If you read a lot of articles online, or would like to read more but can't because you don't want to pay for subscriptions, this social currency platform will likely appeal to you. Sharewall unlocks content for readers on a share to read basis. By sharing published materials instead of paying, Sharewall is using social media shares as currency in the digital realm.

While real world retailers are allowing customers to pay with a tweet or offering discounts to those with Internet influence, this social currency platform helps publishers maintain loyal readers. It offers a solution between publishers giving away free content or establishing subscription fees or pay-per-article paywalls. Instead, the social paywall increases traffic (up to 32%) and offers clients valuable analytics. Stats on popular articles, shares and engagement will help them boost revenue in addition to views.
