Increase Earnings Being Active on Social Media

Increase Earnings Being Active on Social Media

Today, Social networks are incredibly popular. From Twitter to TikTok, about 3.8 billion people are using them in all their many forms. On average, internet users are spending 2 hours, 24 minutes every day on social media.

Because of their popularity, social networks are an excellent place for finding new connections or sharing pictures from recent activities, and finding new customers for a business. One of the great things is that you don't even need to run a business yourself — you can profit from promoting someone else's products or services via affiliate marketing.

 

Affiliate Marketing in a Nutshell

Affiliate marketing online is digital marketing, whereby you generate earnings from promoting companies' products and services. You receive a commission for purchases by new customers you have introduced to a company. The more new customers you refer to purchase a product, the greater your earnings will be. As mentioned above, social media can be a tremendous source of referrals for you.

 

Which Social Network Should You Use?

Almost all of the more popular social networks provide the necessary infrastructure for doing affiliate marketing activity. Even on Instagram, where link usage is limited, you can still refer your target audience to an affiliate link in your bio.

The question becomes which social media channel will work best for you. If your preference is to transmit your message with text, Facebook and Twitter are most likely be the preferred choices. 

If you would instead communicate to your audience with pictures and short videos, then Instagram should be your critical social media channel. Marketers who enjoy making how-to and product review videos have Youtube available to host them — remember to put your affiliate link in the description.

While it's possible to use multiple social media platforms simultaneously, always keep in mind that quantity should never be pursued at the expense of quality.

 

Rules to Follow:

It's no secret that most people hate advertising. So when promoting items in your posts on social media, it's essential to follow specific rules:

1. Always provide value.
Short posts that say things like, "Use Go Daddy for domain registration" or "Get 20% discount at Go Daddy" with an affiliate link to the website. This doesn't allow any engagement and will result in disappointment from your audience. The critical rule of Twitter, as an example, is to develop a relationship with your community, so don't just focus on sales. 

Giving advice that provides solutions on forums like Quora or Reddit is a great way to brand yourself while giving value. The answers and recommendations you give should be valuable content that pertains to the enquirer. It's advantageous to describe a personal experience, a problem that you solved, the research you conducted (e.g., about specific or new Top Level Domains (TLDs), hosting uptime, etc.).

2. Link to articles on your website.
Provide additional details, context, and engagement by linking to a post on your website, which in turn connects to affiliate products. Tell a compelling story and build stronger relationships by presenting opinions, information, and content of an influential nature. 

3. Balance out different types of content.
It might seem that users are always happy to get news about a promo or a deal, but everything of one type becomes annoying fast. The answer is to provide a balance between educational or entertainment content and promo content.
 

 

4. Use shortened URLs
Long URLs will make your post cumbersome and unappealing.  It's good to know there are many link shortener services out there. On Twitter, the links are shortened by their service — t.co. Or you can use a third-party link shortener, such as Bitly or TinyURL.

Additionally, a lot of affiliate networks have affiliate link shorteners right within their platform. The top link shortener I've seen is Markethive's Tiny URL

The Tiny URL tool lets you convert lengthy URLs in to short URLs, use in social posts, email, and take up fewer characters in Twitter tweets. It's the perfect way to handle long affiliate URLs as well.

In addition to creating a more friendly URL, the platform will track visitor stats for you. It's the perfect tool to analyze your promotional results, better understand your target audience's interests, and optimize your social, email, and other marketing campaigns.

You can even use the Tiny URL tool together with the Website Rotator tool that automatically rotates to the websites you choose. Very powerful for teams working together to promote a single URL.

5. Refer to the most relevant page.
For example, if you're describing a special promo — refer directly to the promo's landing page, which will increase your conversion rate.

 

6. Include pictures and videos in your posts.
Including pictures and videos is one of the top ways to draw attention to your post. If you do affiliate marketing on Instagram, it's better to use your compelling pictures or videos rather than ready-to-use pictures or affiliate banners as they will appear more natural in your audience's feed.  

7. Make posts regularly.
Trying not to appear pushy doesn't mean you should disappear. Setting up a schedule for your social media activities will ensure you don't run out of ideas and content. You can plan the testing of different approaches and strategies.

Markethive's Blogging Platform includes dynamic benefits. Just publishing on the platform provides traffic. Your blog platform gives you a visitor display at a glance. Also, in development, you will have a separate, dedicated tracking feature showing statistics for deep traffic analytical detail on visitors. The data includes country origin, time on site, bounce rate, referrers, keywords, social sites, and a data-driven matrix. 

8. Leave a disclaimer.
Build transparency and increase trust by being open with your audience and adding disclaimers to your posts. This way, your audience has all the facts — and keep in mind that faith means loyalty, which means more business. 

 

It's Time To Act

If used properly, social media can be a powerful tool for your affiliate marketing success and increase your earnings. Follow the basic rules and tips listed above, and even social media newbies can quickly achieve great results.

MARKETHIVE – Entrepreneur One Upgrade Explained

MARKETHIVE – Entrepreneur One Upgrade Explained

Markethive’s Entrepreneur One Loyalty Program takes on a new meaning and concept. 

Loyalty programs have become second nature and intrinsically crucial to many businesses and us as consumers starting way back in the 1970s with Airlines offering frequent flyer points. There are now many different loyalty programs; however, the most common is the Point Program, where customers accumulate points to redeem their rewards. 

Loyalty Programs were basically introduced to increase the customer base and the company's bottom line and create the potential for loyal consumers and repeat business. 

The image below illustrates the top 5 categories in which loyalty programs have been successful where the Spend has increased, are fundamental to our daily living—one way we can save money by being in their loyalty program. As a customer, it's very satisfying to know we've saved money, but is there a way to make money? 
 

 
Make Money with Markethive's Hybrid Loyalty Programs

Loyalty Programs have evolved online with Markethive at the forefront, embracing the loyalty program's concept and enhancing it with the opportunity to earn a significant income and rewards. Markethive will be offering a continued stream of loyalty programs such as the Entrepreneur 1 Loyalty Program and Bounty Program. 

The E1 upgrade includes products and services like Press releases, Banner Impressions Exchange, banner and video advertising, and matching coin bonus airdrop. Then there's the Vault, even gamification, and much more as we continue to improve and enhance the incentives for Markethive members to achieve their personal and business goals with the result of universal income and self-sovereignty.

 The Entrepreneur 1 Loyalty Program 

Cost $100 per month

The Entrepreneur Loyalty Program is E1 (Entrepreneur One Upgrade) and is available now, but for a limited time. Each E1 Associate receives a 1/10th of an ILP (Incentivized Loan Program) after 12 months of consecutive payments of $100 per month. Even when this closes, you will never lose your E1 status or the benefits, providing you stay current with your monthly payment. Each year the 1/10th or 10% share of 1 ILP will accrue provided you are active for ten years until you have acquired one full ILP.

