Crowdholding Update: July 8th, 2020

news  
Hello Crowdholders,    It’s been a bit since our last update. As you know, we are making sure to keep servers running and maintaining the site. We also encourage others who want to use CH to get YUPs for posting.    As of right now our Alexa rankings maintain strong at 108K globally.     Founders of CH maintain side jobs while making sure our off hours the site keeps running.   Current Bottlenecks CH is a media application where the cost of publishing goes to the commenters/readers. CH entered the blockchain/tokenomics sector back in 2017 as a small market cap project. Looking back on it now, small market projects ended up going through some Catch 22 scenarios. Either use the money to build a product or spend it to get on exchanges. In order to stay true to our WP, building the product was the definite choice at the time. You saw the opposite done by some projects back then, which spent their capital to get on exchanges but then never ended up launching their products. All in all, focusing on the product was the best decision as we still run today. Unfortunately, though it hindered our ability to have YUPs more available. We added a buy YUP widget, in order to ease the process for posting, but still didn't bring the liquidity needed.  Our revenue model from our WP has us take cuts of the YUP transactions posted per project, but this form of monetization was under the assumption YUP would be traded. So we are at a stage to change our monetization strategy. Back in 2017, it was thought the popularity of Dapps would propel to use these new forms of currency, but in reality, this never materialized. It turns out, this form of finance is still difficult to use for the average user even 3 years later.    So what's our solution? Keep the servers running. We are set up to make sure the servers stay on and the product continues to have usage. Remember, you can only post by placing YUPs.   So right now we are starting our Author's program. We will be offering users additional YUPs to post tasks on subjects you find interesting or projects you want to showcase. If you are interested, please sign up here.    All you need to do is leave your telegram handle or email. Ethan will contact you for your qualification, then will make sure you are set up with a publishing account.   In addition, Ethan has put together some side projects as complementary to CH. You can check them out at CrowdLink and CrowdClick both were started from hackathons. Ethan's looking to create revenue streams from these new side projects in order to jump-start CH in the future and improve upon the model.    Thanks for reading!

The Defi Industry: Current examinations and issues learned from participating in a 30 day Hackathon

task  
  Defi (decentralized finance) is a rebranding reboot of the crypto industry using web 3 protocols. Today more developers are working in the industry than ever before. Hackathon.money had over 120 products submitted and hundreds of developers worldwide coming up with new inventions. It was exciting to see so many involved from just one event. This shows that there is interest and it will be exciting to see what involves from 2020.    But all is not a rosy picture. The current industry sector that is taking shape does have it’s issues though.    In this article, we will dive into issues the Defi industry faces.    Loan applications are making the most money   From the success of Compound, many developers in the space are looking to build layers on this financial instrument. So how does it work in Defi?   Let's say an individual wants to request a loan of 50 ETH. How it works is the individual must already have a savings 3X more of 150 ETH. They then stake this amount as collateral to the lender. With interest accruing, if you can’t pay back the loan, your stacked ETH goes to the lender. Determining the severity of what was lost, could lead to losing the majority of the staked ETH. So why take a loan you may ask when you’re giving up the same capital you already hold? Well, the reason people are currently doing this has to do with speculation. An individual basically added 50 ETH into their holdings with the notion the market will trend up. Thus if ETH goes up, you increased your expected earnings by having more money. The more people that do it, can also increase the value of the market. Why is this concerning?   If we hadn’t learned from the 2018 crypto bubble, then this might be our rude awakening. This approach to finance attracts those of us who are gamblers. Allowing people to lend, lend, lend while the market goes up, up, up. This is an example of a bubble in the making. Eventually, this will pop making way for a small minority of victors and a large majority of losers. What’s even more surprising, industry builders have to be knowing they are doing this. It almost seems the trend is, “a bubble can make me rich.”     Luckily this is only one segment in the industry, but unfortunately, it’s where a lot of money is currently being made.   Lots of tools taking the place as middlemen   The banking industry is looking eerily similar to the Defi industry. The original point of cryptocurrencies had to do with the peer-to-peer nature. It’s like handing a dollar electronically like you would do in person. You basically cut out the middleman. Third party players involved in the banking sector have a “job” in the network for when the money is moved. Thus why there are so many middlemen taking their cuts. Unfortunately this trend is now being replicated in Defi. Defi tools currently allow for a faster smoother implementation process in order to build web 3 protocols. However, these tools cost money. Some of the first businesses in Defi created tools to allow Dapp developers to build on their infrastructure. And of course a lot of these tools' revenue model is selling to Dapp projects B2B. This looks oddly similar to payment gateways taking their cut and other 3rd parties that work in the banking sector. Even worse, some tools charge you depending how many users sign up. This looks to be one of the causes that is hindering the use case development of Dapps to go mainstream.    Not all is doom and gloom though. We expect the industry to learn and developers begin trends to use free open source tools instead. In addition, we eventually will realize these loan models in crypto can't last forever. The hope is it won’t take us to another crypto winter to realize it.    Now for some questions.   Are we correct on our assessment? Or is there somewhere we might have been wrong?  Have any of you participated in any loaning applications in Defi?  What trends do you see that are positive in Defi?   Thanks! Look forward to reading the comments

Month of January Update: Growth stats and News

news  
  Hello Crowdholders!    Welcome to the monthly update where we will be showcasing some stats and news from the month of January.      Let's begin:    Growth Stats:    Our Alexa Ranking rose from 87,134 on January 1st to now at 85,294. A sixth month in a row with growth. The month of January was a slower month of growth than the previous months. This is most likely due to hitting a plateau from having a 0 marketing budget. In addition, being below 100K has us compete with web owners most likely spending on ads or other means to gain traffic. Thus, making it more difficult to gain in the rankings.        We had a total of 588 signups in the month of January which was 3 more signups than in December. CrowdClick Project Developing Closer with CH:    As you may know, Ethan and a new team are working on a side project that is being used to launch on CH. Since the crypto bubble pop of 2018, it has become difficult to get publishers to pay to use CH. We feel by incorporating CC as a client that will pay monthly YUPs to reward per task, we can jumpstart the YUP. CC is currently working towards a seed round and plans to budget for CH as it’s launch pad. By doing this, we can showcase CH’s value, which we believe could bring in new clients.     Joint Partnering the Telegram Group:   One plan in discussion is to unite CH/CC as one forum Telegram group. This creates greater outreach because of two products. Thus, the ability to get more attention. The partnership plans to unite both projects as complimentary products. Meaning, we can recommend publishers in one product to use the other product, including users. By optimizing and creating a two in one product telegram group, we see it supporting growth.   Could CH dive more into Media?    Pay to publish. That’s how media companies make revenue. Our system is built to reward the people who read the content and comment from a pay to publish model. Therefore, looking at it this way could have us position ourselves more as a media application that rewards the readers and commenters.       However, we need to increase traffic rankings in order to reach a point people pay for our use. So there is still work ahead. But by increasing our usage and attracting more paid clients, moving into this direction could be interesting. Publishers get feedback from their opinion or business they are trying to promote. And what better way to reward the users who read and comment. The model is there, the question is should we brand ourselves more as media in the blockchain industry?   Thanks for reading everyone!   Cheers,    Crowdholding Team

Month of December Update: Growth stats and News

news  
  Happy New Year!    Welcome to the monthly update where we will go over growth stats, recent news, and dividends. The month of December showed again traffic growth, our encounter with Google, and how we are improving moderation for spam comments.     Let's begin:    Growth Stats:    Our Alexa Ranking rose from 96,225 on October 1st to now at 87,134. A fifth month in a row with growth. You may notice a recent plateau with the traffic. This came from the holiday break where tasks were slower than usual. With tasks now going to pick up again week by week, we may expect these results to change.        We had a total of 585 signups in the month of December which was 14 more signups than in November. Dividend Stats   Our total YUP rewards given out was 350,600, thus 17,380 were given out in Dividends.   Results are the following:   Top 20 Leaderboard & 50K+ YUP holders: 38 YUP  250K YUP holders: 152 YUP 1M YUP holders: 760 YUP    Google blockage Issue   On January 2nd we were notified by Google that they blocked crowdholding.com URL by suspending our DNS server. After a bit of confusion, we discovered it had to do with spam comments. Although spam is fairly moderated among the newsfeed. Our old blog articles in our system had also built up comments that were not cleared.    After two days, Google reopened our website and we deleted all spam from the site. Thanks to feedback from the community on Telegram, together we came up with a solution to not allow “new users” to place links until they reach “Guru level” In addition, we gave more moderating rights to selected group of “Gurus” who showed the most high-quality comments and activity during the last few months. When 3 moderators report a comment it gets put under spam and is blocked from the task. If any foul play occurs, the blocked user can dispute it by reaching out to us.    We are still being watched closely and we do need to finalize the audit. So we will be working diligently to make sure we get it right.   Jarvis tokens will be distributed soon:   If you were one of those who participated in Jarvis tasks, you will soon receive JRT token rewards in your account. Below is the information from Jarvis to help you understand their process of distribution, stacking and what exchanges they are on:   1️⃣ The distribution of commissions to JRT holders: https://bit.ly/2QUE4ad 2️⃣ The JRT stacking: https://bit.ly/36juaoP     Useful links:   ✅ Info, volume, price: https://bit.ly/2MSaCAq   ✅ Uniswap: https://bit.ly/2QDT38i     ✅ Dex aggregator for JRT (best price) : https://paraswap.io/#/swap     How to stake and earn rewards? https://bit.ly/37vVpgi   Thanks for reading everyone!   Cheers,    Crowdholding Team

