Got an idea.
How about you can gift tokens to one and other, they aren’t money, just little tokens of appreciation.
Giving a token:
People get one to gift once every week/month - idk - and they can gift it to their favourite creator. They can show their appreciation for their content.
Getting a token:
When you get a token, you get notified and your amount of tokens is displayed on your profile, like a little coin symbol and the amount next to your username. Getting enough tokens quickly you can get on trending or get bumped up by the alorithm.
