The Future of Social Media 1225

Any media is a combination of channel and information. Media uses platform to build the channel to communicate with its audience. An audience chooses the media based on a suitable platform and the information it provides. Traditional media used to control their platforms completely. With the growth of social media, their pages became one of many on the platform. Those platform changes affected income source. Here are the media evolution milestones based on those two determining factors.

The infographic demonstrates the evolution of media platform and revenue source.

Print media

It was a long age of print media dominance. There was no other way to distribute information and to connect with each other, other than through publications in newspapers or magazines. The media brand was influential, and subscribers and advertisers were its income source.

Internet media

The emergence of Internet prompted print media to create their own web pages. While the subscription-based part of their income reduced, their business models didn’t change. Banners and sponsored articles became their main source of revenue.

Social media

The struggle between the media and the platform started with the introduction of social media. Internet media use platform to attract an audience and to lure it to visit their web pages.

This does not align with platform goals.

The biggest asset of social media is user data and user-generated content. Their main source of revenue is highly targeted advertisement. While traditional internet-media also have become an element of the advertising networks, they have to share their revenue with content creators. The targeted ads generate too little revenue, that is also cut by an intermediary. Media just can’t produce high-quality content with this source of income alone.

Meanwhile, social media have demonstrated the influence of individuals.

Next generation media

Closer and more instant interactions have become the main trend developing in the new media. This leads to the growth of messenger-like media and streaming functions. With our friends, we prefer to chat in messengers. To experience more, we go to specialized platforms, which display videos, photos, streams or blog posts.

The influencers are rising and claim their share of income. Traditional social platforms manipulate feeds and content to increase their revenue while authors of good content and active communities receive no support. The new revenue model of social media has to involve direct payments. Let’s dive into the future of media and understand how it will benefit all of us.

Trends

How is social media landscape changing? Major platforms introduce a multitude of ideas and approaches with the ultimate goal – to stay influential and increase revenue.

Money has to be shared

Targeting used to be the goldmine for both advertisers and platforms. Companies just reaped customers who were ready and willing to buy. The art of targeting has become popular and now it is a very sophisticated process, while an audience is an object of interest for many companies. Within the traditional model it is becoming more difficult for brands to stand out there. They need influencers to create engaging stories for the brand audience. A creative approach will be more compelling for advertisers.

Media implements many options such as paywall, subscriptions and micro-payments. Direct payments for the specific content or to the user also become more and more popular.

The infographic shows trends in targeting. The bid competition increases and customer acquisition costs become higher. Companies are trying to target more precisely to reach potential customers. While the customers who are ready to buy attract the most attention, the top of the pipeline stays untreated. Brands can cover them by storytelling through different media, platform, and influencers and make real fans of these customers.

Outstanding content breakthrough

The business model of social platforms affects the content quality too. The requirements for content have become low, it just has to grab attention quickly. The channel has become more important for all the parties of social interactions: if you can attract the audience you can earn, regardless of the content quality.

Nowadays social media and other web sites are flooded with low-quality content. Platforms apply different approaches to handle it: moderators, AI, censorship. For example, YouTube introduces manual moderation and additional requirements for partnered channels. Huffington Post announced it will no longer work with contributors on its U.S. site.

The best way to identify quality content is to let users pay for it directly. Experts, educators, and outstanding showmen would thrive eventually.

People build trust

Don’t forget the reason why we all gather here: to communicate openly with someone we like. Social media platforms want us to stay more on their pages and to click adds. For example, Facebook applies algorithms to make people stay longer there, at the same time audience engagement decreases. Facebook has become less social, more media: we scroll feed looking for stories, entertainment and news, and don’t spend the time to comment, like or share.

The personal interactions move to other mediums, such as messengers and streams. Influencers gather people in communities and use group chats, streams, and comments. Communities motivate people to interact, rather than be merely informed.  Information, news, memes, and other content spread very fast across communities, while algorithms address long-term processes.

The new business model

While most traditional networks and media are trying to catch some new trends, the new business model arises. It is that pivotal moment when media just can’t use additional attributes to stay on the top. The new model would not complement traditional platforms, it substitutes them as they don’t change their primary source of revenue based on targeting ads.

The social network, which wins the future, has to combine new business model, new technologies and the new type of content which attracts the young audience. Young people change their preferences fast. Currently, the most popular global social network is just number four in their top and tends to become even less popular. And this list is changing continuously.

Let’s take a closer look at the new business model of media and the example that illustrates it. Monoreto is the social platform which brings together all trends and illustrates the upcoming model. This platform is based exactly on the new principle – direct payments to support excellent content creators.

The core of the platform is content, personal communications, and instant feedback. The platform allows to easily launch live broadcasts, create stories with photos and 10-second videos with overlaid text, and publish different types of content including photo and video.

Influencer: produces content and interact with users. Tells a brand’s story.

Direct donations are the basis of the new model

The donation model of Monoreto implements blockchain technology. The minimum transaction is equal to 5 cents in Monoreto tokens (or more, up to donator), which users transfer with their likes.

