BitAngels Converts its Blockchain Events Into an Online Format

BitAngels Converts its Blockchain Events Into an Online Format

crypto conference

Most global events around the globe have now been canceled due to the novel coronavirus crisis.

BitAngels is shifting its attention to virtual events in an effort to engage the blockchain community as a whole. Now is the time to cancel all physical events and transition to an online-oriented solution.

A Smart Approach by BitAngels

Several companies and organizers have already made that decision in recent weeks. BitAngels is one of the more recent firms to explore this particular option. Its focus lies on connecting global blockchain enthusiasts in a meaningful manner. By organizing several virtual events, like-minded individuals can still come together to exchange ideas and promote projects. Considering how BitAngels’ network spans 15 chapters across different countries, this option can be very interesting to explore.

More and more countries are entering full lockdown mode due to the novel coronavirus crisis. Events are shifting to online versions, and a lot of employees now fully embrace teleworking as well. BitAngels Virtual Events will be hosted in the same way was regular events, but in an online environment. A maximum of 5 companies will present during each event, following by a panel or keynote speech. Anyone in the world can access these events, whereas investor members can benefit from on-demand recordings.

Santander and Ripple Launching Blockchain-Powered Payment Service in Mexico

Santander and Ripple Launching Blockchain-Powered Payment Service in Mexico

Santander, the 16th largest bank in the world with $1.74 trillion assets under management,

is planning to launch its Ripple-powered payments app One Pay FX in Mexico this year. The blockchain-based international payment solution, which went live in 2018, has already added six countries: Spain, the United Kingdom, Brazil, Poland, Portugal and Chile.

According to a filing submitted to the US Securities and Exchange Commission, Santander’s multi-corridor international blockchain app aims to offer customers increased transparency and predictability, and improve “the current sub-optimal customer experience and client stickiness through a best-in-class global payment system.” Traditional borderless payments can take up to five days to process. One Pay FX says its users can expect their payments to arrive on the same day while benefiting from competitive rates.

The app also provides a seamless digital experience with several details about each transaction including bank fees, exchange rates, estimated delivery time and a notification that the money has been received. One Pay FX uses Ripple’s payment messaging system, as opposed to Ripple’s native token XRP, to move money between currencies. The tech product, which is a competitor to the international financial network Swift, helps banks settle fiat-to-fiat transactions in real time by using messaging to clarify and verify transaction details.

The Banner Program

The Banner Program is predominantly for advertising any other independent business or Markethive’s special offers to members on the Markethive platform and not to be confused with the Markethive Banners explained above. 

These banners are displayed at the top of Markethive’s pages internally and also on the complete Markethive Network which includes the many websites Markethive owns. This is Prime real estate and means your banners are not just viewed by members within Markethive, but also to the vast internet traffic and onlookers. 

At present, there is one banner size of 960×80 accepted on this platform and unlike the Markethive Banners, which are accepted on other advertising sites, they must be on a white background whether they are animated or static. Research shows this to be very appealing to the onlooker and sets a high professional standard for the Markethive Platform. They must fit visually with the rest of the content.

These banners are not predesigned for you. You must either create the banner or appoint someone to create it for you. If you would like to design one, here are two sites you can utilize;

The King of Blockchains, Bitcoin Can Become the Foundation for Web 3.0

The King of Blockchains, Bitcoin Can Become the Foundation for Web 3.0

bitcoin web 3.0

Bitcoin remains the undisputed “king” of blockchains.

Bitcoin’s dominance has increased significantly since the experimental times of 2017. Bitcoin has survived many attempted forks and “civil wars” and has established itself as the reserve cryptocurrency; people fall back to Bitcoin in bear markets. The production network has stood the test of time for over 10 years now. However, the crypto industry has dismissed Bitcoin when it comes to smart contracts or Web 3.0. I believe this is going to change.

It’s true that Bitcoin cannot do everything. Bitcoin is secure because it has a limited scripting language. Bitcoin is reliable and durable because it doesn’t change. This does not mean that the developer ecosystem around Bitcoin cannot innovate and enable support for Web 3.0. As the crypto industry makes progress toward Web 3.0, we’ll come to realize that it’s hard to beat the security and network effects of Bitcoin. Despite several initiatives by potential competitors, the hashrate of the Bitcoin network and the security offered by its proof-of-work (PoW) mining remain unparalleled to this day. For years, new cryptocurrencies have attempted to launch their own native PoW networks; none has approached Bitcoin’s success.

