Hi everyone! I’ve been working on Kaneskii: a content aggregator where content is ranked by value. Each vote costs a dollar and contributors get paid by voters. Think Ko-fi + Reddit.
I’ve always felt that sites relying on user-generated content could do more to support the people who actually contribute content. So I created an easy way for people to get paid by their fans while also reaching a larger audience.
When platforms become big, likes and other engagement metrics are cheap and often bought or gamed. This drowns out communities with ads, native content marketing, and other low quality content. By requiring voters to have skin in the game, I want to connect contributors with fans who are invested in their success and I want to shine a spotlight on interesting content that might not be surfaced on other websites.
I’d appreciate any feedback on the initial UI and UX!
