Steve St. Angelo Explains The Commodity Ad Network

18

Our old friend and longtime site member, Steve St. Angelo (SRSrocco), stopped by today to explain his new venture, The Commodity Ad Network. The goal of this project is to provide an alternative revenue source for media/information providers that Google is now censoring and labeling as "offensive".

Please take 20 minutes to listen to Steve's explanation of what he's helping to build. Not only is this a business that deserves some support, it's also a possible investment opportunity for anyone who performs the necessary due diligence and considers it a worthy speculation.

To that end, here are some links to review that Steve provided for everyone:

Thanks for listening,

TF

This is true innovation in action. When an established system loses focus and suppresses, risk takers start up a new one. Silver66

Keep up the good work Steve

I read every one of your writings. I hope this ad n/w works out.

MoonShiv.... We are extremely focused to make it successful

MoonShiv,

Thanks.... There are many plans for the Commodity Ad Network, but the most important one is the ability to keep the alt-media sites funded so they can continue to put the word out.

Commodity Ad Network founder, Peter Frohlich and I just finished doing an interview with fired Google Engineer, James Damore about some of the issues on censoring sites. One of my questions to James was about the censoring of Alt-media youtube videos ads like Ron Paul. I asked if he thought it would move to the Ads on websites, and his answer was... "It seemed like a logical progression."

So... it seems as if youtube was the testing ground, and then they will go after the websites.

Thanks Turd.... & Mark

Thanks Turd for the opportunity for sharing this and I appreciate the kudos, Marc.

I just wanted to let anyone know that if you have any questions about our Alternative Commodity Ad Network, please let me know and I will answer them here.

Just to let everyone know... the CDX is the token that will both fund the Commodity Ad Network as well as by the system that pays content creators-publishers and websites.

Steve / CDX

So Steve, I like the idea a lot. I am not sure how the tokens will be monetized in the future. I assume one or more sites such as Coinbase would have to trade them, or your advertisers would not be able to convert to fiat. I am also unclear how they will trade against ETH, ie. can you exchange one for the other at an appropriate ratio, or is the ratio fixed somehow? I sent you one ETH as an experiment. Thanks

The AMERICAN Way

The real one, that is.

Give people freedom from restrictions, choices on internet where it matters. The true info superhighway is coming soon....Thanks, Steve!

BTW, How About FREE Email

Free from spying, ads, tracking, etc.

Just an idea.

"Free" email

Just like healthcare and education, email isn't free. I suggest that you pay for your email. That way, the company is motivated to satisfying you as a customer. Free email services use the customer's information as their product to sell since they aren't selling an email service.

IMPORTANT UPDATE ON CDX

Hello, fellow Turdites. I wanted to give an update on the CDX Presale and Commodity Ad Network.

The CDX Token Presale has been an outstanding success as we have sold over 4,600 ETH, which equals 13.8 million CDX tokens. We have raised investment funds that equal 86% of our minimum funding of $2 million. There is still one more day left in the presale, and then we will be doing a marketing campaign on some of the top crypto currency websites in the world to promote the CDX ICO which runs from Sept 9th-30th. There will be bonuses during the ICO as well.

We will start implementing the Commodity Ad Network business model in September. Peter and I did an interview with fired Google Engineer James Damore yesterday about several topics, but when we asked him his opinion of Google moving from censoring Ad revenue on youtube channels (i.e. Ron Paul) to doing the same with Google Ad Sense, his answer was... "That seems like a logical move."

Without anyone speaking out about the way things are going at the largest ad network on the planet, then the Alternative Media message could likely fade away before we know it.

OUR INTERVIEW WITH FIRED GOOGLE ENGINEER JAMES DAMORE

As I mentioned in the previous post, Peter (founder of the Commodity Ad Network) and I did an interview with fired Google Engineer on many topics, but we discussed the ongoing censoring of Alt-Media youtube channels and etc. This was my first attempt at doing a Skype interview, so please excuse my inexperience.

Great Opportunity

Exciting!

Someone sent email request, but the reply did not go through

Hello... I received an email about the CDX token and Commodity Ad Network from a fellow Turdite. However, after I replied, the email was returned due to an incorrect address. If you read this comment, please contact me again with the correct email address. However, I will answer your question here as well:

First.... Advertisers that want to buy ad space on the network can pay Fiat Dollars or purchase CDX tokens. If they use fiat currency, then we convert it to CDX tokens and pay the content creators their portion. The rest goes to pay for expenses and to grow the business. If the advertisers purchase CDX tokens, they can access the Commodity Ad Network ad space system much quicker. We plan to add a Web Portal in 2018, to make this all automated. However, we want to do it manually for the first 6+ months, to get to know our advertisers on a ONE-TO-ONE basis. We will be hiring staff in Sept for this purpose.

Second... the ETH is only being used to purchase the CDX tokens during the funding period (Presale & ICO). However, when the CDX token is listed on the exchange, it will be traded in ETH first. We want to add the ability to trade CDX tokens with US Dollars, but that will come a bit later.

Lastly.... the content creators will be paid in CDX tokens once a month at different intervals. We don't want content creators dumping a whole bunch of CDX on the market at one time to get their Dollars or whatever other fiat currency they use. So, the CDX payouts will be at different times throughout the month.

One more thing. Because the content creator will be paid more than they are receiving from the largest ad network, they can use part of their CDX token payout to purchase ad space for a 50% reduction than advertisers to spread the word out about their site. Thus, those who take advantage will see traffic increase, as well as their monthly CDX token ad revenue income.

best regards,

steve
