When you share a post or upvote a comment Is there another word we can use besides "upvote"?? How about "When you share a post or [encourage][value][are pleased by] a comment . . . Even without the downvote possibility, the word "upvote" implies the existence of downvoting.
One downside of the bitcoin process is that those in the experiment might be less likely to show encouragement. One use I make of circledotting a comment is to show people that their comment has been seen and appreciated. I'll just have to stop that because -- it wasn't appreciated that much. Anyway, let's see what comes up in the discussions as the two weeks continue.
These bitcoin may be split between Hubski and the author of the post of comment. You determine the amount of bitcoin transferred with each share, and the ratio of the split between Hubski and the author. OK, I think I get it. The main outcome will be that individual posters who try to make thoughtful comments and worthwhile posts will be rewarded. Hubski, who we love and want to support will get some real imaginary money.
Let the games begin!
