What is Harmony?
The Harmony blockchain is a versatile network that has offers unlimited opportunities for cross-chain application hosting. Harmony’s infrastructure maintains 2-second transaction finality, which helps decentralized applications to enhance their operations. Harmony also implements sharding technology, an innovative approach that has been proven to scale blockchains without taking a toll on security and decentralization.
Why do influencers choose ONE donations?
Every crypto has its own community of dedicated investors and enthusiasts. Whenever a new use case for certain crypto emerges, its respective community rushes to check it out. Influencers can generate a lot of buzz for their content and personality by simply featuring crypto donations. By attracting crypto enthusiasts to explore your ONE donations, you can turn them into loyal audience members and fans. By the way, it also works with selling merch for crypto. You can start accepting Harmony or any other cryptocurrency as payment for the fan merch you sell on your website.
ONE transactions also can save influencers a lot of money. Basically, ONE transactions are cheap since the Harmony blockchain has low fees. In fact, the Harmony fees are so low that you will not even notice them. This is perfect for influencers who often lose a substantial share of their income from donations due to bank fees. Banks set their fees at outrageous rates, which both hurt influencers and their audience members. By using ONE, influencers can provide their audience with a low-fee option for donations.
Blockchains, including Harmony’s, also possess exemplary transparency. All transactions are recorded in a public ledger, and the information about them is public. Influencers who raise money as part of different campaigns can benefit from ONE’s transparency. Essentially, audience members, by using Harmony’s explorer, will be able to see how much crypto the influencer has received from donors. The transparency offered by Harmony will enable influencers to be more trustworthy in the eyes of their audience.
Offering anonymous payments
In today’s world, privacy is a privilege. Even when it comes to payments and donations, traditional services such as banks and payment processors do not provide any confidentiality. Influencers tend to have many fans from the entire world, and it is natural to assume that some of them would like to donate privately. When sending money using PayPal, in addition to paying high fees, people totally expose their financial information. Cryptocurrencies solve this problem because they are anonymous. This is why influencers can deploy ONE donation as a private way of making a donation. It is guaranteed that some of your audience members will thank you for it.
So… how to accept ONE?
NOWPayments offers three solutions for featuring Harmony donations. Those influencers who have a website can deploy a special widget or button which will allow their patrons to donate in ONE. At the same time, those who have popular accounts on YouTube, Twitch, Instagram, or Twitter, can utilize a crypto donation link, which will take their fans to a page where they will have a chance to donate in ONE.
