Hi Marla Szwast! Interesting take there. Pretty sure Medium is reinvesting the $5. Those early quotes are directly from Medium guidelines and the follow through links provided. When clapping for member pieces they clearly state this as a metric of measurement. Happy reading and exploring!

Also, there’s an assumption in your response that the membership is the only revenue stream on this platform. I absolutely believe there are other revenue streams. Some are less obvious than others.
