Markethive Profile Page – 
The Multi-Dimensional Communication Hub

Personal Branding For You and Your Business 

 

Profile Page – How Will It Benefit You 

Your public profile page is where you need to start branding yourself. It is a multi-dimensional Communication Hub, Social Networks Hub, Back Links Hub, Bio, and Resume, Images Hub, *Video Hub, Accolades display, your Groups, your Blog lists, and tracking statistics. Friends are all central to your profile. Your profile page is an excellent way to brand yourself and your product or service. 

Note: The *Video Hub is being upgraded. As Google+ has been discontinued we are not able to connect and upload videos from our YouTube account as we were able to previously, so Markethive is in the process of replacing the Youtube interface and will be operational in the very near future. Until then, you can still upload Youtube videos with the embed link provided by Youtube when creating a blog by clicking on the source code in edit settings. 

 

Profile Page Settings

Here is where you upload your photo and your Bio. You can also change the privacy settings. Your profile page link is also displayed here. This is where you should start. Click on the Profile Page Settings tab at the bottom of the menu and it will take you to the page displayed in the image below. 

When there, you click on “Manage” shown at the right of each topic. This will open up the edit settings. 

Biography or Resume Builder 

Your Markethive profile page also has an optional Bio link. This is where you can talk about yourself, your experience and accolades, business or anything you desire to add. This page is not limited which means you can make it as long or as short as you want and include images, links, and videos. Just like the Markethive Blog features it is delivered in both HTML as well as PDF. The Bio is optional and can be set to private invite, friends or public. You can also delete or remove your bio from your Profile Page. Your Bio is found on the menu of your profile page, situated above “Recent Activity”. 

 

Recent Activity – That Pays

Recent Activity acts as a timeline and displays the posts that you publish either in the news feed or on your recent activity page. As well as your capture page link found on the referral Program page, the Profile Page with your own link is also your portal to invite others to join and with just 3 referrals, Markethive’s micropayment system activates. That means you are paid to use the platform within Markethive by way of a faucet in Markethive Coin. As MHV is a Consumer Coin the velocity is poised to increase as Markethive enters full launch. 

 

Markethive Tracking Feature

Every aspect of Markethive tracks your incoming tracking and reports. This tracking is built into your Profile page, personal blogs, and your capture pages, also WP plugins, giving a 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. You can view this tracking feature by clicking on Statistics in the menu. 

By Date View Of Statistics

Geographical View Of Statistics

 

Social Networks

Authorize the integration of your other social network accounts and leverage them all from a single, powerful system! You maintain control of everything. With each account you add, you are opening up the features and options available to you through this system. This is an extremely powerful way to streamline and centralize your online marketing with social networking tools! 

Note: These are in the process of being updated and more networks will be added.

 

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. 

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. The newcomers are displayed in the newsfeed as soon as they join Markethive in real-time. 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. 

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 Search algorithms go, you will be able to 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.

5 Reasons Why You Should Start Blogging 5 part series – Part 5

be part of a community-melody christie

5. Want to be part be part of a community?

Blogging will help you do just that.

Many people do not get the opportunity to travel or meet new people and the internet overcomes that. Now I'm not saying to just visit any site and start a conversation.

What you want to do is find the right platform to meet people with similar interest who would appreciate your advice and cheer you on.

I read somewhere that blogging is the shy person’s stage.. and I agree. You can publish a blog post on almost any topic under the sun and I'm sure you will find people who are interested in what you have to say. In addition, everyone loves for people to comment on their posts and if your posts are helpful, useful, funny or interesting, people will!

Blogging allows you to put yourself out there, offer advice, get noticed, increase your followers and likes and gain confidence, all within the safety of your own rules and limits.

Markethive is a great place to do just that. Markethive allows you to your very own piece of internet real estate where you can share whatever interests you (and hopefully others too!), whilst at the same time gaining inspiration from others and forming friendships along the way.

Markethive also has some useful features in place where you get a notification every time you have a new subscriber or comment on any of your posts. Markethive also has built in safety features where you can easily unfriend or block a person if they're harassing you. It's not often that this happens, but it happens 🙂

So, what are you waiting for? Click here to start your free Markethive account in 1 minute flat!

Customer Support Is Alive And Well In Some Cases

Customer Support Is Alive And Well…
In Some Cases

I’m sure we’ve all had very trying personal experiences when it comes to contacting customer support on platforms such as Google, LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter, etc. You’d think the fact they are the tech giants they would have their support systems streamlined and perfected, however, the case is they don’t offer any real customer service at all. 

 

Facebook Support

Facebook, for example, has a market capitalization of around $560 Billion, yet if you have an issue you only have one fundamental option for support. That being the online Report a Problem form which can be found by clicking on the question mark button in the navigation. 

Facebook also controls Instagram, Messenger, and WhatsApp and it’s interesting to note that they are not obliged to offer any human form of customer service. Many have gone to Google to search for Facebook customer service, only to find a phone number that was a complete scam. According to WikiHow, there is no direct way to contact Facebook’s help center via phone or email. 

 

Google Support

Google has similar limitations when it comes to their support services. You cannot call or email Google’s customer support team. There is no live support for services such as Gmail or YouTube. WikiHow also warns many numbers and email addresses claiming to belong to Google are actually scams. Even Google My Business Help exhibits woeful waiting times.

 

 

LinkedIn Support

It has been documented that it’s virtually impossible to contact LinkedIn by phone or connect with a human being, even if you want to buy ad space on their platform. Although there is a phone number for LinkedIn you can call. It’s 1-650-687-3600. But that number only gives you a recorded message. The only option for talking to a human seems to be if you press 2 for media inquiries. That leads to a voicemail which says for customer service, call 1-650-687-3555. But if you call that number, you get the same options as you did calling the first number — and no human. Talk about getting the runaround! 

A LinkedIn spokesperson did confirm that “phones just aren’t a medium that LinkedIn uses”. They do however provide their members with email, a self-service help center, and a Twitter channel dedicated to customer support. 

 

Twitter Support

Much research has gone into Twitter support only to find it is a hit and miss situation. They rely heavily on their form contact which can help if your issue is a common one, but it’s not very helpful with out of the box cases where the usual solutions don’t work. 

Twitter doesn’t have a good email support network. It is very unreliable. Sometimes your message will simply disappear and you won’t hear back at all. If you do, it’s generally a form letter based on certain keywords you used in your email. This may direct you to a common solution to a problem you’re not having, or a link to the help center you’ve already visited that didn’t help you in the first place. 

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention Twitter does have a Twitter support page on Twitter itself. But they do have millions of followers so the chances of your support message being noticed are pretty slim. The bottom line is you still don’t get to interact with a human and the waiting time to get your problem resolved is anyone’s guess. 

 

GetHuman

During my research, I have encountered a non-affiliated Company, GetHuman that acts as an intermediary, if you have no luck in contacting these social media or email platforms support channels. Platforms like Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, Yahoo and Twitter all have a GetHuman page offering tips and tricks to help you get your issue resolved. GetHuman’s relationship is with the consumers, not the company. 

