Do you like to share your pictures online? Do you ever want each of these “likes” to make you real money? Try Relica, an image sharing application from Bitcoin SV (BSV) that lets you turn image sharing on social networks into real income – without having to advertise products or look for sponsors.
Services such as Relica are only possible with blockchains such as BSV. Its ability to handle thousands of cheap and fast micropayments means that it can get a few cents for each action. With a large enough audience, you can use Relic like anything from side income to full-time employment.
As a bonus, you retain full ownership and rights to all images you create and publish. If someone ever “steals” your work, you can prove that it was your first – thanks to the BTC blockchain.
Unlike some other image-sharing applications, Relica works just as well on a mobile and desktop computer. It’s aimed more at mobile users, but it’s nice to have a choice – especially if you use a computer application to edit your photos.
How to register and use Relica
The first time you visit Relica.world, the usual “Sign-up / Login” page will appear. Click and the two options are “Login with Money Button” or “Create Account”.
Because Relica only works with the Money Button payment system at this stage (more wallets will come later), you will need a Money Button account to move on.
The interface is pretty intuitive from here, and if you’ve used Instagram before, it won’t be hard to figure out what it’s all about.
The button in the settings in the upper right corner of the home screen provides you with a link to invite others to join (if they register, you will receive a 50% share of their earnings).
There’s also a one-click payment toggle switch – so you can mark a post as “Like” or “Comment” without having to use the Money Button each time.
The “profile” button at the bottom right will take you to your own profile page. Click “Edit Profile” to add personal information, such as your bio and profile picture. The star icon next to your bio is a link to Favorites – once you add it to your favorites, it will appear here.
Now back to the home page. It’s also quite simple. If you haven’t followed anyone yet, you’ll see a grid of the latest / most popular posts to help you get started. Click on the image and the options are like like (heart), comment (bubble) or favorite (asterisk). Click on the name to get to the profile page, click on the big Follow button to indicate if you like what they do.
How to publish an image
To post an image, click the + button in the center at the bottom of the page. Click the larger + button to upload an image from your phone or computer, comment on it (Relica supports hashtags, so insert a few to give your posts more reach) and click “publish”.
To enhance, filter, or edit your photos, you must do so before uploading them to Relica.
The bell icon (second from bottom right) is a notification of your activity. It has two tabs: Activity Log (who liked or commented on your posts) and Receipt (to see how much money you earned from activity on your posts, new followers, and referrals). There is also a running total that shows how much you have earned since your connection.
Below is how much it costs to use Relica and how much you can earn:
- Photo post: 1 cent
- Follow someone: 10 cents (user receives 8 cents)
- Like post: 3 cents (poster receives 2 cents)
- Add post to your favorites list: 3 cents (image will receive 2 cents)
- Post comment: 2 cents (picture will receive 1 cent)
