Introducing DDIMario
Thriving in the Attention Economy with DDImario | by Justin Chan, Ph.D. | Dec, 2021 | DataDrivenInvestor
We would like to bring your attention to our next tool - DDImario - aiming at solving a huge problem in getting natural, online engagement to an otherwise scarcely visited website, article, or anything you wish visitors to go to.
How DDImario helps:
  • (for website/blog owner/writer) gain readership and natural engagement on online content;
  • (for anyone else) earn an income in DDIN tokens, which will be exchangeable into USD;
The first-phase [internal] launch with our writers has been extremely successful. Writers found more high-quality engagements on their articles, not just on medium, but also on their own wordpress blogs. Besides the obvious benefits, many of our trial users also earn DDINs (which allow them to create more tasks in the system for others to work on). With our continuous expansion on platform integrations and task types, it is not hard to imagine a totally new type of “work” is being invented at DDI.
To experience its effect on your own website or medium article, you can sign up at this *special* link to receive 10 DDINs, which you can create your first task right away. After 2 days, you can still sign up using the same link, but you will get a standard 5-DDIN user account.
If you are a regular DDI writer (medium or main site), you can send a email to [email protected] and request for a special link to get 20-DDIN new account.
