A look around the market: What’s going on with bounty sites?

Rewards

No YUP/tokens awarded

 

Hello Crowdholders, 

 

As Crowdholding comes towards reaching to improve below 100K in our Alexa ranking we notice a different trend from familiar bounty platforms which we labeled in the past as indirect competitors to CH.  

 

Although CH is a reward-based forum, which makes it different, in the past we have identified that our users also had been active on other bounty platforms. However, is this still the case? 

 

When we look at the top 3 indirect competitor list, their traffic has been dropping quite fast: 

 

Bounty0x.io (ranking) 265K

Bountyhive.io (ranking) 264K

Bountyhunters.io (ranking) 597K

 

For a time CH had trailed in our traffic ranking, but it looks the market for these bounty sites is on the reverse, leaving CH now above. So why is this?


 

Our questions to you: 

 

Are you using other bounty platforms these days?

 

Why do you think we are seeing a decline with such sites?

 

Has other bounty applications joined the market?


 

We look forward to hearing your input. 

 

Cheers, 

 

Crowdholding Team

so as to gather information from the crowd, and as such, i will say that a single tasks in crowdholding can generate up to ten tasks before the final stage of the project and also as the project goes on they can also get more customer review to help improve the project. A typical example of this is the brave browser and also the crowdclick project these are clear examples that crowdholding was built to last.

For me i will say this underlying foundation of crowdholding will make it last long, crowdholidng just need to do more to make the world know about it more.which make them forget about these things or the projects are just vaporware. No idea left these because of frustration  think these platforms are mostly focused on bounties only (as even their names suggests) while Crowdholding seems to have a much stronger and more connected community. There is an opportunity for users to interact through comments and it is even encouraged. Nowadays, I can usually recognize a lot of people from the comments if they are very active and somehow I get an insight into their personalities. It makes the platform more interesting and engaging. From what I could see on a quick glance, the sites you listed don't offer this.

I had put 100 dollars into bouty0x crowdfunding thing on republic.  The bounties are not available to Americans anymore and it isn't easy to see if Americans are allowed on any of them to make it worth going to the site.  I do use thier other service publish0x and it works just fine.

I think you see a decline in free tokens somewhat and many are not available to Americans

I haven't seen any new bounty sites recently

I have signed up some bounties , so many sites are closed in the middle and some bounties like cocoricos says they are not prefunded and  should ask tokens only to the project owners and they are not responsible 

I feel Ch is great and responsible & creates positive impact on users

Nope not using any other bounty platforms these days. User have to do all the tasks but they are unable to get the token becuase either they have to wait for a long time which make them forget about these things or the projects are just vaporware. No idea left these because of frustration

I've never found tasks or bounties on Bounty0x that interest me. I know they've had some good ones in the past but I missed them. But now it's very slim pickings and mostly vaporware projects that don't inspire me. 

Bountyhive website is not working right now so that could have something to do with that. 

I don' t have any experience with bountyhunters. Am going to look at their site now

For me, i will say 5that the under layi9ng principle of how crowdholding function is very different from the sites. for a bounty site once the bounty program ends it is all over for tasks from that projects but it is different for crowdholding, and since bounty campaigns are on the low the activity on the site will be reduced drastically.

in cr9owdholding a single tasks can posts tasks at different stages of the pr4ojecvts so as to gather information from the crowd, and as such, i will say that a single tasks in crowdholding can generate up to ten tasks before the final stage of the project and also as the project goes on they can also get more customer review to help improve the project. A typical example of this is the brave browser and also the crowdclick project these are clear examples that crowdholding was built to last.

For me i will say this underlying foundation of crowdholding will make it last long, crowdholidng just need to do more to make the world know about it more.

having done my little research on the other website i think that this is the main reason for this.

We desperately need that edit button. I had to ask Ethan to delete something I posted in error....He had to 'report' it as irrelevant to get rid of it....I wish a developer/tech guy could add that edit button.

The crypto market is very bad. New projects can not receive investment. That's why I haven't had a good project in a few months
There were too many projects in Bontyhive and bounty0x. It's pretty low now.
Your method is different. This is why your site is less affected by the number of entries.
There are tokens in Crowdholding that I have been waiting for months. Waiting for the completion of ico. That's why I look in and out almost every day :)

I don't use any platform mentioned in your post, but i will visit their websites !

Are you using other bounty platforms these days?

