You pay $5/month, so a portion of that (let’s say it’s $2.50/month)

Hmmm. That doesn’t seem like a great model to me. I like to let an author know that I appreciate an article/ post. But if I only have (say) 250 total claps (if valued at $0.01 per clap) that’s not much “appreciation” to share. Nor does it take into account that I spend a lot of time reading a lot of articles. So perhaps I should have more claps to spread around? Or maybe my claps should be worth more? Idk….. but I’m sure a lot of thought has gone into the model.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

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