Markethive Uses OAuth? What Is It?

Markethive Uses OAuth? What Is It? 

When setting up an account with a new service and they request registration via your social account, is it secure? What exactly is OAuth? 

To begin at a high level, OAuth is not an API or a service: it's an open standard for authorization and anyone can implement it. More specifically, OAuth is a standard that apps can use to provide client applications with “secure delegated access.” It’s like having a valet key to your car. 

Techno Babble: For the Techies

OAuth is an open standard for access delegation, commonly used as a way for Internet users to grant websites or applications access to their information on other websites but without giving them the passwords.

This mechanism is used by companies such as Amazon, Markethive, Google, Facebook, Microsoft, and Twitter to permit users to share information about their accounts with third-party applications or websites.

Generally, OAuth provides clients with a "secure delegated access" to server resources on behalf of a resource owner. It specifies a process for resource owners to authorize third-party access to their server resources without sharing their credentials. Designed specifically to work with Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP), OAuth essentially allows access tokens to be issued to third-party clients by an authorization server, with the approval of the resource owner. The third party then uses the access token to access the protected resources hosted by the resource server.[3]

OAuth is a service that is complementary to and distinct from OpenID. OAuth is also distinct from OATH, which is a reference architecture for authentication, not a standard for authorization. However, OAuth is directly related to OpenID Connect (OIDC) since OIDC is an authentication layer built on top of OAuth 2.0. OAuth is also distinct from XACML, which is an authorization policy standard. OAuth can be used in conjunction with XACML where OAuth is used for ownership consent and access delegation whereas XACML is used to define the authorization policies (e.g. managers can view documents in their region).

More easily explained for the Laymen:

When registering a new account in Markethive, we use OAuth. This cookie has a driven socket connection verification process that passes (with your permission) your “name, email and picture” from your selected account (Gmail, Yahoo, LinkedIn, Facebook, etc.) to our database, server, the blockchain, to verify who you are.

NOTE: It does not give us access to your Social account or additional data. It is strictly for setting up a new account and keeping it secure to you.

This process stores this data on our servers, blockchain, your wallet so we can validate that it is you coming and going to our secure encrypted dashboard of services. This adds a huge layer of security for you and the community.

This process does not give us your password or access to your social or email account. It is like you knocked on the door to come in. We request your ID and note the serial number and confirm through a 3rd party that ID number name your photo is you and we give you an access badge to enter.

Markethive uses 128 bit SSL security for our dashboards as well, so all information traveling from your device to our system is highly encrypted.

Markethive is also in the process of implementing OpenID, which will be using a 2FA process via Google Authenticator until our Crypto wallets are released, then the 2FA process will run through them.

We also request a working cell phone number for further security sending additional verification to that number for things like credit card changes, additions, coin transfers, etc.

After passing through the OAuth and 2FA your freedom to travel throughout the Markethive system as you are granted. Only you have access to this information and only you can terminate your account and this information. No one else can. This is the reason we embrace OAuth and blockchain. It keeps your data under your control and no one else.

So when you decide to join Markethive, your security is our highest priority. Gone from our system is the aged old process and the very nonsecure process of entering fields with your name, email, phone, etc. then retrieving a verification email with a validation link.

This is why you are seeing this type of registration becoming commonplace. This process also prevents 3rd parties from tracking you on our secure distributed security data system.

Notably, verification through OAuth guarantees email delivery to your inbox and not your spam folder and completely negates “fake” accounts and spammy email addresses. 

We invite you to take Markethive for a ride and see for yourself what we are building. If you are not satisfied just navigate to your account settings and press the Delete Button. You will "NUKE" all your data and it'll be completely destroyed. No logs, no backups.

Markethive receives over 2,211,150  unique visitors a month and currently has an Alexa Ranking of 22,374  as verified and published by Worth Of Web.com. https://www.worthofweb.com/website-value/markethive.com/

A Complete System Within A Markethive Group – Very Powerful

.

A Complete System Within A Markethive Group – Very Powerful

What makes Markethive Groups So Unique? 

Markethive Groups are somewhat similar to Facebook groups but can also be considered a self-replication system for capture pages, customized PDFs, video exchanges, training, autoresponder options, survey sites and capture forms customized exclusively for every member of the group. This is extremely powerful. 

Integrated into Markethive Groups are the Capture Pages, Autoresponders with 98% deliverability, Blogcasting and a Blogging Platform where Blogs and Articles are easier to produce and more effective, integrated with Markethive SNAP Plugins creating incredible reach to potentially billions across the social media and blogging platforms achieving real SEO results. Also, Co-Op Marketing, and URL Rotators. This creates traction thereby yielding better results.


 

 

Let’s Start With Capture Pages…

Capture pages also known as funnel pages is an industry all to itself and there are literally 1000s of Capture page gurus and 100s of companies selling their capture page systems to you. But in all this, I see a glaring problem and that is the human nature to complicate a simple solution.

The solution is the simplicity of the system and the simplicity of the message. Markethive gives you very simple responsive capture pages. Our capture widgets gather all the data for your signups via Oauth which means they choose one of their current social networks and click on it and the signup process is completed. One-click. Done!

We also offer calendar-based capture pages, video embedded options, default videos or your selection. Our Thumbnails are Markethive’s simplest one-page capture page and our Capture pages do allow you to build complex websites, although we do not recommend you do, many of our subscribers appreciate the option.

We even build capture pages for other opportunity companies and are constantly adding new designs into the system. The entire capture page system is included in the free platform and other capture page services out there charge up to $200 per month for similar systems.

 

Co-Op Marketing

You can facilitate large scale Cooperative Advertising. Manage sophisticated marketing campaigns funded by group contributions to Ad Co-ops. Cooperative marketing by teams of people allows your group to engage in advertising at a level that far exceeds what individual team members can do on their own. There is a natural limit to what any one person can do alone, but by working together with a larger group larger advertising opportunities come into reach.

The concept of Ad Co-op's is simple. A group of people gets together to fund an advertising campaign and each contributes a certain amount to fund it. Some may have more money to invest than others. Once the funding goal is met and advertising is launched, the business it generates is then equitably distributed back to each person based on the amount they contributed.

This tool allows you to track the contributions by your group to the Advertising Co-op's you are managing as well as the advertising costs that offset them. Once you have funded a co-op and are ready to launch it, the system will automatically calculate the appropriate number of shares each member should be assigned and will apply that to the Lead Capture Page of your choice or else a Website Rotator which you can use with your own domain or websites.

Remember, this service is available to free members. Or you can share in Markethive’s million-dollar Ad Campaigns with an Entrepreneur Upgrade of $100/mth inclusive.

The URL Rotator Feature

This is Traffic flow management through website rotation. You can control the distribution of traffic, customers, and leads to multiple destinations. The Website Rotator tool allows you to configure a unique URL that will then rotate and display a list of other websites you define. You can use it to transfer traffic from one of your sites to several others. Or if you work with a team of people, the entire Group can promote a single URL which will then automatically distribute the traffic to each member's individual website.

You can add an unlimited number of websites to each rotator. There are 2 different rotation types. Circular will simply rotate through each website, one by one. Shared Ratio allows you to weight certain URLs so they receive a certain number of visits before the rotation continues. So you have a URL Rotator,  able to Customize Campaigns and designate to Groups. This is totally unlimited and can be tracked through Markethive’s Tracking Reports.

 

Tiny URL Converter – BONUS! 