Here Are 15 Extra Advantages of the Entrepreneur One Upgrade

The Entrepreneur One Upgrade is the premium highest level you will ever have the opportunity to acquire. It contains all the leveraged advantages you need to accelerate your success in Markethive. Apart from the 1/10th ILP, you receive after 12 months that accumulates every year after that, providing you stay current with your monthly subscription of US$100, you also qualify for the following: 

1. Associates Control Panel: Gain full data, their social networks, verified phone and text, verified email, and a contact management system that tracks data, stores dated notes, sends messaging and calendars events reminding actions on your Markethive calendar like callbacks, email, etc. with the Associates' Control Panel (Part of your Friends section)
 
2. Primary Matching Airdrop Bonus: Receive a 100% matching bonus from the new registration Airdrops. This can be a significant reward for those that aggressively build "associates," the term used for the leads, Markethive provides (profile page and default capture page). Our first infinity airdrop will be 500 MHV coins

It doesn't take a lot of effort to offer a powerful and valuable system as the Markethive system that also rewards new members with an immediate 500 coin reward. You can easily promote this and build 1000s of referrals to add up to significant coins and customers.
 
3. Secondary Matching Airdrop Bonus: When your associate customer upgrades to Entrepreneur, we airdrop them 100 coins, and you will also receive 100 coins as a matching bonus.
 
4. Matching ILP Loyalty Program:  You also get an equal ILP share after 12 months of continuity with the Entrepreneur program from your referral who upgrades. What that means is liken to an ICO, your monthly payment is accrued, and if you stay current for 12 straight months, we contribute to you a full 10% ILP and continue to offer this 12-month reward for ten years or your stop payment. This offer is limited to the first 1000 active upgrades.
 
5. Banner Impressions Exchange: You also get unlimited 1st level Banner advertisements in all of our traffic portals and Internet properties. This offer is incredibly valuable as it's considered prime real estate. Markethive properties are already receiving significant traffic, and as we grow, this traffic is included with the Entrepreneur 1 upgrade. Each E1 member gets an equal share of the total number of impressions from the massive traffic Markethive receives. 

Markethive has released the first of many money machines being the Banner Impressions Exchange (BIX). Non-Entrepreneur 1 members can also purchase banner impressions from the active Entrepreneur 1 associate who wishes to resell their impressions. These banner slots will only be available to buy from current Entrepreneur 1 members. Now that's a cool little business right there! 
 
The Banner Impressions Exchange is where any E1 associate can create a Banner Ad business within the Markethive system by listing their unused Banner slots/impressions up for bid. Choosing to transact with MHV is very easy as payments are automated within the system. You may also transact using BTC, ETH, Paypal, and others; however, you need to manage the transactions as the seller.
 
 6. Press Release Program: Markethive will also be delivering a Press Release system as a hybrid liken to PRNewswire (traditional distribution) to include Forbes, Yahoo! Finance, CNNMoney, MarketWatch, TheStreet.com, Bizjournals.com, Business.com, Wired, Tech Crunch, Engadget, Computerworld, CNET News, InformationWeek, R&D Magazine and more in the Tech industry. Our Media List will be greater than 4000 media organizations, journalists, reporters, bloggers, producers, freelance writers, and editors across print, online, blogs, radio, and television.

 It will also publish to our growing social network followers (146,500 and growing via MH subscribers) and increasing WordPress blogs. When Markethive reaches 1 million members, our Social Following is projected to be at (700,000 – 2 million followers total) and about 150,000 WordPress sites. 

These WordPress sites will be mini news media and vertical news media like https://aimhigh.news along with publication to Markethive's portfolio of sites like https://Markethive.com, https://Markethive.net, https://allaboutco.in, https://aboutbitco.in, and https://aboutco.in.
 
Cointelegraph, a vertical tech news media organization, which charges about $8,500 per release with an Alexa rank (2,622), social followers (1.3 million), and 16,000 subscribers justifies their price. Markethive's press release will be priced accordingly and increase as our subscribers' reach grows. The second-biggest digital news media site to Cointelegraph is CNN, with an Alexa rank (15,665) that charges $1800 and only posts to their main site front page.

The Entrepreneur One Upgrade will include one Press Release per month for life as long as your Entrepreneur One Upgrade remains active and current. The free press release does not roll over, although additional Press releases will be discounted.

7. Sponsored Article Program: Sponsored content is a piece of brand journalism that lives on a publisher's website. The publisher's staff usually writes it, so the article matches the rest of their content's tone and voice. The Sponsored Article is published to the same distribution Markethive articles are posted on plus, notification of articles are sent to our social network, and 1000s of connected WordPress sites. Sponsored articles run from high-end media sites like Cointelegraph for $7500 to an average of $1200 for most other media systems in the general markets.
 
8. News Feed Boost: Entrepreneurs get one news feed boost (publish a post to the entire membership) per month. This does not accrue.
 
9. Co-Op Customer Acquisition Program: Markethive strategic campaigns will designate 60% to 80% of our revenue into Marketing and Advertising campaigns. These campaigns will point to Markethive assets like:

  • Markethive.com
  • Markethive.net
  • Aboutco.in
  • Allaboutco.in
  • Aboutbitco.in
  • Ewav.net
  • Iwav.net

Traditional Customer Co-Op programs charge $50 to $100 per customer. Cooperative marketing programs foster teamwork between a brand (Markethive) and its channel partners (Markethive Subscribers). Channel partners often don't have large marketing departments. 

Markethive is more equipped to create professional advertisements and deal with media placement. Markethive Entrepreneur Upgrade subscribers generate the demand, and Co-op marketing programs take advantage of the sales channel's local presence. This benefits both the partner and the brand.
 
10. Commerce Portals: To sell on our commerce portals, like Big Kahuna (A website builder like WIX), Beelancers (A freelancer service like Freelancers), Markethive Exchange (A full-service crypto exchange like https://idex.market/), you must be an active Entrepreneur One Upgrade to sell or trade. This eliminates processing fees and commissions found on Freelancers, Upwork, Guru, etc. 

Buyers have no obligation other than free registration with Markethive. This change in services where it is traditional to be constrained into the platform and pay high processing fees and commissions are eliminated with the Markethive Entrepreneur Upgrade system.
 