State of the Market. Will Ethereum by king?

task  
    Hello Crowdholders,    The market is hard to predict as we all know. With thousands of altcoins and many tokens being traded through speculation, we always wonder which projects are truly engaged with their development.    When we look at the top 100 tokens on CMC, the lowest market cap on that list is at $34 million. Out of these top 100 tokens, 41 of them are erc20 Dapps built upon Ethereum. By ranking the top 100 Dapp tokens built upon a governing blockchain system (not the blockchain coin itself), a staggering 90 tokens are Ethereum based.      These facts show Ethereum has a majority market share within the industry, but there is more striking information when you look at the number of developers active within the industry.    Within the opensource development community, Ethereum has 4 times more developers than the next eco-system, which is Bitcoin. Ethereum represents 18% of the total blockchain space with 1,243 active monthly developers. This was recently presented from a June 2019 report by Electric Capital.    Make sure to do your homework, but case in point, where developers go, sounds like where the market goes.    Questions to consider:    Will Ethereum continue its dominance?  Is there a blockchain you feel someday will rise above Ethereum? Anything you want to add over this subject?   Thanks! We look forward to reading your comments.   Cheers,  Crowdholding Team

Month of November Update: Growth stats and News

news  
  Hi Crowdholders!   Welcome to the monthly update where we will go over growth stats and recent news.  Keep in mind from our last update, dividend stats will happen every two months now. This will be showcased in the month of December update.    Let's begin!    Growth Stats:    Our Alexa Ranking rose from 129,803 on October 1st to now at 96,225. The fourth month in a row with growth. One thing to take notice, Alexa can be deceiving, as some companies can trick their rankings with fake users they pay for. This makes it even more impressive for us as we have a 0 marketing budget and can’t compete with websites that do that.       We had a total of 571 sign ups in the month of November averaging 19 sign ups a day a higher average than the previous month which was at 15.45 a day.    Our active returning users stayed relatively the same, however, we had a one week jump, which then returned back to normal.  You can see these stats from analytics in the image below.     Partnership with Crowdclick    We are happy to have partnered with CrowdClick, and the partnership has key components that will have both projects grow together. Have you read the partnership article yet? Free free to do so here.   If you have read it, here is a quick reminder regarding our collaboration manifesto:    CC will use CH’s widget to gather feedback directly on CC site    Future budget allocation from CC to purchase YUPs for tasks on CH starting December 2019   Cross-promotion of linked campaigns    Client recommended leads. Both CH and CC clients will be recommended to use both systems    Future API integrated features between CH and CC   CryptoTask showing as a promising use case on CH   Since CH began collaborating with CryptoTask, they have seen a steady growth in traffic and social media activity. In addition to the CH community supporting them on their Telegram chat.    Here is a quote from the CEO Ivan:    “Why we love CH? Not only have we seen an improvement with our growth stats, the feedback from CH has been crucial while we develop our MVP 1.0 release.”     So there you have it :)    Let's keep up the pace everyone!

Month of October Update: Growth stats and News

news  
  Hi Crowdholders!   Welcome to the monthly update where we will go over dividend stats, including some recent news. Without further ado:   Growth Stats:    Our Alexa Ranking rose from 178,326 on October 1st to now at 129,803. A third month in a row with growth.       We had a total of 479 signups in the month of September averaging to 15.45 a day.    Our active returning users also took a small jump upward as showcased from Analytics below, from the previous month of 2,537 to 2,825 weekly active users (ie. commenters, voters and readers). A nice jump with an additional 288 weekly returning users.      Placement of Adshares Ad on Mobile     Now on mobile, we have placed an ad on the newsfeed. From our testing, we noticed that we do not get many impressions even though our traffic numbers are good. This has to do with people using block ads or using Brave. We will test this more and see how numbers respond with the ad on mobile. As a reminder, once we have some decent revenue from ads, we will purchase YUP to support volume.      Dividend Results:    Our total YUP rewards given for the month was 135,100, thus 6,755 were given out in Dividends.   Results are the following:   Top 20 Leaderboard & 50K+ YUP holders: 14.7 YUP  250K YUP holders: 58.8.88 YUP 1M YUP holders: 294 YUP    Results were smaller this month due to the fact we had fewer tasks. We will push to increase these numbers with more tasks and publishers for the month of November.   In addition, we will make sure to display these results each month, but have decided to shoot out dividends every two months now. Thus next dividend distribution will be January.    CrowdClick working closer with Matic.Network & has been accepted in Aeternity’s Starfleet Accelerator    As you know from our last update Ethan and his development team won a track at the Hacktothemoon Hackathon sponsored by Binance. CrowdClick in a way is the little brother to Crowdholding where we plan to combine the efforts potentially through API’s or other forms of product integration. We are collaborating with Matic.network closely for affordable transaction costs using ETH in their side chain as part of their Grant program. In addition, we were accepted in Aeternity’s Starfleet Accelerator being selected in the top 15 out of 145 applicants. The week of November 4th - 10th we will be participating in Genesis Week, which is where they choose the top 8 teams to participate in their 4 week program. They then select the top 4 to receive investments. Wish us luck!     Thanks for reading and make sure to follow us on Twitter and Telegram!    Cheers,  Crowdholding Team

Fun hack: Using dark mode while navigating CH

news  
Howdy Crowdholders,    From the past, we had people asking for dark mode options when using CH. Those options are in fact available using extension or browser options to make any website you go on be in dark mode. In this article, we will dive into a number of hacks you can do to enjoy dark modes battery-saving benefits!   Desktop Extension   One notable extension you can use for viewing dark mode while on CH is the extension Dark Reader.  Dark Reader changes every website you go on into dark mode, but also allows you to adjust brightness and contrast along with Sepia vision and greyscale. You can use it with Brave or Chrome as an extension.    In addition, if you are a Firefox user, you can install their web extension called Dark Mode, which gives you similar features to Dark Reader.      IOS & Android Mobile   Unfortunately, Brave has not built their dark mode option yet. However, if you would want to navigate using Firefox (which the core team built Brave) you are able to select dark mode from the right bottom settings icon which they call ‘night mode.’ This allows every website to have a dark display.                           Google and Apple recently came out with dark mode options with their recent software upgrades, however, this is only for specific supported apps for now which limits your website navigating dark mode capabilities.    Did we miss something?   Feel free to let us know what hacks you do to enable dark mode on your favorite websites!   Thanks for reading!

Improving Instagram: What type of posts and strategy should we use?

task  
  Hello Crowdholders,    As social media channels are traffic streams, having an active and strategically adopted profile gets interest from viewers and can add traffic and conversions. One of the more up and coming social media is Instagram (ranked 6th globally for user signups at 1 billion) and is the quickest growing social media platform globally.   Another interesting factor is that very few cryptocurrencies have a strong presence on the platform, therefore we see this as a great marketing opportunity.                                                                                       Our current stats   During the early days, “Crowdholding” was the only social media handle we weren’t able to pick up. And to this day we still don’t know who owns it. During a bit of our rebellious branding period, we took the handle @disruptwallstreet. And have used it ever since.   Although slowly growing, it is an important milestone to reach 10K. As this allows swipe up links in your Instagram stories, meaning daily you can drive traffic to a website. (This feature is only when a profile has over 10K+ following).    Your task:    Take a look at our profile and review what we post. Then think of some ideas that will help us adjust and improve our Instagram activity and give us a follow!   Some questions to consider:    What’s your opinion on how we are running it so far?   Do you have suggestions on the type/subject posts to do in the future?   Any strategic suggestions?   Which if any crypto instagrams do you follow and why?   Also don’t forget to help the cause and start following our page! It goes a long way! Our link is https://www.instagram.com/disruptwallstreet/   We appreciate it!   Cheers,    CH Team