Bitcoin has network effects. Most people are introduced to cryptocurrencies through Bitcoin. If something can be done on top of Bitcoin, it will eventually get done on top of Bitcoin rather than a smaller ecosystem. Network effects make Bitcoin’s success self-reinforcing: Miners see that the network is established, that the community is strong and that the currency is the “hardest” money in the crypto space. Miners join or expand their commitment, increasing hashpower and network reliability; their entry inspires still more holders and businesses, increasing community support. The cycle goes on.

Smart Contracts on Bitcoin

Despite the success of Bitcoin, critics who question Bitcoin’s capacity for innovation have some valid points. There are aspects of Bitcoin that frustrate developers who wish to explore the world of smart contracts and decentralized apps. Many projects have created their own blockchains because they perceive Bitcoin’s scripting limitations as a dealbreaker. They cannot deny the original chain’s security, but they also wish they could write more expressive smart contracts. New blockchains find themselves struggling with poor, native PoW security, and often attempt jumps to proof of stake (PoS) or delegated PoS setups which may be less secure and tend toward centralization.

As a result, several crypto projects have concluded that they must pick their poison: They must either attempt to bootstrap a native PoW chain or else establish a PoS chain, with all of the tradeoffs that entails. But these are not the only options. There is a different path available: Smart contract platforms can employ Bitcoin’s PoW security to safeguard new blockchains. New protocols can anchor to the security of Bitcoin and extend Bitcoin’s utility. Transactions that settle on Bitcoin are harder to reorganize than they are on any other network. This is an under-explored design space but one which is beginning to change. 

The Bitcoin blockchain already has security derived from its energy expenditure and this security may be passed on to the interconnected chain by using concepts like proof-of-transfer (PoX). It’s important to recognize that interconnected chains differ from traditional sidechains; interconnected chains create their own crypto assets, but they utilize the Bitcoin chain for broadcasting mining operations and consensus steps. An interconnected chain anchored to Bitcoin is a win-win proposition for all parties as the new blockchain benefits from the reliability, and longevity of Bitcoin while providing freedom and flexibility to developers working with the interconnected chain.

The Bitcoin blockchain can also reap benefits, acquiring new and powerful use cases. These can attract new miners and new network participants, further solidifying Bitcoin’s place as the reserve cryptocurrency. Smart contract platforms, and I include my own project, Blockstack, in this, understand how powerful on-chain contracts can be. But just as you don’t need to build all new roads to drive new cars, there’s no need to reinvent PoW or PoS chains to employ robust smart contracts or to launch new blockchains. The solid foundation we need to realize our vision for Web 3.0 is already here; a future Web 3.0 can anchor on Bitcoin.

Covid-19 Takes Its Toll While Markethive Thrives

Covid-19 Takes Its Toll While Markethive Thrives

As the situation worsens with the Coronavirus on a global scale, we are promised unprecedented financial aid by governments, not to the big banks as was carried out in the GFC of 2008, but to the individuals of the population in many countries in order to stimulate the economy. President Trump announced a $1,200+ payout to each US citizen to help at this time of crisis. Other countries have pledged similar as a helping hand to individuals and communities to lessen the blow of financial hardship.

 Further handouts have been proposed in the coming months as authorities speculate there is no quick fix to this pandemic that has financially hit and devastated small businesses, the entertainment industry, hospitality, travel industry, and sporting codes and clubs, and the people who are either employed or use the services. The whole world is virtually in lockdown bringing devastating effects to the world economy. 

 

Uncertainty And Contingencies 

The W.H.O and “powers that be” confess they have never experienced anything like this. This is something very new and the dichotomy being although we are urged to isolate, now mandatory in many countries, the world is uniting on a virtual level to beat this critical situation. Some brick and mortar businesses may never recover and there’s an urgency to conduct their businesses solely online with logistics and delivery services being revamped to accommodate this new way of living.  

Rest assured we will see an end to this present catastrophic state of affairs, however, the world and how we do business will change. I like to think this is for the greater good and with the advancing technology, we have today with Blockchain, cryptocurrency and quantum computers that have the capacity to connect in every part of the world bring a more self-sovereign way of life, with the freedom and financial independence we all deserve. Markethive is the only company to date with this vision and Plan to integrate this monumental undertaking. 

