Q. How will I make money on the Legends platform?
A. A user will be able to make income in multiple ways. First, the user can originate a story, thereby becoming an Originator. That story will come equipped with its own story bank and have its own story profile. The story profile will have crowdfunding tiers that the Originator, or other user(s) with governing power, can set up to charge patrons who want to gain access to the story. A story's Patrons will initially be charged on a monthly basis for varying levels of access to a story. That money will go into the story bank and be distributed according to that story's Story Terms.
Another way to make money on the Legends platform is to participate in existing stories by contributing creative works to them, thereby becoming a shareholder of that story's story bank payout. Creator recruitment can take place when a story's governors create a new job and open it up for submission. Recruitment can also happen through private offers, either from the creator or the story governor(s).
