Tips are the new Likes
Brands spend billions of dollars a year in building their social presence. "Likes" are a social power and financial digital asset. Publish0x (pronounced "Publish") is using crypto and blockchain, transforming "likes" into "tips". Writers are getting paid for the tips they receive. Readers are getting paid for the tips they give. 😍
Where does the money come from?
Each time you tip it draws the money from the advertisers' budget. So it's simple: users are tipping other users with advertisers' money.
- Advertisers get their ads seen and clicked
- Writers get instantly rewarded for their content
- Readers are paid as they read and tips articles/Authors they liked.
Micropayments: blockchain powered business models 💰

By entering in the "proof-of-concept startup club" publish0x proved itself to be relevant and viable. Entering in a very large market with an entirely new business model and driving strongly crypto/blockchain adoption. It is very early to tell whether or not this specific platform, under this shape, will disrupt or not bigger players already well established, but for sure its potential is here. 😉
