May 10, 2021 – Today, we’re proud to announce the debut of Hashtagger, a blockchain-based social media marketing company that helps people get paid for their social media posts. Hashtagger has raised $250000 in a round led by NGC, CMS, Liquefy Labs, Genesis Block Ventures and Spark Capital, and also by blockchain veteran Xinshu Dong. Moreover, founding partner of NGC Ventures Tony Gu, co-founder and CEO of CMS Joe DeTomasso and co-founder of Liquefy Labs Adrian Lai will join Hashtagger’s advisory board.
Founded by a team with deep experience in marketing in the blockchain sector, the goal of Hashtagger is to create advertising solutions for blockchain companies that compliments the unique requirements of this ecosystem.
“Any decentralized project lives and dies through the community’s interest or the lack thereof. For this reason, cryptocurrency projects have always prioritized social media channels where the global crypto community primarily resides. On Twitter alone, crypto enthusiasts make millions of tweets per year to increase awareness of their favorite coins, yet only a minuscule few of them ever get directly paid for their efforts, despite their valuable contributions. Hashtagger aims to correct this asymmetry,” said Saiba Kataruka, co-founder and CEO of Hashtagger.
“The amalgamation of web 2.0 and web 3.0, once fully manifested, is very likely to have major implications,” said Tony Gu, managing partner and co-founder of NGC ventures. “However, to take the lead in this space, one needs to correctly address the token economics of the project, so that it properly matches the incentives of the cryptocurrency projects, major influencers and casual social media users. Getting it right is not a particularly trivial problem. However, we feel that the Hashtagger team has used their experience in the space to address that issue neatly.”
Hashtagger is currently in the process of collaborating with major crypto influencers before the official launch. Those who are interested can also apply as an early tester here with their Twitter handle, or simply become a part of the community for the details.
Early members of the community will be able to participate in beta testing (to be launched in May) and social media campaigns operated through Hashtagger’s technology, and will be eligible for receiving tokens for their contributions to the campaign. More details of Hashtagger will be available in the community links below.
