VANCOUVER, British Columbia and AMSTERDAM, April 18, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Blockmate Ventures Inc (TSX.V: MATE) (FSE: 8MH1) (OTCQB: MATEF) ("Blockmate" or the "Company"), is pleased to announce that its 100% owned subsidiary Hivello has beta launched an innovative application that enables an addressable market of more than 100 million internet users to earn up to US$20 per month in passive income, simply by contributing their idle computing resources.
Hivello is an application that users can download on their phone or computer, and with one-click instantly run automated Web3 software in the background that pays passive income in their local currency on a monthly basis.
Blockmate Ventures CEO Justin Rosenberg commented, “Hivello is an innovative passive income generator which has the potential to gather global momentum very quickly. The opportunity for internet users to generate $20 a month from their unique IP address, in minutes, without any technical expertise is revolutionary. With Hivello being the bridge between the millions of target users and the growing number of Web3 protocols, Hivello is well placed to reach for the millions in recurring, high margin revenue targeted by its founders.”

Hivello users contribute resources such as hard disk space, bandwidth, or computer processing power to decentralized Web3 projects like Mysterium or Sia, while earning passive income. The application seamlessly acts as an orchestrator, arranging and optimizing the user's resources for maximum efficiency and reward, while contributing to the growth of the decentralized ecosystem. Hivello earns a margin of all revenue generated through the platform.

Andrew Smith, CEO of Hivello, commented, "The launch of Hivello is a game changer for Web3 infrastructure, empowering a broad range of users to participate in the decentralized ecosystem. We estimate that an old laptop from 2015 can generate $20 a month worth of tokens. More tech-savvy users might utilize a $40 Raspberry Pi to do the same for a quick return on investment."
Smith added, "The experienced team behind Hivello has a proven track record of success in the blockchain and cryptocurrency sectors. We are confident that Hivello will accelerate the adoption of Web3 projects where mass adoption of Hivello is achievable based on the millions of people around the world that have an unused computer gathering dust, or even a newer computer that can be left on overnight to passively grow a crypto portfolio."
Hivello is currently invite-only for the beta launch but a full commercial launch is planned at Bitcoin Miami, the world’s largest cryptocurrency conference in May 2023 which will include a global marketing drive to draw attention to the opportunity for users to generate passive income through Hivello from their existing computers. In the meantime, users can sign up for the waitlist at hivello.io to be notified when the app becomes available to the public.

As of April 2023, the combined market capitalization of prominent DePIN protocols exceeded US$12 billion, reflecting a 42% YoY increase . Hivello's platform is well-positioned to capitalize on this growth and drive further adoption of Web3 technologies.
