Ever feel like posting your photos on traditional social media is literally like burning hundreds of dollar bills? Yeah, me too. I mean sure, there are people with millions of Instagram followers who make money. But the little guys like us pretty much get nothing. Hearts mean nothing. Followers mean nothing. But Instagram gets to run ads while people view our profiles and cash in.

That seems backwards doesn’t it?

Shouldn’t the content creators be rewarded?

This week I came across DeSo Diamond (formally known as BitClout) and it is a total game changer. The social media of the past took from the little guys and never gave anything back. DeSo has changed all that. Instead of you spend time posting, curating a following and get nothing in return (while Instagram and Facebook make a killing), DeSo rewards its content creators. You can instantly begin profiting with the content you create. The following you curate actually can reward you monetarily. And people can invest in you personally as an artist by buying your “Creator Coin”, which is almost like your personal stock.

The social media of the past took from the little guys and never gave anything back. DeSo has changed all that.

DeSo is a revolution.

Bottom line — It’s been less than a week and I’ve already made money. And I haven’t even sold one NFT.

That’s right, you can even sell NFTs of your photos — it’s super easy because DeSo is based on blockchain technology.

“The internet started as a fundamentally decentralized ecosystem, but we’re at a point in history where things have concentrated and where innovating is harder than it used to be. After much thought over the past several years, we are convinced that the pendulum will swing back toward decentralization, perhaps permanently, and we all have an opportunity to be a part of that. A new generation of applications that the entire world can build collaboratively, unlocking the full potential of human ingenuity.”

Here’s the steps I recommend.

  1. Create an account at Diamond (a DeSo “Node”)
  2. Buy some $DESO coin (it stands for “Decentralized Social”)
  3. Buy some of your own creator coin while it’s still cheap
  4. Start posting daily photos
  5. Follow interesting people (like me @nathanwells!)

And watch your earnings grow! Plus connect with some great people along the way!
