Something Big Is About To Change The Alternative Media Community
Steve St Angelo

To all the precious metals, resource and alternative media followers and investors…. something BIG is about to change in our community.  This change will have a very powerful and positive impact on the Alternative Media Community, while at the same time, disrupting the control by the mainstream media.

So what is this BIG CHANGE?  Let me say it in just three words…. CDX IS COMING.

Before I explain what the CDX is, let me share with you some information about the SRSrocco Report site and the alternative media community’s challenge in trying to get the message out to the public.  Before the internet, the mainstream media controlled most of all the television, newspaper and advertising information that reached the public.  However, when the internet started to grow and digital media became the new thing, the old media of newspapers, magazines and TV news started to wither and die.  Thus, the new digital internet gave the alternative media a chance to finally get its message out.

Unfortunately, the entities that controlled the “old news” moved into the internet and now control the “digital news.”  This has made it very difficult for individuals such as myself to get the alternative message out to the public.  Which means, the alternative media is still fighting the same battle in the digital internet world.

Alternative Media Bloggers, Analysts and Content Creators Getting Financially Hurt

Now… to make matters even worse, bloggers, analysts and content creators in the alternative media, who have been making money by putting ads on their sites utilizing one of the largest ad networks in the world, have seen their monthly ad income decline or plummet in many instances.  This has been mainly focused in the large video producing market, but is also impacting alternative websites as well.

For example, traffic on the SRSrocco Report site continues to increase, but my ad revenue has fallen considerably.  I have spoken to many other websites and video producers who experiencing the very same thing.  So, what is happening here is that the mainstream media and largest ad network in the world are SUPPRESSING the alternative media message.  By cutting the alternative blogger, analyst and content creator income, they are destroying  the incentive to put out the message. Basically, we are being bled to death… monetarily speaking.

Unfortunately, there are no real viable alternatives to the largest ad network in the world…. so we continue to try other ways to make up for falling ad revenues.  Some sites try other ways to bring in additional funds they lost from declining ad revenue, while others simply cut back on publishing content and articles.  Unfortunately some websites, just wither and die.

Now, some readers may believe this is a Grand Conspiracy by the Elite to suppress the alternative media message (probably true to some degree), but it just may be due to plain ole business.  Many advertisers don’t want their ads placed on alternative sites because they either have a major difference of opinion or that they don’t believe their ads would do well there.  So, by reducing a percentage of advertisers to the alternative media bloggers, analysts and content creators, it CUTS THEIR INCOME considerably.

Alright… I imagine some of my followers or folks who read my articles from other sites are wondering what has this to do with them.  I get it… some of you (maybe a lot) don’t really care about all of this… and that is fine.  However, the current large ad network system keeps alternative media followers from finding out new interesting sites.

For example, I continue to come across new alternative sites who have been up and running for years that I never knew they existed.  The Commodity Ad Network explained below will allow alternative media followers to discover new sites and valuable information they never knew existed.

And, additionally, the large ad network also collects all of your search history and pre-determines what’s good for you personally. So when you and I search for the same keywords, we both get served different results. And those search results also determine what ads you see in those ad boxes everywhere. This way, they keep everyone in a personalized bubble.

THE SOLUTION:  CDX Will Revolutionize The Alternative Media

Okay.. now that some of you are interested or curious in what a CDX is, I will explain.  It is a crypto-currency (token) called the CDX Token that will totally REVOLUTIONIZE the alternative community.  It is a new Ad Network that will be outside and separate from the largest ad network in the world, which will greatly benefit all aspects of the alternative community.

Simply put… the Commodity Ad Network will provide content creator websites that join, 2-3 times more ad revenue than they are receiving from the largest ad network in the world and advertisers that join will get a much bigger bang for their buck.

The brains behind this new Ad Network is my webmaster, Peter Fröhlich.  While Peter has done an excellent job making the SRSrocco Report site successful, he has been working on this ad network project for years.  Peter started working on this project because his previous business was negatively impacted by this large ad network as he could no longer compete with larger advertisers when promoting his business.  Thus, the small and medium sized businesses or advertisers using the largest ad network in the world, basically were outbid.  Which meant, they began to wither and die just as the alternative bloggers, analysts and content creators are now.

I sat down with Peter and he explained the CDX Token and the new Revolutionary Commodity Ad Network in the interview below.  I would appreciate my followers and readers to really consider listening to the interview.  Your understanding of the alternative media community’s negative predicament with the current large ad network and our solution could really help us all get the message out:

If you listen to the interview above, Peter explains how bloggers, analysts and content creators as well as Advertisers and followers of the alternative media community will benefit from the new Commodity Ad Network.