 

Markethive Thrives Amid The Covid-19 Devastation

As the offline business world comes to a stand-still or collapses, Markethive thrives. Entrepreneurs know this is where we are heading. The only platform that offers every individual self-sovereignty with the opportunity to capitalize on the many different services and products Markethive is rolling out. Entrepreneur One will include every reseller program starting with the Banner Impressions Exchange, then the Press Release Exchange, The Boost Advertising, Video Advertising, in fact, every aspect of Markethive will be available to the Entrepreneur One Upgrades to run as their own businesses within Markethive. 

Markethive will not be selling those services to Markethivers. Only Entrepreneur One Associates will be able to sell them. Markethive only requires the $100 per month subscription from you. You are then allocated your portion of banner impressions, press releases, etc, to resell them to the Markethive community of which there will be millions. Keep in mind the number of E1 Upgrades is capped at 500.

This is on top of the 1/10th ILP (Incentivized Loan Program) you receive after 12 consecutive payments of your Entreprepreneur One Loyalty Program. This continues to accrue every year you are current, up to 10 years. This in itself will bring you huge dividends as the limit of ILPs is 1000.

    

In a recent interview, CEO of Markethive, Thomas Prendergast says,

“This is truly a god-given, spiritual concept that is brilliant, to create an entry-level program of $100 per month. As we expand Markethive Entrepreneurs become an authority to conduct their individual businesses and capitalize on the Markethive products and services. I, as the CEO of the company, is an Entrepreneur One upgrade just like the others and just join in with what they are doing and let Markethive be that foundation of equality. It’s a concept I don’t think anyone has even considered before.” 

 

With the advent of the stimulus package, the governments are doling out to every individual, the likelihood that the 500 Entrepreneur One Upgrades will be maxed out sooner than first expected as many Markethivers will make good use of the money by investing in their own future and financial security by upgrading to Entrepreneur One Level. So the Entrepreneur Two Loyalty Program is currently in the works which do not include the Banner Exchange or the 1/10th ILP. More about that in this article…

https://markethive.com/group/marketingdept/blog/markethiveloyaltyprogramsyoudontjustsavemoneyyoumakemoney  

Markethive – A Force To Be Reckoned With

Our Alexa rank currently at 5,146 puts us in the top .0001% of the billions of websites on the internet. Markethive is in the cream of the crop of the most visited and active sites. Markethive is exponentially growing as people who join see the good it’s doing for the individual and opportunities it is creating, open to everyone. So we will expand into the millions, just like LinkedIn. 

But even as it stands now, Markethive is receiving more than 60 million page views per month! This is increasing daily. What does that mean for the Banner Impression Resellers?  Popular websites are selling impressions for up to $0.10 cents. But let’s just do the math and sell them for a penny, ($0.01 cent). The allocated amount of impressions for each Entrepreneur One will generate an income of $1,200 and of course, you can expect that to increase on a monthly basis. 

Once we have the Press Release Reseller program in place you’ll be able to sell Press Releases for $10,000 each. This is what digital news sites with an Alexa ranking doubling Markethive are selling for. The following on the various social media platforms also plays an important role. Markethive is also exponentially growing there too with a following into the 10s of thousands. The only way is up now.  

Entrepreneur upgrades will be given a set amount of press release slots each month to on-sell to anyone who wants to publish their story. As an Entrepreneur Upgrade, you will also be able to buy more should you need them from Markethive at a fraction of the cost you would sell them for.

Thomas Prendergast explains,

“The reason we’re doing this is so that you as the individual have all of these cottage industries so you can make money, You don’t have to go recruit anybody. This is not MLM or affiliate marketing, it’s a referral business which completely works differently and instead of us taking all the money from the banner impressions, press releases, etc, you are responsible for using the system, that’s why we give it away.”

He goes on to say, 

“There is a spirituality to this, I was given the instructions and the blueprints intuitively to build the system as powerful as this and to give it all away. Where I can make my money is selling the services Markethive represents, like banner advertising, press releases, broadcasting, etc. So designing it so that you get your share of our traffic, which you are responsible for helping us build, you pay us a flat rate by way of the Entrepreneur Loyalty Program and you sell Markehive’s services thereby making you a cottage industry, not an affiliate, not Multi-level marketing, and now not even a referral. This is a completely different animal which can literally mean a significant income for the rest of your life!” 

