Thanks, with Lior Zalmanson, my co-author/researcher we are looking for collaborators that would be interested to conduct more experiments with real counters based on what we see here... someone who knows how to make interledger/coil counters so we can test them on the content and see whether our hypothesis about time/money/members holds.

There were some very basic live counters that sites could display. See attached screenshot from the BRCK website on mobile.

I believe that @sharafian can provide more background on how that was exposed which could be the baseline for other experiments here.

I follow the Akita project with some awesome counters github.com/esse-dev/akita and will try to connect, maybe there is a way to create counters showing how much time/money a particular content attracted (right now they show how much users spent on webmonetized content like self-monitoring) but there is no tipping/support functionality anyway so it doesn't help really to experiment with real interaction...

Re: Akita — I'm sure that @sharon is up for connecting.

Re: Tipping — @sharafian may have some testnet style functionality available to experiment with without actual transfer of real funds...
