************************ LIKE vs Like ************************
To prevent confusion, let's distinguish between LIKE and Like:LIKE, all capital letter L-I-K-E, is the symbol for LikeCoin on crypto-exchanges, just like HKD stands for Hong Kong Dollar and TWD stands for New Taiwan Dollar. LIKE is exchangeable with fiat currency such as USD. For example, 100 LIKE stands for 100 LikeCoin.Like, with the capital letter L, stands for the Like a reader gives to a creative work. It is free for readers and will help the writer mine LIKE from the mining pool. Every user can Like the same article 5 times most. The Likes given by readers logged in with LikeCoin ID have a heavier weight than others.So, "giving Like" and "giving LIKE" mean differently. Make sure you do not mix them up. Giving Like is similar to like a post on Facebook or clap an article on Medium; while giving LIKE means giving out LIKE from one's wallet.
