Both Blasters and Senior Blasters are paid based on performance; in addition to this, the best news may be distributed around by the Social Blasters, a global team of digital influencers selected through application and interviews. All the core processes are managed by technology: e.g., homepages are handled by a patent-pending algorithm without human intervention. Blasting News has a very innovative proposition: 100% Independent Blasting News encourages a wide range of points of view. All blasters can freely choose the topic and the medium of their contents.

Money comes from advertisement sold on the webpages.?
