Hi all! This post will be the first edition of our blog – a new channel to greet and stay in contact with our users as well as educate them on how Honeygain and the proxyware industry work.

This and all the following blog posts will hopefully help answer the most important questions for all of you. Questions like how to earn the most, where and how the connection is used, what devices can be used, what strategies can be implemented, and much more.

Now, let's kick things off with our story. Honeygain.

The Idea

Back in 2018, the Honeygain team came together to build a cutting-edge product – a crowdsourced residential proxy acquisition channel for our verified business partners and fair remuneration for end-users. Sounds complicated? It's not! A lot of business processes are data-intensive and need additional bandwidth from people. The Honeygain team decided to conjoin these two spheres and provide a transparent way to earn while helping make the web a better place for everyone.

We were not only familiar with the industry, but we understood that the main goal for our idea to succeed was to involve people who would like to get money and care about how to make the most of their bandwidth. Secondly, we wanted to make it an opportunity to give free money to a global audience, with as few exceptions as possible. Making it accessible worldwide was one of the most important things!

By 2019, we had already constructed a clear path for Honeygain, crystallized its development strategy, and also secured the initial funding, which allowed us to start the development without any delays. That's why we launched Honeygain in the same year and started helping people maximize their internet bandwidth's potential!

Honeygain Story - The Idea

The Team

In the beginning, our small team consisted of 5 enthusiasts to develop a trail-blazing product, Honeygain. As our small team pioneered the residential proxy acquisition niche, we worked tirelessly to improve Honeygain. We are all excited to make Honeygain a great product, and we want to invest our time in developing this game-changing application.

Staying true to our values of providing a globally accessible income stream, we gathered the best individuals for this mission. Our team is international and we have people from different backgrounds, cultures, and hobbies! Everyone brings something unique to the team and makes working on Honeygain exciting.

Nonetheless, we are so proud of our team! Everyone at Honeygain is hugely enthusiastic about the project! Also, having such an international team not only gives us exposure worldwide but also allows us to have an environment of healthy feedback from within the team.

The Development

The goal of developing Honeygain was to focus on our users' peace of mind. We needed to develop a secure platform where breaches would not be possible, and our network could not be used for unverified purposes.

After we were ready with the foundations, we prioritized launching Honeygain as soon as possible. Honeygain for Android was launched in 2019 and we got a lot of attention from users immediately! Sites like Product Hunt were soon talking about Honeygain. That made Honeygain grow even faster, and we saw the downloads jump to 10K!

Soon after the launch, we introduced a referral system. It helped to escalate the growth of the app. Then came the Windows app, social networks, fraud protection, device management, and many more features under the hood.

The rapid growth was unexpected. We tried celebrating every milestone – the first 100K, 200K, 500K users. We couldn't keep up with acquiring new business partners with more traffic, all of the traffic would be immediately taken by the amounts of new users that joined our platform (that might have been a bit difficult to anticipate). But we are still rapidly growing every day.

This whole story leads us to where we are now – with millions of Honeygainers from almost every country in the world. Crazy!

The Future

We are very proud of how fast the growth of Honeygain is, and we want to retain this dynamic. We will continue introducing new blog posts, more payout options, and better support for our users! We want every user to understand the use cases behind Honeygain as clearly as possible, so stay tuned for new blog posts. All of this effort and growth will culminate in more users that can trust Honeygain and the underlying residential proxy business and turn out to be the most crucial thing for our users – more traffic.

The traffic supply moves in a cycle – as more users join, our team can get more clients and also more traffic. Then even more users join, and we once again get more traffic. We will do our best to grow the traffic steadily, without the mid-cycle part - that is when the amount of traffic can't keep up with user growth.

The plans for the future are clear: we will scale Honeygain! Add more users, acquire more traffic, and continue moving further to become a go-to place for anyone who wants to start earning passively!
