4. How does Value for Value podcasting (podcasting 2.0) work?
Listeners can send payments to be scheduled on a per-minute basis, known as “streaming”, or at particular times in an episode, known as “boosts”. An increasing number of podcast players also allow for short messages to be sent along with a boost, known as “boostagrams”.
For listeners, it is the most direct way to show their enthusiasm for special moments during a show. For podcasters, it is clear and honest feedback,in the form of bitcoin, from their audience. Additionally, it is an independent income stream that only the podcaster controls as Value for Value is a peer-to-peer system without the need for a central authority.
