Experience Points (XP) can be gained through in-app activities ranging from unlocking the article to commenting on articles. There are 4 tiers at the moment, each tier has unique benefits. XP is used to rank up through Tiers. The benefits add up. In final tier, even though all in-app functions are unlocked, the XP progression remains for unique cosmetics (badges, headers, avatars, etc.), competing in rankings (Top 500 users), beta testing the new features, and becoming content creators within the app.
Please note that the XP progression is still crucial after reaching the 4th Tier as the journey to become a credible content creator within our ecosystem is also dependent on XP.
XP can be gained through daily activities. Unsubscribed users gain standard XP. Subscribed users gain double XP. Each article unlocked gains 100 XP. Daily article XP cap is 200 XP for unsubscribed users, 400 XP for subscribed users. Comments gain 10 XP per comment. Daily comment XP cap is 50 XP for unsubscribed users, 100 XP for subscribed users. Daily overall XP cap is 250 XP for unsubscribed users, 500 XP for subscribed users.