Month of September Update: Things are on the YUP

news  
  Hi Crowdholders!   We have had a busy September, we are beginning to see more and more opportunities while continuing our bootstrapping and moving CH further. Without further ado, let's get into it.    Growth Stats:    Our Alexa Ranking rose from 305,304 on September 1st to now at 178,326. The second month in a row with a significant jump. The most impressive aspect is that this is organic traffic as we are working without a marketing budget. All the groundwork in the past has given rise to a continuous stream that continually growing.      We had a total of 528 signups in the month of September averaging to 17.6 a day.    Our active returning users also took a small jump upward as showcased from Analytics below, from the previous month of 2,497 to 2,537 weekly active users (ie. commenters, voters and readers). With more traffic increasing we look to find ways to convert more returning users in October.     Placement of our first Ad banner on CH   We are happy to announce the testing of using ads on CH to help support the YUP cycle. We currently placed only one ad banner for this trial as of today (October 4th). As agreed upon with the CH community, all revenue coming from ads will be used to purchase YUPs to support and help improve volume.    We are collaborating closely with https://adshares.net/ who also use our CH widget. We are happy to support their ads and plan to keep improving our ad results with them as we grow and distinguish best placements. Expect more Adshare tasks on CH soon!        Dividend Stats:   Our total YUP rewards given for the month was 247,600, thus 12,380 were given out in Dividends.   Results are the following:   Top 20 Leaderboard & 50K+ YUP holders: 26.97 YUP  250K YUP holders: 107.88 YUP 1M YUP holders: 539 YUP    Aeternity’s Hackathon    The weekend of September 14th and 15th, Ethan with a team of developers won 3rd place at the Aeternity’s One Hackathon for the project Memehunter. Memehunter is a concept to develop a meme economy by allowing top meme curators to post their memes for small micropayments. You can watch the presentation here (please go to 9:08:18 of the stream to watch Ethan’s 6-minute presentation).     Update on Memehunter:   Ethan met and talked to the 3rd highest paid user from Memefactory’s leaderboard (would be a direct competitor of Memehunter). What he found out was that Memefactory in the beginning actually showcased a real use case with people buying and selling, but then an issue happened according to the user, “The decentralized nature of the application began accumulating high costs. Just getting one vote of many to get memes accepted was costing people 3 USD per vote. And the cost of minting the Meme’s was even higher. Thus, I started paying more and more costs and things just slowed down from there.”     This is definitely interesting to think about. Memefactory was onto something but looks gas prices just got too high. Which means there is an opportunity and market out there. So as a community we should keep looking at ways on how a use case would look like.    Ethan presented and attended the Aeternity Universe One     On September 20th-21st CH attended the æternity Universe One conference in Prague, Czech Republic. It was great for the first time meeting the Aeternity team in person with who we are closely collaborating with.    Ethan presented on day two where he talked about Crowdholding and our future collaboration with AE. You can watch the video here. Go to 6:10:33 of the stream to watch Ethan’s 20-minute presentation. We plan to announce our integration on Aeternity’s Blockchain next week so CH users will be able to withdraw their AE rewards from their ”account” on CH. So stay tuned!   Hacktothemoon (Binance sponsored Hackathon in Prague)      Ethan together with another development team participated in a Binance sponsored Hackathon on the weekend of September 28-29 called HacktheMoon in Prague. The project they built was called CrowdClick. However, no spoilers about it just yet, as they are currently waiting for the event organizers to release the presentation video. Once we receive this they will definitely showcase this new product idea for your feedback. As a highlight, Binance was impressed and their ending remarks on stage singled out the project as a “fascinating potential use case.” And Crowdclick won their hackathon track from building on Matic Network’s side chain. We will update you soon about it.     Thanks for reading everyone. Keep up the good work!    Cheers,    CH Team

Memehunter: Next steps and how you can help

task  
  Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,    Memehunter won 3rd place in the Aeternity Universe One hackathon where we received $600 USD in AE token to begin as our starting budget. In case this is the first time of hearing about Memehunter, please watch our presentation from the hackathon here, and go to 9:08:18 of the stream to watch Ethan's 6-minute presentation.     It has been agreed upon by the team, we will reach out to top meme creators about the idea, in addition to posting on meme community sites. If we discover, the community is open arms to the idea, we start developing, if not, we at least identified there is no market, and was a good learning experience giving it a try.    As an update to the model and idea. Our team discussed that we believe if we had a “Meme Guild” meaning a core starting group that are active and popular Meme creators, it would give us the best chance to get it going. This “Meme Guild” would also select more meme artists to join in the future. In addition, develop rules like, “has to be original content, has not been posted on the open internet from the meme artists ect.    Basically you can’t just have anyone post memes that they copy on the internet. Has to be a special group who are respected as original meme content curators. We should also consider having them be part owners in the project, asset holders, as they would be the driving force of making it work.   So how can you help?   We need to do market research and try to reach out to the meme community. In the comment section tell us what research you collected after you are done.    Actions to consider:    If you recruit a meme creator who wants to be part of the Guild, have them fill out this form. One of the questions on the form asks if a CH community member contacted them, here they will put your CH user name as a referral. CH will take note of all community participants, identifying them as a Memehunter ambassador. Thus, we make sure there will be incentives for being part of the project in the future if we discover a need and begin building.    We look forward to hearing from you all! Let's identify if there is a real market here.   Cheers,    CH Team

Dead Tokens Outreach Proposal: What’s your thoughts?

task  
Hello Crowdholders,    From recent discussions on Telegram, we’re happy to bring back the idea and move forward on a campaign that can help grow the community and bring more supporters to CH. This proposal dives into how the campaign will look like. And from your feedback, we can identify the ideal campaign to allow people who invested and hold dead tokens the chance to be part of the Crowdholding community.    So let's dive into it:    First, we need to identify the dead project we want to target. From our discussion, the most recent hot topic project that is currently closing down is Horizon State (HST token). They are closing down due to a legal dispute. Let's use them as an example of how the campaign would work. The idea is this:    Allow token holders of HST to trade their dead tokens for YUP plus additional actions.    CH company has a supply section of 19% of tokens for future use as identified in our WP and we can use some of this supply to give to these new holders. Click here to vote what % of the supply we should give if this campaign would happen.     Massive holders of HST must have a limit to how many YUPs they are able to receive. This limit needs to equate to:    % of HST ownership pertains to exact % of the YUP supply give away. For example:    If the community chooses 2% (for example) of supply to give away for the campaign, a holder who owns 1% of HST would receive: 89,000 YUPS, which is 1% of 8,900,000 YUPs   You can review the stats below:   YUP Supply: 445,000,000 2% of YUP: 8,900,000 YUPs 1% of 8,900,000 = 89,000   Actions to receive the YUP tokens.    Join CH telegram chat Signup to Crowdholding.com  Make a comment to an open task on CH Place public key in CH account settings Transfer HST tokens to 0x……………...   Once completed all steps YUPs will be sent to that users account on CH for withdrawal on a specified date.   This strategy we can in fact do for any dead token project. Some projects the founders are displaced so their community has lost out. Thus it would be “just” to do such a campaign. However recent failed projects we think it’s a good idea to ask for permission out of respect and choose to act on their wishes or approval. Helping fallen community supporters within the industry is a good thing to keep them engaged for the sake of Crypto’s future growth.   Also keep in mind, this should not affect our market cap because holders of dead tokens already lost who were holding for that project. As our market cap is low, it wouldn’t be worth trying to sell at such low value during this time period of development. It should, in fact, bring more interest to follow/contribute to CH.    Now for the questions:     What do you think of the proposal? Do you approve?   Do you see any tweaks we can do to improve on it?   We look forward to your feedback!   Cheers,    CH Team

Month of August Update: And what’s coming next for September

news  
Hi Crowdholders!   This update will dive into what has gone on during the month of August regarding growth, dividend stats and development, followed by the plans for September. Without further ado let's begin:     Growth Stats:    Our Alexa Ranking rose from 410,074 on August 1st to now 308,286. A nice jump as we keep moving upward in the ranks.     We had a total of 538 signups in the month of August averaging to 17.35 a day.    Our active returning users also took a jump upward, showcased from Analytics below. From the previous month of around 1,800 weekly active users who return (ie. commenters, voters and readers) to 2,497.       These growth stats are off a $0 marketing budget. To be able to grow this way speaks for itself. Our plan is to keep the grind going with growth while bootstrapping, at the same time establish future investment opportunities. In fact, we are breaking even on expenditures month per month now, allowing us to be alive indefinitely until a breakthrough occurs while continuously building forward.    ærternity Blockchain Integration    Since our meeting with ærternity’s development support on August 28th, we began the first steps for AE integration. This allows Aepp token and AE token rewards to be live on CH. In your account, you will be able to attach your ærternity’s public key and be able to withdraw the rewards directly. This is our first step of integration but plan to go even further in the future to utilize more of what æternity's blockchain has to offer. This is currently under development and we will make sure to keep you updated when ready.      We have been working closely in our partnership with AE Ventures and supporting CryptoTask our pilot project with them. Cryptotask (CT) has unique synergies with us due to them being a freelance system and ourselves as a feedback system. And we both are integrating with AE’s Blockchain. We are currently working on ideas to support each other's projects even potentially with the usage of API's. It’s been enjoyable working with them and we hope for a long-lasting partnership.    Dividend Stats   Our total YUP rewards given for the month was 350,600, thus 17,530 were given out in Dividends.   Results are the following:   Top20 Leaderboard & 50K+ YUP holders: 39.8 YUP  250K YUP holders: 159 YUP 1M YUP holders: 796 YUP    Although stats are a bit lower than the previous month, this does not equate to the rewards from AE which are currently virtual in people’s accounts. By counting that, total valued rewards were much higher.    What’s next in September?   CH will be attending æternity Universe One in Prague, Czech Republic. A happy coincidence as Prague is home to our project and we are excited to be able to participate. In addition, Ethan Clime will be speaking about Crowdholding and our partnership with AE Ventures, including what is in store for future developments within CH. You will be able to watch the live stream, so we’re excited to showcase it to you!    Thanks for reading everyone. Keep up the good work!    Cheers,    CH Team

æternity's Community Building Campaign Call for Proposals: How can CH help?