 

The ILP is another income stream, which as we move forward and introduce the Apprentice and Journeyman programs which are upgrades similar to LinkedIn, for prices similar to LinkedIn. Members will have a big advantage in Markethive for as little as $20 per month that millions of people will subscribe to as they see the benefits that Markethive offers.   

 


     

Markethive Projections – Realistic And Viable

Statistics show that 39% of LinkedIn users have upgraded to one of their paid memberships. They have just tipped 500 million members. So let’s be conservative and project only 20% of 10 million Markethive members which equates to 2 million upgrades to the Apprentice Membership at $20 per month = $40 million. 20% of $40 million for the ILP holders = $8 million, divided by 1000, (the maximum amount of ILPs) = $8,000 per month, per ILP. This equates to $800 per month for a 1/10th ILP.
   
As Thomas passionately states,

Do you guys not get this? This is legitimate! I know that you have probably never dealt with this before and someone being so generous. What’s wrong with being generous? There is nothing wrong with being generous! It’s not found very often in the world but those of you that know me, I’ve been doing this for over 20 years and this is what drives me! 

I am not a materialistic person, I do not have greed in my blood. I have decided if I’m going to be a success, you’re going to be a success. I will not build my success on the backs of your failures. I am going to build my success arm in arm with your success. I really hope that makes sense?”    

A Wrecking Ball

Just as President Trump is seen as a political wrecking ball in the eyes of some, as he tends to defy the political norm, it can be argued that he is not left or right, he’s an entrepreneur and a president for the people, the little guy. So too does Thomas Prendergast shine in a similar light, a mini wrecking ball, with a mandate to bring down and crush the ethos and inequality of MLM and replace it with a legitimate system where every single person succeeds.

Markethive has been in Beta for nearly 5 years, but here is the good news about it taking so long to build. It is very unlikely that a company will try to copy what Markethive has or is doing. Markethive is a massively huge project of all linear platforms along with its own financial ecosystem. As we gain more revenue with the first tipping point of 500 Entrepreneur One Upgrades, we accelerate a lot faster, the more traffic we have, the more services we can deliver along with the planned money-making machines exclusive to the Entrepreneur Loyalty programs. This just leverages the complete system to grow even faster and become more profitable for everyone. 

 

Markethive Is A GrassRoots Company

As Thomas says, we are grass-roots. Think of it as virtually impossible to put a fire out that is burning on 400 million acres at the same time. So once it gets going it consumes everything and that’s what Markethive is. Not just one person making trillions of dollars and the rest make nothing or lose, everyone has the opportunity to make money. Of course, the Entrepreneur Loyalty upgrades and who have invested in the ILPs stand to make a considerable income, plus members who are more active and using the system will definitely make more than someone who sits idle hoarding their 500 MHV they received upon joining Markethive. What you sow, so shall you reap. 

We are very close to launching our wallet and when we do, the number of coins given away as airdrops will be reduced because there will be a real need for it. The MHV coin becomes fungible, more valuable as the ecosystem’s viability and velocity increases. If you’re a marketer and want to take advantage of the huge traffic and exposure the Markethive platform offers, but not an Entrepreneur One, you will need and want the MHV to pay for its banner impressions and digital media services available from Markethive’s Entrepreneur One Associates. There will literally be millions of prospects coming into the system who are looking for what you are selling. 

In Closing

To sum it all up, although this invisible war has almost stopped the world in its tracks with millions of employees and businesses feeling the blow economically likened to the great depression of 1929, the online world of business and social media is sitting pretty as its the only way to communicate and transact while we are all isolating. 

Markethive is the one place where real earning capacity is alive and well right now and for the long term future for all. Right now we accumulate MHV, ready for the exchange and wallet to come into effect. The Entrepreneur One Loyalty Program is the whale that will take you to the next level giving you the ability to make an incredible income. 

This is perfect for the non-recruiter as your customers are already there as part of the Markethive community. It is also perfect for those who would rather just invest and reap the rewards of the interest payments with the Incentivized Loan Program (ILP). This in itself will provide a significant income. 

This is the genesis of a new world. The Coronavirus war will end one day, but the world will not return to the way we know it. Now more than ever we will be relying on technology and Web 3.0, so the safest and logical way to go to achieve financial freedom, peace of mind and self-sovereignty is online with a Blockchain driven Market Network that was divinely-inspired and will withstand and survive the perils the world is now facing. 

