you.  It will be sad not to have you popping in even just to say Hi.  But it’s going to be ok, we are going Mobile and Remote.

We have many customers and we shall continue to service every one of you, but on a mobile/remote basis.

So, come 29th February 2020 the doors will close, for the last time.

We hope the next business that moves into here will have great success and service the local community with their needs, whatever it may be.

If you would like further information on ways to contact us once we are officially closed, please call into the shop NOW and pickup an information leaflet which will give you so many ways to make contact with an Angel.

Home visits will not be the only way we can help you; a very popular way is for us to Remote into your computer.  This is explained further under the Remote Heading and the Services and Charges Blog section.  Pricing for Home Visits and Remote Support are all listed there too.

Well, it’s been great, but the tide has changed and we need to swim with the flow not against it.

Julie and Matty xx

This shop will be available to rent, soon after we close, so any enquiries please   contact Julie on 07546 228001.  Out of courtesy for the lovely girls next door at the Beauty Barbour, enquiries from other hairdressers/barbers will not be accepted.  Hope you understand.

 

 

 

 

The Bitcoin revolution is here.

The market cap today (22.1.2020), ie total market value on Bitcoin, is over $157 Billion.  That’s a lot of money invested into Bitcoin. 

But why?

         bitcoin pic                               litecoin

Satoshi Yakamoto, creator of Bitcoin, started work on this project in 2007. By 2010 he vanished.  It’s not known whether Satoshi was a man, a women or a group of people.  Some believe he was from Japan and others think he may actually have been from the UK because of his slang used in some email correspondence.  The reason for his disappearance? This may be a reason –

“Whoever this person is is intelligent enough to know that going against a monetary system is going to upset a LOT of some of the most powerful people in the WORLD, who rely on the monetary system not changing.

If they did have a public identity, then the idea of a decentralised currency could be attacked through that public identity.

Because there isn’t a public figure, all that’s left is the idea. And an idea is a hell of a lot harder to destroy than someone’s image.

It’s beautifully planned.”

Link to the Bitcoin White Paper.

Shortly Julie will be offering a Learning Package to help those interested get SAFELY into Cryptocurrency.  If you are interested please email Julie.

These are some of the area’s that will be covered  –

1. The History of Bitcoin
2. What is Bitcoin.
3. Bitcoin Mining and the Blockchain
4. Getting Prepared to Buy Bitcoin, safely.
5. Why Bitcoin is not just about Money.
6. Alternative Coins.
7. Terminology Explained ie HODL, FOMO.

There are  exciting times ahead!  It’s not too late to become involved as only 1% of the population thus far know anything about Cryptocurrency.  Don’t miss out – enjoy what is to come!!!

If you find this interesting, and would like to know more, please message us and we can add you to our Crypto Course Mailing List.

Angels PC Clinic  has already helped many existing  customers by using Remote Support to show them how to successfully become involved in Cryptocurrency.  If you want to know more please message us.
