Blockchain And Decentralization Threatens The Tech Cartels

Blockchain And Decentralization Threatens The Tech Cartels

A great many people fear and despise consortiums because they monopolize their markets and crush rivalry. Yet, that is only a glimpse of a larger problem of the danger they hold.

The risk that tech conglomerates pose to the democratic society is not just about the costs they impose, it's the centralization of authority, information, and command over the public sphere and their capacity to employ this control over a developing number of commercial enterprises, particularly in the framework and innovations of things to come. The organizations mentioned here work as either syndications or oligopolies in their individual fields – Google, Facebook, Uber, Airbnb, Amazon, Twitter, Instagram, Spotify. They are all integrated.

It's becoming well-known that Google, Facebook, Amazon, and others collect our data to sell ads. Google will offer you free security providing it can observe you and use your data. There are flaws in technology which does render an insecure internet, however, it can be argued that it's the most powerful engineers that are the machinators to serve their own purpose.  You could say this is the business model of the internet.

Technology evolves so quickly, but there was a time when it was difficult or expensive to store our data and also because its value was minimal, however now that data storage is very inexpensive, it can all be saved. This is basically surveillance data (big data) and used by these conglomerates as it supports the advertising standard that underpins a lot of the internet.

While these companies continue to buy, sell, trade and store our personal data, it’s in danger of being stolen. What's more, as long as they utilize our data, we are in jeopardy of it being used against us.

 

Freedom Of Speech And Privacy Are Paramount

Although, as privacy, freedom of choice and speech along with the distribution and displacement of public data become more of an issue for us as a society, many are waking up. There have been visionaries, engineers, thought leaders that have been aware of the events that have affected democracy on a global scale.

People all over the world are hurting. They're scared, depressed, suppressed and confused. It's making people sick and although we live in the information age and can acquire whatever we need to know with a single click, a good many people are ignorant or in denial to what has been happening. It's also a case of who do you believe and trust!

As of the third quarter of 2018, Facebook has 2.27 billion monthly active users. These are users that have logged in over the last 30 days. All of them rely on Facebook to fulfill their needs, whether it be for personal, social or business. Imagine the magnitude of what compromised data and personal information would have on the individual and as a collective.

 

What Is On The Horizon?

We are entering into a trustless technology. We are moving away from centralized authority and domination that have ruled our lives in many aspects of life, particularly the internet. We are now shifting to a decentralized method of connecting, communicating and transacting globally.

With the onset of Blockchain technology across many industries, not just crypto, also Healthcare, Real Estate, Education and even Social/Market Networks, creates an opportunity for people to "get off the grid" so to speak. This is the answer to our fears and uncertainty. This is being seen as a natural progression or evolution in the field of technology and the internet that we have so readily become accustomed to.

The Blockchain solves many issues we as a community are dealing with. It offers the assurance of privacy and security by storing data, information, and activities across a network of computers, making it a decentralized distributed ledger. There is no centralized authority making rules and decisions that are not in the best interests of its clients. This allows transparency. As more industries utilize the blockchain technology the more entrenched it will become into our daily lives and we'll wonder how we ever lived without it.

This is intricate technology and really needs to be implemented at the company’s inception. If an established company with enormous stored data collected over the years tried to introduce the blockchain, the success of it operating at full capacity with stability and scalability is extremely slim.  As for the monopolies out there today, like Facebook and Google, they have collected so much data it would be near impossible to merge. So it would be fair to say that the evolution of the tech industry has rendered the oligopolies outdated with very little chance to be competitive in the new era of innovation which promises to be a fairer, more independent and transparent system for all.

 

The Next Generation in Social and Marketing Platforms

And it’s here! Markethive, a complete Social Market Network built on the Blockchain at its inception is kicking huge goals with an Alexa Ranking at already 26,600 creating a huge reach into the billions with its innovative technology. Markethive is an avant-garde Ecosystem designed specifically for forward-thinking business people and Entrepreneurs. With a user-friendly “familiar” Facebook-like look and feel, Markethive is easily navigated, being simple enough for novices while at the same time powerful enough for individuals or groups with advanced skills, knowledge, experience, and capabilities.

Of the utmost importance is that Markethive is a private network, is built on blockchain assuring security, privacy, and reliability from political manipulation. This means neither you nor your information is tracked or profiled, and your personal information is NEVER SHARED with anyone.

Markethive’s culture is not fixed. It’s a decentralized, autonomous, fluid environment which includes manifestations of intellectual achievements, social habits, innovation, music, literature, technology, commerce, and the arts. A central “hub”, albeit a “decentralized” platform, system and framework built using blockchain technology, is designed to encourage “reciprocal interchange” of ideas, knowledge or skills as well as providing for exchange, sales or purchases of goods, services and commodities. This futuristic model is here now and fully prepared for the future, truly representing a prime example of the next generation = Market Networks. Markethive has the road map and is the blueprint of where things are headed.
 

