TikTok has been under investigation by the NSA for over a year. This does not come overnight, all the brands & influencers who utilized it knew full well it was spyware. Good riddance.

Buying Crypto With CashApp: Cryptocurrency For All The birth of crypto and it's inception into the foreign exchange market and commercial transactions is to a large extent a relatively new concept to many. Like all new concepts, the use of crypto has been faced with the problem of acceptability and accessibility. A major cause of these challenges remains the fact that not a lot of platforms have made it available for customers and small-scale users who just want to buy small units of crypto. A lot of the platforms that sell Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies do not allow for retail purchases. And when you get hold of those platforms that allow for retail purchases, they charge exorbitant commissions per transaction. Again, the user interface of some of these platforms is so difficult to understand that one may even need a tutorial sometimes to know how to sign up, register an account, and then purchase crypto. Amidst the seemingly insurmountable challenges, the upside is that the crypto world is drastically evolving. With this shift in trend, many financial platforms are beginning to incorporate the use of crypto; especially Bitcoin in their operations. Resultantly, crypto has become more accessible and usable. Although a huge setback in this innovative drive is the presence of scam sites and fraudulent hackers who use the info of users to steal #crypto, there are a few verified trustworthy platforms that come highly recommended and have been tested over time. An example of a site that has joined the innovation of incepting crypto into their many options is CashApp. CashApp is not just fast and easy to work with. It also makes the flow of cash more convenient. For instance, you can pay directly into your CashApp with a cheque from your bank and then immediately purchase Bitcoin from the CashApp. The amazing about CashApp is that it lets you be the middleman in your own transactions. Thus you're able to get rid of those high commissions charged per transaction on other platforms. The App allows you to work with crypto as you would a with a fiat currency. Many users are starting to switch into CashApp because unlike other applications and websites, #CashApp lets you have your bank, your mobile wallet, your #Bitcoin, and your crypto #wallet all in one App which is accessible on any smartphone device once your password is entered. In addition to its many features, the App is also very secure. It allows for a two-factor authentication protocol. This makes it even harder and practically impossible for a third party to get access to your account unless you give out your password. The icing on the cake is the fact that the CashApp has a user-friendly interface that even a beginner can understand without any guidance. If you can use your bank #mobile app or an ATM machine you can use the CashApp. CashApp has done an amazing job of making Bitcoin accessible. Many other applications should do the same.

Why I Left Hive's Toxic Culture - Downfalls of #Decentralized Media Creating content is not an easy task. It takes more than just talent, creativity, and willpower to start a project and finish it. Even some write-ups as little as articles are not easy to crack. Sometimes creators spend hours researching a topic and comparing personal research with information in other materials. This task is even more difficult when one is a blogger. The reasons for this are multifarious. First, there’s the need to be creative and produce interesting, insightful, and useful content. Second, there’s the need to be consistent with posts and ensure that the content keeps coming in at a steady pace periodically. Third, one has to ensure that the blog posts are SEO optimized in order to engage a larger audience of readers. Then again, after building a reader audience across a particular niche, one has to ensure that fresh content with originality and creativity keeps coming in at an impressive pace in order to maintain the standard. This is why I strongly believe that intellectual property of any kind should be given a very high regard in all possible respects. Sadly, not everyone shares this notion with me. There are some classes of persons who do not empathize with the struggles of a creator in producing each piece. Still, these persons try to feed off of the worth of such writings. As a blogger and content creator, I have spent years creating useful and creative content on crypto and crypto-related topics. Just like any creator, I decided to join an already existing community of bloggers and readers on the Hive network. My #Hive experience went well from the very beginning. I kept publishing posts on crypto-related subjects and got good feedbacks from the community. To return the goodwill I had enjoyed from the Hive platform, I always promoted their brand whenever I did publications on other social media platforms. And that was a lot; being that I belong to over twenty-six social media channels. Apart from just talking about the Hive #network on videos, write-ups, and social media posts, I always used footers or headers to promote their brand. So if you just took a glance at a video without even playing it, you would see the Hive logo on a corner of the paused video; either below or as a header. I maintained the same standards across all my social media platforms. And this wasn’t an issue at all until I got nominated as one of the best influencers by #Binance. This was when I started to notice a decline in response and people suddenly began to downvote my posts. Being human, I aired out my grievances and some people said it was just constructive criticism to make me better. It would have been okay to leave things the way they were. I mean, everybody is entitled to their own opinions. But I noticed something again. The downvotes were by top stakeholders in the hive community. Their apparent reason for the bad energy towards my work was the fact that I put my brand on each post I made. They wanted me to stop adding the “CryptoFinally” tags and all the other tags that advertised my work. At the same time, they wanted me to only put out their brand as though my work was theirs. I wasn’t comfortable with this culture and so I had to leave. You may not agree with me, but I strongly believe that a writer should have some say about exclusive content created by that writer even if it is published on another platform. Besides, I have no contract with them regarding branding or advertising. I found the culture contradictory to my personal and professional values and so I had to part ways with them.