Convert long URLs in to short ones, for simplified posting, emailing, tweeting, etc. The Tiny URL tool lets you convert a long URL into a nice short URL, making it much easier to use in social posts, email, as well as take up fewer characters in your tweets when using Twitter. But beyond creating a friendlier URL, the system will also track visitor statistics for you – making it the perfect tool to evaluate your promotional results, better understand what your target audience is interested in, and optimize your social, email, and other marketing campaigns.

You can even use the Tiny URL tool in combination with the Website Rotator tool to result in a tidy little URL that automatically rotates to the websites you define. Very powerful, particularly for teams working together to promote a single URL.

 

The Next Level In The Works 

As we are developing Markethive’s Super Groups that are next level, this is your Unfair Advantage in marketing.  You can use the Markethive tools, to build an exclusive secure suite of tools available to your organization only.  Customized and duplicating capture pages, an Integrated duplicated signup application plugged into your MLM company, customized and personalized PDF documents, coop ad campaigns, targeted lead distributions, live event systems, and membership activity management, also award assignments, enhanced by the monetization with the necessary API’s and all included in the interface of the landing page. 

Stay tuned for updates on the development of the different facets of the Super Group and implementation. Your team will expand with lightning speed due to the intuitive duplicative power and viral nature of this system.

 

WE ARE ALL ENTREPRENEURS 

Reid Hoffman is quoted saying 

“An entrepreneur is someone who jumps off a cliff, and builds a plane on his way down.” I get it, do you?

All the features mentioned above have huge benefits and a small but integral part of Markethive’s Ecosystem for free members. There will be so much more as we roll out our official launch. A major benefit is that it is incorporated into a transparent blockchain system, the platform is completely decentralized delivering on Markethive’s principles of privacy, transparency, and free speech.

Markethive does not spy on you; shadowban you, or terminate your account, for any reason

We are all entrepreneurs, and we know the future can have the greatest potential for those who take command of their dreams.

Markethive is Not Just About IDEAS. It’s About Making Ideas HAPPEN!

Who Will Have The “Edge” In 2019 And Beyond?

.

Who Will Have The “Edge” In 2019 And Beyond?

A lot happened in 2018, the demise of ICO’s, the bear market that didn’t quit, devastating for some, cathartic for others. All in all, it’s been a year to sort the wheat from the chaff. A year of experiences that had to happen to see the rise of companies and startups that have survived, follow-through, particularly those that have utilized blockchain technology. Greater trends are materializing and 2019 will see them come to fruition. 

We are in the Web 3.0 phase and ultimately the companies that focus on ideology, as well as product-market fit, have the edge. They require and advocate their ideology from day 1 as the final product and from there all else follows. Web 3.0 companies then demonstrate a profit function along with early product-market fit. Given the not-so-savory crypto-based startups that have tainted the new upcoming technology, along with the scandal surrounding Social Media, the masses are looking for an alternative with ethics and humanitarian nuances. The norm of allowing social platforms to use your activities, content, and conversations for their benefit is over. Your voice is yours and yours alone and you should benefit from it. 

 

Who and what is Markethive?

Markethive is recognized as the next phase having evolved from Social Networks. This is the next generation – Market Network. Built on the blockchain, it provides security, privacy to the entrepreneur, offers a fluid, collaborative culture that is a decentralized, autonomous environment which creates intellectual achievements, social habits, innovation, music, literature, technology, and commerce. This provides a social environment complete with all the inbound marketing tools of the latest technology, that champions the rise of the Entrepreneur.
 

The Ideology of Markethive

To have a predominantly free system that allows freedom of speech, total privacy and transparency, promoting education for the youth through to the seasoned entrepreneur providing support, network, tools and motivation to experience entrepreneurialism, sovereignty and success resulting in a complete ecosystem with universal income.

Markethive is creating a social network that is integrated with state of the art blockchain, cryptocurrency, and inbound marketing technology. Because Markethive is decentralized, autonomous and controlled by its entrepreneurs and holders of MARKETHIVE, its coin (MHV), will share and benefit from its success.  The company has started producing the Markethive Coin (MHV) and it’s interesting to note the total number of coins being mined is 8,888,888,888 to be exact. 

 

Markethive’s Product-Market Fit

With a history of over 20 years in Inbound Marketing, including SaaS, CRM, and CMS, Markethive does have the edge and is on track to bring proven products and services to a much needy market. It is essentially the process of attracting prospects via content creation, creating brand awareness and integrity leading to a healthy relationship with the customer. These marketing tools that have been consistently successful over the years are now integrated with blockchain technology which resolves the issues notorious with centralized platforms, making it a fairer, more autonomous experience for the entrepreneur.

The free Inbound marketing platform built on a social media interface incorporates blogging, email marketing & automation complete with cutting-edge autoresponders, social media monitoring & publishing, SEO & analytics, landing page creation, all of which the Markethive member is paid to learn and utilize these products and services. In addition, the Entrepreneur 8 point program provides lucrative opportunities to manifest multiple streams of income, thus creating Universal Income. 

 

Markethive’s Focus Is On CLV –  the “Pièce De Résistance”

Customer Lifetime Value (CLV) is the amount of value a customer contributes to your business over their lifetime. It starts with a new customer’s first purchase, contract or subscription and ends when they cease buying the product or cancel their subscription. This is called the “moment of churn.”

Markethive has changed the playing field for what is known as the Customer Lifetime Value. As their ethos is about collaboration and relationships, they have blurred the line, or merged the line, between "customer" and "connection".

Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter create "connections"
eBay, Amazon, Freelancer, create "customers"

Markethive delivers "associates" that are both connections and customers, so the value and longevity are far more valuable and more likely to build into long-term clients. Markethive has the technology that captures the information from leads that are worth a minimum of $200 each if you were to buy them. Their Loyalty Program (in development) makes the leads even more valuable.

 

Conclusion – The New Era

Blockchain technology provides new infrastructure to build the next innovative applications beyond cryptocurrencies. It'll drive profound, positive changes across business, communities, and society.  Simply put, there is privacy, transparency and any data or information stays the ownership of the user, not the company where it can be sold or shared for profit. Markethive, coupled with the blockchain has been implemented on a social media platform making it decentralized. 

It's becoming well-known the oligarchs have been in a data selling scandal and many users are up in arms about it and fed up. Facebook, Google, Twitter, and LinkedIn are all centralized and also need to make a profit for its shareholders somehow. Blockchain-based Companies like Markethive, derive their profit from the projects that are underpinning it, plus the products and services they deliver, therefore they are able to give back to its users in many forms, including remuneration for using the platform. In essence, they give the power back to the people.

Markethive Embraces Crypto Faucet Technology – Everyone Benefits

Markethive Embraces Crypto Faucet Technology – Everyone Benefits

History And Purpose Of Cryptocurrency Faucets

Before we get into what defines a digital or alternative currency faucet, let’s first go back to the beginning of the Bitcoin network to provide some historical background for those who aren’t familiar with Bitcoin or cryptocurrency jargon. For many, navigating the realm of Bitcoin is commonplace; however, there are still a lot of people who, although they may have heard of Bitcoin, know very little about it. It’s hard to imagine, but there are even some haven’t even heard of it.

 

The Genesis Of Bitcoin

On January 3, 2009, Satoshi Nakamoto launched the Bitcoin network version 0.1 (“Genesis Block”), the world’s first wholly decentralized cryptographic financial structure. Nakamoto “mined” the initial 50 BTC from the Genesis Block of the very first blockchain and from which all other Bitcoins have sprung.

