Micro payments are the future in this age of adblockers (listen to @cdixon and @benedictevans talk about it: https://a16z.com/2015/09/25/a16z...). Blendle is one of the most promising startups from The Netherlands (in my humble opinion ;) ), and I'm really excited to see where they can take this! Launching in the US with the help of NYTimes (one of their investors). @AlexanderNL can tell you more!

@bramk thanks Bram :)
@alexandernl @bramk I've been following blendle's progress for a while via your active Medium blog. I run an active daily newsletter. Is there a way for me to publish that newsletter to Blendle as well?
@alexandernl @bramk Very pretty launch landing page!
@alexandernl @bramk great! But does it include Trump and Kim Kardashian content blockers? ;)
Yesterday we announced that we will start a USA beta early 2016. It's fist come, first served! We're live in the Netherlands for over 1,5 years and already have 500.000 users, which is a lot for our small country. A few months ago we launched in Germany with all (100+) publishers and now we're coming to America. Super exciting times. Read more about our beta and Blendle itself on Medium - https://medium.com/zu-blendle/eu...

Congrats @alexandernl @emieljanson on this product, on initial glance it looks great! I work for a curated news startup called Wildcard, and I'm really curious to hear how Blendle was able to develop it's business model. How are you able to sell customers content that your company doesn't own? Does your team have contracts with the NYTimes and WSJ to sell their paywalled content? Congrats again, look forward to testing out the beta!
@sahilkathawala yes, we do partnerships with the publishers. Big fan of Wildcard, btw!
Congratulation on your next move to the USA! Such a beautiful and disrupting platform.
You've got my attention, and potentially a whole boat load of my quarters.
