Proof Of Concept Bounty Program

Proof Of Concept Bounty Program

We have been given a letter of intent. If we can show the mega power of Markethive building a recruiting machine for a particular opportunity issued by a certain wealthy entrepreneur, then he will fund us the revenue that will complete our last private fund raising campaign and fast track us to the end of summer launch. Are you in?

But I want to take it much further than that. You see, I am known for, on occasion, to break records in building huge organizations. I have always done this to help others, as I believe the greatest reward is to selflessly serve others. I believe in the concept of MLM, however, I also clearly recognize the horrid failure rate and I have many perspectives as to why this is a business that 97% fail at.

This is at the core of why I built and continue to improve what Markethive does and is all about. But that story is long, detailed and covers many decades of the history of Markethive. What I want to focus on here is the evolution of building record breaking organizations for the average citizen or netizen so to speak. Is that gender neutral enough for you?

In the business evolution process, and our preparing for our official public crowd funding launch end of summer, I met a dynamic angel investor, entrepreneur, who also engages in MLM occasionally. His interest is in fully funding Markethive. But he wanted to see Markethive prove itself, verify it’s ability, a Proof of Concept challenge. This is not uncommon in this industry and such a challenge is never backed up and rarely if ever followed through with.

Such was the case a few years back with Valentus. We answered the challenge and broke all the records, but the commitment to us was never met. Such as it is in this industry.

But this time seems different. The challenge was backed up by a letter of intent, simply stated, If we do this, He will do that (fund Markethive). Instead of just “doing that” we are building Super Groups to facilitate these challenges and our facilitating system to move this forward is being labelled Infinity Bounties.

We have already reached our first milestone with this campaign by fulfilling the terms of the letter of intent. But that is just going to be phase one. But there will be several phases with our goal to break records again with what has been termed the Prendergast effect.

I want you all to know, I have not taken a position in this deal. Nor has any principles of the company. We will be running this campaign, to drive the technology in our Super Groups.

Pay attention, because I will be building this out to break records and gain notice by doing so. This is what Markethive is built to do.

The future phases will be coming, after the letter of intent has been completed. So stay tuned, join the Super Group @ https://markethive.com/group/proof.of.concept

Easy Guide to Getting Free Crypto

What If I Told You You Can Get Crypto For Free?

One day, I woke up to new magical internet monies sitting in my online wallet:

These are coins I’ve never bought. How did this happen?

I soon learned that what I received was an “airdrop” – free cryptocurrency just for having the right crypto wallet open.

At the time of this writing, I’ve received about $100 worth of crypto from passive (didn’t do nothin’) to active (mildly headache-inducing) strategies. If you like free money, I’ll walk you through the easiest ways to earn free cryptocurrency.

These methods, in order of easy to difficult, are:

  1. Setting up online wallets
  2. Earning crypto from airdrops
  3. Playing with crypto faucets

Or if you’re impatient, jump to the end for the best-bang-for-your-effort options.

Method 1: Get free crypto with online wallets

Effort: minimal

A cryptocurrency airdrop is when a blockchain platform distributes free coins. To receive airdrops, you need a wallet associated with that blockchain.

For example, new crypto projects can leverage an existing blockchain platform like Ethereum to create tokens. Specifically, these ethereum-based coins are called ERC-20 (“Ethereum Request for Comment”) tokens. When the popular ERC-20 token OMG launched, as part of their promotion they airdropped OMG to anyone with an Ethereum Wallet.

Two caveats with this:

  1. You’ll have to have some non-zero balance of the main crypto (e.g. Ether) in your wallet to receive airdropped tokens (e.g. OMG).
  2. An independent wallet with private keys that you own (e.g. not at an crypto exchange) is necessary for this to work.

In addition to airdrops, having wallets with the major blockchains is handy whenever there’s a software fork – when a clone of the blockchain is created.

When Bitcoin Cash forked from the main Bitcoin blockchain, everyone with a proper wallet received a 1:1 equivalent of Bitcoin Cash according to how much Bitcoin they already owned (e.g. 1 BCH for 1 BTC).

This is why it’s important to move any Bitcoins you have from an exchange to your own web wallet; exchanges like Coinbase are great for buying crypto with dollars, but terrible for holding. It’s up to exchanges if they want to release coins from forks or airdrops to their users.

So what kind of wallet should you open up? Where and how?

Pro tip: go to CoinMarketCap and filter for “Coins,” then set up the official wallet for that coin:

You’ll notice that even when you filter for coins, there are hundreds of independent blockchains, and setting up individual wallets for each one is impractical. You can also explore this shortlist of blockchain platforms.

Here’s the simple option with minimal effort: just open up a MyEtherWallet (“MEW”). The majority of new tokens are built off of Ethereum, and MEW is the most popular and supported Ether web wallet which will maximize the chances of getting free crypto airdrops.