 

 

You can speak to a human with expert technical knowledge that may be able to help you, however, it will cost you anywhere between $20 – $47.  

 

Markethive Support 

Markethive is real and human. Thanks to the independent messaging service, Telegram, Markethive is able to offer around the clock support. Markethive is a very hands-on 24/7 support system where you are in direct contact with the CEO, Thomas Prendergast who goes by the username Bee Keeper. The CTO, Douglas Yates is also on board, with his technicians at hand, along with Markethive personnel and members. They are all there to help and answer any questions you may have in real-time. 

Any issues you may be experiencing, are corrected on the spot and as we are still in BETA with different facets of the system still being implemented, you will find all the updates right here as they are rolled out. 

There is no reason to be left in the dark or floundering because you don’t understand something. Markethive has the utmost transparency and it has been said by many members that Markethive has the best support system ever. Period!  

As Markethive is built on blockchain technology and growing at an exponential rate, a support mechanism will be implemented to handle the growth to ensure live and human interaction when it comes to solving any problems or queries you may have. 

Markethive’s mission is to not only assist in creating a universal income for all its members but deliver an all in one platform with a seamless user experience to excel in whatever you do online.

ILPs Made Easy amp Profitable With The Entrepreneur One Loyalty Program

ILPs Made Easy & Profitable With The Entrepreneur One Loyalty Program 

As Markethive moves forward in establishing and building its global market, the company has implemented a viable funding process which in turn rewards the Entrepreneur 1 Upgraded associate by way of ILP shares in the company. This is a preliminary course of action that helps Markethive develop a sizable market base as it builds viable services for members to utilize, purchase or subscribe to. 

The ILP (Incentivized Loan Program) is a better alternative to the traditional ICO (Initial Coin Offering). It’s also better than bringing in venture capitalists. Markethive belongs to the community. It’s built for the people, by the people, and of the people. Who better to get rewarded than the rank and file. 

It works like this… You lend us money for a 20-year loan note with a principal balloon payment at the end of the 20 years. The interest we pay you is based upon 20% of our revenue for those 20 years. This offer is limited to 1000 ILP (shares). These shares represent 20% of Markethive’s revenue.

Let’s take a look at LinkedIn for example. LinkedIn's monthly revenue is estimated to be around $1.5 billion USD with around 500 million subscribers. LinkedIn has 39% of its members upgraded to their loyalty programs. 39% of 500 million members is 195 million members with a LinkedIn loyalty program averaging ($1.5 billion divided by 195 million) $7.67 spent per member per month. Keep this in mind.

Markethive will reach similar conditions. Markethive is projected to reach 500 million by 2023 with a 39% loyalty program upgrade based at a proposed $29 minimum loyalty program yields a monthly revenue of $5.6 billion. 

The ILP is allocated 20% of that revenue for interest payments. That equals $1.12 billion divided by the maximum ILPs allowed, which is 1000, returns a payment per ILP per month of $1.12 million. 1/10th of that ILP (earned via the Entrepreneur One upgrade) returns a monthly payment of $120,000 per month.

These are projected assumptions based on our real internal statistics and tracking. External stats also confirm Markethive’s projections like our Alexa ranking which is exceptional considering we are still in BETA. 

Even if Markethive falls short by 90% it is still $12,000 per month per 1/10th ILP. 

Blockchain technology and cryptocurrency have made it so easy for Markethive to pass on the benefits and wealth to the community. It creates a complete ecosystem, distributed and decentralized with no need for intermediaries, unlike LinkedIn and so many other centralized organizations. 

 

  

The 15 Advantages of the Entrepreneur One Upgrade

The current Entrepreneur One Upgrade is the premium highest level you will ever have the opportunity to acquire. It contains all the leveraged advantages you need to accelerate your success in Markethive. Apart from the 1/10th ILP, you receive after a 12 month period that accumulates every year thereafter providing you stay current with your monthly subscription of $100 USD, you also qualify for the following: 

1. Associates Control Panel: Gain full data, their social networks, verified phone and text, verified email, and a contact management system that tracks data, stores dated notes, sends messaging and calendars events reminding actions on your Markethive calendar like callbacks, email, etc. with the Associates Control Panel (Part of your Friends section)
 
2. Primary Matching Airdrop Bonus: Receive a 100% matching bonus from the new registration Airdrops. This can be a significant reward for those that aggressively build “associates” the term used for the leads, Markethive provides (profile page and default capture page). Our first infinity airdrop will be 500 MHV coins, and it doesn’t take a lot of effort to offer a system as powerful and valuable as the Markethive system that also rewards new members with an immediate 500 coin reward. You can easily promote this and build 1000s of referrals that will add up to significant coins and customers.
 
3. Secondary Matching Airdrop Bonus: When your associate customer upgrades to Entrepreneur, we airdrop them 100 coins and you will also receive 100 coins as a matching bonus.
 
4. Matching ILP Loyalty Program:  You also get an equal ILP share after 12 months of continuity with the Entrepreneur program from your referral who upgrades. This is only available for the first 1000 Entrepreneur upgrades. What that means…Liken to an ICO, your monthly payment is accrued and if you stay current for 12 straight months, we contribute to you a full 10% ILP and continue to offer this 12-month reward for 10 years or your stop payment. This offer is limited to the first 1000 active upgrades.
 
5. Banner Ad Program: You also get unlimited 1st level Banner advertisement in all of our traffic portals and Internet properties. This offer is incredibly valuable. Markethive properties are already receiving significant traffic and as we grow, this traffic is included with this Entrepreneur upgrade. All subsequent banners are 50% off listed prices. 

Markethive is also in the process of building the Banner Exchange and a reseller page for all free or non-Entrepreneur 1 members to purchase banner ad slots from the active Entrepreneur 1 associate who wishes to resell their banner slots. These banner slots will only be available to purchase from current Entrepreneur 1 members. Now that’s a cool little business right there! 
Note: Once the banner reseller control panel is ready to be released, Entrepreneur One Upgrade will be closed to free members and new subscribers. 

 6. Press Release Program: Markethive will also be delivering a Press Release system as a hybrid liken to PRNewswire (traditional distribution) to  include Forbes, Yahoo! Finance, CNNMoney, MarketWatch, TheStreet.com, Bizjournals.com, Business.com, Wired, Tech Crunch, Engadget, Computerworld, CNET News, InformationWeek, R&D Magazine and more in the Tech industry.  Our Media List will be greater than 4000 media organizations, journalists, reporters, bloggers, producers, freelance writers and editors across print, online, blogs, radio and television.

 It will also publish to our growing social network followers (40,000 and growing via MH subscribers) and our growing members WordPress blogs (about 3000 and growing with MH members). When Markethive reaches 1 million members our Social Following is projected to be at (700,000 – 2 million followers total) and about 150,000 WordPress sites. 

