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, and you will earn ~80% of all profits generated on the platform.
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 monetize and thrive through their posts and passions like never before.
Every time a member’s post or comment is upvoted, they receive rewards. The higher a members level, the more rewards they can earn.
At level one, members earn one token per upvote. Each token on the platform is sold at a base rate of $0.05.
Upvoting is free.
During the initial growth phase of Uptrennd, the conversation will be focused on the niche of cryptocurrency.
As the community grows, (6months-1yr) topics will slowly branch out into a diverse ecosystem across all topics,
making Uptrennd the most secure and profitable 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
4. Watching promoted videos and reading promoted articles

7. Inviting new users onto the platform
8. Exchanging tokens for points
9. On-site point purchases

*If the price per token rises above $0.05 on exchanges, the price per point on the platform will increase as well, maintaining a 10% premium to incentivize purchases on exchanges for liquidity.

However, if the price on exchanges drops below $0.05, the price for purchasing points on Uptrennd will remain at $0.05. This is the floor price, points will not be sold for any lower on Uptrennd.
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 are securely kept in cold storage. The only time 1UP tokens will be moved from cold storage is when users on Uptrennd withdraw tokens from their points earned. Uptrennd anticipates releasing less than 500 million tokens before swapping to a fully blockchain integrated platform in the coming years. However, as this is a new model, that has many unpredictable variables, we decided to play it safe and generate additional tokens to account for unforeseen events.
Which exchange is Uptrennd (1UP) listed on?
