Good News For the Upcoming ICO Public Crowd Funding Launch for Markethive

The initial coin offerings (#ICO) sector is showing signs of an uptick due to positive investor sentiment, apparently spurred by the recent crypto market rally.

The data was revealed in a new report from token rating platform ICObench, shared with Markethive on May 25.

Providing data as of May 21, the report notes that the success rate of ICOs has increased, ostensibly reflecting a rise in projects’ quality. 85% of total funds raised so far in May reportedly belong to projects with a high (3-3.5) rating — as compared with 68% in April. 
According to ICObench’s data, the number of published projects in May has increased by 157 to hit 5,512 projects, with 287 ongoing ICOs and 140 upcoming #token sales expected.

The report notes that data for the total funds raised so far in May has been overwhelmed by the reported $1 billion initial exchange offering (IEO) from cryptocurrency exchange #Bitfinex — bringing the total amount of funds raised via token sales this month to roughly $1.075 billion.

As reported, an #IEO represents an alternative model of token offering wherein a centralized crypto exchange operates the sales and ostensibly vets both the projects themselves and prospective investors.

Aside from Bitfinex, IEOs from Economi and Poseidon each raised around $10.5 million and 2.4 million respectively, according to the report. The sum of all funds collected from the top 5 IEOs (excluding Bitfinex) so far this month hit almost $15.5 million.

Bitfinex’s major offering has resulted in May being the month with the highest total funds raised so far in 2019. In ICObench’s historical data — which represents May 2018 through May 21, 2019 — only May and June 2018 saw higher levels of total funds raised via token sales.

In terms of geographical distribution, the Brisitish Virgin Islands took the lead in terms of total funds raised, followed by the Cayman Islands. The United Kingdom contributed the highest number of ICOs — with 9 projects — yet scored only 7th place in terms of total funds.

As Markethive moves towards entering into the ICO race, we bring a working platform, an establish coin, an explosive Alexa rank, massive traffic, commanding SEO ranking, a great reputation, 4 years in beta and rave reveiws.

We are in our last private funding to prepare for a massive public crowd funding launch. Having already raised more than 1/3rd the funds.

The Final Private Group Offer

Alexa has broken through to 27,400, Membership subscriptions have risen past 12,000, 1/3rd of our projected funding has been received!

We have built a social and market network on the blockchain. Over 20 years of developing, 4 years in beta, now we are listed on an exchange and ready to come out of beta with nearly 10,000 members, an Alexa ranking of 30,020 over 50,000 followers on our social networks.

Markethive coin has increased in value from 1 penny $.01 to a dime $.10 in a short amount of time. The crypto Bull Market has returned and will continue to grow in magnitude for the rest of the year.
By summers end the growth of the industry should be staggering. Two well know protagonist billionaires agree, Tim Draper and Tom Lee.
https://markethive.com/group/marketingdept/blog/bitcoin-price-will-hit-4-million

This is one of the indications it is time to launch Markethive. After nearly a year with the new engineering firm and new engineers on the team, the platform is now stable and the next two months will be focused on bringing on many new upgrades, enhancements and new services.

The Offer.
What is an ILP?

The ILP is well defined in this article titled: What in heck is a Markethive ILP?

Buy $1,000 worth of MHV coin through our Markethive account (Markethive will transfer the coin to your Markethive account or your MEW wallet) and receive a .12 share of an ILP.

Buy $2,500 worth of MHV coin through our Markethive account (Markethive will transfer the coin to your Markethive account or your MEW wallet) and receive a .35 share of an ILP.

Buy $5,000 worth of MHV coin through our Markethive account (Markethive will transfer the coin to your Markethive account or your MEW wallet) and receive a .8 share of an ILP.

Buy $10,000 worth of MHV coin through our Markethive account (Markethive will transfer the coin to your Markethive account or your MEW wallet) and receive 2 shares of an ILP (one ILP and one shadow ILP).
A rotator: Plus earn an equal share of new ILP purchases in our official crowd funding launch of Markethive this summer (proposed)

Additional bonus: Existing ILP owners will also receive equal shares in the rotator Crowd Funding Launch and if you purchase an additional ILP via this offer we will double an equal amount of shares (not shadow shares) you currently hold.
ie: [If you currently hold 3 ILP shares, and purchase 2 ($20,000) new ILP accounts “receiving 2 x 2 ILPS = 4” 2 of your 3 existing ILPs will also be doubled. Giving you a new total of 9 ILPs.] 3 + 1 now equals 9!

