Podcrypt is a progressive web app that allows listeners to donate to their favorite podcasts in a way that is automatic, fair, and peer-to-peer. Listeners set up an interval (i.e. 30 days) and pay out one donation per that interval. The app keeps track of listening habits client-side, and automatically divides the listener’s donation amongst their podcasts according to time listened and value per unit of time. Podcrypt seeks to accelerate the podcasting community towards more sustainable and equitable monetization, and to help liberate podcast creators and listeners from platform risks.
