Blockchain And Decentralization Threatens The Tech Cartels

Blockchain And Decentralization Threatens The Tech Cartels

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

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

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

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

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

 

Freedom Of Speech And Privacy Are Paramount

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

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

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

 

What Is On The Horizon?

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

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

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

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

 

The Next Generation in Social and Marketing Platforms

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

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

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

Conclusion

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

How Can Blockchain And Crypto Improve Online Branding?

How Can Blockchain And Crypto Improve Online Branding?

Default Profile Page. How It Benefits You

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

 

Markethive Tracking Feature

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

 

Monetizing Markethive

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

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

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

Resume Builder

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

 

A News Feed Like No Other

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

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

 

Get Paid To Learn The System

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

 

Summary

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

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

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

The Current & Scaling Problems Of The Internet Social Network

The Current & Scaling Problems Of The Internet Social Network

The problems

Social Networks violate privacy, promote drama, deliver endomorphins creating unproductive addictions and have not significantly changed since their inception, other than, increased manipulation, shadow banning, political agendas, deplatforming, and scandal.

Traditional Inbound Marketing platforms (Automated Marketing) are all centralized applications and are built as a single or limited partnership user dashboard. These traditional solutions are costly, cumbersome, difficult to understand and heavy to operate.  With a costly system that is difficult to understand a new member experiences isolation, frustration, and detachment.

Platforms like Hubspot and Marketo are advanced effective tools for gaining leverage in the Internet playing field. These tools give wealthy players huge advantages over the ordinary average entrepreneur struggling to gain a foothold in an increasingly unfair playing field. Inbound Marketing platforms cost between $300 (entry levels no data) to well over $25,000 for well configured, mature and data-rich systems.

eCommerce; Conducting commerce like Amazon, eBay, Shopify have steep costs to conduct transactions, bottlenecks, and restrictive rules. It is even worse on sites like Freelancers, Textbrokers, and Fiver. Making it difficult to communicate, preventing sharing contact information and forbidding phone calls, emails or chatting on 3rd party devices. These restraints stifle creativity, innovation, collaboration, and efficiency.

 

Data, Security And Privacy – GONE!

Personal data, data security, privacy are non-existent in today’s markets across the board from centralized systems, public corporations and social networks like Twitter and LinkedIn; Media sharing  portals like Instagram and Youtube; Discussion forums like Reddit and Digg; Bookmarking systems like Pinterest and Flipboard; Blogging networks like Tumblr and Medium; especially shopping networks like Amazon and Shopify and the list is long and arduous.

Look what happened to Alex Jones (love him or not) the first amendment was seriously bruised taking InfoWars down with Apple, Paypal, Facebook, Youtube, Spotify, Mailchimp, Sticher, Roku, Pinterest even Twitter engaged in the deplatforming*. Domain registries like GoDaddy joined in the attack. Your pocketbook is also part of this centralized control with Paypal, Patreon and Stripe leading the way of terminating accounts that do not align with their agendas. This centralized wielding of power should concern everyone.

There is a better and more effective way, that protects speech and also rewards or demotes accordingly to the communities’ discretion, not the centralized control of the hierarchy of the current services like Facebook, Google, Amazon, and Instagram.

* Deplatforming, also known as no-platforming, refers to a form of Internet censorship in which social media and other technology companies conspire to suspend, ban, or otherwise shut down controversial speakers or speech. Banking and financial service providers, among other companies, have also denied services to controversial activists or organizations, a practice is known as financial deplatforming.

The term deplatforming also refers generally to tactics, often organized using social media, for preventing controversial speakers or speech from being heard. Deplatforming tactics have included disruption of speeches, attempts to have speakers disinvited to a venue or event, and various forms of personal harassment including efforts to have an individual fired or blacklisted.

Deplatforming denies “freedom” of speech and is a new attack on the individuals' rights in general.