The Commodity Ad Network will include these kinds of websites and content creators:

  • precious metals research
  • precious metals analysis
  • oil and energy research
  • oil and energy analysis
  • forex and financial commentary
  • chartists
  • preppers
  • authors outspoken against TPTB
  • alternative news and media

How Do Content Creators Benefit:

Now, this list doesn’t include everyone, but it gives a good idea of the type of sites that will be a part of the Commodity Ad Network.  Those alternative bloggers, analysts and content creators that join the Commodity Ad Network, will receive 2-3 times what they are receiving from the large ad network currently.  To get an idea (estimation) of what a content creator would receive from being apart of the Commodity Ad Network, look at the figures below:

Revenue Approximation

Breakdown of approximate revenues for content creators according to their Alexa ranking:

  • Each blog near 50k … $9818.47 USD / month
  • Each blog near 100k … $4207.91 USD / month
  • Each blog near 250k … $2103.96 USD / month
  • Each blog near 500k … $420.79 USD / month
  • Each blog near 1m … $70.13 USD / month

NOTE:  The lower the ranking (example 50K versus 500K in world) the higher the traffic.

Again… this is an approximation of monthly income.  Furthermore, the first 300 content creators that the  Commodity Ad Network signs a deal with, will receive a $1,000 sign on bonus. In designing the this new Ad Network, Peter wanted to make sure that a larger percentage of the advertising dollar went to the hard working content creators rather than more of if it ending up in one of the largest corporations in the world that is currently keeping track of everything we do.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  anyone running a website and publishing content is a content creator.

How Do Advertisers Benefit:

Now, how does the Commodity Ad Network benefit the advertiser?  Advertisers from relevant niche markets who join the Commodity Ad Network will be targeting their ads directly to the alternative community websites.  Thus, their ads will be reaching the very individuals who are interested in their products or services.  Furthermore, advertisers will have their ads displayed on number of various alternative websites which will actually build their brand awareness, rather than the paid for click ads that are not really generating the success rate they were promised.

Further advantages:

  • stable and dedicated user base
  • minimum ad blocking and much easier to convince website visitors to whitelist ads related to the topic they are reading on their favorite blogs
  • privacy first — we don’t log IP addresses or track the online behavior of our visitors and we also never sell any information about our visitors to anyone, ever
  • vertical approach instead of horizontal approach, i.e. preferring niche markets, not a serve all with the same ads logic
  • we are a small company, so we actually have time (and take time) to know our customers and cater to their real campaigning needs
  • we believe that there will be a commodity rally before the decade is over and we want to be the leaders in the commodity ad segment supporting that rally
  • we offer more meaningful pricing than the industry standard bidding mechanism
  • we keep up an advantageous rate of advertisers to content creators

How Do Website Visitors Benefit:

Okay…. how does this Commodity Ad Network benefit the visitors or followers of the alternative media? First… the Commodity Ad Network is 100% Private.  There is no collection or tracking of visitors IP addresses.  Thus, there is no collection and selling of a visitors metadata to corporations or governments. Second…. as I mentioned earlier in the post, the largest ad network tracks your search history and pre-determines what is best for you.  By tailoring your web searches, the largest ad network keeps us in a personalized bubble.  However, the Commodity Ad Network will not be affected by this, which means visitors will be able to access new sites and information more readily than they did before.

How Does the Global Community Benefit:

The biggest problem individuals and those running websites have is getting the alternative media message out to more of the public.  Bloggers, analysts and content creators who are apart of the Commodity Ad Network will be compensated more for their efforts… thus they will be more motivated to spread their message to a larger percentage of the alternative community and public. Lastly…. should the Commodity Ad Network become successful, the demand for the CDX tokens will increase.  As demand for the CDX tokens increases, by adding more content creators and advertisers, the value of the token will likely rise in value.  This would likely benefit those who participate directly in the Ad Network as well as holders of CDX tokens.

What Exactly Is The CDX Token?

The Network token (ticker symbol CDX) is a smart contract based upon the Ethereum blockchain.  It will be the lifeblood of the Commodity Ad Network.  However, a big plus of the CDX token is that it will not only be traded along with other crypto-currencies, it will also be a functioning token used in the Commodity Ad Network market.

Let me explain.  The CDX token will be used as payment to content creators as well as by advertisers who choose to purchase ads directly with tokens rather than in cash.  Here are a few charts describing how the CDX token will be used:

Advertiser Pays In Cash

Here the advertiser pays cash, which is converted to CDX tokens and is then paid to the content creators.  Content Creators can then exchange CDX tokens for Dollars (or etc) on the exchange.

Advertiser Pays In CDX tokens

In this selection, the advertiser can purchase CDX tokens which are then used pay the content creators.  By the advertiser choosing this method of payment, they will be able to get their ads into the network faster as there are no bank delays or fees in dealing with bank transfers and etc.