11. Crowdfunding Portal: If Markethive engages (likely we will) with a crowdfunding campaign, promoted to top crowdfunding systems like ICOranker, ICObench, Tokentops, Airdrops.io, and Cryptoslate.com, etc. We will be sharing the campaign traffic via all Entrepreneurs through our crowdfunding portal @ Markethive.io and giving all Entrepreneur Upgrades their own self replicated portal to help in the campaign. 

These portals will earn equal matching shadow shares if they bring in new ILP purchases and be traffic portals acquiring new members.
 
12. Texting: Ability to send a text to your Associates. Limited to one per day per Associate
 
13. Upgrade Groups to Store Fronts: Storefronts have landing pages, forms, shopping carts and designed to act as a vertical eBay or Affiliate portal.
 
14. Advertise to the Calendar: Publish events to your calendar included in the main Calendar page within Markethive.
 
15. Video Advertising: A video ad portal will be included with the Entrepreneur One, similar to the banner portal.

 

 

Let's Look At The Numbers Of The ILP Income Potential

The E1 Associates' share of the ILP represents 20% of the net revenue of Markethive and, based on real internal statistics and tracking, the projections indicate that by 2023 a member base of 500 million will yield a monthly income of $5.6 billion. 20% of that equals $1.2 billion allocated for the ILPs, divided by the maximum of 1000 ILPs, and returns a $1.2 million payment per ILP. 1/10th of that ILP (earned via the E1 upgrade) returns a monthly payment of $120,000. 

Even the external statistics confirm Markethive's projections, like our Alexa Ranking currently sitting at 3,797 at the time of writing, display Markethive is at the top 3 of similar sites in the industry. Blockchain technology and cryptocurrency have made it so easy for Markethive to pass on the benefits and wealth to the community. 

This opportunity of upgrading to the Entrepreneur One loyalty program where you will receive a 1/10th iLP every year you are active and current will soon disappear, so don't miss out. Instead of a few investors taking the lion's share of the profits like all other platforms, Markethive is giving you the chance to be part of the early adopter phase. You will own a piece of this next-generation social market network that includes everything you need to be successful online. 
   
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 valuable tools and considerable returns from the ILP. The ILP is on track to commence revenue payments early next year and will grow as Markethive grows.

 

 

Moving Forward

As Markethive moves forward, we will be introducing some entry-level loyalty programs offering some extra fundamental services for those who cannot upgrade to the Entrepreneur 1 level. Stay tuned for that. The Apprentice Program will be entry-level available, costing a fraction of an E1 upgrade; however, it will not include the ILP increments. 

And of course, don't forget about the Referral Program that will unlock your Micropayment Faucet System. The Bounty program, Hive Rank, and MHV HI-LO game bring gamification to the Markethive ecosystem, making it fun, exciting, and increasing your earning potential within the hive. More about this in upcoming articles. 
 

 

Everyone Succeeds

Markethive truly wants everyone to succeed and as we are blockchain driven with our own consumer coin, (MHV), this is a reality and very much the future of social market networks. Now there is a real place to earn real online income while doing what you love. 

You can feel safe in knowing your data is protected and self-sovereignty is paramount in this collaborative environment. You are respected as an individual and your loyalty will be rewarded as Markethive is on track and on time with its milestones and set to deliver the additional promised services. Markethive’s traction is increasing exponentially and it’s all coming together as the next generation Market Network in a league all of its own.

 The Entrepreneur One Upgrade is a reciprocal blessing of a divine vision.

Wall Street’s Narrative of the American Dream Is One Of  Deception

Wall Street’s Narrative of the American Dream Is One Of 
Deception

MARKETHIVE AN INSPIRING STORY
 
With the entrepreneurial spirit, the qualities of integrity, wisdom, and benevolence manifest, which achieves much more than just a fat bank account. 

 

The Inspiring Story of Entrepreneur Teeka Tiwari

I didn’t always have a Porsche 911 GT3 RS. I didn’t always have a multimillion-dollar real estate portfolio. And I certainly didn’t always have the freedom to travel the world, first-class, with my family and loved ones. Had you met me as a child in Britain’s foster system, you never would’ve thought I’d be writing this today. 

You see, I grew up dirt poor. Food stamps, clothing vouchers, free school lunch – the whole nine yards. My early years were spent ping-ponging between group homes, foster homes, and hospital wards (I was very ill as a child).

Looking back, I was an outcast in many ways. I was ashamed of being in foster care and would lie about it. As far as anyone else knew, I lived with my mother. That meant I was socially isolated. I couldn’t take the risk of people finding out, so I kept everyone at arm’s length. Sitting here 35 years later, I have no idea why I cared so much about other people knowing I was in foster care. But I did.

With everything I had stacked up against me, I had one thing going for me: a dream. I know that sounds corny… I think it does, too. But my dream of a better future allowed me to bear the burdens of my present. I don’t know what I would have done without it.

I dreamt of a better life – one where I could come and go as I pleased on my own terms… and buy what I wanted for those I cared about. I even went so far as to cut out pictures of New York City’s skyline. I imagined myself walking between the skyscrapers… living the life of a Wall Street hotshot. 

You have to understand how absurd that dream was at the time. Here I was – a 13-year-old boy with no connections, no prospects, an average student lodged deep into the British foster care system. By all reasonable observations, my dreams were delusional. And many good-intentioned people tried to talk me out of them.

But I was stubborn. I refused to believe the “good life” was only for a secret select few. I don’t know why I believed this… but I believed if I looked long enough and worked hard enough, I could find a pathway to my dreams. All I had to do was keep looking and keep trying.

My Path to My American Dream

Finally, I got my first big break, and it took me to New York City. (How that came about is a story for another day.) On July 9, 1987, I touched down in America at JFK International Airport with only $150 in my pocket. Soon enough, I was working three jobs. And I offered to work for free on Wall Street… until a Wall Street bigwig gave me a shot.

Make no mistake, I had humble beginnings. I started off as an assistant for the big-time brokers. But “assistant” is too fancy a title. I was a glorified gopher. I was the guy getting the coffee, the dry-cleaning, the breakfast order, the lunch order, etc. I never complained. I was just happy to be in the room. As my brokers bossed me around, I acted like a sponge, soaking in all the knowledge I could. And much to my mentor’s surprise, I aced the Series 7 brokers exam.

In two years, I became the youngest vice president in Shearson Lehman history. After 15 years on Wall Street, I left and ran my own successful hedge fund for a decade before retiring. And today, I’m living my American Dream.

Here’s why I’m writing this… Everything you’ve been told about achieving the American Dream is wrong. And I want to change that…

My Dream Came at a Cost

It took me two years to attain my dream of working on Wall Street. But it came at a cost… I couldn’t help but shake the feeling it was happening at the expense of other people’s dreams. 