task  
Hello fellow Crowdholders,    Crowdholding will be applying to support æternity’s (AE) Community Building Campaign, which you can read about here. They are looking for ways to grow their community, and here at CH, we can definitely help.   Our plan is to bring trusted community members to earn AE tokens for helping with growth hacking. As you are aware, we are partners with æternity Ventures and are working closely with them. Today I would like to showcase you the proposal we plan to send on the æternity forum, after your feedback for improvements. You can check out other projects that applied here.    Below is the application questions and answers. Please review carefully and follow the questions at the end of the proposal:   ---------------------------------------------------   I. Title - must be clear and concise   CH Community Growth Hacking Campaign    II. Summary - a concise description of the campaign. Limit this to 2 paragraphs max, no longer than 300 words.   CH is a community feedback application with 1,800 weekly active users. We would be promoting this campaign within our community. AE lacks content on all the up and coming crowdsourced publishing websites that are gaining traction as alternatives to Steemit. Currently there are 94 free websites that can be used to publish æternity news frequently catering to your target user base as shown here: https://alternativeto.net/software/steemit/    How would it work? We would create a group of Publishers/Authors that would receive AE created content (which is produced frequently by AE). Next they would publish as an AE author. Each Author would be designated to specific sites. Every author would also be designated as a commenter under the article of these sites for which they don’t publish, boosting curiosity from readers. We then track using AE’s oracle and reward the actions in AE tokens.   III. Goals - clear objectives must be set, noting the target demographics and the call to action/conversions.   Goal 1) Recruit 10-20 Authors to maintain the system being lead by CH team.     Goal 2) Websites would be selected depending on their Alexa ranking which must be under 1 million in ranking.    Goal 3) Increase % AE traffic visits and wallet usage. Increase % - to be determined after analyzing more data   IV. Roles - team members involved in the project as well as their backgrounds and expertise, as well as any reviewers from the Board or the AE team who need to check output before release, if any.    Ethan Clime & Jonny Dee   Ethan Clime is CEO of crowdholding.com who led the building of Crowdholding and community from the ground up. Jonny Dee is an experience growth hacker for CH and the company Energi ranked in the top 50 of CMC.    V. Minimum Viable Products - list of final output   Increase % AE traffic visits and wallet usage by carefully seeing which sites increase most attention in traffic and growth from the growth hacking team. By staying flexible we can cater to what works and keep improving the growth hacking campaign.     VI. Timeline - how long will this campaign run, including preparations.   September:  Author applications. CH will hand pick community members to become an AE Author. We will recruit 10-20 of top applied candidates or selected community member from AE. Having members showing past active support to either AE or CH is a plus. Sites will be selected and Authors will begin signing up as users on those sites and will be chosen for which sites they publish on. In addition, be selected to what sites they comment on.  A shared database displaying actions will be used by the AE growth hackers to track their work. More importantly, showcase daily links where content is published to have quick access to the sites article and comment under the content thread. Community rules pamphlet will be created on the roles of an AE Author which they will follow as their guidelines.     October - July AE will send weekly content they publish on the growth hacking database Publishing and commenting begins Monthly group meetings to discuss results and improvements with the 10-20 authors (recorded conference call)     VII. Milestones - divide the timeline into achievable milestones. The budget may have to be released in increments as milestones are reached.   Keep in mind, some sites are about building reputation. So each month that goes by should increase reader activity and click rates from more actions done by Authors. The milestones are the following:   (%) - to be determined after analyzing more data Milestone 1) Increase æternity.com’s traffic by (%) each month Milestone 2) Increase base.aepps wallet sign ups by (%) each month Milestone 3) Increase Telegram community by (%) each month Milestone 4) Increase forum.aeternity community by (%) each month    This means each article needs a bottom footer showcasing all four links in a 2-3 sentence paragraph.     VIII. Budget - a clear breakdown of costs as well as the total cost   Although this will need to be discussed. The reward for the Authors on the time spent for work will need to be adequate. To be honest, time spent publishing and commenting wouldn’t take too much time, as the content is given to them. The only creatives from the Authors is creating authentic short/long comments that goes under the published articles.   Managing the growth hacking group $ to be determined equivalent in AE tokens each month for time spent, half of the amount buy’s our YUP tokens to be rewarded for future Aepps or AE related tasks on CH.  Growth hackers receive $0.50 USD (in AE) for each article published and $0.50 (in AE) for each comment.  Let's assume AE publishes 4 content producing articles a week and each Author has 5 publishing sites and 10 commenting sites. Time spent would be most likely 1 hour or 30 minutes of their time, thus 4 to 2 hours in the week. This means $30 USD per Author a week in AE tokens. If we have 10 Authors that equates to $300 a week (in AE). Thus, $1,200 a month in AE tokens to the Authors.    Estimated budget: $ to be determined a month in (AE tokens) or fiat used to purchase AE for this campaign.   IX. Assessment/Metrics of Success - state the desired end result and how they will be monitored and measured   The question is how can the AE Oracle work here as a way to track and distribute the tokens? This could be an interesting use case.    One option is to use affiliate links to track this, thus we need an affiliate link for each of the four milestones.    Or allow access to Analytics to observe how each site does to make appropriate actions of improvements.     By having a increase % for each milestone. Our goal from this campaign alone is to have a high increase in traffic for AE by July 2020, equating to (%) monthly increase.   Questions to AE admins:    Would it be possible to share analytical data for the 4 milestones? With these stats we can properly compare data from the publishing sites and identify the (%) goal. This would involve the following:    How much monthly traffic are you receiving from the listed sites from our milestone? How many wallet signups do you have, and what increase do have each month?    ---------------------------------------------------------- So from reading the proposal let us know your feedback. You can use the questions below to help.   So what’s your thoughts?    Would you participate and apply to be an Author?    Is the campaign clear, and do you feel it could reach good results as a strategy?    How could CH application be used more in this growth hacking campaign?   We look forward to your feedback.   Cheers,  CH Team

The Future of Currency. Corporates vs. Governments: Will we end up picking sides?

task  
Howdy Crowdholders, After reviewing the voting and reading some fascinating comments from the Libra WP task, we see truly a double edge sword. It’s clearly up in the air whether this will be positive or negative for the future of Crypto. Capitalism is all about competition. You may recall the episode in South Park “Something Wall-mart This Way Comes, where at the end the town burns down Walmart, vowing to spend at their local hardware store. Then it fast forwards and the local store becomes a corporate giant from all the town's spending. They then repeat and burn it down again.       You can ask any startup if they would like to become a Unicorn (corporate giant), they usually all say, “Yes!” So whether FB becomes a winner or other Crypto projects become the most successful crypto business, the outcome will be the same. In a way we have to accept this, as “burning one business down opens up another business to take its place.” Some say, the free market brings more power to the business world, which has given rise to less competition (mergers and acquisitions gone wild!). And a call for Government regulations to restrict the current market. While the other side says that restricting the free market, restricts the low barrier of entry for any person to start their own business. This would then increase costs and prices for a competitive market, allowing only large business to be able to survive bureaucratic red tape.    Let's now look at some recent news coming from China. As per  Bloomberg, China is on the horizon to release their own centralized blockchain Cryptocurrency, which clearly shows this Crypto play is about restricting freedom, not increasing it, as a new digitized cash can be tracked. Some can also claim FB is also restricting freedom as well, with only a promise that in 5 years they will fully decentralize their system. But from looking at China’s actions, it could unleash a wave of more Governments playing a similar game. But there is some hope, which comes from the economists, Friedrich Hayek.     In his 1976 book Denationalization of Money, his vision of an ideal monetary policy for currencies would come from private businesses issuing their own, and compete with each other for public acceptance. In fact, his ideologies now can be seen in today's Crypto market. The stability of the currency, would create the most trust through a mutually acceptable intersection between depreciation and appreciation. He even goes on in a reversion of the book, that it would then bring the survival of the fittest for the global best monetary policies… Bitcoin anyone? As you can see this is eerily similar to what is happening in the Crypto market we are in today.     The future looks to be a competitive one. One that may see a rise in power between public vs private. It’s going to be bumpy. But one thing we all agree from what we have seen from history, restricting freedoms both economically or socially brings forward oppression.   This task is about us all sharing our knowledge and distinguishing the world ahead. Are we looking into a future where we pick sides?    Look forward to your thoughts!

Crowdholding News Update (June & July)

