Kind Ads seeks to disrupt the traditional advertising model by addressing the main challenges that players have to contend with. It transforms the marketing model, allowing publishers, audiences, and advertisers to eliminate hurdles and reap the most benefit.

The current advertising model is seriously flawed.

Internet users have to contend with a constant stream of irrelevant ads that ruin their browsing experience. This ineffective content does little in the way of marketing and as a result, has a much lower ROI than companies anticipate when they pay for ads.

On the other hand, publishers are always looking for the best way to reach their target audiences and get immediate payment. But they face insurmountable challenges on both counts. Advertising companies also have to deal with ever-rising costs, a large portion of which ends up in the middleman’s hands.

Getting Rid of Third-Party Intermediaries

The current advertising model treats the information collected from its users as a trade secret, protecting it by all means from the access of publishers and advertisers. As a result, they hold a monopoly-influence over the market in terms of demographics. This makes it impossible for any other players to achieve efficient targeted advertising.

The Kind Ads model breaks down the current information asymmetry by creating a transparent framework in which industry participants operate. Everyone including the end-user has the opportunity to gain from the system’s incentive structure.

A Bridge Connecting All Players

The Kind Ads ecosystem proposes a comprehensive solution that allows everyone in the current ecosystem to achieve their objective without a struggle.

On the one hand, advertisers will pay little to no fees, something that traditional ad networks charge heavily for. At the same time Publishers, who have been trampled by ad networks for nearly two decades will finally the vast majority of the revenue they deserve, and without delay. Finally, internet users will get relevant and non-intrusive ads.

Benefits for Everyone Involved

User privacy is at the core of this ecosystem as it intends to develop a less intrusive model by minimizing unwanted ads. The network’s users will be able to opt out of adverts and specify the amount of communication that they find suitable according to personal preferences.

These facilities will give the ecosystem an opportunity to weed out low-quality content publishers. At the same time, the users will be in a position to keep track of what publishers do with their data. They will specify the terms of use for their data and will get incentivized to offer greater access.

Publishers on the platform will be subject to a rating algorithm based on the effectiveness of their campaigns and information from Oracles like Google Analytics. Publishers will have options to help them boost their score to increase their popularity and earning power on the platform. This system will make it easy for advertisers to identify the best publishers to work with and ensure a good ROI for their brand marketing campaigns.

At the moment, advertisers have no platform on which they can directly run their campaigns and reach target subscribers across several publishers. This ecosystem, however, allows the two parties to connect transparently, execute ethical subscriber transfers and track the effectiveness of their campaigns. And a major highlight of the platform is that it charges zero fees for advertisers.

Integration Capacity

The Kind Ads ecosystem also offers integration capability with various market apps. This allows app providers to launch their new and existing innovations on the network without compatibility issues. The platform is browser agnostic and this is a major merit that it holds over competitors.

BAT is one of its foremost competitors but compared to Kind Ads, it is rather impractical due to the browser hook, whilst Kind Ads works with all the browsers.

The Team behind the Project

The team behind the project inspires confidence in the model as it is comprised of seasoned market players with years of experience in related fields. The executive team is made up of co-founders Saulo Madeiros and Rafael Mayrink, who also cofounded NBPR International LTDA, an agency that assists large enterprises with their digital marketing campaigns. Their client base currently spends a total of more than $100 million annually on marketing.

Neil Patel is an active advisor to the company; he founded QuickSprout, KISSmetrics, and CrazyEgg, and has assisted industry bigwigs like Amazon, Viacom, and NBC to increase their revenue. Trevor Koverko brings in experience from his own blockchain company as well as his advisory role on the Ethereum network.

Kind Ads has a simple mission, which is to create a one-of-a-kind online advertising platform that reclaims power from the middleman and hands it back to the users, publishers, and advertisers. This will greatly streamline the industry and result in the greatest good for all players.

The Impact of SEC Regulation and the Crypto Bear Market on Ethereum

Ethereum

Way back in June 2017, it was beginning to look inevitable that the flippening would occur and Ethereum would take over the top spot of cryptocurrency market caps. With smart contract capabilities and an order of magnitude more potential applications than Bitcoin, everybody was keen to jump on the Ethereum bandwagon.

Of course, a lot has changed since then.

The speculation-fueled bull run that culminated at all-time highs in late 2017 for Bitcoin and January 2018 for altcoins was unsustainable. Talk of a global paradigm shift appears laughably premature in hindsight.

Today, prices have collapsed across the entire market, with Ethereum itself breaking below $100 last December after all-time highs of $1.4k just 11 months prior. Although a mini-recovery has ensued in early 2019, the situation continues to look bleak and the reputation of cryptocurrencies for the general public is still far from stellar.

Prominent blockchain expert Peter Du, the founder of Du Capital, recently explained the crux of the problem, saying:

“Cryptocurrencies, which were once the new darling and dream of investors have now taken a backseat, given the current crypto blizzard. To be sure, maintaining hundreds of billions of dollars in valuations supported by unsecured coin issuance was…

At this time last year, Bitcoin was reaching its all-time high price. However, the whole year past, its price declined by 80% since then. BTC speculators or investors don’t seem to be getting tired of its “disruptive” price falling. And a lot of people that missed out on the late 2017 and early 2018 price hike, jump in the crypto world, expecting to make quite a fortune when it hits its former levels. But the story just goes the opposite way. So is it possible to profit from BTC investment? In the following part, we will explore 3 types of profitable BTC investment.

Measure 3 Common Types of BTC Investment

  1. Invest in BTC Spot and Wait for Appreciation

Bitcoin spot trade might be the first transaction type that most investors will opt for when they just entered the cryptocurrency area. Investors can directly buy BTC with fiat currencies. The only way to earn money with BTC spot is waiting for its price rising. Unless you are a BTC believer and willing to wait for its appreciation in several years, you should turn to another type of investment.

  1. Exchange BTC to USDT and Earn the Spread

USDT is the cryptocurrency version of US dollar and also considered as a stable cryptocurrency. Generally speaking, when the BTC, as well as other cryptocurrencies, drop, USDT may perform…

UpStake, an exciting cryptocurrency project officially launched last year, is all set to take the global crypto community by storm. Unlike hundreds of crypto ventures that fail to make any impression, UpStake is dedicated to delivering a stable digital currency that will pave the way for mass adoption around the world.

London, UK – Jan 16, 2019

London-based crypto startup UpStake is well on its way to revolutionising the global cryptocurrency industry by eliminating many of the limitations that have stifled growth for years. Launched in 2018, this promising initiative is focused on ensuring mass adoption of cryptocurrency by providing a usable, stable form of digital currency to the crypto and blockchain communities across the globe.

This proposed blockchain ecosystem is built around UpStake tokens (UPS), the platform’s proprietary token. UpStake asserts that these tokens have been designed to increase in value over time, and set the stage to build great products and services which result in better user experiences.

In order to ensure continuous increase in value of UPS over time, UpStake has built a Proof-of-Burn model that burns a certain percentage of tokens sold through their exchange.  This model helps create the value that contributes to the ever-growing price point of the token. It not only enables the token price to…
