Crowdholding May Update | Posted 3 weeks, 4 days ago
Greetings Crowdholders,   Sorry for the late release! May was a very busy month for everyone at Crowdholding, here’s the official update from us in regards to what happened in May, so without further ado let’s get started!   What you will find in this update is:       •    Crowdholding growth stats from May     •    Dividends announcement     •    Development updates   Crowdholding Growth  So here’s the breakdown and stats for the month of May:   893 new users signed up to Crowdholding platform, which is an average of 28 per day.     31 tasks were published on the platform, which works out at one new task for every day of the month. 5 new projects joined the platform.   The growth stats for May are very similar to the growth stats for April, apart from the difference of the amount of upvotes / comments has increased by around 30%, meaning that users are reading other users comments and engaging more with the platform.   This month we had 2 articles / press releases on other platforms which has boosted the awareness of our platform, you can click on the articles below and have a read.    CryptoShib article - “Have you heard about the YUP? You should!” A Video interview between ViableToken and Ethan and the writeup of the interview.    On top of that we have added our widget to two other projects, which is increasing the traffic to the website as well. We will continue to add the widget to other projects to keep increasing the network effect bringing more and more new users to Crowdholding.    The YUP buy button so far has been a huge success. Since adding the button, we have had a higher trading volume this month with the button than the entire of 2019 so far without the button, we are expecting that this will continue to increase our volume especially with the market starting to pick up.       Dividends Announcement and payout Earlier this month, we announced that we will be giving out dividends to YUP token holders every month. Distributing dividends to the Crowd has been part of our mission from the start.   Crowdholding takes a 10% cut of any transaction on the platform, and now, half of that cut will 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 (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   A total of 5% of the 500K YUPs  was given out as dividends. You can see 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.       Development updates  Although the development team were mostly occupied with setting up the dividends, there were some changes to the platform.    1. Users can now be contributors    We have a new development on our platform. User can become a contributor to place their own tasks! This can be done by topping up YUPs in the new admin console.   You can do this by clicking on the “get listed” in the top right hand corner.      So far we have had 8 tasks from 4 different users and we expect this to grow in the foreseeable future   2. Admin top ups and Paypal.    Now you are able to change wallet addresses as there can be multiple admins to one project, this means that admins are now able to top up their YUPs and don’t rely on the initial address the YUPs were purchased with.    Also for ease, we added the ability to purchase YUPs with USD through PayPal.   We are constantly striving to improve the platform and increase our awareness, we will update you with what we will have been working on in June and the results! Until next time stay classy Crowdholders!

Crowdholding April Update | Posted 2 months, 1 week ago
Hello Crowdholders,   Here’s the official update from us in regards to what happened in April, so without further ado let’s get started!   What you will find in this update is:       •    Crowdholding's growth stats from April     •    Development updates   Crowdholding Growth So in the month of April we had:   860 new users signed up to Crowdholding platform, which is an average of 28 new users a day. 31 Tasks were published on the platform in April, which is  an increase of 33% compared to March. 7 New projects joined the platform.   Overall April was a similar month to March in regards to growth. There was a slight decrease in the overall number of signups, but there was more tasks, more upvotes and more active users than the previous month, so overall it is still positive. Also we hit a landmark of having over 100 projects on our platform, which is fantastic.                                 Also if you remember from our previous update, we introduced you to our new widget system that we will be implementing with projects on our platform. Since last month we have added another two projects that have started using our widget on their website. So far the results look promising as all three websites are bringing Crowdholding new users and traffic through the widget. We will continue to expand the amount of startups who will use the widget, increasing the network effect to our platform.   Outside of the online world, we attended Anon - Blockchain Summit in Vienna. At the event we met our buddies at CryptoMood and Cryptoshib as well as numerous new contacts in the blockchain industry. We had a great time making some great connections as well as spreading the concept of Crowdholding.     Now onto what we have been doing on the development side!                                                              Development Updates The development team have been very busy last month at Crowdholding, so lets show you what they have been up to in the month of April. What was accomplished was:   Improvements and optimisation of Frontend, SEO and analytics / tracking on both mobile and desktop, so the website runs faster, smoother and we are consistently tracking our SEO to improve our the ranking of the website.   Improvements were made to the userface, these were:   Admin replied banner - We implemented an admin responded banner so that commenters can clearly see their comment has had a response from the admin of the project. That way you can see exactly what impact you have towards the project!       Comment guidelines added into the text box - Now in the comment section box, you will see all the rules of the task before typing. Automatic survey button - A simplified way to start surveys on survey tasks.  User badges - Now depending on the amount of upvotes, you will be classified. Your badge will be shown next to your name in the comment section as well, we think that adding badges will create gamification and will make new users want to get that expert badge at Crowdholding!     Also we have added more skill badges to the profile. This means that admin users can tag users depending on your skills listed on your profile.     We have added a new search bar on the homepage, allowing you to search for a company, a tag or a category. Visit the homepage to test it out.     We've added a "Buy YUP" button to the pricing page / admin console. Now you have the ability to purchase our YUP token through this simple button. We believe that streamlining the process will encourage more people to buy the YUP instead of having to go to IDEX.   We have also been improving our widget as well and created a guide on how to add the widget to a website to allow a smoother transition between the projects on our platform and Crowdholding. You can read the guide here.   We are consistently striving to improve the platform, increase our awareness and improve the user experience on Crowdholding. We will update you with what we will have been working on in May and the results! Until next time stay classy Crowdholders!