Popular speculation is that Satoshi Nakamoto does not exist, at least not as an individual. This moniker is more than likely an anonymous “alias” or an assumed name taken by the person who actually created Bitcoin, or perhaps even stemming from a group effort, with all members wanting to remain anonymous.

It was quickly recognized by certain people that it would be wise to get some “in case this catches on”, as early users could become very rich. It was estimated that if Bitcoin would become the global reserve currency, each Bitcoin could be worth as much as $10 million – that price prediction is per EACH Bitcoin!

Fast forward to May 18, 2010, which is when it’s been said the first real monetary purchase with bitcoin took place when Laszlo Hanyecz offered 10,000 for anyone who would order him a pizza, and someone did. The value of each Bitcoin in this instance was approximately $0.0025. At today’s value of BTC, the 10,000 coins in the example would be worth over $63 million.

 

What Exactly Is A Faucet?

A bitcoin or alternative cryptocurrency faucet is either a website or an app that gives out free bitcoins, which appeals to and attracts users by way of rewarding them with Satoshis. The Satoshi is the smallest unit of the bitcoin currency recorded on the blockchain. It is a one hundred millionth of a single bitcoin (0.00000001 BTC). The unit has been named in collective homage to the original creator of Bitcoin for completing simple tasks as described. These assignments normally require little human maintenance or intervention to administer while producing results. This is a great way for people to “get their feet wet” while earning BTC, all without risk. This “try before you buy”  introduction allows new users to experiment risk-free before putting in any real money. 

Faucets provide a valuable way to popularize cryptocurrencies while attracting new users.

The first bitcoin faucet (The Bitcoin Faucet) was created in Mid-2010 by Gavin Andresen. This first faucet originally gave out 5 bitcoins per person — worth around a penny in 2010, but worth about $57,000 today (to put into perspective, back in 2014 these same 5 coins would have only been worth around $4,000).

Since then, the number of alternative cryptocurrencies or Altcoins has become available and stands at over 1600 and growing. Many have lost their luster and won’t survive or at least won’t increase in value. The few stronger ones with a purpose and underpinned by solid technology will survive and have created a faucet system. 

 

What Is The Purpose of a Faucet?

Faucets can help with orientation of those individuals who are new to cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin or to other Altcoins. The bulk of faucets provide education and instruction to new users while giving them some free coins so that they can “earn as they learn” without risk. This allows for practice with one or more “test runs” before they would feel comfortable enough to move forward, putting in their own money. Since this whole “adventure” is relatively new and overwhelming or confusing to newcomers, the faucet provides a useful way to promote the use of cryptocurrencies, while at the same time attracting new users.

Faucets are heavily trafficked sites. It is not all that challenging to get a vast amount of page views and visits per day to any website handing out what represents money for free. A faucet can also provide a tremendous way in which to promote other products, services or content, especially to the new users.

It’s one thing to create a well-liked faucet to attract new users while maintaining their existing database in what is a highly competitive market. However, without promotion of extra value to the site’s visitors and users, it’s almost impossible to even make enough to cover the expense of the coins you are giving away. The only real way in which to generate profit from a faucet is by seeing needs and/or what’s trending in the marketplace (namely online via the internet), and then offering something additional to the users that are unique and useful. This can make a site particularly attractive, setting it apart from all the rest, while creating much in the way of value for users.  If done right, this is also what can get the site to go “viral”, as news spreads very quickly via the net.

 

Conventional Wisdom: A Referral System.

Commonplace is for faucets to have some sort of referral program, where even more is “given away” and existing users referring new ones are rewarded with either a pro-rated amount of the new users' earnings from the faucet or perhaps some sort of pre-determined set amount by way of a matching bonus.

The creation of a faucet means the establishment of a payment processor or in this case a cryptocurrency wallet. A cryptocurrency wallet stores the keys (public and private) which can be used to receive or spend a cryptocurrency. Once created, the owner of the faucet then loads some bitcoin or other alternative crypto coins into their wallet. Then, payments for users are distributed to each person’s appropriate wallet, according to the site’s rates as outlined. These payments can then be transferred and converted into fiat currency creating liquidity. 

 

The main revenue source for faucets is marketing/advertising. Faucets attempt to acquire more users by giving away free coins for motivation. There are even some advertising, marketing sites or networks who will pay using bitcoins or other altcoins. In and of themselves, faucets normally provide very low-profit margins or ROI. Some faucets also make money by “mining” altcoins in the background.

Markethive Taking Faucets To Another Level [MHV]

Markethive Airdrops

Markethive is determined to take a large share of the new Market Network that is the next generation following the Social Network phenomena. That Market Network is defined as a platform that is integrated with a social network (like Facebook), SAAS tools (like GoToMeeting, ZOOM and Google Apps) commerce platforms (like eBay, Freelancers, Coinbase, Alibaba).

Markethive has created its own consumer coin, MHV, as an instrument to their Ecosystem for Entrepreneurs. So Markethive will establish their niche as the only social (Market) Network that has an infinity Airdrop and a system that rewards the users for using it with additional micropayments, otherwise known as a Faucet.

Bottom line, by joining Markethive you will get a Market Network Inbound Marketing platform worth $2500 per month for free and get “Airdropped” paid up to 500 Markethive coins [MHV] just for joining. And continue to receive these coin assets for the duration of your life within the hive. At present, MHV is valued at $0.23 on the Raisex Exchange and coinranking.com. This means your Airdrop of 500 MHV is worth $115 USD! 

Markethive Faucet System

The Markethive platform pays you micropayments of MHV, similar to faucets. After you have 3+ people subscribed into the free Markethive Network via your profile page, the faucet, micropayment system activates and from there on, all activity within the system pays you small but consistent coinage to your wallet daily. Being the entire system runs on Markethive coin, you can expect the volume demand and increased velocity of the coin to also drive coin value accordingly. This is one of the main reasons we refer to our system as being a legitimate alternative to universal income, one based on ethics and integrity, not government-mandated theft and graft. 

Notably, it is not just another payment service provider other Social Media platforms have adopted. You actually earn MHV Coins and now is a perfect time to accumulate your coins. When the Markethive Exchange is implemented into the system, you’ll be able to convert it into the currency of your choice. 

Get Paid to Learn

Markethive is truly dedicated to your education, success, and sovereignty. Not only have 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, 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), 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?

 

Conclusion 

The Markethive coin will not be dependent upon speculative value as is the case with other cryptocurrencies and platforms, thereby creating eternal economic velocity in the entrepreneur ecosystem within Markethive. This is a fundamental difference to the other systems currently out there today.  The Markethive system has been developed to produce revenue in the traditional sense with the added benefits of the blockchain taking it to the next level.

The Faucet system is a reward system similar to Hive Rank but earns you coin for your activities. As I mentioned earlier, the first Faucet invented was the Bitcoin faucet launched by Gavin Andresen, one of the earliest Bitcoin developers, in June 2010. At that time Bitcoin was about 8 cents. It gave out 5 Bitcoins a day until 2011 when it ran out of coins. Markethive has embraced this reward system and applied it to the many marketing and communications aspects within Markethive.  The big what if, is…in 10 years will Markethive coin have a similar rise in value? I will let you ponder that ageless question.

EMAIL & AUTORESPONDERS – THE MARKETHIVE DIFFERENCE

.