Wall Street trained me to focus on putting fees first and customers second. For years, I toed Wall Street’s line that it takes 40 years of sacrifice – of locking your money away in fee-laden funds – just to achieve your dreams. But behind your back, I saw them laughing at you – the clients we were supposed to help.

You see, Wall Street has spent billions of dollars conditioning you to keep your money with them your whole life. That’s how they get all their fees. They don’t want you to be rich. They don’t want you to be financially independent. They want you constantly putting your money in their high-cost funds for the next four decades… so they can buy their fancy cars, put their kids in nice schools, and go on their great vacations.

One day, it hit me. I had become a parasite. I was feeding off others without providing value in return. As I faced that realization, I knew I had to make a radical change. So I quit my job… leaving millions of dollars on the table. I decided to launch my own independent research firm to share my insights with regular investors. I started building my life around the idea of giving others value in order to receive value.

 

Turning the Tables

Since leaving Wall Street, my goal has been to help create more millionaires than any other financial newsletter editor in the U.S. And I’m proud to say my ideas have helped numerous Americans achieve their dreams… I know this year has been rough. In the first 12 weeks of the pandemic, over 40 million people lost their jobs. At the same time, we’ve seen billionaires collectively grow a half-trillion dollars richer.

So people are saying, “Forget the American Dream. I’d just like to get back to even.”

Integrate Markethive With Your Affiliate Programs For Optimum Results

Integrate Markethive With Your Affiliate Programs For Optimum Results

AFFILIATE MARKETING WITH MARKETHIVE

We at Markethive pride ourselves in being entrepreneurial, and the fact that our logo says Ecosystem For Entrepreneurs is precisely what Markethive is. If you're an affiliate marketer, did you know you have a complete turnkey system in Markethive to achieve not only exceptional sales results but also long-lasting relationships you can build?

Everyone who joins Markethive either has their own business or is looking for a way to make money on the Markethive platform. Internally, we have the Markethive Vault, Loyalty program, MHV micropayment faucet, and referral program with its generous infinity airdrops; however, it's important to note, with the development of the turnkey system, Markethive is also the perfect platform for affiliate marketers. 

What Is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate marketing is essentially the promotion of a business, company, or individual product. It is based on relationships in which one party (the Affiliate Party) sells another party's product and receives a commission to sell its product or service. This allows you to work with the brand to help them sell their product while earning commissions every time someone buys through your affiliate link.

Affiliate marketing became a concept in 1989 and took off in 1996 with Amazon Associates. Today, the affiliate marketing industry shows steady growth with an expected $6.8 billion spends in 2020.  

Considered a unique form of marketing, it is among the most popular approaches to drive sales and generate revenue. Affiliate marketing is beneficial for companies and affiliates alike and offers a convenient and cost-effective niche.  

Markethive BIX, Banners, And Impressions

The Banner Impressions Exchange (BIX), along with an ever-increasing amount of impressions, commands excellent organic traffic helped by Markethive's positioning, as shown on Alexa Rank, lends itself to a golden opportunity of any affiliate program one chooses to expedite.

The BIX allows you to sell your impressions on the exchange, which many Markethive entrepreneurs are doing. Alternatively, the affiliate marketers within Markethive are creating banners and using their impressions each month to promote their affiliate programs. 

Using your allocation of impressions is a great way to promote your business; however, many link their banner directly to their affiliate link, which points outside of Markethive to their affiliate website. This limits potential outcomes, resulting in missed opportunities.

Apart from the traffic stats you can access within Markethive's analytics for your banner, you don't know who they are, nor will you have the chance to build a relationship with them if they didn't take any further action on your website at that point. 

A Different Perspective

A solution would be to create a group or a storefront within Markethive. You can set up a landing page, paste information, tutorials, images, or videos from your affiliate website into the group's activity page. 

When a prospect clicks on your banner with the link now directed to your group, they will be able to join you in that affiliate program and Markethive. This allows you to keep in touch with them, provide them with reviews, updates, or new products. 

Inviting them to your group to purchase your affiliate product within Markethive can be seen as a support mechanism that includes a social aspect that would most likely be comforting to the new user, given they are now in a group of like-minded people.  

Almost 68% of affiliate marketers use social media to connect and display valuable content and offers in a specific group that allows them to build relationships and gain trust. This personal approach is expected to increase in the upcoming years, and Markethive is poised to play an integral part in this facilitation. 

Blogging And Affiliate Marketing

Did you know that nearly 65% of affiliate marketers rely on good content to enhance their campaigns? According to these statistics, there has been a 175% increase in content produced by affiliates and a whopping 240% increase in revenue created by content publishers over the last few years. 

Blogging has become an integrated sector of the overall affiliate marketing strategies as stats show that 47% of buyers read 3 to 5 pieces of content before deciding to purchase. 

This medium is where your storefront's blog section can be of service to the associates that have joined you in your group. Creating valuable content about your products and services can be a deciding factor and help build trust and integrity.

 

ecosystem for entrepreneurs

 

Make More Money While You Make Money 

The storefronts (groups) is designed to be a complete turnkey system for any independent business or affiliate program you promote. This includes capture pages, landing pages, autoresponders, broadcasting, co-op assignments, and campaigns with link rotators for those building a team. 

Automated tutorials on how to create and monetize any opportunity within the bounds of Markethive and its unique storefront system will be added. And you are not limited to one storefront. 

You can have as many storefronts to cater to the various affiliate niches you require. For you, it's central to managing all of your businesses. For the customer, it provides a platform of information and support and the added opportunity to be in a social environment to earn an income with Markethive if desired.   

Another benefit of using Markethive as your storefront to promote your business is your potential to increase your Hive Rank. As group numbers grow, it has a positive impact on your Hive Rank score, which increases your MHV earnings. It's the highest paying micropayment paid by Markethive, other than the airdrop received when you refer people to Markethive. 

A Collaborative Ecosystem  

As you evolve with your banner creations and promotions using your Markethive impressions, you may need to purchase more impressions from the BIX resellers. This increases the demand for the impressions, which increases the price, resulting in a very lucrative income from the Banner Impressions Exchange. 

So it's two-fold, the affiliate marketer makes money from their program gaining loyal customers in their groups, and the BIX resellers also profit. All this under the Markethive umbrella, making it a collaborative ecosystem, a marketplace, and a home for entrepreneurs and consumers. 

CEO and Marketing Director Thomas Prendergast presents the "Coffee withTom" weekly meetings, which is a hands-on approach. The sharing of new ideas, explaining the benefits of affiliate programs, outlining the best ones, and how you can integrate the Marketive tools to provide a better experience for your prospects and make your affiliate business more manageable for you to conduct.

