This afternoon I decided to try Yours.org, a site where you can write articles, decide what to charge for them, and get paid in bitcoin cash. I had an idea: If you pay and then a section is revealed to you, that doesn’t have to be just for articles. It can be used for anything digital!

A few ideas:

  • Podcasts
  • Photo filter packs for Lightroom
  • Digital art
  • eBooks
  • Word and Powerpoint templates
  • Photoshop and Illustrator files
  • Music
  • Videos
  • WordPress themes

So, I decided to test it out. I packaged up four sets of national parks photos, put a thumbnail grid in the preview, and put a download link in the paid section:

I’m testing three different price points: $15, $10, and $5.

I also wrote a piece on how to use Yours.org for selling digital products. I priced it at $2.

In just a few hours I made over $40 in bitcoin cash! It is super exciting seeing the notifications come in while you are reading other articles. I think that the notifications are tied to transaction verifications because they come in waves. That must be when blocks get processed and transactions verified.