These WordPress sites will be mini news media and vertical news media like http://aimhigh.news along with publication to Markethive’s portfolio of sites like https://Markethive.com, https://Markethive.nethttp://allaboutco.in, http://aboutbitco.in, and http://aboutco.in.

Cointelegraph, a vertical tech news media organization, which charges about $8,500 per release with an Alexa rank (2,622) social followers (1.3 million) and 16,000 subscribers justifies their price. Markethive’s press release will be priced accordingly and increase as our subscribers reach grows.  The second-biggest digital news media site to Cointelegraph is CNN with an Alexa rank (15,665) that charges $1800 and only posts to their main site front page.

The Entrepreneur One Upgrade will include one Press Release per month for life as long as your Entrepreneur One Upgrade remains active and current. This does not accumulate. Additional Press releases will be discounted.


 

7. Sponsored Article Program: Sponsored content is a piece of brand journalism that lives on a publisher’s website. It’s usually written by the publisher’s staff so the article matches the tone and voice of the rest of their content.  Sponsored Article is published to the same distribution Markethive articles are published on plus, notification of articles are sent to our social network, and 1000s of connected WordPress sites. Sponsored articles run from high-end media sites like Cointelegraph for $7500 to an average of $1200 for most other media systems in the general markets.
 
8. News Feed Boost: Entrepreneurs get one news feed boost (publish a post to entire membership) per month. This does not accrue.
 
9. Co-Op Customer Acquisition Program: Markethive strategic campaigns will designate %60 to %80 of our revenue into Marketing and Advertising campaigns.  These campaigns will point to Markethive assets like:

  • Markethive.com
  • Markethive.net
  • Aboutco.in
  • Allaboutco.in
  • Aboutbitco.in
  • Ewav.net
  • Iwav.net

Traditional Customer Co-Op programs charge $50 to $100 per customer. Cooperative marketing programs foster teamwork between a brand (Markethive) and its channel partners (Markethive Subscribers). Channel partners often don’t have large marketing departments.  Markethive is more equipped to create professional advertisements and deal with media placement. Markethive Entrepreneur Upgrade subscribers create the demand and. Co-op marketing programs take advantage of the sales channel’s local presence. This benefits both the partner and the brand.
 
10. Commerce Portals: To sell on our commerce portals, like Big Kahuna (A website builder like WIX), Beelancers (A freelancer service like Freelancers), Markethive Exchange (A full-service crypto exchange like https://idex.market/) you must be an active Entrepreneur One Upgrade to sell or trade. This eliminates processing fees and commissions like found on Freelancers, Upwork, Guru,  etc.  Buyers have no obligation other than free registration with Markethive.  This change in services where it is traditional to be constrained into the platform and pay high processing fees and commissions are eliminated with the Markethive Entrepreneur Upgrade system.
 
11. Crowdfunding Portal: If Markethive engages (likely we will) with a crowdfunding campaign, promoted to top crowdfunding systems like ICOranker, ICObench, Tokentops, Airdrops.io, and Cryptoslate.com, etc. We will be sharing the campaign traffic via all Entrepreneurs through our crowdfunding portal @ Markethive.io and giving all Entrepreneur Upgrades their own self replicated portal to help in the campaign. These portals will earn equal matching shadow shares if they bring in new ILP purchases and will also be traffic portals earning new members as well.
 
12. Texting: Ability to send a text to your Associates. Limited to one per day per associate
 
13. Upgrade Groups to Store Fronts: Storefronts have landing pages, forms, shopping carts and designed to act as a vertical eBay or Affiliate portal.
 
14. Advertise to the Calendar: Publish events to your calendar included in the main Calendar page within Markethive.
 
15. Video Advertising: A video ad portal will be included with the Entrepreneur One similar to the banner portal.


 
ILPs are now listed at $100,000 per ILP. When we first offered ILPs they were listed at $10,000, but as ILPs have been acquired and Markethive gets closer to exponential growth, the value of ILPs will continue to increase.

Markethive is making it easy to access the ILPs for our rank and file members as we believe and embrace making Markethive everyone’s company. The Markethive coin is another process of giving our members long term wealth and revenue with a true ecosystem to make use of our coin beyond valuable.

The Unfair Advantage – Markethive is doubling down in December! 

And to make it even more lucrative, any Markethive member that upgrades to Entrepreneur one during the month of December will double their ILP holdings! So that means at the end of December 2020, instead of acquiring just one 1/10th of an ILP share, you will receive an extra 1/10th. Buy one, get one free! Markethive is doubling down in December, so you can double up, providing you stay current with your E1 payment for the straight 12 months. 

This is an unprecedented offer that is very limited and designed for early adopters to help Markethive launch to the moon. Markethive started out as Veretekk over 20 years ago as the first autoresponder system, the first self-replicated system, the first mass broadcasting system and the first Inbound Marketing system.

Now with blockchain and crypto, we are able to design and establish a completely decentralized, autonomous ecosystem that allows all of the Markethive Community to acquire a sovereign state of income.

There are scores of other huge advantages to an Entrepreneur One account. Study them, stay informed and make a well informed, educated decision to get on board. We are in Beta and start-up and the advantages you get today will not last long.

Markethive’s Vision Coming To Light The March To Prominence Illustrated

Markethive’s Vision Coming To Light
The March To Prominence Illustrated

The opportunities and extraordinary value we have here at Markethive are unprecedented and as we move into an age where what the internet is offering just isn’t enough anymore. It’s become too complicated, too expensive and too competitive. Not to mention the personal data breaches and lack of privacy that has become big news and a real controversy. Blockchain technology has made it possible for Markethive to advance and offer far more for far less than any other platform or program out there today. 

Markethive’s vision is to give privacy, autonomy with every opportunity for true wealth via universal income while simplifying the process for anyone to successfully create and operate any business from the Markethive all-in-one platform. This incorporates all inbound marketing tools, including email autoresponders, a stellar blogging platform, Storefronts with eCommerce capabilities, press release, and sponsored article portals, Banner program, and banner slot exchange, a video hub with video advertising, wallet with integrated messaging app and coin exchange plus so much more. 

This puts Markethive in the category of the next generation Market Network and the first to be built on the blockchain. Collaboration and the social media aspect is an integral component and the community spirit is bringing Markethive’s vision to light. Just one of the indicators we have to prove our worth is Markethive’s Alexa Ranking. 

 

How Important Is The Alexa Ranking?

When Markethive first started tracking their Alexa rank in the Markethive News Feed it was around 80,000. That was a year ago and at that time it was evident we were on the move by looking at our Alexa rank graph. Prior to that, 4 months earlier in May 2018 when the CTO, Douglas Yates came on board and identified the need to move onto the Blockchain and have our own coin Markethive’s ranking was at 145,000. Look at us today and we are not slowing down.

