A couple of days ago, I read in a Reddit post that the aim for creating the read.cash platform is to distribute Bitcoin Cash (BCH) to as many people as possible with the goal of promoting awareness and mass adoption of the coin. I want to believe the platform is living up to its potential as I and thousands of people from various regions (many who can't afford to invest their money in crypto) now hold some amount of BCH and have learned a lot about Bitcoin cash ecosystem.

Bitcoin cash can become more useful and valuable with a significant increase in the number of users (and its usage thereof). So every additional Bitcoin cash adopter makes BCH more valuable for everyone involved in the network. This is the Network Effect.

New Readcashers are very important to the strength of the read.cash and bitcoin cash community. As we join the community to learn, share content, and connect, it improves read.cash potential of becoming the best places to be. And when earn BCH, promote it to people in our various communities, hodl, and/or use it (being peer-to-peer electronic cash), we promote the growth of Bitcoin cash adoption - which could benefit everyone on this platform.

As new real users are important to the growth of this community, I believe it's necessary to warmly welcome them (like I was) and provide them with useful tips and resources to make their onboarding hassle-free.

Here, I'll share some useful tips and resources that could be useful to beginners on read.cash


Useful Tips for Read.cash Beginners


1. Backup Your bitcoin cash wallet.

Every user is prompted to write down the 12- recovery words (seed phrase) during the process of signing up. If you failed to save it or write it down then, it's not too late now. Go here to find your seed phrase and save it or write it down somewhere secure. This is essential so you don't lose your earnings (BCH).

A week after joining read.cash, my phone developed a fault and had to be flashed. The read.cash BCH wallet (where your earnings are stored only exists in the browser you used to login to the platform. So after the repair, I logged in to read.cash and was asked to create a new wallet or import an existing wallet. It's a good thing I wrote down the seed phrase, I was able to recover the existing wallet and gained access to the BCH I earned.

If you don't back up your wallet seed phrase no one can help you recover your Bitcoin cash when the need arises.

To backup, your wallet (if you've not) get started here.

Note: save/write it down somewhere safe and don't give it to anyone as it gives complete access to your Bitcoin Cash.

Secure your asset while you still can.

2. Update your profile

You can add an avatar (your picture or logo), bio (a tagline/brief self-description), and links to your various social channels and website. This lets the members of the community know a little bit about you and helps them connect with you away from read.cash. These are not compulsory but recommended. You can also add an email if you didn't do so during registration. This will come in handy when you forget your read.cash password (for password recovery).

3. Write your introduction post

You won't be penalized if you don't. But what better way to start than to introduce yourself to the community. It helps your potential readers to know more about you and what to expect. You can write about your personal and professional background (as much as you wish to share), how you heard about read.cash (you can mention the user that invited you if any), your passion, skills, hobbies, and interests, and what readers should expect from you. You can tag/mention some users in your post - to improve your post visibility (as any user mentioned in your post is notified about it. And they may decide to check your post out and welcome you. But be careful not to mention too many users. You can tag me @Lixten if you don't know anyone to tag.

Tip: To improve the chances of your articles earning tips, ensure that your article's reading time is not less than 3 minutes. 3 minutes reading time is about 600 words. Also, avoid plagiarism.