Remember, the ILPs are capped at 1000 and the Entrepreneur One Upgrade is limited to 500. There are a few left. What will you do with your Covid-19 Aid Package? 

Become an Entrepreneur One Reseller today and be the owner of your Cottage Industry Turnkey system at Markethive… https://markethive.com/upgrademe

Entrepreneur One Upgrade. A Reciprocal Blessing. It Works Both Ways!

Entrepreneur One Upgrade. A Reciprocal Blessing. It Works Both Ways!

A Path To Self-Sovereignty. The Solution To Oppression.   

Markethive is here and brings a whole new level to empower people.  Markethive is truly a blessing and a vision to bless Entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs are the lifeblood of liberty and freedom, liberty and freedom is a gift from God, so Markethive is a vision God is using to bless people. Unlike all other platforms where you pay to use the linear systems to fulfill your marketing goals and business outcomes, Markethive’s inbound marketing platform is free to use, along with the collaboration and social connections found on the Markethive social media platform. In today’s online world this is a blessing and unrivaled by any other platform out there today. 

Not only does Markethive give this platform for free but the system pays you in MHV coin to use it. (Just refer 3 people to activate the Micropayment Faucet System) This means as a free member you can earn and accumulate MHV coins to buy services, products, banner impressions, in fact, anything on the Markethive platform once these systems are up and running. You will even be able to convert MHV to your currency once the exchange, wallet, and KYC are implemented. 

 

A comparison to just one of the linear inbound marketing platforms 

 

To take it one step further, the ILP is designed to bless you back. Most have found and perceived it to be impossible to succeed online. It’s too expensive for them and the scams are unrelenting, merciless and soul-destroying. Instead of a select few investing millions of dollars to develop Markethive’s unique all-encompassing platform, the ILP along with the Entrepreneur Loyalty programs are designed to bless you, the people, with self-sovereignty and financial stability for your lifetime and legacy. 

 

A Divinely Blessed Opportunity And Prophecy

To give the Marketive System to you for free is a vision from God, but as CEO Thomas Prendergast says, we need to make money to further our cause, hence the ILP and Entrepreneur Upgrade was born. 

Instead of turning the site into a banner advertising clickbait freak show to earn revenue or reach out to venture capitalists, Markethive is reaching out to members to upgrade to Entrepreneur One, giving a divinely blessed opportunity to secure your financial future by way of Markethive’s revenue in the form of ILP shares, plus the advantage of multiple streams of income from Markethive’s ecosystem of products and services. This, in turn, blesses you as you have blessed Markethive with your subscriptions. 
 
CEO of Markethive, Thomas Prendergast explained at our last weekly webinar,

“By blessing us with your contributions in the form of purchasing an ILP or upgrading to Entrepreneur One, you will get it back tenfold, a hundredfold, a thousandfold. That’s how the ILP and Entrepreneur One operates. 

As we enter into this new phase of prophecy, I fully expect your blessings will increase tremendously. Right now we need more Entrepreneur One and ILP subscriptions to get to that magic number of 500. Once we reach that number, we will be moving forward a thousand times faster than we are right now.

At the moment we have competent growth with our Alexa ranking which are confirmed by our internal numbers, and we haven’t really even scratched the surface yet! We are destined to become a humongous force.”  

 

Some would view this as incredulous, and I know many of you find it hard to accept that something like this could even be possible, in a world where many have been consistently ripped off by Ponzi schemes. It just takes one empath with a vision and a humanitarian heart followed by a like-minded community to bring a more sovereign environment and one of equality and opportunity into reality like Markethive. The technology that Markethive has, including the Blockchain, also made this model very real and doable.  

The New Normal

Times are changing rapidly given the recent events and afflictions bestowed upon us on a global scale. Businesses in every field are sending key employees home to work in the seclusion of their homes at this time of crisis. Many are being stood down or losing their jobs. I’m of the opinion that the way corporations were built and facilitated is becoming a thing of the past along with the greed that consumes people. We are in a new era where the unjust will slowly but ultimately collapse. Divine intervention? I believe so. 

