@Robert Nicholson Not everybody is you. Many people are making content right now on other platforms and getting nothing. Posting their content here in conjunction with their youtube channels, their instagram pages, their blogs, doesn't hurt anything does it? True some will make very little here, others will do well. It is a speculation of time for some, money for others, and still some others both.
There are already other models in the crypto social platform in existence, albeit somewhat flawed. Starting this in straight fiat would be challenging, to divide the reward pool up straight dollar for dollar. The speculation of the value of the token going up in value is a main factor for many people here. I may only make the equivalent of 100 USD per month here ( or even 10 USD who knows), but many will leave that in the token, and wait/hope for the value to increase as the platform takes shape.
