Tim Draper backed and attention monetization company Bitbounce announced on Thursday it has processed more than one billion emails through its free cryptocurrency spam solution that enables its members to earn compensation for receiving paid email messages from senders they do not know.
BitBounce reported that its global footprint is increasing daily, recently surpassing one million active users and three million registered users. Its email solution is free to download and works with all major email providers including Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo Mail and AOL. Members earn compensation in the form of the cryptocurrency, Credo, when they receive paid messages from senders outside of their network.
“The earnings can be cashed in or traded for other cryptocurrencies on BitBounce’s CredoEx exchange or on Coinbene, DDEX, Coinone, EtherDelta, HIB8, IDEX, Kkcoin or OTCBTC. When a sender of an unsolicited email opts out of payment, their correspondence is not lost, but instead is delivered to a seperate folder for easy management.”
While sharing more details about the company’s services, Stewart Dennis, Co-founder and CEO of BitBounce, stated:
“Consumers consider an astonishing 50 percent of the emails they receive to be unsolicited spam. It is our mission to disrupt the advertising and marketing paradigm so that consumers get paid directly for their attention. Growing irritation with spam overload, paired with the fact that more than half of the planet uses email, makes this platform a logical starting point for precipitating change.”
BitBounce went on to add that its member base of almost four million utilizes the service to more efficiently filter and respond to email. Its members are young and digitally savvy, with 72 percent being under the age of 35.