These stats are from
Alexa: https://www.alexa.com/comparison/markethive.com
WorthofWeb: https://www.worthofweb.com/website-value/markethive.com/
Rank2Traffic: https://www.rank2traffic.com/markethive.com

 

An Evolving Industry

One of the prominent portals Markethive has created is digital media sites.

Notice the blue line on this graph which is CCN*, and how the curve shoots up vertically. This is a very likely indicator that the increase in traffic and ranking they received is not organic. This is usually obtained through artificial hacks that companies can and do hire to gain Alexa Ranking. According to the updated stats, CCN has now dropped to 6th place. Easy come, easy go as they say. 

 

As our Alexa ranking continues to improve, (which means more traffic) the value of our banner program increases. As of today's ranking, a daily banner ad cost on similar sites is $366 per day (CCN*).  AMBcrypto* which has an Alexa ranking of 40,350 charges $5,500 to run a banner for a full month. So what could Markethive charge? Would you agree that Markethive is in a prime position to command these prices? 

Banner advertising continues to exist and grow stronger because it works. Although you do need a system with plenty of traffic when running your banner ads and this is easily measured with Alexa. So you can see how important this information is to be aware that Markethive is in good standing and chooses to offer Banner Ads, Sponsored Articles, Press Releases for a fraction of the price of its competitors with ever-increasing organic traffic, incredible reach and exposure for the Entrepreneur 1 upgraded Associate. 

Markethive's Entrepreneur 1 Upgrade includes running a banner ad all month long and that’s along with all the other benefits. $100 per month includes the banner ad for a month. Compared to other systems that have only 10% of the traffic as Markethive, the commercial rate is $2500 per month for the same banner offer.

 

 

Markethive Banner Exchange Is Coming with Added Benefits 

Markethive is in the process of building the Banner Exchange and also a reseller page for all free or non-Entrepreneur 1 members to purchase banner ad slots from the active Entrepreneur 1 associate who wishes to resell their banner slots. These banner slots will only be available to purchase from current Entrepreneur 1 members. Now that’s a cool little business right there! 

Note: Once the banner reseller control panel is ready to be released, Entrepreneur One Upgrade will be closed to free members and new subscribers.

Markethive Is Everywhere! 

Another industry where Markethive is making its mark is in Multi-Level Marketing. It currently ranks at Number 3 on Alexa. Notably, Markethive is not an MLM company, but rather a referral company, however as Markethive is a multi-faceted platform to springboard from, we support the genuine MLM companies and the industry on the whole.

The Markethive Difference

Markethive is built on blockchain technology and is community-driven so it makes sense for the company to offer the opportunity to own a piece of this universal platform that is taking the world by storm. These are in the form of an ILP (Incentivized Loan Program)  

So instead of just charging a subscription to all members for the use of the tools as other platforms do, and then venture capitalists taking the shares and profits, Markethive offers these tools free to all members with the option to upgrade and become an early adopter with the advantage of receiving yields of the net profits of the company’s revenue. This is on top of all the other benefits provided with the upgrade.

The Unfair Advantage Offer

For the month of December 2019 only, free members have the Unfair Advantage of upgrading to Entrepreneur 1 and receiving two 1/10ths of an ILP. That doubles your dividends, providing you stay consistent and current with the monthly payments till December 2020.  

To give you an idea of just how much this is worth, the ILPs are publicly listed at $100,000 at the moment. So 2/10ths of that equals $20,000. A one-year Entrepreneur One subscription paid monthly @ $100 per month is $1200.

As the Founder and CEO Thomas Prendergast exclaimed,

“What in the world? I have lost my mind? No, it is all about the vision.”

The offer purely is a gift, as is the vision of Thomas Prendergast, who will not stop until every living soul has the chance and experience the empowerment that Markethive can bring for the long term. 

This is for everyone, and especially affordable for the little guy and gal, the rank and file. Markethive has made it so easy to be part of the next Facebook, LinkedIn, Amazon, eBay, Cointelegragh, Marketo, Hubspot combined. A fusion of all of these platforms is the next generation built on Blockchain ensuring privacy, autonomy, free speech, wealth and empowerment for all. 

As Thomas says,

“Markethive is your company, your adventure. Some of you have more equity than others, but all members are going to profit from what Markethive is doing.” 

Upgrade now and set yourself and family up for a very bright future. https://markethive.com/?upgrade

Markethive Has The Unfair Advantage For You To Double Your Prosperity

Markethive Has The Unfair Advantage For You To Double Your Prosperity

Double Your ILP Benefits! Available Now Till The End Of December This Year 

Something big is happening at Markethive! As announced by Thomas Prendergast, the CEO of Markethive in the video below, he has something very special for all Entrepreneur One Upgrades as a special thank you and appreciation for your loyalty and belief in Markethive. Your steadfast focus on the overall vision and seeing the bigger picture will not go unrewarded. 

Further to that, any new or free member who wishes to upgrade to Entrepreneur One by the end of December 2019 will also be rewarded with the same very generous offer. 

 

So, What Is The Unfair Advantage Offer? 

For all free members that upgrade to Entrepreneur One @ $100usd per month, we will double your ILP (Incentivized Loan Program) Learn More about the ILP here.  What this means is if you stay active with your monthly payment for a consecutive 12 month period, you will receive not one, but two 1/10th shares of an ILP. 

The same offer applies to our already upgraded Entrepreneur One associates. 

 

The ILP will be limited to 1000 shares which represent 20% of the net revenue of the company. If LinkedIn had offered this opportunity to its members back in the day, that would mean a cool $36,000 a month for each member holding a 1/10th of an ILP share. Currently, LinkedIn is generating $1.8 Billion a quarter in revenue and keep in mind, Markethive is poised to be as big if not bigger than LinkedIn. 

We are currently at 100,000 unique visitors a day and Markethive’s Alexa ranking puts it in the top 2, 3 or 4 of many 1000’s of systems on the internet. 

The statistics in the image below are in the crypto digital media market. Where there are over 100s of crypto media broadcasters competing for traffic and selling ad space, press releases, traffic, etc. Markethive has risen to number 4 placement in this extremely competitive market.

Markethive also ranks number 3 in the top 10 MLM companies. Even though Markethive is not an MLM company we do support the industry and have more traffic than 99% of the MLM industry!  So we are definitely on our way to be the very lucrative decentralized safe haven for all budding and seasoned entrepreneurs being the first Market Network built on the blockchain offering universal income in the form of faucets, infinity airdrops, and loyalty programs. No one else offers anything like this at this magnitude! 

What Else In It For You? 

There are so many benefits to being an E1 upgrade apart from the extra products and services you receive with Markethive’s inbound marketing platform, like unlimited autoresponders, email broadcasting, Banner Ad program and eCommerce friendly Storefronts with API driven architecture to name a few. 

