What is Publish0x and How it Works

Publish0x is a crypto agnostic, Medium.com like publishing platform that rewards both authors and readers.

Readers have the option to send a micro tip to the authors and get a portion of the tip for themselves. Tips are free for both reader and author and come from our rewards pool.

Tipping and Payout Related Questions

 

If Tips are Free, Where Do the Coins Come From?

Tips on Publish0x are free for both author and reader. The tips are sponsored by us. Tips will likely be sponsored in the future.

Does that Mean Advertising is Coming?

We are keen to avoid putting banner ads all over the site. We might place 1 in the backend dashboard if we think we can do so tastefully without overwhelming the site with ads. We would prefer to work with different interesting and ambitious coins who would be interested to “airdrop” and give away their tokens through Publish0x to gain awareness, or to sponsor the creation of article and video content to appear on Publish0x.

Which Tokens Are You Using?

Currently, tips can only be made in BNTY (https://bounty0x.io) coins. BNTY is a tradable ETH ERC-20 token.

We will be adding multiple other ETH ERC-20 tokens for you to be able to tip in, though tips made in BNTY will be worth slightly more (in USD value) than tips made with other tokens.

How Can I Withdraw My Coins? Payout date and rules.

Note that these should be taken as guidelines and are subject to change without notice.

Payouts are processed every Monday.

When you request a payout, our team manually checks the request. Once your payout is accepted, your balance will be sent the following Monday.

The minimum threshold for a payout is $0.50 payable* in BNTY**. Right now this is roughly 200 BNTY, but it does move about due to fluctuations in the price.

*The minimum amount needed to request a payout is subject to change.

** Check out BNTY on CoinMarketCap.

 

Publish0x in Relation to Other Projects

How is Publish0x Different Compared to Steemit?

Here are the main differences:

  • We don't have our own coin and are crypto agnostic. Right now, only BNTY token is working, but we will be adding support for multiple ERC-20 coins in the future.
  • When tipping, both the author and reader earn. No one loses anything when a tip is given. Tips are free for both the author and reader and come from our rewards pool.
  • Tips from your account don't have more or less “voting power” than tips made from an account holding more of “xyz” token (in case of Steemit, more of STEEM).
  • We are not trying to become a social network. We are a publishing platform open to select approved authors that focus on quality content. Thus, it would be more accurate to compare us to Medium than Steemit.

Are you a part of the 0x Protocol or District0x?

No. We are not based on or a part of neither 0x Protocol (DEX protocol) nor District0x (a social space protocol).

District0x did plan to launch a project under the name Publish0x (they wanted to launch a Decentralised Publishing Market for Books) sometime in 2017, but we have no connection with it other than we happened to have chosen the name Publish0x by pure chance.

Bugs

I’ve Found a Bug. Something is Not Working Correctly.

We are in Beta, and that means that the site is not polished yet.

The core mechanics of Publish0x are working, but we do expect odd issues to appear from time to time. If you notice something that is not working correctly, we will appreciate it if you let us know. You can reach out to us at support@publish0x.com

 

How Can I Contact You

Platform Rules - TOS

Offenses that may get Your Account Banned:

  • Using two or more accounts. Only one account per person is allowed.
  • Using any kind of automation to tip authors; this includes using bots, macros, etc.
  • Spamming the comments to get people to sign up to one service / product or another.
  • Trying to cheat our system in any way. :)

Offenses that may get Your Authorship Revoked:

  • Copy / pasting someone else's content. Be that articles, images or videos. Embedding videos from Youtube and using CC0 content (publicly available images from pixabay.com for example) is OK.
  • Publishing spun content or content of otherwise content of very low value. We are committed to hosting only content that other people would like to read or watch. A good test to figure out whether or not you are breaking this rule is to answer the following question: Would you like to read what you've just written? If the answer is no, please don't publish the piece on Publish0x.
  • Using your blog / post on Publish0x as a landing page for a shady offer.
  • Publishing anything illegal.
  • Publishing extreme ideas on either side of the coin. - Not sure about this. Or rather not sure how to phrase it properly. :)