I didn't use any of the platforms you mentioned and I didn't even hear about them before. I am not using other bounty platforms specifically, although I am interested in the topic of rewarding user engagement in general. Maybe I will register and check them out to see how they compare to Crowdholding.

Why do you think we are seeing a decline with such sites?

I think these platforms are mostly focused on bounties only (as even their names suggests) while Crowdholding seems to have a much stronger and more connected community. There is an opportunity for users to interact through comments and it is even encouraged. Nowadays, I can usually recognize a lot of people from the comments if they are very active and somehow I get an insight into their personalities. It makes the platform more interesting and engaging. From what I could see on a quick glance, the sites you listed don't offer this.

Also, I think YUP is another big advantage for Crowdholding. It is great to have one unique crypto which can be received from every task. The other cryptocurrencies come more as a bonus for me but they are not my main goal. This way it is much easier to accumulate one crypto and to have some meaningful value from it.

I think a lot depends on the types of tasks required to complete for the bounty. For me it is great that voting and commenting is enough for most tasks (no need to download, share on social media, get referrals,..). The projects listed on Crowdholding are usually quite interesting and I love learning about new ideas and new technologies there. Also, for me it was very meaningful that Brave team posts here since I really like their project.

Has other bounty applications joined the market?

One application I've used which is similar to Crowdholding is Masmic. They are less about business-customers relationship and more about giving your opinion on any topic but there is a slight overlap in the business idea. Also the concept of voting on answers and rewards distribution is very similar. I have stopped using it since the topics there usually don't interest me and the comments are of much lower quality. However, I think they are starting to improve more on this field and they are also developing their own token.

In general, I think that platforms which reward for users attention and opinion are becoming more popular and especially in crypto world. It's not a disadvantage for Crowdholding, but rather an opportunity to grow together with the other platforms.

Yes Sara, CH I much more than a bounty program. There are so many projects featured here. And they all benefit fr out help.

1 month ago

A look at these other sites i say that they have a lot of difference between crowd holding and these, and it is mainly that those sites are usually for recruiting bounty hunters rather than look for just personal opinions from the crowd. and since these bounty programs are reduced there will be a decline in the use of the sites. And also since that, there are also fake bounties out there it will also lead to persons losing their interest in such.

another reason i think is that since bounty takes a lot of time and resources to do it might not interest or attract people who don't have such patience or time for that.

and also i think the engagement in those site have reduce also, once the activity rate in any site reduce, the site will naturally die a natural death.

Yups, I used all 3 platforms and all of these platforms now offer less than commensurate with the assignments not only that they limit the number of participants and even worse the tokens they give do not have the value (price) they promised at the time they began a gift campaign based on ICO prices

to exchange zero results, we even have to wait months to get an exchange and sell the token

1 month ago

Are you using other bounty platforms these days?

Basically, I use these mentioned platforms. However, there exist others. For me, the best platform to obtain benefits from my work is Crowdholding.

 

Why do you think we are seeing a decline with such sites?

The downtrend market is not favourable to use these sites. 

 

Has other bounty applications joined the market?

During the last few months, I have not seen any of these platforms that would stand out.

Good day! Yes, I have been registered on these bounty platforms for a very long time, it's more than 3-4 years, some of the listed platforms have just begun their work in the crypto bounty. Earlier, I participated in writing articles about the ISO project, and took part in social networks of the award. After a lot of fraudulent projects entered the market, and those who do not pay the reward for the done bounty work, many began to participate in such bounty platforms, because they do not need to do weekly reports, enter links in the table, etc. . But on platforms, over time, there were many scam projects. Now I see from these 3 projects, the platform is bounty0x. At the moment there are projects and tasks, replenished bounty host, and there are tokens that are traded on exchanges. But, I also participate on the platform: bountyhunters, at the moment there are some tasks. But bountyhive, although they always pay out tokens on time, there are no problems with payments or incorrect checks, but on their platform there are quite often scam projects whose tokens do not even go to the exchange.

Now I use the Buzzin platform, it is a young and promising platform on which there are already many users, many bounty tasks, and a variety of tokens that can be ordered for payment. On this platform, it is possible to choose the tokens that we want to receive on our wallet ourselves, and not just one option of tokens like on many platforms. Here you can participate and complete the tasks of the project at number 1 (let's call it Project Alpha), but if for some reason we don’t want to receive this token, we can get Ether or, for example, the Oduwa token (project at number 2).

I don't use other bounty sites. The bounties, relatively speaking, provide less reward for greater effort. On CH all I have to do is invest thought in things that actually interest me. There's also a sense of community here that makes it fun.

