A few weeks ago we launched a new feature together with Forbes – an Ad Free Experience. Readers can now remove all ads on Forbes by purchasing a key for 0.0052 ETH a day (there's also a monthly option).
Not only were we happy but the internet rejoiced! Many felt that the ad free feature was a great use case for the blockchain. We collected a couple of tweets and press on what people had to say.
.@UnlockProtocol has been at the forefront for creating new membership-driven monetization for the Web - and we're stoked to see this partnership with @Forbes to drive more adoption for the #Web3 ecosystem. https://t.co/9mbEVdZAsB pic.twitter.com/I0IU9UyXLl— ConsenSys (@ConsenSys) December 19, 2019
Congratulations to @Forbes with the new ads-free, crypto-powered user experience powered by our partner @UnlockProtocol. The future of web monetization is here. Best experience of course with the @opera browser!https://t.co/m68DViif38— Opera (@opera) December 18, 2019
A wonderful crypto use case:— Mike Dudas (@mdudas) January 1, 2020
It is well known that @Forbes has the worst ad situation in online publishing, bordering on unreadable.
Now, if you go to their @ForbesCrypto section and pay a small amount of ETH using @UnlockProtocol, it eliminates ads on the *entire* site.
Hi, Julien & team — congrats on Forbes. Let’s talk again.— BrendanEich (@BrendanEich) December 18, 2019
This is one of those small step, giant leap moments - @UnlockProtocol has been hard at work on creating the future of composable memberships and it's great to see @Forbes take this step towards fixing the ad-driven economies! So stoked for this!! https://t.co/oLPppWBBPd— praneeth_s (@bees_neeth) December 18, 2019