Conclusion

Blockchain has absolutely revolutionized the world and will soon give rise to a new era of the internet even more disruptive and transformative than the current one. Blockchain, or distributed ledger technology, has the capacity to produce unparalleled opportunities to create and trade value in society will prompt a generational shift in the Internet's advancement, from an Internet of Information to a new generation Internet of Value. It’s time to start embracing this niche.

How Can Blockchain And Crypto Improve Online Branding?

How Can Blockchain And Crypto Improve Online Branding?

Default Profile Page. How It Benefits You

Your public profile page is a multi-dimensional Communication Hub, Social Networks Hub, Back Links Hub, Resume, Images Hub, Video Hub, Accolades display, Your Groups, Your Blog lists, Tell a Friend and Friends Rank. This is an excellent way to brand yourself and your product or service.

 

Markethive Tracking Feature

Every aspect of Markethive tracks your incoming tracking and reports. This tracking is built into your Profile page, your blogs, your capture pages, your WP plugins, giving you virtual full data on all your assets. From the daily activity report, Geographic map of connections, Device type, Bounce rate, referrers, Keywords, and Social Networks traffic.

 

Monetizing Markethive

Apart from the Markethive and generic Capture Pages available as a free member, the Profile Page is also your portal to invite others to join and with just 3 referrals the system’s Universal Income activates. That means you are paid to use the platform within Markethive by way of a micropayment faucet system of Markethive Coin (MHV) already on its first of many Coin Exchanges including their own. Starting out at just a penny on its first exchange back in March of 2019, the coin is now valued at $0.17. As it is a Consumer Coin the velocity is poised to increase as Markethive enters full launch.

The Infinity Airdrop Matching Bonus of 500 MHV Coins on new signups is not available to free members, however, anyone who joins as a free member will be associated with the individual that invited them as “pending associates”, which means if you upgrade to Entrepreneur within the first 30 days, you will receive the allocated coins 100% or 500 matching coin bonus (MHV) for each of the people you invited. If you remain a free member, after the first 30 days, it will reduce by 50%, which is 250 MHV. It will continue to reduce by 50% for every consecutive month thereafter until your matching bonus is 10% or 50 MHV for the people you invite to join Markethive which will then be credited to you upon upgrading.

Our collaborative community is encouraged to “Tip” the newcomers (instead of Like – the thumbs up) upon joining Markethive, as a token of appreciation and welcome message. You see, if you tip someone for any reason, Markethive pays you for tipping them, so you’re never out of pocket. As a free member Tipping is automatically activated at the time of registering.

Resume Builder

Your Markethive profile page will also have an optional resume link. The resume builder is a multi-part system that builds your resume in sequence delivering in both HTML as well as PDF. Access to both files via your profile page is optional, that being private invite, friends or public.

 

A News Feed Like No Other

Coupled with the Profile Hub, the News Feed being nearly identical to other well-known feeds is easy to use. But unlike the others, we have replaced Likes with Tips, tips that allow you the option to give your friends a small token or coin of appreciation. Your News Feed is 100% responsive to any device; therefore your device web browser is all that is needed. Saving your phone disk space and assuring you greater security and privacy.

Notably, Search algorithms. You determine and orchestrate your algorithms. Not Markethive. You decide who and what you see on your newsfeed. There is no limit to the size of your friends' database. Your newsfeed is completely searchable as well with both your news feed preferences and search criteria covering literally hundreds of variables and options

 

Get Paid To Learn The System

Markethive is truly dedicated to your education, success, and sovereignty. This is why we have made the Inbound Marketing Platform free (Compared to Marketo that costs as much as $25k per month). We pay you up to 500 coins just for joining (called an Airdrop and often years later these coins become very valuable), pay you micropayments just for using the system after you have qualified by signing up 3 new subscribers (similar to faucet systems that pay out micro amounts of Bitcoin), and we also pay you for taking our tutorials (no qualifications required, just a Markethive Wallet and each lesson you complete you receive an accolade on your profile and coin in your wallet). How cool is that?

 

Summary

Markethive has built a system to empower the Entrepreneur, with amazing valuable Inbound Marketing systems integrated within a social network with multiple commerce platforms. All of this on a Blockchain foundation, which above all the other benefits, allows Markethive to pay its members, regardless if free or upgraded Entrepreneurs to engage.

We are focused on providing a Universal type of income for aspiring entrepreneurs. We believe sharing our resources with you as you build your business and seek to reach your goals, benefits all of us.

We welcome all to our collaborative world of the Entrepreneur, the Markethive, built for you, by you and with you.

