Insights and Suggestions

  • Civic Liker Number is increasing while MAU is decreasing, showing that although users may feel hard to build a long term habit of clapping, they tend to be loyal and just let the account balance grow.
  • Around 50% of users have 100-500 unused LIKE budget in their account, indicating that most of the users cannot spend their budget efficiently.
  • Suggest to apply tiers of rewarding according to the unused LikeCoin balance so that the budget can be used more efficiently to reward creators. Say, if the remaining budget is above 1000 LIKE, each like action distributes 10 LIKE instead of 1 LIKE. To strive balance between simple-enough and effectiveness, this tier only affects less than 10% of the users.
  • 77.8% of the Creators Fund was distributed via a single platform, Matters. More work should be done to encourage individual websites, such as encouraging likers to follow creators by tools such as RSS readers and Liker Land app.
  • 82.1% of Civic Likers stake less than 10,000 LIKE which is dominant. Suggest to launch some promotion programs and push these users to stake more.
  • 7743 creator wallets have been awarded during the past 5 months, may consider to encourage these creators to become Civic Liker as well.
  • 30 out of 1,000 Civic Likers have allocated 37.8% of the Creators Fund, but around 40% of these top 30 Likers stake less than 10,000 LIKE. May strive for a better balance may to let bigger stakers to have bigger power over fund distribution.
