ArticleX ICO Review: Enabling The Monetization Of Blogging

.

The internet is full of blogs. Travel, cooking, history, bonsai care, dog grooming, magic, etc. You can find a blog about anything and everything out on the wild web.

People write millions of words every day, uploading content to their chosen blogging site for fun, personal satisfaction, or in some cases, business.

The key issue with blogging is that, despite the time and effort invested, a relatively minor number of people actually make money out of it. The vast majority must resign to simply see their blog posted on a site and hope others will find it and read it.

ArticleX is a new ICO that comes in with a brave idea: to enable the monetization of content for avid bloggers, and give community users the chance to find and buy the content they want to read.

ArticleX: good content, from mind to blockchain

The ArticleX platform caters for two distinct sides. Publishers can upload their content and receive payment relative to traffic, while visitors can use tokens to purchase some of that content, sign up to premium blogs, and other aspects. The platform will enable publishers to create their own blogging sites, and earn revenue through a number of channels:

  • ADs network
  • Private ADs sale
  • Sell Box
  • Premium blog subscription
  • Donation box
  • Sharing fund

The ArticleX platform also includes an integrated wallet and exchange so users can manage their currencies.

Social media presence and digital footprint

Here are the numbers for ArticleX at the time of writing (early May 2018).

  • Twitter – 26k followers
  • Facebook – 16k followers
  • Telegram – 33k followers

This ICO has a significant presence on social media at this point, which gives it a distinct advantage.

Competition

There are a number of other ICOs that offer content monetization capabilities. iShook, Publica, and Rakugo, to name but a few.

ArticleX will enter a somewhat (but not overly) crowded market, which means competition will be tough.

This ICO does include a good number of monetization capabilities through ads and premium subscription, however, which make give it a more competitive edge.

Consult the Articlex Whitepaper for more information about the platform, additional
features and services, etc.

Conclusion

ArticleX offers a good alternative for bloggers, fostering the creation of good content through its platform.

The monetization incentive is key, so avid bloggers and publishers can, at last, see a return on their investment.

Other publishing platforms already exist, so it remains to be seen whether or not ArticleX survives in the long run.