People, families, and communities are isolating or cocooning for many reasons and we are heading for a more decentralized world off and online. We will order our groceries online to be delivered to our door by drones for example. This will fundamentally be accepted and enjoyed as the convenience and individual sovereignty will be paramount and the lifestyle we will come to know as normal.  

This will attract many people to build businesses entirely online and this is what Markethive is all about. Markethive is that system that is all-encompassing to deliver all aspects a business needs to grow and flourish, with eCommerce, API connections to aligned companies, inbound marketing tools, social media, digital media distribution, etc.  

At the moment, the fear of the unknown territory continues to plague individuals and communities, but one thing we know for sure is that working online from home with an escalating number of Entrepreneurs has been considered to be the way of the future. That future has arrived and is here and now with Markethive leading the way for everyone to achieve financial sovereignty.  

Multiple Streams Of Income

Entrepreneurs know that diversity is key to long-standing financial security and Markethive is architecturally designed to give all associates the unprecedented opportunity to derive multiple streams of income, all under one roof, whether it be using the Markethive platform to promote and facilitate your personal business via storefronts or just taking advantage of the many individual enterprising and income-producing systems like the 

Press Release and Sponsored Articles. Where you will be able to sell your allocated Press Release or sponsored article publication spaces, which is a lucrative income if you consider the statistics shown in this article  

Video Advertising.  A video ad portal will be similar to the banner portal. More on this in upcoming articles.

The ILP investments that will distribute 20% of the net profit of Markethive as interest. Explained in detail here. It’s like owning a piece of Markethive. It’s not about the bottom line for Markethive, it’s about you, the member, the rank and file. You are a virtual owner of Markethive, it’s your company where you receive very valuable tools and considerable returns from the ILP. This is on track to commence revenue payments this year and will grow as Markethive grow.

Banner Exchange (not to be confused with the traditional banner exchange), but more like a Banner Slot Reseller Shop, where you can sell your impressions to any member of Markethive requiring exposure on Markethive’s expansive reach across the internet. This will work similarly to a coin exchange and the launch of this prodigious system is just around the corner.

– and much more as they roll out

The Entrepreneur One Loyalty Program is a cottage industry turnkey system that includes many powerful income-producing mini businesses, like the Banner Exchange or Impression Reseller System.

 

Let’s Talk About The Banner Impression Reseller System. 

The First Cab Off The Rank

The whole concept behind the Banner Exchange system which is essentially a banner impressions resale system giving the opportunity for Entrepreneur One upgrades to sell their Banner Slots and impressions for a price on the exchange. This is potentially very lucrative and a separate income from the ILP shared interest paid to you or any other portal in which you can profit from once integrated into the Markethive system. There will only be a maximum of 500 Entrepreneur One Associates that can take advantage of this.

Markethive’s Alexa ranking now at 5,322 and continually improving daily makes Markethive a force with over 400,000 unique visitors a day and heading towards 100 million page views per month and growing exponentially.  

When we reach 2,500 in our Alexa rank which is very likely to be sooner than later, Markethive will have reached an estimated 287 million page views per month. The higher ranked websites and the position of the banner increase the cost of impressions. (ie: higher ranking being lower on Alexa. The highest rank is No. 1.)  

Just as an exampleDivide 287 million impressions by the maximum number of Entrepreneur One Associates of 500 = 574,000 impressions each per month. 574,000 x $0.001 = $574 per month that you’ll receive for only a $100 per month Entrepreneur One subscription. 

This is a very conservative figure. The price of an impression will, of course, be much higher, along with the ever-increasing number of impressions assigned to you each month.

 

Where Are The Banners Displayed? 

The Header banner is Prime real estate. It’s on the top position of every page in Markethive .com and .net as well as many other domains. Only 500 Entrepreneurs will have control of the most expensive piece of Real Estate and your timeshare is 1/500th of that in a system that delivers impressions on your banners per month literally into the millions.

 

In this video, Thomas explains how it is nothing like the traditional Banner Exchanges out there today, how it is unique and how important and lucrative banner advertising is. 

A Self-Fulfilling Prophecy

Apart from Markethive’s vision and prophecy, by upgrading to the Entrepreneur One for $100 per month creates a self-fulfilling prophecy of prosperity and abundance. Once we hit 500 E1s, there’s no real need to sell anymore ILPs. We will have reached that tipping point where we can complete the necessary objectives to be able to go to the next level and drive into the 100 million members. 