This offer ends when 30 ILP shares have been acquired.  Several members have already taken us up on this.
Again if you do not know: What in heck is a Markethive ILP?

The following budget is what determined my decision to do one more private crowd funding before we launch our official Blockchain Crowd Funding and the Markethive Awareness campaign.

We need to raise the money to launch a huge ICO (like) public crowd funding campaign (AWARENESS CAMPAIGN) and need to raise $300k or more to make it a huge campaign. 60% of this money goes to launching our crowd funding campaign in June of this year. 40% goes to Markethive enhancements to prepare for the onslaught of new membership. We need to finish our Markethive.io site. It needs to be replicated. Our front page of Markethive is also getting a new face lift. And Markethive.net will be retrofitted as an ICO rating system

Summary:

As Bitcoin Surges, so will the Markethive Coin and subscriptions and paid services. Our timing could not be better. We survived the Crypto Winter and it is now time to go to the moon.

Bitcoin Surging 19% Only the Beginning, Halving Will Propel to Meteoric Gains
https://www.ccn.com/bitcoin-surging-19-only-the-beginning-halving-will-propel-to-meteoric-gains

Markethive is this hybrid symbiotic phenomenon. Unique, exponentially powerful and will be a major driving force in unbelievable revenue generation as well as widespread respected service.

A Case study: Let’s look at the Media Content suppliers for the Crypto media. They have very big traffic and they publish banners, press releases, sponsored articles, ICO analysis all for fees and many make over a $million a year. The tools they use are not unlike the tools we deliver to you in Markethive. That being said, it is not difficult to grasp the fact many Markethive members can build a similar success with our system like we are building for you @ http://aboutbitco.in/

Keep in mind, we have not promoted it nor finished it, but it will be no different than a WordPress portal you could build using the same tools found in Markethive

https://www.worthofweb.com/website-value/aboutbitco.in/

Markethive is a market network and these tools are equally commanded by each individual which means any member at Markethive could produce similar traffic and revenue because of Markethive but not by Markethive. It is the entire vision to empower our members to achieve great heights.

Markethive is this hybrid symbiotic phenomenon. Unique, exponentially powerful and will be a major driving force in unbelievable revenue generation as well as widespread respected service.

A Case study: Let’s look at the Media Content suppliers for the Crypto media. They have very big traffic and they publish banners, press releases, sponsored articles, ICO analysis all for fees and many make over a $million a year. The tools they use are not unlike the tools we deliver to you in Markethive. That being said, it is not difficult to grasp the fact many Markethive members can build a similar success with our system like we are building for you @ http://aboutbitco.in/

Keep in mind, we have not promoted it nor finished it, but it will be no different than a WordPress portal you could build using the same tools found in Markethive

https://www.worthofweb.com/website-value/aboutbitco.in/

Markethive is a market network and these tools are equally commanded by each individual which means any member at Markethive could produce similar traffic and revenue because of Markethive but not by Markethive. It is the entire vision to empower our members to achieve great heights.

The Markethive White Paper

Company Aims To Become ‘Amazon Of Sharing Economy’ With Blockchain App

Company Aims To Become ‘Amazon Of Sharing Economy’ With Blockchain App

A company is building a Blockchain-based system

to eliminate fragmentation in the sharing economy – and creating a single app that gives users access to “any available asset they wish to rent, borrow or share.” ShareRing claims the current market is extremely inconvenient for consumers. Although thousands of companies exist, many of them are specialized in one particular niche, such as caravans or office space. This forces users to go through the arduous process of registering multiple accounts – and, given the fact that some of these small businesses only operate in a heavily localized area, there’s no guarantee that the items they need to borrow will be available where they live.

The Australian company has the goal of becoming the “Amazon of the sharing economy,” enabling users to lease “assets” from a broad range of categories through a single smartphone app. They would be connected to individuals nearby who have items they are willing to share, while rental companies would be able to develop their own “mini” app within ShareRing to reach greater numbers of prospective customers. ShareRing is already exploring deals with big brands, and the latest partnerships will be announced on its website.

