So, today we had a poster rant about how he thinks ReadCash is just a circlejerk and how it doesn't work nor rewards quality content.
Here is the original post where the rant can be read in all its glorious ridiculousness.
This post was obviously motivated for the wrong reasons, but let me assume it was motivated by noble causes and analyze it in a simple way.
You'll see that, by the end of the article, the platform works as intended, the allegations he/she makes are blatantly wrong and downright ridiculous.
Finally, you'll see the poster, @HadEnough, is simply a hypocrite.
ReadCash is a Circlejerk: Exclusive Club?
HadEnough starts his/her rant with this:
"Has anyone else noticed that Read.Cash is a bit of an exclusive club? It's advertised as free and open for people to come and post and monetize their content using crypto, but it doesn't really work. When you look at the top articles that get the votes, the comments, and the donations, they all tend to come from handfuls of accounts that tend to sponsor each other, such as @CryptoMax , @Pantera, @MobTwo, @VoluntaryJapan, and @Fexonice1 "
Name one blogging platform that doesn't have its top writers... I'll wait!
You speak as if we get tipped no matter what bullshit we write when that can't be further from the truth.
Literally, ALL of the writers you mentioned have posts that earned close to nothing, simply because these posts didn't captivate the audience.
We get tons of upvotes on articles that are high value or captivate the audience.
Let's face it, most of the content on this platform is cookie-cutter content.
Nobody cares what you ate for lunch enough for you to get paid to publish it.
If you want to get financially rewarded for posts you need to entertain, inform or add value to the readers' life.
You have NO RIGHT to any money here... all the money you get is dependant on how valuable the readers consider your content to be.
All of the writers you mentioned, myself included, spend a lot of time and brainpower on crafting high-value articles.
Sometimes we get rewarded for it, sometimes we don't - but we all started just like you with an empty account.
Instead of writing crap posts every day, think about what you write and start writing for readers rather than for the bot, write less if you need to.
Quality > Quantity.
By now, you may be reading my response and thinking of some counter-arguments like HadEnough did with the rest of his post, let's take a look.
The Top Writers Get All The Money and Give Nothing Back:
So, he says that the difference is abysmal, which it isn't by the way and I'll tell you why, and also says we top writers give nothing back.
Read what he/she wrote:
"It's not even a small difference either. These people tend to send a few cents here and a few cents there to other contributors to keep them active but receive hundreds or thousands of dollars in return for articles that quite often say nothing new."
Dude... a few cents here and a few cents there?
I'm literally the 2nd biggest tipper of the platform right behind @MarcDeMesel and I gave out $440+ the last 30 days alone.
This is more than a month's salary in most countries... and I didn't have to do it.
In fact, due to how you behave I guarantee that if you made the same amount I did you'd keep it all for yourself and you wouldn't give anything back.
I, on the other hand, gave out major tips here, loaned $100 to a user, and spend a ton more on boosts, which go right to the platform's pockets for it to pay your posts which would make NOTHING on most other blogging platforms.
On the other hand, you start by saying that the difference in earnings here is huge. It's not, you have no idea how blogging works.
To give you a notion, on platforms like Medium, most people make less than $4 per month... $4 per MONTH, while the top writers make $XXX,XXX.
I am the highest-paid writer ReadCash has at the moment and the best month I had on the top of the bull market was $6000, while most users earn way more than $4 per month.
The difference here is gentle as f...
You have no idea what you're talking about.
By the way man, your envy is showing.
The one person who gives out "thousands of dollars for articles that write nothing new" is @MarcDeMesel , in this sentence, you're basically letting us know you feel the right to his money and that he isn't free to reward the type of content he enjoys.
If you love one flavor of ice cream and there are tons of other good flavors on the market, you buy the flavor you love... other people may love the other flavors and claim the flavor you love brings nothing new, but you're free to buy it anyways no?
Stop being an entitled b*tch and understand Marc owes you nothing. He owes me nothing either but chooses to tip me because he loves my content, as the content other writers you mentioned produce.
The Huge Tips Increase the Reach Gap:
Then we have this sentence:
"It's also self-fulfilling, as some of the funding is then used to boost their articles to ensure they get more exposure, something people who are getting just a few cents are unable to do."
I started with nothing just 3 months ago.
I boosted my posts with most of the RandomRewarder tips. Do you know why? Because I wanted to grow, not be a leech who would cash out all of his tokens.
Do you know why I grew and you didn't?
Because I was invested in the platform and its success instead of wanting to siphon all of the value away to fund my life.
Also, boosts do close to nothing.
That's right, I am probably the biggest booster in this platform and I tell you, the boosts matter very little... I pay a lot for 30 extra clicks or so... but most of my posts have hundreds of views.
People follow me because:
They like my content;
They like me;
They want my tips;
They want my attention;
They want to reach my level.
This is plain and simple.
Boosts put you at a loss, they are not profitable, and, again, judging by how you write you would probably not boost at all.
The fact that I want my posts to appear on the boosted section even though I get no return for it is financing a lot of tips for you guys who don't get the top tippers' attention, so do respect boosters.
In Conclusion: The Closing Statement
So, he finishes up his rant, or her rant, like this:
"It really doesn't feel like Read.Cash is the decentralized dream many of its users support, it's just a boys club where the riff-raff are kept around to keep up appearances.
