As a social media enthusiast, you are probably using the biggest social platforms already, including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram. At the same time, you know how convenient social media landscapes would be if all platforms were integrated into one place. Technology has, over the years, been proving that nothing is impossible. However, the thought of such an integration in social networks seems quite complex. Fortunately, introducing a working solution seems to be among Apollo Fintech’s major programs in 2020.
Apollo Fintech is a renowned blockchain technology company based in Africa and North America. The company’s CEO, Steve McCullah, came up with the Stratus idea, which seems to be taking shape five years later. Stratus is a social media ecosystem set to launch in Q3 2020 to become the most functional and efficient social ecosystem globally.
The Most Technologically Advanced Ecosystem
Technological flexibility has made social media an essential aspect of modern life. Since the inception of major platforms like Facebook and Instagram, there has been a steady increase in their uptake, signifying their usefulness. Such platforms serve as socializing, entertainment, information, and economic growth avenues, all of which are critical aspects of modern life. However, while the platforms afford users great functionality, they leave significant opportunities for exploitation. The opportunities are centered on increasing their functionality and solving the issues plaguing them.
Stratus is utilizing the most advanced technology, Apollo Blockchain, an innovation that has already provided real-world solutions. Apollo Fintech plans to utilize the technology to bring more social media functionality and address common problems like data security, political injustices, and freedom of speech
Hacking and illegal access to personal accounts have been a widespread threat to social media users. Companies have been undertaking data mining projects to sell user information to advertising entities. The attackers use various forms to gain access to information, including phishing. One memorable social media hack targeted Twitter users, a mass prominent Twitter account hacking that affected prominent users’ accounts like former president Barack Obama.
The social media platforms have as well been used to alter critical national processes such as presidential elections. Governments also organize crackdowns on various platform users, an action that, in most cases, happens under the pretense of protecting public peace. Platform administrators have also been instituting censorship programs, some of which restrict users’ freedom of expression.
Stratus as the Solution
Based on Apollo Blockchain technology, Stratus will be the best platform that addresses current social media problems. Apollo Fintech has implemented database sharding to help store and protect user data. Its technology stores data in continuous blocks to form a chain consisting of interconnected blocks. The chain adds a layer of security with each block, making it nearly impossible to hack. The blockchain’s infrastructure outsmarts even the smartest firewalls, while the end to end encryption will ensure users have safe interactions.
Furthermore, Stratus will incorporate algorithms that will break any censoring programs, apart from content against the legal framework.
Greater Functionality and Revenue
Complaints have been rampant in the past about selling of user data without their consent. Stratus seeks to eliminate such complaints by adopting transparent and fair processes and avenues for revenue generation. The platform will provide the most innovative social media ecosystem with the best functionality to promote uptake and easy access to services.
The Stratus ecosystem will ease access to networking platforms like LinkedIn, thereby promoting access to work opportunities. It will incorporate other platforms like UpWork, a freelancing site, making it not only accessible to users but also ease transactions through its instant payment capabilities.
Social media influencers will earn from videos and different posts through a one-click payment model. The platform will support payment wallets like PayPal with the capability of transacting almost all currencies. Such functionalities will allow easy and fast payment for influencers on posts and product endorsements. Amazon and eBay are among the supported online stores where influencers will find instant endorsements from sellers. Influencers will be in for a significant rise in their revenues through the feature-rich ecosystem’s VIP Content.
VIP Content will be a unique publishing avenue for influencers, where they will charge low subscription fees which users will not mind paying. The platform will, therefore, boost the revenues of any influencer. They will have an array of products from where they can choose what to endorse. Stratus also plans to share its revenues from direct advertising with the biggest influencers.
Stratus influencers will also benefit from a referral program that seeks to reward them on subscriber referrals. The program will run with commissions going as high as 50%. Stratus will support a feature to embed a product store, and subscribers can place an order in one click and pay via their wallets.
Originally, social media could be defined as a technology that supports interactions by sharing information, ideas, and thoughts using virtual networks. As technology advances, new functionalities have been coming up, although the Stratus innovation seems to be redefining what the average person calls social media.
Rather than the usual array of networks with distinct capabilities, rules, and insecurities, it will be one robust ecosystem supported by Apollo Blockchain. It will run under blockchain’s second to none-infrastructure, guaranteeing the best security, functionality, and efficiency.
