BitClout is a revolutionary new network that combines a social platform and a payment gateway. It lets you invest in anyone’s reputation and have your own coin others can buy too.

While BitClout offers huge potential for its users, starting on the platform can feel like slashing your way through a jungle. In the past weeks, I connected with BitClout experts on Zoom calls, Clubhouse rooms, and Telegram chats. Since then, I onboarded five other creators on the platform.

Here are the steps you want to follow to start out the right way and avoid common pitfalls.

Recap: What You Need To Know About BitClout

In simple terms…

If you join in the early days, you can reap the benefits

I was super skeptical about BitClout at first. I came across a video from a YouTuber I trusted, who claimed it was a straight-up scam. Luckily, I decided to give it a go and see for myself.

What I found was a revolutionary platform that could transform the creator-fan relationship in more ways than one. It creates win-win opportunities and avenues to engage followers like never before.

I went down the rabbit hole and spent days engaging with the community, hopping on Zoom calls and Clubhouse rooms, and posting a lot.

Five days in, my profile had reached a $3,000…

The platform transforms the creator-supporter relationship.

I’ve gone down down the BitClout rabbit hole for the past few days. Some say it’s the future of social media and more; some say it’s a scam. It’s exciting to watch and the growth is insane.

The platform is worth over $1 billion only a few months in.

As I did my research, I came across the story of Blockchain entrepreneur Mario Nawfal and his project, BitcloutHoldings. It took off and raised $1 million 10 minutes after launch; then another $4 million the next day. The project shot up to rank seven on the site.

Nawfal shared his key…

You don’t need to drink the Kool-Aid.

Sometimes scams are hidden in plain sight. That goes for the self-help world, too.

A few years back, my fiancée surprised me: she got us both tickets to Tony Robbins’ flagship event, Unleash The Power Within, in London.

I was ecstatic. I’d finally get to see the man I looked up to and admired so much, learn kick-ass techniques to master the mind and transform my life for good. …

This couple hit $500k in monthly revenues — 18 months in

Back in 2015, Nerdy Nuts was a small business run out of South Dakota that no one was paying attention to.

Fast forward 18 months, and it had grown into a $500k per month operation.

When I saw these numbers my jaw dropped below ground level.

How did they do it, I wondered? A combination of TikTok’s scale, product “drops” and the power of scarcity.

How the journey began is a classic tale of entrepreneurship.

The decentralized platform has taken the world by storm.

Four months ago, nobody knew about BitClout. There were many skeptics — including myself.

Now, the platform is looking to break 1 million users. It’s made it easy to withdraw money and released its code in the open for anyone to build upon.

Tons of projects are launched on BitClout and many more creators are jumping onboard. I personally onboarded eight fellow writers, and on the day I write this, this number now includes top writer Tim Denning.

Here’s why BitClout means so much for the creator economy.

Wait, What’s BitClout Again?

BitClout is a social network and currency rolled into one.

It works…

It comes down to a simple choice.

Some work on their craft day in, day out, whilst others watch from the sidelines and make nothing out of their entire lives.

This is probably the most important choice you’ll make in your life.

I don’t care who you are, you are either one of these (or a mixture of both):

  • An active creator.
  • A passive consumer.

There are so many versions of this trade-off. Producers and buyers. Actors and spectators. Players and fans.

Football exemplifies this paradox in the most striking way.

“Life does not promise you stability. It promises you a laboratory. In that laboratory you can experiment.” — James Altucher

Our society and educational systems encourage us to follow the path of least resistance. It’s a linear path with limited risk but also limited upside.

The system teaches us to avoid failure and change at all costs. Yet life is a great laboratory. It lets you experiment indefinitely.

You can go through all the potential scenarios you could ever imagine and take your pick. So why stick to one narrow path?

Here are 3 areas you can experiment with to…

A tough choice that changed everything.

The pandemic gave me a lot of thinking time. I was stuck in a corporate job with golden handcuffs and nice perks, like a nice pension and yearly company trips. For the most part, every day was dull, empty of purpose and passion. Yet these were the two things I wanted most in life.

So I pulled the plug on corporate life and decided to go solo as a content creator.

The journey is far from easy, yet here are the reasons why I don’t regret the decision for a second.

1. Time Ownership

Simply put, going solo lets you own your time…

The socially acceptable drug wreaks havoc across society and gets you nowhere in life.

“What?! That’s soooo weird!!” my colleague blurted out when I told him I didn’t drink alcohol.

He looked at me like I was a little green fellow with antennas sticking out of my head. I’m French, too, so I’m supposed to have a glass of wine with a platter of cheese at every meal. The guy couldn’t get his head around it.

Society normalized alcohol consumption to the extreme. To ingest a harmful drug on a daily basis is considered normal; not doing so makes you a weirdo.

Alcohol got me in a lot of trouble as a student. It…
