Kittycoin Token – Is it Dogecoin 2.0? Why Kittycoin is set to Skyrocket in 2021 

Just like Dogecoin, Kittycoin is a fun meme-based cryptocurrency that recently came into play in the cryptocurrency market. While its main aim is to promote fast, cheap, and reliable yet safe online transactions, Kittycoin also contributes a great deal to philanthropy. The Kittycoin website has a range of crypto wallet applications alongside their set-up tutorials. As such, in case you want to use Kittycoin, you'll first need to download a crypto wallet that is compatible with your device. Some of the benefits of the Kittycoin token include:

No Charges for Entry

Unlike most other cryptocurrencies that charge a sign-up fee, Kittycoin allows you to get started without paying a dime. This not only caters to prospective users who can't afford a starting fee but also promotes mainstream user adoption of this cryptocurrency.

Free Tokens for Every New User

Apart from a free sign-up, Kittycoin also offers you about 1000 tokens at no cost once you get started. With these tokens, you can start conducting online transactions, mining, and even investing. Take note that this offer is only valid until Kittycoin gains a substantial number of users. Additionally, the number of tokens will be reducing as more users sign up for Kittycoin, and hence, signing up early will give you an advantage.
Supports Animals

Through mining, investment, and transactions, Kittycoin gains a new supply of tokens, 10% of which goes to philanthropic activities. More specifically, this portion is donated to animal shelters and rescues that are voted upon by Kittycoin users. It helps both abandoned animals in shelters as well as endangered species in animal parks and reserves. From this, more animals get to enjoy a safe and conducive environment.

Fast and Affordable Transactions

Kittycoin offers fast, cheap, and safe online transactions to its users. To give you an idea, you can complete a transaction instantly and only incur less than a penny.

Affiliate Marketing Program

Typically, marketing is crucial for any business, including cryptocurrency investment. Even so, marketing Kittycoin is a bit difficult considering there's no single entity that controls it. To solve this problem, Kittycoin has a built-in affiliate marketing program that allows you to invite your friends and earn 1000 Kittycoin tokens worth of a commission for every successful referral. This promotes mainstream user adoption of this cryptocurrency.

Mining is Possible with Readily Available Equipment

Cryptocurrency mining involves the use of special equipment that can burn a lot of electricity to provide the high processing power required. This can be expensive, especially if you're just starting. Considering low electricity costs can help maximize your profits on cryptocurrency, per the Corporate Finance Institute (CFI), ensure your equipment does not use a lot of power. Thankfully, Kittycoin has a "Proof of Activity" mining method that allows you to mine Kittycoins with your PC or phone. This way, you won't have to incur high costs of purchasing special mining equipment.

Conclusion

These are some of the benefits of the Kittycoin token in the cryptocurrency market as well as the society. With a compatible crypto wallet, you simply need to sign up at no cost to join the Kittycoin community.

Trump Supporter Rapper Bestowed With “Kodak Black Day” In Florida

Florida is going to Florida, on all levels. Trump-supporting rapper Kodak Black was just honored with “Kodak Black Day” in the Sunshine State.

A TMZ reports, June 11 is now Kodak Black Day in Broward County.

Broward County Commissioner Dale Holness presented Kodak with the proclamation, stating June 11 will forever be known as a day honoring the rapper.

Holness bestowed the honor on Kodak Friday at a charity basketball tourney in Coral Springs.

Kodak was clearly moved, saying the proclamation means more to him than any platinum album.  The proclamation lists some of Kodak’s charitable work and personal accomplishments over the last few years.

The basketball tournament raised $5k to benefit the Lippman Youth Shelter.

Hey, we can’t be mad at the charity work (the proclamation give him props for his myriad of donations that include diapers, turkeys, and toys), so kudos for that.

Recently, he pleaded guilty to first-degree assault in sexual assault case he was facing in South Carolina and managed to duck a possible 10-year sentence, which has been suspended. He is currently on probation because of it, though.

As for rocking with Donald Trump, Kodak has been extra grateful to the Orange Overload since he pardoned the rapper at the end of his one term as POTUS. The rapper served about two years of a 46-month sentence for federal firearms charges.

