Periscope has introduced a new way for broadcasters to make money.
Arguably the first real revenue stream offered to those who broadcast regularly on the Twitter owned live-streaming platform, Super Hearts will see viewers able to purchase ‘hearts’ as a way to reward broadcasters for their content – with broadcasters then able to cash out the value of these special ‘super hearts,’ at the end of each month.
“By using Super Hearts, Periscope is blending what is essentially paying broadcasters voluntarily with an element of the app that already exists: likes as hearts,” Hall explains.
Right now, Super Hearts are only available to broadcasters in the U.S.
Periscope is a FREE download.
