      Wowowow, this experiment definitely bears watching! Loads of partial parallels with Readup.

      I appreciate that the author admits that it’s hard to predict what will happen, but at the same time sketches out some context and conditions of both platforms.

      That would be something truly new in social networks — intermittent financial rewards just for using the platform as intended.

      Is it possible that daily rewards paid directly to creators could create a healthier network than our current marketplaces for attention?
