MeWe: A trip report
Among the more frequently mentioned G+ alternatives at the Google+ Mass Migration community, and others, is MeWe with over 250 mentions. The site bills itself as "The Next-Gen Social Network" and the "anti-Facebook": "No Ads, No Political Bias, No Spyware. NO BS. It is headed by professed Libertarian CEO Mark Weinstein. As the site reveals no public user-generated content to non-members, it's necessary to create an account in order to get a full impression. I thought I'd provide an overview based on recent explorations. This report leads of with background on the company, though readers may find the report and analysis of specific groups on the site of interest.
Founder & CEO Mark Weinstein. Co-Founder & Chief Scientist, Jonathan Wolfe (no longer with company). Weinstein previously founded SuperFamily and SuperFriends, "at the turn of the millennium". Weinstein's MeWe biography lists articles published by The Mirror (UK), Huffington Post, USA Today, InfoSecurity Magazine, Dark Reading, and the Nation. His media appearances include MarketWatch, PBS, Fox News, and CNN. He's also the author of several personal-success books. His Crunchbase bio is a repeat of the MeWe content.

There are a few mentions of MeWe in the press, some listed on the company's website, others via web search.
The following articles are linked directly from MeWe's Press page:
The page also lists a "Privacy Revolution Required Reading" list of 20 articles all addressing Facebook privacy gaffes in the mainstream press (Wired, TechCrunch, Fortune, Gizmodo, The Guardian, etc.). There are further self-reported mentions in several of the company's PR releases over the years.
Facebook Alternative MeWe Raises $5.2M, Los Angeles Business Journal (July 7, 2018) "The latest round, as well as MeWe’s total $10 million in fundraising, was predominantly backed by celebrity investors, such as author Marci Shimoff, Rachel Roy, and Lynda Weinman, founder of Lynda.com, which sold to Linkedin in 2015 for $1.5 billion. Jack Canfield, creator of the “Chicken Soup for the Soul” book series, also invested in MeWe."
Is building a Facebook alternative worth the effort? MeWe thinks soVentureBeat (July 5, 2018) "[T]here are still companies hoping to make their mark in the social networking realm with “Facebook alternatives.” One of those is MeWe, a “next-generation” social network that positions itself as the anti-Facebook: “Your private life is not for sale. No ads. No Spyware. No BS,” its website proclaims." Continues to mention "modest $5.2 million" funding round. Also a "sister product", MeWePRO, a Slack competitor.
Startup MeWe Launches Free, 'No Ads' Social NetworkeWeek (March 16, 2016) "MeWe, a new network engineered with its users' data privacy built in, is betting that a lot of people will say yes to both of those questions. The Mountain View, Calif.-based startup, whose parent company is Sgrouples.com, launched its freely available social network out of beta March 9 with more than 200,000 members already using it.... Sir Tim Berners-Lee, co-architect of the World Wide Web, found out about MeWe on his own and approached the company about getting involved."
Facebook Alternative MeWe closes $5.2M Series A Yahoo/PR Newswire (July 5, 2018). "The investment brings MeWe's total funding to $10 million, to support the engineering of MeWe and the enterprise version MeWePRO.... The company has relied on high net worth individuals for all of its funding including Lynda Weinman, founder of Lynda.com ...; Marci Shimoff, a #1 New York Times bestselling author ...; Rachel Roy...; and Jack Canfield."
Exactis Data Leak 2018: 340 Million Records ExposedInvestorPlace (June 29, 2018) "'Today's cookies can link your mobile phone to your laptop, to your home monitoring devices, and much, much more. Creepy? Scary? Orwellian? Yes, yes, yes,' Mark Weinstein, the privacy expert and founder of social media company MeWe, told MarketWatch. 'So imagine that Exactis, like Facebook, knows everything about you — really.'"
MeWe Raises $3M in FundingFinSMEs (March 9, 2016) "Sgrouples, Inc., the Mountain View, CA-based developer of MeWe, a social network with neither ads nor tracking, raised $3m in funding."
This section is a basic rundown of the user-visible site technology.
The site is not natively accessible from a mobile Web browser as it is overlayed with a promotion for the mobile application instead. Selecting "Desktop View" in most mobile browsers should allow browser-based access.
There are both Android and iOS apps for MeWe. I've used neither of these, though the App store entries note:
MeWe Android 4.4 rating (13.1k ratings). Permissions: Contacts (read), Location (approximate/precise), SMS (receive), Phone (read status & identity), Photos/Media/Files (read, modify, & delete contents), Storage (read, modify, or delete), Camera (take pictures/videos), Microphone (record audio), Device ID & Call Info (read status & identity), and numerous elements under Other.
Crunchbase cites 209,220 mobile downloads over the past 30 days (via Apptopia), an 80.78% monthly growth rate, from Google Play.
Either selecting "View Desktop" or navigating with a Desktop browser to https://www.mewe.com your are presented with a registration screen, with the "About", "Privacy Bill of Rights", "MeWe Challenge", and a language selector across the top of the page. Information requested are first and last name, phone or email, and a password. Pseudonymous identities are permitted, though this isn't noted on the login screen. Returning members can use the "Member Log In" button. The uMatrix Firefox extension reveals no third-party content: all page elements are served from mewe.com, img.mewe.com, cdn.mewe.com, or ws.mewe.com. (In subsequent browsing, you may find third-party plugins from, for example, YouTube, for videos, or Giphy, for animated GIFs.) The web front-end is nginx. The site uses SSL v3, issued by DigiCert Inc. to Sgrouples, Inc.
The onboarding experience is stark. There is no default content presented. A set of unidentified icons spans the top of the screen, these turn out to be Home, Chats, Groups, Pages, and Events. New users have to, somehow, find groups or people to connect with, and there's little guidance as to how to do this.
Generally there is a three panel view, with left- and right-hand sidebars of largely navigational or status information, and a central panel with main content. There are also pop-up elements for chats, an omnipresent feature of the site. Controls display labels on some devices and/or resolutions. Controls do not provide tooltips for navigational aid.
My Cloud - Seamlessly organize all your content in My Cloud; it's your personal cloud. My Cloud offers an interactive dashboard for you to control everything you’ve posted or shared - making it simple to delete or reshare.
Unique profiles - Be yourself, free from any tracking and spying. Customize your profile for every group you create or join.
Voice integration (on any or all content) - Post pictures, videos, or documents and include a voice message. Respond to a shared post or just chat. MeWe’s voice integration works for you and your contacts throughout the entire platform.
Universal tagging - This is a new, convenient way to sort and organize all the content you receive and share, making it easy to find everything, anytime.
Enhanced permission control (patent issued) - Manage permissions on a granular level and decide exactly who sees what. You can also remove yourself from the search directory, make yourself invisible to other members online, and much more.
Much More – join MeWe today and take a look inside! MeWe is the next-gen social networking experience designed for you to have fun, stay in touch, collaborate, organize, and simplify.
A key aspect of any social network is its community. Some of the available or ascertained information on this follows.