In its white paper, the company lists areas where its technology could prove useful. Some examples include renting cars, trucks and trailers, as well as booking delivery drivers, sharing gardens, swapping books, co-housing, car sharing and social dining. ShareRing’s Blockchain platform, known as ShareLedger, is already in development. “Highly customizable” smart contracts will be used to complete transactions, with the company stressing that typical users are not going to require advanced technical knowledge in order to use the platform.

“Taking things to the next level”

The team behind ShareRing already have experience in this industry after starting the vehicle-sharing brand Keaz in the middle of 2013. Offering solutions for both corporate users and consumers, the company now has offices in five countries – and its main technology, KeazACCESS, was launched in May 2015. Executives say they have “decided to take things to the next level” through Blockchain because a company is yet to help this industry achieve its full potential. Their white paper argues that most people are even unable to name five businesses operating within the sharing economy – and the two examples most commonly used as answers, Airbnb and Uber, only cover two types of assets available to the public.

ShareLedger is also going to feature a dual token mechanism. Whereas SharePay is the currency that customers will use to rent assets, ShareToken allows providers to pay for access to the Blockchain. All users will be able to access their balances for these tokens in a lightweight wallet accessible from PCs and smartphones. “Small transaction fees” are charged to providers who use ShareRing. There are one-off charges whenever individuals or businesses add an asset to the platform. Providers are also charged if “attributes” need to be added, allowing extra bits of information such as a Vehicle Identification Number to be linked to the asset. Finally, they will pay a fee every time their asset is rented out to a ShareRing user.

Growing the ecosystem

At the heart of ShareRing’s system will be a “clever, integrated app” which uses geolocation to show users which services are available nearby – and within two years, the company hopes that up to 1 mln assets will be available to share around the world. Its Blockchain system will be publicly available by Sept. 2018, and KeazACCESS will be the first “client” integrated into ShareLedger. ShareRing’s token sharing event is set to take place in May, with the company planning to run token hunts and several other competitions to spread the word and raise awareness of the project.

Vexanium, a Marketing Platform To Benefit Both Retailers and Users

Vexanium, a Marketing Platform To Benefit Both Retailers and Users

—SINGAPORE, April 11, 2018

An innovative decentralized marketing ecosystem called VEXANIUM, which helps to cut costs and improve efficiency and transparency for commercial businesses, is being launched by Danny Baskara and team. The blockchain based ecosystem which VEXANIUM creates will solve the major pain points that this industry faces today. The VEXANIUM platform will also naturally serve existing blockchain businesses in their user acquisition, activation and retention. This makes it attractive for both businessmen, crypto-enthusiasts and ordinary users.

In Asia, a majority of retailers use online promo marketing platforms such as Groupon, Dianping or Meituan to win new customers. Promo marketing strategies rely heavily on campaigns on these platforms which provide substantial traffic and sales. These platforms charge an average of 15% – 20% in commission per transaction through a CPA (Cost Per Acquisition) or CPS (Cost Per Sale) structure. An increasing number of retailers struggle because these commissions together with the discounts offered represent too high a proportion of their margins. To protect margins, retailers often end up giving lackluster promotions that are either unattractive or with unrealistic terms. Meanwhile, customers are often frustrated when trying to utilize a voucher or redeem their gift cards and coupons. Common difficulties include using vouchers that have already been utilized, expired, are lost or with unreasonable T&C requirements.

“By using the VEXANIUM platform, companies can create points in loyalty program applications in the form of digital tokens, "said Danny Baskara. "Typically such incentives are rewards to customers in Cost Per Acquisition (CPA) activity. The tokens can also be converted into coupons or points that can be used in corporate applications, " A study conducted by GfK concluded that 49% of consumers would gladly switch brands for savings in the form of a coupon. In the retail market, South-East Asia and Indonesia, in particular, are some of the fastest growing markets globally, with the latter boasting a population of over 260 million people. The importance of vouchers and coupons for retailers to attract new customers in those regions is significant.

