The Money Made Me Do IT! - Moving to the Noise.App
Okay, I will move, Noise Cash Made me do it.....
Well not really, but by cutting off the monetization on Noise.Cash I feel sort of forced to follow the money and move to the Noise.App.
Now the noise app is basically the new and probably improved version of Noise.Cash. If you want to have a walkthrough first please read:
But why would you move away from one platform to start a whole new one?
Because of my job I am sideways involved in creating online tools. Therefore I am very aware that creating a new tool using good code from the start is much easier than updating an existing tool. Or platform in the case of Noise.Cash.
If you slowly replace old code with new, you are likely to break stuff you did not even know had a connection to that piece of code. Secondly, if users are already using the tool the amount of downtime and risks of breaking stuff by introducing patches should be kept to a minimum.
On top of that Noise.Cash could use a cleanup because I got like 3500 followers of which I probably see 35 online frequently.
The big washout
So we can consider this transition a big clean-up of all things Noise cash, both users, code, and even the social infrastructure. And that last part is where I like to focus mostly today. Due to the invite lonely policy and how that determines the interaction between users, there were some things I had to figure out.
I figured out how to see who replies to my post and comments:
That is all very nicely logged under Discussions, and labeled when you open that discussion.
So the only limitation is that you can not reply to people you follow but do not follow you. And you have no way on Noise to let them know you would like to communicate.
Now I know this is planned, but I don´t know if that plan was such a great one.
Messages & Notifications
I also figured out where I could find who followed me, using my invite link. But those people I auto-follow. I wanted to see who follows me so I can follow back and we can comment on each other's posts.
Within that same Message feature, I see this comment regarding Notifications.
That refers to the bell function you can enable for each user:
Clicking the bell will turn it red and will enable the notifications when that user posts something.
The message/chat function in messages only applies to those people that join through your link and are also the only ones you can directly message in messages.
Those two limitations, that you can not message all the people that follow you and you follow back, and the fact you can not comment on someone that you follow and does not follow you back limit your social interactions.
Will that improve?
Two months ago Noise´s Part-Time Dev mentioned we have only seen 20% and the app would be released soon.
The app is released, but apart from that and making some of the functionalities actually work there is not a lot that happened these last months.
On top of that you can not get social with new people with the same interest last there are no groups or channels where like-minded noisers can noise.
And if you make a mistake, you can´t fix it due to lack of an edit button.....but that just might come soon....well in a couple of months max.
So far I think I figured out most of the Noise App desktop version.
And now the part you all have been waiting for, How Much & What to Do with it?
Regarding the "What to do with the Bitcoin cash you receive as a donation from the platform?" I have been reading about converting BCH donations to HIVE. So-called to earn more HIVE.
You will need to set up a wallet address for deposits. The simple way that I have seen is by using BlockTrades. Log into your Block Trades account.
If you do not have an account you can set one up here After you log on to BlockTrades, you will want to select Bitcoin Cash in the SEND box, and HIVE in the receiver box.
Don't take this as financial advice from a baby, but I would strongly advise against that, for one simple reason;
Hive High during last bull run 2.67 current 0.49 means 5X
BCH High during last bull run 1300 current 120 means 10X
And don´t get me wrong, I like to make loads more HIVE. But I just don´t think this is the smartest way.
But if you plan to swap your BCH make sure to find a coin that is strong and can do a 15X based on the previous bull run. The thing is there are few blue chip ALTs with that potential, but if I can make a suggestion it´s Elrond EGLD.
Of course, there are people, that will need the cash now and their noise earnings just allow them to get by. But the lucky few that can hodl their BCH are going to appreciate Noise a lot in a year or two.
As I have been tracking a bit my daily donations, which are expected to come from the platform I can tell you that they are sufficient to keep me active. Let's say they are between$1 and $2 a day for these last two weeks.
But with Noise, you can never assume it is normal or will remain as such. Because these last 24 hours I have been noticing a change to the downside. This change caused my donations to drop to about 50 cents a day.
Now from past experiences, I know Noise love to play with their donation algorithms so this might be temporary. And if not I am back to what I was making during the last weeks of Noise.Cash.
The bottom line is that BCH has in it itself to do an easy 5X at the start of the bull and will probably go up to $1000 at some point. That means that everything you get as a donation today will do 10X easily if you can just hold on to it.
And that is just what I am doing. I used to use Celsius to get a bit more bucks out of my BCH, but nowadays I hold my keys and after 5 months of hard work I finally made back the 2BCH Celsius stole from me. That might be $240 today, but in April 2025 that will be $2400. And if I made 2 BCH in 5 months, just imagine how much Noise I could make in 25 months?
If nobody sent you an invite to make some Noise, I will gladly invite you, dear reader:
And if you are already making Noise follow me at: https://noise.app/BitcoinBaby
And drop a comment so I can follow back. The world can use more Noise.