The Future Is Bright

Although affiliate marketing has been around for a while, there's a whole new generation rising up, proving that there is a legitimate way to earn a living online. Entrepreneur Adam Enfroy has done just that, starting as recently as 2019. Along with his outstanding success, he guides beginners, recommending the best affiliate programs and sound advice.

These affiliate marketing statistics indicate an overwhelming acceptance of this advertising model for just about anyone to make money online. 

  • More than 80% of brands have affiliate programs. 
  • America is the most significant player in the affiliate industry, with a 39% share.
  • Nearly 65% of affiliate marketers generate traffic by blogging.
  • 94% of publishers use multiple affiliate marketing networks.
  • Advertisers generate between 15% and 30% of all sales from affiliate programs.
  • Affiliate marketing is responsible for 16% of global ecommerce sales.

Surprisingly, affiliate marketing is far less time-consuming than other marketing methods, and there's little to no initial outlay. It's recognized as a great way to make some money just by promoting other businesses' products and services. The opportunity to tap into new markets and boost traffic is an added advantage. 

All you need is your blog or website, some writing skills, and a little advice to get started. The perfect scenario would be to have a platform to consolidate your affiliate niches, surround yourself in a social environment with all the SaaS tools you need to facilitate your business from start to finish. 

This is what Markethive gives you, along with a collaborative, stable learning environment for the entrepreneurial beginner. In 2020, it's clear that the future of affiliate marketing is a bright one, and with Markethive at the helm, it's a perfect match.

THE FUTURE IS BRIGHT FOR MARKETHIVE… 

THE FUTURE IS BRIGHT FOR MARKETHIVE… 

…and all who sail in her

"Where there's a will, there's a way". 

Markethive has come a long way since the days of being the first automated marketing platform back in the mid-1990s. Thanks to the onset of Blockchain technology and the innovative culture of Markethive, with its visionary leaders, C.E.O., Thomas Prendergast, and C.T.O. Douglas Yates, we have seen significant progress with each milestone accomplished along the way in a timely fashion. 

Throughout Markethive's evolution, we have experienced some adversity, and Markethive has prevailed because it's driven by the divine vision of the omnipotent Lord, God. Today's global landscape of spiritual war has only made it more vital to move forward to the next level to deliver the fruits of our labors and goodwill. 

As explained by Thomas Prendergast,

"Markethive is our life's work. We do not build it for our own wealth and recognition. We aspire to build it to give the Lord all the glory, that in reality, we are but the masons, the carpenters, and the Lord is the architect and the main contractor." 

Given the repudiation of mainstream social media and the like, this is Markethive's time to shine. 

 

 

What Is Markethive’s Current Worth? 

The team behind this monolithic project is driven non-stop, working around the clock to render Markethive Adsense friendly, gain approval, and get the green light with external ad agencies to turn on this advertising revenue stream. 

The first will be Markethive.com, which will then branch out to Markethive.net, .org, and the many other domains Markethive has acquired. 

These added revenue streams will see Markethive in profit, and subsequently, the current I.L.P. holders will start receiving the promised dividends.    

The potential income for Markethive with these revenue streams is currently estimated at $426,540 per month, reaching a number into the millions per year, as shown in this independent study.

Markethive’s Current Goal Is Fast Approaching

Markethive's imminent goal is to move into the profit column with this added revenue and start paying out on the I.L.P.s as well as launching the Markethive Coin (M.H.V.) onto the exchanges to provide value and liquidity for the Markethive community. 

Markethive, the company has purposely not engaged any venture capitalists to assist in a more rapid advancement as its goal is to share the profits with the loyal users of the Markethive platform. 

The expected future forthcoming advertising revenue will give us the ability to move forward as planned. It's happening now as the ad agencies have approved Markethive and now awaiting activation. 

Markethive is the next generation of social media and inbound marketing on the blockchain, growing and becoming more prevalent each day by giving the power back to the people.

Bitcoin vs. Ripple Explainer

Bitcoin vs. Ripple Explainer

Whether you’re new to the world of blockchain technology or are simply looking to sharpen your sensibilities when it comes to distinguishing the market’s key players,

there is always more to learn. Cryptocurrency trading is fueled by hype and that means that new players are always popping up and disappearing. Bitcoin remains the constant staple in this everchanging landscape and also serves as a useful benchmark against which to understand and evaluate other actors. If you’ve got things like a graph of bitcoin price history saved to your bookmarks, there’s a good chance you’ve also encountered the name Ripple. If you are interested to learn how it stacks up against its forebearer, read on to discover the similarities and differences between Bitcoin and Ripple. 

The risk remains the same

One thing to clear up right off the bat is that all cryptocurrencies exist in a volatile and very speculative market. Although a lack of regulations is part of the draw, it also means that anything goes and there are really no guaranteed bets. Ripple and Bitcoin are both parts of this ecosystem, so keep in mind that if you’re thinking about investing in either, or any blockchain cryptocurrency for that matter, you should go in ready to potentially lose your complete initial investment. When it comes to investing in any cryptocurrency, you’d be best to hedge your bets and only put forth capital that you would be comfortable without. 

Ripple 101

When thinking about Bitcoin, most people understand it as a digital currency that can be used to purchase a variety of goods and services in the online marketplace. Therefore, the number one thing to understand about Ripple is that it serves a slightly different function. Simply put, Ripple is a system for currency exchange, payment settling, and remittance that can be used by payment networks and banks to provide higher transparency and security. Unlike Bitcoin, Ripple was never designed to be an independent method of payment. One of the biggest advantages of Ripple is that it allows for a fairly seamless transfer of assets that plays out in near real-time, providing more peace of mind for those involved in the transaction. 

Ripple doesn’t use blockchain

Another important distinction to make between Bitcoin and Ripple is the fact that Ripple doesn’t use blockchain to fulfill its function. Unlike Bitcoin, Ripple works through a network of validating servers and crypto tokens. The tokens are often referred to as Ripples but are formally called XRP. These are the actual cryptocurrency being exchanged in Ripple, which uses a distributed consensus ledger. 

A closer look at XRP tokens

In terms of how Ripple replaces standard settlement systems, it is useful to think of XRP tokens as a replacement for US dollars, which are frequently used as a middle ground currency for exchanging others. Due to established standards of exchange and the regulations in place, using US dollars not only takes considerably more time but is also accompanied by the dreaded currency exchange fees. On top of costing more than most are happy to pay, standard international transfers can sometimes take three days or more to process. Enter the XRP token. Completely supplanting the process, the value of the assets being exchanged are first converted into XPR (as opposed to USD), allowing for fees to be wiped away and the waiting time to be reduced from days to mere seconds. Returning to the Bitcoin comparison, it is worth noting that Bitcoin transactions tend to take around 10 minutes, and although this is certainly less than three days, it is still significantly more than the five-second transaction rate Ripple can achieve. 

