Bitcoin Future 2020’s December 21st Online Conference will Discover Future of Bitcoin by Showcasing Experts, Sceptics and Maximalists

Bitcoin Future 2020’s December 21st Online Conference will Discover Future of Bitcoin by Showcasing Experts, Sceptics and Maximalists

Malta’s Bitcoin Club announce details of their online conference

Bitcoin Press Release: Malta’s Bitcoin Club announce details of their online conference beginning December 21st 2019, to bridge the gap between “Bitcoin Twitter” and the outer world. The conference will see more than 30 speakers including Stephan Livera, Tone Vays, Giacomo Zucco and many more, with tickets as low as €9.99.

5th December, Valletta, Malta: Bitcoin is all about knowledge. Many people think they know everything but they actually have very little understanding. Bitcoin Future 2020 will change this and catch peoples interest at the heart. Bitcoin is not about getting rich quick, but a very beautiful new approach to money that can help millions of people around the world to have more chances to prosper and build personal wealth. The goal of the conference is dedicated to provide a high level of education without the restrictions of high cost. Often, conferences with world leading experts are unaffordable for many people so Bitcoin Future 2020 decided to use the internet to lower the entry barrier. This way participants can save on travel costs and accomodation for speakers and attendees, and use the proceeds to have even higher level experts on the lineup,

whilst heavily reducing the ticket price.

“It might make sense just to get some [Bitcoin] in case it catches on. If enough people think the same way, that becomes a self fulfilling prophecy.” – Satoshi Nakamoti

Many experts expect the price to surge with the block reward halving in May 2020 and see the price shoot up to new all-time-highs. But right now the sentiment is low because Bitcoin doesn’t seem to be able to pull out of the bearish trend. One of the reasons for this could be the great discrepancy between the progress of Bitcoin on a technological level and the education and level of understanding of everyday people and business leaders alike. Bitcoin is currently on an its most advanced technological level, and much-needed second layer scaling solutions are being rapidly adopted, one exchange at the time. But not many people are aware of those developments as they have written Bitcoin off completely. Furthermore, many have been dissapointed, lost interest or even have a negative opinion about Bitcoin due to uncertain regulatory environment, price volatility and misconceptions.

Similar to the time before and after the 2017 boom, people were hesitant to buy when price was low, as they had little understanding of the technology. Then, based on emotional factors, they bought when the price was on its way to the dizzying heights seen at the end of the year. Many could not sell at the peak and now feel the pain of the price crash. However, regardless of price and regulatory elements, Bitcoin continues its march as a new asset class that has the potential to outperform

other asset classes and currencies.

“We aim to simply provide honest and unbiased information on how experts see Bitcoin in 2020. Experts who really understand the technology and have been working on it for many years. I expect we will blow minds of hundreds of attendees because purely looking at the lineup, I can’t believe myself how many amazing speakers we managed to bring on. It’s literally years of knowledge from some of the best bitcoin experts on the lineup” Said Leon Siegmund, Founder of the Bitcoin Club Malta

Leon Continued: “I am really excited for all the insights, the discussions and the workshop sessions that we will get. I love it when a lot of people can learn from each other and a conference creates this sort of momentum that really makes you feel the energy generated. I think it’s a must attend for anyone who is just slightly interested in the space.” 

The Bitcoin Future 2020 conference looks set to be one of the most informative and easily accessible conferences this year. The Malta Bitcoin Club are also offering logo sponsor opportunities, VIP tickets, and a very special “Bitcoin Billionaire” experience, with first-class flights, 5* hotel experience, private Tesla chauffer, spas, restaurants, and access to the Bitcoin Club Malta’s full range of connections for networking and leverage.

Bitcoin Set For Breakout Amid Escalating Iran Tensions

Bitcoin Set For Breakout Amid Escalating Iran Tensions

Bitcoin could be set for a major breakout as escalating tensions between the US and Iran drive investors

to safe-haven assets, with cryptocurrency and gold values surging. Tensions in the Middle East reached a critical point on Thursday after US President Donald Trump ordered a drone strike on a vehicle convoy near Baghdad International Airport, which killed the commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) Quds Force Qasem Soleimani. Widely regarded as the second most powerful figure in Iran, his death has prompted a dramatic escalation of tensions between the US, Iran, and its allies. As a result, investors are flocking to safe-haven assets such as gold and oil, as well as Bitcoin, which has seen a short-term breakout.