VEX token will be listed on Tokenomy upon launching of the platform. Partnering with fIndodax.com (former bitcoin.co.id), the biggest digital asset exchange in Southeast Asia, Tokenomy helps VEX access to 1,000,000+ potential investors and traders. The VEX app features an integration with selected crypto exchanges in order to allow users to directly trade their VEX token balance on the exchange. Also, the VEX Exchange will allow consumers to trade vouchers among themselves and set their own prices. Customers will be able to store and redeem their voucher tokens via VEXANIUM app.

One game-changing use case of the VEX Platform is the lucrative “airdrop” market, which will allow blockchain companies to create airdrop campaigns for acquiring new customers and rewarding existing ones, using the VEX token. "For companies that want to take advantage of the VEXANIUM platform and want to create digital tokens on their applications are required to purchase a large number of VEXANIUM digital tokens, VEX, because each transaction is using the token, included in transaction fees," Danny states. This will be facilitated via the VEX web and mobile apps.

In an exciting move,  the VEXANIUM marketplace plans to be fully functional and open to merchants and individual users in Indonesia by Q4 2018. VEXANIUM will complete the establishment of the ecosystem by launching VEXchange and VEXplorer by Q2 2019. Merchants and enterprise users can create voucher tokens and start their marketing campaigns all seamlessly via the one-stop mobile app. VEXANIUM founder and CEO Danny Baskara previously built and sold Indonesia’s largest voucher and couponing platform Evoucher, which was with more than 2 million active users. After 7 years of building Evoucher, the founders realized that the blockchain can solve the fundamental problems of this industry. The idea for the VEXANIUM ecosystem was born.

VEXANIUM will revolutionize this space by bringing the voucher and couponing industry on-chain. The immutability, liquidity and decentralized nature of VEXANIUM will revolutionize this market while introducing a whole new wave of retailers and users to the blockchain era. A number of angel investors are already backing VEXANIUM, such as Marcus Yeung, founder and CEO of SEAbridge, and Joseph Aditya,  CEO of Ralali, the largest B2B marketplace portal in Indonesia. VEXANIUM VEX token pre-sale starts on April 14th, 2018.

Bitcoin Price: Experts Weigh in on Cryptocurrency Price Recovery Amidst Institutional Interest

Bitcoin Price: Experts Weigh in on Cryptocurrency Price Recovery Amidst Institutional Interest

Bitcoin looks like it will end the week with a 15% price increase

and all but four of the top 100 cryptocurrencies by market capitalization are still showing green. Investors are demonstrating increased confidence illustrated by trading volumes. Experts have shared their predictions and explanations for the increase, which may well indicate a recovery for the cryptocurrency market after months of trepidation. Thursday’s sudden price increase for Bitcoin is the result of what experts term a “short squeeze” and it sparked a frenzy of activity in the charts.

“This is what’s known in the markets as a short squeeze. When a lot of people are short on heavy leverage, a small movement up can trigger someone’s stop-loss,” said Mati Greenspan, Senior Market Analyst at eToro. “Keep in mind that when a short position gets closed it actually creates a buy order. After a prolonged period of moving within the range, stop losses start to pile up. And so, even a small movement in the market can trigger a chain reaction of stop losses all at once and lead to a breakout on the charts.”

The orange and blue dotted lines represent the tight range, between $6500 and $7500, that bitcoin has been trading in for the

past two weeks.

“We would normally look for a test of the blue line before moving forward. However, should the excitement start to come back into this market, it might not need to.” Said Greenspan. “The ratio of short margin trades versus longs has been increasing recently,” said Nick Kirk, quantitative developer and data scientist at Cypher Capital. “Buying volume ticked up today and a lot of these short trades got liquidated, helping fuel the rally.”

In an earlier interview with Bloomberg on April 11th, 2018, Greenspan predicted that Wall Street was “building bridges” and would “at least even things out” in the cryptocurrency markets by injecting new liquidity.

On April 6th, 2018, news broke that hedge fund legend George Soros might begin to invest in cryptocurrencies. According to reports, Adam Fisher, head of macro investing for Soros Fund Management received internal approval to trade cryptocurrencies. Hedge Fund Research indicates the average return on funds that started investing in cryptocurrency at the beginning of 2017 is 2,908%, compared to 9% gains for traditional hedge funds over the same period. On April 10th, 2018, Venrock, the Rockefeller family’s venture capital businesses announced a partnership with cryptocurrency investor group

CoinFund.

