Using YouTube for content creation and monetization can be hard to rely on, especially with its ever-changing algorithms that creators need to learn.
However, platforms like XCAD have proven to be extremely beneficial in allowing content creators to pull huge engagement and monetize their content.
XCAD is a decentralized monetization platform for content creators. The platform provides extra revenue-generating opportunities to help content creators grow their channels. XCAD offers several products and innovative solutions to help both growing and established creators connect better with their audience.
In addition to this, it gives them the opportunity to empower themselves and their audience with additional monetization opportunities.
XCAD also offers educational programs to help upcoming creators efficiently craft the best way to stand out and succeed.
The platform has an ERC-20 and ZRC-2 native token, the XCAD token. The token is useful as an asset of exchange in the XCAD ecosystem. It also serves as the main governance token that users can use for decision-making processes.
On top of this, users and creators in the Xcad program can earn passive income by locking their XCAD tokens in liquidity farms or by staking them in pools.
To earn passively by staking XCAD tokens, first, you must fund your wallet with XCAD tokens.
XCAD is available on Centralized exchanges like Huobi, Hotbit, or Kucoin. It is also available on Decentralised exchanges like Pancakeswap or Uniswap. Therefore, if you have ETH or BNB coins, you can quickly swap them for XCAD on DEXes.
If you have a verified CEX account with Kucoin or Hotbit, you can easily fund your wallet with USDT from P2P exchanges or via Credit/debit cards. Then swap the USDT for XCAD.