news  
Greetings Crowdholders, Sorry for the late release! It’s been two months since our last update, so we will be combining June and July in this update. So without further ado, let's begin.    What you will find in this update is:   • Crowdholding growth stats June and July • Partnership Announcement • Dividend Results so far • Development updates   Crowdholding Growth   So here’s the breakdown and stats for June and July: 2,900 new users signed up to Crowdholding platform, which is an average of 48 users per day. 53 tasks were published on the platform 13 new projects joined the platform.   The growth stats are higher than in the previous months. In addition, our Alexa traffic ranking is on the rise as shown in the screenshot below. We are currently at our highest rank, excluding the time during our ICO.     During this time, we had 2 important article mentions/ press release articles that have boosted the awareness of our platform, you can click on the articles below and have a read.   Cardrates — “Crowdholding Empowers Blockchain Enterprises to Leverage Microtasks to Connect with and Reward Consumers” Article from AE Ventures — “aeternity Ventures announces a partnership with Crowdholding”    Partnership Announcement   On top of that, we partnered with æternity Ventures, the investment arm of æternity Blockchain, to support their Starfleet Accelerator Program. We have already launched two AE tasks on our platform and we have been collaborating with their invested Aepp CryptoTask - Freelance application, which has put out 3 tasks. It’s also nice to see both CH and AE communities interacting and we are excited for the future of the current collaboration.  We want to give a shoutout to the top 5 winners of the AE intro task who didn’t just earn AE and YUP tokens, but they will be receiving an AE branded Ledger Nano S for featuring their ideas. You can click on their names below and read some fascinating input from their comments.    Emmanuel Joseph Marco Walz Thomas Hofer Randy Tice Justin Kat   Dividend Stats   We initiated the dividend system back in May where we announced that we will be giving out dividends to YUP token holders every month. We are happy to showcase the current results from the past 3 months.    As a reminder, Crowdholding takes a 10% cut of any transaction on the platform, half of that cut is be redistributed back to our users. Below you can see how it works.   Total dividends = 50% of cut Total participants = YUP holders and leaderboard users 1 unit = Total dividends / Total weighted participants Projections based on current token holders: [15%] Tier 1 Group: >top 20 Leaderboard: 0.25 unit [6% ] Tier 2 Group: >50,000 YUP: 0.25 unit [18%] Tier 3 Group: >250,000 YUP: 1 unit [60%] Tier 4 Group: >1,000,000 YUPS: 5 unit   In the past 3 months, a total of 5% of the 1,334,000 YUPs was given out as dividends to our users. Below you can see the results month per month.   January: 280K YUPs; 25 tasks February: 200K YUPs; 31 tasks March: 150K YUPs; 22 tasks April: 500K YUPS; 32 task May: 500K YUPs; 30 tasks June: 380K YUPs; 27 tasks July: 454K YUPs; 26 tasks    Keep in mind, you will also see some altcoins show up in your profile from these dividends. It will be important to keep recruiting and improving the altcoin rewards on CH going forward.   Development updates   Some crucial developments occurred in regards to our admin users. In the admin console, we added a section called “get inspired by successful tasks!” This displays past successful task to allow admin users to know how to make similar successful tasks. As shown in the screenshot below:       In addition, we added premade tasks where admins can click to view or simply use and edit to fit their task needs.      This was an important development as it teaches the admin user the ideal tasks to use or create, giving more autonomy to them and a more automated result on CH’s side.     Lastly, we built a script that when depositing a minimum or higher of 0.1 ETH through the buy YUP button from the admin console. This purchases the YUP from the 'buy widget' and then stores it in the admin project wallet enabling to distribute rewards more simply for the admins using their personal wallet.    We also did some minor content adjustments in order to promote all businesses to use the platform rather than just blockchain projects. This allows us to attract projects who might not need to use blockchain but still want the benefit of using our feedback system.       We are constantly striving to improve the platform and increase our awareness, we will update you with what we will have been working more often! Until next time stay classy Crowdholders!

Finding Smart Money: Investment Research Opportunities

task  
Hello Crowdholder’s,    Right now, CH is at an interesting time in its development. The key to our survival during the crypto winter was limiting costs, at the same time of growing a stronger community by finding our use case. We all deserve to give ourselves a pat on the back. What is beginning to take fold, is we are seeing surviving Dapps now working on new fundraising rounds. This is primarily being focused on equity-based opportunities while they grow along with the crypto market at its current form.    In the startup world, there is a saying known as “smart money.” This means seeking investment where the investor has connections, experience in your field and matches your portfolio category of interests. Meaning, they have experience with our type of business.   In the current form, YUP is known outside of blockchain as a “credit system” model. In fact, being supported outside of blockchain could also make sense, as mass adoption means people don't need to know the technology behind it. Instead, you make a clear simple UX so people say, “it’s so easy your grandmother can do it.” This means that expanding from Crypto to all industries as a strategy for investment, also makes sense. And finding people who have the knowledge to do that, also is beneficial.       Our task is the following:    Look for Venture Capitalist fund/s that relates to the ideology of CH and would be considered as “smart money.” Think of the following questions based on your research.   Why do you believe this VC fund would make a good shareholder for CH? Does CH fit in their unique portfolio of businesses? Do they have investment rounds available or have a unique program?   Although we have our leads/favorites who we are speaking too, this will be helpful to get more qualified leads for us to reach out to and find our “smart money.”   We look forward to hearing your findings and advice.    Cheers,  Crowdholding Team

Qualification for moderators..?

task  
Hello Crowdholders,    As per our Telegram chat, it came to our attention that we needed to establish official moderator acceptance rules so together we can help with eliminating spammers in our ecosystem. We suggest, a high-level Guru rating to allow simplicity to the rule for future users to follow. Here is the breakdown of the ranking system. The number of upvotes the user receives determines the ranking:   Guru: 250 (upvotes)  Expert: 100  Senior: 25  Regular: >10  New user: <10    In the future, we’ll make gamification adjustments to give more perks to the user rankings. In the meantime, let's make sure moderation is safe, respected and secure. For our long term users too (who are seen and respected on CH) we would like to present the following rule:  Anyone with over 800 Upvotes qualifies and receives the moderator badge.   Here the list of users who currently hold 800 upvotes or higher:      Users who are getting close to reaching the 800 upvotes:      Moderation Rule:    2 moderators who report a comment blocks the comment and moves it to spam in that task.   If a user is identified as spam 3 times on a project they are blocked from that project If a user is blocked from 3 projects they are blocked from CH     Once this task expires and we review the feedback, we will determine the rule to go live!   Look forward to hearing your thoughts and if you agree to the new 800 upvote rule.    Cheers,  Crowdholding Team

What do you think of Libra’s White Paper?

task  
So here we are. Facebook, the data collecting machine. A business model that allows people to use Facebook for free in return for the utilization of your data. Although FB has other revenue streams such as ads & in-app purchases, the giant is looking to start a new model. This new model incorporates the blockchain where users can use ‘Libra’ an asset-backed cryptocurrency. People can access Libra by using Calibra, a wallet where you can exchange other cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum. FB is looking to collect revenue not by charging from transactions, but by gaining dividends/interest from their inflationary monetary policy. Whether burning or printing, each coin is backed by an asset that is bought when printed or sold when burned.    Their main value proposition is to be able to bring the 1.7 billion unbanked people of the world access to the financial system. Governments are concerned, as Libra could in fact grow more powerful than traditional fiat currencies. Could the pendulum now swing away from government monetary policies due to the accessibility from FB? It seems plausible in fact, as people would save money transacting Libra instead of using fiat banking technology which has been unchanged since the '70s.    Some say that FB is avoiding pure decentralization from the start as their eco-system of nodes are run by company partners, not by the public. However, in their WP they emphasize the need to do this first in order to improve their monetary policy before a global node adoption from the general public. In fact, they promise after 5 years they will take this route for their decentralized model.     So what’s your thoughts?   Do you see this good for the crypto scene?   Make sure to read their WP, and we look forward to hearing your thoughts!

Marketing Strategy Task: Attracting failed competitor's former communities

task  
Hey Crowdholders,   Today’s task we are looking for feedback on ways to increase our community. In this discussion, we will talk about how we can recruit past token holders from dead projects that had similar missions as CH.   We will start with our first idea and its pros and cons.   Many communities of failed projects were formed and now lost. Now these people hold dead tokens. What if their investment wasn’t a waste and could be used as a perk to joining the CH community? For example, let's look at the former project Cofound.it (CFI). Their mission was very similar to us. Their token holders became stakeholders of the projects in their ecosystem and they were supposed to participate by using their knowledge to help that project grow. Similar to us which focuses on micro feedback tasks. They raised roughly 15 million. That means they had a huge group of people who believed in their idea. And we are closer now to making the concept work and grow. So how to get these people to know about us?   One idea: Swap CFI for YUP. This would involve low % of supply from company pool, potentially a max of 10USD per person worth of YUP who hold CFI. It would involve signing up on CH and sending their CFI’s to us.   Pros It would expose to a new group of people and potentially our target group as it was a former competitor’s community. Thus bringing in more exposure.   Cons   Some of these people may want to dump their $10 USD, which could hurt YUP price in the short term.   This might not be the ideal idea. The question is for you:   How would you attract failed competitor project’s former communities? What channels would you use? What perks could we give here at CH to bring them on board?   We look forward to your feedback!   Cheers, Crowdholding Team

Month of May Dividend Results

news  
Hello Crowdholders,   This month we rewarded more than 500K YUPs and many other tokens for voting and commenting. This is about $950 worth of tokens, but also rewarded dividends to top leaderboard and YUP holders of min >50K YUP.   Today the first dividends were sent out for the month of May. You will see the reward coming in on your “account” profile as shown in the screenshot below.     A total of 5% of the 500K YUPs  was given out as dividends. Here are the results for the tiers:   Tier 1 Group: >top 20 Leaderboard(May): 78 YUPs Tier 2 Group: >50,000 YUP: 78 YUPs Tier 3 Group: >250,000 YUP:  313 YUPs Tier 4 Group: >1,000,000 YUPS: 1,566 YUPs     Although it’s fair to see the results are not big numbers, this is the first step to begin increasing this month by month. The more tasks, the better the volume. For those who are interested in past months total rewards given out, here is the list starting in January:   January: 280K YUPs; 25 tasks February: 200K YUPs; 31 tasks March: 150K YUPs; 22 tasks April: 500K YUPS; 32 task May: 500K YUPs; 30 tasks   Keep in mind, you will also see some altcoins show up in your profile from these dividends, but we decided not to showcase because these rewards are minimal. It will be important to keep recruiting and improving the altcoin rewards on CH going forward. Don’t forget about our BUY YUP widget on the newsfeed. Price is fixed weekly from CMC so you never know when you may find a better price to purchase YUPs and can upgrade your tier! If you are interested to place tasks as an individual, you can click here to apply. Thanks for reading and feel free to discuss the results in the comment section below.   Cheers, CH Team