Just to summarize, here’s the low hanging fruit option:

  1. Open a MyEtherWallet account
  2. Transfer any quantity of Ether, e.g. 0.01 ETH from Coinbase into MEW
  3. Wait for airdrops!

^ Note that you can repeat similar steps with other blockchain platforms like NEO and Stellar

Method 2: Earn free crypto by hunting for airdrops & bonuses

Effort level: medium to high

You might now be wondering why companies even do airdrops in the first place. It’s a promotional strategy to raise awareness for their new project. Many crypto teams have a specific allocation for marketing activities, and airdrops is just one part of them.

Given this context, it makes sense that many new cryptos give away coins & sign up bonuses. Sometimes it’s just a matter of signing up with your email and a wallet address.

Other promotional bonuses can be earned through effort, such as reviewing a crypto project or signing up for their Facebook.

I earned free Badcoin by reviewing and supporting The Bad Crypto Podcast (which you should all listen to!)

Hunting for crypto bonuses & airdrops takes work, and almost requires you to be an early adopter: exploring ICOs, subscribing to newsletters, following crypto news.

But there’s an automated way to learn about + earn crypto bonuses.

It’s called Earn.com, a platform that pays you in crypto to read promotional messages from businesses.

How this works: sign up to join lists like “Web designer” or “Bitcoin buyer,” and businesses interested in promoting to these lists will send paid messages.

By far the most common paid messages are from crypto projects raising awareness about their own coin or ICO. Thus, Earn.com has become a streamlined interface to get notified about, and receive airdrops of new coins:

There’s a double benefit to using Earn. Not only do you get $1+ in Bitcoin for every message you open, BUT you also enlist to get free airdropped tokens:

The do-it-yourself way is to scour for upcoming airdrops on sites like AirdropAlert, but Earn.com is a much more integrated experience. You can save your MyEtherWallet address to join ERC-20 token airdrops, and the platform also provides a quick way to get paid out to BTC to a bitcoin wallet like Coinbase:

To get started, join Earn via my personal referral link.

Method 3: Earn free crypto with crypto faucets

Effort level: annoying, often low ROI

Crypto faucets work by distributing tiny amounts of cryptocurrencies for actions taken, usually by looking at ads, completing micro tasks or even playing games. Faucets share their advertising revenue back to the users in the form of crypto.

Big caveat: faucets require a lot of work and the ROI in terms of looking at ads for being paid small amounts of crypto many not be worth it.

With that being said, after scouring the web, these are the three most reputable faucet websites I’ve played with:

FreeBitcoin.in

Probably the oldest and most reputable Bitcoin faucets. FreeBitcoin has been around since 2013 and has multiple features, from offering its own wallet with interest, casino/dice type games and more ways to earn (or gamble away) BTC.

FaucetHub.io

One of the few reputable faucet sites with tons of options (games, ads) to earn multiple cryptos, from BTC to ETH to Dogecoin. Like many other faucets, you have to turn off your Adblocker which is annoying. A lot of other faucets also require FaucetHub account for payouts, similar to Coinpot.

Moon Bitcoin

The “Moon” chain of faucets are really straight forward: ads are displayed, and you can claim Satoshis (fractions of a Bitcoin) every 5 minutes. Easy peasy!

Coinpot

A “microwallet” service required by many faucets like Moon Bitcoin to deposit crypto earnings.

The easy 80/20 solution for most people

If you’re overwhelmed by the # of options, don’t stress. The best bang-for-your-effort option should take a total of no more than 15 minutes of setup time:

  1. Create a MyEtherWallet account.
  2. Create an account at Earn.com.
  3. Get free random airdrops into MEW, or get notified of new airdrops at Earn.com.
  4. Bonus step: transfer a tiny bit of Ether, acquired from an exchange like Coinbase, into your MyEtherWallet. Some airdrops require small amounts of Ether in your wallet to receive free ERC-20 tokens; do this step as insurance to get your free cryptocurrency.
  5. Join the Markethive Daily Faucet Group to work together daily in a web room with the Faucets. Markethive has a faucet, airdrop and bounty program as well when you join for free.

Only if you have time and patience on your hands would I bother with crypto faucets.

The Current & Scaling Problems Of The Internet Social Network

The Current & Scaling Problems Of The Internet Social Network

The problems

Social Networks violate privacy, promote drama, deliver endomorphins creating unproductive addictions and have not significantly changed since their inception, other than, increased manipulation, shadow banning, political agendas, deplatforming, and scandal.

Traditional Inbound Marketing platforms (Automated Marketing) are all centralized applications and are built as a single or limited partnership user dashboard. These traditional solutions are costly, cumbersome, difficult to understand and heavy to operate.  With a costly system that is difficult to understand a new member experiences isolation, frustration, and detachment.

