read.cash is a platform where you could earn money (total earned by users so far: $ 539,016.57).
You could get tips for writing articles and comments, which are paid in Bitcoin Cash (BCH) cryptocurrency,
which can be spent on the Internet or converted to your local money.
We publish our links to our BCH-related material on Reddit BCH sub-forums, although some have a personal vendetta with other Read.Cash members and because they didn’t win the argument, they started a crusade against Read.Cash links on Reddit. Just to feed their egos. Hope you are all happy with the recent developments.
I’ve found too many comments like the one below on some posts by Read.Cash users.
I didn’t find any such comment in my Reddit posts (they were also just links), and I’ve tried to test this for a long time, yet, it seems these were directed to selected Read.Cash users because of a personal vendetta.
The whole argument of this post is about a personal feud between @D.B.Cooper and @alberdioni8406 , started by @D.B.Cooper who is now removed from Read.Cash for valid reasons.
TL;TR: CDSagain (probably also D.B.Cooper) is pretty much done with Bitcoin Cash (according to his Reddit post) because a writer on Read.Cash made 6-7 BCH which according to CDSagain was not deserved.
The argument of abandoning Bitcoin Cash, because someone posts links on Reddit with his Read.Cash articles, is more than unreasonable. Makes absolutely zero sense and I'm amazed this post on Reddit reached such high numbers of upvotes.
It is also quite suspicious that this friction led to the amplification of a drama and perhaps eventually to Read.Cash and Noise.Cash links removal from Reddit.
I have suspicions (but no evidence) to believe that this Reddit decision was taken after reports by Reddit users.
I will provide my opinion on this feud, which I also expressed earlier more diplomatically, having an approach of trying to calm things down.
The reason given by D.B.Cooper was Alberioni should have contributed more with tips, something that I find irrelevant to start a crusade against any person. Simply, block him if you don't like it. It takes a certain degree of "not having anything else to do" to constantly harass someone online.
So, this is what this Reddit post is about. Something that is totally irrelevant to Bitcoin Cash, very little relevant to Read.Cash, and yet it became a great drama for the community, more posts were added and eventually D.B.Cooper flipped and personally attacked with foul language against Alberioni, without a provocation.
Whatever the quality or the concept of the articles Alberioni creates, it is still not plagiarism, and I also found it strange that D.B.Cooper didn't even care for those that were plagiarising and earning but attacked someone that was at least creating his content.
By the way, I enjoy the content of Alberioni and find it to be informative and often contains a high value for me. Instead, the content of D.B.Cooper was just about gardening, relaxing, drinking beers, and grilling. I don't know how this was adding value to the Bitcoin Cash community and Alberioni wasn't, since it seems that this is the core concept behind the criticism on Reddit.
I found another comment that I don't understand exactly the thought process, here:
Just to let @ShadowOfHarbringer know, no matter the views that Reddit brings, users will still get paid according to the algorithm. The views, as we know are not the most important part. I write it again in this post that even if you make 1000 views another post with just 50 will probably get the same rewards.
But again, if the rules of Reddit subcommunities are broken then posts should be removed. Which community rules were broken and how is it that all of the sudden read.cash is "spam"?
So, read.cash links are spam? I'd like to know more about this position and if it is now better that no read.cash spam pollutes r/btc. If the read.cash links were spam, then I guess it was against the rules of the community and should have been removed immediately all this time.
Or are these platforms considered to be so popular that the content creators are more important there? You know I am on Medium too, if I publish my Medium posts on r/btc they will be considered spam?
What about any other information on Reddit that is only presented by a link and a title? Is this spam? There should also be a plan about these too then, shouldn't it?
Frankly, I wouldn't care to write an article about this.
If this was the decision from r/btc and r/bitcoincash, I would respect it and move on without writing anything about it.
However, the result was the Reddit forum shadow banning all Read.Cash and Noise.Cash links. So, now, we can't publish any Read.Cash or Noise.Cash link anywhere on Reddit, it is immediately shadow-banned.
Reddit completely blocks now all Read.Cash and Noise.Cash links. Great job on supporting Bitcoin Cash initiatives. As I expected, some are so mindless that would put their ego above anything creative and promising, and would prefer to see it having less publicity since they failed completely to attract readers with their material.
I hope you are all happy now.
If you ever enjoyed my content, it will never be visible on Reddit again. Obviously, Reddit is better for everybody, and with the new Ethereum upgrades integration, it would become a lovely platform to keep writing.
When I fail at anything I have two options before me.
Either abandon all hope and silently quit, or
Try again harder the next time.
I barely quit, though. This is my personality, I am a fighter and don't give up. Yet, there is another category of people, though.
THE SORE LOSERS
These guys will not try again, but will always find an excuse for their failures and will just try with various methods to create a negative image for the rest. These are the sore losers, bitter, aggressive, and completely HOPELESS. Acting like maniacs and, of course, as usual, running to Reddit (the troll forum) to vent their frustrations.