The potential of impending war in the region led to a 3% pop in oil prices, 2% in gold, and, most interesting of all, a 5% rise in the value of Bitcoin (BTC). As Forbes reported, referencing a chart of the recent upward movement of the world’s largest cryptocurrency, “This is a very interesting chart because it shows the global professionals reacting to the news much faster than the private traders and it might be suggested this hike is the result of Middle Eastern retail piling into BTC as a flight to safety rather than the relatively non-existent institutional money.”

Forbes also said that Bitcoin has the potential to drive back towards previous all-time highs based purely off investors seeking out haven capital in territories where capital is intensely controlled, particularly in China and Iran. Bitcoin is a relative newcomer to the world of safe-haven assets and has an extra benefit over oil and precious minerals in that it is considerably more limited in its availability than other assets, and will condense even more following the halving, which is expected sometime around May.  Tether (USDT) Dominance Persists Amidst Mainstream Adoption. While Bitcoin enjoyed a significant bull-run in the first half of 2019, jumping from around $4,000 a year ago to nearly $13,000 in July, the latter six months of the year saw some sizeable losses as it closed at just over $7,000 on New Year’s Eve. The situation in Iran has ensured that Bitcoin is beginning 2020 in the green and is currently trading for just over $7,500.

Bitcoin (BTC) Soars Above $8K Mark on Geopolitical Concerns

Bitcoin (BTC) Soars Above $8K Mark on Geopolitical Concerns


One of the most remarkable events in the crypto space

took place in the first half of 2019 when Bitcoin (BTC) went on a remarkable rally that almost mirrored the rally from 2017. However, the rally soon fizzled out, and it has been a bit of a rollercoaster ride for the world’s biggest cryptocurrency by market cap. That being said, BTC has managed to make a remarkable comeback in 2020, and today it breached the psychologically important level of $8,000. It should also be noted that the token hit its highest level today since November, and it goes without saying that it has given rise to a lot of positivity in the market.Tensions in the Middle East Between the United States and Iran

Crypto market experts believe that the rising tensions in the Middle East between the United States and Iran are a major factor in the rally. The uncertainty in the market might have prompted people to park their money in an asset that is not controlled by any government, meaning a lot of capital might have flowed into Bitcoin. If that is the case, then one can expect this state of affairs to continue since the tensions in the Middle East are far from over. That being said, there are other factors at play as well with regards to this rally in BTC. Emmanuel Goh, who is in charge of Skew, a crypto derivative tracker, has stated that what is being experienced at this point in time is known as the ‘January effect’ in the stock market. He said, “Professional investors are also back from the Christmas break and starting to deploy capital.”

Telegram Releases Eagerly Awaited Update on Future of TON. That could well be one of the bigger reasons behind the rally in the world’s biggest cryptocurrency, but at the same time, it could also be said that the geopolitical stars have aligned for Bitcoin. Crypto enthusiasts would do well to track the movements over the coming hours. Bitcoin is trading higher by 1.43% at $8,032.

Crypto news weekly roundup

Crypto news weekly roundup

2020 has gotten off to a busy start in the cryptocurrency space, with a lot of activity seen across the globe.

With the first full week of the year now almost over, everyone is settling into their routines and looking for new steps in the continued advancement of crypto and blockchain. As usual, this week has seen both positive and negative events, but they are all helping to shape Bitcoin’s future. Fintech company Longfin became one of the first companies of the new year to fall under the guillotine of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The firm had already been targeted by the commission for its shady practices, but its CEO, Venkata S. Meenavalli, will now have to pay fines worth $400,000 as he continues to be investigated for his prior misguided business management skills. He is also permanently forbidden from holding a position with any public company. Crypto hardware wallet Ledger found itself defending against malware using its name when a crypto enthusiast suddenly lost around $19,500 in Zcash. The user had inadvertently downloaded from Google Play a Chrome browser extension reportedly published by Ledger, but which was actually a crypto-stealing app. There hasn’t been any word on whether or not he was able to recuperate his losses, but it’s a reminder that due diligence is paramount when it comes to protecting financial data.

In its annual report on transparency and company activity, crypto exchange Kraken revealed that law enforcement departments from across the globe are contacting the company in record numbers while looking for it to reveal personal details on specific platform users. In 2018, the exchange received 475 requests and 710 were submitted last year. Most—61%—came from U.S. law enforcement, although this was lower than the 66% seen a year earlier. The U.S. SEC is planning on continuing its scrutiny of crypto activity this year, but it may be ready to do so in a more amicable manner. The commission’s Office of Compliance Inspections and Examinations revealed that it is going to be looking at the space, but in ways more aligned with it being a legitimate financial sector and less as only a haven for black markets, drug deals and scams.

