What I liked about Cent-

  • The best part of Cent is that its built on Ethereum platform which highly used platform now a days to empower lots of projects. Ether's advanced technology makes it more powerful which make it even more powerful.
  • Login process is smooth and easy to use and you won't have to manager various keys to keep your account safe.
  • Reward generated will get credited to your provided ether wallet.
  • Cent is integrated with various popular social media channels which provide more option to us to share our content.
  • Cent cash out post rewards after 3 hours of the post and not like steemit which takes 7 days for payout.
  • User Interface is nice and easy to use and anyone can quickly undersstand about the portal.
  • Team is proactive in terms of development and introducing new features as they introduced Cent Messenger & Instant ETH Transfers

Area of Improvement-

There is nothing much to improve in terms of DApp development as team has already done a tremendous job and they are working to add more features. I think this is not much popular so user base is also less. Marketing team need to work on promotion side. They need to promote through various platforms including steemit. People are not aware and spreading awareness will bring more users on board to make it even better place.

Conclusion-

I liked this concept of making money through social media. I am more active in Social Media and like me there are many people who spend lots of time and if they earn money along with that then its the best on that. Team has kept the account creation and website functionality so easy which is plus as people love using easy to things. I am impressed with the platform and suggest you to give it a try and I am sure you will like it.
My rating is 4.5 out of 5 star
