SporeStack Affiliate / Referral

Make money shilling your least favorite VPS hosting service.

SporeStack has an affiliate system that's a bit different than most.

We do have the traditional copy/pasta system where you have a coded address and you send it around. You'll earn 10% of what's paid. Customer doesn't get any discount, at least for now.

You need a referral token. The URLs will look like this.

Careful, use your referral token and not your settlement token. They are the exact same format of 64 lowercase hex characters.

Don't have a referral token?

You'll get one when you make a settlement token. The referral token is your settlement token SHA256 hashed as "(token) deposit". But don't worry, we can do that for you.

How do I get paid?

For every build that comes from your affiliate token, you'll get 10% deposited in your settlement token. You can check the balance on the settlement token page or with our API. If you want a command line way to do it, send me an email and I'll get that working.

Now you can use that settlement token to build more SporeStack servers, or you can withdraw it. Withdrawl is a manual process for now, you'll likely have to send in an email.

What can I withdraw my millions as?

Preferably, some ratio of what your refered users paid with. If your referrals all paid in Bitcoin SV, please don't ask for your payment in Bitcoin Cash if it's some huge amount. I'm not an exchange.

The payments are denominated in USD, but SporeStack is not a bank. Don't wait for forever to withdraw if you're not going to just spend it back on the platform. I'll make an effort to take care of you, but if there's a huge crypto crash or hyper deflation of the US dollar (like that'll ever happen...), you're probably not going to see as much as the balance shows. The funds you earn are not guaranteed. But, I want to pay you and normally I will, I just don't want to be on the line for the obscene edge cases where everyone in the crypto community is probably suffering anyways.

But... currencies. Same as the ones we support. Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin SV, and Monero. If you're a real high roller maybe we can make a deal and you can get my land down in West Texas or .45 ACP (I have a ton right now).

I want to succeed when you do and it's not fair if you help grow SporeStack and don't get fairly compensated in return. So I want to keep that linked as much as possible.

If my referrals are doing double spends, do I get the money from it?

No.

But wait... is there more?

I'm so glad you asked.

With the API you can set an affiliate_amount integer to the number of cents on top of the base payment you want your user to pay. You get all of that. Minus the above disclaimers, of course. When you do this, you don't get the 10% of the regular rate, just what the users pay on top.

Now SporeStack is already expensive so I doubt you're going to be able to just charge an arm and a leg above what I already am and hope the shekels start rolling in. But, let's say you want to run a Minecraft server for someone. You can run your proxy API (or maybe do it all Javascript and static in a pinch), have the user build a 2GiB server plus however much you want per 28 day period, and the user makes one payment to build the server, then you configure it with Salt, Ansible, Puppet, by hand, or whatever. You don't have to handle payments or work with a bunch of APIs. You just deal with mine, find your niche, and get paid.

If you're crafty, you can run basically a zero margin business managing servers on SporeStack for people. You don't need to front the cash to pay for the server, the user does it and pays you at the same time (kinda).

Confused?

That's what email is for.

How much will I make?

Trillions. At least, maybe in Zimbabwe dollars