Monthly Dividends will be sent out Monday June 3rd, 2019 (INSTRUCTIONS)

task  
Hello Crowdholders,   From internal discussion we have decided to send out the monthly dividends via the CH application to encourage past investors to sign up. You will then be able to withdraw (when you reach 500 YUP or higher) from your CH account.   So this is what everyone needs to do:   If you have not signed up on CH, please do by clicking “sign up” in the right corner.   Once signed up, place your public key from your erc20 wallet that holds your YUPs in your “account” settings. We will also be counting the amount of YUP in your account settings that you haven’t withdrawn as well for those earning on tasks.   Rewards will be sent out on Monday June 3rd, 2019 for May’s 50% revenue distribution. For those new to our dividend system, we take a 10% cut of all tokens in our app and now (50% of the revenue) from this will go to our community of YUP holders.   Here is how it will work:   Total dividends = 50% of cut Total participants = YUP holders and leaderboard users 1 unit = Total dividends / Total weighted participants Projections based on current token holders:   [15%] Tier 1 Group: >top 20 Leaderboard(May): 0.25 unit [6% ]  Tier 2 Group: >50,000 YUP:  0.25 unit [18%] Tier 3 Group: >250,000 YUP:  1 unit [60%] Tier 4 Group: >1,000,000 YUPS: 5 unit You still have until Monday (3rd of June) to buy YUP and access a higher tier! :)   If you would like to upgrade your tier you can purchase YUPs on IDEX or on our CH widget.     We are still analyzing your feedback from our task: Feedback on our new 50% Token Sharing System to YUP holders, so feel free to participate if you haven't yet.   In the meantime, do you agree with our approach of having YUP dividends given out via our CH application rather than doing an airdrop outside of it?   Thanks for reading!   Cheers, Crowdholding Team

[SPOILERS] Game of Thrones characters and story development challenge

task  
Dear Crowdholders⚔️,   many of us have been through glorious and painful surprises on the crypto ride. Game of Thrones, an epic show notorious for equally striking shocks as crypto, has just ended. Our adrenaline levels are still up and we’re missing all the expectation hype already, so we thought we could do with a bit of a therapeutical chat with our beloved community.   The ink is dry and it’s up to us to cash out our joy or disappointment. Over the cast of years we’ve watched characters develop, rendering them heroes, cowards, traitors, plotters, villains, lovers, more plotters… you name it. Their plastic personalities made us fly from hate to compassion or vice versa. Now that the show’s ended and no more twists are possible, we’d like to ask:   What is your overall feeling about how the story developed? Who’s your ultimate favourite character? Who is the character you think deserved more?        * * * * * Or maybe there are some imaginative souls amongst us who could come up with an alternative, perhaps more satisfying ending? Challengers of the status quo believing something went a bit wrong?  👉 You can also resolve this task by suggesting changes in strategies, story or character development since the moment Daenerys embarked the boat to Westeros. (Crowdholding team pick for when the story ending begins.)    Be sure we’ll expect your suggestions as if it was next season coming up! 😊   Stir the passions and take care, because at Crowdholding your imagination is appreciated.

Feedback on our new 50% Token Sharing System to YUP holders

task  
Hello Crowdholders,   Distributing dividends to the Crowd has been part of our mission from the start. This month we're launching exactly that. You can also read more about the benefits of YUP here. So let's begin:   Crowdholding takes a 10% cut of any transactions on the platform, and now, *half* of that cut will be *redistributed* to every person holding at least 250,000 YUP, every month! So the more activity on Crowdholding, the more benefit YUP holders get!   Oh, and in case you're one of the people with a mountain of YUP, anyone holding more than 1,000,000 YUP will get 5 times as much!   As via our telegram chat, we want to give you an opportunity for feedback and ideas regarding this new system. To start we want to keep this simple, thus we go with this system and review user feedback to make improvements at a later date in order for development to focus on the new user task feature.   One notable idea coming from Mc Ape from Telegram was bringing up the monthly leaderboard to be part of the shared revenue. This idea does make sense, as success in the application relates to YUP holders receiving our shared token cuts, which is connected to the activity of the users and admins for the product to grow. We would like to propose one minor change to the system to start with and from feedback potentially make improvements.   Thus it would look like this:   50% of shared token cuts goes to: Tier 1: >250,000 YUP holders & 20 top monthly leaderboard users Tier 2: >1,000,0000 YUP holders receive 5X more than Tier 1   We look forward to hearing your thoughts.

How do we build the washing machine?

task  
Hello Crowdholders, At first glance you might be confused on the question, but don’t worry, it will make sense soon! Our story begins in 1908, back when the washing machine was invented by Alva J. Fisher. The washing machine was a new product with a solid use case, because it saved people time they would otherwise spend hand-washing clothes. However, it required an electrical grid and infrastructure that was different and way more advanced compared to the one that existed at the time. So, swiftly, a new one was built, because money and profit could be made from selling washing machines globally. Why and how is this relevant to Blockchain? Currently, the focus in the ecosystem is mainly on infrastructure. Funds and effort is being funneled into infrastructure and protocols projects to allow scaling, efficiency and open the doors to mass adoption. Still nobody has invented a “washing machine” yet, there truly hasn’t been a use case or a killer application to make crypto-currencies and DLT truly go global. There are ideas, wallets, MVPs and crypto kitties, but they are falling short as dApps currently have less attention from big players in the scene. Here at Crowdholding we do believe the ideas we see today could mature and be the killer  use case of tomorrow. And they might as well come directly from users or be part of a crowdsourced effort! So let's officially open the discussion and start debating: What do you believe will be the “washing machine” of the near blockchain future? Let us know in the comments. Signing off, CH Team

New Year's Shills

task  
Hello Crowdholders, As 2018 draws to a close many of us will be happy that they made it through to the end of another volatile year and probably are indulging in retrospection, reevaluating some of their investment choices.

You can choose any cryptocurrency, from a project you are looking forward to in 2019 to one of the many ICOs you invested in that miserably failed! But what is shilling? Shilling means creating hype around a particular coin to increase its value and make as many people as possible think it will be valuable in the future. Enjoy the day and happy 2019, CH Team     Task Shill your favorite crypto-currency in a tweet! Be as creative and funny as you can, express yourself and do it in a way John McAfee himself would invest in it!

Share your opinion about the future of blockchain and get featured in our medium blog post!

task  
Hello crowdholders, We know that there are many crypto lovers here who are happy to discuss the best altcoins, blockchain projects, decentralization and other intriguing topics. And we also want to start some discussion rolling and even make a post out of it! We propose you to brainstorm a little bit and come up with the ideas about the spheres for blockchain technology to expand. Banking, insurance, and financial spheres are obvious answers, but could you come up with some unexpected, or even shocking opportunity to use blockchain? The best submissions will be used in our medium blog – on top of that, we won’t forget anyone’s contribution and list the names of co-authors in the post. This way we are all truly involved in co-creation! You should write about possible applications for blockchain technology, how you see this technology in 5 or 10 years, in which ways and in what spheres it can be used. Focus on not obvious spheres: for example, you can think about how to use blockchain in healthcare, environment, elections, or any other non-financial fields. Please write at least 100 words to be included in our medium blog post. If you have your medium username to tag you, share it in the comments as well. These are some inspirational quotes to go in the right direction with your thoughts. ;) “Bitcoin is just one example of something that uses a blockchain. Cryptocurrencies are just one example of decentralized technologies. And now that the Internet is big enough and diverse enough, I think we will see different flavors of decentralized technologies and blockchains. I think decentralized networks will be the next huge wave in technology. The blockchain allows our smart devices to speak to each other better and faster.” Melanie Swan, author of “Blockchain: Blueprint for a New Economy by Swan, Melanie (2015) Paperback” "Blockchain solves the problem of manipulation. When I speak about it in the West, people say they trust Google, Facebook, or their banks. But the rest of the world doesn’t trust organizations and corporations that much — I mean Africa, India, the Eastern Europe, or Russia. It’s not about the places where people are really rich. Blockchain’s opportunities are the highest in the countries that haven’t reached that level yet.” – Vitalik Buterin, inventor of Ethereum “Blockchains for all What are these enthusiasts on about? The ‘blockchain’ technology behind bitcoin could prove to be an ingredient of an entire new world of technology, as big as the internet itself, a wave of innovation that drives the middleman out of much commerce and leaves us much more free to exchange goods and services with people all over the world without going through corporate intermediaries. It could radically decentralise society itself, getting rid of the need for banks, governments, even companies and politicians.” – Matt Ridley, author of “The Evolution of Everything: How New Ideas Emerge” Tips are available.

