Earn Bitcoin running an IPFS Podcasting node!
Any boostagrams sent to IPFS Podcasting are shared with nodes hosting the content.
- The podcaster offers a v4v split to IPFS Podcasting.
- A listener sends the podcast a boostagram for a specific episode.
- All IPFS nodes hosting the episode will receive a share of the boost value.
For a 10,000 sat boost to a podcast with a 5% split for IPFS Podcasting, 500 sats are available to send to IPFS Podcasting nodes. If 10 IPFS nodes are hosting that episode, each node would get 1/10th of the split. 50 sats each (minus transaction fees).
If a listener sends a general boost to the podcast (not a specific episode), only the IPFS nodes who favorite the entire feed () will get a portion of the boost. 5 gold heart nodes would get 1/5th each.
How to setup your account
Enter your lightning information on the Manage page to receive sats.
If you run multiple IPFS nodes, each node can have a different lightning payment address. Using the same lightning address for multiple nodes will consolidate payments. i.e. If you run 2 nodes that both host the same episode, you get a 2X share of boosts to that episode.