Weinstein claims a "million+ following inside MeWe.com" on Twitter. The largest visible groups appear to have a maximum of around 15,000 members , for "Awesome gifs". "Clean Comedy" rates 13,350, and the largest open political groups, 11,000+ members. This compares to Google+ which has a staggering, though Android-registrations-inflated 3.3 billion profiles, and 7.9 million communities, though the largest of these come in at under 10 million members. It's likely that MeWe's membership is on the whole more more active than Google+'s, where generally-visible posting activity was limited to just over 9% of all profiles, and the active user base was well under 1% of the total nominal population.
MeWe do not publish active users (e.g., MUA / monthly active users) statistics.
MeWe is principally a group-oriented discussion site -- interactions take place either between individuals or within group contexts. Virtually all discovery is group-oriented. The selection and dynamics of groups on the site will likely strongly affect user experience, so exploring the available groups and their characteristics is of interest. "MeWe has over 60,000 open groups" according to its FAQ. The Open groups -- visible to any registered MeWe user, though not to the general public Web -- are browsable, though sections and topics must be expanded to view the contents: an overview isn't immediately accessible. We provide a taste here. A selection of ten featured topics spans the top of the browser. As I view these, they are:
Health & Fitness
Cars & Motorcycles
Fashion and Beauty
Specific groups may appear in multiple categories. The top Groups within these topics have, variously, 15,482, 7,738, 15,482 (dupe), 7,745, 8,223, 8,220, 1,713, 9,527, 2,716, and 1,516 members. Listings scroll at length -- the Music topic has 234 Groups, ranging in size from 5 to 5,738 members, with a median of 59, mean of 311.4, and a 90%ile of 743.5. Below this is a grid of topics, 122 in all, ranging from Activism to Wellness, and including among them. A selected sample of these topics, with top groups listed members in (parens), follows:
Activism: QAnon+++ (2,572), PATRIOT PREPPERS USA (2,430), Deplorables Republic (2,48), The War Drummer (1,898), Patriots for a United America. (1894), Anonymous (1,700).

Privacy: Join the Open/Privacy Movement (3974), Kingsport tn gun trader (1,157), Safer Computing (555).
To be clear: whilst I've not included every topic, I've sampled a majority of them above, and listed not an arbitrary selection, but the top few Groups under each topic.
Google Plus expats (1,862)
Google+ Refugees (186)
G+ Refugees (101)
my Google+ expatriates
The Google Plus expats group seems the most active of these by far.
It's curious that MeWe make a specific point in their FAQ that:
At MeWe we have absolutely no political agenda and we have a very straightforward Terms of Service. MeWe is for all law-abiding people everywhere in the world, regardless of political, ethnic, religious, sexual, and other preferences.
There are 403 political groups on MeWe. I won't list them all here, but the first 100 or so give a pretty clear idea of flavour. Again, membership is in (parentheses). Note that half the total political Groups memberships are in the first 21 groups listed here, the first 6 are 25% of the total.

Green Party Supporters 2020 (283)
It seems there is relatively little representation from the left wing, or even the centre, of the political spectrum. A case-insensitive match for "liberal" turns up:
104: Conservatives Against Liberal Beliefs C.A.L.I.B (273)
184: Progressive and Liberal Politics (119)
301: Liberalism is a Mental Disorder (33)
302: Resistance Against Liberal Socialism (33)
358: NOT For Liberals (17)
367: Drinking Liberally Houston (14)
400: Stephanie Miller's Sexy Liberal Army (6)
Mainstream political parties are little represented, though again, the balance seems skewed searching on "(democrat|republic|gop)":
391: Saving The Republic: Video News & Opinion (8)
The terms "left" and "right" provide a few matches, not all strictly political-axis aligned:
7: The Right To Self Defense (3757)
80: RISE OF THE RIGHT (371)
150: POLITICS ON THE LEFT (156)
157: 1st Amendment Rights Protected By The 2nd Amendmen (141)
209: On The Left With Jeremy Corbyn (84)
262: Eyes-Left Labour & PP - Social Media (49)
300: Gather Left (33)
385: Defend Washington State Gun Rights (9)
390: Left Coast Conservatives (8)
Socialism and Communism also warrant a few mentions:
121: Revolutionary Socialists United (204)
216: Socialist Thought (79)
220: Stories Of Communism (76)
262: Eyes-Left Labour & PP - Social Media (49)
288: Snuggly Wuggly Socialists (38)
302: Resistance Against Liberal Socialism (33)
And there are some references to green, laboulabor parties:
97: FRIENDS THAT LIKE JILL STEIN AND THE GREEN PARTY (292)
100: Green Party Supporters 2020 (283)
262: Eyes-Left Labour & PP - Social Media (49)
320: Green Party of Ohio Issues & Discussion Group (29)
Whilst there may not be a political agenda, there does appear to be at least a slight political bias to the site. And a distinctive skew on many other topical subjects. Those seeking new homes online may wish to take this into account.

This section covers questions about beermoney in general. This includes questions about exchanging gift cards, what equipment to use, issues with a site not working or offers not crediting, info on posting a giveaway or tasks, taxes, using VPNS/VPS/etc, and other general questions.
Due to an increase in spam posts, new posts must be manually approved by a mod before showing up. Most posts will be approved within 12-24 hours. Please be patient during this time. If your post has not been approved in 24 hours, you likely broke a rule or you simply weren't posting about a /beermoney topic. Having the opportunity to make money does not necessarily make your post /beermoney. Sign up bonuses, crytocurrency wallets, investments, affiliate marketing, actual jobs, and other such things are not /beermoney.
WHY DID MY NEEVO / DEFINED CROWD TASK COUNTER GO DOWN?
This typically happens when you've missed a lot of attention checks or were kicked off the job. Don't worry, you should still get paid as long as you weren't giving bad answers. It may take a bit longer for them to validate your answers, and you may get paid a bit less due to the incorrect answers. Make sure to shoot them an email though.
WHY CAN'T I DO ANY TASKS FOR NEEVO / DEFINED CROWD?
Are you being invited to jobs? — Neevo invites their best workers to new jobs first. You may get an opportunity later.
Is your task counter correct? — Your number of tasks will drop if you are banned from the job for failing too many attention checks.
Is the job still active? — It's possible that they simply ran out of tasks. Jobs are not closed until the project is completed and verified. Check back later to see if more tasks have been added.
WHY HASN'T MY NEEVO / DEFINED CROWD PAYMENT HASN'T ARRIVED YET?
Give them some time. They pay out after the job has been completed and validated. It can take a few weeks to get paid. If the job has been closed for a few weeks and you still haven't received payment, send them an email: [email protected]
I HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT QUICKTHOUGHTS / IPOLL
Is It Legit?
Quickthoughts does pay some people. However, they are extremely ban happy. You WILL be banned eventually.
Making A Second Account
You are not permitted to make a second account under any circumstances. It does not matter if you were wrongfully banned.
iPhone only gets iTunes and Android only gets Amazon. If you are unhappy about your selection, consider selling or trading your gift card in one of the places mentioned later on in this post. It is possible to log into your account from another device, but this increases your chances of being banned.
Surveys pay between $0.50 and $2 per survey. Different people make different rates depending on their demographics.
HOW CAN I EXCHANGE GOOGLE PLAY CREDITS FOR PAYPAL/BITCOIN/ETC?
