Welcome To Uptrennd!
Uptrennd - A New-Era Social Media Platform,
created with the sole purpose of empowering the people.
Uptrennd stands on four foundational pillars: Freedom of Speech, Data Security, Equality of Opportunity and Distribution of Wealth.
On Uptrennd, your private information will never permisionlessly be sold.
Uptrennd is a movement to shift the wealth and power from the corporations, back to the people.
Bloggers, photographers, videographers, musicians, podcasters, selfie-aficionados, and all other content creators are now able
to earn rewards, thriving through their posts and passions like never before.
Every time a member’s post or comment is upvoted, they receive rewards.
At level one, members earn one token per upvote.
The higher a members level, the more rewards they can earn.
Upvoting is free.
During the initial growth phase of Uptrennd, the conversation will be focused on the niche of cryptocurrency.
As the community grows, topics will slowly branch out into a diverse ecosystem across all topics,
making Uptrennd the most compelling platform to share any content online.
How do I earn points?
Points are earned by:
1. Receiving an upvote on your post or comment
2. The Sharing Economy - Reposts earn you 50% of the points
3. Receiving donations from other users

5. Daily login bonuses
6. Monthly and Weekly contests
7. Inviting new users onto the platform

Nope, upvoting is free!

Does Uptrennd censor content?
Uptrennd is platform that fully supports free speech and media expression. We will never delete posts/comments becasue of opinion or bias.
That being said, we cannot support illegal activities or threats of violence on our website. Additionally, as Uptrennd is a crypto-only platform at this point in time, non-crypto content and blatant spam is subject to being removed from the website.
Does Uptrennd sell user data and private information like Facebook does?
Uptrennd does not sell user data.
Will Uptrennd ever branch off from strictly a cryptocurrency platform?
Yes, the diversification of topics will be slow and methodical, ensuring that the conversation stays rich and full without spreading too thin.
Is Uptrennd blockchain-based or a DApp?
No, Uptrennd is currently a standard Web 2.0 website. We plan to have Uptrennd as a fully decentralized platform within 3 years.
Did Uptrennd do an ICO?
No, Uptrennd is a fully self-funded project. No outside investments were accepted for any stage of the build.
Was there a premine of 1UP tokens?
Yes. As this was a grassroots, self-funded platform, Uptrennd had to get creative with ways to reduce startup costs. Rather than spending millions upfront on a full blockchain integrated platform, the website was built as a web 2.0 platform. This meant it was not possible to have a token-mining model at launch. Uptrennd premined 10,000,000,000 tokens which were securely kept in cold storage. Since then, 90% of tokens have been burned, and Uptrennd has transitioned to a deflationary currency.
The only two times 1UP tokens will be moved from cold storage is:
a) When users on Uptrennd withdraw tokens from their points earned.
b) When Uptrennd burns tokens from cold storage based on actions performed on-platform.