 

The Solution Is Imminent. Soon To Be Prevalent

The Blockchain

Blockchain lies at the foundation for serious change. It decentralizes social networks and solves management issues via the community (not top-down ownership control) and smart contracts.  Shadow banning, account termination, data mining, stalking and other privacy violations are eliminated by blockchain’s very nature of decentralization and distribution. 

Social Networks built this way give control on banning and connections on a peer to peer relationship (a meritocracy) whereas the individual has 100% decision on what to subscribe to, not subscribe to and ban. The subscriber controls their own data, KYC data, 2Fa login by their own encryption key unique to each member.

 

Inbound Marketing

Inbound Marketing platforms integrated into a social network and delivered via a blockchain for free like Markethive has delivered, offers an entry with no obstacles, community collaboration with campaigns and jointly supported effect. Inbound Marketing tools, such as capture pages, email campaigns, broadcasting become exponential in their power and far more effective in their results. All at a no cost to enter and modest upgrades for increased leveraged benefits, and no additional tools to be paid for. Becoming a member at Markethive delivers all the tools for free. Easy to use, with a paid incentive to learn in a nurturing powerful community

 

Commerce Platforms

Commerce platforms based on blockchain and a multiuser cryptocurrency open up the barriers between sellers and users. Basically, the Markethive solution removes all restrictions to commerce making a non-barrier marketplace a reality.

In the Markethive blockchain solution, all data transactions are peer to peer and encrypted so 3rd party surveillance or recording becomes impossible protecting the trading partners autonomy and anonymity from anyone outside the transactions.

 

News Media & Content Site

Markethive is a multi-dimensional, deep level linking dynamics, social organizational integrated system. Integrating Vast Social networks reaches, internal social network connections, unlimited interconnected WordPress blogs, the vast API news sites like NBC, Wired Magazine, Bloomberg, Western journal, Mashable and 1000s of other news sites, that continue to expand due to the power of your own Markethive network and the collaboration of separate Markethive groups all working in union with each other. The ability to register and assign your many social networks into the Markethive matrix produces reaches into the literal billions. 

So now Markethive is a highly competitive market media and content publisher with a reach well beyond existing social and market networks. After comparing only 480 other news media sites in terms of their social reach and followers plus Alexa ranking, Markethive sits at Number 11 with an Alexa ranking of 26,600 at present. This continues to drop daily as subscribers join the Markethive network. 

 

Conclusion

The new era of Social/Market Networks with Blockchain technology is at hand. Your personal data, freedom of speech, reputation, branding, and livelihood cannot be tampered with, stolen or confiscated at the whim of the oligarchs’ agenda or used for the bottom line profits for their shareholders. This is a safe haven to continue to work, get your message out, sell your product or service with complete autonomy and privacy.

The Next Generation Of Social Networks

The Next Generation Of Social Networks

Things Online are Changing from the way we know it 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Social Networked

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

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

 

This Is The Next Generation

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

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

  • compromising users’ data becomes impossible.

  • A meritocratic system negates being banned or suspended

  • Blogcasting and messaging cannot be tracked across the web

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

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

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

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

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

 

A Social Media News Feed

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

Search Algorithms

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

Privacy

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

Stability

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

 

Conclusion

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

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

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

DISRUPTING CONVENTIONAL MARKETING WISDOM – Now On BLOCKCHAIN

DISRUPTING CONVENTIONAL MARKETING WISDOM – Now On BLOCKCHAIN

 – A Celebration Of Customer Heterogeneity

Customer Centricity Found in Markethive’s system

 

Markethive Friends:

Markethive friends are very similar to friends with other social networks being more interested in “likes” and other social type activities. They have no collaboration relationship with you. They have a very low attention value and like the others, engagement is virtually non-existent. However, like the other social networks, aggressive messaging and publishing can acquire a few of these members into a group or redirect them to a capture page, but doing so is often more expensive than it’s worth.

Markethive Leads:

Markethive is an Inbound Marketing platform complete with cutting edge autoresponders and capture pages. These systems produce good leads. This means a higher attention value and engagement is likely. It is also very likely they will progress into a Markethive subscription. If you have upgraded to the Entrepreneur’s 8 point platform, they will become your “associate” a superior connection to anything out there.

