Would you stay, keep writing on this platform if read.cash doesn't pay you? Some might because by now they are used to showing up here just like they do on Facebook or other platforms.
To some it is motivating to read others earn points, to others it's painful to read about it time after time after time. Especially if they see proof of the high amounts of points daily gathered by people who can hardly write or turn out to be spammers, plagiarists. To figure that out you only need to visit the account of this read.cash user.
By now we all know they are here, the spammers, and we know spamming (begging for followers, reading/upvoting articles) pays just like copy-pasting others their comment (I receive the strangest comments, longer comments, which have nothing to do with my article or any other comment left).
It is an illusion to think all spammers will be gone soon or one day. Not with a platform like this. This platform is business and like each organization spamming, scamming is used to promote and to force people into something.
Not able to earn hurts if you do your best and this is the case with many good, willing, hard-working writers/users. A part already left but not only because they hardly earn points or their points are frozen. They left because of a huge lack of support. The fact is those who left did way more than "just" publishing good content. They invested time in many users, new users. They gave valuable advice, upvotes, helped to edit what is written, and gave tips. Tips that are welcome to each one of us.
As I joined this platform the discussion was how to continue if the fund is empty. It was clear we had to reward each other as well. It is the main plan that we help each other, we reward those who we can truly say about: He wrote something good. Something that not only benefits me, this platform but the outside world as well.
I started rewarding as soon as I started earning and I cannot help noticing that those who do reward others are not even 1% of the 11k + accounts read.cash has.
To your defend you may say "Hey, but I do need the money". Let me tell you so do others, so do I but I still share, give it to those who write something valuable. The writer who invests is willing to invest in himself and this platform, which means in you!
If you truly believe someone isn't worth 0.01 cent, not even your upvote ask yourself why but also why you expect others to give it to you? What makes you think you " earned" those 1500 points and someone else, not even 100? Are you sure you are that valuable, more valuable than the good author, those who left after they helped so many here?
I read on Reddit the suggestion to let users pay to be able to comment. This idea could be very helpful to fight most of the spammers here. You need to pay to comment instead of getting paid. What read.cash answered I don't know but perhaps it is payback time.
If you earn 5$ a day you should invest in others, this platform for a change and not by sponsoring for 12 cents a year only.
No, I can not answer the question of why some earn that much, and others earn nothing. I can only say that if I read the comments given I frequently feel sad. Sad because no matter how positive the comments given are the author doesn't seem to deserve an upvote, not even an upvote!
Perhaps we should start our own upvote circle and not care since it is clear they do exist and people earn very well thanks to these circles. I am sorry for all those writers, friends I made here which I cannot reward with a tip. It is not always possible but knows my comments are meant and I do if I can.
