It takes 10 minutes of listening for 1 coin, and a 2 dollar Amazon card costs 1200 coins, so it would take 1200*10/60 = 200 hours just to earn 2 dollars! That sounds insanely unreasonable to me.

@kiran_kv agree not worth it

@kiran_kv not quite the right math there - 10 mins is 2 points, so half it (100)

@nick_sallmann The website said 10 mins is 1 point, so I was going off of that. I guess it needs to be updated. (here's a screenshot of the website)

@kiran_kv I don't listen to enough podcasts - so this isn't my thing, but the way I see it, if you are someone why is already listening to hours and hours of podcasts anyway it might give you a reason to just listen to them here and earn a little something along the way.

I'm always supportive of makers/companies trying something new, although I'm always skeptical of startups that lean on giving away "free stuff" to drive engagement. 🤔

@rrhoover This isn't to drive engagement, it's just an app that pays people to listen to podcast. They have the same with Readercoin.

Neat concept but if you do the math, it takes like 2 hours to get $2 in amazon credits. Unless I'm listening to this at higher speeds and pretty much all the time, I'm not getting very much. EDIT: divided too many times – 200 hours!

@twnsndco 200 hours, not 2 ;)
Kinda wrong motivation.

Oof. Tokens to listen to podcasts. Sponsors looking at listen-rates on podcasts to determine ad spend, just got a whole lot less valid.
