Click. Answer. Earn

 

On September 28th & 29th is a moment in our history where the Crowdclick team was formed. A group of four people came together with a skill set of business, design, backend-frontend & blockchain to participate in a unique hackathon. The hackathon, Hacktothenmoon, was sponsored by Binance X, Rockaway Ventures, TOP Network, Oasis Labs and Matic Network.  Crowdclick captured the minds of the event, and was the winning team for the Matic Network track. Our first achievement to recognize a use case for the product. 


 

So what is Crowdclick?

 

Crowdclick allows publishers to reward participants in ETH by having them go to their website, view it within a 10 to 30 second timeframe counter, followed by answering one multiple choice question on what they learned. The user then gets instantly rewarded in ETH from their actions which brings traffic, quantitative data & brand recognition to the publisher.

 

The user’s process is simple: 

 

  1. Click website link 

 

  1. Stay on for a time duration countdown

 

  1. Answer multiple choice questions

 

  1. Receive ETH as the reward!


 

Fast easy set up for the publisher:

 

  1. Place your website URL, page title & page description

 

  1. Set reward per click  

 

  1. Set time duration to stay on your site: 

 

  1. Place multiple choice question:


 

What inspired this concept? 

 

Inspiration came from the success of the dogeclick.com Telegram bot. Dogeclick has attracted a massive audience from their click to view model. And in fact show better results when tested than from traditional advertising methods in the crypto scene. This has to do with the niche usage. By getting the user to become a wallet holder, they get converted and become a crypto user participants. Therefore projects within the blockchain scene get their correct audience. 


 

What makes us stand out over Dogeclick?

 

We first will target ETH connectivity which currently isn’t available with Dogeclick. Rather than just having a telegram Bot, Crowdclick will be both a Telegram bot and a Progressive Web app simultaneously connected as one decentralized product. Lastly, instead of just bringing traffic with a countdown (dogeclick’s model) we added a crowdsourcing element to it by ending the viewing with a question. Therefore a publisher can gain traffic, potential users, and quantitative data to improve their call to actions. Getting people’s attention to your project has never been easier!

CrowdClick Team participates in Hackathon.Money 30 day Hackathon

task |
  Hello Crowdholders,    Has been a bit of time since we updated you last. During the last week of March, we saw an opportunity at hand. Hackathon.money which represents Ethereum mentors from all over the world was conducting an online 30 day hackathon. CC team acted fast and presented a new idea that in fact coincides with the CC project.    If you are unfamiliar with what a hackathon is, a hackathon is a sprint to build a first version MVP of a new idea that has never been worked on before. You then present what you accomplished after the hackathon and awards are handed out to the best teams.   Knowing that this would be a great opportunity to network with some of the brightest minds in the space, we welcomed this opportunity and came up with a new idea. We were accepted and have begun working on it. The Hackathon ends May 24th, for which we will have our first version MVP built.    The idea we are building is called CrowdLink. Encompassing what we used to build CrowdClick, this new product is in fact an easier build for us.   So what is CrowdLink? CrowdLink is a peer-to-peer referral link system (a decentralized Bitly). Here is our project Pitch Deck for you to examine.    After you take a look at the Pitch Deck, let us know what you think. Would you use it as a referral marketer or recommend it to a company to use?   You can see the tool compliments CrowdClick. We envision at the end of every task on CC the company can place this peer-to-peer referral link for the users. However, in the meantime, we will make CrowdLink a sperate project as it is a different tool.   We look forward to reading your comments! Cheers,  CC Team