That revelation came just after the SEC was denied a request seeking bank records from Telegram. As it continues to fight the social media platform for allegedly selling securities illegally in conjunction with the GRAM cryptocurrency and the Telegram Open Network, the SEC wanted the company to hand over its financials; however, a New York district court judge denied the request, but only temporarily. Telegram is still required to show certain financial details, as long as the release of the data complies with foreign data privacy laws. An exchange out of Singapore is causing a lot of grief for its users. COSS has suspended trading, explaining that the platform has to undergo maintenance. However, as has been seen in the past, the “maintenance” excuse has been used to cover up everything from hacks to exit scams. Perhaps COSS will be the exception, not the rule.

The crackdown on illegal crypto operations continues. The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) shut down a crypto scheme led by Benjamin Reynolds. Reynolds was behind Control-Finance before it suddenly disappeared along with its founder and the CFTC is now trying to locate him. It has put a call out to international sources to help in the hunt, but nothing has yet turned up. Another fraudulent operation has been broken up, as well. Dunamiscoins is found in Uganda and the company’s executives are now on trial for running a complete scam. After operating for almost two years, the firm shut down last December, and prosecutors are looking to hold the individuals accountable for their illegal activity.

A tale of two Bitcoin

A tale of two Bitcoin

This article should really be called the tale of three Bitcoin: BTC, BCH, and Bitcoin SV (BSV).

But that title doesn’t have a nice ring to it, and in conversation, not many people seem to be concerned about BCH being a threat to Bitcoin SV. So for that reason, we will only be taking a look at BTC and BSV in this article. Many BSV supporters often compare the two networks. They put BTC head to head with BSV and believe we live in a world where only one of these networks will survive. However, I don’t think that’s the case—at least, not for the foreseeable future. I think a good portion of Mr. Ayre’s statement is correct; BTC and BSV don’t compete. I also think the part about anonymous tokens being banned is true, and that other blockchains are going to lose relevance—although for a different reason than the one Calvin states, but we’ll save that story for another day.

Why BTC and BSV will co-exist

Modern-day utility in BTC is that it is an alternative investment vehicle that has striking similarities to gold; for this reason, many people call BTC “digital gold.” Although Bitcoin SV also has that property (digital gold), the utility in BSV comes from it being an infrastructure protocol that can be used to create the internet of value. 

Alternative for gold

Today, BTC is primarily used as an investment vehicle. Although there was a point in time when it’s primary use-case was a pseudo-anonymous payment rail, those days are over. The government has cracked down on Dark Net Markets, and users of those markets have turned away from BTC to digital currencies that give them more privacy. In addition, BTC’s technical limitations, such as 1MB blocks, make it difficult for developers to build businesses and programs on top of the network, so for that reason, not many are interested in building atop BTC.

So if BTC is seeing a very small amount of activity as a payment rail, and if it’s not being used as an infrastructure protocol, then what is it being used as? Many will tell you that it is being used as an alternative to gold. BTC is similar to gold, but has many advantages; it has a finite supply, and it acts as a hedge against inflation, but it is easier to carry, is highly divisible, and is relatively liquid just like physical gold. Individuals who purchase BTC are primarily doing it for investment purposes. In other words, they are speculating on BTC and believe it will be more valuable in the future than it is today due to its similarities—and advantages—to gold among many other reasons that they might have.

Internet of value

And then we have the internet of value, which at the moment, can only come to fruition by using BSV in your stack. BSV does everything that BTC was supposed to do since it is not restricted by technical limitations. This gives companies the ability to create businesses and applications that empower consumers. Several companies are using BSV to build applications and platforms that give consumers ownership of the data they create online, the ability to monetize that data, censorship resistance, and increased transparency. 

Why both will survive

BTC and BSV will survive for at least two reasons:

1. they serve different purposes, and
2. they capture different audiences.

