1 billion free coins to improve relevance on the web
We're creating a new category—relevance—to let you discover, save, and read what's worth your attention. To make it happen, we're giving away 1 billion coins to early users for free and we'll buy them back later with our profits.
Product Hunters who join until October 13 start with 20 coins.
By connecting "monetisation" possibilities with "content" relevance, this is an unprecedented mix: nothing like this exists at the moment.Cons:
Yes, I think if they can allow coins for "minting" new & relevant information, rather than "give away", that would be great.
I guess we will have to watch this space. The possibilities are endless and this is the first time a web service is linking the "linking" with "minting".Arin Basu has used this product for one day.
Good stories based on my interests so far!Cons:
Could be improved by removing the bright red error bar that directs me to "Join the Discussion". At least allow it to be dismissed.
Brings stories for me right to the new tab page in chrome. Options for each story are "Save (Public)", "Read Soon (Private)", or "Share". There's also a feature to have the article read to you, which is nice.Emmett Armstrong has used this product for one day.