Markethive Associates:

Associates become your loyal connections; these folks will engage, collaborate and stick with you indefinitely. As an Entrepreneur upgrade, these $200 connections earn you an equal coin drop as high as 500 coins per.  Whereas an Entrepreneur upgrade and a reasonable ad campaign can easily produce a profit in excess of $40,000 and an exclusive lead database worth over $600k within 1 year. Not to mention the millions in MHV coin.

The differences between distinct kinds of customers are something to celebrate. By breaking your customers into meaningful groups, you can obtain great data about the kinds of customers you really want to attract. Why focus on a hypothetical average when you can focus on a real-world, high-value customer segment? As an example, here is how it breaks down with Markethive.

What Does It Mean to Be Customer Centric

Being customer centric is often confused with being customer focused – but the reality is, there’s a big difference. Being customer focused means offering a consistently great and relevant experience. It’s an underlying principle that basically urges companies to treat their customers right.

Being customer-centric means looking at a customer’s lifetime value and focusing marketing efforts squarely on that real-world, high-value customer segment to drive profit.

Marketing leaders who don’t know how much their customers are worth.

Potential increase in sales from identifying and maximizing top value customers.

Gold Medal Acquisition

Creating the next big thing isn’t as important as finding the next big customer. Every dollar spent acquiring these customers will return that value many times over.

Silver Medal Development

Development is about the great American question: “Do we want fries with that?” Getting more value from an existing customer is good, but extremely difficult.

Bronze Medal Retention

Even if you do retain “Friends,” they’re not worth very much. There’s no real value in spending more time or money to engage them. Instead, spend that money on acquiring more “Markethive Associates.”

 

Most of your connections and leads aren’t that valuable

There is no “average” connection or lead, and most of your customers or connections end up not being very profitable. Building a business around them just doesn’t make sense when you could be focusing on your best customers.

Customer Centricity is

  • Using customer data to better understand and segment your connections base.

  • Identifying the best customers and connections

  • Focusing on products and services for the best connections and customers

  • Using Connections Lifetime Value (CLV) to segment your customers

  • Focusing on the “average” customer.

  • Courting and retaining low-quality customers.

  • Underspending on acquiring high-quality customers.

 

How to Become Customer Centric

THROW CONVENTIONAL MARKETING WISDOM OUT THE WINDOW

It made sense in a product-centric world to distinguish between profitable customers and no-so-profitable customers. Times have changed.

USE DATA TO YOUR ADVANTAGE

A profitable customer-centric strategy is about how, where, and when you acquire instantly actionable learnings about your customers.

BUILD YOUR BUSINESS AROUND THE BEST CUSTOMERS

Come up with products and services to make your best customers even better

 

While running a startup, a question that constantly hovers around the entire founding team is what will make the company successful. Well, opinions are vast and varied, but, data talks, so here based on an analysis published last year by a venture capital firm First Round Capital, we have listed some of the factors that weigh out most of the speculated ones.

The following infographic illustrates the percentage of founding teams, with these attributes, perform above average.

How do you decide which customer or connection are your most profitable? For recurring revenue business vs potential revenue business, that signals a major opportunity divide.  With the hybrid combination of Market Networks further blurring occurs, it is no longer a separation of platforms where connections and friends are related to social networks and customers and leads come only via commerce platforms like eBay and Amazon.

When Paypal paid you $10 for each new Paypal signup, did that new member become your lead, customer, connection or friend? Paypal eventual stopped the promotion and that connection was never made available to you. But Paypal was unwittingly a trendsetter.

 

First Market Network On Blockchain – Disruptive?

Today Markethive is disrupting this conventional perspective as Markethive is clearly merging all of these vertical classifications. When a new member signs up via your Entrepreneur upgraded profile page it produces a valued lead rated at about $200 because of the exclusivity and rich data it produces.

