The evolution of Uptrennd: Trodl

When Uptrennd started, it was designed to be a platform that allowed people to live through their passions. By redistributing the advertising revenue to the content creators, people could earn a living off posting their art, their music, their videos, anything at all. The vision was to empower people to live the life they wanted to live, and to be able to financially thrive through their passions. In addition, the foundation would be one of freedom of speech and inclusivity.

In August 2018, really only Steemit was the other platform in the realm of decentralized social media, and it felt like an oligarchy, where the ones with money controlled the platform. I wanted to see if I could improve on this model. And we did. In addition, we did it with zero funding, no ICO, I paid everything from my own pocket. To date, I’ve personally spent over $250,000 on building Uptrennd and have not taken a single token or dollar as salary.

I’m proud to say that Uptrennd eventually became the most engaged blockchain-based social media site in the world, surpassing Steemit. It also out-performed the dozens of similar ‘competitor’ platforms that popped up as well, including Voice, which had well over $300,000,000 in funding. This was possible for us to achieve as Uptrennd had more than eighty people including team, moderators, developers and executives working together towards a common goal and vision.

In the process, people from around the world were able to earn substantial amounts of money through creating content. Some memorable posts for me were when people bought medicine and medical care for their family members, clothing for their kids, electricity for homes in developing areas, and even a couple members who bought new laptops.


Because you could easily earn a few dollars daily on Uptrennd, developing nations began to take notice and join in Uptrennd waves. For reference, over 50% of the global population lives on less than $2.50 per day, which they could easily now make on Uptrennd. This was both a blessing and a curse. People started joining from developing nations. They created thousands of low quality posts, and upvoted each other in “upvote rings”. These upvote rings made low quality posts ranked incredibly high, earning 1UP tokens, which would then be sold on the market, drastically impacting the token economy.

We assumed that there would be enough people to downvote low quality, so that it would even out the “gamification”. We were wrong. We then created levels, so that reputable content creators would have more weight on their vote, to try to mitigate this gamification. This unfortunately did not work either. We explored blocking IP’s but VPN’s could easily be used. We explored phone number verification to prove where people were domiciled and their uniqueness, but, unfortunately, no suitable and accurate solution was out there.


To make a long story short, there have been a plethora of issues that we have been unable to find an ethical and scalable solution for.

I’ll be the first to admit that the foundation of Uptrennd is unstable. We wanted to build something that could add value into people’s lives, and so we did. I paid for it from my own pocket, without raising money from anyone else. It was an experiment, and as we all know, not all experiments end up a success. Uptrennd had immense success along the way, but it fell victim to its own popularity in developing nations and the systemic exploitation that came with it.




Trodl the evolution of Uptrennd




We can agree that Uptrennd did not reach its ultimate goal, but calling it a day is not an option and would not do justice to anyone who took part in the Uptrennd ecosystem.




Keeping in mind the best interest of everyone who took part in Uptrennd we have decided to join forces with Trodl, where Uptrennd will be merging into Trodl to become the next evolution. 




1UP token holders will be able to use their tokens within the trodl ecosystem as a tipping currency. 1UP tokens can also be staked to mint Trodl Credit which is the in-app currency of the Trodl platform. Should members see a better value in holding TRO they can also swap their 1UP tokens into TRO. Full details about the conversion and staking will be disclosed at a future time by the Trodl team.




TRO bonus airdrop

In addition, Trodl will be airdropping TRO tokens to 1UP holders. This means that not only can you continue to use 1UP token in the Trodl ecosystem, you get ADDITIONAL value sent to you in TRO.
The airdrop will be as follows:

- 504 Addresses holding greater than or equal to 100,000 1UPs receive 1,000 TRO
- 1,152 Addresses holding greater than 10,000 and less than 100,000 1UPs receive 500 TRO
- 1,689 Addresses holding greater than 1,000 and less than 10,000 1UPs receive 250 TRO
- 2,426 Addresses holding less than 1,000 1UPs receive 100 TRO

In total 5,771 Addresses will qualify for the airdrop.


SUB bonus airdrop

 

To re-iterate


You do not need to swap your 1UP tokens to TRO tokens.
1UP will exist on the Trodl platform, just as it does on Uptrennd.com, where you can use it to tip content creators.
Same utility, different paltform.
In addition to the 1UP token not changing in any way, you are also able to get a bonus TRO airdrop for free.
You ALSO get a SUB airdrop.
TWO airdrops, and you get to keep your 1UP tokens.
Everyone who holds 1UP can continue to hold 1UP while also receiving the bonus TRO and SUB airdrop.

We are disappointed with this announcement and you have written the truth that not all life experiences are successful.  You've done a great job running high performance.  There are still people on this platform who still have full confidence in the upgrade, but we didn't think it would all end together.  We have been waiting for this announcement for a long time but this announcement has disappointed us.  However, we are still trying to move forward. And as for the integration of UpTrend and Trudell, we are happy with that.

If UpTrennd model did not work, why Trodl will be success? Trodl site does not look attractive to me to register. What could be any reason for Trodl be more successful.

It is the same ethereum ecosystem . TRO Bonus is great but this is a small portion of a gas fee. Staking? On Ethereum platform, maybe later , let us see if Ethereum fees ever go down.

My concern exactly is that Jeff establishment of uptrennd didn't guarantee it's existence if there were no uptrenndians

At least he should have informed us earlier and seek our consent. 

Do you realize that alot will lost the upvote simply because it's no up to 3000 for redrawal?

Sad to see Uptrennd go down this way but good to see it's evolving into something more fun. I have a few questions: 

1> I have used up all my 1up to power up, so do I consider that all of that has gone to waste? I am guessing I will lose my ranking and all the 1up tokens that have gone into it. 

2> How do I know if I will get an airdrop? Is there a way I can enter my ERC-20 wallet and it shows if i'm eligible or not or do you have a list published somewhere? 

3> Will the Uptrennd accounts be migrated over to Trodl or do we have to create new accounts?
