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…

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…

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…

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. …

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 It All Began

How the journey began is a classic tale of entrepreneurship.

Specifically, he would…

A lot of focus in the world of NFTs has gone to digital art and collectibles. Yet, the potential of NFTs is much broader: they could transform the creator economy for good.

For the first time ever, NFTs allow creators to repurpose their social content into rare NFTs.

This means they can earn from their top social content not just once, but indefinitely, as they earn royalties on every re-sale. Fans can collect these rare assets and trade them for future profit too.

This use case for NFTs hasn’t taken off yet. For the most part, NFT marketplaces are complex…

I finally did it. I’ve been cautiously watching the NFT space for a year or two, sitting on the sidelines. I put in my 50 hours of research and recently found a project to buy into.

Here’s how it went down and what to look out for.

Recap: What Are NFTs?

Non-Fungible Tokens, or NFTs, is the name of a technology that makes digital assets scarce and proves their ownership.

And that’s a big deal.

Before NFTs came about, only physical objects and artworks could be limited in supply, with verifiable ownership.

With the advent of this new tech, it’s now possible to cap…

NFTs are falling from the sky. Everywhere you look, you see the same headlines. Collectors are dishing out crazy amounts of money on digital memes and 3D animations. The mania shows no sign of slowing down, either. Recently, a rare pixelated punk avatar went on sale for…$90.5 million.

It’s hard to comprehend what’s going on here at first. But once you realize the potential of NFTs for creators and fans, you’ll never think the same. Here’s why.

What Are NFTs?

Simply put, Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) are a way to create scarcity around digital assets, and verify the ownership of these assets.

For instance…

Log onto Twitter and NFTs are everywhere. They dominate the headlines. Multi-million dollar NFT sales are now a dime a dozen, with new records set by the week. Jack Dorsey’s first tweet, sold for a whopping $2.9 million, now pales in comparison to more recent deals.

The largest NFT marketplace has recently surpassed $1 billion in sales — in a single week.

The frenzy kicked off in early 2021 but is now picking up pace again.

“I have a spare $1k lying around,” my friend said to me the other day hesitantly. “Shall I put some money into NFTs?”

Although…

A tweet sells for $2.9 million. A digital collage is auctioned for $69 million. Visa Mastercard shells out $150,000 on a jpeg “CryptoPunk” avatar.

NFTs, short for Non-Fungible Tokens, repeatedly made the headlines this past year. And the market is blowing up again, with the largest marketplace for NFTs processing north of $1 billion in sales within a week.

This might all seem confusing from the outside. I’ll break down exactly what you need to know, so you can get your head around the NFT mania.