It also represents a revenue return because of the nature of the Consumer Coin, [MHV] financial velocity, faucets, airdrops, and Markethive’s exclusive integrated commerce platforms, thus extending the projected Customer Lifetime Value beyond 10 years with the Cost of Acquisition averaging under $1 with the Airdrop offer and SaaS Inbound Marketing worth over $2000 per month for free for life.

Markethive, built on the Blockchain offers complete autonomy, privacy, and transparency with freedom of speech paramount and woven into the fabric of what Markethive stands for. Markethive is the ecosystem for entrepreneurs. As such MH offers many services, upgrades, and commerce platforms. Loyalty programs share with you Markethive net revenues via your upgraded “associates”

This entire ecosystem turns every member, every connection into long term customers.

Today’s customer brings their requirements to the organization and becomes an integral part of that organization. In a true collaborative relationship, all parties reciprocate. It is not just about an exchange of money in return for a good or service anymore. It has become a symbiotic relationship which becomes integrated with the flow of the system, a part of the ecosystem, contributing to the financial velocity of that ecosystem, “The entrepreneur’s ecosystem”.

The Search For A Social Conscience, Not Facebook

The search for a replacement for Facebook

Markethive enters the race

Dave Fanger, CEO, and founder, Swell Investing, back in April 2018 says “Facebook shares are not as 'socially responsible' as many investors thought…A company that enabled the manipulation of data from up to 87 million people couldn't possibly be considered responsible, could it?”

Jessica Guynn of USA TODAY in her article titled, Facebook is making a big change to your news feed, stated, “ Facebook is radically altering the formula that determines what bubbles to the top of people's news feed…”

Elon Musk deletes own and his company’s Facebook pages along with; Will Farrell, Cher, Jim Carrey,  director/actor Farhan Akhtar, Steve Wozniak, Susan Sarandon, Rosie O’Donald and about  219M other Facebook usersThe #DELETEFACEBOOK hashtag is trending all over the world. 

Angel investor Jason Calacanis of the Launch Fund states, “Facebook is a destructive force in our society.”

From Social Network To Market Network


Markethive The Dream Machine

Reid Hoffman (founder LinkedIn), statesEveryone is now an entrepreneur, whether they recognize it or not.

The rise of the entrepreneur and the fall of destructive forces in our social platforms is here now.  Markethive is creating a “Universal Income” for entrepreneurs. Using our state-of-the-art integrated inbound marketing platform, social network, artificial intelligence, business services, ewallet, coin exchange, mining datacenter, incubator and blockchain income platforms for success in the cryptopreneurial and entrepreneurial markets.

Markethive is the next generation Market Network Market networks bring a career's worth of professional connections online and make them more useful. For years, social networks like LinkedIn and Facebook have helped build long-term relationships. However, until market networks, they hadn't been used for commerce and transactions.

Referrals and valued content flow freely.  All community and social platforms on the internet have had their era, from AOL to MySpace, and typically they’re not shut down by the government — they’re quickly replaced by better platforms.

Market Networks are coming

Techcrunch: From Social Networks To Market Networks

Forbes: Moving From Mass Production Supply Chains To Market Networks

Quora: What are examples of market networks?

Markethive is the key to having the SaaS and the Marketplace be addictive to each other and software that increases the efficiency of the work in the marketplace Markethive.  You will prefer working with our tools vs working with other tools.  Markethive benefits both the buyers and sellers on the platform.

Markethive: The Replacement For Facebook (and LinkedIn too)

This better platform is here now, it's not just an idea, its here, living, open for business.  Thomas Prendergast said, “After 27 years in development and 4 years in beta testing, the dream machine, called Markethive is here now and here to stay”.

The Hive is the New Network

The Hive is the New Network

Facebook, Twitter and Instagram all started life as revolutionary networks that brought existing real-world relationships online. Today, they are aging utilities, powering an outdated version of the social internet.

