Yours.org, a San Francisco, CA-based app that makes it easy to earn Bitcoin for good content, closed its $1.5M Series A funding.
The round was led by Bitmain and nChain.
The company is using the capital to expand its team of engineers and growth experts.
Launched in August 2017 and led by Ryan X. Charles, CEO, and Clemens Ley, PhD, CTO, Yours.org allows users to earn and pay with Bitcoin micropayments for quality content about any subject. Based on Bitcoin Cash (BCH), the fork of Bitcoin designed to scale to a global audience, Yours.org integrates a non-custodial Bitcoin wallet with a social content app. Users have earned Bitcoin with a broad range of content types, with everything from cartoons, to non-fiction books, to short stories, to cryptocurrency trading advice.