 

Banner Program Exchange

Soon Markethive will be launching the Banner Program Exchange which will allow all Entrepreneur One associates to sell their share of impressions on the banner allotments which can equate to around $3000 – $4000 a month income for you, just for selling your unwanted impressions for that month. The impressions of your banner allotments are also available to free members to purchase. This alone opens up a very lucrative source of income for E1 upgrades. 

 

But Wait, There’s More 

This even gets more exciting when we deliver the Markethive Press Release System and floating video system. (more on that later) And of course the matching bonus of 500 MHV coins you receive when your referrals sign up in Markethive, which is a great way to accumulate your coins before the introduction of the wallet and Markethive Exchange

Check out this short video by Thomas Prendergast explaining the unique ILP doubler offer…

 

Conclusion

The Unfair Advantage Offer is for a limited time during the month of December 2019 for any free members who haven’t taken advantage of the Entrepreneur One upgrade as yet. To the rest of you E1s, by keeping current with your monthly payments, that also sets you up to receive an extra 1/10th of an ILP at the end of 2020. 

The chance to upgrade to the whole E1 loyalty program will cease once Markethive reaches 1000 ILPs. We are still in BETA and you are the early adopters of this next generation web 3.0 platform and like the limited number of fat cat investors/shareholders at LinkedIn and Facebook, you will get your share of the profits. The only difference is you are the community that has been given an equal, and affordable opportunity that other major tech giants have overlooked. 

Markethive is built for the people, by the people and is of the people. The entrepreneurs who see the magnanimity of Markethive are the fabric that will help Markethive reach their goals including the launch of the wallet so much faster and everyone will benefit. It is going to explode in growth and you have the advantage of riding this wave.

So now is the time to get the unfair advantage and receive double the benefits with the ILP, available till the end of this year 2019. This is an incredible offer, don’t miss out. This link will take you to the Entrepreneur 1 Upgrade page of Markethive where the video explains what you get and how to register for your piece of Markethive along with an exciting future in this blockchain age of the world’s first social market network. 

Merry Christmas to You All!!

The Evolution Of The Markethive ILP

The Evolution Of The Markethive ILP

What is an Incentivized Loan Program™(ILP™)?

An Incentivized Loan Program ™ works similarly to a traditional promissory note. It is a method of crowdfunding in which lenders and borrowers enter into loan agreements through legally binding smart contracts.  As Markethive is built on the Blockchain, these contracts cannot be altered so they provide a level of security for the creditor that they can rely on. 

ILPs work by simply providing a way for creditors, (in this case, Markethive Members), to lend money to a company or project (Markethive), after entering into an agreement. The terms of such agreements are stipulated and embedded in a smart contract, stored on a blockchain for reference. This method provides an alternative way for companies to raise funds while leveraging blockchain technology. 

 

Markethive HQ In Wyoming, USA

Although Markethive is a global company and will have mining hives and crypto exchanges worldwide, its headquarters reside in Wyoming. Notably, as published in Forbes, Wyoming is the only US state that provides a comprehensive, welcoming legal framework that enables blockchain technology, both for individuals and companies. This is good news for Markethive and its community. 

Matthew D. Kaufman of Hathaway & Kunz, LLP, The Wyoming Law Firm™ and also the Lawyer retained by Markethive states that “…Wyoming is one of the most blockchain-friendly states in the United States…”

 

What Are The Benefits Of An ILP?

One of the key benefits of ILPs is the fact they are a form of a loan. These kinds of funds are not taxed as is the case with ICO funding in some jurisdictions where it can be up to 40% as it is seen as income. Due to the crowdfunding aspect of the ILP, it is considered as a loan hence  It is completely and totally compliant to the regulatory and UCC code which means it is not a security. The Incentivized Loan Program ™ is within the legal parameters (UCC) that govern the mainstream credit market. Markethive Members who decide to take part in this program are assured that their funds are well protected and cannot dissolve without a trace as seen by some ICO’s (Initial Coin Offering Projects) in the past.

ILPs are also regulatory friendly, in that they can be compliant even with the most stringent regulatory frameworks around the world when it comes to fraud and money laundering. Participants are required to submit identification to show who they are. This solves one of the biggest issues that have seen regulators criticize ICOs severely.

Furthermore, Markethive’s platform is completely incentivized, meaning all activities by users are rewarded with Markethive Coins (MHV). This pertains to all members not just ILP holders. While Markethive continues to enhance its system, moving forward with the implementation of numerous portals and hubs, also meeting the milestones laid out in the White Paper with the funds being provided, it is simultaneously building a complete ecosystem and already generating revenue. 

 

The ILP is not based on speculation but based on performance

Markethive’s ILP means Incentivized Loan Program. Operated independently from or in tandem with crowdfunding, the ILPs comparison to the speculative nature of the ICO and IEO ends there.  To find out more about how ICOs and IEOs work Check out this article 

Simply put the ILP means you are lending Markethive money via terms within a smart contract. With attractive interest and loan repayments based on Markethive growth milestones, the ILP also offers and incentive a perk as it is, of a token. This token is based on 1 full token equals one share of about 1000 assigned shares. These shares “share” 20% of the company’s revenue. Revenue projections are based on 4 years of operations with established growth rates in membership signups, revenue upgrades, and Alexa growth. In other words, traction.

Usually, there is zero protection for investors when it comes to investing in ICOs. Startups that issue tokens in lieu of funding often don’t provide anything in return that investors can claim to be a company’s assets or equity. These tokens are generally overhyped and investments are based on speculation. The ILP should appeal to the masses as its value is tied to the performance of the company rather than a token on offer as is the case with ICOs. What this means is that creditors will always enjoy a form of return in the way of interest from the net profit generated by the company after their loan is reimbursed. 

 

Markethive Hits The Mark

It was just a matter of time and some forward-thinking for the Blockchain and crypto to be integrated into Inbound Marketing and Social Media. It’s not just for the benefit of supply chain industries or crypto traders anymore. Blockchain-based technologies can provide marketers, bloggers, commercial artists, in fact, anyone on social media or marketing platforms, with greater benefits for their products and services such as fairness and honesty, freedom, better cost control, heightened security, and privacy

Below is a video by CEO Thomas Prendergast and CTO Douglas Yates, explaining all the added benefits of the Incentivized Load Program and Entrepreneur Upgrade. 

In Markethive’s case, ILPs are an effective way to engage individuals globally, who otherwise wouldn’t have the funds to participate, given that an IPO often asks for a hefty minimum dollar value. Markethive is one of the first to offer an ILP and will be one of the first companies to raise capital by decentralized crowdfunding of debt.
 
Albeit still in Beta, Markethive is already in operation, earning revenue and has a hybrid mixture of a full suite of inbound marketing tools and digital media sites with a dynamic integrated social network, the ILP will take the company to the next level. 