 As social networks like Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram grow larger, they skew disproportionately toward supernodes—celebrity, meme and business accounts. An estimated 8% of of all accounts are fake spam bots. The average Instagram user posts 2.69 times a day, while the average user with over a million followers posts 8.58 times. 80 million photos are posted a day, but the average engagement rate per post is 1.1%. On Instagram, 50% of posts are generated by less than 3% of accounts. Facebook is a bit more stable because it has a cap on the number of friends you can have. Still, original sharing like posting photos to your Facebook feed or updating your status is decreasing 21% year over year.

Today it’s no longer enough to “connect the world.”

If you want to survive, don’t just build a network. You have to build a hive, and eventually a hivemind.

The Existential Crisis of the Network

Even though some social networks have grown to include billions of people, the ramp up in communication hasn’t increased proportionally. Even as you add friends or follow users, you can only talk to so many. Facebook users with over 500 friends only actively communicate with between 10 to 20 people. Similarly, Twitter users who have follower counts of over 1,000 share strong ties with fewer than 50 of their followers.

 Myspace’s rapid user growth precipitated an equally rapid decline. It’s a cautionary lesson that growth in the network doesn’t equate to growth in business value. Networks can’t just be neutral. They have to be instrumental.

 A network connects different people and gives them many points of contact for communication and transaction. A network is a neutral description of how connections between composite parts form a system. As networks mature, we’re starting to see something completely new emerge.

 When it comes to car travel,

Google Maps gives us the distance between point A and point B, but Uber moves us from A to B faster.

When it comes to socializing,

Facebook gives us a way to connect, but Messenger helps us to communicate.

When it comes to shopping,

eBay allows us to buy anything online, but Amazon Prime gives us what we want when we want it.

The value of being connected isn’t in being networked. It’s having an opinion and taking action toward an outcome.

The Hive

A single honeybee weighs around 1/10th of a gram. Add up all the honeybees in a hive, and you get around five to eight pounds worth of honeybees — but you don’t get a hive. The beehive is an 80-pound mass that includes every individual bee, but is much more.
 
The hive is a smarter, evolved network that is bigger than the sum of its parts. The hive:

  • Increases the frequency of interactions between nodes and creates more touch-points within the hive. It’s how the hive learns and makes informed decisions in response to a changing external environment.
  • Decreases friction between nodes and creates a higher level of synchronicity between members of the hive. This produces stronger ties between individual members and allows the hive to act collectively.

Because of the increased frequency of interactions, a hive behaves more intelligently, and because of the decreased friction between nodes, a hive can do more than transfer data. It responds and evolves based on that data. The hive isn’t just more networked. It’s more densely populated with organic, living components.

Though not obvious, the hive is becoming central to the way we think, behave and interact. The best way to understand emergent human hives is to observe how hives operate in nature.

Increasing Frequency of Interactions: Ant Colonies Move as Liquids and Solids

An ant colony is so in sync that a mass of them can stick together to form solids or melt into fluids as a single body. By simply holding onto each other or letting go, the viscosity of a cluster of ants changes. They’re able to do so because of the high frequency of interaction between ants in a colony.

For ants, communication is survival. If you apply pressure to a ball of ants, the ants nearest to the top will begin to act as though they are dead, increasing the fluidity of the writhing mass of ants. The harder the ants are pressed, the more fluid they become to absorb the pressure. The more ants there are linked together, the more pressure they can collectively withstand.

What allows ants to adapt so quickly isn’t the content of a transmitted message, but the way one ant presses against another triggers a chain reaction through the entire cluster. It’s how ant clusters can form rafts to avoid drowning and build bridges out of their bodies to cross gaps.

The fluidity of ants allows them to thrive in almost any environment. They’ve colonized every continent except Antarctica, making up 15–25% of terrestrial animals on Earth.

Consumerization of the Enterprise: Mass Alignment in the Workplace

Tools like Google Apps for Work, Slack and Github are making us more like ant clusters. They increase the frequency of interaction within an organization. People can communicate and switch tasks faster, make smarter decisions based on data and use smarter tools that talk to one another.