I did a quick and long search on those sites and i found out some things that I will say are different from crowdholding.

1. Those sites are bounty sites, whereas crowdholding is a crowd site where everyone has an opportunity to make an input in a project.

2. Since crypto bounty programs are on the low, it means that the use of those sites also will also reduce, since there will fewer jobs that will be available for them to do and thus also reduce in the revenue that will be gotten by each member of the site.

3. since crowdholding is kinda like an open-source site where many persons can come and participate in tasks of all kinds it makes it easier for more people to participate in tasks thus making it more user-friendly than the other sites.

now for the main questions.

a. i have used some in the past but I have not used any recently, I am only using crowdholding currently.

b. it will be simply because the projects and the engagement in those sites have also decreased.

c. i did some quick look around and i saw a network called SAPIEN, still doing some more research on it but i think that it might be similar to crowdholding.

If crowdholding continue at the pace together with their various partnership with various projects they will surely grow bigger and better.

I have subscribed to all three bounty platforms mentioned above (Bounty0x, Bountyhive, Bountyhunter) and still joining them for almost 2 years. In addition, I have participated in other bounty platform "Bountyhub" and "Buzzin"

I think the inclining reason of these bounty platform is not activate and give no more big interest they initially provided to the users. For example, Bountyhunter now only runs one (Bamboo) campaign, which is too monotonous. In addition, they haven't given a clear answer about the withdraw when to pay the coins even if I asked to receive rewards serveral times. So naturally, I don't want to participate any more, and the campaign doesn't seem to be activate anymore too. 

Of course, I don't know whether I can recieve the assigned coins (rewards) in Crowdholding by having done these tasks because I haven't applied for the coins allocated by CH. But for me, I'm still happy with the CH offering considerable interest and good results.

Don't forget to use your upvotes. You will earn from that too.

Hi, the only other bounty reward things i took part in were direct to airdrops of projects themselves. But since most of them either are worthless by the time you get the tokens or you get some to the projects own wallet and the amount was by far not enough for the minimum to withdraw , i got tired of leaving my social media account everywhere without any useful rewards. I tried airdrop app for a short time but  they couldnt motivate me enough to go on with it. I also got very annoyed by the fact many used a prehistoric forum to participate in bounties. Like come on, this isn't the 90s anymore, then i want the rest of that decade back too. Or perhaps even worse, telegram. a few hours not online and theres another hundreds new messages in each group to scroll back and check. The good useful stuff is hidden in all the spam lol. I dont have time for that.

The bounty sites you mentioned in the example i never tried, never heard of.

So now basically all i use is CH, and every now and then an airdrop or bounty when i get advised to do so by friends. But even those i forget to finish or hold on long enough to fulfill tasks. Simply because i dont have interest in making time for them. I'm very busy, 24 hours are too few to get everything done each day so i got to make priorities and CH is fairly high on the list. Not just for some earning. I just like the whole platform and the projects to choose from to participate in.People are nice, the team is nice.

Yep, Cent! But I haven't been quite active over the past month. Centians are tipped in US dollars. Personally I haven't been tipped before because I haven't posted an article over there. I do comment actively on other people's comments and that is what has given me the few followers I have on the platform. Cent is quite active, however, it's self-centred in my opinion. Everybody tries to draw attention to his/her work. I feel if a platform is like this, it promotes diversity alright but in terns of traffic, it won't be as much as one with a common goal like Crowdholding.

Most of these bounty sites are declining because of the above-stated reason. At Crowdholding, we all perform the same tasks at a time. If there's a task from PYNK, CannaCor, etc. all Crowdholders channel their answers and energies there. I think this improves keyword search and website impressions and overall helps the site to rank better. 100 Crowdholders clicking on a Brave task link will enable it to rank better than a site where 2000 people each post an article and receive no impressions. So yes, other bounty sites are declining because too many projects are focused on themselves, posting tasks with no one or very few people giving them the necessary impressions.

Just like other Crowdholders, I've partaken in a few bounties on bountyOx and they are guilty of this. Also, I haven't received some of my bounty tokens up till now. Too many projects just focus on themselves. PublishOx solves this problem by holding contests regularly where all Oxers participate in. 

With the way crypto projects and DApps are being built day in day out, I believe other bounty applications have joined the market but I don't know any at the moment.

I never used these mentioned bounty sites but I think the delusion is related with the crypto winter market.