A short video to identify people are real? What do you think?

task  
Hello Crowdholders! Our task today is about how here at CH we can "know your users" which we will call KYU. Lets ignore legality in this, but focus on how we can showcase all of you as "real people, with real knowledge." The idea is simple: Under your user profile we would make a feature to allow you to upload/link a video that will be displayed in your profile, which people can see or not see (depending what you want to lock in your profiles settings) The video can be about your bio, and what you're interested in or it can be as simple as saying, "hello crowdholders" being only a few seconds. This would unlock you to be able to participate in additional future features. Or In case people who do not want to do it ( to stay more anonymous), we could instead give you credibility points shown to the project owners which could have only additional perks of getting more rewards who participate in our KYU. So why? For clients who pay for tasks, it assures them crowdholding users are "real people, with real knowledge." Issues resulting in bounty's from other sites is the problem of fake accounts. And the thought is, projects will appreciate working with all of you because you have identified as a real person. End of the year we plan to build our gamification system, so this could be an important spec after we hear your thoughts. So here are our questions: - Would you create a fast video saying hello about yourself? - What's your thoughts of this KYU system? - Where do you see problems? Would people be reluctant to do it and it could hinder our user retention? We look forward to your feedback!

What do you think of combining the concept of a security and utility token?

task  
Hello Crowdholders,As you know, the YUP token has a utility cycle. Businesses buy YUPs to place tasks which get rewarded to the users. Thus, why a cycle comes into play. Users can liquidate tokens as disposable income with businesses purchasing YUPs to create tasks. In order for this to show significant results we have to keep increasing clientele and the amount of active businesses on our app. This is continuously growing on our application, so we are on our way, but it takes time. However, this may not result in an increase in price but more of a stable price as the system more reflects buyers matching sellers in it's perfect form.It's common knowledge to understand if there are more buyers than sellers, price goes up. CH is committed to the utility type system as it creates natural volume. But how can we spark more buyers than sellers? This could be through a hybrid solution by combining both a utility and a security.Lets look at the concept of royalties. This represents a share of revenue being paid out as dividends. In a traditional way of handing out royalties, a lawyer would create a royalty document where we place the name and address of the person receiving the royalties. They would also showcase us a bill with their name and that shows their proof of address. They then sign the document and then voila! You have a royalty agreement promising we payout a % of revenue. This doc can be used for every person we want to give royalties and they sign it, and our lawyer takes it with two copies, one going to us and the other going to the royalty holder. Now, when an investment happens for royalties, they need to send the money from their bank to the business bank account. The bank is required to do aml/kyc thus the transaction is verified and it's a real person. This is already organized on some exchanges (in a way replacing the bank process). However, when you look at IDEX where YUP is traded this is not happening. You just connect your wallet and that's it. So this is less of a viable option legally. So here is the idea we are contemplating for 2019.Our goal for the end of the year is to make December the first month we make profit. Right now we are close to break even with expenses and revenue each month. With a company goal to increase revenue by 20% this month and every month following. It's important to begin making profit before initiating revenue royalties to all token holders (if the idea is suitable and legal), so as a company we sustain our operational costs.Our lawyer would create a royalty agreement or better yet we call it a "revenue sharing reward agreement" allowing any person in the world to sign it digitally placing their name, address and uploading a proof of address such as a bill. For users like yourself earning YUPs this is easy, as you are not giving us money or buying from someone else to be a YUP holder. Thus, name and address we would assume is sufficient as you invested "time" not "cash." However, if a YUP holder buys from IDEX and wants to receive our "revenue sharing reward" this becomes more of a grey area. So your input on this matter will be valuable.We want YUP holders to be able to stake their tokens in our app and receive a share of our companies revenue. If you are a YUP earner on our app, you're ready to go. But if you bought from IDEX or our ICO, you would need to sign up and stake your tokens on our app. Dividends would be paid in ETH. This could be even paid out every month, quarterly or a half year (we would have to decide). The ETH dividends would show up in your profile to withdraw. Right now % of revenue we would give out is not yet determined. First, we are looking into how we can legally do this or legally bend the rules by inventing a new system. I see no reason, why we can not digitalize a traditional royalty agreement with an e-signature on our app, that would be the same thing as signing in person (if a YUP holder stake gives their name address and proof of residence (a bill uploaded).This is when you guys come in: What do you think of this idea? Would people hold because they want to earn dividends while businesses buy our token to place tasks, thus creating more buyers than sellers? How can we legally do this? I understand we could just use an aml/kyc plug in tool, but costs become associated with this towards our operations. Can we do it ourselves from what we proposed? Or do you have a better idea? Do you know other companies doing a hybrid security/utility solution? Please take your time, ask a friend who is a lawyer, even do some research. Keep in mind this would be planned and executed for 2019 by finding the best solution.We look forward to your feedback!

What do you think of our new Twitter share bounty?

task  
Hello everyone,We have begun testing out our new Twitter bounty sharing system. Where projects can share interesting links regarding their project via Twitter.You can check it out here.Project admins can place multiple links they want promoted such as blog posts, youtube videos or even their website in return for their projects tokens. Once the Twitter share bounty expires, the tokens get distributed out. If the project is in Pre-ICO and tokens are not distributed yet, it will be virtual until their smart contract sends out the tokens after ICO completion, which will be available and showcased on your profile page. Twitter bounty is setup very similar to our FB system. You can check this out below regarding details:  Based on their social media strength every user share is assigned to a number of stakes, which is used to calculate his reward all automated in the sharing system.1 stake/share100 - 200 followers2 stakes/share201 - 500 followers3 stakes/share501 - 1000 followers4 stakes/share1001 - 5000 followers5 stakes/sharemore than 5000 followersWhen the time expires, the campaign will close and users will receive a share of the reward based on their tier and how many shares they did.LimitationsEvery user can share the same item max 1 time per day, max 5 times per week.In case of low participation there is a maximum reward per userIt won't be possible to share articles when max amount is reached, to guarantee a minimum reward per user from the admin sideExampleThe campaign is set for 55,000 YUP token. 100 stake-1 users (less than 200 followers) share 5 items and 100 stake-5 users (more than 5000 followers) share 4 items. number of shares = 500 + 400, number of stakes = 500 + 2000 = 2500, 1 stake = 20 YUP token stake-1 users will get 5*20 = 100 YUP token and stake-5 users will get 4*5*20 = 400 YUP token. Thus, total reward for users: 10,000 + 40,000 = 50,000 YUP token campaign cost: 5,000 YUP token Go ahead and give the share bounty a try from the above link. Let us know what you think. Was it easy? Did you encounter any problems? Do you have any improvement suggestions? We look forward to the feedback!

Product Future: Could opening the doors to fiat be a target sooner than later?

task  
Hello Crowdholders!As you know, we are concentrating on connecting blockchain/crypto businesses to crypto/blockchain enthusiasts. But one thing we do know, that in time we need to open our doors to more businesses outside of blockchain, as a way to take on more markets and expand our outreach. In addition, this allows sales to target more leads as the crypto market only has a specific amount of leads which only represents 1% of the financial market. Although decentralization is the future and more and more will adapt to these type business models, it's smart for us to allow a fiat option. With the usage of Crowd Marketing (bounty sharing feature) and Crowd Wisdom (feedback task feature) The following order with accepting fiat for paying businesses would be:1) Non-crypto business pays in fiat2) Our product application function buys YUP3) Task reward gets distributed in the purchased YUPThis opens our doors to many more businesses, but we have to consider our user base is primarily crypto focused, so how would you feel giving feedback or sharing about projects not associated with crypto? Keep in mind we still will be recruiting crypto projects but this opens more doors for us.Also, if you are user interested to giving feedback to other companies, what segments would be of interest to you? For instance which business segments/industry would be qualified for using decentralized solutions first in your mind? Should we ever target non-blockchain Fintech companies who pay in fiat?We look forward to your feedback!

What exchanges that allow free/low-cost listing do you recommend?

task  
  Hello Guys, Recently on telegram we had a discussion about moving our token onto more exchanges. Ethan Clime wrote publicly with one of our stakeholders and the discussion was the following: Via Telegram: Stakeholder: “Hi @ethanclime I partly understand limiting the exchanges to help authenticate liquidity from CH customers vs traders but what do you risk by increasing the amount of exchanges that list yup and increasing liquidity from them? In my mind I’m thinking real project, strong team… A multi listing will result in higher visibility/usability and further incentivize believers to hodl? Ethan Clime response: “You make some good points. Right now we have one team in our company that supports businesses through services allowing us to keep runway afloat. In fact their sales will soon have us break even with our expenses. The rest of the team is focused on product and business functions. My fear is diving and paying for new exchanges at this time, which could result in not sustaining volume, has us get delisted from these exchanges and lose out on costs which I would prefer to use to speed up development and business operations. In addition, when we hit market fit and can scale fast both projects placing tasks and users, the yup cycle can bring our tokenomics in full bloom. Thus timing more exchanges at this time as well as a crypto recovery will be more beneficial to invest in going on more exchanges. However, we could spread ourselves on some free exchanges, but the question is, would free or very small cost exchanges do its justice and increase total volume of trading? Or would we waste time by having no impact? It may be worth consider trying this, but I would prefer keeping the focus to make product succeed for the future.” Stakeholder response: @ethanclime First, thank you for your visibility and transparency. Of course these are just ideas from the investment side and the interest of seeing the project gain more attention. ///would free or very small cost exchanges do its justice and increase total volume of trading? Or would we waste time by having no affect?/// I like the calculated growth, historically I’d say that the community is the catalyst and that if you can list on other exchanges (free or small cost) it does help validate the project at least in the eyes of investors or people that hold the coin. You already have a working platform which is light years ahead of many heavily traded currencies. I say if it’s free/low cost and credible exchange list it. There’s things out of our control, ie. market manipulation which can happen with every coin but you’re garner more of the long term believers, platform users like me 😉 that know this project has so much potential that it doesn't make sense to sale in the short term. Just my thoughts and thanks for your response. Best of luck and either way I’m along for the ride and happy I discovered this in it’s infancy. Ethan Clime’s response: “That logic makes sense, although can’t guarantee much speed on a listing strategy, I’ll look at capacity with my team and see if I can find some time to look into free exchanges/low cost to be listed, preferably DEX exchanges which I am more of a fan of. So I will keep it on my radar. Cheers.” So there you have it, we liked the logic of the fellow stakeholder thus this task is dedicated to making sure the free/low cost exchanges we choose are approved and looked into by our community. We don’t want to make a mistake on listing ourselves on a poor exchange. Thus vetting the list below from you all will be a great help and allow us to expand without coughing up costs as we need to use every penny to building our product. Crypto exchanges that allow free listing from community vote: Worldex (https://worldex.io/) Fyrus (https://fyrus.pro/) Ethfinex — CMC Volume: €5,029,782 EUR — (https://www.ethfinex.com/) Crypto exchanges with relatively low fees depending on a coin, business model etc: Liqui — CMC Volume €7,754,009 EUR (https://liqui.io/) Crypto-exchange (https://www.crypto-exchange.ws/) Coinexmarket — CMC Volume €1,020,560 EUR — (https://www.coinexmarket.io/) Do you suggest any free/low cost exchanges you might have heard about? What do you think of the ones we found, in your eyes do they look legit? We look forward to your feedback!

