Until today, there was no way to participate on Yours without paying money. Every post to the front page cost 10¢ and every comment cost 10¢.
But we don't like the idea that people with no money have no way to participate in Yours. Furthermore, we are a market-minded company and want to give power to our users to set the price of things. We don't want to dictate that all comments should cost 10¢. How could we possibly know what's the best price for comments for all purposes?
Today we are unveiling the ability the authors to set the comment price for comments on their articles, including the ability to set it to free.
This allows people with no money to have a way to earn their way into the Yours economy. Post a quality comment and earn money through votes and tips. All you have to do is earn 10¢ and now you can post to the front-page!
This is the first article with free comments. Please feel free to introduce yourself :) And furthermore to tell us what bugs we ought to fix next and what features we ought to add :)

This makes perfect sense.. Lowers the barrier of entry for content creation. Comments are a large part of the overall content that is consumed these days.

Ahh, "earning your way into the community" is a cleaver way to get people engaged without them needing to learn the entire history of cryptocurrency while trying to buy some BCC.

Every bit of Yours keeps getting better. The expansion of submission possibilities and comments is great. As the word spreads people will arrive at Yours without any BCC, particularly from the throngs of crypto new adopters. This gives them the opportunity to join in quite quickly. Good idea.
Still hoping for a way to upload images, videos, etc natively without using third parties like imgur. I like to manage where my stuff is more easily and less publicly.

I read about Bitcoin in 2009, thought it was cool, but I was skeptical. I spent about a year reading about it constantly before I felt I had enough of an understanding to see how it wasn't going to fail, and was going to change the world.
I'm also a miner and a developer. I'm working on building projects for Bitcoin Cash and I call out bad actors in the space (Blockstream at the moment, but I'm sure that list will grow as time goes on).

I found this website on Reddit and it was the perfect outlet for me to say what was on my mind. If I can't shout in the streets at least I can post on here! I think i'm going to utilize this platform to express my thoughts. I'm a stay at home dad and college student in my early 30s, but I hope I can find the time to write again.

You guys are doing a great job. It's wonderful to see the platform evolve. Setting the price for an article to zero is sometimes the best economic decision - the more freedom in our choices, the better off we will be. Thank you(rs) team!

Hello all. I am very grateful for Yours. My first transaction of BCH was to put some credit here. It was done literally in seconds. HOW GREAT! I learned abut Your three days ago and instantly create my first post, learning how it works. I work out tune from the word Bitcoin Cash. ( Thank you all who open it! It made me so exited, when I check in the nigh and actually seen movement on my post). HOW EXITING! I read the about founders and the statement of: we want you be paid for doing what you like. I mean, how many people really wish that for you (often not even your own parents) HOW NOURISHING. (Ryan, I actually made you a tune in June, and to all the speaker on the conference in Arnhem, and I though, your name is familiar to me, and went through my papers, and yes, I have your name reflected in music) I wanted then learn more about you guys, as I wanted to write some post to express my feelings and appreciation and I watched your talk on You Tube (from the conference) HOW SMART, CLEAR, INFORMATIVE, THOUGHTFUL! I understand so much more in general from your talk! And now I just woke up and seen this thread. I am sitting here, with my coffee and getting back to you all. My English is not perfect, but I hope you can understand.
Now to introduce myself and what I do. I am Czech woman, living with Dutch man, in Spain, talking English inside my family. Raising two girls. Bit out of the civilization madness. I have two main inventions. One is a system using logic, numbers, strings and shapes, which all blended together gives possibility to understand the conventional music theory easier, more importantly, allows people to compose own music without knowing the conventional theory. That lead me to second invention, NUMBER_SONICS. Using numerology principals (working out numbers) and applying music harmony I am making tunes from date or name (word, sentence). Everything can be converted into numbers and from numbers into music. My other passion, which is getting most of my attention is cryptocurrency and especially bitcoin cash. There is not many woman in this field, and even most of my friends or people I know have no clue. I have two unique things to get attention of people and I would like eventually to add a bit into spreading the word, informing others and creating a better world for everyone by combining my passions and bringing them out.
Oo. This is quite long comment, tasty cooffee too. Well, if I would not have family, I would probably delete it and write a post rather, but you know, there is only limited time for myself, and the kids are already demanding my attention, so I am going to hit the send button.

Have a great day you all, and may good things keep happening.

Hello everyone, I'm Enfield
I found this website after a post on Steemit, a website with a similar concept. I actually like to fact that their's a small fee to post. Because it helps preventing spam.
And it encourages to write proper content, which returns in value for the platform.

This is great news for newcomers I would like to give my opinion regarding BCH which I started to pay attention because of Ryan X. Charles recommendation I have been following him from youtube. I strongly believe BTC has been hijacked by Big corporations and the result can be catastrophic, some people don't want to see the things as they are but rather as they wanted them to be specially if you hold a bunch of BTC and sold the BCH due to ideologies. one lesson everyone is going to learn from all this forks is to hold all coins derived from a main chain at least until dust settle. looking at the test net experiments with a GB block it is clear that BCH can scalate and it is written in satoshi's white paper. I feel that all big blockers will abandon Segwit2X and point all the hash power to BCH. if got some few cents I would like to post a more insightful post about all this. Thanks YOURS for this huge MIlestone.