“We wanted to partner with this team that has been making investments and actually helping to architect a number of different crypto economies and crypto token-based projects,” said Venrock partner David Pakman

The Rockefeller family has an estimated net worth of over $1 trillion, with Venrock reportedly holding $2.6 billion in managed assets. Venrock made significant gains with early investments in Intel and

Apple.

“There are a lot of crypto traders in the market,” continued Pakman. “There are a lot of cryptocurrency hedge funds. This is different. To us, it looks a little bit more like venture capital.”

There are also disputed rumours that the Rothschild family now hold cryptocurrency related investments. Commenting to Bloomberg, leading Wall Street strategist Tom Lee describes Bitcoin’s sudden price hike

as “overdue”.

“We still feel pretty confident that bitcoin is a great risk-reward and we think it could reach $25,000 by the end of the year,” said Fundstrat co-founder Lee.

It’s not just Bitcoin that is seeing health price increases. Only a handful of coins in the top 100 are still showing declining prices. A number of coins have 24-hour average price increases of 20% and more. Ripple (XRP), with the third largest market capitalization after Bitcoin and Ethereum, is currently trading at $0.67 after a 21% increase. This is directly compared to a current rate increase of 5% for Bitcoin today. Ripple’s increase is likely fuelled by the announcement that Santander is launching an international payments service “OnePay FX” based on Ripple’s xCurrent blockchain technology. With the move, Santander becomes the first bank to offer a blockchain-based international payments service across a number of countries

at the same time.

“One Pay FX uses blockchain-based technology to provide a fast, simple and secure way to transfer money internationally – offering value, transparency, and the trust and service customers expect from a bank like Santander.”

Other notable price increases include IOTA (MIOTA), currently 10th by market capitalization at 21%, NEM (XEM) at 17% and Vitalik Buterin backed OmiseGO at 18%.

Realities That Will Rock The World Of Marketing In 2018

Realities That Will Rock The World Of Marketing In 2018

The digital marketing industry shows few signs of slowing down

as brands continue to adjust to the pace of change in data, technology and measurement. As marketing shifts away from the classic model of mindless spending, there are new opportunities and emerging technologies that can better trace the correlation between spending and engagement with prospective customers. From fake news to Facebook algorithms to Google and other tech giants changing the game, the industry landscape continues to force brands to adapt to new consumer behaviors and innovate to get the win. Based on my experience as the CEO of a digital marketing agency, here are four realities that I see shifting the world of marketing this year.

Every aspect of marketing is in the midst of an automation transformation.

Technology has introduced new kinds of marketing tools that take the guesswork out of advertising. For some firms, this has been a game changer, and for others, it has been a death sentence. Driven by emerging technologies, analytics and better data, marketing plans are shifting every day to match media consumption changes and platform updates. Yet, one of the biggest opportunities out of the digital transformation in marketing is reimagining the strategy in itself. Brands need to evolve their thinking to a process that observes the behavior of consumers through unique customer journeys and optimize efforts accordingly. Gone are the days when marketers can look at the last click in the funnel and make campaign-based decisions.

Digital transformation is not as straightforward as a one-touch fix. To deliver consumers a personalized marketing experience, brands need better control over their channels and performance. The rise of machine learning and automation has given way to incredible platforms for attribution modeling and optimization. By using these technologies, marketers can now track and measure their interaction with customers across all mediums to see where their ad spend is most effective and how customers are receiving and interacting with their marketing message.

Marketers must mine the endless mounds of data.

Across the board, companies increasingly understand that a “one-size-fits-all” approach to marketing can’t win anymore. Brands will be connecting with consumers in a more innovative, data-driven environment — especially in retail — by tapping into marketing technology platforms for better insights into consumer buying habits. Those brands with campaigns that are data-driven with location intelligence and analytics are more apt for stronger data and greater personalization. In this strategically intricate dance, consumers will be continuously touched by brand messaging, experiences and influencers that, when optimally layered together, drive better results.

