This is updated to include crypto and non crypto based platforms. For readers who are still new to crypto (unlikely as that may be), here’s a great place to quickly come up to speed. That settled, let’s dive right in 🙂
PublishOx is a “crypto agnostic publishing platform” that pays writers (and yes, readers too). Here’s how you can earn on PublishOx:
This is available only upon receiving an invite from the PublishOx Content Team. This gives the PublishOx Content Team better control over the quality of content that gets published on the platform. So if you “specialize” in spamy, low quality content, it’s definitely a NO NO!
B. Reading content
Yeah! You heard that right. PublishOx pays you for reading content and here’s how. When you read a post, you can tip the writer and actually share the tip. You also get to determine what percent of the tip you keep as the reader, crazy right? But don’t go on allocating 100% of the tip to yourself. Well you can’t do that, the highest you can allocate to yourself is 80%.
NB: Tips come from PublishOx rewards pool and are free to both readers and writers. Also, anyone can sign up to the platform to read and give tips to the authors.
Light bulb moment – how about writing a post and using a separate account to tip myself? or getting my friends to tip me? Well, probably not worth it as payout are really really low. We’re talking about $0.01
C. Ambassador program
PublishOx Ambassador Program is a marketing strategy that pays you for referring new readers to the platform. When you sign up as ambassador, you get a unique Ambassador Referral Link. Use this link when sharing posts with your network (on social media, blogs, email etc) anyone who joins PublishOx via your link becomes your referral and you get 5% of every tip they claim.
They actually payout in somewhat established coins/tokens like Basic Attention Token (BAT), DAI StableCoin and Hydro and not some shitty new token trading on only one obscure platform.
ii. There are 3 different ways of earning from the platform as you can see above.
iii. Their focus on great quality content.
Kudos to them!
Don’t expect to become a millionaire from your PublishOx earnings. The screen shot below shows a really wonderful welcome post by Dan Bainbridge that has earned him only $14.89 since 11 Oct 2018 when it was published. Also, I looked up a whole bunch of posts and the highest earning post I could find (as at 17th Feb 2020) had earned only $25.42!
The constant pop-up prompting you to sign up, I really wish they’d do something about that, it gets really annoying.
To wrap it all up
Altogether, PublishOx is a great platform to earn a few bucks, I hope the team behind it keep up the great work and sustain the platform.
Thanks for reading through, don’t forget to like and share and watch out for the next platform that pays writers for content in 2020! Also, interested in crypto, here are a couple of sure ways you can earn a few bucks from crypto, enjoy!