Content Creator Promotes Own Site

The ability of the content creator to promote his or her site is the second best reason to join the Commodity Ad Network after the first, which is being paid 2-3 times what the largest ad network is paying.  The Commodity Ad Network will make available a small percentage of ad spaces in the network in which content creators can place ads to promote their sites.

NOTE:  When content creators receive CDX tokens, they can exchange them for Dollars or other currencies on the exchange.

Furthermore, content creators will be offered a much better rate (50% of standard rates) to promote their sites if they choose to do so.  Actually, I would jump at the opportunity to promote the SRSrocco Report site on this network.  If I am receiving 2-3 times more money, I could afford to spend a few hundred dollars or etc to promote my site.

And…. more visitors coming to my site means traffic will increase.  Thus, more traffic would generate a higher amount of ad revenue from the Ad Network.

The CDX Token ICO – Initial Coin Offering:  August 26th 2017

To fund the Commodity Ad Network, there will be an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) of the CDX token that will take place on August 26th, 2 pm London time that will run for a maximum of five days.  There will be 120 million CDX tokens created, however 90 million will be available during the ICO on August 26th.  The remaining 30 million CDX tokens (25%) will be kept as company equity with the anticipation that the asset value will rise in the future.

I don’t want to get into too many details here, but those who decide to participate in the CDX token ICO on the first day, (August 26th) will receive 25% more tokens for free.  Those who participate the next day will receive 10% more tokens for free and 5% more tokens on the third day.  During the last two days, no additional free tokens will be offered.

The value of the CDX token will be based upon this ratio:  (1) ETH- Ethereum = (300) CDX tokens.

How The Business Unfolds After The CDX ICO

After the CDX token ICO on August 26th, which we believe will be successful, the Commodity Ad Network business plan goes into effect.  There is a detailed explanation here: Commodity Ad Network Business Plan, but I will lay out a brief timeline.

September 2017:  Selection of staff.

November 2017:  Content creators signed on and sign-on bonuses paid out, live testing of network begins.

December 2017:  First deals with advertisers are signed and the CDX token is listed on exchanges.  Trading of the CDX token begins.

January 1st 2018:  Content creators who signed contracts are now added to the Commodity Ad Network.  The ad network goes live with advertisers ads.

February 2018:  Content creators receive their first monthly ad revenue.

Conclusion… My Comments & Contact Information

Many visitors who follow my work and read this post are probably wondering why I would get involved with something tied to a crypto-currency.  As I mentioned in several articles, my initial understanding of crypto-currencies were based upon incorrect assumptions and listening to those who really didn’t have an in-depth grasp of this new technology.

While many (or most) of the crypto-currencies being traded on the market currently, will likely not be around in the next five years…. however, I believe some will.  Some of these crypto-currencies are providing a new technology that could make the current Fiat Banking System obsolete in the next several years.  Seriously, this crypto-currency technology could be that disruptive.

I have spoken to some folks who have heard through the grapevine that crypto-currencies backed by gold and or silver may be used as a means to by-pass the current fiat monetary system.  This is why we are starting to see articles stating that the Fed and Central Banks are terrified by the new crypto-currency market.  Basically, this technology would destroy their control.

That being said, I am still a FIRM BELIEVER in owning GOLD and SILVER.  Nothing has changed my mind on that issue, even though I see merit in some of the crypto-currencies.  Furthermore, I still believe there will be a huge disruption to the economy and markets as the U.S. and global oil industry disintegrates over the next 5-10 years.

Understanding this….. I believe it is in the best interest of those participating in the Alternative Community, to continue putting the word out.  This Commodity Ad Network will allow alternative bloggers, analysts and content creators more well deserved compensation for getting their message out to a Slarger percentage of the public.

Of course, we don’t know how the future will unfold, but taking a positive step in providing more benefits to those in the Alternative Media Community TODAY is a BIG PLUS in my book.

Check back for new articles and updates at the SRSrocco Report.


Independent researcher Steve St. Angelo (SRSrocco) started to invest in precious metals in 2002. Later on in 2008, he began researching areas of the gold and silver market that, curiously, the majority of the precious metal analyst community have left unexplored. These areas include how energy and the falling EROI – Energy Returned On Invested – stand to impact the mining industry, precious metals, paper assets, and the overall economy.

Steve considers studying the impacts of EROI one of the most important aspects of his energy research. For the past several years, he has written scholarly articles in some of the top precious metals and financial websites.

You can find many of Steve’s articles on noteworthy sites, such as GoldSeek-SilverSeek, Market Oracle, Financial Sense,, SilverDoctors, TFMetals Report, Outsiderclub, SGTreport, BrotherJohnF, Hartgeld, Der-klare-blick, PeakProsperity, SilverStrategies, DollarCollapse, FurtureMoneyTrends, Sharpspixley, FinancialSurvivalNetwork, Pmbull, Deviantinvestor, PmBug, Wealthwire, and ZeroHedge.
