Massive writer's publication Medium just made a power move.
They are going to start paying their writers.
Or let me reword that, their readers are going to start paying their writers.
How does this work?
Medium is a free publication, you can access every article without paying. Recently, Medium opened up a membership account for $5/month. Here's what the membership gets you: exclusive stories from top writers (that will later be available to the public), audio versions of popular stories and the ability to reward other writers.
With a newly installed feature, people with a membership plan can use that $5/month to pay you.
How do I get paid?
With each clap (Medium's version of a like).
You don't have to be a member and pay monthly to get paid, there is no limit on the amount of posts you can publish to get paid for and the membership is open to anybody interested.
Not a bad gig, huh.
