> Each comment costs a little ETH cryptocurrency to post

First time I’ve seen something like this. I wonder if it drastically cuts down on comments made, which could be a good thing.

It reminded me of Amazon. They noticed that even the smallest amount of shipping fee, in the order of a few cents, made people order less than when shipping was completely free.

Or increases the output of low quality articles, trying to draw them? ;)