EMAIL & AUTORESPONDERS – THE MARKETHIVE DIFFERENCE

After decades since the inception of Email Marketing, this technology is still one of the most widely used channels for communication today, particularly with entrepreneurs, marketers and business owners. It’s helped many startups grow into multi-billion dollar companies. Autoresponders and email advertising tools are probably the most essential parts of your business. You utilize it to follow-up with clients. To keep individuals returning to your site. To build loyalty. To create sales. 

The unfortunate side of email is spam and although spam filters do a good job of detecting junk and send it straight to the spam folder, many organizations’ legitimate emails end up in the spam folder. If your subscribers don’t see your emails, they can’t open, click or convert. The other downside is that Sprites are commonly used in some email systems which is essentially spying on the recipient.

 

DID YOU KNOW:

Markethive’s free platform is designed to give you what no one else has or ever will. This complete Inbound Marketing and Social Media Network can offer this because Markethive has developed the technology and have a greater vision into the future than most businesses do. Markethive Autoresponders are built by the original inventor of autoresponders back in 1996, Thomas Prendergast, CEO and Co-Founder of Markethive.

Co-Founder and CEO of Markethive, Thomas Prendergast states.

“We know you struggle beyond description to survive and we are here to assist you to do better than that.  This is why I took the action to make available to you for free for life. This is the Markethive platform ‘example’:”

Markethive Autoresponders will beat the competition at any price. Our emails deliver 99% of the time, “To the Inbox”. There is no need to warn your subscribers to “Check their Spam Folder”. 

This is incredible and just based on that, we just handed you an email system that Aweber ($29); Getresponse ($28); TrafficWave ($17); MailChimp ($10) and Constant Contact ($15) charged as a monthly subscription and will charge you over $50 a month or more for a system allowing only 2500+ leads or subscribers with an average inbox delivery of 70%. Markethive has no limit on how many campaigns, leads or subscribers you acquire either. It’s unlimited and totally for FREE, with a 99.97% INBOX delivery.

 

Email Delivery Rates

Email deliverability rates can really make or break an email marketing campaign. Primarily, email campaigns and autoresponders use a capture page opt-in form to collect data, being a name, email and often times a phone number. This takes time and usually a number of steps to complete. You then in some cases need to go to your email to verify it. It is well documented that the more steps in the signup form process, the more likely prospects will be lost for lack of follow-through. Email verification can reduce lead conversion up to 50%, delayed verification and delivery to spam folder reduce conversion up to 90%. 

The Markethive Difference

The Markethive email system is unique in that our capture technology uses OAuth Technology to capture the data of a potential lead or subscriber. This virtually guarantees the data is legitimate and the email is clean and not from a spam trap often acquired through web site harvesting. The actions available to build email lists in Markethive are via Markethive Capture Widgets, Markethive Capture pages, Markethive Blogs, and Markethive Profile pages. This guarantees email quality unlike anyone else and delivers members of Markethive, their subscribers and lead prospects’ email delivery “to the Inbox” of nearly 100%. 

When registering through the OAuth Technology it utilizes a driven socket connection verification process that passes, with your permission, your Name, Email, and photo from your selected account, either Gmail, Yahoo, LinkedIn or Facebook to the database, server and in Markethive’s case, the Blockchain. This verifies who you are and in no way gives Markethive access to your account or additional data. This adds a huge layer of security for you and the community and ensures email deliverability success.

 

Email Company Comparisons

Contact him to find out how you can increase your Presence and Reach to billions across many Social Media and Blogging platforms. This negates the need to visit each and every site, every day to promote your business. 

The new Layout in the image above is under development at present but when it's integrated, you will find it on the menu at your profile page settings under Social Networks. At the moment there are some Social Networks already there where you can hook them up by clicking on each one and following the prompts. That will ensure your account at Markethive is linked to your other Social Media accounts. You will then be able to utilize the features explained below…

 

Now let’s delve into the workings of Markethive’s Blogging System, the features and benefits of Blogcasting…

What Is Blogcasting

If you were to do a Google search on the word Blogcasting, you would find this definition: 

“A blogcast is simply the combination of a blog and podcast into a single Web site. A blog is a weblog or journal, that is available on the Internet. A podcast is an audio or video file that you share with visitors or subscribers to your site.”

A New Definition

Markethive now has this terminology to mean something very powerful.“Blogcasting” is a play on the word “Broadcasting”, which is the term used to simultaneously transmit the same message to multiple recipients, commonly done through an email system. Blogcasting is the reach that goes beyond this technology. It gives you the ability for an unlimited amount of people to subscribe to your blog through all social media and blogging platforms which could literally have millions of followers notified of your blog.

In the traditional sense of broadcasting, usually, only the people who physically subscribe to your blog or newsletter are notified of your updates via email. With this blogcasting system, all your social networks are informed of your blog as and when you publish them. This means the potential reach is into the millions. 

For example, If I subscribe to your blog and I have 20,000 followers across all my social media accounts, and you have 15,000 subscribers each with a similar following, your blogs have now been potentially seen by around 300,000,000 people which by enlarge are not directly subscribed to you. This is called a “reach” and extremely powerful. 

Blogging is not new, and it’s proven to be the best way to market, nurture relationships and brand yourself as an expert in your field building trust which in turn increases followers, client base and sales. It is also known as Content Marketing. Markethive with their proprietary Blogcasting system has certainly made it exponentially more powerful.  They have certainly added fun, understanding, reach, groups, daily workshops, understanding and power to the process.

Markethive has not only successfully combined all the technical and tactical aspects and requirements into one system, but have also overcome the obstacles to make blogging a group process, combined with motivated mentors to help the newbie easily immerse and embrace the process.

Word Press has been around for years and known to be the world leader in Blogging platforms. Markethive recognizes this and has significantly taken Word Press serious and made it exponentially better. This blog’s focus is to help you understand the paradigm dynamic shift Markethive has brought to marketing, blogging and the individual within the hive.

 

The Blog Cloud 

 

The following video attempts to reveal and illustrate how the whole social blogging platform in Markethive changes the entire Internet field of engagement.

The Reach Blog Cloud by Markethive

Markethive’s Inbound Marketing platform delivers a blogging system built for the beginner, sophisticated for the intermediate and an extremely powerful platform that advanced professional bloggers will appreciate. The system is designed for the easy development of a complete blog system, yet advanced and easily set up to be the engine that powers your WordPress blogs. 

The blogs are Google friendly. When your blogs are shared and consequently clicked on, they move up in the search rankings. If you’re providing quality content, your readers will want others to know. Of course, the only way to make sure your blogs contribute to your website’s popularity is to create unique content, provide answers for visitors, and then share your blogs wherever you can. 

That key point “Share your blogs wherever you can” is another way of saying “Broadcast” them. And Markethive has taken Broadcasting to new heights with Blogcasting.  Blogcasting is a Markethive subscribe feature that other Markethive members use to subscribe to your Markethive blog. When they subscribe (and the potential is 1000s of them), your blog posts are automatically posted to their Facebook Newsfeeds, LinkedIn activity feeds and your Twitter tweets feed.

When you understand that this downstream of subscribers, fellow entrepreneurs at Markethive, are exposing their connections to your message, they are lifting you up, increasing your popularity and building greater branding for you.

Through the News Feed and Blogcasting, it is possible to promote any and all products and services on a global scale with a reach into the millions. Markethive receives on average 250,000 visitors daily. The reason is that when people make searches if the content on my blog is what they are after then they will find me! 96% of the traffic is non-member related. So the majority of the people I am addressing on my blog does not even belong to the site. 


