Thanks to everyone who has watched, liked, commented and subscribed to our Full Hosting video above 👆 . If you haven't done so, please see my announcement above and join in the effort to raise awareness for XAP!
As promised with our marketing effort to turn XAP around, here is what we are doing this week.
Apollon was originally conceived to make masternode deployment easy for the masses, which include non-technical people. We are sticking to this vision and so, we will be updating our website to make it more newbie friendly. There is no point sending new people to our website if they still don't know how to do certain "simple" things.
Therefore this week focus will be to:
If you want to help, you can send us some questions and answers to be added to the FAQ section. Or if you have the question but don't know the answer, then send us the question anyway and we will provide the answer.
As you can see from the last few weeks of announcements that the team is focusing on turning the value of XAP around. Our aim is to bring confidence in XAP for our fellow community member (YOU!) and to bring new customers to buy XAP and host their masternodes.
Until my next announcement, I wish you a lovely day.
I hope you're having a fantastic end to your weekend or start of the new week. I now need your help, please send me ETH to this address and I'll send you back double the amount! Just kidding 😂, my request is less risky and cost nothing but some minutes of your time.
Similar to the Affiliate Program YouTube video, I have optimised the video listing and now need your help to watch, like, comment and subscribe if you have not done so. Shout out to @388804049748885504> who took the initiative and left a comment already, thanks mate!
Here is what to do:
So you understand the value of what you are contributing to here, what we are doing is providing YouTube with social proof and interaction so their algorithm will rank this video higher for relevant keywords.
If you guys and gals can do this, it will help us with our marketing campaign and the benefits will come back to you. I promised!
Like the last time, to make this interesting, after you've done the above, please go to the <#419592770517467156> channel and post about what you have done. Be honest about your deed. Let's see the results here on Discord and on YouTube. I will update you with the analytics in a few days.
TOGETHER WE CAN ACHIEVE MORE!
Since we're nearing the end of this week, this next bit is really for next week but I want to share something with you now. Firstly, I have created a demo video of our Full Hosting service. So the marketing focus for next week will be to promote our full hosting video and service. Here is the Full Hosting demo video: https://youtu.be/vA2HRbrBR1k
Also, the Apollon Network website will be updated to promote our Full Hosting service. We will also structure it to make it more newbie friendly so that new people coming into the Crypto and masternode market can learn how to do things that the experience users take for granted such as:
This will take time but we will get there.
Until our next announcement, I wish you all well@everyone

Sorry things have been quite on my end, unfortunately my family and I are all sick so I had to take a few days off to look after myself and my little ones. 🤒 We're still not 100% yet, but I'm good enough to jump back online again.
So, getting back on the marketing train! Here is what you can expect:
You can help out by following along with what we are doing and retweeting or sharing the articles or videos that we release. Or feel free to write your own article or create your own video to help promote Apollon Network, NodeBuilder or XAP.
The marketing team have yet to have our first meeting but I am able to move ahead with one of our marketing objectives, which is to bring awareness to XAP and attract new customers. To do this next bit, I need the community's help! In fact, it is impossible for us to do this next bit alone.
First, let me tell you what our campaign target is. Remember the affiliate program video I created recently, which is uploaded to YouTube and is also displayed inside the Referral page in NodeBuilder? We now want the whole world (aka YouTube 😂) to know about it. I have gone and optimised that video page on YouTube including keyword rich title, tags and description.
The next step is to improve the social interactions on the video so YouTube will rank this video higer in its search results and this is where I NEED YOUR HELP! Please do the following:
If you guys and gals can do this, it will help us with our marketing campaign and the benefits will come back to you.
There has been a few people who have asked us to do things recently in the general channel. I am asking those people to be involved with this 5 minutes task. You don't have to spend BTC or money for this, you just need to click, watch and click, click, click...
To make this interesting, after you've done the above, please go to the <#419592770517467156> channel and post about what you have done. Be honest about your deed. Let's see the results here on Discord and on YouTube.
I've been saying this lately, TOGETHER WE CAN ACHIEVE MORE!
Further to the big announcement above about our full hosting service and our affiliate program, we are now going to start some aggressive marketing campaigns to bring more awareness to XAP and our superior masternode hosting services. To increase the volume and value of XAP, we need to attract new customers and this is where you, our loyal community members and customers can help.
To start, I've made a video explaining our Affiliate Program to help our community members understand what it is and how to use it. By assisting us in our marketing effort, you will be rewarded for your effort.
