Where does the money paid to authors come from?

This seems too good to be true, and it also seems easily gamed. What’s to stop someone from posting articles, then up-voting themselves via sock accounts, and maybe VPNs to change IPs?

If the payout is good enough, it would be feasible to hire a botnet to up-vote your own stuff.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
