Agreed, Anna Cairns, there are other expenses.

I’ve paid my member fee upfront too. Like how you broke that down on a monthly basis.

Back to the expenses. There are other revenue streams that are less obvious than the member fee. I think Medium is sharing the breakdown of how the reinvested portion is measured.

The other revenue streams are not analyzed here because they do not pertain directly to the clapping system.