We get to just 1 million with a 20% conversion into the upcoming $20 entry-level  Apprentice Program, (similar to Linkedin), we are now looking at millions of dollars per month into the Markethive system which is totally debt-free. This also ensures a more lucrative monthly return for you on your ILPs. 

As we grow we will be able to expand into the mining hives, build a huge distributed database using Quantum computers situated in 1000 different places on every continent and country in the world, which work in conjunction with our wallets of which we will have billions of. Markethive with its blockchain is fulfilling what the blockchain was designated to do. A totally decentralized, distributed network that will be unstoppable and untouchable!

Markethive will continuously add more powerful marketing services to increase your business which creates an ever-increasing need for the Markethive coin MHV as this is the only currency Markethivers will use to purchase the products and services that compliments Markethive marketing tools that are given to you for free.  This, in turn, creates velocity and drives up the price of MHV. A complete and alive ecosystem that is fungible and liquid. 

 

Why is Markethive doing this? 

It’s the vision, the mandate to spread the wealth with as many who are willing to be part of this. Even free members have the chance to earn money just by being here and using Markethive’s free tools. No more venture capitalists and fat cats raking in the profits while you, your data and hard work are sold for their profit. 

You bless Markethive by upgrading to Entrepreneur One now and you will be blessed a thousandfold. This is your company, online business, and your home. While it lasts, you are welcome to purchase multiple Entrepreneur One subscriptions which of course multiplies your income accordingly. 

There is no requirement for you to continually recruit people into Markethive, just upgrade to the Entrepreneur One Loyalty program, stay active and current with your payment and watch Markethive take off at warp speed securing your share of Markethive and the exponential growth of your income and legacy. 

Note: To activate the Micropayment Faucet System you only need to refer 3 people. You are then free and clear to concentrate on your own business or passion which you can share on the Markethive platform that delivers incredible reach outside of the Markethive ecosystem thanks to its proprietary technology.  

 

As Thomas Prendergast says,

“When you understand what we have done for you with the Entrepreneur One loyalty program you will grab as many you can afford. Folks, I have been involved in the MLM industry for over 20 years and frankly, I came to the realization MLM does not work for 95% of the people. I built Markethive to change all that and give all of you a system that works for the average entrepreneur. Time is running out and these memberships will be sought after down the road for huge prices. Markethive is in this for your benefit and the long run. What do you think?”

 

Secure your future with the new normal.

Markethive is not MLM, but a Market Network which is a combination of Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube, Amazon, eBay, Marketo, Hubspot, Cointelegraph digital news site, Coin Exchange, Steemit among other linear platforms.

How Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain Are Powering Artisanal Small Gold Miners

How Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain Are Powering Artisanal Small Gold Miners

The rise of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technologies has opened up extraordinary possibilities that were not available before.

Specifically, by shining a light on a sector that holds tremendous promise yet has been hugely neglected – artisanal and small-scale gold mining (ASGM). Leading the charge for the next generation of fintech innovators is GoldFinX, a breakthrough platform focused on addressing a gaping need in a market that has remained underserved while breaking down barriers to entry for smaller investors. For these small-scale miners, there is a huge challenge in terms of increasing production, who usually rely on very basic, poor-quality tools and dangerous methods to do their job, severely limiting their production capabilities. Without reasonably fair and easy access to credit, they cannot increase their production. And they have no hope of increasing production without the efficiency and effectiveness achieved by having state-of-the-art equipment at their disposal.

Also, employment is scarce, and people desperate to support their families are unable to do so from agriculture alone. Local small-scale gold mining operations offer a lifeline. However, the vast majority work in ‘informal’ mines that do not comply with any industry standards or safety regulations. Child labor and inhumane conditions are devastatingly common in these artisanal operations, and with little legal support due to informal operations, illegal operators control the flow of gold in these areas and force the miners to accept much less than market value for the gold they produce. With no security or legal protection, these people face the everyday reality of serious risk to their health and, sadly, reports of injuries and death are not uncommon. Largely unskilled and untrained miners are trapped in a cycle of grinding poverty, but they have no alternative choice for survival.