BTC attracts the majority of the individuals who are interested in an alternative investment vehicle. At the same time, BSV captures the lion’s share of developers who would like to build a market-disrupting business. Although BSV has all of the same properties of BTC  (without the technical limitations), we cannot overlook that BTC was first to market. I say that to say this, people—especially newcomers—are going to be more familiar with the item that hit the market first before they become familiar with the alternatives that followed. That is why we continue to see the individuals interested in an alternative investment gravitate toward BTC before they even consider that BSV is a viable option. And why highly technical individuals who have been a part of the cryptocurrency communities and markets for quite some time gravitate toward BSV.

Final thoughts

At the end of the day, both BTC and BSV are going to be around for many years to come. In all honesty, the two don’t compete, and they captivate different audiences. One is primarily being used as an alternative investment vehicle. The other is being used to create the companies and programs that could ultimately disrupt many modern internet applications as we know it, bringing us closer to a world with an internet of value that empowers the end user.

It is easy to get caught up in a dispute, even an echo-chamber, regarding why only one of these blockchain networks will survive. But when you talk to the average person, especially a no coiner who is interested in jumping into the crypto-markets, they are going to have no idea what someone means when they say that only one coin will survive. While BSV is considered the original Bitcoin now that BTC forked off taking its ticker symbol deviating from Satoshi’s whitepaper to create its own unique protocol, both blockchains will exist for some time since neither compete head to head anymore.

Best Slots You Can Play with Bitcoins

Best Slots You Can Play with Bitcoins

The online casino industry was one of the first industries to start accepting cryptocurrencies.

The blockchain technology that cryptocurrencies operate on worked well with the online casino industry as online gamblers wanted to maintain their anonymity and not disclose their personal or financial information. Online casinos that adopted cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin – which is the most popular cryptocurrency in the world saw many of their players opt to use Bitcoin as their banking method. Today, there are a number of online casinos out there that allow players to use Bitcoin to play online slots, online poker and other games. Here is a popular choice. Bitcoin’s appeal as a low-key, efficient, and cheap means of money transmission has finally led to its widespread usage in casinos and their video slots. It’s certainly a hit among operators and online bettors seeking lower chargeback risk, reduced fees and a way to get around legacy payment systems. With that in mind, here are the 5 best slots you can play with Bitcoin.

5. Greedy Goblins by Betsoft

Greedy Goblins by Betsoft Software is one of the most popular online slot games that accepts bitcoins. It’s a 5-reel, 3-row, 30-payline slots game that can be played on both regular computers like PC desktops and notebook laptops as well as mobile devices like tablets and smartphones. This magical forest and monsters adventure game features both free spins and a progressive jackpot. This online slot has an encouraging RTP rate of 97.2 percent. The game is the sequel to Once Upon a Time, which also features the same goblin villains on a medieval fable or fairy tale setting. Its plot involves a magical forest setting full of the avaricious and covetous titular creatures going up against the brilliant-minded, adorable elves.

If the game proves to be to your tastes, you should have an easy time immersing yourself into its plot, which involves insatiable monsters keeping a watchful eye on every move you make and every win you get. The value of the coins can go from ¢2 to ¢5. You can also bet up to 30 pay lines with 5 coins per line, so the maximum bet spin should cost you $150 or its equivalent value in Bitcoin. That might sound like loads of money, but Greedy Goblins has an ironically huge maximum payout of 1.2 million credits.

4. Book of Pyramids by SoftSwiss

The Book of Pyramids is an online bitcoin slot by SoftSwiss. This 5-reel, 3-row, and 9-payline video slot has an Ancient Egypt theme and offers up to 33 free spins as a bonus. The online slot can be played via desktop computers, tablets and smartphones. This popular Bitcoin slot game has a generous RTP rate of 97.13 percent. Thematically, Book of Pyramids uses one of the oldest themes in the book when it comes to slots.

It doesn’t break new ground in terms of its Egyptian-themed presentation, as seen in its use of Egyptian artifacts and hieroglyphic symbols like pyramids, tombs (with gold playing cards), the Eye of Horus, the Eye of Rah, the Bastet cat, pharaohs, the scarab symbol (for the scatter), the Ankh, and Egyptian headrests. Although the game trudges through a well-beaten path, it’s still fun to play and easy to understand. Its creators are particular about numerology since all the numbers on the game are quite specific. For example, 3 or more scarabs can activate 11, 22, or 33 free spins. Furthermore, the best paying payout awards you 9,999 times your line bet if you get a 5-of-a-kind line. The second best is at 6,666 times, the third best is 3,333 times, the fourth best is 888 times, and so forth. Finally, the 9-payline slot is able to differentiate itself from other Egyptianesque slot games with its colorful graphics and decoration-rich interface.

