Selling ads has been a part of the project plan, although not disclosed earlier. It is one of the ways for STHC to sustain itself.
All the profits earned from advertisements will be given back to the STHC community via various paths. For example, we will open raffles in which you will receive fiat money or Bitcoin (if lucky). Hopefully, such programs will attract more people to join the STHC community, which will generate more advertisement incomes. In turn, more profits will be distributed to the community. With the cycles feeding themselves, the value of STHC will keep increasing and STHC will grow stronger and stronger.
Hence, please support the project by bearing with the ads. After all, you will benefit from it significantly.
As for the ad content, we have chosen the cleanest possible ones that we can. If the content seems offensive to you, we apologize in advance. If you know better ad networks, please let us know.
At this point, all ads are from affiliate programs. No income will be generated as commission unless the visitors take some actions (e.g. to purchase or subscribe). It will take a large enough number of visits (probably at the level of millions per month) to have any meaningful profit. At this point, we are focusing on building the community so that we can cross the line. So far, the progress has been great. Join us and make the momentum even stronger.
Thank you for your cooperation. Let us grow together.
