Everybody can become a Readr if he owns a Smartphone, a recording software, internet and of course the ability to read. In general, the Grandma, as well as the college student or the mom who stays at home can become a Readr as well as the businessman who has an incredible voice or the Author who wants to be authentic.

Will everybody become a highly successful Readr? We don't think so. But everybody can try to innovate and provide his best performance.

Just like with transporting passengers on UBER or renting your home on Airbnb. Are you required to be a Hotelier to host on Airbnb? You don't. A Chauffeur with a certain color car? No.

Those who are willing to go the extra mile, to earn our famous 9-star reputation, while others stop after the finish line - those are the ones who will become the user's favorites. On Airbnb your asset is your property, on UBER it's your car, on Youreadfor.me it is your voice. If your fans like you nothing else matters.

The listeners will decide if they're pleased with the performance and provide feedback for improvement. The best part is - they don't even have to be in the same country. They just have to be within the same language spectrum.

As a Readr you finalize a project and as soon as everybody is happy, you will receive your payment to your payment option of choice. End of story. We want to automate all steps so there is no delay where your money is in the ether.

It depends on your quality. As an Amateur a smartphone, some type of HQ recorder or medium tier external microphone is recommended. You also should try to reduce the echo and hall-effect as much as possible. From a Semi Professional it is expected to have a little home studio with middleclass recording device, an amplifier and a middle class microphone - which produces no white noise. As a Professional Readr you should have access to a high tier studio for maximum recording and editing quality.

It is up to you. Our expectation is that an Amateur charges 25€/h; a Semi charges 250€/h; a Pro Readr above 1.000€/h. There is no price fixing from our side.

No. Being a Readr is a Zero Knowledge Job. You can learn it on the go. But remember: Quality is King.

Depends on the difficulty and quality expectations. A rule of thumb might be: 100 words/minute.

In the launch phase we offer Credit Cards, Paypal and Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum. In the future we will adapt more payment options.

2.0 will add a Copyright token exchange in order to trade copyright tokens. It allows to share cashflows, digital rights and invest into promising talent.