3. The Ninja by Endorphina

The Ninja by Endorphina is another popular bitcoin friendly online slot. This online slot has a theme involving a ninja battling against a group of modern-day covert agents. The Ninja slot also features free spins and a 3D wild symbol on top of the ability to deposit and withdraw using bitcoins.

The mobile-friendly game is a 5-reel, 3-row, and 20-payline virtual slots machine. It also features a generous 96.13 percent RTP rate. The fascinating world of The Ninja showcases a feared and famous spy who’s so good he has earned the eponymous title as a badge of honor. The immersive and fun online slot game from Endorphina involves loads of thematic stealthy action translated into slots iconography. In terms of gameplay, it’s filled with free spins and bonuses that are represented by the most beautiful of animations throughout every spin attempt. You’ll feel like a spy gathering loads of intel and gaining hidden money wired to your bank account thanks to the many possibilities of winning cash rewards within the slots. The option to use a cryptocurrency also adds to the game’s mystique.

2. Platinum Lightning by SoftSwiss

This bitcoin-enabled slots game is another SoftSwiss hit and is called Platinum Lightning. This esoterically themed yet casual-friendly virtual slot machine game is a 5-reel, 3-row, and 25-payline game. In terms of reward opportunities, the game includes gambling rounds, a wild symbol, and loads of bonuses. It has a 96.29 percent RTP rate.

Instead of an Ancient Egypt theme a la the Book of Pyramids, Platinum Lightning has an Ancient Greek Mythology (also Roman Mythology) theme this time around, with a dash of Norse and Scandinavian Mythologies thrown into the mix. This has resulted in a hodgepodge of gods and events, like Thor going face-to-face against Hercules (or Heracles) as well as Zeus (or Jupiter) dealing with Ragnarok and the Titans side-by-side with the All-Father himself, Odin. Gameplay-wise, Platinum Lightning also has a lot going for it, from reels filled with mythological creatures like the Minotaur serving as the bonus symbol to Zeus Lightning serving as the Scatter of the game, which you can win if you have 3 or more of the lightning symbol anywhere on the reels. The Wild symbol is the ship that substitutes all symbols in the slots except for the Scatter symbol. To set your bets, click on the 3 lines to open the betting panel.

1. Satoshi’s Secret by Endorphina

Last on our list of best online slots that you can play with bitcoin is Satoshi’s Secret by Endorphina. Satoshi’s Secret is a 6-reel, 3-row, and 20-payline video slots game that’s both mobile-friendly and Bitcoin-friendly. It is currently one of the most popular Bitcoin slots available because of its meta-fictional theme. In terms of its rewards system, it includes gambling rounds, wild symbols, and quite a number of bonuses. It also offers a flat 96 percent RTP rate.

Even though it has the lowest RTP rate among the games featured on this list, it remains immensely popular because it’s thematically about hacking and literally about bitcoins. It offers symbols and icons like the bitcoin sign, letters of the alphabet, and even the symbol for the hacker character himself. Satoshi’s Secret is apparently about hacking for bitcoin, almost to the point that the slots game appears like an advertisement for the cryptocurrency. Its highest paying symbols include the hacker, the pound currency symbol, the euro currency symbol and the dollar currency symbol.

Its plot involves hackers hacking, social engineering, and phishing for the infamous virtual coin. You can choose between coin sizes and set the number of coins per line. It has a Wilds symbol in the form of a chip that has the word “Wild” written on it and it can substitute for all symbols save for the Bonus Bitcoin Padlock symbol. Bitcoin is already used widely in many online casinos and has quickly become a primary funding method at many. Adoption seems to be accelerating, and not just for Bitcoin, but numerous other crypto currencies like Bitcoin Cash and Litecoin as well.

Ethereum vs Tron — Which Platform Has Better Future?

Ethereum vs Tron — Which Platform Has Better Future?

After Bitcoin introduced blockchain technology (or at least popularised it),

many brilliant minds of this world started exploring it since it displayed great potential. In fact, blockchain was so interesting as a concept that it prompted the creation of numerous projects, Ethereum being the most prominent one. However, Ethereum is not alone in the crypto world — it now has a serious competitor that, according to some enthusiasts, has the potential to overtake Ethereum in the race of making the world more decentralised. This project is called Tron. Unlike Ethereum, a general decentralised platform for making any kind of dapps, Tron tries to stay within the ‘digital content platform’ boundaries, although it seems that there are no substantial differences between the two.