The formula time spent x rewards was ever unfair but I believe people insisted because of the belief in a valuation in the future somewhen. Now it's more difficult to find these kind of optimistic people.

One of the solutions could be to find purposes other than became rich like a Bitcoin early adopter look like. Building a sense of community towards commons principles and strategies could be another way too.

Thanks and good luck again!

Agree, people should stop focusing on becoming rich without investments. That's only for a very small group of people, but a big group think they can do it.
For me the blockchain tech is more about privacy and stuff and see how it develops, and how DAPPs make people reinvent the internet. I am not materialistic, money is great to have, but i dont need it that much that i scrape the internet brainlessly and leave my personal data everywhere and even fill every KYC they demand without asking. Thats too stupid. But it happens.

1 month ago

I use other bounty platforms including the ones listed.

I think the decline is as a result of projects hosted. Most rewards paid to bounty hunters tend to have zero value later. I think the worth of rewards play a crucial role.

We have seen new entrants like buzzin, tokenbooster etc. And they are doing well.

Don't listen to me because of who I am, I'm nobody like everone else.

I tried using Bount0x before I joined CH. I stopped probably because the tasks take a long time to pay out and since they generally require more of a commitment in time and effort than tasks here that bothered me. I basically tried as a test and then wanted to actually get a payout before continuing to complete my test, but forgot about it and moved on way before I got a first payout. Also I got a warning from Twitter which I think was from sharing tasks on Bounty0x. I've never used the other two, and don't know of any newer ones.

One reason for such a decline may simply be because there are fewer new crypto start-up projects and less hype around cryptocurrency so less people willing to earn tokens that don't really have a value now but just may in the future. I suspect that this is the main reason, but its really a total guess.

They also probably got a lot of their users from the initial promotion at launch and have been naturally losing these, and have failed to promote themselves in any way to bring in new users.

I personally tried all of them, at first I was fascinated by the interface and idea of Bounty0x, but then I got disappointed, because it’s hard to navigate and the tasks are or just developer tasks or Engineer or other professional ones. The Bounty Network I can say it is kinda neutral, it is not a big deal, the same time I haven’t got issues with, only that sometimes is not working the web3 with metamask and just loads the page for infinite.

I regret finding out about CH so late, after the startup phase and I missed most of the rewards, they expired. But still this project seems to be the only one standing tall and I never experienced problems with, always runs smoothly, rewards are paid in time, tasks are more humane and well organised.

I always say, that simplicity makes a difference, at the end of the day. Clearly visible that CH team is skilled in human relations, because they were able to step into the hunters shoes and designed the bounty hunting process in a simple yet fully functioning way. 

All the best for the future guys, I am sure CH is going to be bigger and bigger as soon the crypto-madness will start.

Absolutely love Crowdholding! I have visited PublishOx, but very rarely. I did notice on PublishOx, you can only tip an article twice before it says you reached your limit. Pynk.io has added tasks where we earn points and I participate in that. I think, in general, rewards are low so people don't stick with it. Knowing we are dealing with mostly start ups, I don't think huge rewards should be expected. The payoff will be in the future if/when the company is profitable.

Lack of content, almost impossible tasks and little reward are the major reaaons for decline in those platforms.

Just a common Crypto enthusiast.. Wait crypto is not common it's special :)

A very well timed task by Crowdholding, and this shows you guys are keeping a close watch on the market regarding what do you users like and what they don't. This is the reason why I like your site so much and have decided to stick around.

I am active on Bounty0X as it has a very similar model as yours and I see following reason why Crowdholding makes me much happier compared to my experience in Bounty0x:

  • Active Tasks: I have observed that during last few weeks you guys are posting bounties very regularly this keeps users engaged, on the other hand Bounty0x has not posted anything interesting for a month. They have been quite dead since last few months
  • Transparency: Crowdholding is very transparent about what rewards you get, what kind of actions are to be done, when will the rewards be given, what calculation is used for distributing rewards. I don't see this on other sites like Bounty0x
  • Collaboration: Your model is based on user feedback and evaluating which was most voted. This is a clear democratic way. On Bounty0x there is no interaction amongst users. I personally don't like tasks which involve just tweeting something or liking a page on facebook. I prefer sharing my ideas.

You have looked at your close competitotrs but I will advise you to also look other platforms like Publish0x and Uptrennd that reward users in crytpo for sharing their ideas. They are growing very fast. I personally think it will be good idea if you can include a separate section for article bounties, it has a great demand and interest in crypto community.

Hope you appreciate my feedback! All the best to improve your rankings.