There's no easy way to do it. Your options include:
Find someone willing to trade an app for money (you buy the app for them, they give you money).
Make an app and set up a payment system. Then spend your credits through the app you made.
Complete an offer on a site like Swagbucks where you are awarded for spending credits.
MTURK DENIED MY APPLICATION. WHY?
Mturk is only available for users age 18 or older. They primarily invite US citizens and permanent residents, but some international workers are accepted as well. Their selection process is seemingly random. If you weren't accepted, you may unexpectedly be approved in the following weeks/months.
WHY AM I NOT GETTING ANY SURVEYS?
Did you just join yesterday? — New users often see more surveys available on their first day due to the site already having a batch of surveys available. You need to wait for more to get added.
Is it during a holiday or a summewinter break? — Many sites such as mTurk and Prolific offer academic studies. This means that there will be more surveys during the school year, and far fewer during summer and holiday breaks. Also, there are more people looking for work during the breaks.
Are you checking the site constantly? — Surveys go quickly on the better paying sites. You may only get a few seconds to a couple minutes to accept the task.
Are you outside the USA? — There tends to be fewer surveys for non-USA workers.
Were you speeding or lying on previous surveys? — You may have been banned.
If you still aren't seeing any surveys after a few weeks, you may just not be in a desirable demographic. It doesn't hurt to contact support to ensure there isn't anything wrong with your account, but chances are there just hasn't been a survey needing you yet.
THESE @#%& SURVEYS KEEP DISQUALIFYING ME!!
Yes, that will happen.
BUT I SPENT 30 MINUTES ON IT!
Yup. It happens. Survey portals are notorious for disqualifying people. Sites that specialize in doing just surveys tend to be better. Basically, if you're on a site that has an offer wall and surveys, expect disqualifications to happen.
There are a few ways to prevent it, but nothing is guaranteed.
Take a couple screenshots as you progress through the survey, especially towards the end. Sometimes support will credit you if you bring it to their attention.
Don't rush, and don't walk away in the middle of a survey. If you're getting disqualified a lot, try counting to 5 after each question.
Always be consistent in your answers. There are a lot of questions designed to figure out if you're telling the truth or not. If your answers keep changing, you'll be disqualified.
Watch out for attention check questions. Sometimes questions will ask you to select a certain response, answer questions about text you've just read, or ask you silly questions such as "Are you an alien?".
OFFERS AREN'T CREDITING ME!
Make sure you don't have an adblock or any other extensions that could be interfering with it. Allowing the site isn't enough, you need to disable them. I recommend using a separate browser or profile for doing offers. It's also incredibly important to clear your cache between offers. Vanilla cookie manager is a good extension for this. Even if you do clear the cache, some offers just don't like to credit. /Swagbucks is a great place to see what offers are currently crediting easily. Since many sites use the same offer walls, you can probably find the same offers on another site. If you met the requirements for an offer and it didn't credit, the only way to get credited is to contact the support for the offer wall and show them proof that the requirements were met.
I'M HAVING A PROBLEM WITH A SITE
Is your cash out taking forever? or Is the site just not working right? - Look on a relevant subreddit, facebook or twitter. If there is a problem, people will be posting about it. If there's no mention of the problem, try asking on those subreddits, facebook or on twitter. If you don't know where to look, just go to google and type in the website name and what site you're looking for. For example "Swagbucks reddit" will bring you right to /Swagbucks. This works for facebook, twitter, whatever you need. If all else fails, contact support.
Is the site not loading? Try clearing your cookies. If that doesn't work, try another browser or another device. If it still isn't working, follow the advice above about "Is the site just not working right?". If you can't find anything about it, try waiting an hour or two, or even wait until the next day. There could be some issue on the website. If all else fails, contact support.
Can't login? Follow the instructions above about the site not loading. There's also a chance you've been banned. Some companies won't alert you to bans and will just suddenly remove your ability to login. Follow the advice below for "Have you been banned for no reason?"
Have you been banned for no reason? Contact support. There is absolutely nothing we can do for you here. A few site owners browse this place, but the bulk of us are just general users. Just be polite and friendly. If you didn't do anything wrong, you'll likely get your account unbanned. Sometimes a site's fraud detection is triggered on accident. If you were banned by Quickthoughts, you likely will not be unbanned, but it still doesn't hurt to send them a message.
Having another problem? You're best off just contacting support. Most of the people here are general users. If you need individualized help, contact support.
I CONTACTED SUPPORT AND GOT AN AUTOMATED REPLY. WHAT NOW?
If you get a reply and it doesn't answer your question, then send a polite reply. Make sure to restate what you said in the previous email. Don't just copy and paste; they may have misunderstood what you needed the first time. Keep it short and to the point. Under no circumstances should you yell, swear, or be rude to the staff. Remember, you are asking for their help. Being rude will only get you longer wait times, more copy and pasted responses, and potentially banned. Support is more likely to help those who are polite, so say hello and thank you with each email.
HOW DO I TRACK MY EARNINGS?
Most people use a spreadsheet. Here are a few options: One | Two | Three If you're interested in making your own spreadsheet, here are a few ideas: One | Two
WHAT EQUIPMENT SHOULD I USE?
Many people recommend /Ubiquiti I used a cheap TP-link which worked well for up to around 15 devices.
At the bare minimum, you want a dual core with Android 4.4.2. I highly recommend getting at least Android 5.0, as many apps will not work with lower spec devices. A few places to check out would be Walmart, Best Buy, Tracfone, Straight Talk, and Amazon. Sales are fairly random, so keep your eye out. You can also get devices on eBay and C7Recycle but do take note that these are often used/refurbished devices and they may not last as long. Sometimes it's cheaper in the long run to just buy new devices.
Look on ebay or craigslist. Buying used will usually get you a better price than buying new. You want at least a dual core with 4GB of RAM, but a quad core with 8GB of RAM will do you much better.
Powered USB Hubs
Many people like these. Never cheap out on your USB hubs - get a quality brand hub or stick with the OEM chargers.
Check out this post. - Although, I disagree about the auto refresher and adblock. Both of those can get you banned by many beermoney sites. FRQc is also great. Just set it to "auto low" and all of the flash videos will load faster.
Check out /BeermoneyHomeNetwork for help with configurations. The posts are old, but the info is solid. It's just one of those things that doesn't change.
DO I HAVE TO FILE TAXES?
Short answer: Yes. Long answer: It doesn't matter if you get PayPal, Cryptocurrency, Gift Cards, physical items, or whatever else. It is all considered income because you are earning it in exchange for a service. In the USA, once you earn $400 in self employment you are required to file taxes. If you earn $600 or more with any individual site in a year, you should receive a 1099 from them. Even if you don't make $600, or don't get the form, you're still supposed to report any amount you earn. There are a few circumstances in which someone doesn't need to file taxes, and if you think you would be in one of those circumstance, you should speak to a certified tax consultant. Here's more information.
WHEN SHOULD I CASH OUT?
Always cash out as soon as possible, unless there is some sort of discount for saving up your points. You never know when you might get banned or a website might go away. Building up your points is just increasing how much you have to lose. The points are not yours until the money is in your possession.
HOW DO I TELL IF SOMETHING IS LEGIT OR A SCAM?
