Scratch That Itch
Bangkok-based French developer, Guillaume Verbal, unleashed an interesting take on the ‘paywall for written content’ concept this week: a Bitcoin Lightning app where users crowdfund the reveal of a post by ‘scratching off’ one letter at a time.
Lightning Scratchcard brings a genuinely innovative twist to the ‘content-paywall’ genre, providing a brand new way to earn some satoshis. The content creator publishes a written piece on the website, and sets a funding goal for it. This funding goal is then divide by the number of characters in the article, giving a per-letter price, which can be as low as 1 satoshi.
Today I am super excited to finally release my first Lightning APP: https://t.co/4GxL9NjZib