Besides easing operational processes and increasing efficiency, marketers must leverage the potential of artificial intelligence-driven tools to power through data and effectively engage with their customers — and with better success after every instance. AI can also help identify the best engagement points in the buying journey. Innovations in AI like chatbots and augmented/virtual reality are changing the way brands plan campaigns, envision touchpoints and enhance customer experiences, all while generating actionable data insights throughout the process.

The power of search has voice.

Last year marked a huge shift in the power of voice in search marketing. If consumer brands haven’t gotten on board with SEO strategies catered to voice search, they need to get in the game before it’s too late. Google insights reveal that, on a daily basis, more than half of American teenagers and 41% of adults are talking to their phones via voice search. Amazon is said to have sold more than 20 million Echo units to date, with Google Home gaining ground and taking up to 24% of market share since it entered the game in 2015. By 2020, ComScore predicts voice search could account for up to half of all queries. This trend has been happening in the SEO world for some time, and with the growing appetite for search bots (i.e., Alexa, Cortana), the transition to a voice-search world is progressing every day.

SEO marketers should make note of this, given that optimizing for voice search requires different tactics compared to the traditional method and having insight into this new normal could help brands provide better customer experience. Optimizing for voice search technology allows for marketers to create more conversational campaigns and provides a natural way for people to interact with brands. Voice search will continue to explode as more predictive machine learning technologies advance this particular AI evolution. Looking forward, the voice search market is wide open and it’s possible that the strongest user group hasn’t even been born.

Content transformation will be king.

By 2021, an eMarketer report (registration required) predicts there will be more than 2.7 billion people around the world using mobile phones, with more than 87% of those using smartphones for internet access. The report also described the dominance of tech titans Google and Facebook in the U.S. digital ad market and digital ad revenue worldwide. In this attention-driven duopoly, with ever-changing algorithms and updates, businesses are competing against friends and family for attention. The demand for mobile-ready, shareable content has never been more relentless. Every aspect of content marketing will become more user-centric and personalized, and brands must be willing to adapt.

In order to scale authenticity in this crowded environment, some brands are heavily investing in video to connect with customers to help share ideas, products, purpose and personality. Likewise, influencers will continue to play a role in content but with a new requirement of stronger return on investment. No matter the industry, your brand must steer away from vague, overly expensive programs and partnerships and opt for relevant, data-driven influencer strategies. The challenge in digital content for today’s marketer is to remain authentic while achieving campaign goals. Brands that create experiences that inspire, educate or entertain through content and messaging efforts will continue to win in 2018.

What marketers need to know about Facebook’s updated Business Tools Terms

What marketers need to know about Facebook’s updated Business Tools Terms

The updates are largely guided by GDPR and go into effect May 25, 2018.

As Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg faced Senate and House committees in Washington, DC,

this week, the platform introduced new terms around the use of customer data, tracking and measurement. Zuckerberg reiterated to lawmakers that Facebook will, in effect, apply the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) standards to its business globally. Not surprisingly, the Terms changes are timed to go into effect on May 25, 2018, the same date the GDPR’s sweeping set of rules governing the handling of consumer data will go into effect.

A new “Facebook Business Tools Terms” consolidates the “Conversion Tracking, Custom Audiences From Your Website, and Custom Audiences From Your Mobile App Terms” and “Offline Conversion Terms,” and the Custom Audience Terms have been updated. Here’s a rundown of the key changes to the terms that apply to any website owner, publisher, developer, advertiser, business partner (and their customers) and any other entity that integrates with, uses and exchanges information with Facebook. Note that Facebook Business Tools encompass a lot: APIs and SDKs, the Facebook Pixel, social plugins such as the Like and Share buttons, Facebook Login and Account Kit, as well as other platform integrations, plugins, code, specifications, documentation, technology and services.

New terms for GDPR compliance

In section 5.1 of the Facebook Business Tools Terms, a note to EU and Swiss data controllers specifically on

GDPR states:

To the extent the Customer Data contain personal data which you process subject to the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) (the “GDPR”), the parties acknowledge and agree that for purposes of providing matching, measurement, and analytics services described in Paragraphs 2.1 and 2.2 above, that you are the data controller in respect of such personal data, and you have instructed Facebook Ireland Limited to process such personal data on your behalf as your data processor pursuant to these terms and Facebook’s Data Processing Terms, which are incorporated herein by reference. “Personal data,” “data controller,” and “data processor” in this paragraph have the meanings set out in the Data Processing Terms.