If a post is at least 48 hours old or made by a user with flair beside their name, it is likely legit. Known scams get removed pretty quickly. GPT sites are more likely to be a scam than any other type of site posted here. If you are worried about being scammed, I highly recommend sticking to the more well known sites in this FAQ and the Common Beermoney Sites List. You can also ask the poster for proof that they were paid by a site. If they can't prove they've been paid, they are only looking for referrals. I don't recommend signing up on sites when the user can't provide payment proof.
Here's a few things to look out for:
If they send you a check and ask you to return part of the money, it is a scam. The check will bounce, and you will be out the money. If an employer needs you to buy something, they will either buy it with a company card, or ask you to send a receipt for a refund. If they've already sent the check, you can give it to your local police department if you want. Just block all communication from them.
They pay a ridiculous amount of money or claim to pay "the most". Very few surveys pay more than $10/hour. You won't get more than about a penny to click links. Videos rarely pay more than a couple pennies. This is about the maximum, and it's very common to make half this rate or lower. If the site is claiming to pay so much more than anywhere else, it's a scam.
You get an offer or interview from a site or job you didn't apply for. Be especially cautious if they want to do the interview over google hangouts.
You are being asked to work for free as a "sample", or you are asked to install a program and wait to be accepted at a later date.
They have a high minimum cash out amount (above $25). Many sites have $1-10 minimums.
You are required to refer people to get paid.
You have to spend money to use the program. Even if it is an "optional" fee, be careful. This includes "training fees".
They don't disclose what type of work you're going to do. Sometimes job listings need to be vague for non-disclosure reasons, but you should always be able to get a general description of the work you will perform.
The website or post is full of grammar errors. An error here or there is bound to happen, but any legit site is going to put in effort to look good.
It's never been mentioned on this subreddit and/or you can't find reviews on google. Unless it's a completely new service, you should be able to find something about it somewhere.
Most importantly - does it feel too good to be true? Does it feel sketchy? Is there something that is just off, but you can't put your finger on it? Trust your instinct, and come here to find out if anyone else has heard of the site. Do a search first, and if you can't find anything, then make a post about it.
There are exceptions to most of these, but these are some things to be on the lookout for. Here are a few more safety tips. Also, never trust what a blog says. They are trying to get your referral link, so they will pretend the site is better than it is. If you see the site on /beermoney, look in the comments. If the poster is making outrageous claims, usually someone will leave a comment about it.
I WANT TO DO A GIVEAWAY FOR EVERYONE HERE. AM I ALLOWED TO DO THAT?
Are you only looking for just one person or a couple of people? Go to /slavelabour.
Are you looking to do commissions or sales? Go to /slavelabour
Is it more of an actual "job" and pays at least minimum wage? Go to /WorkOnline.
Are you paying people to signup on a website/app/etc? Go to /signupsforpay
Is it a survey? If it's a raffle, go to /SampleSize. If it's a guaranteed payout and pays decently, then it will be well received here. However, I don't recommend posting it on here. Unfortunately, there are a lot of scammers here who will try to do your survey multiple times. I suggest taking it to a different subreddit, or an alternative site such as mTurk.
Pay for referrals (make sure the site allows it first!).
Join a referral chain.
DO I NEED TO USE MY REAL INFO? (name/address/birth date)
Absolutely. You need to have correct info on the sites that pay you. Lying about anything can cause a whole lot of trouble, including getting your account banned.
BUT WON'T I GET SPAM MAIL?
From The Website Paying You?
It's highly unlikely that the sites that pay you will waste their money sending you spam mail. You may get something for verification, but that's about it.
From The Surveys?
It's very rare unless they are sending a payment, a product for testing, or they are requesting a follow-up. Most surveys won't even ask for this info, and on the rare occasion they do, it's typically to avoid repeat submissions.
From The Offers?
Sometimes. Most of them won't send you anything even if they say they will. Charities, credit cards, banks, and other similar services will spam you non-stop though.
In Your E-mail?
Absolutely. Make sure to use a separate e-mail for beermoney work, especially if you're going to be doing offers.
THIS SITE NEEDS A PHONE NUMBER FOR VERIFICATION. CAN YOU HELP ME?
CAN I USE A VPN, VPS, OR OTHER SOFTWARE TO PRETEND I'M FROM ANOTHER COUNTRY?
No. You can get banned for doing this. Usually they ban you right after you redeem your first reward. The location is restricted for a reason.
CAN I USE AN EMULATOR OR A VIRTUAL MACHINE?
No. Third party software is not allowed, and you can be banned for it.
IS BEERMONEY DEAD/DYING?
No. Don't listen to the trolls. Beermoney changes over time. Some methods are less lucrative now than in the past. Some are more lucrative. Some have less sites offering the service, and some have more. Passive methods are on the decline, but beermoney is more than just passive methods.
WHY ARE MY COMMENTS/POSTS BEING DOWNVOTED?
Every post will get a few downvotes. You can't please everyone. If you get down to -5 or lower, you might want to take a look at what you're typing. Beermoney users in general are more likely to upvote than to downvote, so either you're breaking a rule, spreading false info, or you're just being rude.

I will update the thread if any terms change.
Each user can probably only claim one tip.
Origin Story: A couple of people have asked who I am that I can afford to be generous with bitcoin. Maybe my username makes it a bit mysterious. I got hooked on bitcoin the first time I saw a mention of it on April 19, 2011. I did some GPU mining and eventually sold or gave away most of my coins in the form of Casascius coins that same year. When BFL announced ASIC miners, I spent all of my remaining coins on BFL ASICS and more or less lost everything. I currently hold fewer coins than anyone would guess. Regardless of my personal experience I am a technophile and I believe bitcoin will revolutionize the world (in time). I realize I'm not going to be rich when this happens, but it's enough to be a part of it - and I want others to join me on this exciting ride. I chose the "secret_bitcoin_login" username two years ago because I was alienating a lot of my regular reddit friends by ranting on and on about bitcoin - setting up this account helped me to containerize my thoughts and talk about bitcoin as much as I wanted to. I believe in strong and positive community, so I spend a lot of my time sharing and encouraging others. The $50 I am sharing today isn't "free money", it's part of my earned wages that I used to buy bitcoin from coinbase to share with you all.
