I have been waiting for the 'right time' to make this blog post...And seeing that the world is coming to an end soon, might as well mention it now right :)

All jokes aside, I really want to talk to the person that is still on the 'fence' about this whole cryptocurrency and blockchain stuff. I'm speaking to the entrepreneur that may see some potential upside, but isn't yet sold on how big this stuff will be in the future...

Over the past few years, I've replaced...Literally everything when it comes to my businesses online. From social media, to internet tools. I have found not only viable replacements for these tradition sites and services but MASSIVE use case for them as well...I wanted to share a few of these things that I've found and adopted, and show you how the future is VERY exciting for those of us in early adoption...

Decentralization is a fantastic concept on paper, and I'm all for it! However I'm much more interested in the actual use case....

Can I USE this stuff, everyday, to build my brands and my businesses...The resounding answer to that is..Yes!


Steem Replaced Facebook

There is much more that Steem brought to the table, but for simplicity sake, I wanted to highlight why I believe Steem is positioned perfectly to become everyone's 'home page' online. The communities that are being formed here on Steem are a lot more attractive than any Facebook group could be. And cover your ears if you don't wanna hear about the 'opportunity' here but it's true...Steem is the perfect 'entry' point for people to crypto and the blockchain...Engage with the community, use the token and actually earn some in the process. Use case and being rewarded for doing so! That's powerful!


Appics Replaced Instagram

I have a confession...I am not a fan of Instagram. The egotistical 'selfie' movement never captured my attention...But I get it. I understand why it's so popular. That being said, for building brands, and marketing purposes, it's very effective. So when a program like Appics came along...I was sold! Building a brand, on top of a blockchain, while being rewarded for doing so and engaging with a community? Sign me up! This platform is just getting it's legs so for me, building on it NOW is critical...I'll make multiple posts on Appics a week, and maybe 1 a month on Instagram. Replaced is an understatement...

brave browser

Brave Replaced Chrome & Firefox

Maaaaaaan! Do I love me some Brave Browser!!!! Remember above when I said 'use case', well the Brave browser along with it's native token (BAT) are changing the way we use and surf the web forever. Not only do you get rewarded for viewing ads that ACTUALLY interest you, but you can pocket the BAT you earn and send it out into the world in the form of 'tipping'. Talk about a win-win! I just see this becoming the new 'way' to use the internet and when it comes to the tech...Wow...brave actually speeds up your surfing and web browsing experiences like never before. Once you try it, you'll be hooked!


Presearch Replaced Google

Might be a stretch right now to make that claim, because we just co-exist in Googles world...But projects like Presearch and it's PRE token have so much upside I can't even begin to describe it. Imagine being rewarded in a token every time you do a search online? Well that's what the team at Presearch is trying to do. A more community based search engine that rewards you for using it. I admit, this is a brand new project and who knows where it goes...But you can SEE where the blockchain can replace tradition, legacy type platforms. Personally, I have completely replaced Google for my search needs and now only use Presearch as my search engine!


Fire-Pay Replaced PayPal

Ahhh my mission in life! To give affiliate marketers and online entrepreneurs a much more secure and safe way to do transactions online. By now you've read my PayPal history and when it happened, I made it my mission to get more affiliate marketers to blockchain based payment solutions and that's what we are building with Fire-Pay. We've started with CTP Token and now have over 80 merchants accepting Fire-Pay on their websites...We think that's pretty cool :) And it's just getting started...

Let me stress that even more...

We are JUST getting started at seeing this revolution before our eyes!

When people complain about the price of crypto and when it rises or falls I just smile...We need to stop looking at the price and look at what it's replacing. Look at what the future may look like on the blockchain! That should excite every entrepreneur that reads this post and get you even more fired up to...USE THIS STUFF! And accumulate it! Build brands with it! Spend it! And tell the world about it....

I am already using Brave, Presearch, and, of course, Steem. Now I will try Fire-Pay. Thank you.

Awesome! It's full integrated using CTP Token....So the more CTP Token you earn, the more you can spend with Fire Pay :)

Aloha Jon!
Great post today! I have been using the brave browser. That is what I am on right now.
I have to use google chrome though for the webinars because for some reason the sound doesn't work on my brave browser.

I have also been using the fire-pay whenever I can. I am not excited about PayPal but some of my advertising resources use Pay Pal, Payza, Solid Trust Pay etc. I am thankful for the sites that uses FirePay so that I can buy advertising there.

So awesome to hear :)

Yeah and it's growing. I think once more people embrace crypto as a means of receiving payments, Fire Pay will grow by leaps and bounds.

I would upvote this twice if I could. Really helpful and now learning about projects I didn’t know existed.

LOL Appreciate that. Glad you found it informative.

Have to check in to that firepay bit.

Pretty slick little script we created. Basically opened the world to Steem Engine tokens and zero need for PayPal.

But I'm very biased lol

You could add a twitter alternative based on blockchain called Peepeth.

it supports Metamask login as well.

Not a big fam of ETH and the whole MetaMask stuff....Way too complicated for simpletons like myself lol

Brilliant post with lots of information. I do have brave on my phone that I should probably use a lot more but browse with it on my pc.

Appics I heard about yesterday on mspwaves so may look into that one as well. I think Actifit I'll get back in to as I'm doing this running and hiking challenge this year so will be good to track progress and let the steem community know without boring them too much hopefully!

Actifit is awesome. I just didn't replace anything with it cause there was nothing like it before it was released :) I'm a huge fan of it!

Good article. Thank you

You have really captured the power of what this blockchain and crypto can do right now @jongolson, and also leading by example and using them as your main tools yourself, this will only grow as we move forward, keep up your great work, it's awesome.

Thanks @jongolson, and keep up your awesome work.

There are many reasons why I love Steem, as you well know, but this is a great list for anyone who wants to know the core sites to use as he/she enters the blockchain world. The possibilities are endless.

I admit, I have not heard of the Presearch project yet, but fully intend to look into implementing this in my daily business routine. While, yes, I still do use some of the mainstream centralized apps, I find myself reaching for the apps & programs you discussed more often than not.

To think, this is only the beginning! 🧚‍♀️😉

It's not the newest project, but I'm new to it for sure :)

Trying it out as a replacement for Alphabet Inc LOL