What this means:
This section clarifies that the Facebook Marketers are considered data controllers from a GDPR standpoint and Facebook the data processor. A third-party data processor is an entity that processes personally identifiable information (PII) on behalf of a controller. A controller is defined by the GDPR as an entity that determines how that data will be processed and for what reason. Both controllers and processors must comply with the EU regulation. The Terms for using Facebook Pixels and SDKs have also been updated for GDPR.

Section 3.3 states:

In jurisdictions that require informed consent for the storing and accessing of cookies or other information on an end user’s device (such as but not limited to the European Union), you must ensure, in a verifiable manner, that an end user provides the necessary consent before you use Facebook Business Tools to enable us to store and access cookies or other information on the end user’s device. (For suggestions on implementing consent mechanisms.

What this means:
Site and app owners must obtain and manage user consent for Facebook to access, gather and store their data. This is a critical piece of GDPR that pertains to any company controlling or processing data on EU citizens, regardless of where they reside.

Requirement to notify Facebook of any actual or ‘threatened’ complaints about personal data

Another important change in the terms that marketers need to be aware of is in section 1.5.

The provision states:

You will notify us promptly in writing of any actual or threatened complaint or challenge related to the use of personal data under these Business Tools Terms and will cooperate with us in responding to such complaint or challenge.

What this means:
Advertisers must take any user’s complaint (even threatened) about the use of personal data seriously. You must be prepared to report to Facebook, in writing, any suggestion of a complaint or challenge over the handling or use of personal data when you’re made aware of it.

Keep reporting internal

Want to share a case study about your Facebook ad campaign? Think again. Section 2.2.2 of the Facebook Business Tools Terms explicitly states that advertisers are not allowed to share Campaign Reports or Analytics unless they have Facebook’s written consent:

We grant to you a non-exclusive and non-transferable license to use the Campaign Reports and Analytics for your internal business purposes only and solely on an aggregated and anonymous basis for measurement purposes. You will not disclose the Campaign Reports or Analytics, or any portion thereof, to any third party, unless otherwise agreed to in writing by us. We will not disclose the Campaign Reports or Analytics, or any portion thereof, to any third party without your permission, unless (i) they have been combined with Campaigns Reports and Analytics from numerous other third parties and (ii) your identifying information is removed from the combined Campaign Reports and Analytics.

What this means:
All Campaign Reports and Analytics need to stay internal and include only anonymized, aggregated data. Keep screen shots and charts out of presentations, case studies and social media unless you have permission from Facebook. However, Facebook retains the right to use your unidentified reporting data when aggregated with that of other advertisers

No pixel sharing

This is a change. Section 3.1 of the Facebook Business Tools Terms states:

You (or partners acting on your behalf) may not place pixels associated with your business manager or ad account on websites that you do not own without our written permission

What this means:
You may not gather data for ad targeting or measurement by placing your or your clients’ pixels on other sites you may have access to or any other site unless Facebook OKs it. This has been a not-so-secret Facebook marketing tactic for some time. If you currently have pixels on other sites, it’s time to revisit those placements and either get Facebook’s permission or remove them to stay in compliance with the Terms.

Facebook Business Tools Terms

Some of the terminology has also changed with this update.

As of May 25, 2018:

  • “Sales Data” now is called “Customer Data.”
  • “User Information” now means “Contact Information.”
  • “Sales Transaction Data” now is “Event Data.”
  • “Matched Data” now means Event Data that is combined with Matched User IDs.
  • “Unmatched Data” now means Event Data that is not combined with Matched User IDs.
  • “Reports” is now “Campaign Reports.”
  • “OC” is now referred to as “Offline Conversions.”

Those are the main takeaways that we pulled from the updated terms. There are other changes, but they don’t appear to impact the day-to-day of marketers as much as the above. If you have any other items that stood out, please let us know on social media.

