Beta version of HOQU Affiliate App is available now!

Try it out!

HOQU is the first of its kind decentralized platform for affiliate marketing created on the basis of the Ethereum blockchain. An API has been implemented for interaction with the platform, which is currently available on GitHub .

In the blockchain explorer we can view the data from the decentralized registry, on the Dashboard we see a list of events, and also in the explorer there are such entities as information about users of the system, companies, leads, trackers, and offers.

Beta version

And now we would like to demonstrate the beta version of the decentralized affiliate application within the framework of the Affiliate Marketing Software on the HOQU platform.

Under the link https://login.hoqu.com/ the user gets to the page of choosing the application that they will be working with:

  • Affiliate (platform participants, engaged in sales of call setup leads for merchants)
  • Merchant (under development)
  • Network (under development)

After selecting an application, new users enter the page, where they can choose the way of authorization and registration. Currently registration is available for:

  • Ethereum wallet through the Metamask plugin.
  • Private key. For authorization, you must use the Private Key from the existing Ethereum wallet.
  • Create HOQU wallet. The HOQU system will create a wallet for the user in the Ethereum blockchain system and give the user the Private Key from the wallet, which he can later use for authorization.
Important! The HOQU platform is implemented on the Ethereum blockchain system, therefore, an Ethereum wallet is required to work with applications.

Let’s take a closer look at all the sections of the Affiliate application. The application interface is created using the latest tools and technologies of web development, and meets the highest standards of UI / UX.

Dashboard

This section is the Affiliate’s Desktop, which displays statistics on the most important parameters that allow an affiliate to track the dynamics of their advertising campaigns:

  • Clicks — statistics on clicks of active affiliate campaigns
  • Leads — statistics on confirmed leads in active affiliate campaigns
  • Conversion — conversion as a percentage of clicks to leads by active affiliate campaigns
  • Earn, HQX — affiliate earnings

Next are the graphs that show earnings and conversion:

1. EARNED. This graph shows how during the selected period (the data for the last week are displayed by default) the daily earnings vary. This allows the user to estimate the amount of earnings in a certain period and, using this data, adjust the strategy.

2. CONVERSION. This graph clearly shows the ratio of confirmed leads to clicks (conversion).

Next we see the table RECENT STATS. It shows clicks, leads, conversion as a percentage, and earnings by day. Through the More button, the user can go to the lead section and see detailed information on the lead (s) for a specific day.

Below we see the MY Tickets block — it is a ticketing system for working with the technical support of affiliate networks which the user works with. This functionality is currently under development.

On the right is the MY Networks block, where the user can see all affiliate networks with which he works, and can switch to any of them. The block displays the logo of the network, its name, rating and the number of available offers.

Below you can see the NEWS block with the latest news of the HOQU platform.

Under the ticket block is the LEADS block, where the last 10 leads with brief information about them are displayed.

In the NEW NETWORKS block, the user can see new networks. The display of networks depends on the region of work of the webmaster, his rating, on the rating of the network. Also, when mapping, an algorithm is applied that automatically compares the rules of operation of a particular network and the user’s rating. Thus, the webmaster sees only the networks which he can access.

In the block NEW OFFERS new offers of those networks with which the affiliate already works are displayed.

Account

Section Account includes three subsections:

  • Profile
  • Settings
  • Identification

Profile

In this section, the user can edit the data of his profile.

Settings

In this section, the user is able to set the system settings for such parameters as:

1. The interface language.

2. Date format — allows you to change dates in accordance with formats familiar to users from different countries.

3. Currency format — adjusts the display of currencies to individual user requirements.

4. Authorization by email. Allows the user to log in to his / her personal account by mail / password, regardless of whether there is an electronic wallet on the device or not. All actions with the block in read-only mode are not available (you can access them only after authorization by electronic wallet, tied to the account).

Identification

This section displays the current level of user authentication. Identification is needed to compile a global decentralized rating of all participants on the HOQU platform.

It clearly demonstrates the requirements and limitations for which this or that level of access is set, as well as the requirements of networks to users.

TIER-0 is assigned to the user automatically after they are registered in the system with an active electronic wallet, the system will perform the authentication of this wallet in the blockchain and confirm it.

TIER-1 is assigned after passing KYC, filling out the form with confirmation of the phone number and email.

TIER-2, TIER-3, TIER-4 are currently under development.

Wallets

In this section, all the user’s Ethereum wallets are displayed. The following control functions are available:

  • Add and remove a wallet from the system.
  • Rename the wallet.
  • Select the main wallet, through which all payments will be made in the system.
  • View the current balance of all wallets.

Event Log

In this section, tables are created with data on the latest user actions related to the block system:

  • Date of validity