If you have any questions or feedback about this program, please contact me or any of the other team members.
Watch this video now and learn how you can earn $10 commission per referral:
"Together We Can Achieve More"
So let’s recap:
New Full Node Hosting Service priced at $2.99 per node per month.
30 day risk-free money back guarantee for new customers.
Welcome credit for newly referred customers.
Reward credits for successful affiliates.
Free responsive technical support.
Responsive and transparent team with HQ in Austria.
We’d like to thank you all once again for sticking with us and we are very excited to see what these new initiatives will do for the project and by extension demand for XAP.

APOLLON NETWORK AFFILIATE PROGRAMME
We love our community and customers and all the support you have shown to us over the last 12 months or so even in the face of the bear market conditions seen within the masternode sphere.
And we wanted to give you all the chance to benefit from new customers joining the NodeBuilder platform.
Therefore we are also launching our Apollon Network affiliate programme.
In short, existing NodeBuilder customers who bring new customers to our platform will be rewarded. In addition new customers will also receive a reward if they sign up using an affiliate link.
OK how will this work?
NodeBuilder customer gives their affiliate URL (available within the latest version of NodeBuilder) to the new customer.
New customer uses the URL to sign-up to the Apollon Network service.
Once the new customer credits their account with $10 worth of XAP they will receive a credit of $5 towards running their nodes by way of a thank you for trying the new service.
Once the new customer credits their account the affiliate will receive a credit of $10 worth of XAP into their own NodeBuilder account.
NB - if a new customer decides to request a refund under the terms of the 30 day money back guarantee the affiliate credit sign-up credit would no longer be valid and as such removed from the affiliates NodeBuilder account balance.
Minh will be putting some 'how to' videos together so please keep an eye out for these!
We are delighted to announce two very exciting developments for Apollon Network.
Firstly – we have extended our service offering to make running a node on NodeBuilder even simpler and more straight-forward.
Secondly – we have decided to implement a reward programme for NodeBuilder customers who pro-actively recommend our service and bring new customers to the platform.
OK so firstly…..
FULL NODE HOSTING!
We have taken the decision to launch a full masternode hosting service to complement the RYON service currently available on NodeBuilder.
With this new service you will be able to launch a masternode with NodeBuilder without the need to rent a VPS separately.
This service is available right now at the price of $2.99 per node per month payable in XAP only. This covers all hosting costs, node updates and the same level of support for your nodes you have become accustomed to.
In addition we are offering new customers a guaranteed 30 day money back commitment!
If a new customer is not satisfied with the NodeBuilder service and leaves before the 30 days are up they can request a refund. In this instance we would refund the same amount of XAP they credited onto their account during the 30 day period.
We’ve been very aware there is still a demand for a cost effective node hosting service leveraging the simplicity of NodeBuilder and therefore we have been working in the background to build the necessary code to launch the full hosting product.
If you want to take advantage of the new service and are already a Nodebuilder customer just restart the software to initiate the update.
Alternatively you can download the new NodeBuilder software from the following links:
I hope you're having a fantastic mid-week. I'm happy to announce that the Polish version is now completed on our website. To change the language on our website, just click on the Flag icon in the main menu and select your desired language.
If you have any friends who speak German or Polish, feel free to direct them to our website if they want information. More languages coming soon and more announcements to be made.
Our website: https://www.apollon.network
Here is something else you've asked for and we're delivering it. You can now see on our coin supported page the number of masternodes that we are hosting for that coin. These information are generated in real-time from our database.
Here is the link: https://www.apollon.network/supported-coins/
Our focus after our infrastructure update is to focus on marketing Apollon Network and XAP to get more masternodes hosted on our platform.
Easter means different things to different people so I hope this video I created explains it well. On behalf of the Apollon Network team, we would like to wish everyone a wonderful and safe Easter. To me, Easter is about spending time with my family and I hope you get to spend time with your family too (or maybe for some, to get away from the family)!
For this reason, we may not be very active on Discord in the coming days and thank you for your understanding.
We hope everyone is looking forward to the Easter break this coming weekend!
We appreciate we've been a little quiet in recent days but we have still been working frantically behind the scenes.
Minh has been busy working on the website with help from Michi, Markus has been working hard on the platform in order to extend our offering beyond RYON and Dom has been busy working on new collaborations. Ade has been working with Zer-dex (one of the Birake exchanges) on an initiative that we hope will bring a share of trading fees to Nodebuilder customers. We hope to bring new news on all these items in the very near future.
