Gather Network offers users new sources of income as the world is forced to live online

Due to the continued influence of CoronaVirus, the majority of the world’s population has been banned at least once in the past year. As 2021 begins, we’re more dependent than ever on a stable internet connection to connect with friends and family, go shopping, and do our day-to-day work.

With the world glued to computer screens, tablets and smartphones, digital advertising is more widespread than ever. However, if one thing is certain, it is that most of us don’t like to see autoplay video ads every 5 seconds when visiting a website.

Gather Network offers an innovative solution for both digital consumers and webmasters. A product that offers non-intrusive monetization and at the same time rewards website visitors with an ad-free browsing experience. With the introduction of a web / app based miner that pays webmasters in digital currencies, Gather Network enhances the existing in-browser / in-app mining models that have been popular for a variety of uses.

Farewell to annoying ads

Research from HubSpot found that 91% of respondents felt that ads were more intrusive compared to two or three years ago. A separate survey found that computer users were the least likely to have pop-up ads, autoplay videos with sound, countdown ads, and large sticky ads. None of this is really surprising given the sheer ad volume we are encountering on the internet today.

Gather Network offers website visitors and application users an enhanced user experience with no pop-ups, subscription prompts, and even paywalls. In return for this ad-free experience, website / app visitors agree to a low level of computing power, roughly equivalent to that used when viewing a video ad and used by the website owner for the duration of their visit in a process known as web / App mining or in-browser / in-app mining.

In-browser / in-app miners are now seen as a potential alternative to digital advertising, providing a win-win opportunity for everyone involved to improve the user experience in a world where ads are increasingly drowning.

Monetization without a monopoly

Various nonprofits have historically used in-browser mining to raise funds for disaster relief with great impact. For those who host websites with large or long traffic, in-browser / in-app mining can significantly increase sales.

With global consumption of online content doubling in 2020, there has never been a better time for website and application developers to monetize their platforms without the need for intrusive and annoying ads. With Gather Network, anyone can integrate simple code into their platform and generate income from the processing power of the users to mine cryptocurrencies. The mandatory consent ensures transparency and protection of user privacy.

The next step in digital monetization

People around the world are looking for new ways to monetize digital skills like web and app development after wage cuts and layoffs struggled with coronavirus. As part of a three-tier, enterprise-grade ecosystem, the Gather Network platform gives website and app developers the ability to create new revenue streams using a fully legal and highly secure in-browser / in-app mining extension that outshines previous attempts previous blockchain projects.

The consumption patterns of content have changed dynamically in the last few months. The eyes of the world have focused on digital media and e-commerce more than ever. As the opportunities for digital monetization evolve, Gather Network is becoming a product that will benefit both consumers and providers.
