Coinverge is creating high quality, easy-to-digest cryptocurrency & blockchain content

Okay here's the deal with who we are and why we're starting a Patreon account:

Our Situation:

We are Converge – a media platform and business community.

Converge requires pretty much all of our time to run – something we love to do, by the way.

However, we're also huge fans of blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies, and the huge potential they both have to enable positive change all over the world.

In fact, we're such big fans, we decided to create a whole section on our website dedicated entirely to the blockchain and cryptocurrencies (and the businesses operating in that space).

We also wanted to solve a problem - the problem that a lot of content written about the blockchain and cryptocurrencies is very technical and can be difficult to follow unless you know all the jargon.

In truth, it can be off-putting to most people (which is a problem when adoption of these exciting new technologies requires people learning about and understanding their potential).

So, to solve that issue (and to satisfy our own urges as enthusiasts to write about it) we decided to create high-quality, educational and interesting content that absolutely anyone can understand and engage with.

But that's where the problem lies. We just don't have the time to create as much amazing content as we would like.

Running Converge is a full-time job. So we need to hire more people to help us create content for Coinverge.

1) We want to educate as many people on the benefits of blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies.

We have an amazing reach – over 14 million people – and we want to put as much content in front of them as possible.

We believe very strongly that intelligent, educational content is one of the most powerful tools in the fight for mass adoption of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technologies.

To create as much content as we want we'll need at least one new writer/editor.

2) We need to make Coinverge self-sustaining.

Pulling funds to sustain Coinverge from the Converge business was fine initially, but we need
Coinverge to pull its own weight and make itself sustainable. Why? So we can keep producing content for it, and spread the word!

We've had a number of inquiries from businesses in the crypto world that have asked us about advertising, but we'd rather stay away from that model so we can create a better experience for our readers (ads are annoying), and stay truly unbiased.

While we do want to work with certain businesses by creating partnerships, we're very picky about who we work with, and will likely never partner with more than a couple of businesses at a time – which will not generate anywhere near the income we require.

Thinking about the long-term self-sustaining plan, we decided that offering our readers the opportunity to support Coinverge by donating small sums on a monthly basis would be a much better option than selling advertising.

The way Patreon works is a reader can donate whatever they want per month and the donation is recurring each month after that. So anything, from $1/month up, is hugely helpful to the cause.

What We'll Use the Money For:

Our initial goal is $10,000/month. That money will allow us to dedicate more time and resources to keep Coinverge going, indefinitely. Here's where the money will go:

Hosting. We need a big hosting plan to support the highest spikes in traffic we ever get so our website doesn't crash! This isn't cheap. 

Campaign Monitor. The service we use to email posts out to the subscription list. This fee grows as the email list grows.

Ongoing web development. Coinverge will need constant monitoring and regular updates to keep it friendly with Google and create the best user experience. It'll all need paying for.

Facebook post "boosts". When we announce a new post on Facebook, this makes sure that the posts get in front of as large and audience as possible, helping us grow our platform and reach millions. 

Employee(s). We need people to handle things like writing, editing, spam comment deletion, comment section replies, and a bunch of other little jobs. These things end up adding up to a few hours every day, and without these employees, the regular Converge team ends up doing it all, which just isn't possible right now.

With all of the above covered, Coinverge can support itself!

Anyway, thanks for any support you can offer if you decide to, and thanks for being a reader!

Reaching this first goal will allow us to outsource some writing and editing help. It's not going to make Coinverge fully sustainable, but it's a HUGE step forward.
