I thought about this too but couldn't get past the "pay to win" model. If, for example, hubski gets super popular, what's to stop an ad agency from buying 1,000,000 and flooding the site? Credits are cheap and $5000 is a drop in the bucket of a major ad campaign.

What's stopping them from creating a bunch of accounts and doing that now?

These bits are buying you anything. We're not saying you can't share if you don't have money. Interactions are remaining the same but now your vote has a bit more value.

Oh, I was replying specifically to the idea that submissions should cost some nominal amount of bits.
