Listen-to-Earn? Stack Sats as You Listen

avatar
(Edited)

Not only do we have move-to-earn apps these days but now, we are having "Listen-to-Earn" ones as well.

L2E1.jpg


Fountain App is one that does that. It claims that it is "the only podcast app that rewards both listeners and podcasters for the value that they bring to the platform."

"We believe Value for Value is a more rewarding system for everyone, but to help Value for Value grow we must make it accessible to all. Allowing users to start earning Bitcoin as soon as they open up Fountain for the first time takes us one step closer to achieving this. Earn just by listening to your favourite podcasts and then send the money back to them to show your support." - (Quoted from Source)

Features

The app has the basic features that listeners expect from their podcast app. Apparently, Fountain is adding new ones all the time and you can contact them and request any feature you wish to have.

  • Sleep timer
  • Chapters
  • Offline listening
  • Filter tags
  • Notifications

How can one earn from it?

  • Listening to any of the podcasts.
    There is a "sats" tick at the top of the podcast (or advertisement) you are listening to. You can see how many satoshis (Bitcoin) you earn. It increases as you keep listening.

  • Listening to promoted content on the Discover page.
    I noticed the amount earned on promoted podcasts are higher than the normal ones. Or probably just coincidental.

  • When other users like your clips or comments.

"In Fountain you can now pay other users by liking their clips or comments. Listeners now have a financial incentive to share content they find valuable and express their thoughts on what they're listening to. Liking clips and comments creates signal for other listeners looking to find podcasts that they're going to enjoy. Every time you press like, you're sending 10 sats to the user who created the clip or sent the comment. You can press the like button as many times as you want!" - Quoted from Source

I didn't know that pressing the lightning icon would send 10 sats to the user from my fountain wallet, lol!

  • There is a multiplier so the more you refer, it increases your earnings as you listen to podcasts.

How to Sign Up?

  • Download the app from the stores
    Google Play or iOS

  • Create your account
    It requires an email address. It sends a code to your email which you need to copy and paste before you can go through the app.

If you are so inclined, you can use my referral link

  • Then you can go to your profile and brush it up, make it yours (upload profile pic and stuff)

  • And you are set! You can now search, discover and listen to podcasts of your choice and start stacking up sats.

Withdrawal

Upon signing up and getting through the code, you will automatically have a lightning BTC wallet address created for you in the Fountain app. It's where your earnings are accumulated which you can then withdraw to your own BTC wallet where your keys are.

"To withdraw funds you will need a Bitcoin Lightning wallet that lets you receive Bitcoin over the Lightning Network. You can also use CashApp, Strike and other money apps." - quoted from the site's FAQs

They do have a measure in place which they say would prevent bots from abusing the system. I presume they have a threshold that a user must reach before one can withdraw.

I've only discovered the app through an email from the Pomp that I've read today. After taking a look, I decided to start using it. The app is fairly new and we shall see how it goes.

For more information about the app, check it here and FAQs here.


NOTE: This is not an endorsement for the app or anything associated with it. Please use it at your own discretion. Also, this article contains referral link/s and I may earn when one signs up through it.

How interesting I hadn't heard of these listen to win apps, maybe I'll sign up, although I'm not fluent in English 🙈, but on second thought maybe it's a good way to sharpen my ear in this language 😊.

Thanks for the tip! 🤗

It is interesting indeed. It's Listen-to-Earn, not "win" hehe. You are right, it can be a way to sharpen the ear and improve on the English language :)

It is new and I have not been able to find more contents I like but I think when more people learn about it, it will be awesome.

Thank you too and cheers !LADY :)

Hmmm I wonder if I can do the same thing with other Podcasts, this maybe a good way to learn cryptocurrency terms in another language??

Yes, it is new. I was listening to a podcast talking about it and it seems they got the idea from how Uber works. Hope more podcasters especially the popular ones will discover it. I find less options to listen to, or maybe I was not searching enough hehe

This is a good find as I listen to a lot of podcasts, I wanted to join and try it but I think you posted the wrong referral link? I'll wait for your reply before doing so.

Also, I remembered that a few days back a Hivean somewhere on Discord said that he is waiting for a Breathe-to-Earn app, I would definitely get that one if/when it comes out! 😆

Voted on ListNerds!

Look at that, with tokenization, you add another layer on the application that create incentives for people to use it.

I think there is a variety of topics. I just searched the hashtag crypto now and came out with results. I did listen to one this morning about Bitcoin and Uber :)

For poshtoken, you need to have a Twitter account. Then go to https://hiveposh.com/ and register (connect your Hive account name or your Twitter account or both) and you are good to go.

Share your post or other people's posts on Twitter and make sure to add the hashtag #Hive on your tweet. Please let me know if you have further question :)

Very interesting. I have never heard of this before. It seems like it could be something worth looking into. I wonder what kind of return you can actually get. I feel like they would have to meter it in some way. Otherwise what would stop you from just leaving the app open and running on a spare device all day.

Please do check hehe, I didn't explore the app that much, only listened to 3 podcasts yesterday and had 480 sats, lol!

I think it is good especially for those who love to listen to podcasts daily and the sats earnings would be like a bonus. But it can be good as the user base (both podcasters and listeners) increase.

Yeah, that makes a lot of sense. I usually don't like listening to people talk so podcasts are hard for me. Occasionally one grabs my attention though.

That’s great, do you like just earn once you register or you have to have some sats in your wallet?

Yes, you earn as you listen to podcasts. You don't need to have sats on your wallet.

This is so cool!
Web 3.0 is here already, and like every thing it is a natural evolution of Web 2.0.
The initial Web 3.0 Apps will span the gap between Web 2.0 Freemium services and Web 3.0 Payment for your time and attention Apps, with Web 3.0 borrowing elements from Web 3.0 to make the transition easier, like Leofinance designing HIve sign ups which use Facebook and Twitter log in.

Yes, they are adopting and they know how to attract users by giving value to their time spent on the platform. The transitioning is nice. Hope the app gets more attention from the mainstream and if it happens, it could blow up.

Yes it could. I think it needs more exposure. If well-known podcasters will do their podcasts in it, it would probably gain more attention. It is still very new.

I've never heard of listen to earn before. Everyday new things are being made in the cryptosphere. Not sure I fully trust things like this, but you never know, it could be a hidden gem :)

Can't believe I missed to reply this one :) Yes, it's amazing how technology is bringing new things daily. That's the challenge too, if the earned sats can be easily withdrawn