There are several reasons why users already donate and will continue to do so:

They want to interact with a public person and to attract attention. During live streams donations have become a very popular way to interact with a broadcaster, to ask him to say or do something. This kind of interactions with influencer become a valuable experience.

Gamification: there are a plenty of ways to turn gratitude into entertainment. In Monoreto these are quizzes, lotteries, and competitions. For example, a world-famous sportsman is able to publish a post and announce that top 3 active donors to the post will get the opportunity to meet him (for dinner, at a training club, etc.)  Millions of followers and fans crave to win the prize. The media easily and transparently conveys the procedure, and winners will gain recognition by everyone and will get their moment of glory.

They also want to be stars, so they explore the platform, interact with influencers and gradually become more active and start to donate. Donations help to stand out for users and even for brands, because accounts who “donate” likes promote their posts in the newsfeed. Brands are encouraged to tell their stories directly to the audience. By liking quality content of other users, a business account climbs upwards on Monoreto’s smart feed and gives information to potential consumers through their content. A business owner thereby gets a real return on advertising investment and his money ends up going to his favorite photographer, blogger, actor, or even another business he decides to support instead of some advertising intermediary.

Find out more at the Monoreto Telegram Channel here.

Monoreto demonstrates a new vision for the social platform model. While the amount of content increases overwhelmingly, it is very important to highlight the best of it and put it on display. The platform distributes revenue from both users and advertisers directly to the content authors. Their motivation to create and form active communities increases. The social platform of the new generation benefits all parties: users, authors, and advertisers. The changes promise to be disruptive.

MetaOne: GameFi is an untapped jewel in the making 1565

Marrtin Hoon, CEO of MetaOne shares his thoughts on how gaming industry has always been evergreen as gamers will always play games regardless of the global economic situation. In fact, more will find solace through the world of gaming. The hottest topic in town would be the evolution of GameFi, the fusion of the words “game” and “finance” which stands for monetization of the gaming experience. Making money playing online games has been around for some time, but with the emergence of GameFi since the 2020s, people are actually making a living by playing these games.

Despite all the hype, there is still a huge potential for community growth as making the switch from traditional gaming to GameFi requires effort, knowledge building, or in certain cases, cash.

Created by Gamers, MetaOne project is committed to reach out to this untapped community to shed the path towards GameFi by neutralising the transition barriers with their single interface platform.

The MetaOne platform highlights effortless onboarding with its one-stop guild management system that facilitates sign ups from all gamers and followers. Their integration with GameFi partners make BigData analysis possible with in-game insights that empower decision makers to execute secure cross-chain NFT activities via their Smart Contract protocol. The ecosystem within is looking forward to bringing tremendous benefit to all stakeholders while contributing to the GameFi space expansion.

“The market now is very turbulent but also gave us an opportunity to prove some key points. MetaOne’s key strategy has always been to convert this massive group of gamers to enter into GameFi through a credible platform that provides science and data clearly to them for making right choices. This will have material impacts to GameFi studios and ultimately the blockchain community,” said Marrtin, CEO of MetaOne, “We are so excited about communicating this vision to all geographical regions and realizing it into real executable plans where guilds, gamers, GameFi studios and users can see and feel the tangibles.”

Fundamentally, Metaone does not compete with Guilds, games, and online ecosystems but rather is a comprehensive enabler and force multiplier for the Gamefi space, integrating analytics, guild management, NFT asset management, and Game NFT activities that can be harnessed to empower these spaces plus changing how the industry operates.

Minto is Launching Autofarming For those Who Want to Earn More 2168

45645

Minto is announcing the launch of a new feature that will allow users to increase their income automatically by accruing compound interest. Minto has developed a smart contract with an automatic algorithm for converting received bitcoins into BTCMT tokens and their subsequent staking.

What is Autofarming?

As you know, there are two ways to earn on the BTCMT token: trading and staking. According to statistics, 2.15 million out of 2.5 million issued tokens, or about 86% of all tokens, are staked. Thus, most BTCMT holders choose to earn on staking.

Staking can be compared to an investment bank deposit: you invest money, and after a certain time, you get a larger amount with interest. In case of a bank, your deposit is used to issue loans to other people and companies, while in staking you trade Minto tokens for mining power (1 token = 0.01 THs) used to mine BTC. While the tokens are staked, they are used to mine BTC at real mining facilities.

Since staking rewards are paid out daily, and users who wanted to increase the capitalization of their investments have been withdrawing these funds, converting them into BTCMT and staking them again. Some users did it daily, some weekly, and some monthly.

On December 20, 2021, Minto held a listing on MDEX. Almost simultaneously with this significant event, the BKSwap service became available for BTCMT in the BitKeep wallet, which is the recommended wallet for working with Minto DApp.

As a result, the Minto team decided to automate the capitalization of token staking and created the Minto Autofarming service, which does it in an automatic mode. When employed, all daily staking income is converted into BTCMT tokens and sent back to staking, thus increasing the return on investment.

