Uptrennd is a Reddit variant that pays publishers each time they get an upvote (and yes it costs them money each time they get a downvote!).
It is a centralised platform that uses an ERC20 token called 1UP.
1UP tokens create their value through utility (users wanting to increase their level) and a buy back scheme (where 80% of ad revenue is used to create buy orders on exchanges).
As a new user to the platform (level 1) I wondered how much exposure I could get for a recent YouTube video I had made and was surprised to find out that I got 117 views in just 3 days from the platform.
Overall I found Uptrennd to be a positive experience that could benefit all types of influencers!
