Reviewing the Path
The campaigns we conducted in the pass two months aim to let the creators and the readers to experience how the “reinvented LikeButton” goes.
From a big platform to individuals
We showed the LikeButton concepts on Medium in phase 1 and 2, as there are many creators and readers and Medium supports to develop the LikeButton UI via embed.ly. In phase 3, however, LikeButton further supports individual WordPress based websites, which covers 30% of content websites in the world, in order to facilitate a more diversified, independent, and liberate creative ecosystem.
Readers to take a more important part
LikeWidget, rolled out in phase 1, is just a creator’s name badge supporting LIKE transfer function. The main dish is the LikeButton in phase 2 to connect the readers and the creators. As stated in the LikeCoin white paper, the reinvented LikeButton is for rewarding content creators by Proof of Creativity mechanism.
“Mining” by Content
When we talk about a WordPress plugin for “mining”, someone may associate with those malwares which steal the client’s computational power via browsers to “mine coins”.
It is a HUGE misunderstanding!
LikeCoin’s way of “mining” is related to readers’ Likes, and the LikeRank algorithm to be developed — we call it “Proof of Creativity”. It is nothing to do with the client’s computational power.
We will keep promoting this brand new idea to the public.
Next Campaign is About to Start
We will announce the news about the next campaign in a few days. Don’t stop your innovation, as the Likes you get from now till the beginning of the next campaign will surely be count for reward.