Here is a summary of some of Markethive’s accomplishments to date; 

  1. Proven Executive Team that has taken the first version of Markethive (Veretek, Inc) to over $50M in revenue per year, services over 200,000 members and 90 different companies.
  2. Through Markethive’s proprietary Incentive Loan Program, we have raised over $500K.
  3. Markethive has been in BETA for 4 years and at the end of 2018 had 2,000 members, to date we are approaching 60,000 members.
  4. At the end of 2018, Markethive was generating about $1,800 per month in revenue, to date we are approaching $12K in monthly recurring revenue.  We also have added 4 more revenue streams. We are increasing our revenue at a rate of approx. 30%-40% each month.
  5. Per Clouldflare.com and Oneall.com, Markethive has members in 187 countries. 
  6. Per Worthofweb.com Markethive.com domain’s raw worth is $2,360,800M up from 950K at the end of 2018.
  7. Per CoinRanking.com Markethive’s consumer coin has a market cap of $18.7B.
  8. Per Alexa rating, we have risen to 4th in the category of Blockchain Media sites with an Alexa rating of 12,379, up from 50,000 at the end of 2018.
  9. According to Cloudflare statistics, Markethive.com is receiving over 95,000 unique visitors a day and over 1M page hits each day.
  10. A total social reach of over 40K people and growing every day, add that to our community reach of over 60K+, then by the end of the year we project a reach of over 333 Million social media/internet users

Markethive has produced 2 coins. 

Markethive Coin (MHV) is a consumer coin. Used internally, it will create universal income for the user and a complete ecosystem for the entrepreneur, including the eCommerce portals to be implemented in due course. Plus the added benefit of liquidity once the  Markethive Exchange and e-wallet are implemented. 

Hive Foundation Shares (HFS) which is the FLAT, (Future Loan Access Tokens). HFS gives creditors the right to transfer loans to others, using Markethive’s Internal Exchange which requires members of that exchange to have a verified (KYC) Markethive account and Markethive wallet. (Currently in development)

The Markethive team says, “ILP provides a fast track alternative so more time and energy can be spent on business development. Last, but not least, because ILP is in the form of loans, it is considered to be debt, and not subject to tax.”

How does it work? 

The company first ask the creditors to register their identification, address and other information.

Then, they will digitally sign the loan agreement and send the nominated funds to Markethive’s registered account. Once the payment is received, the contract is made.

That means Markethive’s ILP holders will receive their prorated portion of 20 percent of Markethive’s net profit.  Initially, paying back the principle then payments continue for the duration of the agreement as interest payments. After the loan contract is made, Markethive will issue the Hive Foundation Shares.

 

In summary, The Incentivized Loan Program's key benefits are…

  • It's a debt instrument and not subject to tax and it compliant with the USA UCC code governing debt instruments. 
  • The company doesn't need to create tokens that are speculative and actually have no use.
  • It is open to individuals around the world as loans are allowed almost everywhere.
  • After the principal is paid you earn interest and will share in the success of the company. 
  • Very Easy to Participate – There are two options
  1. Sign up at Markethive.com for a FREE membership and then upgrade to the Entrepreneur level (available only to the first 1000 upgrades).  After every continuous year, you will receive a 1/10 of a full ILP and after 10 years you can accommodate a full ILP token.
  2. Or Purchase an ILP outright (priorities are given to ILP purchasers) Contact Douglas @ cfo@markethive.net

Secure your future with the next generation Social Market Network offering you the perfect system for real long-term success, financial freedom, and a place you can call home. This is truly the complete ecosystem for entrepreneurs.

The Reality Of Multi-Level Marketing

The Reality Of Multi-Level Marketing

Over the past few days, I’ve been doing some intensive research about Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) Companies and the people they seem to attract. During my research, I have found there are opposing views to the extreme on the subject which makes it a difficult topic to discuss. There are some who are passionate about it with well-known celebrities advocating, to the point of being an ambassador for a company. [If they are in it, it must be good!]  And on the other hand, if you admit you are in an MLM company people will run a mile and avoid you like the plague. 

There are some reputable MLM companies out there because they focus on the product more than the pyramid structure of recruiting. However, the problem with many multi-level marketing companies and the reason the industry has such a bad reputation is that they make it intentionally complicated, vague on important details and the overhype which gives the recruitee unrealistic expectations. 

It’s also difficult to establish whether or not the company is built around the consumption of the actual product or the premise that you need to bring in more people under you to succeed. If you scan the internet you will find dozens of negative articles such as “What’s Wrong With Multi-Level Marketing?” and very few articles in favor of them. 

 

Reputable Studies On Multi-Level Marketing

About one in thirteen people of 18 years plus have participated in at least one MLM company according to the AARP Foundation. But do these people really make money or even a modest living at multi-level marketing? What is the actual likelihood of success? 

The AARP Foundation did a study that explores the mindset, expectations, and experiences of MLM associates. The results can be found in this report titled “Multi-level Marketing: The Research, Risks, and Rewards.”  The study points out that while it’s possible to achieve some success with an MLM organization, it’s not common. 

The study found that 44% of associates dropped out after less than one year. Another study conducted by Jon M. Taylor, Ph.D., founder of the Consumer Awareness Insitute goes into a little more depth on dropout rates: 

  • A minimum of 50% of MLM representatives drops out in the first year.
  • A minimum of 90% of representatives leaves within five years.
  • By year 10, only those at or near the top have not dropped out—which means at least 95% of representatives have dropped out.

Notably, around two-thirds of the associates in the AARP Foundation’s study said they would not join the same MLM company after knowing what they know now. 

 

How likely are you to be able to make money in MLM? 

The fees and money for products that need to be invested or outlaid by associates to be able to participate and/or keep their status within an MLM company have run into the thousands. Notably, a very high percentage of people have never recouped their expenses and in reality, only a tiny percentage of representatives actually succeed in making the high earnings promoted by some companies. Some don’t make money at all and some, unfortunately, lose money. 

The AARP Foundation study showed that only around 25% made a profit with MLM, 27% broke even and about half of them lost money. Of the 25% that made a profit: 

  • 14% made less than $5,000
  • 6% made between $5,000 and $9,999
  • 3% made between $10,000 and $24,999
  • 3% made $25,000 or more
  • .05% made $100,000 or more

Interestingly, the ARRP Foundation found that 52% of MLM associates said the company’s representation of achieving financial success was “not too accurate” or “not at all accurate”. Taylor produced a staggering conclusion from his research saying that 

“On average, one in 545 is likely to have profited after subtracting expenses, and 997 out of 1,000 individuals involved with an MLM lose money (not including time invested)”

 

In this video, John Oliver, the comedic host of Last Week Tonight, gives a passionate and satirical presentation about certain MLM companies in light of the events regarding Herbalife and the Hispanic community that was burned by Herbalife as portrayed in the movie documentary  “Betting On Zero”. 

 

Who Do You Trust?

There are some well-known MLM companies that are product-centric. The recruiting component is secondary. The company gets most of its revenue from products or services, not new customers. This means they have compensation plans designed around the product sales at which you are more likely to generate a substantial income on the products alone and not be reliant on the number of recruits or their sales. Additionally, they have a large customer base that are not distributors of the company. 

