Contribution Points Scheme

Columnists writing for Blockchain News can now get crypto rewards for content that they contribute under the Contribution Points Scheme. You, as one of our valued columnists, will have the chance to choose which articles you want to be included into the scheme. Awards will be given in the form of Contribution Points ("CP") which will be converted into cryptocurrencies upon withdrawal.

How to participate:

Upon submitting each article, please remember to click the checkbox to include articles in the Contribution Points Scheme (as shown in the screencap below)

How to get rewards:

You will be awarded with CP when completing each of the following:

  • 100 CP for publishing a post and Upon Conditions Listed **
  • 300 CP for being selected as a Featured Article
  • 150 CP Social Media Promotions (over 3 social media platforms – maximum of 50 CP for each social media platform). Users can earn CP by getting people to like and share their content on social media!

    For the breakdown of how CP will be awarded in each social media platform, please refer to the table below:
    Twitter LinkedIn Facebook
    Likes (20 CP) >= 20 likes >= 40 likes >= 15 likes
    Shares (30 CP) >= 8 shares >= 5 shares >= 5 shares
    For example, for Twitter, the user must first share the official Blockchain News post and then get at least 20 or more likes to get 20 CP from the Likes category and at least 8 or more shares originating from the official post to get the 30 CP from the Shares category. If both categories are achieved, the post will get the maximum 50 CP for Twitter.

    Writers will be responsible for notifying Blockchain News once they have met the requirements for earning CP for social media. They should provide evidence (i.e., screencaps showing number of likes and shares) to the Blockchain.News via email to claim CP for social media.
