Airdrops raise awareness, even Paypal (pre blockchain) discovered the awareness effect, and goodwill giving away $20 to sign up and verify your account back in the early 2000s. Paypal is now a household word and $50 billion company.
This awareness has a tendency to increase the token value as well as create a network effect. IE: A network effect (also called network externality or demand-side economies of scale) is the positive effect described in economics and business that an additional user of a good or service has on the value of that product to others.
TheUOmiseGo conducted the first airdrop of this kind and amplitude on September 4th, 2017 – distributing 5% of the total issuance of OMG token to every ETH address, with a minimum balance of 0.1 ETH. The airdrop enabled each ETH holder, by providing them with a share of the 5%, proportional to their share of the total circulating supply of Ether.
The aim of the airdrop was to allow the token to be distributed as widely as possible, allowing for true decentralization of the platform, to ultimately increase its network security.
On the chart below from Google Trends, you can see that a surge in search interest related to OmiseGo occurred during the days of the airdrop, reaching a peak close to the end of 2017, and dropping to a tenth of the search interest in June 2018. Most websites such as CoinDesk, CoinTelegraph, and much of the Twittersphere spoke about the airdrop, leading to many people wondering what the project was about, and increasing OMG brand awareness.
There are numerous examples of Companies giving away their tokens, some more successful than others during their Airdrops, so in summary, it is strongly evident the additional benefits awareness causes trading and coin demand increase drives coin prices up.
Inspired by the Paypal Hack, the Dropbox Campaign, then Crypto based Airdrops by OMG, EOS and TRON, amazing successes, effective yet short events; Markethive in the spirit of the Bitcoin Faucet and Universal Income is delivering the Infinity Airdrop. Simply join Markethive and receive coin, an offer with no end.
I assume most people know what a faucet is, but I am wrong in that assumption. It is a relatively new phenomenon, in that by simply visiting a website, entering in your Bitcoin wallet address, and solving a simple captcha challenge you can get paid free Bitcoin. Case in point:
Imagine a faucet giving away 5BTC! That’s what Gavin Andresen’s faucet was paying back in June of 2010. It was his first bitcoin-related coding project and he started it off with 1,100btc. At today’s prices, that’s close to $7 Million. Your claim of 5btc would be worth almost $32,000!
The concept created a huge, subculture phenomenon; with literally 1000s of sites operating like survey sites to get free Bitcoin. Unfortunately, the process today is anti-productive and only the most stalwart contenders are able to keep to the tasks due to the oppressive popup ads, viruses, browser hijackings, etc. The concept is intriguing and we believe the promise is solid, just waiting for a system to do this right.
There is something there, blockchain, crypto, anti-inflationary coins, faucets and airdrops, and Universal Income. Conventional Wisdom seems to think by heavily taxing the elite and profitable business interests, the masses can be given a sustainable income to survive. We do not agree. It is nothing more than a repackaged attempt at communism, stealing from the rich by the middleman, and giving to the poor, creating an entitlement culture, and a rich and powerful middleman (after all they will become more equal than you) bureaucracy and autocrats running the show. There is the absence of any motivation for the recipient of their allotted Universal Income (thereby destroying self-esteem) and the whole idea supports tyranny in every way.
We offer an alternative Universal Income. Get paid to support the entrepreneurial culture by simply working at building your dream within the ecosystem of Markethive. To attract the masses of entrepreneurs, we launch and operate the Airdrop. The never-ending Airdrop.
Markethive has set goals to build out portfolios of Coin Exchanges (like Bittrex and Cryptopia), News Sites (Like Cointelegraph and News.Bitcoin), Web building systems (like Wix and Volusion), Green House hybrid mining systems, and an ongoing strategy to build “money machines” to contribute to the sustainability of the Markethive Universal Income for Entrepreneurs.
Markethive’s vision is to deliver Entrepreneurs a Universal Income in an Ecocenter environment designed to accelerate success as well as return huge profits to the founders who financed the initial stages of the platform.
500 coins will be transferred to every new subscriber to Markethive upon completion of the registration process. An additional 100% matching bonus will be awarded to (either) the qualifying referrer, or in a rotational share assigned to a qualifying member in the CAP (*Customer Acquisition Program) Thus 1000 coins will be used for every new subscriber, thereby producing 1 million new Markethive subscribers.
To qualify for the matching bonus, the *CAP, and other benefits, the subscriber must upgrade to the Entrepreneur level at $100 per month. The benefits of this upgrade far outweigh the monthly costs.
The Entrepreneur upgrade is explained in detail further down.
In scores of focus groups when the participants understand the benefits with the Entrepreneur upgrade we consistently get 100% of the participants agreeing they would enthusiastically upgrade to Entrepreneur.
