Online Content Monetization (Under Revision)

1. Introduction

With the computer and the Internet you can create and post your contents almost for free and publicly. Nowadays you can monetize your contents and gain passive incomes. Many have regard this as a full time job but it is very flexible. It can be a part time job or just a hobby that can generate incomes. More importantly, it's almost effortless to apply the simple ones.

2. How Monetization Works

It all depends on the method but overall is either the audience pays you or 3rd parties pays you.

3. Method

3.1 Donation

This method in my opinion is the simplest way and everybody knows. You can ask for donations through:
  • Contact, bank account, etc information (old way).
  • Links such as paypal and cryptocurrency address link.
  • QR code which is the link method version preferred for mobile audiences.
  • Advance interfaces such as buttons.

3.3 Advertisement

3.3.1 Own Advertisement

If you can make your own contents then you can make your own advertisement. Make your own banner or just simply manually write an advertisement on an empty space. Ofcourse, you need your own business to do this. Very simple advertisement examples: subscribe to my Youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/user/PurnamaABC, selling second hand stuffs, or even selling lemonade near your house.

3.3.2 Endorsement

Also a type of making your own advertisement but not entirely your own business. Most of the time you endorse someone else's business and you receive commission. For example:

3.3.3 3rd Party Advertisement

Rent some of your space to 3rd parties. The most popular one today is Goodle Adsense.

3.4 Airtime

Recently, applications came out that allows you to monetize your platform where you earn coins for the amount of time your audience viewing your contents. Also, they recently support monetization of your social media where you earn coins for audience viewing your social media post, profile, etc. Common supported social media and platforms are Bittube, Youtube, Twitch, Facebook, Twitter, and Reddit. For these social media's all you have to do is to link your profile while for your own, put special codes on your site. Below are list of applications:

3.5 Mining

You can ask or force your audience to mine cryptocurrency for you since mining now is possible on Javascript. By default, the audience browser runs Javascript automatically. Therefore, they will mine for you when they open your contents. Some people may consider this unethical because the mining is without their permission. The solution is asking for their permission to mine. If you would like to enforce, you can kick them out if they don't agree. A more leisure way is to immediately tell them that mining is active and tell them that they may leave if they don't agree. I provide a button at the top if they want to stop mining or mine even more, they have the freedom. For example: https://www.coinimp.com/invite/8c923bdd-07f9-4051-a110-bf3db7fb8d07.

Try Gambling For Free on Crypto Gambling Sites (Draft in Revision)

0. Quick Statements

  • To gamble in casinos have many restrictions for most people, online gambling sites are usually not cheap, but for crypto sites you can start for free and may continue being free.
  • The sites usually give you free coins to try gambling.
  • They also usually giveaway free coins daily.
  • If you are not allow to gamble, personally is no problem for as long as you don't deposit your money. Just use the money that they gave you. In my opinion, gambling is waging your own money to gain more where you can risk of losing everything. It's fine if you are waging free money right?
  • Sure getting quick money almost always just a dream but why not try the games and enjoy instead of thinking about profits.

1. Simple Multipliers

Just as the heading said, wager some coins to be multiplied by 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, etc. Here are some list:


2. Dice, Crash, Blackjack, Roulete

My Inspiration About The Secret of Financial Intelligence

0. Quick Tips: Study Financial Statement

  • Educate yourself now because no matter how much you have now, the risk is always there.
  • Generate income efficiently / efficiency index = income ÷ work time & effort.
  • Conserve / control your expenses / cure your overspending / stop wasting money.
  • Avoid as much liabilities as possible / any possessions that generates more expenses. 
  • Focus on assets / passive incomes are best / put your money to work / invest well.
  • Always aim for long term freedom and independence, it's better to enjoy what you do.
  • Overall, learn cash flow.
At the very general, there are three levels of people. For me, I study in them in this order: poor > middle class > rich.
  1. Learn why people are poor and find ways to get out of poverty.
  2. Learn how the poor can become middle class but why middle class cannot become rich.
  3. Learn the rules that distinguishes between the rich and the middle class plus the poor.

1. Inspiration

I recommend watching in the following order:

I recommend to watch this one for basic understanding and you may skip the rest for later.

The following are videos about Garret Gunderson and Robert Kiyosaki distiguishing between poor, middle class, and rich.



2. Overview

A. Income

  • The most popular way to earn is to work for someone or become an employee and on the other side is to do your own business.
  • No matter whether you are an employee, employer, or freelance, what really matter is the work efficiency. The greater the income and the lower time & effort to generate that income the greater the efficiency.

B. Expense

  • The basic of all is to stop wasting. Buy what you need and manage your desires in other words manage your expenses.
  • The most occurring financial problem is not the lack of income but mismanaged and uncontrolled expense.

