If you've been hanging around social media for any extended period of time, you know about the power that Reddit holds on the internet. It's self proclaimed the "front page of the internet" with communities called subreddits on numerous topics. While it's potentially a great community builder and can bring enormous traffic to content, it's not without its faults.RSS Feed
Well, there's a blockchain social media alternative on the rise. It utilizes a similar interface as Reddit with upvotes and downvotes and communities. But the big difference with this relatively new social media platform is that you can actually earn by posting original content, getting upvotes on your posts, and participating in the community.
This blockchain powered social media platform with potential cryptocurrency rewards is called Uptrennd (yes, with two N's!) Their currency is the 1UP token, which can be traded for Ethereum. It's fairly easy to earn and many confirmed payouts have been reported. The site has a very friendly and vibrant community. Currently, there's only one catch: everything you post has to be related to blockchain and crypto.
Uptrennd does plan to expand into other topics later. The reason they are so focused on only crypto and blockchain at the moment is twofold. Firstly, it's sort of obvious that a social network that rewards in cryptocurrency would attract those interested in those topics. But the second and more important point is that Uptrennd is focused on having a positive, vibrant, engaged and spam-free environment no matter what the topic.
Obviously, Uptrennd has a fairly narrow focus at the time being. But, even if it stays strictly focused, that's likely just fine. I've enjoyed the platform so far and plan to become far more engaged in the near future. If you have any interest at all in blockchain or crypto, I highly recommend checking it out!