Different origin stories 

Unlike the more mysterious emergence of Bitcoin, which is currently maintained by a team of dedicated developers and not tied to any government, bank, or third part, Ripple is more mainstream. Founded in 2012, Ripple was developed by an actual company and had set goals outlined from the get-go. This more standard entry onto the world stage has likely been one aspect that has helped make Ripple more palatable for major financial institutions. Santander and Fidor Bank are just a few of the big names who have said that they are in the process of testing or even implementing various applications of the Ripple Network payment apparatus. 

No mining for Ripple

Another difference that might be hard for Bitcoin enthusiasts to wrap their heads around is that Ripple was not, in fact, designed to be mined at all. An important part of the Bitcoin ecosystem, miners of the cryptocurrency will typically be rewarded for their efforts in the form of a new Bitcoin. Ripple, meanwhile, is pre-mined. There are currently around 38 billion XPR tokens populating the market. The remainder resides in Ripple labs and will be released onto the market in incremental amounts.

This allows them to lay a more substantial foundation for the emerging cryptocurrency-based financial landscape and fintech zeal. MiningJOY’s business now involves two parts: cloud mining services for individual investors and supercomputer server rental hosting service for professional and institutional clients. Currently with MiningJOY’s spot-delivery products, clients will start to receive Bitcoin mining payouts the next day. The prices start with $20.10 (mine until the last minute of your machine’s life expectancy), with the electricity rate as low as $0.052 per kW⋅h. If the price of Bitcoin stays above $11,000, the full-year return of Whatsminer M20s mining contract per terabyte (TB) is expected to be around $30.00, which results in an annual yield of 13.32%. The mini order quantity starts from just 1 TB.

BLOCKCHAIN – THE QUIET ACHIEVER 

BLOCKCHAIN – THE QUIET ACHIEVER 

Markethive Blockchain, the quiet achiever

Time For Trustless Trust 

Blockchain technology is what I consider to be a quiet achiever, and is subtly easing its way into the mainstream in many industry sectors that impact all of us in one way or another. Since my previous articles on Blockchain, we’ve seen an increase in the implementation of blockchain technology as now more than ever it has become a “time for trust”, as quoted by one of the big four auditing monopolies PwC.    

Without a doubt, Blockchain technology will have a beneficial effect on every aspect of business in the future, however, this is a gradual process that requires time and patience. Many traditional businesses are mindful of and watching this evolution, but sitting on the fence waiting for more examples of blockchain technology. Why?

Because traditional businesses will require more transformation when integrating Blockchain and will have to completely reconsider their processes to harvest the maximum benefits of this technology.  Meanwhile, companies with a culture of innovation lead the way into this new era of transparency and immutability. 

Although Blockchain was initially considered only suitable for banking, finance, and cryptocurrency sectors, we are now seeing the benefits in many other industries as well. Currently, we have a lot of solutions that are either in the pilot or beta phase or already being utilized in this enterprising way of not only keeping businesses honest but provides a range of benefits for the public.

 

50 Companies Already Using Blockchain Technology
BLOCKCHAIN 101

101Blockchains.com compiled a list of the top 50 companies across a range of industries as indicated in the infographic above, however, I’m going to add an industry that is at the forefront with a metamorphic influence and used by billions of people. It’s infiltrated our daily lives and increasingly is a way of life for communication, work, and livelihoods.  

Numerous giants in this industry have been in the notorious spotlight for misuse of personal data, political bias, and tampering, questionable algorithms to name a few. If you haven’t already guessed, yes it’s social media, particularly Facebook, and will probably be the last, if at all, to align themselves with a transparent, public blockchain for the benefit of its users on every level. 

Truth About FaceBook’s Libra

Even Facebook’s yet to launch Libra coin that has recently come up against regulatory pressure is a private blockchain (permissioned) that uses an access control layer to govern who has access to the network making it more centralized. In other words, validators are vetted by the network owner, unlike public decentralized blockchain where applications can be added to the network without the approval or trust of others, using the blockchain as a transport layer. 

The Libra blockchain would more likely be for financial transactions only and will not benefit from the network effect.  Nor would the issues of privacy and data harvesting be addressed, in fact, Facebook, which ironically banned ads related to cryptocurrency and initial coin offerings, has not said how it might use blockchain technology, so a public blockchain, by its very nature, could well pose a threat to Facebook.

Blockchain is a distributed ledger with data stored across a network of computers and rules that are enforced by its many participants. It’s the opposite of Facebook, which is a massive centralized organization that controls all the infrastructure underlying the 2.7 billion global users on its proprietary social network.

IMAGINE A BLOCKCHAIN FUTURE

Imagine…

Imagine a vast online network where we all hang out, chat, and buy things, but that’s not owned by Facebook, Google, or Amazon. That’s the vision many more people are seeing in blockchain technology as it becomes more understood. The companies using blockchain technology are actually securing their place in the changing ecosystem.

As 2020 comes to a close, there are now over 3 billion social media users around the globe using some form of social media, many are marketers, either for companies or in business for themselves. 

Blockchain technology as a foundation in social media will be able to solve the problems related to notorious scandals, privacy violations, data control, and content relevance. 

The integration of a decentralized blockchain ensures that all the social media published data remain untraceable and cannot be duplicated, even after its deletion. Furthermore, users will get to store data more securely and maintain their ownership. 

Blockchain also ensures that the power of content relevance lies in the hands of those who created it, instead of the platform owners. This makes the user feel more secure as they can control what they want to see. 

There are many upcoming social media platforms built on the blockchain, primarily used for sharing content through blogging and being rewarded with their native cryptocurrency. In my research, I’ve found some doing well, while others have tried and failed. Below I’ve outlined a few that stand out. They are each compared with a Web 2.0 platform or as close to it. 

SOCIAL MEDIA ON BLOCKCHAIN

Bitchute: is a peer to peer web torrent video sharing platform, predominantly funded by users’ donations and scaling memberships. Monetization including tipping creators’ content is handled by 3rd party processors via Bitbacker, Coinpayments, Paypal et al. The responsibility for payments are passed on to the user, not Bitchute. Primary user interests: politics, activism. Alexa ranking: 2,172. Comparison: Youtube.

Steemit: Steem blockchain-based social media platform. Earn Steem coin and Steem Dollars which is a USD soft-pegged asset to post, comment, and curate. Primary user interests: advice, finance, economics. Alexa ranking: 20,069. Comparison:  Reddit.