Rather than being individuals sitting alone in cubicles, we’re like a cluster of ants crawling and moving around and on top of each other with shared tools that everyone can access.

The image above on the left shows how email communication patterns follow organizational hierarchies at an HP research lab. The image on the right shows the pattern of developers collaborating over chat. With a network model like email, you have to jump from one person to the next to get the information you need. In a hive, real-time communication occurs seamlessly between people. 
 
The high frequency of interaction gets everyone on the same page and working in sync:

  • People to people interactions: With the hive, a higher frequency of interactions means that work can be assigned on an ad-hoc basis with a tool for real-time chat like Slack. People can switch jobs more rapidly based on what the hive needs. One study shows that the top 20% of developers were also the ones that chatted the most frequently.
  • People to data interactions: What was specialized knowledge accessible via technical interfaces is now common knowledge exposed through conversational interfaces. Think Lookerbot for analytics and internal company data.
  • Data to data interactions: The workplace hive gives us insight where we once only got reports. Tools that everyone in the company uses creates massive amounts of data, which helps people use tools more efficiently. This workflow data used to be valuable only as a system of record. Today, it produces actual business intelligence.

The net result is a vastly smarter organization aligned around shared goals. With more interaction between workers and tools, a business can transform from solid to fluid depending on the needs of the hive.

Decreasing Communication Friction: Bee Swarms Operate like Neural Nets

A swarm of bees on the move resembles the movement of neurons in the human brain. That’s how they’re able to colonize new nesting sites within hours of leaving their old one. 
 
This doesn’t happen through a centralized intelligence where the queen bee shouts down orders. Instead, it’s through the low-level communication of scout bees that reduces friction for the entire hive and allows for rapid and collective decision-making.
 
A hive has around three days to find a new nest site before it dies. Finding the right home means exploring possible sites in a one-mile radius of the queen. The queen can’t go out and look at sites on her own, and doesn’t have the bandwidth to process every possible location that the scouts find and make a good decision quickly.

Instead, scout bees — who represent 3% of the entire hive — are responsible for choosing the new hive. When it’s time for the hive to move, around 50 scouts are sent out to look for a promising home. When a scout finds one she likes, she does a “waggle dance” to signal the location to the other scouts. Scouts check out a variety of sites and dance around the one they think will help the hive survive.
 
 As soon as 30 or so scouts gather around a new nest site, the rest of the hive is already lifting off into the air. 
 
The decision-making process of bees reduces friction for how a massive collection of individual parts can evaluate a variety of inputs quickly and intelligently. Ultimately, 30 bees decide the fate for 10,000.

Mobile Messaging: The Formation of WeChat’s Hive

While networks like Instagram and Twitter are beginning to wear thin, messaging apps like WeChat are frenetic hives of activity that build economic empowerment. Like honeybee scouts, messaging apps decrease the friction of centralized nodes in the 1:1 communication between individual nodes and allow for emergent behaviors.

WeChat began five years ago as a messaging service. Today, you can use it to pre-order dumplings from a street-vendor, call a taxi, read the news, and even buy a house.

With WeChat, we see the evolution of a consumer product through the three stages of want, need and utility to the hive. At each stage, WeChat focuses on reducing friction by providing infrastructure for users. On WeChat, all it takes is a critical mass of people adopting new behavior to turn it into a utility that benefits the whole hive.

  • Want — 2011: When WeChat launched, it let you send messages, voice clips, photos and that’s about it. Over the next year, as China moved from 2G to 3G, WeChat gave users the ability to make voice and video calls. It automatically compressed videos people uploaded to save cellular data. People wanted to use WeChat because it allowed you to easily — and cheaply — talk to other people.
  • Need — 2012: WeChat users in China were often reluctant to download standalone apps because of high data costs. The launch of “official accounts,” or chatbots, emerged within these constraints. People could read the news or check bank statements via text message to an official account. Their needs were met entirely within WeChat’s platform.
  • Utility — 2013: The addition of mobile payments and WeChat Wallet provided a new layer of utility for users and drove the wide scale adoption of commercial behavior onto the platform. One group of Chinese students built a fruit delivery business on WeChat because other fruit stands on campus were expensive, poor quality and inconvenient. In an interview, one student points out that “WeChat is a bit more agile [than Taobao]. A small entity can still have its own brand.”

