My recent discovery of bitcoin has made it clearer than ever that the crypto-market thrives on price volatility, which is subject to manipulation. Bitcoin market worth about 300 billion USD is daily and constantly explored by a vast population of traders and hodlers globally. Crypto price manipulation has become more popular speculation within the crypto-ecosystem. Social media has played a very crucial role in determining the bitcoin price trend through news/announcements, believes/assumptions, low liquidity, market predictions, financial inequality, etc., which have controlled the buying and selling decisions of traders/hodlers.However, bitcoin price manipulation has been ruled my whales, with the crypto-ecosystem pro-active at watching out for these huge transactions held by a single person/firm and published through a twitter account; @whale_alert. The idea of bitcoin price spikes has been associated with whales with some speculation still held to the historical massive jump in bitcoin price from 1,000 USD to 19,000 USD within one year (2017).To scrap the misconception, bitcoin whales an individual or company (mostly exchanges) hodling a high-net-worth of bitcoin, who transfers huge amounts of bitcoin from one wallet to another. From this simple description, it is clear that these whales are capable of causing both increases and drops in market prices.About 24 hours ago, series of whales in serious huge individual(s)/exchange moving in nearly 10 billion USD worth BTC in 22 transactions (each transaction of 55,337 BTC; worth over 400 million USD), all done within 15 minutes from various different wallets.Interestingly, these whales rather than spiking the bitcoin price as speculated by most people in the crypto-ecosystem experienced only a further plunge in bitcoin price by -0.68%.However, to remove the idea of whale price spike idea; it is clearer that bitcoin whales are capable of manipulating bitcoin prices (causing either drop, increase or maintain its steady price trend). For example; A vast Hodler, buy up the dip and putting up 80,000 BTC at 15,000 USD sell, then he buys some of his own sell through another account. Buddy, this is a typical market manipulation to set for a massive peak in my opinion.** It is important to note what can happen if the US government or the various inactive early bitcoin adoptor/HODLER decides to sell out all they own at massive high prices.What do you think will happen?
Today, in the history of UPTRENND is a very unique one. Reason being that the first stage of the growth and expansion officially begins. - the XIO incubator voting.You may be wondering what the XIO incubator means. I was also curious at first when I heard the word incubator as it didn't seem like a word the block chain tech should use.Just like the definition of incubator as it relates to infants so is it with the block chain technology.The Block chain incubator helps start ups such as the UPTRENND (Yes, we are a startup: 11 months and still counting). You must have heard that Uptrennd reached 50,000 users within a year without any 'paid' ad. Can you picture how far we would reach if there was a paid ad even if it were for 3 months? The incubator could be of great help in thus area.Incubator programs also help new startups by providing them with management training and in some cases the capital needed to bring their product to market. In other words, business incubators can be described as a catalyst tool for either regional or national economic developmentThe XIO is a blockchain startup network focused on launching innovative, original, and experimental ideas into the decentralized world through an incubator where XIO Collaborators offer their services to the XIO Companies that get accepted into the network.And with over 50 applications, UPTRENND and OPACITY is the first 2 nominations and of course only one would get to be picked and incubated. So a vote is necessary.To vote, you need to be a citizen of XIO and have stakes and or own XIO Tokens which is a ERC - 20 one that can be found on 2 exchanges. Good thing is that there is no minimum to how much you own before you cast your vote. Want to see UPTRENND incubated? You must be a XIO holder to vote. If you are not, keep your fingers crossed and wish us well as this means so much to the community.See video instruction on how to stake here https://youtu.be/CWAmssFXTIgFind direct link to start up page here https://xio.network/startups/By the way, have you entered for the themed Logo Contest?Do that here https://www.uptrennd.com/post-detail/december-6th-uptrennd-s-24-days-of-celebrations-xio-uptrennd-themed-logo-contest~MTgyNDQw
For the last 4 years, I have taught hundreds of business owners to grow their Facebook following and I have grown my pages to over 4 Million Followers. However, there are newer social media platforms coming up all the time and one of them is Uptrennd.
In this article, I want to show you some of the things I learned about growing a Facebook platform and how you can use it for Uptrennd.
As the Uptrennd platform grows it's going to become more competitive to get upvotes on your posts and your comments. So from the start establish a great Uptennd practice and follow these principles and you'll get a lot more out of this platform.