C. Investing

Investing is putting your money to work without you making effort to gain higher return with concrete planning.

3. The Poor

A. Income

  • Worst Case: work hard gain little, waste of energy and time. Gain is not only wealth. If you gain little wealth but gain experience, knowledge, skills, strength, etc, it may still be worth it.

B. Expense

  • Worst Case: expense = income and even worse, expense > income. Example of overspending is working very hard and use them all for luxuries and pleasures such as going to restaurants, buying services, especially something that you don't really need.

C. Investment

Not investing is a waste, but even worse is not considering and learning about investing. The poor definitely don't invest.

4. The Middle Class

A. Income

  • Increase your income to reach middle class.
  • Common limit: work harder to gain more. Answer these questions to see whether you are in the right track. Are you happy? Are you satisfied? Did you get to invest your income? Did you get to enjoy your income? Did you gain something worthy? Do you pay heavy taxes? What did you sacrifice? What did you gain? How long will you stay like this?

B. Expense

  • Common: Expense < income. It's common knowledge to not spend more than you have. You will reach lower middle class if you learn how to manage your expenses.
  • To reach or maintain upper middle class, start noting your incomes and expenses. At least calculate how much you spent and how much you have every week. For me, I record every detail of income and expenses, such as noting how much I spent for lunch and dinner, my groceries, even as detailed as your banking admin fee and transfer fee, also your charities and gifts, even as little as how much you spent to buy a piece of candy.

C. Investment

Below are investment products that are popular among middle class:
  • Government bond ($100 minimum): the safest because it is insured by the law but if you trust your currency and your government. If you love your country and want to contribute, then consider to invest in this.
  • Time deposit ($1000 minimum): very safe if you trust in your currency and banks or institutions but expensive.
  • Mutual fund ($1 - $10 minimum): you can start small, the risk depends on the type of mutual fund which ranges from safe to dangerous, but again if you trust in your currency.
  • Stock market: risky but high return. Without knowledge, investing in the stock market is the same as gambling.
  • Staking: in cryptocurrency, you stake to run the network, the more you stake the more you get, but only if you trust in the cryptocurrency.
  • Angel investing: invest directly in a company, business, etc, and earn equity meaning that you always receive percentage of their profits. Hard to find but one of the best.
Common trap: most of the time, investing on the products above does not make you rich. It only helps you to save your wealth and earn pocket money. Sometimes it is bad, for example a certificate of deposit (CFD) gave you an interest of 1% a year but inflation rate is 5% yearly. It means you are still losing money and your money is locked for a long time. The most extreme case is during financial crisis. Robert Kiyosaki always says, why would you save money (referring to fiat currency) when the government is printing more than you can save? The problem is the lack of education.

D. Liabilities

Most middle class mistook liabilities as assets. For example:
  • Your car is a liability because you need to feed fuels and regularly perform maintenance in other words, generate expenses.
  • The same goes for your house that it is a liability because you need to pay for electricity, water, and other maintenance.
  • Even people and other living thing can become liabilities. 
    • Pets are liabilities because you need to provide food, water, and care.
    • Having children is initially a liability because you need to fully take care of them and currently education is the highest expense.
    • Parents in old age, commonly they become liability because you need to take care of them (unless you are evil).
    • Friends that uses you are liabilities.

This is how far I have climbed, beyond this is the realm of the rich.

5. The Rich

As I said, I haven't reach this stage yet. What I wrote currently is what I heard and I'm fighting to reach this stage. Once I reach this stage, I will add my experiences.

A. Assets

  • Best Case: work smart and you are free to choose how hard you work. Work little and gain lots but you may work harder to gain even more. 
  • Asset is the ultimate income and the ultimate asset is passive income where you don't have to work anymore to gain income. The rich focuses on the asset column. Warren Buffet said that if you don't know how to make money while sleeping, you will forever have to work.

B. Liabilities

  • The rich are able to distinguish between assets and liabilities. 
  • Asset generates income while liabilities generates expenses.
  • Continuing from previous middle class section, a car can become an asset if it generates higher income than the expenses such as being a taxi driver, renting your car, and necessary to use your car for business. The same goes for houses, if you rent your house, then it is an asset.
  • Even people and other living thing can become assets. 
    • Pets can be an asset if their long term value is more such as helps you to relieve your stress, motivates you, or they themselves directly generate income such being a guard dog, K9, win pet competitions, entertainment industry, etc. 
    • Children will become your greatest asset when they become successful and takes care of you in the future.
    • Parents are initially asset because they are the one that takes care of you (unless they are evil).
    • Friends that benefits you are assets.

C. Investment

The Masters knows what to invest, when to invest, and when to exit. To become a Master requires lots of education and experience. The rich becomes rich by investing all or beyond the amount of wealth that they have and gain much larger returns.

