Today's conversation is with Josef Marc. Josef is the CEO and co-founder of Publica. Publica is probably one of my favourite blockchain concepts (am planning to try it out soon!). That is because it includes all the areas of my interests all in one place: writing and self publishing, blockchain, ICOs, crypto and reading. How cool is that? In this episode we speak about Josef's journey and the Publica platform. You will get the details of what is it and how it works and why should you try it out whether you are an author or simply love reading books.
Today I speak to Ofir Beigel. Ofir is from Israel and he is the founder of 99 Bitcoins. Since he started 99 Bitcoins in 2013 it has grown immensely and today we are helping more than 1.4 million new Bitcoiners each month.
Back story Initially, this was a Facebook live that I did in summer 2017. This is my conversation with Eric Vance Walton. Eric is a fiction author. Like many authors he was happy to when Amazon came along with its Kindle Direct Publishing program and he took the self-publishing route. At first Eric's biggest best social media was Facebook where he had set up his author page. Then, as it always happens Facebook decided to change its algorithm yet again and as a result Eric was forced to pay $20 for each post on the page so those who had liked the page would be able to see it. Eventually, he discovered Steemit and it became his primary social media platform. Eric moved part of his Facebook audience to Steemit and that help him jumpstart his Steemit journey. Eric feels that on Steemit the engagement is better and people care about each other. For him it took 2 months to gain traction and get noticed there. Eric used Steemit as a method of crowdfunding his book. Basically, post payouts paid for the book production. work really hard at building your audience first On understanding crypto The easiest way to understand was to make transactions. Learn the mechanics of getting a bitcoin wallet and signing up for an exchange. Once you do couple transactions it becomes as easy as breathing. Most people don’t believe it’s real until they convert it into fiat currency - then it all sinks in. You will learn how much freedom crypto provides. On growing your audience on Steemit Just create good content and engage with other users. Leave thoughtful comments. Play to your strengths. Don’t make your post too long - max 1200 words.
