I recall moderators we’re asking feedback on how to stimulate more content providers and one of the challenges was paying them (currently based on page views). Tried finding the thread but to no avail so started a new one

I have an innovative idea. How about allow users to send virtual stickers (or gifts) to be able to allow readers to donate in a fun way. I know of a product that offers just that. It’s in its alpha stages right now but in the next few months will roll out to a base for 30M users. I’m in a small group chat that includes the CEO and staff and I could get you in touch to see if it’s a possibility for blogging platforms like this. I wonder if they would be able to display the gifts on the blog and tailor to be twins themed?

Just an idea...

Here’s a video kind of explaining the concept:

Here’s the whitepaper if you want to see more detailed information on the concept or team:

Just for clarification, it was John Bonnes, who is an owner of TD. Moderators aren’t involved in content development.