D. Business

Business is a generally known term to create an asset. Starting a business is very difficult but once it's matured, money will flow to you without doing anything. For example, you have a company and all you need to do is watch over your employees working for the company. Example popular business is building real estates and renting them, building factory to mass produce products, building a restaurant and sell your cuisines, buying cars and rent them, etc. For a business to grow big, you must invest all your wealth and most of the time wealth that is beyond what you have.

E. Debt / Loan

What is wealth that is beyond your amount? Debt / Loan. The poor drown in debt, the middle class free themselves from debt, while the rich exploits debt. If you can't handle what the rich does that is discipline in focusing your assets first (like overspending in luxuries and pleasures), then get out of debt and stay middle class or debt will eat you alive and you will become poor.

F. Cash Flow

The rich masters the six key words of financial statement: (1) income, (2) expense, (3) asset, (4) liabilitiy, (5) cash, (6) flow. Finally, after mastering every other words, the rich masters cash flow.

6. My Controversial View of Wealth

  • Purchasing power is the ability to get your desires.
  • Your real necessities are food, water, health, etc.
  • Money is a language to express value and currency is the tool.
  • That tool is only valuable if it can purchase.
  • That currency in your bank is worthless until it is purchased.
  • Most currencies are only papers, when the currency collapses, they become as useless as papers. Why would you work for currency if the government prints currency faster than all of you can earn?
  • The true wealth is not the amount of Dollar, Euro, Pound, Yen, Bitcoin, Gold. They are only language to express your values. The true wealth is what you purchased using them.
  • Would you prefer to be stuck in world with unlimited gold without food and water or to be stuck in world with unlimited food and water without gold?

My Full Dedication to Anonymity, Borderless, Decentralization, Privacy, Uncensorship, ETC on the network.

1. Cause Timeline


a. Censorship: Freedom of Consumption Issue

 I started my highschool live in Indonesia. In the 2005s, the Internet is still an open place where you can access anything you want. However, Indonesia started to censor websites when porn becomes viral. That was alright, however they went further and went too far and censored:
  • Most manga sites
  • Most anime sites
  • Most online games
  • Most mature movies
  • Reddit
  • NSFW
  • Some social medias
There's also a time when I worked in a company. Although I was given my own computer, I was restricted to do anything including install my own software, programming, and retrieve data on USB which I don't like working like that.

Other example countries that imposes restrictions are China, North Korea, and maybe most in middle east. China is known for its great firewall where its citizens are restricted to most United States (US) social medias. In North Korea, you know, you can do anything without the permission of the Supreme Leader. 

b. Tracking: Privacy Issue


I began to realize the value of privacy when I started studying abroad. In Indonesia, there wasn't anything much about monitoring, even people are free to use peer to peer network like torrent. When I started abroad, I was surprise that the police can arrest you for downloading pirated movies and softwares, and using illegal applications. Sure, I understand about uploading, but downloading I disagree, because I may download something illegal without my knowledge and to be arrested because that. Even if it's accidental and the authorities would let me go, it's a very big waste of time going through the process. Though, I still respect them more because they leave The Internet open.

There's also about the Snowden case where I was shocked the CIA was intruding in our privacy. Although, the reason is to prevent crime, but there's still a bridge that should not be crossed, because they are still humans where they can abuse and monopolize their power. While the Internet is the public network like the streets, our houses are private networks that should not be breached.

c. Termination: Freedom of Speech and Expression Issue


It was here that I started my dedication. I decided to upload my Youtube videos to Dailymotion, Vimeo, Veoh, and Liveleak. I decided to attempt because there are articles about importing Youtube videos to Dailymotion, and made me interested. I read these video platforms terms and services and found that there's nothing about importing my Youtube videos to these sites. The videos on my Youtube had no problem over a month so I decided to import them.
  • In few hours, liveleak terminated my account, I understand a bit maybe that my videos are out of scope but they never gave me a notification, not even an email
  • However in few days, I was surprise that Vimeo automatic filter terminated my account and what pissed me off is that they won't check and won't even tell me the reason of why it was terminated.
  • Few days later and it happened at night when I was sleeping that Veoh terminated my account because my video was junk and spam, this really hurt my feeling and proof to be the last straw. At Youtube, some gave a few likes and commented a thanks on these videos.
  • A Chinese friend of mine had just had his QQ (social media like Facebook and Twitter) terminated by automatic filter. Just like any other teenager, he never post anything radical, just fun and dump things. The admins won't even check the issue and told him to never contact them again. He has photos, post, and videos of more than 12 years of his life and they won't even return those data to him. This is just like losing 12 years of your memories.
  • Finally, my Daily Motion account was permanently terminated without any chance of appealling.