What this user in Reddit did was create the impression that we are getting rewarded heftily by the 20-30 Reddit clicks, but this is completely wrong.
Tips on Read.Cash don’t work like this. Maybe there is a factor that could increase rewards a little, but this is not like that. Some posts have 800 views and the rewarder didn’t pay them more than articles containing 50 views. It is unfair to say that we publish our posts on Reddit to earn more money.
I’ve been far from Reddit for two months after I deleted my first account. I don’t like Reddit to be frank, because of all the trolls and the non-constructive approach, far too many commentators have. Reddit is mostly a gathering of all professional spammers and trolls of the internet, where they fight on their egos and count sizes. It is a social experiment on how to reduce internet trolling on all websites, by centralizing it in just one forum.
I find Reddit a TOTAL WASTE OF TIME, and I also find the conversations there to be mostly pointless, distractive, and annoying.
I had articles rewarded with $20 and they just had 50 views. And at the same time $10 in tips in other articles that have 500 views. Just to let this sink in, because there seems to be some kind of misunderstanding that we are abusing the r/btc and r/bitcoincash communities.
I intend to have more readers. I am not writing for only a few people but want to have more followers and plenty of readers and comments.
If it was about the money, I wouldn't link my content to Reddit, since I am not earning more tips for the reasons I stated above. I've been far from Reddit for two months and my posts were doing equally great.
There is a side-income coming from the tips, it is the same at Medium, the same at Hive, the same at any other platform that pays, or used to pay.
Aren't there YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, and any other social media or forum articles presented with links on Reddit? Was Read.Cash and Noise.Cash so important to consider as spam and support the removal of them?
If my posts and my writing is not worthy, then most of the BCH community has Read.Cash account, if not just make one it takes half a minute. Comment on my links on Reddit and tell me that I broke the community rules. I have never read such a comment though. Yet, there had been thoughts and a plan to change them. I respect it but was this outcome the desired one that will help the Bitcoin Cash ecosystem.
I am not going to join Reddit and create content there. Not anyone else from Read.Cash or Noise.Cash will. Most despise Reddit and find it a shill and spam-infested place. Moreover, Reddit is only a forum.
Some developers provide some good intel there, but whatever Reddit is, it is just a forum. Designed for short Q&A posts and not for an elaborate 5-25 minute reading material that will cover details. Do you really expect me or anyone else to abandon Read.Cash or Medium or Hive and start publishing content on r/btc to increase the quality of a subreddit?
Read.Cash is not a forum. It is a writing/blogging platform similar to Medium. It is not even similar to Hive, which is also used mostly for 1-2 minute reading time material.
The approach of Read.Cash attracts more professional writers, those that understand how to structure an essay and create a write-up that will attract and keep the interest of readers.
I don't even know why I have to write all of this, and why some in the Bitcoin Cash community considered Read.Cash links to be spam.
I tried two approaches with Reddit and both seem to have failed.
a) With the previous account that I have now deleted (for various reasons), I tried giving an introduction to my post, perhaps one paragraph with 4-5 lines. It failed since everyone was only reading the introduction and trying to respond to the 2-3% of the whole argument I was making.
95% of the comments and questions had already been answered in my article, yet, I had to respond once again with what I've already elaborated within the article. They were just not reading the Read.Cash article, but commenting on the title or the introduction.
b) The second approach I tried, was what everybody else from Read.Cash was doing. Just push the Reddit link button and only publish on Reddit the link and title to my Read.Cash post.
I barely commented on any question and always redirected the user to read the article on Read.Cash and ask anything on Read.Cash if they wanted.
This worked far better, and I got just a few irrelevant comments on Reddit. As I explained above, Reddit is a forum, not a platform for content creators.
Why would I ever write 10-20 minutes of reading time material for a troll-infested forum that would never be appreciated?
I have to apologize to my readers for this rant. It seems that we can't get a grip lately.
It is better to work together towards a common goal with certain rules set for every sub-community of Bitcoin Cash but sometimes I just don't understand people.
I consider it to be an unfortunate event to see Read.cash and Noise.cash links shadow-banned from Reddit. Maybe those that were considering it differently should rethink their approach and where they went wrong.
Youtube, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, TikTok, any kind of bs platform links are allowed on Reddit. But Read.Cash and Noise.Cash are not.
Maybe consider that taking 6-8 hours to create a quality article is not spam and respect the content creators.
Reddit certainly didn't respect anything.
If Reddit users want to keep in touch with any one of us, now they are not able through Reddit.
I suggest bookmarking Read.Cash, perhaps bookmark those writers that you want to follow and occasionally visit us.
Maybe, there will be value in our work you won't find on Reddit. Or maybe we can all just quit if the community decides we are just creating spam and not helping with the cause of Bitcoin Cash.