Recent Improvements From Last Product Testing Task

task  
  Hello Crowdholders,    Since our last task, we heard your feedback! So here is what has been fixed and explanations to some of your comments.   The connection is not private error solved:   Some of you were getting your connection is not a private error. This had to do with the "www." prefix via our backend. This is now fixed, so putting "www." in front of crowdclick.me now works to access the site.   Metamask's warning display message:   You probably noticed the message for the smart contract signature, which is definitely not what we want displaying as you see below:  It's important to know, that it's impossible for the smart contract to know your private key. This signature allows you to only earn money into your account, not take money. Metamask's newest product deployment, they put this message. We are reaching out to them to discuss how long they attend to have this message display as this will hurt Web 3.0 Dapps.   Our Dapp is unique because the money system runs through the smart contract. Most other Dapps just want your public key to identify your ID as a user, and don't require the use of signing to a smart contract. You may notice that Dapps just have a "Connect" button, not "Sign." If Metamask fails to adjust this issue we can put together an alternative approach and use different project tools or our own built signature solutions. But first, we want to give Metamask a chance, while we continue preparing our product for test net on Matic Network's infrastructure. During the next few weeks, we will be looking for alternatives including getting advice from Matic.    30% of websites turn off their x-iframe option   One recent issue we discovered is that roughly 20% to 30% of websites use "deny" action for allowing an iframe to not display their website. And a lot of times website owners don't even realize this function is turned off. This means, if a website has denied this, the iframe won't work on CC. Luckily 70% of the global websites don't do this, but this does hurt us with some potential customers.   But we have a solution. On the backend, we will recognize if a website has denied this function and showcase them a simple tutorial on how to turn it on before continuing and paying for the task. Once they do this, our backend will recognize it and allow them to continue to launch the task.   There are some other solutions to prevent this, but current development time to solve this issue would take 3 months, so for the time being it's better to get the product live with the tutorial option and then later improve it.    Tasks now showcase images taken from the URL's metadata:  You may ask what is this about. Have you ever posted a link on FB and the link also displays a description of the URL and an image? That is the metadata. Also surprisingly 20% to 30% of websites don't have this, even though it's crucial for marketing. At times websites usually learn to add it. For URL sites that don't have this, we will be building a way to upload their own image. Here is a screenshot showcasing two tasks with the Metadata images:   Now that we fixed some issues and assured you the signature is completely safe. Feel free to sign and play with the product. There is no payment option for the publisher dashboard, so it's free to create a task for any URL of choice. So don't be shy and try creating a task! If there are errors no worries, just send feedback in the comment section. Also, if there is anything on your mind, just let us know.   There's still more work to be done with the usability part, but it's been a blast to continue building the product with you all!     We look forward to your feedback.   Cheers,  CrowdClick Team

What questions would you ask with owning a url?

task  
Hello Crowdholders,    We are happy to announce that in the second half of January we will be launching our MVP 1.0. The MVP will be the following:    Full interface for publishers and users. Publishers can create tasks assigning a reward and create a multiple-choice question. User can choose tasks, go to the website URL and answer the question.    Metamask signup to identify you as a user. This will allow you to connect to become a user on our Web 3 application    The next release MVP 2.0 will be roughly a month later. This will involve connecting to Matic's side chain on testnet where test ETH will be used. MVP 1.0 will showcase rewards as virtual. MVP 3.0 will be real ETH by moving onto Matic's mainnet.    Now for the task:   Place your self in the shoes of a publisher. If you own a URL website you are a specific candidate. If not, no worries, choose a URL you like. In the comment section, fill in these requirements.    1) Project title (name of the url project)   example: Crowdholding    2) Project description (max 100 characters)   example: Crowdholding is a reward-based feedback application   3) Project URL   example: www.crowdholding.com   4) Reward per click in $ (be honest as if you were seriously considering placing some money on CC to use)   example: $0.01    5) Place multiple choice question (can add as many answers as you like)   example: Have you ever earned crypto before without investing?                  A. Yes, I currently make a salary in crypto                            B. Some times, I have done bounties or received some from a friend or other means                C. Only recently by using CrowdClick    This will help us with assessing creativity as well as what type of questions could benefit publishers. By analyzing your answers this can help us predict but also educate. We look forward to seeing what URL's you choose and what answers you come up with.   Feel free to add any thoughts as well. Thanks!   Cheers,  CrowdClick Team

Try out our closest competition & report back

task  
  Hello Crowdholders,    This task has you try out applications that have a direct or indirect feel to CrowdClick (CC).   If you are new to CC make sure you check our past tasks here to get familiar with the project.    Let's take a look at the three applications we are most interested in.   https://dogeclick.com/  We consider Dogeclick our direct competitor. They utilize the Pay Per Click earning model, where you as a user click on URL and go to a countdown counter. You then earn crypto. There is some additional features, but you get the gist.      https://usabilityhub.com/  Usability Hub offers features that allow you as a user to give feedback through ratings of logos, surveys, mockup clicking ect.    https://www.coinbase.com/earn      Coinbase Earn is more focused on the education part of it, having users watch videos or take courses and get paid for it. This is often financed by only a select few large crypto projects.   Where CC stands out from Dogeclick is our "attention" part of it. After the timer countdown, the user needs to answer a multiple-choice question. Both Usability Hub and Coinbase Earn have an element of CC's question aspect. But while the user performs those actions, they are doing it on Usability Hub and Coinbase Earns websites. Instead, CC directs them to do those actions to the URL customer's website who is rewarding for the traffic and answers.     Now for your help:    Go ahead and signup to one or all three applications and give it a try. After, report back your input and give us feedback on what we potentially can use or improve by comparing it to them. What might you discover that CC has not thought of yet?   We look forward to your feedback!