2. Opinion

The Internet was designed as a public network like the streets and the rest of the outside world where we can freely travel. However, authorities have caught up to the technology and imposed restrictions to the Internet. It is like when foreigners travels to North Korea where they are constantly accompanied by enforcers telling where they are allowed to go and where they are not allowed to go everytime. So there are two types of channel to the Internet, (1) a direct channel where we have no enforcers, (2) an indirect channel where we have enforcers. Sadly, most of us are on the second type of channel. For example, when we want to go to Reddit, we asks our enforcers whether we can go there or not. In some countries, we are permitted, and some countries we are prohibited.

The Internet was originally a free and open space and these experiences hurt me deeply. I began to realize how these central authorities wielded absolute power and won't even compromise for their customers. Never trust these central authorities and always hold your own data. Their role is suppose to serve the customers, but when they grow big, they will monopolize their power because it's no longer they who needed the customers, it is us customers who needed them. Sure that this is no problem for nobles, celebrities, and other popular and important people, but for us commoners, it's like we are treated like garbage. Know this that I will use all of my effort to turn away people from your platforms.

3. Solution Proposal

Detailed solution will be on separate article where this post will be updated with links in the future.

a. Censorship and Privacy

  • Change DNS (domain name service).
  • Use proxy.
  • Use virtual private network (VPN).
  • Use anonymous network like Tor or other onion network.
  • Use blockchain (blockchain cannot be censored).

b. Termination

  • Use blockchain based platform (sometimes it is so powerful that you can't even delete your post), for example:
  • Go to the deepweb. (Popularly, use tor to access them.)
  • Built your own platform. (My Chinese now host his own blog on http://teiii.cn To be more powerful, have a copy on the blockchain and on the deepweb.)

Dream Journal: Forcefully Reborn as a Girl: I will continue this into a sequel

Chaper 0. Real Dream Part

Again I will start on my dream journal because another fun dream appeared and this time, I will write my own fictions of all the dreams that I found interesting.

The first part of the dream wasn't anything special. Only walking around on the streets, looking for a place to buy some snacks, and navigate my way home in these unfamiliar area. The dream then shifts to myself in a war state during the samurai era but more specifically I was in a Gintama Anime fighting along side the main characters during the Joie War, cutting my foes, dodging attacks, clashes of swords, blocking and dodging gunshots, cannons, cutting down ships, fighting giants, bloods, and all the battle imagination I could ever think off. We were attempting to stop the enemy in casting an enormous magic rushing to their headquarters. Then a large dragon like in Dragon Ball appeared and everything went bright.

I found myself carrying shopping bags and saw my house few steps away. I went in and saw my dad with few uncles, and told them that I just returned from shopping. As usual they're cheerful but strangely that told that I've grown up and became prettier. I was puzzled but paid no more attention and straight away went into my room because I remembered that previously I was at a war. Confused of everything, I just went to bed and lay down. Then I was surprised that my hair got in the way of my face. It was longer and silkier. I looked into the mirror, and it was right that my hair was longer and silkier, but more so, found my face strange. It was bright, smooth, and surprisingly cute. As I tried to talk to myself in surprise, I finally realized that my voice was high, soprano as a girl. I looked into the mirror again from far away, and saw myself turned into a girl.

Then I was in a car with my parents and was going to a highschool and I was in school uniform with a skirt. It turns out time went back to the age of when I was in highschool, but the story shifts about me transferring to a highschool. My past, everything was known as I was a girl, even they called by a name that I don't recognize which I cannot recall. I asked them whether they know *** (my original name) and didn't ring the bell. There are some picture books on the car and saw of me everything as a girl but I was very tomboyish. I asked them again whether I was really a girl, I don't act like a girl and certainly doesn't think like one. They told me that I am like a girl, that girls today are too fashionable, slutty, etc, and that I didn't need to worry. We finally reached the class, and my dad went to talk to the teacher. I couldn't hear them well, and when their voice was louder, I thought that they called me, I answered and went in front of the class. However, I was wrong and everybody in the class laughed. My mom covered her face in embarrassment. The a girl in the class asked me something about .....

The dream part ends here and the fiction part starts here.

Their referral system is also one of the best. They applied multi-level marketing where not only you will get a lifetime commission for inviting someone, but you will also get a commission the person you invited invites someone.

Cryptotab Browser screenshot of referral system from their page, basically like the explanation above.

Maybe the following reasons why beginners are relunctant in owning bitcoins:
  • Traditionally, a person needs to find another person who owns bitcoin to get.
  • It's usually easy to get bitcoin in exchanges, but nowadays you need "know your customer" (KYC) where you to upload your identification documents first before you can buy, and worse some requires proof of address.
  • A popular way to get bitcoin is through mining but setting up mining the usually way is difficult for average users.
