How To Earn Cryptocurrency With Your Photographs
Update: 02 February 2019: We have now added Appics to the list of cryptocurrency Instagram hybrids
Attention millennials listen up I know times are tough, and everyone could do with a side hustle right? Well, side hustling is hard, and not everyone has the chops for it right? Wrong! 2018 is the year you learn to monetize your spare time so you can pay for all those avo and toast sarmies.
So how I'm I going to convince you to get on the easy side hustle train? I'm not, I'm simply going to explain it to you, and you can take it from there. If you like to spend your time on social media and enjoy posting pictures of anything you find interesting, why not get paid for it? Did that get your attention? Good! Now for the technical stuff.
Two competiting cryptocurrency websites have started picking up traction in recent months that reward users for posting their photos on their sites, they are called Steepshot, and the other is called Mithril (And no not its the armour Mr Frodo wore in The Lord of the Rings)
What is Steepshot?
Steepshot is a Dapp that runs on Steem blockchain and bears a striking resemblance to Instagram. The premise of Steepshot is that it rewards people for sharing their pictures using the app. Simply take a picture, add a description, including a few relevant hashtags, post it and waiting for people to comment or upvoting your post. The amount you earn is based on the amount and the quality of upvotes you receive from users of Steemit or Steepshot since they are integrated you'll receive exposure on both platforms.

What is Appics?
APPICS is a next generation, reward-based social media application that introduces a new ecosystem which merges lifestyle, passion, and user-generated income inside a single mobile application.
Unlike on any other popular social media site, where 100% of the platform’s value and revenue goes to the corporate shareholders, APPICS enables all users to earn a fair share of the overall revenue, as well as a creative influence within the network, through a cryptocurrency reward-token.
APPICS is not yet available to the general public via the App store and you will need to fill in the early bird form on their site in order to gain access. APPICS currently runs on the STEEM blockchain just like Steepshot

What is Mithril?
Mithril is a decentralised social media platform built on the Ethereum Blockchain and users the ERC-20 token protocal. It rewards users who post regularly on the platform via a new concept called social mining. Each user's content and social interactions generated in the Mithril ecosystem will mine MITH based on our algorithm. Which basically boils down to the more active you are on the platform, the more you're able to earn.
Mithril tokens will soon be accepted throughout the Mithril Merchant Network, with online applications such as dating services, premium content channels, and live-stream applications, or retailers, starting with INST.RECYCLE.
