The Mexican Bitcoin Exchange Bitso is Raising Cryptocurrencies for Earthquake Charities in Mexico

Mexico is having an unfortunate time with catastrophic earthquakes that took place over the past two weeks killing hundreds of people. According to the trading platform Bitso’s recent blog post, the startup is asking for donations in BTC, XRP, and ETH in it’s “Bitcoin Aids Mexico” fundraiser. Bitso says the donations will be sent to the Mexico-based Red Cross center and the local earthquake rescue crew Brigada de Rescate Topos Tlaltelolco A.C.   

“Unfortunately Mexico has been hit with another devastating earthquake. Please support Mexico by making donations via BTC, ETH, or XRP,” explains the Bitso exchange.

Bitso will provide verifiable receipts signed by Mexico’s Central Bank that donations were made. Please help raise awareness by using the hashtag #BitcoinAidMexico.

Bitso’s Jose Rodriguez Details the Fundraising Will be Completely Transparent

Bitso plans to withdraw the funds once a week over the course of the next month and will confirm the donations went to the right places with official central bank receipts. The announcement follows the company’s ongoing charitable effort to help victims of the September 7th earthquake; which destroyed much of the country’s infrastructure.

The Mexican trading platform says the size of the donation doesn’t matter and the company started the charitable pot by donating MXN $50,000. However, Bitso says the company cannot make user contributions tax deductible. “Mexican Pesos will be transferred on behalf of third parties according to Mexican law LISR artículo 35, and the following TIN XAXX010101000 will be used in order to generate the corresponding payment as ‘General Public Invoice,’” explains Bitso VP, Jose Rodriguez.

Muchas gracias for helping Mexico on behalf of all of us at Bitso!

The Third Cryptocurrency Natural Disaster Relief Effort In the Past Month

The latest effort to help Mexico follows a few other charitable fundraising projects using cryptocurrencies to help natural disaster victims in the past thirty days. Just recently the billionaire entrepreneur and Antigua and Barbuda resident, Calvin Ayre, has offered to match BTC and BCH donations to help Barbuda residents who suffered from Hurricane Irma. A week before that storm another effort was set up by the Crypto Show broadcast who raised well over $50K in cryptocurrency funds to help hurricane victims in Texas.

5 Tips on how to build a brand on Social Media

Posted on September 21st, 2017 by Ziipa

Posted By: http://www.webgrrls.com/blog/5-tips-on-how-to-build-a-brand-on-social-media/

Everyone seems to understand that it’s important to have a “brand” as branding is the foundation on which your entire online marketing ‘platform’ is built.  But more and more people are asking me: “How can I build a brand on the various Social Media platforms?”.

Social Media is Nothing New

Before we dive into the tips, it’s good to realize that Social Media is nothing new and we all have been doing it from the beginning of time…Social Media is about connecting with people.  What has changed are the tools.  The tools now allow us to make that human connection on a whole different level…having access to people from all over the world where information travels at the speed of light!

Tips for Building a Brand on Social Media

  1. Define your brand…your story
    In Social Media, your brand story appears in your bio or tag line.  Make sure to write a great bio/tag line that tells your story.Things you should include in your Brand Story

    • Identify What You Value
    • Identify What Makes You Unique
    • Identify How You Want To Be Perceived
    • Identify Your Specialty
    • Identify Your Target Market


    Here are 3 examples on Twitter community that tell a great story:

    RedheadWriting

    JonathanFields

    DanielleLaPorteOne important note is to tailor your bio for each community if necessary.  The target audiences that you want to reach in different communities might vary, so, you have to know the community in order to speak to it’s members in a language that they understand and expect.

    Also, remember to use keywords that you want to be found under in your bio as this is how users of that community will find you.

  2. Use a Great Photo
    I can’t stress this enough.  Your photo is the human connection.  Make sure that it is clear and portrays your personality.  Can you guess which photos I think you should use?
    Photos in Social Media Marketing
  3. Engage with your community to build relationships
    Because there is so much going on in everyone’s lives today, engaging with the community members is the only way to stay on top of their minds.
    How do you engage?

    • Ask Questions
    • Answer other people’s questions
    • Comment on people’s posts
    • Respond to people when they try to reach out to you

    To help you manage your Social Media communications, you have to monitor what people say about your brand and respond in a timely manner. To monitor what people say about your brand, you can use Google Alerts, Addictomatic, and Twitter Search.

  4. Be Remarkable!
    In order to succeed in Social Media, you have to be remarkable!  The power of Social Media tools are SHARING features, where people can easily pass something they like on to their networks.People share remarkable thingsPeople want to connect with remarkable people
  5. Be Ubiquitous
    You have to create multiple streams of YOU on all the different social networks but you have to create a “HUB” (usually your blog/website) where people can find all of the info about you in one place.Be Ubuquitous
