Why am I getting paid?
Every minute that you spend consuming content, creating content, or watching ads, increases the value of the platform you’re using. Think about the ones you use every day. Youtube, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, TikTok - all of these platforms would lose their value without the time and attention that you give them, but none of them reward you for it.
Fountain is different. Fountain is the only podcast app where both listeners and podcasters get rewarded for the value they bring to the platform.

Your earnings are paused
If our security system notices something irregular about your account, your earnings will be temporarily paused. If you're playing fair this shouldn't happen, but sometimes our system can throw up false positives.
You won't be able to earn if your device doesn't have mobile data or an active WiFi connection. In this instance, the earnings counter will simply not tick up.