The Next Generation Of Social Networks

The Next Generation Of Social Networks

Things Online are Changing from the way we know it 

Let’s face it things have changed in the Social media and Marketing space from as recently as 2 years ago! Back then it was easy to throw up a link on facebook, get quite a bit of attention and make money. Marketing funnels are not what they used to be. Marketing on Social media is not what it used to be. A lot of people that have been somewhat successful are now failing as their systems and funnels just aren’t working anymore and are struggling.

There is a massive culling going on right now and it has been said, it’s not the strongest who survive, but the ones that are adaptable to change. People that are willing to change and be open to technology and new concepts will not be left behind. It is extremely important to be focused rather than diversified and it sure helps to have all the tools needed under one roof.

All Social Media Web 2.0 has become problematic and serious issues are occurring on many levels…

  • The harvesting of data causing dismay among users. 60% do not trust Facebook with their personal information.

  • The Social Media system is being destroyed due to spying, tracking and deeming content fake or unsuitable for their agenda.

  • Closing of accounts and confiscating the user’s money if they don’t agree with what’s being promoted.

  • Shadow banning has become ubiquitous resulting in users leaving the network, looking for alternatives.

  • Notably, there is a systematic reduction of income of those who rely on Social Media as their source of income.

It is not delivering good results for Marketers who use Social Media. There are 10 top social networks for developing business. Facebook has fallen to No.10  and LinkedIn is right behind it at No. 9.

 

Social Networked

Markethive evolved from a previous social network pioneered by the CEO called Veretekk. It became a chicken or the egg dilemma, as automated marketing evolved into Inbound Marketing requiring the collaborative effects of a needed social network primarily of entrepreneurs. The Collaboration within Markethive vs the Conflagration found in Facebook offers a positive, constructive ecosystem. With the tools needed for marketing, most members embraced the collaborative effect of working on campaigns, projects, and strategies together. So a new but familiar social network navigation was built.

Based on the Facebook navigational design, the network was integrated into the SAAS tool dashboards and the commerce platforms and the first Market Network called Markethive was born. This means you feel right at home with a familiar navigational environment as you learn the tools and procedures to build a business and at Markethive you get paid to do so as well.

 

This Is The Next Generation

Markethive is the first Market Network with a collaborative social media interface. All the marketing tools, live training, and tutorials are free and included with membership. This allows entrepreneurs, marketers, commercial artists, and the novice to aspire and succeed in a fluid, collaborative and nurturing environment.

Markethive, built on the Blockchain, offers total privacy, transparency, and autonomy to all users. A decentralized platform in which all data is protected means…

  • compromising users’ data becomes impossible.

  • A meritocratic system negates being banned or suspended

  • Blogcasting and messaging cannot be tracked across the web

The Blockchain allows Markethive to produce its own consumer coin and rewards its members for engaging on the platform. This is by way of airdrops upon joining and a micropayment system. Markethive’s infrastructure facilitates…

  • A free marketplace where all artists and entrepreneurs can showcase and distribute their products, monetize and get paid without the fear of reducing or losing their revenue or Markethive account.

  • Protects the users’ against losses as transactions are done within the Markethive Platform.

  • A complete turnkey financial system within Markethive which enhances our economic velocity.

  • A free market media and content publishers with a reach well beyond existing social and market networks.

 

A Social Media News Feed

The News Feed being nearly identical to other well-known feeds is easy to use. But unlike the others, we have replaced Likes with Tips, tips that allow you the option to give your friends a small token or coin of appreciation. Your News Feed is 100% responsive to any device; therefore your device web browser is all that is needed. Saving your phone disk space and assuring you greater security and privacy.

Search Algorithms

You determine and orchestrate your algorithms. Not Markethive. You decide who and what you see on your newsfeed. There is no limit to the size of your friends' database. Your newsfeed is completely searchable as well with both your news feed preferences and search criteria covering literally hundreds of variables and options.

Privacy

Blockchain makes privacy and security genetic to the system. Markethive does not and cannot shadowban you, track you, or even ban your account. Only you can terminate your data and account because only you control your data at Markethive.

Stability

With the advantages of a distributed and peer to peer data, communications, broadcasting, and marketing foundation, the likelihood of a data crash, central server failure, hacking, political unrest are all heavily mitigated delivering an extremely stable platform for each subscriber on their own merit.

 

Conclusion

Things have definitely changed for Entrepreneurs and Marketers, in fact, everyone who uses Social Media in general. The most poignant issue is one of freedom of speech and privacy. Given the unscrupulous events of the recent past, people feel invaded, intimidated and restricted. Many are looking for alternatives. A few years ago, there were none, but today is a very different story.

Markethive is a full suite “Inbound Marketing” platform integrated with a full scale “social network” targeting the 800 million “Entrepreneur” global populations. This new revolution of the next wave of progressions is known as Market Networks, compared to the last wave of Social Networks.

All users have the opportunity to increase their brand awareness and financial status within the Markethive Ecosystem while building and monetizing their own private businesses.