PeakD:  Underpinned by the Hive which is a new blockchain that originated as a fork of Steem. In February, TRON acquired Steemit, Inc., which allowed it to gain control over Steem. In response, several Steem nodes and users created Hive, introducing a new governance model that is designed to prevent anyone from gaining control over the blockchain.

Despite those differences, PeakD social media functions are very similar to those of Steemit. Users can post content on the social blogging platform, Peakd. Users receive HIVE crypto tokens for posting content and commenting on that content. Primary user interests: Blogging, miscellaneous communities. Alexa Ranking: 40,004 Comparison: Markethive Social Media Platform

Minds: is an open-source social media platform. You can earn Minds ERC20 tokens for contributions. Minds measure your contributions to the network on a daily basis and you receive a “Contribution Score”. They then calculate how much you have contributed to the network relative to the entire community. That determines the percentage of the Daily Reward Pool that you earn.

Users’ only receive credit for unique interaction, meaning you can only earn credit from another unique user once per metric per day. (eg. If a friend votes on my content 100 times in a day, I will only get credit for 1 vote).
Primary user interests: politics, activism. Alexa ranking: 11,591. Comparison: Facebook.

Narrative: is a user-governed social media platform for bloggers. Earn NRVE tokens to post, comment, curate, moderate, and own niches. Since its inception, some members of the Narrative community have incorporated and are negotiating a new platform with the aim to be reborn with a new platform name along with some improvements integrating to the new Discord server.  Primary user interests: n/a. Alexa ranking: 2,284,842. Comparison: Medium.

Memo: is a BCH blockchain-based social media platform. Earn BCH via posting. Data is stored directly to the blockchain, not the cloud, using OP_RETURN. Using the Memo OP_RETURN Protocol, the message you include with your transaction will show up as a post on the site. You can also use this protocol to like or reply to a previous memo.
Primary user interests: Bitcoin Cash, micro-blogging. Alexa ranking: 214,778. Comparison: Twitter.

However, According to Bitcoin.org the use of OP_RETURN is irresponsible in part because Bitcoin was intended to provide a record for financial transactions, not a record for arbitrary data. Perhaps Memo should build their own blockchain specifically for content and data.

SocialX: is a photo and video sharing blockchain-based platform. Earn SOCX crypto token rewards for contribution and licensing. SocialX is a community-driven social media platform allowing users to publish photos and video content. 

SocialX has created its own blockchain to tackle various challenges associated with blockchain-based projects including the decentralization of photos, video, and other media. 
Primary user interests: Varied content of a social nature. Alexa ranking: 2,223,697. Comparison: Instagram.

Indorse: Ethereum-based coding evaluation and assessment recruiting platform. Earn IND tokens for activity on the network. Primary user interests: coding, recruiting. Alexa ranking: 395,295. Comparison: Linkedin.

Markethive: built on blockchain technology, is a Social Market Network and much more than a social media or blogging platform. It incorporates all inbound marketing tools including SaaS, CRM, AR email systems, eCommerce, along with a digital media broadcasting platform. I am yet to find a blockchain comparison on the internet for Markethive. 

Earn Markethive coin (MHV) for every activity and engagement on the platform as a free member. Be rewarded for your loyalty while building your business online in a collaborative environment. Created for the struggling entrepreneur, delivering a sovereign platform so all have the opportunity to excel and prosper. Primary user interests: business, marketing, blogging, current news, commercial arts, entrepreneurialism. Alexa ranking: 3,152. Comparison: Marketo, Hubspot, LinkedIn.

Blockchain – A Real Differentiator 

Blockchain can be a real differentiator, a new technology with the potential to be a force for good, leaving centralized web 2 platforms behind with their tyrannical protocols.

Blockchain holds different meanings and use cases for different industries, with every industry being able to benefit from blockchain technology, however, by enlarge people still have limited knowledge of how blockchain can be a transformational change to all sectors.

Many cannot see beyond its association with cryptocurrencies and are confused about the differences between blockchain and cryptocurrency. A good way of understanding the relationship between crypto and blockchain is to compare it to an application on your smartphone. (e.g. Menulog or Messenger), and the platform on which that application is running (IOS or Android). Blockchain is the platform and cryptocurrency is an application that runs on the blockchain platform. 

The confusion stems primarily from the fact that the platform (blockchain) and cryptocurrency (Bitcoin) came onto the scene at the same time. The first time blockchain was recognized is when it took the world by storm as the technology behind bitcoin. When in fact, it was first conceptualized back in 1991 using the term “Timestamping”, which was basically an immutable ledger, long before Bitcoin.

More organizations are reassessing their operations as they do battle with the repercussions of the pandemic lockdown of 2020. It has accelerated many disruptive trends that will create entire new markets and displace others in the process. There is a shift towards new ways of working, communicating, and transacting online.

Trust Is Fragile

Trust is faltering, becoming an increasing issue in the digital world and organizations are clearly recognizing the importance of building trust with their people, customers, and business partners. They are paying far greater attention to the risks that undermine trust online such as fraud, data loss, or misuse along with many other forms of cybercrime. 

And in a more traditional sense we have all had to trust the institutions, middlemen, and the powers that be with our finances, documents, data, and the like, for decades, which has historically been the demise of society, even countries, almost becoming 3rd world. This type of trust will become irrelevant in the blockchain-enhanced digital world. 

A decentralized, immutable distributed ledger (blockchain) has been coined as a “trustless” protocol, meaning there’s no need for trust as in the traditional sense. Blockchain technology supersedes the old trust method, transforming into a “trustless trust”. 

 

An Emerging Technology Coming To Light

By integrating blockchain, organizations can build greater trust and transparency in areas such as certification, recruitment, commercial transactions, and the way they secure, share, and use data and content.

An increasing number of organizations are now seeing that blockchain technology provides an opportunity to change for the betterment of all, improving reputation, providing more growth and sustainability, build confidence, and propel any industry forward. 

 

Both Industries And Society Will Reap The Greatest Rewards 

PwC economists expect blockchain technology to bring benefits across a wide range of industry sectors and a lot of the value will be realized behind the scenes. This recent analysis in pdf format estimates blockchain technologies could trigger a $1.7 trillion boost in the global economy by 2030.  

They expect between 10% and 15% of worldwide infrastructure to be using blockchain within a decade with the biggest beneficiaries poised to be the public administration, education, and healthcare sectors. 

Also, wholesalers, retailers, manufacturers, and construction services will benefit from using blockchain to engage consumers and meet the demand for provenance and traceability.

There will be broader benefits for business services, communications, media, marketing, and advertising with the billions of users looking like winners with more of an equal opportunity to earn a living online. For ease, stability, and protection, blockchain technology will play a significant role in the next normal.