Before joining an MLM company, it’s crucial to research the company and products thoroughly. Be sure the products are something you believe in and trust. It’s hard to promote something you don’t believe in. I would go so far as to say love and use the product and above all love what you do. It’s a well known saying, “If you love what you do, the money will follow.” Ok, well… It sure beats doing something you don’t like. 

When a company or its representatives display grandiose tactics and hype over the premise of making big money especially with very little effort, it’s a red flag. It seems to me that since the dawn of the internet there are many more MLM’s and money-making programs promising this, which has bred a culture of laziness and desperate people expecting big things in return for little or no work. 

 

Referral Companies – Loyalty Programs – A Win/Win 

Referral companies seem to have the secret sauce when it comes to market growth and sustainability, and it’s not at the risk of pyramidical saturation or loss of financial outlay. Companies that have referral programs use cost-effective marketing strategies by rewarding existing customers or associates to spread the word about the company and its products. By the same token, new customers are rewarded for joining.  This can be in the form of cash, discounts, redeemable points, subscriptions and now in the new era of blockchain, we have cryptocurrency, airdrops, and faucets.

 

Successful Companies That Have Championed Referral Programs

PayPal They literally gave away free money. Referrals helped Paypal achieve up to 10% daily growth increasing their user base to over 100 million members. The company dropped the refer-a-friend bonus upon reaching a critical mass of early adopters but kept the merchant bonus until they reached their target numbers. 

 

Dropbox Modelled after PayPal, Dropbox’s referral program, they added a double-sided referral program, where both referrer and friend were rewarded. They permanently increased signups by 60%. The referral rewards were extra storage space which was key to usage and enjoyment of their product.

 

AirbnbIn 2011, 3 years after its initial launch, Airbnb first tested the new referral program in a hugely successful closed-beta program of 2,161 existing members, which brought in 2,107 new members, nearly a 1:1 ratio. It has since seen remarkable growth especially with loyal advocates like the very enthusiastic single user in China led to thousands of signups and hundreds of bookings in a single month. 

 

UberUber has run multiple referral programs at once, for both passengers and for drivers – and set the benchmark for future ride-hailing apps. Uber has covered more than 50 countries in 3 years. With a referrer’s Invite link and a clear call to action to refer friends makes it easy and simple. The bar at the bottom of the image is a clever piece of gamification. Let’s face it, people love games and who doesn’t want to fill up progress bars? 

 

Evernote Their referral program relies on a point system and has a dual-sided referral incentive program that either gives people additional space or premium membership. Notably, the clarity of what constitutes a referral is clearly defined. Once the referral has signed up, they must also sign in. Their Cloud Notebook has been extremely popular, acquiring their first million users in 14 months and hitting 11 million users two years later.  

 

MarkethiveBeing the first Social Market Network on the blockchain with its own crypto coin (MHV) and exchange is leading the way with cryptocurrency referral incentives and loyalty programs. MHV is an open-source digital value transaction technology that can be made accessible to cryptocurrency exchanges as well as used for transactions between Markethive’s Market Network participants, and to pay for products and services, etc.

Currently, still in beta, the active user base has gone from 4,000 to 56,000 in a few short months entirely by word of mouth and growing exponentially. In less than a year Markethive has grown from obscurity to rank in the top 5 of companies in the blockchain media companies with an Alexa ranking of 11,500 as of Nov 2019. Markethive rewards active members with airdrops and faucet like payments, and members that upgrade with ILP holding options. New referrals receive 500 MHV coins upon joining. This is an evergreen referral program with loyalty rewards, gamification, and competitions built into the ecosystem making it a fun, lucrative and rewarding platform for all subscribers. 

 

Conclusion 

Once upon a time, before the internet, the only avenue available was MLM opportunities for the average person with no experience to give it their best shot and try to make an income or at least supplement their wage. 

For the last 25 years, we’ve had the internet where so many more opportunities popped up, good and bad. The trick is to identify and be wary of scams with buzz words like “get rich quick”, “fire your boss” and “no effort required”. There are many unscrupulous individuals and companies sadly, that prey on desperate, naive people who dream of becoming successful online and securing financial freedom. 

Coming to the fore we now have blockchain technology which allows a more level playing field providing transparency, privacy, autonomy and equality with more opportunity to reach self-sovereignty. Coupled with honorable companies and noble individuals at the helm who integrate, utilize and pass on the benefits of this decentralized technology is a real win/win in my book. I believe it’s definitely getting harder for the scam artists out there. The end is nigh, people are waking up.  

Are you one of the 97% who lost money in MLM? Can you see the magnanimity of the blockchain era and how it can affect us all very positively?

JOHN MCAFEE – A Few Pearls Of Wisdom

JOHN MCAFEE – A Few Pearls Of Wisdom

John McAfee, now 74 years old, a libertarian, a computer whizz and cybersecurity guru who became a household name with the McAfee Antivirus software, now living a bohemian and somewhat quiet lifestyle somewhere in this world.  He communicates from a faraday cage, where no signals from a device can get out of the foil-lined cage, therefore making him and his message to his followers and anyone else who’ll listen, untraceable. 

The last six months of John McAfee’s life have been interesting, to say the least. John McAfee, accompanied by his wife, Janice, was chased out of the Bahamas for ruffling feathers after he accused the Bahamian anti-corruption czar, Paul Rolle, of corruption. McAfee pointed out the reason for going into exile in the Bahamas is that he couldn’t be easily extradited back to the US from there because the Bahamas does not have an income tax. His argument was that “tax evasion is not a crime in the Bahamas”. Adding to that he has mentioned the possibility of a US strategy that is to “unlawfully collect” him 

Subsequently, they arrived in Cuba where the authorities of Cuba notified McAfee that the US government asked them for the fugitive’s return to the United States. Instead, the Cuban Government stipulated they would prefer if McAfee and his wife left Cuba and gave them 72 hours to leave their country. 

From there they spent a few days at sea, then ventured into the Dominican Republic where they were surrounded by soldiers as soon as they reached the Port. They did manage to elude them once more and now live in an undisclosed location.  According to McAfee, these events were caused by the CIA’s attempt to get him back to the states and answer to charges primarily for tax evasion. McAfee considers the CIA to be “the great monster at the heart of America”. He has also previously warned that there’s an attempt by the U.S. to “silence” him. 

 

The McAfee Dex

In spite of all this, John McAfee still manages to get his decentralized exchange up-and-running. The McAfeeDex, a completely distributed exchange means it cannot be totally shut down. It is still in beta and it already has over 30 different portals, different domains and services globally make it impossible to shut down. 

By the end of the year, there will be over 100, as more and more tokens join the exchange, the latest being Tron and Binance and EOS will follow.  McAfee’s motivation to create the DEX was to challenge the SEC. He wanted to build something the government could not interfere with.  His objective is to solve the cross-chain issue and by the Q2 of next year it will be able to execute true cross-chain transactions allowing interoperability.