What do you think of our new FB bounty sharing system?

task  
Hello everyone,We have begun testing out our new FB bounty sharing system. Where projects can share interesting links regarding their project via Facebook.You can check it out here: https://bit.ly/2N5ykXW.Project admins can place multiple links they want promoted such as blog posts, bounty campaigns or even their website in return for the projects tokens.

If the project is in Pre-ICO and tokens are not distributed yet, it will be virtual until their smart contract sends out the tokens after ICO completion, which will be available and showcased on your profile page.Stakes represent your influence. It is determined based on number of followers and friends. With this system a share from one person with 1000 friends count as 5 shares of someone with 100 friends. In addition, your FB account must have a minimum of 50 friends/followers.List of stakes1 stake per share: 50 - 100 friends2 stakes per share: 101 - 300 friends3 stakes per share: 301 - 500 friends4 stakes per share: 501 - 1000 friends5 stakes per share: more than 1000 friendsWhen the task expires, the task will be closed and you will receive a piece of the reward based on how many stakes you received.LimitsEvery user can share the same item max 1 time per day and max 5 times per week.In case of low participation there is a limited max reward per user. The default is 1/1000 of reward. Also, there is a minimum a user will receive for each share. Therefore the task automatically expires if this threshold would not be reachable. The default is 1/50 of total reward.ExampleWe have a Bounty task with 50,000 TOKEN. We set minimum reward to 100 and maximum to 1000. Now, if only 20 people share our post (assuming each have just one stake). we only spend 20,000 (20x 1000 (Maximum reward). The rest can be used for other tasks.We can get maximum of 500 stakes (eg. 500 shares from people with 100 friends) in this example..Please try it out and give your feedback. For example, should we showcase maximum and minimum reward that can be given? Do you understand the stake system presented? What do you think of the layout, is it simple to use for sharing when you participate? We look forward to hearing your feedback!

New Product Feature. Part 2: What do you think of our new project page ranking system?

task  
Hello Crowdholders!From last week's feature push we included a new way to rank projects on the 'Projects' page. You can access this page by clicking 'Projects' on the top header in between 'Home' and 'About' or click here: https://www.crowdholding.com/project/ Some important changes have been added on our Project page. In the past, projects were ranked by the number of votes they received from their tasks. By default, projects are now ranked by how active they are. The more active the project is, the higher they rank on the page. Our algorithm gives weight through 5 main points. Below are the points and the % of importance: Amount of time spent since last task - 34% Average reward amount - 24%Has a live active task - 19%Number of comments and votes - 14%Admin responsiveness to users - 9%We also added a search function as well as a filter. You have the ability to filter the projects by selecting the filter option and choosing different sorting functions. Not only does this help the user navigate projects, but we also setup a notification system to reach out to businesses who are dropping or inactive for a period of time. Encouraging businesses to be active will improve and increase more content for users to respond to.Our questions are the following:1) What do you think of the 5 main points and the weight % we are using for the algorithm? 2) Is our weight % accurate or would you adjust it? 3) How is the filtering option? Would you use it?Any feedback would be great! We look forward to reading your comments!

What do you think of our Intro task concept?

task  
Hello Crowdholders,We’d like to run by a new task type we’re thinking of, as well as how can introduce new startups that join the platform to you. More importantly, how would you want us to let you know there’s a new startup? As of now, all new projects that join our app we write an article on Medium at: https://medium.com/@crowdholding, we also post this on telegram NEWS and Crowdholding telegram channel, Facebook and Twitter. In addition, a notification on the CH app. Our new Introductory task we want to implement the following:This task will be the first task created by the Startup once they join our platform. It will serve as a way to let you guys know the most important information about the Startup. (You’ll see it in your news feed - we could also add Filtering option for this type of task too). We don’t want to spam you with Notifications every single time a new startup joins (unless they are relevant for you which will come in later) so this seems like a good way to achieve that. We’re also planning on highlighting new Startups in our Monthly newsletter (Are you getting them and reading them?)In this Introductory task the startup will be introduced telling you the most important things about them like their Vision, Business model and Tokeneconomics (How is their Token used) and their product stage with links to their White Paper.This gives you a quick run down of the startup and you can gauge whether you’d like to follow them. Also, you’d be able to leave comments as well as rate them (1 to 5 - 5 being the best). You can rate them without the need to leave a comment unless you leave low ranking. This rating will be then displayed in this task.So to sum up the questionsHow do you want to be notified of new startups joining?What do you think of the Introductory Task concept?What do you think of the rating?And for fun, please Rate Crowdholding and optionally some other startup (eg. CH -5, Weeshing 4) and tell us why you chose this rating. There might be some tips for great ratings. We look forward to your comments!

Experimental Task: Get Rewarded for Reading Content and Researching Other Platforms

task  
Hey guys,We prepared for you yet another experimental task from our UX team.You will get rewarded both for reading and posting good content.Read the description carefully or you might be disappointed or marked as a cheater and we don’t want that. What are we dealing with?There was an increase of users and reduction of quality of comments we receive as well as increase of spammers and people trying to game our rewarding system.What is our goal with this task?Ultimately, we want to increase the quality of the content on our platform. Part of that is reducing spam, improving the experience of posting, reading  and upvoting comments, and reward quality work.This task will provide us with good input and it also serves as an experiment to test out one of the ideas.We already have plenty of intriguing ideas to explore on how to solve this problem and some even from our amazing community (you guys) that you posted in some of our older tasks. So thank you for that. But now we want something different...What do we want from you? We want you to research one platform that is similar to us and give us a detailed review of how they deal with Promoting quality content Incentivising quality contentDealing with content that lacks quality and people gaming the system(Spammers, Scammers, etc.)Read the rules for more details. (eg. there should be only one main answer per platform but we encourage you to discuss and add things that are missing)We suggest that if you decide to research a platform that has not been researched yet to post an answer as follows:“<Platform name> Post all the research replying to this post. Posting this I am also declaring that I’m doing quality research on this platform”Structure of the qualifying postStart with Name of the Platform so that anyone can see what platforms were already researched (see Rules for why)Then tell us in what way they are similar.And then start with what you found out with your research. The more detailed it is the bigger the potential reward.Tell us also how you think their approach might relate to or work on Crowdholding.Don’t want to post but still want to get rewarded?Find and upvote quality content. Each picked answer or comment that gets rewarded will also reward the upvoters (people who helped to bring it to our attention) from percentage of the reward for this user. However, you have only 5 upvotes available for this task. You will not be rewarded if you upvote more and you might be marked as a potential spammer.To illustrate this, let’s imagine a scenario where an amazing comment is posted 5 days later.This comment is hidden under someone else's answer so not many people read or see it. But there are 2 people who upvoted the comment. Now, as this comment was amazing it receives 1000 Yups. 10 % of this then goes to the Upvoters which is 100. And as 2 people upvoted this comment then each Upvoter receives 50 Yups.A small hint on how to benefit from this: Come to the task towards the expiration time and read through all the comments and upvote those that are good.Rules and RewardsPosts about Steemit and Quora will not receive any rewardThere should be just one main post for each Platform (Therefore, read before you post). If someone already posted about the platform you wanted to research then read through their post and let us know in the comments of their answer if they are right, if you agree or if you have something to add. Quality posts will be rewarded (tipped) in the range of 50 and 300 additional Yups and extra upvotes from our Team.Quality posts and associated tips with that post are determined by Crowdholding TeamThe Upvoters receive 10 % from the Tipped reward of the postsYou can only upvote 5 times max on this taskIf you upvote more, you will not be eligible for any upvoter rewards and you might be flagged as a potential scammer.If you upvote a comment that was legitimately reported as spam you will not be eligible to receive rewards as well and you will be flagged as a potential scammerThank you for reading everything and happy participating.Be creative.