 

Then there is the Blog Sharing feature that also allows your fellow Markethive entrepreneurs to import your blog posts to their WordPress blogs using the SNAP plugin increasing your message (your posts) to another 25 of their social networks, Facebook Pages, LinkedIn company pages, StumbleUpon, Tumbler, Livejournal, Blogspot, etc, exponentially increasing your exposure and adding to your backlinks.

When you discover the responsibility this represents that you show respect, produce quality content to your loyal downstream, you now have the opportunity to build a huge popular following.

Content Curation: What Is It? What Are The Benefits? 

.

Content Curation: What Is It? What Are The Benefits? 

What is Content Curation?

Content curation is a term that has been used in various contexts. Most marketers are familiar with the practice of sharing other people’s content on social networks, what we’ll refer to as social content curation. Content curation actually covers much more than just social sharing and can help your content marketing results in so many other ways. 

Content Marketing is known by any smart marketer to be the pinnacle of any and all marketing strategies. Content is the foundation of your lead generation efforts – if it inspires, educates, and gives answers to your visitors’ questions. Only then it will convert. In other words, your content must resonate with your audience to be effective. 

What’s more, content curation can assist the different departments of your company to share knowledge or reinforce training programs. If you’re just getting started with Content Marketing, then you may find this blog interesting.

 

A Definition Of Content Curation

Beth Kanter, probably the most knowledgeable influencer in curated content, explains what content curation means: 

“Content curation is the process of sorting through the vast amounts of content on the web and presenting it in a meaningful and organized way around a specific theme. The work involves sifting, sorting, arranging, and publishing information. A content curator cherry picks the best content that is important and relevant to share with its community.”

 

What Is The Curator’s Role? 

Let’s take a good look at the details in 3 steps; 

1. Select

As there is a colossal, ever-increasing amount of data on the web, the curator needs to emphasize the best already existing content on a specific topic. Monitoring the best sources in any given industry and be on the lookout for new ones is first and foremost.

Obviously, the curator would need to evaluate the quality of the source and be able to distinguish the good pieces from the bad ones. This will avoid sharing content of poor quality (or false) and set you apart from the surrounding noise that already exists on the internet. Choosing good quality content is not only the first step of the process, but it’s the cornerstone of content curation as well.  There’s no good curation without good content.

2. Edit & Enrich

To make the distinction between a wise content curator from a simple user who shares content on social media, the difference is clear, expertise. As the curator, you are seen as an expert in your field. You need to add value, provide context to the piece of content you have selected. At this stage, it’s not just about hitting publish, it’s also about editing the post or blog. Beyond simple formatting, bringing context to your audience adds value and helps establish yourself as a thought leader and show your expertise.

3. Share

If you as the curator take the time to select and enrich a piece of content, the next step is to share it to meet your audience. Curation is usually intended for a targeted audience, but it could be done for larger audiences, publicly.  When your blogs are shared and consequently clicked on, they move up in the search rankings. If you’re providing quality content, your readers will want others to know. Of course, the only way to make sure your blogs contribute to your website’s popularity is to value add to your content, provide answers for visitors, and then share your blogs to millions using the Markethve Blogcasting feature.

Notably, content curation is not necessarily public. It can be used for sharing knowledge internally. Companies want to leverage their employees’ knowledge and need them store, share, categorize and disseminate it to the largest possible number. Curation is a good answer to that. The main objective is that everyone can carry on with the same amount of information and is able to make the right decisions. 

Also with Markethive’s ability (feature) to create unlimited Groups each with a different cocktail of content curated, aggregated or from multiple Group memberships, the options to produce meaningful unique content for unlimited WordPress blogs controlled from within Markethive is unlimited. Groups are excellent platforms for blogging. Simply set up a Curating Group for yourself and Swipe the blogs in Markethive as a collection of content you may want to use in your publications

 

The Benefits Of Content Curation

If curating content means finding the most relevant content in your space and presenting it to your audience, then the main objective – and benefit – should be to show that you are knowledgeable about your domain by relating the most useful information available to your audience. Yet, there are many more benefits that attract marketers to integrate curated content into their content marketing strategy. Some of these benefits are:

  • Keeping a social media presence: Content curation allows to share great content on social media regularly.

  • Feeding your website: many marketers, and especially marketers who don’t have time to create content to feed their website. Using content curation and integrate it into their website is an easy way to do so.

  • Scaling your content production: If you find yourself buried in marketing tasks and don’t have enough time to write a complete blog article every week, content curation allows you to publish more content easily.

  • Be credible: With content curation, you will show that you are not the only one to give a certain argument.

  • Establish thought leadership: Sharing the gems in your domain will help you establish as a thought leader.

  • Building brand awareness: As you can work your own online reputation with content curation, you can also build your brand awareness;

  • Sending love to influencers in your space and interact with the actors in your space: By curating content from influencers and other actors in your industry, you will be identified by them and they will be glad to be quoted.

  • Increasing your traffic from search: Sharing fresh, regular and quality content on your website will help you get better SEO rankings for your content and get more traffic from search.

  • Creating a space for efficient social selling activities. Social selling is all about using social media to generate relationships, leads, and eventually, sales. The people who do social selling – entrepreneurs and salespeople – are connectors. They aren’t necessarily content creators or writers, and they would find it nearly impossible to keep up with the demands of a sale job as well as write a blog post everyday. 

Content curation is not only helpful for marketing, but it will also be useful in market intelligence too:

  • Sharing knowledge with your colleagues in order to get better collectively.

  • Monitoring what is being said about your industry: It keeps you posted on what is being published in your space by experts, magazines, competitors, etc. You know what your audience likes to read (given the number of shares of the articles) and you can curate accordingly to answer questions your audience is asking.

 

Formats

After you have found the articles you think would be interesting for your audience, there are four different – and complementary – ways you can curate them. Most marketers already practice social content curation, i.e. sharing other people’s content on social networks, but this is not the only nor the most efficient way curated content can be used to reach marketing objectives.

1. Social Content Curation

When you find a good article on the web and you share it on your company profile (with or without a little note saying ‘great piece’ or ‘a new take on’, etc.), you’re doing social content curation. Social curation is the most spread out form of curation you can find. It is easy to do, it allows you to keep a social media presence even if you don’t have time to write original content, and it helps you get noticed by the other actors in your space (because you’re sharing their content).

2. Curated Blog Posts

A curated blog post is an article on your blog that starts with a quote and a link to another piece of content. You’re using an existing piece as your introduction, and then you add your own commentary/insight to it, making it your own.

3. Curated Content Groups In Markethive

A curated content group is a place where you aggregate your own content and curated content to provide easy navigation and presentation of content with your added insights to introduce it. A curated content group is a great way to show your entire expertise and thought leadership on any given topic.

4. Curated Email Newsletters 

A curated email newsletter provides a useful and engaging roundup on a given topic by combining your own original content and curated posts. This can be done with the Email Autoresponder feature in Markethive. Just one of the many features available to you as a free member.

 

How To Curate The Right Way?

To curate content in an effective way you should:

  • Select carefully the piece of content you want to curate. It must be fresh and of good quality. No need to share every single piece everybody shares. You have to know why you curate it.

  • Be careful with the layout. Whatever media, it’s easier to read when well-formatted. Titles should be catchy, images have to be polished and the subject has to be clearly identified.

  • Systematically quote the source, it’s a golden rule. The author must be mentioned and a link must go to the original article.

  • A short quote yes, a copy/paste no! Don’t copy the article and make sure to mention the author – those two rules go hand in hand! It’s important not to make another piece of content yours – for ethical reasons obviously, but also for SEO purposes (Google blames severely duplicate content).