Well, that's my view. Take it or leave it but make up your mind quickly, I expect this post to be removed by the powers that be shortly."
A boys club where the riff-raff is kept around to keep up appearances?
I don't know what kind of blogger you purport to be, but outside this platform 99.5% of bloggers earn NOTHING.
You earn a frick-ton of money from The Random Rewarder here and I guess you know it because you made this alternate account in order to write this.
You don't want to risk losing your main account because you say all of this but then want your main account to stay here, leeching the rewarder as you know nobody would pay this much elsewhere.
I wouldn't be surprised if on your main account you would be patting me and Marc on the back wanting our tips, that's how envious and greedy people like you work.
This post you made was motivated not out of concern, as you say, but out of envy because you couldn't do what we all did... we arrived and we became known through our content and the value we added starting from scratch.
I arrived a couple of months ago with NOTHING but my blogging experience and proved this platform works as intended and rewards value.
ReadCash is doing a great job in detecting talents and rewarding them for them to stay here.
Also, how cool that you think we're a circle jerk rewarding each other just because... We also tip low reward posts but maybe you won't check those because you're greedy and you care nothing for content on this platform, just the BCH you can extract for it with the minimum amount of work possible.
When your entitlement proves worthless and you see that your cookie-cutter content doesn't make you thousands you write your frustrated hypocrite rants and published them under a dummy name so your leech account isn't taken off our payrolls, the payrolls of the writers you are framing as evil lazy circle jerkers.
The Comment Section Add Up: HadEnough Wasn't Quite Done
In the comments section of his rant, he adds:
"But that's easy to say when you have people dropping a grand on you for a 5-minute read. While people can tip and sponsor each other it always seems like the same small group of people tipping each other larger amounts then boosting their content to the top."
Again, dropping a grand is just @MarcDeMesel 's doing... and again you show your entitlement as you judge the way he chooses who he wants to support with HIS money.
The statement that we just tip each other's content and sponsor each other just to boost ourselves is downright ridiculous...
Me and Pantera, for example, are among the guys who sponsor the most users on this platform... I don't know about him, but I sponsor dozens upon dozens and you can check it by seeing my logo everywhere.
As for the tips, we tip small authors daily and give them the same size tips we give each other... this is because - Shocking Info Ahead- We don't know each other.
That's right, there's very little relation between the writers you mentioned.
From the names, I only ever talk to Pantera on here from time to time, and I don't even know the rest of them other than their posts popping up sometimes.
He / She goes on:
"For most people receiving $10 (with half of it being from the random rewarder) is the biggest payday they'll be likely to see and most of their posts will get next to nothing, regardless of how well written it is."
How well-written a post is matters very little if the content is just how you make scrambled eggs in the morning or how you are buying a new PC.
Nobody wants to give their hard-earned money to someone who writes about watching paint dry unless the post is entertaining af.
Now, seriously talking, $10 per post is SERIOUSLY a High Paid article if you're a freelance writer or a writer in any other blog and you still don't have your name and reputation propped up.
Hell, If when I was a newbie full-time blogger there was something like this I'd make so much bank compared to what I did back then... you see, you're already getting free lunch with the bot, you don't even appreciate that.
That shows how GREEDY and ENTITLED you are.
He continues on:
"It seems to me like the only way to achieve anything on here is to write exclusively positive content about bitcoin cash, pander to Marc and be in the small club of people sending cash in a circle."
I already said saying we send cash in a circle is absurd... the people we tip every day can attest to that.
We tip way more users than you do, and I guarantee it!
Now, positive content about BCH.... what, you thought we'd write negatively? If you don't like BCH you're in the wrong place.
Of course, we all love BCH, we're here, aren't we? Or did you think we were just here for the free lunch as you are?
There's a reason we write good things about BCH... most of us are here because we love the blockchain.
"Pandering to Marc" is something that doesn't work as well as you think, I encourage you to try it.
I pandered to MarcDeMesel once, because I wanted him to feel welcome in my blog when I was a fresh user, and I lost $2000 in tips. So, yeah.
Now, the real conclusion to the post.
He / She commented:
"I'm not mad at anyone's success, I'm simply stating what I believe to be fair criticism about the system. It doesn't monetize good content, just particular views among people who already agree with each other and pat each other on the back."
The system DOES monetize good content.
Why the hell did I arrive just 3 months ago and became the highest-paid writer? Check out my first posts, before I was visited by Marc and earned little - you'll see people were already seeing I had talent.
Now, I know I have blogging talent because that's my job for nearly 10 years, so I thought this would be a good platform for me - I wasn't disappointed.
Because the system values quality.
Quality isn't good grammar though, God No!
Quality is topic, voice, entertainment value, being relatable, picking your niches, picking your audiences.
The platform is great at valuing content and my quick rise was proof.
He / She again repeats how we tip each other, which I already said was false, but even if it was true... why would you want the money from those you value this low?
This whole post was ridiculous and hilarious as it demonstrates how a bitter and entitled hypocrite can really show his true colors...
...that is, on a second account so he can keep on leeching from those he calls leeches.
Hypocrisy at its best.
Thanks for your rant, it's entertainment, I'd tip you but I need to save my money for my circle jerk... I guess.