No other system out there has the advantage to do this. We are well branded. Markethive perfectly brands and illustrates exactly what we are. A Market Network, a name easily remembered, a name that has been trademarked in the US and internationally in as many classes possible, ensuring command over the usage of the name. We have also taken control of 95% of all TLD domains. We also control the name as a username on every Social Network that matters.

Markethive has been operational in BETA with over 5000 subscribers for nearly 4 years. Our entire system is run on our copyrighted code. It is a proven system and continually improves. We have just recently executed a major Upgrade with more upgrades to come as we move closer to our end goal. We are just a breath away to our 1st Infinity Airdrop, so we are gearing up to invite more People to come on board and take advantage of this Ground Floor Opportunity of being a Shareholder in what is the Godzilla and a unique Network Marketing Media that’s dwarfs all others that try to emulate it.
Appendix of options and requirements:
– Mention 3 referrers activate the Micro Payment system
Markethive is in the process of converting to the blockchain to increase security, ensure privacy and establish digital currency viability. Blockchain conversion gives us our own coin to conduct internal commerce but also trade and commerce outside globally.
Having our own viable coin, allows us to activate a micro Payment system, to reward active members, with a real Universal Income with Markethive tradeable coin. Our system is already a viable, community economy.
Everything (Airdrop, Inbound Marketing, Social Networks, Blogging Platform, Broadcasting, Groups, Campaigns, Capture Pages, Conference Rooms, earning free coins, Messaging, Wallets, etc.) in Markethive is free. You can even be rewarded for referring your friends and traffic to sign up via the Infinity Airdrop. Markethive has a Micro Payment reward system where you can earn income by simply using the tools of the system. To activate it, you simply refer 3 people to sign up via your profile page.
Earn 100% Matching Bonus on all signups referred through your profile page. This can be as much as 500 coins, traffic 1000 people to register through your profile page and earn up to 500,000 coins. (Steem a social networked blog blockchain platform only, coins are trading at $1.30 and earlier this year had reached over $6 per coin. We expect Markethive coin to eclipse Steem once Markethive gets rolling).
Facebook makes friends, LinkedIn makes connections, and Twitter makes contacts. None of these give you additional social accounts, verified phone number, full name, IP, agreement to connect, etc. Markethive’s Entrepreneur program acquires this for you and calls them Associates, superior lead development within a nurturing program.
Buying customers is a relatively new concept. Trivita does this for its distributors. Buy a marketing share and receive 1 customer. They charge between $60 to $150 per customer. It is a sound concept and helps to grow the budget for larger advertising campaigns. The Entrepreneur upgrade is built on this concept. We take the revenue raised by the Entrepreneur Upgrade and run million dollar ad campaigns, video ads, press releases, articles, social networked reaches to drive the awareness of the Markethive Airdrop, the Markethive system, and the Markethive Universal Income.
Our Co-op sells shares, which means you could receive a lot of “customer” referral signups, not just one.
Thomas Prendergast the CEO and Founder of Markethive coined the term “Traffic Portals” back in the 90s. Traffic Portals offer something of value. A news site, a search engine is a version of a Traffic Portal. Markethive already has a portfolio of Traffic sites in the works;
Bigcaboodle.com (A WIX like web site builder)
Aboutbitco.in (A news site like Cointegraph.com)
Hiveroom.com (A webinar service like Gotomeeting)
Beelancers.com (A freelancers peer to peer commerce type site)
Market Exchange (A crypto coin Exchange site)
CryptoPonics (A hybrid coin mining and herb greenhouse facility)
The epitome of Inbound Marketing is the Traffic Portals. They assist in generating additional traffic that converts to customers for your benefit as the Entrepreneur upgrade at Markethive.
Banners appear throughout all Markethive dashboard pages, blogs, and Traffic Portals. Exposure is guaranteed. Banner advertising is exclusive to the Entrepreneur Upgrade. Banner ads may run up to 7 days. Compare to other systems banner ad programs average $100 per day per banner. Banner ad placement in the Markethive system is unlimited.
As an Entrepreneur Upgrade, you also get your own replicated IO site. An IO site is the web page we use to raise crowdfunding. Most blockchain start-ups, like TRON, EOS, OMG, etc. utilize a similar type of page for their ICO (Initial Coin Offering)
Having your own replicated site will tag all crowdfunding applicants to you. Any ILP that is processed will earn you an equal shadow version of that ILP. The only difference a shadow ILP is to an active ILP is the shadow is not actively sharing profit until the crowdfunding campaign is completed. Then the shadow ILPs become active for the same terms the ILPs have.
This can be a significant opportunity to build an investment that has the potential to return significant revenue over the years of the terms of the ILP.
