Right, Right and Right. They blame the market crash and under funding. Neglecting to admit a smoke and mirrors project, using the Kodak name licensed, promising us something invisible and asking buyers to use coins instead of money. Whether crypto currency will make it in 5 years or 10 or 20, the plan was mostly and answer to a question that no one asked and a solution that didn't hold water.

Seems the link wasn't posted, so I thought maybe some would like reading the market speak and selling points that are nothing but vapor.

Lets stop believing in these new agencies that will change something or disrupt the industry or are the next big thing.

Leaf, you might move Wemark to agencies that no longer exist?  ;)

Wemark had no connection with Kodak, that was another one that didn't get off the ground.

Thanks for the correction and making the accurate point.

Oops, and wow, came out around the same time, I confabulated them into one. Sure Wemarks and their white paper and all the promotions, I mixed into the Kodak thing and the promise of how bitcoin would protect our rights.

But as long as the gadget business stays this wide-open and this potentially lucrative, youre going to keep seeing dubious propositions like Spotlites bitcoin-mining deal. When you see them, just remember to ask one simple question: Whats the actual problem youre trying to solve here?

I don't doubt something new will come and disrupt the market....its inevitable in all industries...if I knew what and when I would be living on a Bond style villa on a caribbean island.

True, but Microstock is the thing that disrupted the photo market.  ;D

I just went and looked at my Etherium account, sad, sad, sad. No worse than some of the stocks I bought in the last four years. 1 in 4 went up, speculation in crypto currency mining, -97%, rail -99%, Mfg company -51%, and Ferrari which was reviewed as over valued... up 200% They don't know, they are just writers.

If the people writing the investment columns were so in tune and informed, they wouldn't be writing investment columns, they would be "living on a Bond style villa on a caribbean island.".  :)

and then there is all the sites distributing copyright-free images trying their best to disrupt microstock.  Canva could well be their champion.

We believe everyone should have access to great design ingredients for their visuals; this is why free content will always play a central role in Canvas vision of democratising design. Together with Pexels and Pixabay, well be able to help people discover a whole new world of amazing, fresh content. With over 1 million images downloaded over 500 million times on their platforms combined, both Pexels and Pixabay have proven that there is a huge demand for free quality content from small businesses, social media marketers and others not just from designers and companies with big budgets, shared Perkins.

Pexels cofounder Ingo Joseph said, Theres a lot of synergy between Canva and Pexels;  its a perfect match. No other design platform truly believes in the mission of empowering the world with design and providing free stock content that is central to their mission like Canva. Todays announcement signifies a huge step forward in the right direction. Were on our way to put an end to cheesy stock photos and open the doors to more authentic, trending content for free.

Pixabay cofounder Hans Braxmeier added, The vision of Pixabay is to become the Wikipedia for free media. Therefore, community has always been our core focus and a testament to our continued success at Pixabay. We knew right from the start that we wanted to expose our talented contributors to highly engaged audience and showcase their work. We also knew that we wanted to empower creators who are hungry for content sourced from all around the globe this is why were thrilled to partner with Canva to continue on our mission of revolutionising the free stock media space.

I bet Ms Perkins is thumbing through her Caribbean Islands for Sale catalogue as we speak.

They were so lost and convoluted that I never got around to uploading anything, but I confess, I tried.  ;D