"X-Box, Stop" I wouldn't call myself a gamer. I don't play too many games, or maybe I should say I don't like many games. I play a lot, but because of the sheer quantity I need to filter through, I must be frugal. I've been playing the same old Counter-Strike matches for the past ten years. That being said, I don't get many new games, and about 2 years ago I purchased my first XBox 360 from Craigslist. There was nothing strange about it, no ominous air of death or any sort of shady dealings. I met a broke kid and didn't even haggle with him. He was polite and the whole thing took place pretty quickly on his front porch. He lived in a pretty nice part of town, but probably didn't get hand-outs from his folks. It felt like a pretty standard trade, exactly the way you would want it to be. There was only one slight problem. The controller he gave me didn't work. I still got a pretty good deal on the console, but had to get a new one. I was in luck and got a pretty good price on a used one. (There's me being frugal again...) Since I saved a few bucks, I picked up a headset and a 3 month subscription to Xbox Live. Luckily, they were both also on sale! When I got the console, he included a copy of Modern Warfare 3, so I wanted to play that online. I was pretty excited to get my game on after unlocking the "Thrifty" achievement. I had only tried to turn the console on twice before I realized the controller was broken, so there wasn't much I could do without a new one. There were 2 profiles left on there, so I did I system restore or format or whatever that is called. Having erased everything, I created a new profile and made an avatar that looked like me. I didn't put much effort into it, though. After a few frustrating minutes of network configuration, I punched in the code on the prepaid card I purchased and was online for the first time. Finally, I was connected to a world of "current" gamers and excited to try the latest shooter! I wasn't up-to-date with modern games, but apparently my skills were. In Call of Duty, I was getting first place in nearly every match I played. It almost felt like I was cheating. Was I doing something different that no one had thought of? I started uploading videos and posting on forums. Some people would message me and invite me to join their "clan" and I felt like a mini-celebrity. One group even asked me "if it would be cool to use my strategy?" After two months, I had over 300 new "friends" just because I was good at a video game. It started to eat into my personal time as I turned down plans to game. I broke up with my girlfriend. I considered quitting my job and took a serious cutback on hours. To account for the loss in income, I monetizied my videos and had a surprisingly large influx in cashflow. I quit my job. I made more money by playing video games than I would make in any job my resume could land. In less than three months of owning an Xbox and playing this game, I had become a highly respected CoD player and a new game in the franchise was about to come out. Black Ops 2 was hitting stores in one week and I had the potential to rise up the leaderboards if I jumped on it the day it came out. I remember waiting in line at midnight. I remember running out of the mall, not starting the car, but certainly ripping the shrinkwrap with my teeth while driving home. The smell of the new disc was heavenly. I sped and should have been ticketed, but managed to pop that disc in my tray less than 15 minutes after the time printed on the receipt. There was a problem. My Gold subscription was up. No big deal. I punched in my debit card numbers and was online in a few minutes. After 4 days and 12 hours of total sleep, I had made it to the top 50 on the player leaderboard for Black Ops 2. I needed some rest and took a day off from playing. This was the first time I really fiddled around with the Xbox. I had been playing Call of Duty non-stop since I discovered my skillset was perfect for that game. I signed up for Netflix, watched some shows, then connected to my Facebook. I didn't really share my successful game-related YouTube channel with my friends, and a few people commented on the status update that said I linked to Xbox. After watching a movie, I checked Facebook again via XBox and saw I had 30+ friend requests. Someone had recognized me from the "linked to Xbox update" and now my personal Facebook was widely known to my YouTube channel. This was slightly annoying, so I went private. The problem wasn't really solved. I still got a lot of requests, so I made a Facebook profile for the YouTube page. After a few weeks and hitting the #10 spot on the Black Ops 2 leaderboards, I had more friends on that profile than my personal one that I've had for as many years... It was only a short matter of time before I was invited to a tournament and before long, I was on a cross-country flight to play for $10000 in Los Angeles. I was set to play in front of a crowd. People cheered when I walked to my station. I had been playing the damn game for 6 months of my life and I was somehow famous. An article released before the tournament called me a prodigy and titled the article something like "why I'll win." Then we started. And I failed. Miserably. I played the worst I ever had. Total loser, I placed dead last by a long shot. "I choked under pressure," they said in video commentaries. As quickly as I had risen to e-success, it was all gone. The fame. The fans. The viewers. The money. I didn't change anything about the way I released videos or played, but no one wanted to watch them anymore. I even ranked up to #7 on the leaderboards, but it didn't matter. The dream was over. I needed to get back to reality. I needed to get a new job and re-boot my life. I did so pretty quickly, and just like that, my short-lived life as a celebrity gamer was over. My new job was in the same field as my old, but at an office with a lot of younger folks. They would talk about Call of Duty and I wouldn't say a word. Little did they know, they had probably watched some of my videos before - unbeknownst one of the game's best players worked in an office down the hall. Or was I? The console that had brought me fame sat beneath my giant TV that I purchased with the ad money from Youtube gathering dust. I would occasionally use it for Netflix, but for the most part, I was done. I wasn't a gamer anymore. It was fun, but it was over. I even used a different account for Netflix so my old "friends" wouldn't message me and ask to play. Frankly, I never recovered from the failure at the tournament. Despite not playing anymore, it always bothered me how the huge disappointment in the tournament occurred. I didn't change my strategies for the tournament at all. In some ways, playing in the tournament felt unnatural. It wasn't the same as playing at home. Perhaps that's just it, I thought. I'm sure some gamers who smoke would do better at a tourney if they had a cigarette in their mouth. Despite this, I still should have done alright - but I didn't. I was #7 in the world but #40 in a tournament of forty people. Time went on as I led my normal life, but then, on November 22 of last year, things changed. It was a Friday, which I had off, and slept in to the sound of someone at my door. It was FedEx with a large package. I signed and accepted because sure why not. I was suspicious, but opened it to find a brand new XBox One and a copy of Call of Duty: Ghosts. It was from Amazon. I didn't order it. I checked all of my bank statements, my Paypal, my Amazon account and anything I could think would have proof of this purchase. Maybe I pre-ordered during my gaming fame? Nope. I couldn't find it anywhere. I'm not sure why I thought it would explain anything, but I booted up the 360 and logged into my former XBox Live account. There were a bunch of friend requests and messages from fans, but nothing seemed out of place. Then I received a system message. It asked me if I would like to link my account to my XBox One. This was a little strange, as I hadn't unboxed the thing yet. I powered down and set up the XBox One. I logged into my account. It asked me a similar message to the one I saw on 360, but seeing it here made more sense. I had my profile available on the new console and thought I would check out the new game. After all, it was Friday, I had nothing to do. My Call of Duty Elite profile carried over some stats from the two other games I played, but it looked a little suspicious. These results said I was the #4 player in the world for Black Ops 2. How could I have gone up the ladder while not playing for months? I checked my YouTube channel. It was full of new videos I didn't post, but in the vain of ones I would. Was someone using my account and keeping up with my gameplay? Even the gamertag in the videos was mine. It was my account. Was I Jekyll and Hyde? Was something broken in my brain? Did the loss of that tournament cause me to divide my own life in two different worlds? No. I am sane. This is absurd. Someone was using my XBox Live account and recording videos to my YouTube as if they were me. On top of that craziness, my bank account routing information had been changed. I was still getting a cut from ad revenue, but not nearly what I should have been. Some of the new videos have more views than my best ones. Not only did they take my money, they made it seem as if I was still getting some - just not much. The passwords were still the same, but my e-mail was no longer associated with either account. I hadn't even noticed that I wasn't getting billed for XBox live. I guess I had thought the service lapsed. However, my account was active and paid in full for the next 9 months. I contacted YouTube to discuss what happened and they suggested I find a lawyer. This whole situation was not what I expected to get