Crowdclick Progress Report

task  
  Hello Crowdholders,    As of December 6th, 2019 we are happy to showcase you the current developments we have achieved so far. Keep in mind, this announcement is just for Crowdholders. Official promotion of landing page launch outside of CH will occur this month.    For now, we want to get your input in the preparation of our awareness stage. One aspect of the awareness stage will entail the promotion of getting future users and publishers to sign up with their email. Thus, notifying them of our launch plans and keep them in the loop.     So let's get the ball rolling:    Launched on Matic.network Testnet   We deployed our escrow smart contract on their testnet and we are beginning internal testing. This smart contract will collect publishers deposit payments and send out to users the “reward per click.”    In addition, CC is built on Web 3, thus via desktop you can connect from a one click Metamask signature.. This allows you to become a signed up user instantly and your data is protected.    Begun Building on Aeternity’s Testnet    Aeternity’s version of Metamask, Waellet, is where users will be able to install and connect via signature for earning AE. We are also putting together the escrow smart contract with the same functions as Matic.    Starfleet Accelerator ends Dec 12th and AE Ventures will select chosen startups to Invest   After the demo day where CC will pitch. We will know if we will be a chosen startup or not. Regardless of the outcome, CC has learned a lot from participating in the program. So we were happy with all the knowledge we have gained.  Anyway, wish us luck!   CC unlocks first grant round with Matic:    We completed phase one of our roadmap with Matic which has unlocked $2.5K that will be carefully used for our development. This was an important milestone for us. Stay tuned this month where we will be announcing with Matic about our partnered collaboration.     Landing Page is up Now for some exciting news. You can now check out our landing page at crowdclick.me. There are still some design improvements and modifications needed to be done, but this will be your first look.    In addition, we are currently setting up a development environment for future deployments. This allows us to test on all devices internally. Right now it’s about asking people to check their phones and computers, including what devices and browsers they are using, which is a process we need to automate in the future.     What we need from you:    Go to our crowdclick.me landing page. Make sure to signup for our updates    Take a look at our webpage both on desktop and mobile. If you see discrepancies, feel free to show an image and let us know what device and browser you are using for us to fix.    As you know, we plan to keep improving design, but for now play around with the landing page and make sure to give us your feedback or maybe some future ideas.    Thanks!

What’s New? Go through our Mockups and give feedback

task  
  Hello Crowdholders,    Some good news! After participating in Starfleet’s Genesis Week, CrowdClick was accepted into the Starfleet Accelerator’s 4-week mentorship program. You can check out the article from AE where CrowdClick is mentioned. Feel free to watch the presentation (2:01:42 of the stream), for which Ethan gave on the final day of the program.   We envision a token toggle where you as a user can select which token to earn. As you know we are working with Matic.network’s sidechain for using ETH in the system. From us participating in Starfleet, we can potentially add AE as the second listed token on the application. As you may recall from our revenue model task, by adding more tokens we can add a listing fee and even brand the website colors representing those tokens. A way to bring “purchasing power” to cryptocurrencies in the scene.     Now what we need from you:    Play around with our mockup here. Place yourself in the shoes of a user and a publisher and click the appropriate buttons to navigate. Keep in mind this is desktop only, and the UX/UI will be responsive to mobile in the future application. You can zoom in or out to adjust the screen appropriate to fit your desktop.    Questions to consider:    Was the flow simple and understandable?    Anything important you feel we are missing?   Is there anything you would like changed?    Important:  After you place your comment, copy it and paste it as a comment on our Medium article here. This gives us more exposure from the content of this task. Also, don't forget to give us claps! :)    We look forward to your feedback!   Cheers,    CrowdClick Team

What revenue streams should we incorporate?

task  
  Hello Crowdholders,    Crowdclick is in day 3 of the Starfleet accelerator. You can also read Starfleet’s most recent article where Crowdclick is featured. So far it’s been a great experience and has had us dive deeply in our business model. From that we have come up with some revenue models.    In case this is your first time hearing about Crowdclick. Make sure to watch our two videos explaining about the product. You can view them here on our Youtube channel.   So let's dive into them:    Our core revenue model:   We take a 10% cut for when a publisher deposits ETH    Why: simplistic action to receive revenue within the publisher flow How: 10% cut coded in the smart contract    Recent ideas of additional revenue stream spurred from the accelerator workshops:    Monetization with ads (Brave ads)   Why: Brave rewards can be selected off or on to see ads (convenience for user) and they earn as well from the ad viewership. How: when Brave ads become available in our region we sign up as an advertiser    Sponsored tasks (pushed to the top) for an additional fee   Why: Publisher gets more visibility  How: shows up as top task/s in the task feed   Listing fee for companies that want to add their token in the system:   Why: Token will receive “purchasing power” for publishers that want to use it and users will signup to a wallet of that blockchain to join the network How: Erc20 will be built in, but development on Crowdclick’s side would need to happen for integrating a new blockchain   So there you have it. Now questions for your consideration:    1) What do you think of the revenue stream ideas that could be put forth in the future?   2) Do you have anything to add or you disagree with?   3) Do you have any additional ideas for a revenue stream?   Thanks! We look forward to seeing your comments!   Cheers,    CrowdClick Team