Platforms like Hubspot and Marketo are advanced effective tools for gaining leverage in the Internet playing field. These tools give wealthy players huge advantages over the ordinary average entrepreneur struggling to gain a foothold in an increasingly unfair playing field. Inbound Marketing platforms cost between $300 (entry levels no data) to well over $25,000 for well configured, mature and data-rich systems.

eCommerce; Conducting commerce like Amazon, eBay, Shopify have steep costs to conduct transactions, bottlenecks, and restrictive rules. It is even worse on sites like Freelancers, Textbrokers, and Fiver. Making it difficult to communicate, preventing sharing contact information and forbidding phone calls, emails or chatting on 3rd party devices. These restraints stifle creativity, innovation, collaboration, and efficiency.

 

Data, Security And Privacy – GONE!

Personal data, data security, privacy are non-existent in today’s markets across the board from centralized systems, public corporations and social networks like Twitter and LinkedIn; Media sharing  portals like Instagram and Youtube; Discussion forums like Reddit and Digg; Bookmarking systems like Pinterest and Flipboard; Blogging networks like Tumblr and Medium; especially shopping networks like Amazon and Shopify and the list is long and arduous.

Look what happened to Alex Jones (love him or not) the first amendment was seriously bruised taking InfoWars down with Apple, Paypal, Facebook, Youtube, Spotify, Mailchimp, Sticher, Roku, Pinterest even Twitter engaged in the deplatforming*. Domain registries like GoDaddy joined in the attack. Your pocketbook is also part of this centralized control with Paypal, Patreon and Stripe leading the way of terminating accounts that do not align with their agendas. This centralized wielding of power should concern everyone.

There is a better and more effective way, that protects speech and also rewards or demotes accordingly to the communities’ discretion, not the centralized control of the hierarchy of the current services like Facebook, Google, Amazon, and Instagram.

* Deplatforming, also known as no-platforming, refers to a form of Internet censorship in which social media and other technology companies conspire to suspend, ban, or otherwise shut down controversial speakers or speech. Banking and financial service providers, among other companies, have also denied services to controversial activists or organizations, a practice is known as financial deplatforming.

The term deplatforming also refers generally to tactics, often organized using social media, for preventing controversial speakers or speech from being heard. Deplatforming tactics have included disruption of speeches, attempts to have speakers disinvited to a venue or event, and various forms of personal harassment including efforts to have an individual fired or blacklisted.

Deplatforming denies “freedom” of speech and is a new attack on the individuals' rights in general.

 

The Solution Is Imminent. Soon To Be Prevalent

The Blockchain

Blockchain lies at the foundation for serious change. It decentralizes social networks and solves management issues via the community (not top-down ownership control) and smart contracts.  Shadow banning, account termination, data mining, stalking and other privacy violations are eliminated by blockchain’s very nature of decentralization and distribution. 

Social Networks built this way give control on banning and connections on a peer to peer relationship (a meritocracy) whereas the individual has 100% decision on what to subscribe to, not subscribe to and ban. The subscriber controls their own data, KYC data, 2Fa login by their own encryption key unique to each member.

 

Inbound Marketing

Inbound Marketing platforms integrated into a social network and delivered via a blockchain for free like Markethive has delivered, offers an entry with no obstacles, community collaboration with campaigns and jointly supported effect. Inbound Marketing tools, such as capture pages, email campaigns, broadcasting become exponential in their power and far more effective in their results. All at a no cost to enter and modest upgrades for increased leveraged benefits, and no additional tools to be paid for. Becoming a member at Markethive delivers all the tools for free. Easy to use, with a paid incentive to learn in a nurturing powerful community

 

Commerce Platforms

Commerce platforms based on blockchain and a multiuser cryptocurrency open up the barriers between sellers and users. Basically, the Markethive solution removes all restrictions to commerce making a non-barrier marketplace a reality.

In the Markethive blockchain solution, all data transactions are peer to peer and encrypted so 3rd party surveillance or recording becomes impossible protecting the trading partners autonomy and anonymity from anyone outside the transactions.

 

News Media & Content Site

Markethive is a multi-dimensional, deep level linking dynamics, social organizational integrated system. Integrating Vast Social networks reaches, internal social network connections, unlimited interconnected WordPress blogs, the vast API news sites like NBC, Wired Magazine, Bloomberg, Western journal, Mashable and 1000s of other news sites, that continue to expand due to the power of your own Markethive network and the collaboration of separate Markethive groups all working in union with each other. The ability to register and assign your many social networks into the Markethive matrix produces reaches into the literal billions. 

So now Markethive is a highly competitive market media and content publisher with a reach well beyond existing social and market networks. After comparing only 480 other news media sites in terms of their social reach and followers plus Alexa ranking, Markethive sits at Number 11 with an Alexa ranking of 26,600 at present. This continues to drop daily as subscribers join the Markethive network. 

 

Conclusion

The new era of Social/Market Networks with Blockchain technology is at hand. Your personal data, freedom of speech, reputation, branding, and livelihood cannot be tampered with, stolen or confiscated at the whim of the oligarchs’ agenda or used for the bottom line profits for their shareholders. This is a safe haven to continue to work, get your message out, sell your product or service with complete autonomy and privacy.