myself into after starting the day with a random new game console showing up at my door for free. I guess it wasn't free. After some investigation, I found that the ad revenue from the videos I didn't know about was put into a savings account that I also didn't know about. It was my own account, associated with the checking account I normally use. I never set it up, but it's in my name at my bank. It has more money in it than I have ever seen or made in my entire life. Every day, there are deposits for thousands, sometimes over ten thousand dollars. The amounts in no way match the profit from YouTube. That's maybe one or two percent. At this point, I had no idea where the rest was coming from. During my game fame, I alienated a lot of my close friends and didn't have anyone to really confide in. This was all hitting me pretty hard. I was so confused. I broke down and started crying. Then the XBox One made a noise. It was a faint beep, but the tone was so consoling. It made me stop crying and I didn't know why. Nothing at all was making sense. I looked at the Kinect sitting in front of my TV and said to it, "XBox, what is going on?" It didn't do anything. Part of my was actually convinced it would answer. Suddenly, a new message notification appeared on screen. I checked to find a message with the sender field blank. It was a list of 50+ bank accounts and their web login credentials. I checked them and they seemed to match up with the amounts in my newly discovered savings, but I still had no idea where the money was coming from. I turned my head to look at the Kinect. "XBox, where is all this money coming from?" Again, nothing happened, but after a few moments I received another similar message. This was a listing of other websites and login credentials. The list included brokerage websites, bitcoin wallets, online casinos, poker sites, and even adult webcams. I logged into the accounts to see even more unaccounted for amounts in each of the respective accounts, including six-figure balance in one of the casinos. I felt like any minute the police were going to kick down my door and I still wouldn't understand how. Yet again, I turned to Kinect. "XBox, how?" I asked hesitantly. There was another brief pause and another new message. I didn't understand this one, though. It was garbled machine code and looked like the results of opening an image with a text editor. Going through the list of websites again, I found one that was certainly the most strange. It was an accountancy firm with the same last name as me. I logged in to that account and the website greeted me as the company's CEO. The inbox and outbox were both full of messages running the company. They were all signed with my name. I called the number that was listed in the site's "About Us" section to reach a soft-spoken, young secretary. I told her I was a doctor, needing to speak to the CEO about his mother. She asked his mother's name and I told her my mother's name. She told me to wait a moment and put me on hold. An incoming call notice sounded on my phone, but I ignored it. She returned to tell me he was unavailable and asked if I wanted to leave a message. I told her it was urgent and she read me his cell phone number. Rather, she read me my cell phone number. I thanked her and hung up. At this point, I was convinced that I was crazy. I looked at the Kinect as I had done before for answers, saying "XBox, am I crazy?" After the usual wait, a message popped up as the others had, only saying "No." Then what was it? Where was this secret life coming from? Who was doing this? Had this computer taken on a life of its own? It's the only thing that made sense. Grasping at my hair now, struggling for sanity, I looked into the Kinect like I was begging for mercy to whisper "Xbox, stop." None of those accounts or passwords work anymore, and all of the videos I didn't upload on my YouTube channel are gone. The money is no longer in my savings account and the bank tells me I never had one. I think I could have been rich, but I chose and preferred to be sane. I sold that XBox One from my front porch just how I bought the first one. I hope one of you frugal gamers out there got a good deal. It was like new, and only used for one day...
ABSTRACT The experience of buying and selling cryptocurrencies is as much of a barrier to the expansion of cryptocurrency trading as the relative novelty of the entire concept. While it is no doubt a more recognised and even well regarded market activity, with organisations such as the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) recently offering the world’s first official cryptocurrency futures contract, and several exchanges opening almost every other week, it is still very much a niche market position to engage in substantial buying and selling of cryptocurrencies. When compared with the market volumes for trading fiat or other stores of value like precious metals, the total cryptocurrency market capitalization of $471,511,748,724 is little more than pocket change. To put it in perspective, the total market capitalization of Bitcoin, which is by far the world’s most popular cryptocurrency is $166 billion, less than the $171 billion market cap of MasterCard, which is not even a fiat issuer. Clearly, despite the leaps and bounds that have been recorded in the growing success story of trading cryptocurrency on the open market, a substantial amount of work still remains to be done. Many reasons exist for the persistence of a gap in market adoption and participation, but perhaps one of the most ubiquitous and detrimental is the sheer difficulty of actually participating in the cryptocurrency market trading space. Due to a lack of regulation stemming from the decentralized nature of tokens, the market is crammed with a vast number of competing platforms and exchanges, all claiming to do certain things which many of them glaringly fail at. For example, the sheer amount of operational friction involved in carrying out a simple purchase transaction is enough to put off many first-time investors and market participants, especially those who do not understand the cryptocurrency ecosystem in detail and those who are used to the structure and order in a regular stock market. The speed of transactions on many platforms has often gained notoriety for creating severely dissatisfied users who had to wait for hours, days or even weeks for a single transaction to trundle its way through. In the midst of these delays, the dynamic market keeps changing. sometimes literally minute-by-minute, which severely compromises the investment position of the user and makes them unlikely to return as market participants again. Some users have even found out to their great personal cost, that while cryptocurrency tokens themselves cannot be hacked or duplicated, they can be stolen from digital wallets that do not have adequate security. So when executing cryptocurrency trades, it has been known to happen that the trading platforms or exchanges used suffered a severe security breach, sometimes with hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of user cryptocurrency being stolen. Amidst the unique crypto trading environment of unmatched optimism mixed with real risks and horror stories, the challenge is to create a solution that offers all users quick, easy and secure access into the cryptocurrency marketplace with zero fuss and very low risk. This solution would need to cater to both veteran participants in the ecosystem and new entrants into the market, giving both an equal chance to compete. The security on this platform would substantially preclude the possibility of a devastating failure that would compromise user assets and disrupt the user experience. Taking all these problems, challenges and needs into consideration, SLT has been developed as a trading platform offering users the power to buy and sell digital tokens to each other. Making full ue of the security and data processing advantages offered by the Blockchain, SLT proposes to revolutionize the experience of market participation in cryptocurrency trading by making it easily accessible to all types, classes and grades of users, safe and free of potential security failure points, and with a wide scope of application and uses within the ecosystem. The team behind SLT has several years of online work experience, and what unites all of them is a shared experience of the same operational problems present in terms of investing in the cryptocurrency market. SLT is the result of years of thought and research into how to adequately solve the problems once and for all and even create extra value for market participants into the bargain. INTRODUCTION Before going further in the paper, there are a few terms and concepts that need to be properly defined before the reader can fully appreciate the ideas and solutions that will be proposed later on. The first of these terms is blockchain. A blockchain, according to the standard definition is a network that is decentralized and distributed across all its nodes so that the network cannot be compromised by any single node. In plain English, what that means is that a chain of little bits of data called ‘blocks’ being created, updated and stored across several different locations in real-time is called a ‘blockchain’. The major difference between blockchain networks and regular centralized networks is that unlike the latter, blockchains do not have a “server” or a “headquarters” where isolated information exists in a silo. Blockchains rather use the entire network of nodes as their storage and processing capacity, and each node has a copy of the blockchain which is constantly in communication with the others, verifying transactions and comparing information to make sure the data across all of them is exactly the same. If