Show HN: Hypehop, a video service that pays you for your attention (hypehop.com)

The sample video they have on website pays $0.36 for 1 minute video. This translates to a rate of $21/hour. This is not bad, but may not bring the target audience they want, especially if they are pitching to investors, programmers, and other people with relatively high salaries.

The second problem is cheating. They do claim “Keep your eyes on the screen. HypeHop watches you watching it.”, but presumably a secondary computer or tablet will trivially bypass this, and let one get the money without watching the video.
