How to earn crypto with PRESEARCH in 2022

Presearch is an open, censorship-resistant, and decentralized search engine powered by Blockchain technology.

While some of the most popular search engines do collect the user’s data for their own profit and benefit, Presearch is a privacy-oriented search engine that does not collect user data.

This is, Presearch is the correct choice for anyone who believes that internet browsers should not harvest the user’s personal data or censor content.

Once you are on the presearch.org page, in the top right corner you will see the ‘Register or Login’ button that you need to press to navigate to the account registration page.

How to register to a Presearch account

And to sign up for a Presearch account it is as simple as providing an email address and a secure password.

Presearch create account

How to use the Presearch search engine

Once you have created a Presearch account, the search bar will be displayed in the center of the screen, and the user account navigation menus on the top right corner.

Under the search bar, you may notice some logos such as ‘Google’, DuckDuckGo’, ‘Twitter’, ‘YouTube’… Those are the search result providers that this user has defined as favorites.

For example, if this user would like to make a specific search on just YouTube, he would choose the YouTube icon from the list.

If this user would like to get some specific data about a cryptocurrency, he would choose CoinMarketCap or CoinGecko for the search. 

But right now this user has the three dots selected which means that any search he performs will pull the results from all the search providers defined as favorites.

Presearch search page

The search providers along with some other customizations can be accessed through the ‘Manage account’ link.

Presearch manage user account

Once you have navigated to your account’s dashboard, you will notice many sections. In this article, we will review a few of the most relevant.

Presearch user dashboard

On the ‘Homepage Providers’ section, you can add or remove search providers. 

For example, if you are interested in blockchain or cryptocurrencies you may want to add to your search providers ‘CoinMarketCap’ or ‘CoinGecko’ or ‘Etherscan’. 

If you are interested in financial news, you may add ‘GoogleFinance’ or ‘YahooFinance’ to your search bar.

Presearch search providers

In general, you can use Presearch as any other search engine but you can customize your search providers to target specific sectors or results.

Presearch browser extensions

Instead of having to navigate to presearch.org every time that you want to make a search with Presearch, you can add the Presearch extension to some of the most popular browsers.

The Presearch browser extension options

If you decide to add Presearch as an extension to your favorite browser, once you double-click on the ‘Search extension’ link you will be redirected to the browser extension page where you will have the option to add Presearch as an extension.

Once Presearch has been installed, you will have the option to set your browser’s default search engine to use presearch.org.

And from that moment any search you use the Presearch search engine and you will be rewarded with PRE tokens.

How to earn PRE crypto tokens by searching

Every eligible search will be rewarded with PRE tokens and the balance will be displayed under the ‘Reward account’ section on the user’s dashboard.

As an example, this user has earned 575 PRE tokens by using Presearch.

Presearch rewards account

The amount of PRE tokens per search varies depending on some factors like the market value of the PRE tokens.

Also, there is a limit of 30 searches per day and any searches beyond that threshold are not eligible for rewards.

As an example, on the 23rd of February 2022, this user made searches along the day that they were rewarded with different amounts of PRE tokens.

Presearch rewards breakdown

There was a time, years ago, when the PRE token value was much lower than it is now. Then, every search was rewarded with 0.25 PRE tokens.

But as the Presearch search engine becomes more and more popular and the value of the PRE token increases in price, you may expect that the rewards amounts per search do decrease to keep up with the PRE token market value.

How to earn PRE crypto tokens by referrals

Also, it is possible to earn PRE tokens by referring Presearch to your family, friends, or any other person you think that may be interested.

The person you refer must open a Presearch account using your own referral link. And as soon as they have opened an account through your referral link, they will automatically earn 25 PRE tokens.

Once the person you have referred has accumulated 50 PRE tokens through searches, you will also be eligible to claim 25 PRE tokens.

Presearch referrlas link

As an example, the user from the picture below has been referring people to Presearch and two of them have become eligible after earning 50 PRE tokens through searches.

Those that are eligible are highlighted in green.

Under the ‘Las active’ column you can find out which of your referrals are active and on their way to becoming eligible, and which ones have not used Presearch for a long time or ever.

Presearch referrals

But note that there are some rules for referrals, which are described on the Presearch website.

One point that people confuse about the most is the 50 PRE tokens threshold to qualify as eligible referrals.

Once a user opens an account through a referral link, this user gets 25 PRE tokens as a reward. But, then, the user has to earn additional 50 PRE tokens to become eligible, and the rewarded 25 PRE tokens do not count.

This is, a user must accumulate a total of 75 PRE tokens before the person who referred the user can claim the 25 PRE tokens.