Billionaire Tim Draper Sets $250,000 Bitcoin Price Target for 2022

Billionaire Tim Draper Sets $250,000 Bitcoin Price Target for 2022


Tech billionaire Tim Draper, an avowed cryptocurrency bull,

has set a $250,000 bitcoin price target for 2022. Draper made the bold prediction April 12 at the 2018 Block (Chain) Party at his self-named Draper University in San Mateo, California. “I’m thinking $250,000 a bitcoin by 2022,” Draper said (via Reddit). “Believe it. They’re going to think you’re crazy, but believe it. It’s happening and it’s going to be awesome!” Draper has a fairly good track record for predicting bitcoin price movements, so market observers aren’t taking his bullish forecast lightly. In 2015, the venture capitalist accurately predicted that bitcoin would top $10,000 by the end of 2017. BTC prices soared above $13,000 on December 31, 2017.

‘Blockchain Is Transformational’

Draper also predicts that blockchain will disrupt and transform finance, healthcare, and many other industries. “It’s honest, it’s straightforward, it’s incorruptible, and it’s fair,” he said. Shortly before the Block (Chain) Party, Draper signaled his unwavering confidence in blockchain, the technology undergirding cryptocurrencies. “The blockchain is one of the most transformational technologies that has happened in the history of the world,” he told the San Mateo Daily Journal. “And it is totally worth celebrating.”

Draper isn’t the only billionaire who’s betting big on blockchain. The Rockefeller family (estimated net worth: $1 trillion) has partnered with the cryptocurrency investor group CoinFund to help entrepreneurs launch blockchain-based businesses. David Pakman, a partner in Venrock — the venture-capital arm of the Rockefeller family — said his VC firm is not interested in turning short-term profits, but in making  a long-term investment in blockchain. “There are a lot of crypto traders in the market,” Pakman said. “There are a lot of cryptocurrency hedge funds. This is different. To us, it looks a little bit more like venture capital.”

Purchased 30,000 Bitcoins For $600 Apiece

Tim Draper has an undergraduate degree in electrical engineering from Stanford University and an MBA from Harvard. He comes from a long family line of venture capitalists. In 2014, Draper made headlines after buying 30,000 bitcoins for $600 apiece (total price paid: $18.5 million) at an auction by the U.S. Marshals Service, a law-enforcement arm of the Department of Justice. The Justice Department frequently auctions off property seized during criminal raids.

At today’s bitcoin price of roughly $8,000 a token, Draper’s stake is now worth about $240 million. That’s not a bad return for a four-year investment. The entry of Old Money like the Rockefellers and Silicon Valley’s stamp of approval is another signal that cryptocurrencies and blockchain — the technology behind bitcoin — is here to stay, despite the daily protestations from skeptics that “bitcoin is dead.”

World’s Second Largest Crypto Exchange OKEx Moves To ‘Blockchain Island’ Of Malta

World’s Second Largest Crypto Exchange OKEx Moves
To ‘Blockchain Island’ Of Malta

 

Malta, which has recently passed regulatory legislation concerning Blockchain,

cryptocurrencies, and Initial Coin Offerings (ICO) in a bid to become a crypto-friendly “Blockchain island,” is welcoming major crypto exchange OKEx to the country, according to an OKEx press release published today, April 12. Crypto exchange Binance, the world’s largest exchange by trade volume, also reported at the end of March that they were planning on opening at office in Malta, after receiving a warning from Japanese regulators. Crypto trader and Twitter personа WhalePanda tweeted the news of OKEx’s Malta move earlier today, writing that Malta is “getting crowded”:

Malta is getting crowded.

As part of their plan to attract Blockchain and crypto-related business to the country, Malta released a document in February entitled, “Malta – A leader in DLT Regulation,” as well as proposed the establishment of several regulation-supporting organizations, like the Malta Digital Innovation Authority Bill and the Virtual Currencies Bill. OKEx writes in their press release that after meeting with Maltese regulators about the regulatory crypto framework, they are “confident in the Malta government’s approach and decided to make Malta a foundation for further OKEx growth.”

OKEx CEO Chris Lee stated:

“We look forward to working with the Malta government as it is forward thinking and shares many of our same values: the most important of which are protection of traders and the general public, compliance with Anti Money Laundering and Know Your Customer standards, and recognition of the innovation and importance of continued development in the Blockchain ecosystem.”

 OKEx is the number two ranked cryptocurrency exchange by 24 hour trading volume on CoinMarketCap, currently trading around $1.6 bln over a 24 hour period.
