ARK Announces Partnership with Ecency

As we approach the launch of MarketSquare, we want to give our community an inside look at some of the partnerships we have formed. These strategic partnerships will not only help make MarketSquare the new homepage for the decentralized web but will also create inroads between ARK and other projects looking to build and collaborate together. Today we would like to introduce you to Ecency!

What is Ecency?

Ecency is a decentralized open-source social network built and powered by users. Ecency promotes community-building and empowering content creators through rewards on their blogging platform.

By being a content creator on Ecency you can earn cryptocurrency, which is rewarded to all users for various social activities they perform on Ecency.com as well as the Ecency Mobile and Desktop applications. Additionally, Ecency’s users can also earn Ecency Points by referring their friends to the platform.

Ecency Points are continually minted and rewarded to Ecency’s users. These points can be:

  • used for content promotion/boosting
  • rewarded to your community
  • transferred/gifted to another user

The Ecency team created Ecency points to encourage engagement and motivate community members to remain active on the platform.

Join Ecency by visiting their sign up page

A main focus for the Ecency team was making sure their site is readable and accessible to a wide variety of people from different backgrounds and cultures. Their site and applications are currently accessible in 10 different languages.

Ecency & MarketSquare

As Ecency establishes a presence on MarketSquare, we look forward to collaborating with our respective communities.

You will also be able to see Ecency on the Hive Hub! We recently went over an article detailing Hubs on MarketSquare and how they will help users learn about and get a birds-eye-view of entire ecosystems.

While you wait for the MarketSquare Beta, be sure to sign up at MarketSquare.io and subscribe to our YouTube channel for an upcoming video about Ecency.

We look forward to working with Ecency and having them as a partner on MarketSquare.