  • Broadcast it at the right place. Be logical when it comes to your audience and your objectives.

 

Copyright Directive 

With recent legislation enacted in March 2019, namely Article 11 (link tax) and Article 13 This law is designed to stop users uploading copyrighted content by forcing platforms to build massive filters or face huge lawsuits and fines.  Markethive simply gives you your own domain for all your content, videos and images to originate from. 

Solution

When you join Markethive you receive (for free) a CPanel control panel and WordPress system built into your assigned domain, a subdomain of hivesfeed.com AKA username.hivesfeed.com. This way you control all your content, without the worry or hassles of government overreach and anti-freedom regulations designed to stifle the start-ups and small entrepreneur.

 

Free System – Free Speech

All of this for free incorporated into a transparent blockchain system, the platform is completely decentralized delivering on our principles of privacy, transparency, and free speech.
We are not spying on you; shadow banning you; or terminating accounts, for any reason

Conclusion 

By blogging, you build relationships with your readers, position yourself as an expert in the field, and perhaps most importantly, provide new content for Google to index.

By joining Markethive you build relationships with thousands of others who are actively building a business, blogging, researching, etc. basically being “entrepreneurs” and advancing their businesses and agendas.

Ethical Technology – A Real Opportunity

.

Ethical Technology – A Real Opportunity

Incentivized Social Media & Marketing Platforms

2019 will be the springboard into new more ethical technologies in the years to come. Last year we saw the demise of many ICOs and outright crypto scams. We’ve also seen how users of huge Tech companies are extremely disgruntled and are challenging the way the conglomerates are using their data, manipulating the behavior of users, building AI, joining forces with certain government agencies. The community is now seeking a more humane and advanced technology as they demand ethical consideration. This has given rise to new business models that are not reliant on harvesting or advertising. 

 

What Is Incentivized Social Media?

As it stands now, incentivized Social Media is recognized as blogging platforms mainly, like Steemit and Yours.org. Steemit being the market leader, pays its users to contribute by writing or curating content, as opposed to Facebook and Twitter which harvest user’s data. In the case of Yours.org, the community pays to view the articles that are posted by the writer. This can range from $0.10 to a few dollars depending on how much the writer believes the readers will be willing to pay to view it. Both Yours and Steemit have an upvoting system that also pays. Yours pays in BCH. Steemit in their three native digital currencies: SteemPower, Steem Dollars, and Steem, which can then be converted into BTC or other cryptos on 3rd party exchanges. 

 

But what about the-not-so savvy or avid Writer or Blogger? 

Is there anywhere on Social Media where they can earn for their efforts and time? What about the marketer? Instead of paying to advertise their product, is there somewhere they can go where they get rewarded for their marketing efforts? What about the complete Newbie? Is there a place where they can learn how to market, curate, and learn the fundamentals of the platform while getting paid to do so? 

Blockchain Technology and the cryptocurrency sphere have enabled businesses to align themselves with the users’ need to be in control of their data and how they use their time to monetize their efforts. There is one launching in 2019, with their mandate being the rise of the entrepreneur and the fall of the tyrannies that plague society. Created by a visionary who saw this coming and much needed to empower social media users, create equality and universal income to enrich society on the whole on every level. 

 

Introducing Markethive: The Social Market Network

Markethive has been in beta for 4 years with a successful history as an inbound marketing platform for around 20 years. Markethive’s decision to convert to the blockchain was multiple reasons. 

  • To create their own asset coin as an instrument to their ecosystem for entrepreneurs. 

  • As a blockchain system to guarantee and deliver a secure system to each subscriber. 

  • To offer security to assure members they own and control their data, Markethive doesn’t. 

  • To ensure nothing like banning, shadow banning and political agendas ever control the network. Only blockchain offers this solution.

Markethive is a social network, but as a next-generation, they are not just another social network launching on the blockchain, but as a market network. This means they are secure, private and decentralized, delivering to you a social network integrated into a state of the art Inbound Marketing platform, a growing selection of commerce platforms and another growing sector of revenue generators called traffic portals. 

Markethive is also a highly competitive Market Media and Content Publisher offering Press Releases and Sponsored Articles at a negligible cost and with a reach well beyond existing social and market networks. After comparing 480 other news media sites with regards to their social reach and followers and Alexa ranking, Markethive sits at Number 8 with an Alexa ranking of 24,445 at the time of writing. This continues to drop daily as subscribers flock to join the Markethive network. 

The News Feed being nearly identical to other well-known feeds is easy to use. But unlike the others, Markethive has 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. As far as the algorithms on the platform? You determine and orchestrate your algorithms. Not Markethive.

So Markethive will establish their niche as the only social (Market) Network that has an infinity Airdrop and a system that rewards the users for using it with additional micropayments called a faucet.

FAUCET:

The Markethive platform pays you micropayments of Markethive coin, similar to faucets. After you have 3+ people subscribed into the free Markethive Network via your profile page, the faucet, micropayment system activates and from there on, all activity within the system pays you small but consistent coinage to your wallet daily. Being the entire system runs on Markethive coin, you can expect the volume demand and increased velocity of the coin to also drive coin value accordingly. This is one of the main reasons Markethive refers to their system as being a legitimate alternative to universal income, one based on ethics and integrity, not government-mandated theft and graft.

PAID TO LEARN:

Markethive is truly dedicated to your education, success, and sovereignty. This is why they have made the Inbound Marketing Platform free (Compared to Marketo that costs as much as $25k per month), they pay you up to 500 coins just for joining, 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 Markethive also pay you for taking the 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?

 

MHV On Exchanges

Notably, the Markethive Coin [MHV] was listed on its first of many public exchanges in March 2019 at 1 penny or $0.01. It is now valued at $0.25 USD at the time of writing this. This is prior to Markethive launching its own exchange in the very near future. The coin is classed as a Consumer coin used by the members of Markethive internally. 

The Consumer coin, MHV, is being utilized within the Markethive exchange by way of airdrops and the faucet system which rewards associates using the platform, so the coin is used within the commerce of the system thus creating the velocity. The Revenue is a vehicle that is used to buy the Markethive coin back in the free market so it can be redistributed into the economic vortex of the system.

The Markethive coin will not be dependent upon speculative value as is the case with other cryptocurrencies and platforms, thereby creating eternal economic velocity in the entrepreneur ecosystem within Markethive. This is a fundamental difference to the other systems currently out there today.  The Markethive system has been developed to produce revenue in the traditional sense with the added benefits of the blockchain taking it to the next level.

Summary

Bottom line, by joining Markethive you will get a Market Network Inbound Marketing platform worth $2500 per month for free and get “Airdropped” paid up to 500 Markethive coins, MHV just for joining. You will continue to receive these coin assets for the duration of your life within the hive. You will enjoy a social media interface which pays you to learn, post, in fact, all activities are rewarded, not just writing good content. You’ll have to forfeit likes for tips. I don’t know about you but I prefer a tip. If they tip, it’s assumed they must like it. And then use Markethive’s coin exchange to convert and withdraw your earnings. 

As stated by the Visionary, Co-founder and CEO of Markethive Thomas Prendergast: 

“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 of 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 Fall Of The Tech Giants – The Rise Of The Entrepreneur On Blockchain

.