Presearch advantages and disadvantages

The author of this article has been using the Presearch search engine for around two years, so this is the feedback from a long-term user perspective.

Let’s start with some of the disadvantages:

– Even though Presearch is good for most of the day-to-day searches, Presearch is not yet as mature as some more popular search engines and some searches give better results when using Chrome or Firefox. 

Personally, I use Presearch for 90% of my searches but there are some specific searches, for example, map-related searches, for which I use Google Chrome.

– Also, the Presearch search results speed is at times slower than other search engines.

Even though the search results speed most probably will be increased eventually, at the moment it may be a nuisance for users more used to the quick results from other search engines.

– At the moment, to reach the 1000 PRE threshold to claim the PRE tokens, is nearly impossible given the rewards amounts.

But this is due to change very soon once the Reward Verification System (RVS) is updated. Still, this point has caused many complaints from many users which feel frustrated with the high threshold.

– At the moment, the token withdrawal is a manual process that may take a very long time to be completed.

For those users that want to withdraw their PRE tokens to a wallet or an exchange, the manual process and the high fees have been two major drawbacks and there have been many complaints about this topic. Still, Presearch is moving towards an automatic withdrawal system, with lower fees, which should fix this problem within the near future.

Some of the advantages of using Presearch are:

– Presearch is a Web3 browser, decentralized and based on the blockchain. 

The Presearch users have already given a step towards the next phase of the internet and are ahead of the majority of the population in terms of web technology.

– Presearch is a decentralized search engine that is not controlled by a single or a few hands. 

Most of the most popular search engines are controlled by very few people and they have control over what is displayed on the searches. They can modify the search algorithms to display the results that they deem more suitable based on their own agendas or preferences.

– Presearch is a privacy-oriented search engine that does not track the user’s actions. 

We all know that some of the more popular search engines do track the users for their own benefit, which many consider a concern.

-Presearch rewards the users with PRE tokens for every eligible search. 

Most of us make many searches per day so why not get the most out of it…

Presearch nodes

There is an additional way to earn PRE tokens, and it is by setting up a Presearch node.

Presearch nodes web page

The user from the picture below has set up 7 nodes and the amount of PRE tokens that each node has earned is displayed on the node dashboard.

Out of the 7 nodes:

– One is running on a desktop PC

– Six of them are running on Amazon Web Services (AWS) Virtual Private Servers (VPS).

Presearch nodes

How to set up a Presearch node

As described on the Presearch node setup web page, nodes can be run on nearly any home computer or on some other virtual or physical hardware.

The easiest and most common option is to run a node on a home computer or laptop, but for this option, the electricity usage of the home computer must be taken into account. 

Depending on the electricity cost per Kilowatt hour, running a computer 24/7 as recommended by Presearch can be costly.

Presearch run node statistcis

The other most common choice, instead of running a node on a home computer, is to run a node on a Virtual Private Server (VPS).

But this is an option for which a monthly fee needs to be paid and requires the user to know or to learn about how to launch an Amazon Elastic Cloud Computing (EC2) instance and run it.

Amazon offers free EC2 tiers so anyone interested in learning and launching a Presearch node on a VPS can give it a try without having to spend any money.

Still, this option is for those who are comfortable with using AWS or learning about AWS E2C and must be carefully approached because Amazon will charge for the services once the free tiers are consumed.

Presearch AWS node instance

Regarding if you chose to run a Presearch node on a Physical or Virtual machine, there is some software called ‘Docker’ that you need to install and then run some commands on it.

But all the instructions are described on the Presearch node setup web page so it is just a matter of following those instructions. 

How to setup a Presearch node instructions

It may take a bit of trial and error to get the node setup, but if you run into trouble we would encourage you to keep trying or reaching the Presearch community for support.

How to earn PRE crypto tokens by operating a Presearch node

Anyone can run a Presearch node but to earn rewards 2000 PRE tokens must be staked on the node.

Presearch node operator rewards

Once the node is up and running and the 2000 PRE staked, to earn PRE tokens it is quite passive. It is just a matter of keeping the node up and running.

The rewards amount will depend on some factors:

– Uptime score: The longer is your node up and running without any interruption, the higher the score will be. For this, it is important the node it is running 24/7 without interruptions.

– Latency score: This factor depends on your internet and your internet provider. Network latency is how long it takes for data to travel between its source and destination. The higher the latency, the worst this score will get.

– Success rate score: This factor is calculated based on the search delivery success. If the node receives a search request and delivers it, it is considered a success.