As WeChat grows, new utilities emerge on the platform. Each increases the time users spend on WeChat’s platform thus reducing friction between users. The latest progression of this is the launch of Applets, which will allow developers to build full HTML5 apps on top of WeChat. 
 
What drove WeChat’s growth wasn’t the launch of any one feature. It was the individual fruit vendors, taxi cabs, and mom-and-pop shops that WeChat made life easier for. In the long run, this might be the winning strategy.
 
In 2015, 12,000 new companies were born on platforms like WeChat every day. The hive isn’t created from access to new functionality. It’s how new functionality creates new economic opportunity.

The Transformation of the Network to the Hive

The increase in the frequency of interaction and decreased communication friction of the hive can be traced to a move toward synchronicity between people over history. Once, a story passed down verbally from father to son turned into myth after a thousand years. The invention of writing and the first spread of literacy allowed the transmission of the first written history.
 
As technology has advanced, the delay between the transfer of information has decreased. Paved roads allowed couriers to deliver messages, while cables wired along those roads enabled telegraphs and then radio broadcasts. Eventually, you got email, instant messaging, SMS, camera phones, all the way up to live video.

As information networks become distributed from giant data centers to cellular towers and the cloud, the amount of bandwidth available to the individual continues to rise. We’re no longer limited to a broadcast radio model, where one signal is received by many nodes. Today, we send and receive higher quantities of data at higher frequencies, through texts, photos and videos. We sync with each other instantaneously, and all the time.
 
This is what allows networks to converge into hives, from the individual to the organization.

Instrumentalizing the Social Network

The function of the social network is to connect people and to grow the size of the network. What originally came about through increasing connections is now focused on delivering a better, more immediate experience.
 
 Facebook in 2012:

Our mission is to make the world more open and connected.

Facebook in 2016:

Our top priority is to build useful and engaging products that enable people to connect and share through mobile devices and personal computers.

In 2012, Snapchat described itself on its website as:

Snapchat is the fastest way to share a moment on iPhone — up to 10x faster than MMS!”

Today, the renamed Snap Inc.’s website reads:

We believe that reinventing the camera represents our greatest opportunity to improve the way people live and communicate.

Facebook and Snap Inc. are both converging around how we communicate and share experience, and they’re doing it by building a family of brands.

From the beginning, Snapchat has built itself around the camera and user experience. As the company moved from 1:1 communications to a broader platform for sharing experiences, this has not changed. 
 
Facebook’s efforts to mimic Snapchat’s ephemeral messages as well as its initiatives on products like Instagram Stories and its move into virtual reality through the acquisition of Oculus Rift all demonstrate a move away from the network, and toward a moments-driven hive. 
 
The original experience of Facebook was more connected, but also a lonely experience. You put one version of yourself online and lived another one in real life. The original Facebook showed a version of you that you wanted to see.
 
Rather than alienating people, Facebook and Snap Inc. today are moving toward a vision of the future around creating real, shared experiences that actually bring people together.

Google, Uber, Tesla and Autonomous Vehicles

The map is possibly the most literal rendering of the network. A map connects physical locations together, and shows you how to navigate from one point to another. The autonomous car is built on top of the map, but it’s instrumentalized around actually taking you between points.

  • Autonomous vehicles can be imagined because they’re built on top of the information networks of Google’s Maps and Streetview, projects that Google undertook to organize the world’s information.
  • At Tesla, they’re building autonomous electric vehicles on top of their network of vehicle sales, service centers and Supercharger stations. Self-driving Teslas have already collected 100 million miles of autonomous driving data and 780 million miles of human driving data from the sensors it builds into each vehicle.
  • Meanwhile, Uber is moving towards autonomous cars through the ride-sharing marketplace it has built. Through the Uber app, the company collects 100 million miles of driving data each day. In contrast, the average American only drives 15,000 miles a year.