any single node has data that does not match with that on the rest of the blockchain network, it is immediately isolated as a compromised node and the network automatically excludes it and keeps on functioning. What this means to the uninitiated is that blockchains are very secure, possessing no single location that can be hacked or compromised in any way, and not permitting any variation in data across network nodes. Data stored on a blockchain is thus practically immutable and unchangeable, which make it ideal for recording sensitive data like transaction records and medical records. The second term to be examined is fiat currency. A fiat currency is basically the money most people are used to, which is in either cash or electronic form. The distinguishing features of every fiat currency are that they always have a central issuer – usually a government or a central banking institution – and their use and relative value is constantly managed by these issuers. Unlike blockchain-based solutions, they are all built on centralized rather than distributed infrastructure, which makes them a constant target for hackers and fraudsters. They also contain identifying information unlike digital tokens. A third term that needs to be explored is cryptocurrency. A cryptocurrency is a representation of a digital asset, and it is also sometimes referred to as a token or a coin. Cryptocurrencies contain no information that can be used to personally identify their users, and as such they have gained popularity around the world for a variety of reasons as ‘anonymous currency’. In places like Zimbabwe, Venezuela and Greece for example, in response to crippling capital controls imposed by the government which severely limited the amount of money allowed to be taken out of the country, a huge number of people turned to Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies as an undetectable means of transferring their wealth abroad. A vast number of cryptocurrencies exist currently, ranging from the ubiquitous Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) to a basket of currencies including Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), Dash (DASH), Monero (XMR), Lisk (LSK), TRON (TRX), ICON (ICX), Stratis (STRAT), Zcash (ZEC), Nano (XRB), Steem (STEEM), Bytecoin (BCN), and Populous (PPT), amongst others. For the purposes of this paper, the cryptocurrency that will be focused on is SLT, which is the native currency of the SLT platform. Another concept that needs to be defined is the smart contract. A smart contract is a method of exchanging value between two or more parties using the blockchain as a tool for validation and escrow. Using a smart contract, a seller and a buyer involved in a peer-to-peer transaction do not need to have a middleman interceding between them to ensure that the right exchange is made at the right time. Rather, a set of conditions, instructions and parameters is coded into the blockchain, and the buyer deposits their cryptocurrency into a safe wallet under the care of the smart contract protocol. Once the buyer confirms that they have received the requested value from the seller and it is acceptable to them, the smart contract automatically releases the payment to the seller. Doing business by smart contract is an idea that started off as a novelty and is rapidly taking off, as it removes the burden of validation from both parties involved in a transaction and saves them the cost of a human middleman or bank charges involved in actual escrow transactions. Most smart contracts nowadays are built on the Ethereum blockchain, which is especially optimised to aid peer-to-peer transactions. The final term that will be defined is cryptocurrency exchange. Also often referred to as “exchanges”, these are institutions that enable users to exchange cryptocurrencies for other cryptocurrencies and fiat currencies. In effect, they serve as intermediaries between cryptocurrency buyers and sellers, connecting demand with supply and enabling buyers to make their desired purchases using cryptos or fiats of their choice, according to which ones are supported by the individual exchange. In the world of buying and selling cryptocurrencies, exchanges are the engines of the industry, in a similar way to how banks are the drivers of offline economies. The level of speed and security offered by a cryptocurrency exchange is often the difference between a profitable transaction and an unqualified loss. In a market as dynamic as cryptocurrency trading, delays of even a few minutes can have dramatic results, as big hitters like Bitcoin have been known to lose as much as 50% of their value in just a few hours. In order for cryptocurrency trading to be able to go truly mainstream, it is imperative that an exchange solution will be created that enables users and investors to move seamlessly through the market and execute transactions instantaneously, as is obtainable in fiat currency markets. PROBLEM STATEMENT Presently, cryptocurrency trading is not suffering from a lack of interest, but there is a considerable infrastructural barrier to entry into the market. The available platforms generally cannot deal with the sheer volume of transactions and the required speed of processing transactions, causing many existing and potential investors to become frustrated and lose interest in the market. The three major problems facing the cryptocurrency buying and selling space can be itemized and broken down as follows: - Lack of speed: In the space of a few minutes, it is not unheard of for cryptocurrencies to gain as much as 30% on the market. As with any other type of dynamic market trading activity, the ability to predict and react to quick-fire changes is key to the profitability of the trading operation. When market participants are not able to get their purchase and selling orders processed in a manner that matches the dynamism of the marketplace they operate in, this usually results in losses and a resultant loss of appetite for involvement in that market space. - Security breaches: Trading platforms and cryptocurrency exchanges have been the targets of sustained and regular attacks from hackers, fraudsters and a number of other undesirable elements. In a few high profile cases, they have actually been successful, eventually making away with hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of client cryptocurrency funds and leaving both platform and customer financially wrecked. A few customers who have managed to get past the buying and selling process with no incident have had the misfortune of using exchanges without adequate cybersecurity measures in place, and this has led to their cryptocurrency wallets being hacked, and millions of dollars’ worth of anonymous, untraceable coins being stolen. These stories also receive a substantial amount of media airplay, which feeds into an existing narrative of cryptocurrency being some sort of scam, and this further alienates potential investors and participants. - Transaction fees: Several platforms have delivered unpleasant surprises to their users in the form of excessive transaction fees. Perhaps as a result of the lack of volume resulting from their poor trading infrastructure and bad liquidity position, a number of cryptocurrency trading platforms try to make up for the revenue lost to poor transaction volumes by charging high transaction fees. In essence, the idea is that instead of fixing the problems leading to slow transactions and the resultant low transaction volumes, users would simply be charged more to make up for the revenue shortfall. This means that investors lose both ways, both to the low speed transaction execution and poor security offered by most existing cryptocurrency trading platforms, and high transaction fees for the few trades that do manage to go through. SLT FRAMEWORK Using these problems as an existential barometer, SLT has created a trading platform that is focused on the needs of its users before anyone else. The platform focuses on revolutionizing transaction speeds and achieving instantaneous execution by making use of blockchain processing instead of centralized processing. This solution will also exponentially improve upon the existing security profiles of competing platforms because it is practically impossible to hack a blockchain. Use of the SLT token will also eventually reduce transaction fee and speed up transactions using blockchain technology. Platform Goals The overall aim of SLT is to create a fast, simple, safe and clearly defined platform that everyone can understand without hidden intentions and costs. The platform also aims to emulate the very operational logic of the blockchain in its operations by catering to a decentralized market. Instead of appealing to only a fraction of the available global market, SLT will allow anyone to have access to the platform, and it ensure that equal chances are given to all members to earn. The final aim of SLT is to be able to deliver on the promise of instant payments and withdrawals using blockchain technology. Future Expansion Plans The launch of the SLT token is a part of a strategy that will be instituted to reduce transaction fees for users and eventually to speed up transactions. A key part of this strategy is the opening of the SLT cryptocurrency exchange. Combining these two solutions, it is the hope that users who currently face problems with opening different wallets and with withdrawing money they earn can find a quick and easy resolution to these issues. The platform will have a wallet exchanger and a digital asset exchanger in one place for the first time, giving users as much flexibility as they need to access and convert their money rapidly so as to be able to keep up with the dynamics and vagaries of the cryptocurrency trading market. Eventually, it