In addition to the horrific working conditions, current ASGM practices pose a substantial ecological threat. The widespread use of toxic chemical processes, including mercury and cyanide, destroys the local environment and causes irreversible water and air pollution. In fact, the ASGM sector is responsible for nearly 40% of the world’s total human-made mercury emissions. At its core, the problem is that small-scale miners can’t access the financing they need for modern resources and technology to enable environmentally-friendly and safe extraction. Avoided and largely unknown by mainstream lenders, the sector faces a real blockage to progress. To prevent any further devastating social and environmental consequences, it is vital to level the playing field and accelerate the formalization of the ASGM industry.

The Solution

The solution is simple, albeit not necessarily easy. Blockchain technology can address many of the issues faced by the ASGM community. For starters, it provides a decentralized way for artisanal and small miners to raise capital through the sale of digital assets. Such financial inclusion, unheard of even a decade ago, provides opportunities to an otherwise unbanked or underbanked market. For instance, these crowdfunded investments can go toward buying state-of-the-art equipment, improving processes, and gaining access to markets otherwise not available via traditional means. All these changes can help ASGMs increase their production from 2,000 to 5,000 percent with improved capabilities. This innovation also benefits the average retail investor. By harnessing the strengths of blockchain technology, GoldFinX is democratizing the process for investors of all sizes by giving everyone the same access to selected mines with considerably high-growth potential.

More importantly, blockchain technology creates supply-chain transparency and confirms the gold comes from compliant mining operations — something that can mitigate the so-called “blood diamond” or “conflict diamond” situation that had been an issue in another industry, which is diamond mining. This transparency gives investors the peace of mind that their capital is placed in businesses that stand up for best industry practices in gold mining, and not invested in industries that encourage bad labor practices. As an added benefit, the middleman is eliminated in the sales cycle of their gold, thus giving these artisanal miners direct access to global markets and allowing them to gain more profit from their mining activities, while at the same time avoiding a situation of overpricing.

Beyond Profits

Gold mining essentially leverages a finite resource, and the industry needs to look toward sustainability to ensure that mining activities are not harmful to their health and environment. The elimination of rudimentary gold extraction methods involving the use of toxic chemicals such as mercury and cyanide goes a long way to resolve these fundamental issues. Through a truly sustainable mechanism that leverages new technology, GoldFinX’s approach complements the socially and environmentally responsible investing movement that is gaining traction worldwide, as investors realise their duty to view each decision in terms of its potential impact. It is important to recognise that making good investments and helping to make the world a better place are not mutually exclusive. ‘Doing good’ is just good business sense.

XRP and Ripple will Revolutionize Money Transfers, Says the President of Japan’s SBI

XRP and Ripple will Revolutionize Money Transfers, Says the President of Japan’s SBI

Ripple XRP Cryptocurrency 2018

Cryptocurrencies and blockchain technologies have the potential to change the way industries function today.

Since the emergence of Bitcoin many enthusiasts have debated about the possibility of cryptocurrencies to replace the use of traditional money, but the financial sector is not willing to lose the battle without fighting and are already using the power of blockchain to strengthen themselves.But Bitcoin (BTC) is not the technology that will revolutionize the world of finance. For Yoshitaka Kitao, President and CEO of SBI Holdings, Ripple’s tech, and in particular the use of XRP will allow developing a more efficient money transfer system on a global scale.

According to the Japanese outlet Coin Post, Mr. Yoshitaka said

“I became an executive at Ripple Inc, the company that manages XRP. We will thoroughly develop the remittance business around the world. To provide not only distributed ledger technology but also a method for exchanging money around the world more quickly and at a lower cost by using virtual currency and cryptographic asset called XRP.

Mr. Kitao was appointed to Ripple’s board of director in April, demonstrating that there is a strong relationship between the San Francisco-based startup and the Japanese giant. XRP has been praised by different financial institutions for the speed and low costs associated with its transactions, however, within the ecosystem, this technology has also been harshly criticized for the “toxicity” of its community and Ripple’s philosophy, which seems to go against what cryptocurrencies stand for

XRP vs The “Traditional” Giants

The emergence of corporate projects such as the stablecoin promoted by JP Morgan and Facebook’s Libra have also generated a strong debate about the future of Ripple. Many think these new players will make Ripple obsolete, or at least make its technology unnecessary.However, Ripple’s CTO, David Schwartz, defends the company, considering that those who think this way simply lack of proper understanding of the technology or issue biased opinions.So far, XRP has had a bearish year, going from 9000 satoshis to just under 5000 sats. Right now, however, T.A seems optimistic for those interested in holding the token for a long run
