Free TON

Hackernoon & Free TON Partnership proposal

Introduction:

Hacker Noon is built for technologists to read, write, and publish. We are an open and international community of 19k+ contributing writers publishing stories and expertise for 2M+ curious and insightful monthly readers.

We built our site from the ground up. In July 2019, we removed the Medium content management system from our site and launched our own publishing platform. Overnight, Hacker Noon became not only a publishing company but also a software company.​

We built (and continue to build) the Hacker Noon platform:

  • For readers to enjoy access to the highest quality, evergreen, and topical tech content—paywall and pop-up-free;
  • For writers to elevate their own voices with the support of our team of human editors to review, improve, publish, and distribute their words online;
  • For sponsors to make a positive and potentially profitable impression on tech’s most influential and innovative minds

Why Hacker Noon?

Accreditation - Instead of submitting as faceless ‘Bob’, ‘Ben’, or a ‘Michael’, own your Brand’s voice on Hacker Noon.

Validation - Over 60% of submissions to Hacker Noon get rejected. If you cross this chasm, you’ve earned the rights to brag about it

Exposure - Once we hit the ‘Publish’ button on a story, it gets distributed via email, across multiple tags, social media channels, RSS, text-to-voice podcast, websites, and more

Key Facts:

  • (200+)+ stories published weekly
  • 2M+ unique visitors per month
  • (5M)+ page views per month
  • 46% + mobile app users
  • 100% organic traffic
  • (1) daily and (3) weekly newsletters with (65k+)K+ subscribers

New Readers added last month.

Hackernoon formats:

  • Corporate blog
  • Tech news release
  • Newsletter
  • Target niche marketing
  • Sidewise takeover
  • Podcasts
  • Interviews
  • Experts attraction

Free TON and Hackernoon partnership