is expected that users will even have the opportunity to make payments and withdraw money using the SLT Card, which will be integrated with major existing fiat providers to give maximum flexibility across crypto and fiat channels to SLT platform users. Pre ICO – 1 million 1st Round - 1 million 2nd Round - 3 million Price in Pre ICO= 0.10$ Price in 1.round =0.30$ Price in 2.round =0.50$ Action Plan Adding SLT on other exchanges Digital asset Exchanger ( multi-cryptocurrency exchange) Listing on CoinMarketCap Wallet exchanger Debit Card and adding other cards that will allow buying and withdrawals Mobile app available for iOS and Android Referral bonuses in ICO period: 5% 5% Bonus from each purchase made from your referral Roadmap December 2017 Completion of platform conceptualization and ideation processes, followed by the commencement of preliminary development, design and integration work. March 2018 Pre-ICO begins: At this stage, investors will be able to buy SLT tokens at a special price of $0.10, which gives them a first-mover advantage over later investors during the ICO. ICO commences: The ICO will hold in two stages, giving investors the opportunity to purchase SLT tokens at $0.30 and $0.50 respectively, following a price-rise caused by the pre-ICO demand. March 2018 ICO ends: Investors will no longer be able to purchase SLT tokens directly from the ICO platform, but the tokens may be available from third party platforms like cryptocurrency exchanges. 2018 (all-year) Development and integration of Digital asset Exchanger ( multi-cryptocurrency exchange) and Wallet exchanger, develop breakthrough blockchain technologies Launch of mobile app for iOS and Android 2019 The full SLT platform will be launched offering the complete range of proposed functionalities after a year of development and integration. Later that year, the SLT card will also be launched, giving users extra flexibility across various fiat and cryptocurrency exchange mediums. CONCLUSION SLT is the long-awaited platform that will permanently change how casual users and seasoned investment veterans interact with the cryptocurrency trading market. The important ways in which SLT will revolutionize the cryptocurrency trading space are as follows: The platform will severely cut down on time lost due to transaction delays and slow execution Making use of the multifunctionality of a wallet exchanger and a digital asset exchanger in the same place, the SLT platform will exponentially increase the speed with which users may access their funds and convert them into the desired format of their choice SLT will make use of blockchain technology to substantially increase the speed of transaction processing. Currently, many competing platforms make use of silo processing, which is heavily limited by available physical infrastructure. SLT embraces the blockchain at an elemental level, applying the principle of group processing to free up what has hitherto been an operational bottleneck. The use of blockchain technology as the basis of the platform will increase its security profile and make it an exceptionally difficult target for hackers, thieves and fraudsters. The SLT token will provide an quick and easy platform for cryptocurrency trading for users who do not want to deal with the delays involved in opening and accessing different wallets. Users of SLT tokens will experience substantially reduced transaction fees in addition to enhanced transaction speed Eventually, the launch of the SLT Card will take the concept beyond the point that the entire industry is at right now. This card will be used both as a means of paying in and withdrawing money from the platform, and its activation with a major real-world fiat provider will give users a totally unprecedented level of inter-connectedness between cryptocurrency coins and fiat. DISCLAIMERS The SLT service and the SLT platform are provided strictly on an “as available” and "as is" basis. No assurances or representations of any type, direct or otherwise, are made regarding the operation of the service or the content, information, materials, or products displayed on the website. No express or implied representations or warranties regarding the SLT service and website, or the products or services provided therein are made. Therefore, any implied warranties of SLT merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, and non-infringement are expressly disclaimed and excluded. In addition, we make no representation that the operation of our service will be uninterrupted or error free, and we will not be liable for the consequences of any interruptions or errors be they direct, secondary, related, penal, or consequential. SLT, its officers, representatives, employees, managers, and salespersons, shall not in any way hold any liability for any loss/damages (direct or indirect) rising out of or in connection with your use of or your inability to use the SLT service and website, even if we have been duly advised of the possibility of such damages. SLT is not an investment. There is no guarantee that the SLT you purchase will increase in value and/or provide any return. SLT does not confer exclusive ownership or arbitrary right to control. Possession of SLT tokens does not grant the holder exclusive ownership or sole equity in the SLT platform as a whole. No one individual has exclusive rights or power over the SLT platform. The purchaser’s SLT can only be accessed with login credentials selected by the purchaser. The loss of these credentials will result in the loss of SLT. To prevent such a situation, it is strongly recommended that the holder should safely store credentials in one or more backup locations that are geographically separated from the working location, and are accessible in the event of an emergency. As they grow in popularity and application, Blockchain technologies have also become subject to regulatory attention and action by government and financial industry organisations around the world. The functioning of the SLT platform and SLT tokens could thus be impacted by any regulatory inquiries or actions, including but not limited to restrictions on the use or possession of digital tokens like SLT, which could impede or limit the development of the SLT platform. Following the token sale and the development of the initial version of the SLT platform, it is possible that blockchain-based platforms could be established, which operate using same open source code and open source protocol underlying the SLT platform. The SLT platform may have to compete with these alternative platforms, which could potentially negatively impact the performance of the SLT platform and SLT. It is possible that the SLT platform will not be used by large numbers of individuals, and that there will be limited public interest in the creation and development of distributed applications. Such a lack of interest could impact the development of the SLT platform and therefore the potential uses or value of SLT. The SLT platform is presently under development and may undergo significant changes before its full release. Any expectations regarding the form and functionality of SLT or the SLT platform held by the purchaser may not be met upon release, for any number of reasons including a change in the design and implementation plans and execution of the SLT platform. Hackers or other groups or organizations may attempt to interfere with the SLT platform or the availability of SLT in any number of ways, including without limitation denial of service attacks, Sybil attacks, spoofing, smurfing, malware attacks, or consensus-based attacks. The SLT platform consists of software that is based on open-source software. There is a risk that the SLT team, or other third parties may intentionally or unintentionally introduce weaknesses or bugs into the core infrastructural elements of the SLT platform, interfering with the use of or causing the loss of SLT and/or SLT. Advances in cryptography, or technical advances such as the development of quantum computers, could present risks to crypto currencies and the SLT platform, which could result in the theft or loss of SLT and/or SLT. While SLT should not be viewed as an investment, it may return value over time. That value may be limited if the SLT platform lacks use and adoption. If this becomes the case, there may be few or no profits to draw from, or even a loss of your initial investment. It is possible that the SLT platform malfunctions in an unfavorable way, including but not limited to one that results in the loss of information or data. Crypto-currency is a relatively new and untested technology. In addition to the risks set forth here, there are risks that the SLT team cannot anticipate. Risks may further materialize as unanticipated combinations or variations of the risks set forth here.

''' Their mobile app sucks a bag of dicks, half the time it doesnt log in correctly. I have watch addresses setup and almost shit myself when I checked this morning and blockchain.info told me I had a balance of ZERO, yet still listed every address I have on watch. Checked the addresses elsewhere and confirmed that they still do indeed have balances. I then tried to login on my PC and once again blockchain.info shits the bed when I try and enter the SMS code they sent me. My question to them is why after all these years does your mobile app suck so much? Seriously, there are amateur developers with literally 1/1000th of the funding you have that can build a stable app. Not to mention the fact that for people 'new' to bitcoin, blockchain.info comes up as the initial result in google most of the time. Tl;Dr - Blockchain.info's service is SHIT, and could serve to alienate people who are new to bitcoin. /rant Edit: Can anyone recommend a good watch address app for android?