The Next Big Tech Giants?

The competition between Ethereum and Tron is close to emerging into a full-scale rivalry as the popularity of decentralised application grows. For developers, this is a matter of utmost importance, as many professionals predict the battle of Ethereum vs Tron could be the next Microsoft vs Apple. But developers are not the only people interested in these two projects. Investors from all around the globe, both big and small, are looking for opportunities to make a profit, and some already have with Ethereum. However, with a new and potent project coming to the crypto world, investors might change their strategies a bit.

Ethereum Leads the Way

Although Tron is working actively on promoting the platform, its popularity is still way behind that of Ethereum. In order to compare the influence of these two companies, we have to make a short comparison of their coins. Ethereum’s Ether (ETH) is currently the second most popular cryptocurrency after Bitcoin. The current market cap is more than $14.5 billion at the moment. On the other hand, Tron’s investors have amassed almost one billion. Therefore, it’s safe to say that the current market cap size is definitely a huge advantage for Ethereum. Yet, Tron’s popularity has skyrocketed recently for various reasons, including some interesting projects based on this platform. Although it cannot compete with ETH at this moment, there’s one thing that gives Tron a huge advantage — it’s from China and can potentially have a huge market with more than one billion people.

So Which Platform Has a Better Future?

At this point, it’s impossible to tell which platform will win the race — if it’s a race in the first place. The most likely scenario is that both platforms are going to have substantial user bases and co-exist. However, the crypto industry, as well as blockchain technology, is still young, and there’s no way to predict what could happen in the future. Who knows, perhaps some other similar platform will shift the focus away from Ethereum and Tron.

Both Vitalik Buterin, the creator of Ethereum, and Justin Sun, Tron’s founding father, are doing a great job at upgrading and promoting their respective platforms. What’s even more astonishing is that both are very young. Sun is 29 and Buterin is only 25. In fact, the Russian-born Canadian programmer was only 21 when he started the Ethereum project. Both are brilliant minds with an exceptional feel for tech innovations, and they don’t lack marketing skills either. However, their leadership skills are what makes them real rock stars, and they are definitely going to be here for a while, although Sun will have to do his best to reach the popularity of Ethereum.

The Choice Is Not Binary for Investors

As the battle between Ethereum and Tron continues, many investors are looking for other alternatives along the way — altcoins that have been doing pretty well lately. Therefore, if you’re not certain about whether to pick ETH or TRX, you should research other possible options too. One of the cryptocurrencies that has gained a lot of attention lately due to its unique properties is Ripple (XRP). This full intro to Ripple coin explains how this crypto works and talks about its advantages compared to other cryptocurrencies.

Apart from XRP, many crypto traders are following the latest news about cryptos such as Tether, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, and others. Therefore, choosing between Ethereum and Tron should be a task for developers who are looking to develop decentralised applications, whereas crypto traders and investors can broaden the scope of their potential investments by considering other cryptos.

Markethive Hive Ranking System Rewarding Your Efforts – Increases Your Earnings

Markethive Hive Ranking System
Rewarding Your Efforts – Increases Your Earnings

The Hive Rank – What is it? 

Markethive’s Hive Rank algorithmically calculates and scores your activity and the interactivity you receive on your productivity you accomplish within the Markethive system.

The system tracks your engagements which include activities such as commenting on posts, friending and following people, subscribing to members’ blogs, messaging, joining groups, tipping and all other basic good practices that will have a positive effect on your hive rank score. It will increase and in doing so, increase your earnings. 

This also includes productivity like creating or swiping blogs, posting, creating capture pages, capture widgets, setting up autoresponders, creating groups, etc. All of this activity assigns predetermined and various calculated values that determine your score on any given day. These values do have a half-life which means depending on your activity, they will diminish which causes your score to fluctuate. In other words, your Hive Rank points expire and constant activity helps to keep your total score at a maximum.

Scores can reach into the thousands, depending on how consistently active you are on the platform, and the reciprocity achieved,  along with your utilization of the inbound marketing tools at your disposal and marketing efforts. High scores can also increase your micropayment faucet earnings, Infinity Bounty rewards, achieving Super Status and becoming qualified to achieve the coveted “Royal Bee of the Day”. 

Super Status – Royal Bee Of The Day (This is currently in development.)