How will profitability change with Minto Autofarming?

As an example, let’s calculate how the staking yield could change if we started capitalizing tokens with Minto Autofarming in Q1 2022.

Income per 1000 BTCMT staked tokens for Q1 2022, provided the daily conversion of BTC to USD at the current exchange rate, amounted to US$307, which corresponds to an APR of 61.4%. Annual Percentage Rate (APR) shows the estimated annual return from staking with simple interest.

Revenue for Q1 2022 with simple interest: $307/1000 BTCMT, APR = 61.4%

Let’s assume that a user converts the received BTC into BTCMT daily and immediately stakes them in addition to the already staked volume. In that case, if you initially own 1000 staked BTCMT, you could accumulate additional 153 BTCMT tokens in Q1.

If daily income increased according to the compound interest formula, then after the first quarter thanks to the growing base it would amount to $486, that is, you’d receive additional $179. In this case, you should use APY to estimate annual profitability. Unlike simple interest, compound interest is calculated daily and its amount is immediately added to the balance. Every day, your account balance grows a little, as does the interest. Thus, the APY would be approximately 97%.

Thus, automatic farming is 1.5 times more profitable than conventional staking, totaling 97% vs. 61.4%, respectively. Note that these figures are valid for Q1 2022. Given the growing complexity of the BTC network and rate fluctuations, profitability may change over time (up or down). However, it is obvious that auto farming with interest capitalization will always be higher in terms of profitability than regular staking.

In addition, automatic farming saves users a lot of time: it’s easier to press a couple of buttons than to do everything manually on a daily basis.

The Minto platform offers its own computing facilities to mine BTC. Owning the company’s tokens (BTCMT) is equivalent to owning the respective mining capacity. By stacking BTCMT, the token holders receive a daily portion of bitcoins proportional to their share in computing power.

The project’s team is a collective of people from Europe spread across the whole world. Minto is founded by entrepreneurs with years of mining experience, with their headquarters located in Dubai, the UAE. Minto notes that the approach used to mine Bitcoin is eco-friendly, as its data-center is powered by a hydroelectric power plant, which complies with the UN Sustainable Development Goals in the field of green energy. Using the energy of water, the plant allows to radically lower the carbon footprint caused by mining.

If you join Minto right now, you can still take advantage of the unique opportunity to buy BTCMT tokens at the best price. Start getting the maximum profits with Autofarming. Stay tuned, new updates are coming soon.

Kanpai Pandas: Bringing luxury experiences to the NFT space 2264

Imagine an NFT project that can bring you once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Front of stage tickets to EDC Las Vegas, booth seats to your favorite football team’s games, private parties with high profile crypto personalities… etc., and access to all these events and more can be yours just by holding a cute tattoo-clad panda.

Introducing Kanpai Pandas, one of the first Omnichain NFT projects in existence. A collection of 10,000 stylistically curated hand-drawn NFTs that roam 7 chains, including Ethereum, BNB, Polygon, AVAX, Fantom, Arbitrum, and Optimism chains (and soon to be 8 ).

Kanpai means “Cheers” in Japanese and reflects the light-hearted jovial nature that the project and community represent. The Kanpai Pandas’ prime objective is to bring REAL utility to its holders by building a solid brand that revolves around amazing real-world experiences and community building.

Kanpai Pandas isn’t only an NFT collection incorporating innovative blockchain technology. Holding a Kanpai Panda gives you a membership pass into an exclusive club that offers access to high-end events such as private parties, sporting events, concerts, and other sought-after entertainment events. Kanpai Pandas is building a family of like-minded people across the globe, creating a network effect where holders can build, collaborate, and learn together in the journey to making NFT history. Kanpai Pandas believe in building a sustainable long-term foundation through providing real-world utility and on-chain innovation.

So, what’s under the hood?

Kanpai Labs, the creator of Kanpai Pandas, built and released the project on LayerZero Labs’ technology. LayerZero Labs is an Omnichain Interoperability Protocol designed for message passing across chains, providing authentic delivery. Layer Zero has been funded by FTX, Binance Labs, Spartan, DeFi Capital, and various other strategic investment groups.

Kanpai Pandas sought to distinguish themselves in the NFT space by providing an art collection that incorporated cutting-edge interoperable blockchain technology. Building on LayerZero Labs technology, Kanpai Panda’s smart contracts became the new “gold standard” of omnichain.

The creator of Kanpai Labs, @DaRealMilkBagz, crafted a team of experts to provide utility to Kanpai Panda holders. Before mint, @DaRealMilkBagz announced three exclusive confirmed events where Kanpai Pandas could attend, details of which will be further explained in future Medium posts, but have already been announced on our Twitter (@KanpaiPandas). Kanpai Labs came out swinging to provide its determination in making Kanpai Pandas a lifestyle brand that provides many perks: exclusive social events, collectibles, comic series, and on-chain game theory (details about these perks will be further outlined in future Medium posts).