Presearch Amazon Web Service node rewards

At the moment of writing this article, in February 2022, it is possible to earn around 1 to 2 PRE tokens per node. So do not expect to get rich running nodes, yet… because it barely pays for the cost of electricity or the Virtual Servers.

But, if the price of the tokens increases over time, it may be that running a node is actually profitable. This is what the people who are running several nodes and paying for electricity or Virtual Servers bet. That the prize of PRE will increase over time and they will make a tidy profit.

In any case, anyone running a Presearch node is supporting the Presearch project vision and the decentralization of the internet.

Presearch NFTs

Presearch Non Fungible Tokens, or NFTs, have been distributed for free to those who have supported the project.

Presearch was launched in November 2017 and those who have been around the project during the Initial Coin Offering (ICO), running nodes, staking on keywords,… and such, have been rewarded with NFTs.

As an example, the user from the picture below has been rewarded with 7 Presearch NFTs.

The whole Presearch Road to Mainnet NFT collection is displayed in OpenSea.

How to earn crypto with the Presearch NFTs

As with any other NFT, the Presearch NFTs can be bought and sold on secondary markets like OpenSea.

An NFT owner can decide to list an NFT for sale or can receive offers to purchase the NFT.

In any case, some of the Presearch NFTs have already been sold for thousands of USD and have made quite a nice profit to the owners, who got the NFTs at no cost.

presearch node nft

According to the Presearch team, more NFTs will be distributed in the future so being an early Presearch user pays off.

Even though the Presearch NFTs can be sold to make a tidy profit, you need to have into account two important factors:

– To sell an NFT is a taxable event in most countries, so that means that the person who sold the NFT will have to pay taxes based on the profit. 

As the NFT was distributed for free, most probably taxes will have to be paid over the whole profit made by selling the NFT. If you haven’t done it yet, now is a good time to learn about your tax obligations over the profits you are making or will make on crypto.

– You may want to keep them because your Presearch NFTs will be given value and utility within the Presearch ecosystem

Presearch keyword staking

If you are a content creator and have advertised your content on platforms like Google or Yahoo Ads, you know that you must pay for displaying and getting clicks on those ads.

But, with Presearch, it is possible to stake PRE tokens on keywords and get traffic at no cost.

This is only partially true… because first, you will need to purchase PRE tokens to be able to stake them…

For more information, visit the Presearch keyword staking web page.

Presearch keyword staking ads

As an example, the user from the picture below has staked 100 PRE tokens per keyword, and the number of views and Ad Clicks are displayed on the user’s keyword staking dashboard.

Presearch keyword stakes

At the moment, receiving views or Ad Clicks does not have any cost for the advertiser.

But this may change in the future and Presearch may introduce some sort of burning mechanism for every View on Ad Click.

Still, for content creators, it is a big plus to have free keyword ads on a search engine that has millions of users.

Presearch PRE tokens

Presearch offers some ways to purchase PRE tokens for anyone who is interested in running Presearch nodes, keyword advertising, or even just investing in the project. 

How to buy PRE tokens

It is possible to buy PRE tokens directly on the Presearch marketplace or from third parties via external markets.

In any case, be sure that you know what you are doing, make your own research, and verify all the information that we are sharing on this web page. We will once again repeat the following…

How to deposit PRE tokens

There are three options displayed on the Presearch tokens transfer web page to deposit PRE tokens into a user account:

– Transfer from Blockchain: This is the most common option for those who have purchased PRE tokens on an exchange or third party and wish to transfer the token to their Presearch account.

– Transfer from Rewards: It is possible to transfer the PRE tokens internally within Preserach, for those PRE tokens that the user has accumulated as search rewards.

– From Crowdsale: Only for those who participated in the crowd sale…

Presearch deposit tokens

In any case, most users will use the ‘Transfer from Blockchain’ option for transferring PRE tokens from an external wallet to the user’s account.

Below there is an example of how a user has transferred over 6000 PRE tokens from an external wallet to the user’s Presearch account.

Presearch transfer tokens from blockchain

How to withdraw PRE tokens

PRE tokens withdrawals can be done from the user’s dashboard.

But note that at the moment of writing this article, in February 2022, the PRE tokens withdrawal is not a user-friendly process. It takes manual steps and high Ethereum fees to withdraw PRE tokens.

It may not be advisable to withdraw PRE tokens yet and wait until the Presearch team has upgraded the withdrawal system. But the good news is that it seems that this upgrade is to happen soon.

Presearch withdraw tokens

But to those who need to withdraw the PRE tokens, the withdrawals can be traced as any other blockchain withdrawal, with all the information available on the Ethereum blockchain for traceability.
