Fundition Crowdfunding

Various projects may be found on the site. You have the opportunity to invest in these projects using cryptocurrency. The site accepts several different coins or you may log in using Steemconnect to pay in Steem or Steem Dollars. Steemit has delegated one million Steempower to Fundition so I’m sure we will see many exciting updates in the near future.

Fundition has also mentioned the release of their Smart Token, the Heart Token. I think we will see many great causes on this new platform which we can easily support with Steem. The Steemit community is already doing so much good, but this will just add an organized platform which we can use to change the world for the better.

These are very exciting times for Steemit!

Steempress Attracts WordPress Bloggers to Steemit

Steempress

Steempress is a free WordPress plugin for WordPress bloggers. The Steempress plugin is attracting more users to Steemit because they can now post to both Steemit and their blog in one click.

Installation consists of a simple upload to the admin section of WordPress. Once you have uploaded the plugin, you will need to get your posting key from your permissions in the wallet area. Enter your ID and posting key. Adjust your settings to your desired posting schedule. You can schedule post to Steemit immediately or set a delay to post minutes or even hours after you publish your post on your blog.

WordPress has millions of users who produce content everyday. Now those users can join Steemit and add their content to Steemit as well. Once these bloggers see the benefits of earning Steem, I think they will be hooked.

3 Reasons Why Steempress May Be The Best Way to Monetize Your Blog

Steempress
WordPress Plugin

One of the greatest challenges of maintaining a blog is the constant battle for traffic. Of course, not just any traffic will do, we all want targeted traffic. We also need a way to monetize our content. We have all seen numerous examples of monetization such as affiliate offers and even Google Adsense. As internet users become more savvy, earning income using these methods has become more difficult.

For one thing, programs like Google adsense have placed so many restrictions on website owners that you may feel like you are working for Google instead of running your own site. If your site happens to relate to cryptocurrency, the limitations are even more severe.

The new WordPress plugin, Steempress may be the answer to many of these problems. The plugin is free and easy to use and solves the following problems.

1. Steempress automatically links your blog to Steemit so you will have built in traffic from the Steemit platform.

2. By sharing your content on Steemit, you may earn from both other Steemit users and your content is also eligible for a vote for Steempress. This plugin is actually supporting your writing by upvoting the content of many of the Steempress plugin bloggers.

3. Perhaps the most important reason to use Steempress is the fact that both you and your content are not limited. You can write about cryptocurrency without the fear of Google closing your account. I think this freedom is what makes Steempress and Steemit so special. You are free to express yourself without limitations and Steempress is supporting your blog while you do so.

If you are grateful for this opportunity like I am, make sure you leave a review for the plugin on WordPress. These reviews are great exposure for both Steempress and Steemit. Afterall, Steempress is supporting us, so let’s take a moment and support them.

How to Find The Latest Steem Projects

New projects are being developed using the Steem Blockchain everyday. If you are like me, you may have found some of the new Steem platforms by reading Steemit. Most of these kind of posts are on the trending page, but often the projects have been around for months before we see a post about them. This means you have missed months of potentially earning Steem on a new platform.

Steem Projects is a website that features new projects on the Steem blockchain. You will find everything from sites like Dtube and Dsound to WordPress plugins, browsers,games, and just about any other type of application for Steem.

The only drawback to this site is that some of these projects are still in the beginning stages. Some are still in beta and not really available yet. For this reason I like to also go to the delegation tool at Steembottracker. This tool allows you to enter any account on Steemit and see where they are delegating power. I enter the name “Misterdelegation” which is the Steemit delegation account that has given delegations for sites like busy, Esteem, Dlive, Dtube, Dmania and many others.

As you can see below, the delegations are numerous and quite large. When a platform is being delegated a million Steem power, I tend to think that platform will be a success and is certainly worth checking out.

Finding these new platforms is especially good if you are new to Steemit and have not gained a real following yet. Many of the new platforms like Steemhunt, Steempress, Dmania and Dtube support their content providers with votes from the platform itself. These votes are for various amounts and may happen several times a day or even several times an hour. These platform votes are a great way to get started earning Steem. I find it exciting to explore all of the new platforms of Steem. I hope you will find it fun and profitable too. These are a few to check out.

Dubai Launches Their Own Cryptocurrency : Emcash

The government of the city of Dubai has officially joined the blockchain revolution. The city has just issued their own cryptocurrency called Emcash. Dubai’s economic deputy director listed several reasons for the decision to embrace the blockchain technology with the introduction of their own digital currency.

Some of the benefits of cryptocurrency include lower cost, quicker transaction times, and the potential for worldwide acceptance.

The payment system for Emcash is called Emwallet. The wallet has been designed to handle transactions as small as a cup of coffee as well as larger transactions such as college tuition. All of the Emwallet transaction may be conducted on a Smartphone.

Dubai, which has always been a futuristic city, is expected to introduce more innovations during the year. The goal is to build a complete blockchain economy. As blockchain becomes a reality in more governments and major cities, we are likely to see unprecedented changes into how governments do business. The fact that the blockchain offers complete transparency could change government for the better.

Tokenpay Purchases German Bank

 

Tokenpay is taking the lead in the vertical integration of cryptocurrency into the everyday lives of consumers and investors.   Tokenpay  has recently  acquired a stake in a Munich based WEG Bank AG in Germany.  The initial stake is 9%, but this will increase to a much larger stake once the mandatory regulation requirements have been met by Tokenpay.

Tokenpay has talked about providing other banking services such as debit cards in the near future. As they make more progress in this arena, we will see the barriers of going from fiat to cryptocurrency disappear, which will be great for everyone who wants to be free of establishment banking.

Tokenpay has also made progress in the integration of merchant services. They recently partnered with Coinpayments.net which allows cryptocurrencies to be used on many large ecommerce sites.

Shopify is just one of the platforms that uses Coinpayments.net    The fact that Tokenpay may now be used in thousands of Shopify stores means more and more everyday customers will be able to actually use the cryptocurrency.

Offering Tokenpay as a payment method has benefits for the merchant as well. The possibility of chargebacks is practically eliminated.  The merchant fees of less than 1% are also much lower than the usual credit card fees.
