A Unique Asian Country With Massive Demand and High Returns. Review & tips #5
Any arbitrator who has profound experience directing traffic to different countries knows that best profits come from unique geos. The competition is many times lower, and the audience is not used to seeing offers everywhere — and thus is not as good at skipping them. Crypto is no exception, so those rare geos sometimes show outstanding CR.
Today we’ll talk about Taiwan. Comparatively few arbitrageurs take this country seriously, having bothered to translate promo materials into the local language. Which sometimes means they’re missing out.
To come up with decent tools for a unique, unknown geo, keep its characteristics and mentality in mind. In this material, we’ve collected all the nuances and tricky details that’ll help you figure out what Taiwan is, who the Taiwanese are, and how to make them care about your offer.