The 3 Way Relationship
When you start creating content for Uptrennd think of the 3 main entities involved: The Reader, Uptrennd and Yourself
The Uptrennd Perspective
Think about what Uptrennd wants from its users: they want their users to read great content and to share posts and upvote posts on their platform and they want to keep them on their platform as long as possible.
To keep readers using their platform Uptrennd want to see quality content and quality comments. Not just comments that are there for the upvote but engaging comments that show you have read and watched the content.
The Readers Perspective
You’re a user of Uptrennd, what type of stories do you like to read on your feed or on the trending page, do you like videos, do you like quotes, do you like questions, polls, quizzes. just think about how you use Uptrennd and how you like to interact on it.
When you’re posting anything to your own channel you’ve always got to have the reader in mind, it’s the reader who will share your posts, upvote your posts, click on your videos, interact with you in some way.
So from the readers perspective you’ve got to have content that stands out, say something that's not really been said before, ultimately you’re trying to: Educate, Enlighten or Entertain the readers of your page and do it in a way that nobody else does.
Your Own Perspective
Okay so what do you want from uptrennd: do you want more upvotes, more points, do you want a higher engagement, do you want sales, do you want readers to click on over to your blog posts, do you want to gain more email subscribers. Think about what you really want from your channel on Uptrennd and what your goal is for each of your posts.
When you think about every single post you put up ask yourself: ‘What do I want this post to achieve for myself’
Now that may sound a little silly, given that you want everything, but each post is going to achieve a different goal.
Your image quotes, for example, are there to enlighten and entertain and you ultimately you want them to be shared and get comments.
Your videos are there to possibly educate and enlighten, or if you post funny videos they are there to entertain, but you also want them to be shared, liked and commented on.
Your offers for free ebooks, for example, are there to get you subscribers and ultimately to lead to sales of your products and services.
Your blog post links are there to get clicks over to your site and maybe make money from ads on your site, so you want them to be shared and liked as much as possible to get even more clicks.
The Three Es
Every single one of your posts should fall into one of these categories: Entertain, Educate or Enlighten. So ask yourself every time you are going to post something; "Does it entertain, educate or entertain the reader/viewer?" if the answer is no then don't post it. Okay, that's a quick mindset lesson to think about when posting. Here are 9 ways to get more upvotes on Uptrennd.
9 Ways to Get More Upvotes on Uptrennd
1. Add Images
Adding images will keep your readers engaged more on your content and will help them to skim before deciding whether or not to read the whole article.
2. Only Post Great Content
Remember the Three Es. Create great content and your following will go up and readers will keep coming back for more. You want to be known as a person who posts great content and word of mouth and sharing and upvoting will take of your numbers for you. So focus on great content and focus on your readers and the numbers will take care of themselves.
3. Be a Part Of The Community
Your Uptrennd channel is nothing to do with you and your ego it's ALL to do with the community and what you can give to the community so make sure you become a part of the community and read and interact with other users content.
4. Don't Comment For The Upvote
It's become clear to me that a lot of users will just leave a comment for the upvote when it has become clear that the user has not ven read the post they're commenting on. Don't do that as you will lose respect and you won't get the upvote for your comments.
5. Add Links For Videos
Videos are highly engaging and let readers get to know you much better and quicker than the written word can, so if you're a video creator use that content to add to uptrennd.
6. Link To Other Great Content
If you come across Uptrennd content that is really useful then link to it in your own content. this is a sign of respect and keep the community tighter when you do this.
7. Three Posts Per Day
At the moment you can add three posts per day. Think about what you can do every day to add value and think about a series of posts. I have tried a 'Traders Quote Of the Day', you could try other things like Chart Of The Day, News Of the Day, Best Post of The Day, as well as your own content that you post on youtube.
8. Don't Be Afraid To Experiment
the only way to find out what readers really want on Uptrennd is to try new things. Don't be afraid to try something new for a week or two, if it doesn't work try something else.
9. Always Interact With Your Readers
This is very important. I know., I know, you're a busy person but if someone has taken the time out to write a comment to you and it is a genuine comment, then you should take the time to acknowledge that either with an upvote or a reply. You are part of a community and you should always remember that. I hope you found this quick guide useful, let me know any other tips you think would be useful.