The Fall Of The Tech Giants – The Rise Of The Entrepreneur On Blockchain

Free speech is constantly being redefined and controlled by the silicon valley elite, the big tech oligarchs. They’ve accumulated so much power at such a rapid rate it has become so far beyond our ability to regulate or even comprehend. Never in the history of the western world have we seen so few unelected people achieve so much power and influence in such a short period of time. This has been done without the free flow of information from the tech giants. 

Recently, we have seen US Senators, speak out, enraged at the level the issue of freedom of speech, censorship, deplatforming, privacy, selling personal data, surveillance, etc, is escalating and has become preeminent. 

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO), one of the most vocal critics of the big tech Masters of the Universe in the U.S. Senate, delivered a speech at the Hoover Institution last weekend highlighting the dangers posed by social media business models to American society. He questioned whether Silicon Valley was as valuable to America as it is often portrayed. 

Sen. Hawley’s thesis as he states is this, 

“I think the evidence is more and more strongly suggesting that there is something deeply troubling, maybe even deeply wrong with the entire social media economy. That it does not represent a source of strength for America’s tomorrow but is rather a source of peril.”  

Even  President Trump tweeted, “I am continuing to monitor the censorship of AMERICAN CITIZENS on social media platforms. This is the United States of America – and we have what’s known as FREEDOM OF SPEECH!” 

Now Chris Hughs, Co-founder of Facebook is publically suggesting Facebook needs to break up or be dismantled, stating,

“We are a nation with a tradition of reining in monopolies, no matter how well-intentioned the leaders of these companies may be. Mark’s power is unprecedented and un-American. It is time to break up Facebook.”

So how is a break up of a firm, initiated and dealt with? 

The government would need to demonstrate that the conglomerate has the monopoly of the market in the industry and that it is hurting consumers by manipulating price hikes and/or reducing product quality. In this case, a lawsuit would be filed to seek a structural break-up. 

 “The case law as it stands today would make the structural breakup of any of these companies very challenging,” an antitrust expert based in Washington said. "It is rare for the government to seek to break up an existing company, but it has been done.”

 

What about privacy issues?

U.S. lawmakers are also considering privacy legislation that would weaken companies like Facebook by reducing the amount of personal user data they control, thus reducing their value to advertisers.

Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act states information service providers like Facebook and Google are protected from expensive libel lawsuits and other forms of risk that publishers face. Those protections allowed the oligarchs to build their businesses. The staggering nefariousness of our public discourse is not accidental. It is a game, which is structured for the profit of billionaire monopolists, and which encourages addictive use. 

The result has been the creation of a socially toxic void at the heart of American democracy, from which the information consortium like Google and Facebook have sucked out all the profit, leaving their users predisposed for top-down surveillance, manipulation, and control. 

While they mull over the results in the last 20 years on the internet and web 2.0 and endeavor to come up with a solution or a way to counteract this precarious subliminal takeover, technology along with a few extraordinary visionaries have purposed a way to move on from all the drama the world has and still is caught up in.  

 

In The Nick Of Time 

The technology, being Blockchain is advancing just at the right time. It offers a truly private incorruptible means of communication that is sorely needed. It has now been integrated into a platform that transforms all others including every aspect of social media, inbound marketing, advertising, commerce, publishing, in fact, any form of entrepreneurialism you can think of, is now being born and is part of the next generation or Web 3.0. While the “powers that be” strive to bring a balance back into the world of social media platforms and network neutrality in general of the past 25 years, let’s move forward into a new era where freedom of speech and privacy is a priority. Autonomy, free enterprise, creativity, and collaboration are rewarded. 
 

The Rise Of The Entrepreneur

Thomas Prendergast, author of 7 books included bestseller The Masters of Marketing, inventor, architect, and founder of Veretekk, established in 1994 and the first inbound (automated) marketing system on the Internet, has much to say about empowering the Entrepreneur, the coming rise of the Entrepreneur and the state of the economy of the world today. So much, in fact, he put his words into action and built Markethive for all.

CEO and Founder of Markethive, Thomas Prendergast says,

“I built Markethive to be a powerful social network for entrepreneurs. It has been my vision and life’s work.  It is similar to other networks making it easy to navigate, but I integrated the most advanced Inbound Marketing technology as part of the platform. I did this to give the struggling startup entrepreneur, the little guy, and gal entrepreneur, the small business, the moderate business, the home business, the work at home Moms and Dads real advantage, an advantage that sells for up to $6000 per month elsewhere. I built this platform for you to have total access of, with free membership and affordable upgrades”. 

Thomas Prendergast CEO reveals,  

“After raising $400,000 in 2013, Markethive became a reality in mid-2016 and has already begun making success stories and changing the playing field. My decision to convert to the blockchain was multiple reasons. To create our own asset coin as an instrument to our ecosystem for entrepreneurs, as a blockchain system to guarantee and deliver a secure system to each subscriber, to offer security to assure members that they own and control their data, we don’t, and to ensure that nothing like banning, shadow banning and political agendas ever controls the network. Only blockchain offers this solution.”

Mr. Prendergast finished by saying, “I am fully committed to building the members of Markethive into huge success stories. This is my way of helping make this world a little bit brighter and helping the struggling entrepreneur to have a lot more advantages to reach their goals”.

 

A Real Option-Escape The Rat Race

We most definitely have an avenue to deflect or even bypass the dramas of what is happening with the tech giants of web 2.0. Let it play out and in the meantime be part of the next generation that is a passionate advocate of giving the power back to the people and impervious to the perils the oligarchs are now facing.

Balkanization Of Social Media – Now Crypto Adoption For The Tech Giant?

Balkanization Of Social Media – Now Crypto Adoption For The Tech Giant? 

Where’s The Freedom Of Choice? 

There are many more Social Media Platforms rising up in opposition to the tech giants, where the users hope to get a modicum of free speech and privacy. Freedom of choice is sorely lacking on the oligarch's platforms as to what we can view. Apart from the recent deplatforming of certain high profile individuals, if Facebook doesn’t like a link to an exterior site, it will block it so it cannot be accessed from the platform. This has become all too common and causing much frustration among its users. We’re talking about innocuous topics like Dolly Parton, and even if some found it offensive, shouldn’t it be the users' right to unfollow, ban, or not visit that particular medium? 

Personally, I don’t think any individual company will dethrone Facebook but it’s apparent that social media is balkanizing into a plethora of smaller platforms seemingly taking on the master hoping to get a huge chunk of the market. Many of these platforms need a hook to interest disgruntled users. Being built on Blockchain ensuring privacy, free speech, and autonomy is a very big advantage. This restores sovereignty and positions the platform on the next level to the reigning centralized social media of today. 

 

Blockchain And Crypto Education Is Required

Education about Blockchain and cryptocurrency is much needed so the individual and society as a whole can make well-informed decisions as to what platform is best for their business and humankind in general. Over the next few years, this will happen and we will see a major shift in popular platforms. Cryptocurrency aligned with a company’s blockchain creates a complete ecosystem within the platform and as the coin is traded on the free market, this is essentially good news for the unbanked of the world making it possible to realize financial and personal freedom. 

Blockchain technology provides new infrastructure to build the next innovative applications beyond cryptocurrencies. It'll drive profound, positive changes across business, communities, and society.  Simply put, there is privacy, transparency and any data or information stays the ownership of the user, not the company where it can be sold or shared for profit. Any startup company in the social media realm will need to stay one step ahead of this evolving and revolutionary technology or get left behind. 

 

To Blockchain Or Not To Blockchain?