This Boring Project Will Turn All Other Blockchain Into Layer 2 Of Bitcoin

This Boring Project Will Turn All Other Blockchain Into Layer 2 Of Bitcoin

This Boring Project Will Turn All Other Blockchain Into Layer 2 Of Bitcoin
Whether you are a Bitcoin Holder or not, you would have to spend 5 minutes getting to know this project that may change Bitcoin’s future.

Suppose you are not only a holder, but also a Maximalist. In that case, congratulations, the Bitcoin you love is about to regain everything it has lost (for example, Bitcoin Dominance). BoringDAO is a project whose name may sound boring, but some of the most exciting work is currently going on. BoringDAO is a cross-chain compatible, decentralized asset protocol, and its most important product is bBTC (BoringBTC). They provide Bitcoiners the access to all the different Defi.

We Need Programmable Bitcoin

Even though scalability and safety allow Bitcoin to become the most popular cryptocurrency, a programmable Bitcoin is still what the community has long expected. The community is eager to use $BTC to participate in the MakerDAO’s collateral or be freely exchanged with other Cryptos in the Uniswap. There are already some pioneers in the ‘race’: WBTC & renBTC. According to the latest data (03/10/2020, https://debank.com/ranking/btc), the number of WBTC on Ethereum has reached 92,583, while renBTC is 23,855. Even though the TVL seems relatively high, compared to the total number of Bitcoin (18,505,343), it only occupies 1/154 of the total $BTC. In other words, even if the APY is 100%-10000% in DeFi, merely less than 0.6% of Bitcoin enters the Ethereum network through the above two gateways.

Why? The reason is simple: people need a safer and more decentralized way. In WBTC, BitGo is the only custodian. Since BitGo is the only institution that holds users’ assets, there might be a chance of a single point of failure. In terms of renBTC, they proposed a brilliant idea: renVM. But renVM are still in the sub-Zero stage; therefore, it seems that the team manages these Bitcoin at now.

What will BoringDAO do?

BoringDAO proposed a “double pledge mechanism.” Each Bitcoin is backed by more than 200% of assets, including one real Bitcoin (multiple reputable institutions manage Multi-sig). The approximately equivalent value of ERC-20 assets is locked in the contract layer (governed by smart contracts). There is no doubt that 200%>100%, so bBTC maybe much safer. Once the underlying assets of other wrapped BTC have issues, its wrapped token will be in danger. However, in BoringDAO, even if there is a black swan event, the contract layer provides an additional protection. Many people would ask: How about the capital efficiency of BoringDAO?The answer is high.

The secret behind is our Double-Pledge mechanism:

  • BTC holders deposit BTC to mint bBTC through the bBTC Tunnel.
  • All community members pledge $BOR/other ERC-20 tokens on the contract layers (100% Pledge ratio) to build a bBTC Tunnel.

Meanwhile, the BOR community and BTC holders will help each other:

  • Pledge providers can increase the Tunnel’s capacity, enabling more bBTC to be minted through the Tunnel. In return, they can get 70% of the minting fee & burning fee.
  • Pledge providers have access to the Boring Farm, which generate high yield.

It is Incentives that Drive the BoringDAO Business

The two incentives program, Mint Mining and Boring Farm, are uniquely designed for bootstrapping and providing a use case for bBTC in the early stage.

All Blockchains Can Become Layer 2 of Bitcoin

This “boring” project’s business is very smooth: the introduction of incentives and the fair distribution allow our community to grow and prosper while maintaining security. Moreover, not only on Ethereum, this model can run on more blockchains. In the future, Bitcoin will be obtained kinds of features through BoringDAO. If BTC wants smart contracts or enter the DeFi world, then enter Ethereum. If BTC wants high performance, then enter Tron and EOS. If BTC wants anonymous transaction, then enter blockchain with Zero-Knowledge Proof.

BoringDAO is the one stop solution to all demand! These end up with a spectacular imagination: all blockchains (Ethereum, EOS, and even Libra) may become Layer 2 of Bitcoin. Don’t waste your time arguing those guys who support a larger Block. Bitcoin should adopt the safest Layer1, and BoringDAO + Layer 2 will give Bitcoin the infinite scalability. BoringDAO is the infrastructure for the next Bitcoin bull run. With it, you can use your favorite Bitcoin to pay for coffee, as well as participate in decentralized finance without selling your $BTC.

Conclusion

Today, Bitcoin dominance amounts to 60% of total cryptocurrency market cap. This means just by Bitcoin alone, over 60% of crypto’s total market cap is currently left out of the Ethereum-led DeFi world, even with the help of projects like renBTC and wBTC.

After unsuccessfully battling The Guardian Australia to seize Bitcoin scam ads from appearing on its website,

Smith has alleged that the trustworthy media outlet has hosted fraudulent ads with fake interviews of him promoting a phony Bitcoin scheme.

Aussie Entrepreneur Threatens The Guardian

Impersonation scams are among the most perilous threats within the cryptocurrency community. Typically, the fraudsters impersonate a famous person and run false ads claiming that he or she has invested in a particular crypto platform that generates substantial returns. In the past, some of the famous individuals that had their names implicated included Elon Musk and Justin Sun. According to a recent report, a similar thing has been transpiring in Australia. The name of local entrepreneur Dick Smith, founder of Dick Smith Electronics and Australian Geographic, has been used in numerous phony success stories. The written interviews ran on The Guardian Australia with text that Smith had made significant ROI by investing in automated Bitcoin trading bots and urged other people to join “before it’s too late.”

Smith has been trying to fight off the fraudulent ads since the start of 2020.

However, as he has seen little-to-no success, he decided to threaten the major media outlet with a defamation suit. Smith’s legal team has requested The Guardian Australia to update its advertising algorithm to prevent such ads from appearing on its website again. The media outlet has fourteen days to provide a “satisfactory response,” or the legal team will push forward with

the defamation proceedings.

“While we acknowledge that The Guardian Australia does take the fraudulent advertisements down once notified, that does not prevent [its] Australian readers from falling victim to this prolific cryptocurrency scam.” – commented Smith’s legal representative Mark O’Brien.

A Victim Story Of This Particular Scam

ABC Australia reported the story of an 80-year-old pensioner who fell for this scam during the summer of 2020. When seeing Dick Smith promoting this service, the pensioner telephoned the number listed and agreed to invest the first $500. The scammers’ phone calls started coming more frequently and offered impressive returns if the 80-year old allocated even more funds. In six weeks, the unnamed victim transferred more than $80,000. However, he saw none of the promised returns and realized it was a blatant scam. The pensioner contacted his bank to block the account and the police, where he reportedly received an answer that they were too busy to help.
