The goal of this proposal is to secure funding for our media outlet, Anti-Media, while delivering effective, large-scale, censorship-proof branding and marketing for SmartCash.
“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”

Hello SmartHive, we’re Anti-Media
Much like cryptocurrencies, Anti-Media was born from the internet to disrupt the mainstream paradigm of centralization and control. As young people began to ask questions online about the status quo, we found a home in anti-establishment millennial circles that were looking for explanations of why the world is the way it is. Since we started as a non-partisan Facebook meme page in 2013, Anti-Media has grown into a leader in digital independent media, reaching over 12 million people every month. Our founder, Nick Bernabe, started the company after witnessing widespread shortcomings in politics and media during the U.S. elections in 2012. He had the the hope of challenging official narratives and injecting alternative voices into the conversations that shape our world. Five years later, Anti-Media is one of the most trusted and well-known brands in the industry.
Our hard-hitting, non-sensationalized content is not only shared throughout our own network of two million+ followers but is also syndicated across hundreds of independent media websites and has been featured on and sourced by mainstream outlets such as Newsweek, Huffington Post, Drudge Report, and Yahoo. Our content is also regularly shared by Ron Paul’s outlets. Our incredible team of writers, researchers, and editors features some of the most influential personalities in the liberty community, including Carey Wedler, Derrick Broze, Josie Wales, and Nick Bernabe.
Much like our team, our sizable following is made up of largely anti-establishment millennials who value freedom and decentralization. This is a perfect match for SmartCash.
SmartCash Sponsorship Proposal
In the same way SmartCash seeks to disrupt the centralized financial system, Anti-Media seeks to disrupt the centralized media and information model. As SmartCash promotes freedom through decentralization and innovation, Anti-Media publishes content promoting the values of freedom and decentralization in everyday life by covering both threats to these values as well as developments that help to protect and nurture them. That is why we believe SmartCash sponsoring Anti-Media would be an ideal, mutually beneficial, and timely match for the visions of our organizations — especially as large ad networks continue to ban crypto advertising.
If SmartCash sponsors Anti-Media, our organizations will both thrive through this innovative new way to fund media and advertise cryptocurrencies.
What are we asking for?
To accomplish all we set out to do with this sponsorship, we are requesting:
-SmartCash banner ads will be placed in our content.
-Social media content (viral in many cases) would be branded with SmartCash.
-Anti-Media podcast sponsored by SmartCash
-Approximately 6 million+ impressions per month for the SmartCash brand. (Many ads on websites generate $10 CPM, which is $10 per 1,000 impressions. We’re offering a conservative estimate of 6 million impressions, which would be valued at $60,000 per month by this metric, providing extraordinary value.)
How the funds would be spent (monthly estimates)
*Fluctuations in the price of SMART will be either absorbed by Anti-Media if the price goes down or put toward increasing traffic and impressions (marketing) if the price goes up. In the event of a dramatic change in SMART value, the amounts could be renegotiated in a new proposal.
Thanks for taking the time to read our proposal, SmartHive! We look forward to working together to bring cryptocurrency and blockchain to the masses.
