I just want clapping to have more value.

Thats a great point you have here. Might even clap for it. I suppose the capping would be a great system as it makes sure that no clap inflation is happening. I would agree that using some form of limitation to the claps (or have people earn them by reading or gaining claps from others. Like a currency above a universal basic income) would help give them more value, certainly. I also think the time involved matters some (though that value is different for all) as I don’t clap forever, right? Perhaps strengthen that with a payoff that means for every extra clap it takes more time. So 1 clap is immediate, 10 takes a couple seconds, 20 takes a minute etc.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

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