Cross-chain protocols, or so-called atomic swaps, allow you to exchange one cryptocurrency for another, even between two different blockchains, without the help from a third party. It's basically a variation of smart contract technology and hash time-locked contracts.

 

McAfee Movie – King Of The Jungle

He continues to communicate his out-of-the-box thoughts, philosophies, knowledge, and beliefs to the world and seen as an authoritative figure in the Blockchain and crypto realm, along with his avid stance on privacy and freedom. Being an interesting and controversial character, Hollywood is making a movie based on a 3-week segment of his life while in Belize back in 2011

The movie centers on Wired magazine investigator Ari Furman, who accepts what he thinks is a run-of-the-mill assignment to interview McAfee. Once Furman arrives in Belize, however, he finds himself pulled into McAfee’s escalating paranoia as he becomes a person of interest in the murder of a neighbor. 

Michael Keaton was set to play the part of McAfee however, There are rumors that he has since exited, which is a shame. I thought he would’ve made a sensational John McAfee. Zac Efron will be playing the role of the journalist, Ari Furman which was originally assigned to Seth Rogan. It will be interesting to see who will play McAfee. The project has been in the works for several years now and the producers are hoping to finally start shooting in early 2020. 

 

A Few Pearls Of Wisdom From John McAfee

If you have been following McAfee you would know he has taken a great interest and love for what cryptocurrency and the blockchain can do on a global scale, not only for the first world but the third world countries. No matter where we are from we are all suppressed to some extent and this technology is able to free us from the tyranny and instability we all face.
 
In a recent interview by Crypto Finder, McAfee explained,

“The blockchain and cryptocurrency offer us, as citizens of the world an opportunity to free ourselves from the financial cage in which we are dependant upon the fiat currency which is controlled by the centralized entities which in turn controls us. Crypto gives us a currency free from control and observation of the governments.”   

At the heart of all this McAfee passionately maintains that privacy is the central element of freedom. We can’t be free without privacy. As he puts it, 

"You could not survive, without your right to choose your level of privacy, constantly, every hour, of every day of your life"

McAfee also says governments are not afraid of Bitcoin, simply because quite likely it won’t be the standard-bearer in terms of use. It’s slow, clunky, it has no privacy or smart contract features. It’s basically old technology now, however, people love bitcoin and it will always be our standard of value for investments, at which altcoins are aligned. 

According to McAfee, the cryptos that governments are afraid of are cryptos that we use like Monero, Ethereum and other privacy coins that have an impenetrable technology and a definite use case which can be utilized by the individual country or community thereby creating an ecosystem in which all will benefit. 

The general consensus at present regarding cryptocurrency is to amass and hodl in the hope it rises in price or capitalize on the volatile nature of crypto by buying and selling or trading to make a profit. There seems to be the idea that crypto is intended to make one rich. And although it has happened in the past to the few who invested early, the technology or currency was not originally meant for that to be the case. 

Crypto is meant to be used, in other words, transacted with. Cryptocurrency is predominantly thought of as an investment, however, all that does is create volatility and fluctuation. It is arguably presumed by everyone who enters the crypto world that is it only for exchange.

Interestingly, John McAfee does not invest in cryptocurrency. He continually implores people to use crypto for its intended use. Not just trading in the hope to get rich. 

When asked what does he think is dangerous to the crypto world, McAfee says, 

“What’s dangerous is the users who insanely invest in crypto and not using it. It’s madness! If we don’t use it, the hope of getting rich with it is shattered. Everyone thinks crypto is for exchanging. It’s for transacting, buying things with crypto.” 

McAfee’s views on the Libra coin are not surprising. In fact, any central bank digital currency that is being proposed McAfee says “is the holy grail for totalitarian governments”. Facebook is saying they want to empower the users of their coin. The fact is, Libra doesn’t empower anyone but facebook. On the contrary, everything you do now will be monitored financially. Not just what you’re buying or who your friends are and who you are talking to. 

As McAfee points out,

“Libra is an abomination. Libra is not the spirit of cryptocurrency. It’s just Facebook leaching more and more into your being.” 

 

 

John McAfee speaks at the Barcelona Blockchain Week conference and sheds light and opinions on  Blockchain, crypto and Facebook’s controversial Libra coin. 

“Blockchain is the first world-changing technology in the past 100 years that didn’t come from the bowels of a secret government development or CIA, Samsung, Apple or IBM. It came from ordinary programmers who are ordinary people and now been with us for 10 years when it was brought to light by Bitcoin.”

Prior to that, it was first conceptualized in 1991 by two engineers when they wrote many papers with the idea of creating a timestamped digital document. Essentially they set out to create an immutable ledger. Many consider this to be the first incarnation of blockchain.

Starting out and making his mark with the McAfee Antivirus software, being a mathematician and engineer in his own right, John McAfee is certainly a person people refer to with his wealth of knowledge and experiences. His forthright manner and disruptive views are all about waking people up to what’s happening in the world. His passionate nature and constant use of expletives are what make McAfee who he is as many have come to admire the vigilante. Love him or hate him he makes some good points in this video… 

The Take-Away

It doesn’t matter how many cryptocurrencies are out there. All that matters is the fact they are usable and functional. That they have a use case and have the velocity within an ecosystem. We need to understand the power of cryptocurrency not built by governments, but built by the people and offers us for the first time in human history, the real chance for absolute financial freedom, where your crypto wallet is your bank. 

While listening to this video and John McAfee’s pearls of wisdom I immediately thought of what Markethive is doing for and with its community that is very much aligned with McAfee’s reasonings. It is building an ecosystem offering privacy and autonomy with the opportunity for everyone to realize their potential, become self-sufficient with the freedom and infinite potential of financial sovereignty. 

There is a great purpose and a complete ecosystem of products and services built around the Markethive consumer coin. The Markethive Coin is not dependent upon speculative value as is the case with many other cryptocurrencies and platforms and is a fundamental difference to the other systems out there. 

 

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 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. 

Coupled with numerous domains, a powerful social matrix, and the eventuality of quantum computer technology and mining hives, Markethive will also be impervious to central authorities and will be the ultimate ecosystem that the people need and are looking for whether they realize it or not. It champions all aspects of decentralization, privacy, autonomy, freedom of speech and self-sovereignty with the community’s best interests at heart. 

The future of the global economy will be all about cryptocurrency. It cannot be stopped and it’s not going away. With interoperability becoming more viable with evolving technology at a speedy pace, the Markethive economy with its coin (MHV) will be a resourceful entity in the blockchain and crypto world. Once all operations are integrated along with the steps to ensure long-term sustainability as the community grows, the MHV coin will inevitably increase in value securing your success and prosperity within Markethive and beyond. 

The world needs advocates with soul and heart like John McAfee. Granted, his methods are extreme and unorthodox, but he’s doing his absolute best to “wake people up”

God Bless John McAfee and God Bless Markethive.
