Publish0x, based on the Ethereum blockchain, is a multi-crypto compatible publishing platform that incentives both its content creators and readers alike. Users earn cryptocurrency in real-time by consuming content produced by other users, maintaining their own personal blog as well as sharing great content.
The easiest way to explain Publish0x is that Publish0x is a crypto agnostic publishing platform similar to Medium, where both author and reader earn.
How to Earn Crypto by Publishing AND Reading Content on Publish0x?:
Publish0x is a crypto-agnostic platform through which content publishers AND their readers can earn crypto. When you publish content, your readers can tip you. Tips are free and come from Publish0x rewards pool! A tip is split between author and reader.
You don't need any crypto currency already to use the platform, infact, both the author and the reader earns on Publish 0x - yes you earn cryptocurrency while you read! How it works is that it gives you the tip and you choose how much to allocate to the author and how much to keep! Just look for this sliding tipper at the bottom of every post after you have logged in.
While anyone can register, read and give tips to authors on Publish0x, currently the only way to become a publisher is to make a simple application to become an author, or to get a direct invite from the Publish0x team.
Currently the tips are in Basic Attention Token (BAT), DAI StableCoin and Hydro, and they will be adding ETH-erc20s in a future update.
Per this page:
"Note that the device can only store a single-key account. However, it can be used as an associated account to a multisignature account."
So the receive address to store on my Ledger will *ALWAYS* be the same forever-more or is this a limitation as of today? Like everything else I'd want to generate a receive address at will.
Then I got to further reading and this appears to be by design for Algorand _itself_ and not an application limitation. Am I reading that right? If I want some privacy on the blockchain, I need to create a new _wallet_ for each transaction address? I have to be misunderstanding that or is that a requirement of the 'automatic staking' model?
Pardon my ignorance, looking for clarity here. Thank you.
EDIT: A misread on my part - the single-key is not the part that means single receive address. Still, my question remains .. do I always have the same address forever-more on that Ledger and I can't generate new receive addresses?