Royal Bee which is Level 6 on the hive rank score is the highest one can achieve. The trick is to stay there. One of the benefits is you will be given the accolade of “Royal Bee For The Day” that will be on display for all to see.  This achievement can only be acquired once every 30 days. 

While you reign in this esteemed position for the day, you will receive all the new signups into Markethive for that day produced by the Markethive Marketing Department. That means as an Entrepreneur Upgrade, you will also receive the 500 coin matching bonus for each verified registration of all signups. Plus your micropayments faucet earnings will also be increased for any activity performed.  

What About Free Members?

Those who are a free member can still achieve the status of Royal Bee For The Day. This will put you in Entrepreneur Upgrade status for the day and you’ll receive the same rewards accordingly. 

Note: As a rule of thumb, you do not receive the matching bonus, as a free member, however, the associates you acquire through the system will be held for you as your associates and if you decide to upgrade within the first 30 day period you will be paid a 100% of the matching bonus of 500 coins. 


What steps Do You Need To Take To Activate The Hive Rank?

Whether you are a free member or an Entrepreneur Upgrade, to activate the Hive Ranking system you must have at least three referrals registered in Markethive through you. This includes verification of their phone number upon joining. If they don’t complete the verification process, then technically they have not joined Markethive. 

The Key 

It’s not just what you do within the Markethive Platform, your Hive Rank is also driven up by the engagement you receive when you post or market your blogs and/or capture pages. If your content gets a response and a lot of traffic coming to your site that also increases your hive rank. 

For example, when you create a capture page and promote anywhere on the internet, that capture page will, in turn, drive your Hive Rank numbers up.  So it’s not just what you do within Markethive, your hive ranking score increases due to the results of what you do. 

The key is to be active and consistent with all that Markethive offers to achieve these generous rewards which can only increase your universal income within the Markethive Ecosystem. 

Gamified But Cannot Be Gamed

Gamification makes it fun, exciting and competitive and above all increase your earning potential. Notably, there are limits to certain activities. For example, you can’t produce 10 blogs with one line of content on any given day just for the sake of increasing your score. You can create as many blogs as you like, however, your Hive Rank score will not reflect your activity in that case. 

So, in essence, the system cannot be gamed. Not even the creators of the algorithm can game or manipulate the system. 

Remember, some activities are time-limited so your hive ranking can drop but will rise after performing those tasks again. Eg: Logging in to Markethive daily. Alternatively, if you are blocked by a member, this can negatively impact your score for a time. The various categories included in the Hive Rank system can be found under settings and has 41 active categories at this stage.

Like a credit score of your activity and actions, the Markethive system monitors actions you conduct and rates them into an algorithm to display a rank level commensurate with your activity, engagement, and behavior. 


Markethive Is Built For You

Markethive has got you covered with an excellent gamification system that produces real income. It also enhances the building of your business with Markethive services and makes it fun and rewarding! There are many other platforms that are gamified, however, it is all in-house. You are rewarded with points or credits only. This only allows you to use those credits within that certain platform for advertising your brand, which otherwise would cost you money to do so. 

Markethive being the complete ecosystem built on the Blockchain, with its own Crypto Exchange, the Vault, mining hives, (in development), Markethive Cryptocurrency Coin (MHV), and products for sustainability will provide you with universal income with ease of liquidity to use that income. 

The Hive Rank is responsible for bonuses, bounties, and increases in revenue and plays a big part in the interest you earn in the upcoming Vault. Currently, in development, the Vault will replace the current payment center with a far more effective and rewarding system. It’s like having your own bank account within the Markethive ecosystem! The higher your Hive Rank the more interest paid to you. The Markethive Vault is unique and will be ready along with the Markethive Wallet. More about this in upcoming articles. 

Stay informed on all the developments of the Markethive Ecosystem by attending the weekly webinar on Sundays at 10 am Mountain Time. The link to join us at that time can be found in the Calendar in the blue navigation bar at the top of your Markethive home Page. Need to know what time it is in your country? Go here… 

It is important to note Markethive is not an MLM or affiliate company, it is a referral company. So free members can benefit greatly by just referring 3 people which will activate the faucet or micropayments and Hive Rank. That means you don’t have to spend any money within the system. Simply build it and get rewarded.  


Markethive is the next generation of all things social media and marketing. So “GET ACTIVE!” and conduct your business and online activities with a system that truly rewards you so that you may have the success and create wealth that will surpass any other social media platform out there today.