But don’t expect Trump to donate to any of the causes Kodak has been getting props for since they won’t be benefitting him in anyway, just saying.

 

 

Pooh Shiesty To Remain Behind Bars After Judge Revokes His Bond [Video]

One of Hip-Hop’s rising stars might not have the bright future he had hoped for. A judge has revoked Pooh Shiesty’s bond thus mandating him to remain in jail.

Things are not looking good for the New 1017 Records talent. On Tuesday, June 8 the “Back In Blood” rapper surrendered himself to court to face charges that claim he participated in a shooting at the King Of Diamonds gentlemen’s club in Miami during Memorial Day weekend. He faced Judge Venzer, the same magistrate he saw for his 2020 shooting case, who apparently did not take this second appearance lightly as she did the first. She is quoted as saying “there is not a chance I am giving this kid a bond right now”. She also mandated that he stay away from KOD as well. In the court appearance he is shown wearing a green jail gown which is commonly associated with Miami Dade County inmates who are suicidal.

The man born Lontrell Williams is accused of shooting a security guard in the leg as he was trying to exit the establishment on May 30. Video footage later surfaced on Instagram showing in what seems to be a tense situation between him and fans while on stage. The clip claims someone swiped about $40,000 dollars from his pants pocket while at the club but he later denied the rumor saying “FALSE ALLEGATIONS NOTHING NEVER BEEN TOOK FROM ME” he wrote in the caption.

If convicted he could face 20 years if convicted.

We at Hip-Hop Wired pride ourselves on being fully immersed in the music of the culture we rep proudly. Part of our duty as a publication and crew is to school the masses on who is doing what musically and there’s no better way to do that beyond our CRT FRSH (Certified Fresh) bi-weekly playlist.

We open up this week’s playlist with the Migos marking their return with Culture III, and the Drake-assisted “Having Our Way” track, which caught some ears for reasons that have already been documented time and again. We follow that with the return of Tina Snow aka Megan Thee Stallion and her high-powered summer anthem “Thot Sh*t” and we added Kodak’s “Feelin’ Peachy” from his Happy Birthday Kodak project.

We then take it to Memphis with Gucci Mane and Pooh Shiesty showing off definitive chemistry on “Like 34 & 8,” a clever nod to Shaquille O’Neal and the late, great Kobe Bryant. Lil Durk and Lil Baby’s Voice Of The Heroes recently dropped and the title track shows off how great these two legends in the making sound together. We also want to give Lil Yachty a strong shout for taking it to Michigan and tapping in with the state’s rising talent and matching the manic style of Detroit’s Tee Grizzley on the track “Dynamic Duo” from the Michigan Boy Boat project.

We also feature CRT FRSH past inductees such as Chris Crack, frequent collaborator U.G.L.Y. Boy Modeling, L.A.Z (formerly of Clear Soul Forces), DirtyDiggs, Skyzoo, IDK, GoldLink, French Montana, Rome Streetz, ANKLEJOHN, Akai Solo, Mavi, Sideshow, Fly Anakin, and many more.

Outside All Summer: Dr. Dre Is Officially A Single Man 

Dr. Dre

It seems one of Dr. Dre’s biggest projects is finally complete. His divorce to his long-time wife is finally complete.

As spotted on TMZ the legendary producer officially has formally ended his marriage to Nicole Young. According to the celebrity news site the judge presiding over their case has approved the break up thus legally ending their marriage of almost 25 years. While we are sure that Dre took the judgement as good news this is far from the end of his battle with his child’s mother.

This recent decision only speaks to their legal separation but does not conclude their prenuptial agreement woes. According to Nicole she signed the papers prior to their holy union but she alleges the Compton rapper had tore up it in front of her after forcing her to sign it. “Andre acknowledged to me that he felt ashamed he had pressured me into signing a premarital agreement and he tore up multiple copies of the agreement in front of me. Since the day he tore up the agreements, we both understood that there was no premarital agreement, and that it was null and void” is her side of the story. But Andre claims he never coerced her to sign it nor did he ever tear up any of the copies.

The pending decision will not only give rule on whether Nicole gets a prenuptial payout but also who gets what in terms of their joint real estate properties. Dre is represented by the same lawyer who is handling Kim Kardashian’s divorce from Kanye West.