Why are all these vastly different companies converging on the autonomous car? That’s because for these companies, it’s about platform and hive, not just about roads without drivers.

Google’s 10-K, 2016:

From the start, the company has always strived to do more, and to do important and meaningful things with the resources they have.

Uber’s blog, 2016:

The old Uber was black and white, somewhat distant and cold. This belied what Uber actually is — a transportation network, woven into the fabric of cities and how they move. To bring out this human side — the atoms — we’ve added color and patterns.

For Google, the search giant, it’s about putting information to work. It is leveraging its massive data sets, of roads, driver behavior, and physical objects, and continuously feeding data back to the system. Uber, meanwhile, has evolved from a white glove black car service into a transportation hive. Through logistics and cleaner, cheaper interfaces, Uber directs human actions more efficiently through algorithms. The autonomous car was the next logical step.

By allowing cars to get from A to B more predictably, autonomous cars will reduce the number of cars on the road, and the number of deaths in car accidents, and even the amount of money for insurance. The hive is what gives us a shot at collectively solving these seemingly impossible problems.

The Future is the Hivemind

A network’s value is traditionally tied to the idea of more—this is what’s known as a “network effect.” The more people and things there are networked, the more possible connections there are between nodes, and the more valuable the network grows.

And yet, the world we’re moving to will be defined by the idea of more with less. Global warming and drought mean fewer resources to work with. At the same time, population growth is beginning to stall across America and Europe, and with it the “free lunch” economic growth that comes with a rising population.

A hive is more than the sum of its parts. Through the hive, a network of drivers and riders also work as a turnkey resource that other services can be built on top of. For companies that operate as hives, sheer quantity matters less than it did for older generations of companies. By increasing interaction and decreasing friction between nodes, they accelerate growth through virtually unlimited, real-time access to data and people.

Hives colonize instinctively as they grow, which is why we’re seeing so many companies converge around the similar trends. But the sequence that they grow in matters. The next big companies will have to do more than just pick the right trends. They’ll have to nail the right timing by moving in sync with their composite parts.

They won’t just be hives. They’ll be hiveminds.

Markethive has already reached this hive mind level. Interesting that others are suspecting this phenomena and here we are! The original and first Market Network.

Market-Network: A New Type of Business Model

Market-Network: A New Type of Business Model

Social network. Marketplace. SaaS. These buzzwords are no longer synonyms of massive business opportunities.

The gold rush has already happened.

But a new business model has emerged.

Market-networks are hybrid animals: part social network, part marketplace, part SaaS. [1]

It’s a social network. Professionals use profile pages to showcase their work and demonstrate their credibility. They also connect with each other and build relationships.

It’s a marketplace. Professionals come online together to find other parties with whom they can do business.

It’s a SaaS tool. Professionals use the tools on the top of the marketplace to negotiate, do the job, or manage the paperwork.

Social networks are designed to connect people. Marketplaces are built to sell simple products and services at scale. SaaS tools are here to make your job easier.

Market-networks focus on more complex services; the types of services that are not easily scalable and require more human collaboration. [1]

So get your pick-axe and prepare yourself for the next gold rush.

Think about the number of opportunities in M&A, scientific research, construction, management consulting, marketing, media production…

[1] Thanks to James Currier for sharing his thoughts on this emerging business model.

[2] Here are a couple of examples:

AngelList is a market-network.

It’s a social network for startups and investors. It’s a marketplace where business angels can find startups to invest in and startups can post job openings. It’s a SaaS tool that helps business angels create syndicates and startups get introduced to business angels.

Contently is a market-network.

It’s a social network for freelance writers. It’s a marketplace where companies can find writers to create content—articles, eBooks, and other kinds of marketing collateral. It’s a SaaS tool that helps content marketers organize their editorial calendar, manage the writers’ work, and track the performance with analytics.
