Earning Bitcoin with Bitlanders

With bitlanders users get bitcoins just for doing stuff that they already do on other social networks like Facebook and Twitter. It’s a pretty simple process. Users who contribute and participate in the social platform are awarded regarding their posting activity performance.

Just by posting images, videos or writing posts, users will be able to earn some tips directly from the social media platform. It takes time for users to earn a good amount, but it can increase pretty fast if their content becomes very popular.

The Buzz Score

The Buzz Score is the patent pending measurement that BitLanders implemented to quantify user’s scores and reward them based on the popularity of the content they produce. The higher a user Buzz Score is, higher their returns will be.

Shopping system