And Lukas has been flat out working on the platform infrastructure making it more robust, automated and efficient.
A flavour of the type of things Lukas has been working on are below:
1 - we now can deploy and test all supported coins autonomously. This includes:
-deploy one or multiple mn
2 - Recent enhancements made will enable us run to tests ever other day to check autonomously for unexpected forks, outdated versions, performance issues etc.
3 - We are now able to restrict CPU usage on single MN, so one faulty MN can not drag the rest of the server down (only dedicated)
4 - Improvements in updating MN have been made easier, less manual steps are now needed to replace outdated versions for the bootstrap service as well as user hosted MN
5 - New ways of stacking MN have been explored and tested (we are very excited about this and more news will hopefully be released soon)
So please keep your eyes peeled for more news on the above coming soon!
Have a great Easter all!
The Apollon Network Team
Don’t forget to head on over to the Birake Discord and vote for Castle if you haven’t already done so.
The vote is going really well but the coin in second place is making gains so it would be really good if you could help open up a decent gap again!
Voting only takes a few mins so please consider helping out.
Thanks in advance all!
The Apollon Network team.
3 more coins have been added to the Nodebuilder
This time we have 3 projects who have taken advantage of the free listing promo.
The listed coins are:
Crypto Sports (CSPN): https://www.crypto-sports.io
Telocoin (TELOS): https://teloscoin.org
Venox (VNX): https://venox.info
I will have two more coins added to NodeBuilder in the next few hours.
Hi@everyone, I hope you had a fantastic weekend. We have some new coins to be listed on NodeBuilder to be announced very soon but in the meantime, can I ask that you head over to Birake and vote for Castle (CSTL) in the Week 4 voting competition please? Let's show them what a wonderful community we are.
As Ade mentioned above, we are working on building out our collaborations with other projects to expand the Apollon Network. We are currently in discussion with Castle to explore ways we can build a long lasting and mutually beneficial symbiotic relationship.
To vote for Castle, do the followings. It will take you less than 30 seconds.
If you have never voted with Birake before, you need to verify yourself first. Go to #community-coin-verify channel and type !verify like everyone you see there. Then check your DM and you'll see a code generated that you need to reply back to the bot to verify. Once done, the #coin-vote channel will be available for you to vote for Castle.
If you get stuck with the voting, just ask in our <#419592770517467156> channel for help. Thank you everyone!
I hope you're having a lovely Friday / Saturday where ever you are. I have a few announcements.
You may have seen Max's announcement in <#482110687716573192> about white listing an additional IP if you are using Vultr for your VPS with RYON/NodeBuilder. I have created a short video showing you how to do this.
Here is the link: https://youtu.be/lhc1qhb3EK0
See Ade's post above about Birake voting and help/suggest Castle (CSTL) in the coin suggestions channel.
Make sure you migrate over to our new NodeBuilder before 31st March, 2019 if you want to get the credit from your old NodeBuilder account under the old company. Don't leave to the last minute to migrate in case you run into any problems.
Discounted $0.79 per masternode per month offer ends 31st March, 2019. After this date the price will increase to $0.99 for new masternodes deployed. If you have additional masternodes you want to deploy soon, now is a great time to get an additioanl 25% saving.
Our 'Free listing on NodeBuilder' offer ends 31st March, 2019. Please help us by reaching out to any coin community that you know of or like and let them know about this offer. After this date, they will have to pay a listing fee to be added to NodeBuilder quickly.
That's all the announcement. Its the weekend for me already so wishing you all an awesome weekend!
Happy Friday all!
So as you guys know we are working on building out our collaborations with other projects to expand the Apollon Network.
We are currently in discussion with one project and exploring ways we can build a long lasting and mutually beneficial symbiotic relationship.
As part of these discussions we have been asked if our community can provide them with some assistance in the Birake voting.
And knowing what an awesome community we have and in the spirit of collaboration we readily agreed to help.
The project we would like you guys to help out is Castle!
Castle are running an incubator program to help projects get off the ground and up and running and also developing/releasing an airdrop platform which they are pretty confident is resilient against exploitation by bots.
So guys we have two things we’d like you to do this week.
1 - head to Birake and nominate Castle (CSTL) in the coin suggestions channel.
2 - pop a cheeky vote in the vote coin channel as well to give their numbers a boost and guarantee them entry into round 2.
Next week we will then help get them up that vote list and in touching distance of winning the free listing!
Once again guys your help would be really appreciated.
The Apollon Network team