Being on the Blockchain allows a company to create a coin or cryptocurrency, which creates an ecosystem within the platform. Many startups have failed, due to the fact there was nothing underpinning its coin or token, therefore after the hype and when the dust settles the coin plummets in value never to return. For the companies that have products and a plan on how to increase the velocity of its coin will stay ahead of the curve and are able to offer real rewards and income for its users. Then listing the coin on exchanges and the free market allows for liquidity and also further growth. This truly creates a legitimate income, not just coins or points sitting in your back office with no way to cash out.  

 

What about Social Media Startups Not On Blockchain? 

Then there are smaller social media platforms not on the Blockchain, promising free speech and even offering some sort of remuneration for inviting members to join, and if the member upgrades to a monthly subscription, residual income is possible in fiat currency for the inviter. Webtalk is one such company. As I recall when they first came on the scene, the hype around the company, especially on Facebook, was prodigious. Their membership grew and Alexa ranking at 26,000 which is amazing for a startup company in such a short time. They have since lost ground and are sitting at around 47,000. This is just one and there are many which prove to me balkanization and segregation are happening, but who will survive?  

Call me lazy, but I find regularly visiting all these different Social Media sites on a daily basis makes my head spin. Generally, these platforms are vertical and are limited. They just don’t do or offer everything I need for branding to the fullest extent. 

 

Facebook Wants In? 

There have been mixed feelings and views about Facebook.s new coin, Libra, But here is what I consider to be the low-down. Facebook wants in. They have just recently published their Whitepaper regarding the Libra Coin. Many financial conglomerates have hopped on board, including Visa, Mastercard, and Paypal paying $10 million each. These validators stand to make a lot of money with the way Facebook will conduct business. 

According to the author, futurist, systems architect, and thinker. Daniel Jeffries, The following explains how it all works; 

 “Libra is backed by a reserve of fiat money. That will work out to a beautiful ROI for the validators. Fiat money will flow in from all over the world as people change it out for Zuckbucks. The validators could hold that money, invest it, swap it and trade it. If they hold it in the traditional banking system the interest alone is enough to make their original $10 million dollars look like chump change.

In other words, the validators keep the interest and you get nothing.

Your Internet funny money won’t increase in value like many other cryptos, so you won’t get Interest and you won’t get new value. That’s because the Libra coin is designed to stay stable. It won’t swing wildly like Bitcoin and the other deflationary coins because it’s pegged to a basket of currencies, like the Yen, Dollar, Euro, and Pound, which means it inherits the inflationary monetary policy of central banks.”

Facebook’s whitepaper states it is on the Blockchain, but it is a non-blockchain Blockchain. With the research I’ve done it seems to me that this is just a glorified fiat currency with many unexplained promises that cannot be implemented in the true sense of decentralization, autonomy, and privacy. This is not a cryptocurrency. Although it claims to make a payment system easier and look after the unbanked, it’s a great way to track you even further where the companies and governments will know exactly what you’re doing. 

To the loyal Facebook users who don’t care about their privacy or are unaware of the implications, they will love this, however, for the crypto enthusiasts who dream of creating a sovereign currency or self-sovereign money, away from the monopolies and corrupt manipulations, this is a disaster or maybe, could be, even a joke? Time will reveal all. 

 

Will It Affect The Cryptocurrency Industry? 

The Consumer Coin or Utility Token and decentralized blockchains probably won’t be affected, since they don’t really compete with the Libra Coin. Libra is for individual or organizations who are scared of everything and want something that is controlled, much like Ripple.

Decentralized blockchains, which are more secure, more censorship resistant are for the people and are long-term. Conglomerates want something where they can exert control and they can do that in Libra, but not in decentralized blockchains like Iota, Etherum or Markethive.

That’s where Libra can get corporations on board, but as soon as corporations understand blockchain and how it works, it’s quite possible they will transition into more decentralized blockchains eventually.

Notably, it has been said that Facebook’s Coin will create awareness to the masses about cryptocurrency so that in turn will be good for the crypto industry in general. 

 

A Social Market Network On Blockchain Rises Up

About 4 years ago an Inbound Marketing company of 20 years, saw the vision and where things were heading. It started out on its journey to introduce the Blockchain into their system and subsequently their coin. The Markethive Coin (MHV). 

The CEO of Markethive, Thomas Prendergast, passionate about Privacy, Autonomy, and Freedom of Speech says,

“Our collaborative community is founded for, as well as built, run and used by entrepreneurs and is self-governing, independent and sovereign by design. Our continuous objective and mission are to provide a social environment, complete with an arsenal of technology, that champions the rise of the entrepreneur. What to date has become the “norm” of social platforms having full access to your private and other data to use for their benefit is over. Your voice is yours, and yours alone, and you should benefit from it.”

Markethive’s culture is not fixed. It is a decentralized, autonomous, fluid environment which includes manifestations of intellectual achievements, social habits, innovation, music, literature, technology, commerce, and the arts. Integrated with state-of-the-art blockchain, cryptocurrency, inbound marketing, and decentralized database technologies, Markethive has constructed a social market network that provides a “Universal Income” created exclusively with entrepreneurs in mind. Markethive is a free system incorporated into a transparent blockchain system. The platform is completely decentralized delivering on Markethive’s principles of privacy, transparency, and free speech. Markethive does not spy on you; shadowban you; or terminate your account, for any reason.

 

Markethive Consumer Coin Explained

The Markethive coin will not be dependent upon speculative value as is the case with other cryptocurrencies and platforms, thereby creating eternal economic velocity in the entrepreneur ecosystem within Markethive. This is a fundamental difference to the other systems currently out there today.  The Markethive system has been developed to produce revenue in the traditional sense with the added benefits of the blockchain taking it to the next level.

The Consumer coin, MHV, is being utilized within the Markethive exchange by way of airdrops and the faucet system which rewards associates using the platform, so the coin is used within the commerce of the system thus creating the velocity. The Revenue is a vehicle that is used to buy the Markethive coin back in the free market so it can be redistributed into the economic vortex of the system.

 

Continual Innovation and Endurance 

Market Networks combine the best elements from social networks (such as Facebook) with top qualities of marketplaces (akin to eBay) plus a portfolio of software tools, SaaS, (as with Adobe), a complete inbound marketing system (comparable to Marketo) an autonomous video hub (commensurate with Youtube), a content curation & blogging platform (parallel to Steemit), an entrepreneurial business hub (similar to LinkedIn), a digital media site (much the same as Cointelegraph) a messaging system (resembling Telegram) but with a secure wallet built in.

Although still in Beta, Markethive is at present, operational executing infinity airdrops and micropayments (faucet) to its members. Its Alexa ranking is something to be noted, sitting at 25,654, at the time of writing, and continues to improve daily.  Now is the time for accumulation of the coin prior to the Markethive Coin Exchange being rolled out soon. Meanwhile, build your business with incomparable reach to billions with Markethive’s cloud and broadcasting capabilities. There’s nothing like it. No hype or over-promising, just getting on with it in the Entrepreneurial way.
 

Conclusion

Markethive’s culture is one of Innovation, the DNA of our entrepreneurial ecosystem, inspiring and fueling its entrepreneurs through excellence. Although times, cultures, technology, politics, people, and economies change, the entrepreneurial spirit endures. The era representing the rise of the entrepreneur has arrived, while other organizations, inbound marketing providers, blockchain implementers, and cryptocurrencies are still frozen in time.

It’s become obvious that social media really has no choice but to become widespread with an emphasis on facilitating doing business, which means evolving into commerce-friendly Social Market Networks or risk becoming irrelevant.
