As of today, you can boost articles.
Boosted articles are shown across read.cash and greatly increase the visibility of the article.
You can boost your own articles or anyone else's.
The amount of views you get is in proportion to the daily bid you set. If you place a bid of $0.01 per day and someone else places $0.02 per day, that means that you get about 33% of views and another person would get approximately 66% of views.
After you set the daily bid, you need to add some money. If your daily bid is $0.10 and you send only $0.05 that means your boost will be active for about 12 hours.
You can change your bid and add more money at any time.
It is of course integrated with our affiliate program, so you get 3% of every boost of the people who signed up using one of your links.

Here's an animation that explains it better:
It's a very new feature with basically zero competition, so
$0.01 per day should be enough . UPDATE: The prices gone up since this has been written and we're thinking about how to better distribute limited advertising space to everyone. Currently it's more like $0.50/day to get 10% of the exposure. Expect a future announcement hen and if we figure it out.
Don't go crazy - there aren't that many visitors on read.cash (yet).
Note that a "view" here means that the user saw the link to the article (like you see on the main page), while a "click" means that a user went to the actual article.
This is an another experiment, we'll see how it goes.
