Expensive Chat

Chatroom where you pay $0.01 per letter

Expensive Chat is a chatroom where you pay $0.01 per letter. It's a social experiment to see what happens when an online chat is not a free-for-all, but every message costs money.

This idea is really cool. It reminds me of THE MILLION DOLLAR HOMEPAGE. Especially because you can see that people use it to advertise.
Here are two best ideas for an opportunistic website:
- the most creative billboard (https://www.themostcreativebillboard.com/the-idea)
- the mostexpensive ad (https://www.themostexpensivead.com/the-idea)
Take a look and enjoy!
Product that will fail once its initial "hype" dies off. I understand the idea, but it really is too much of a quick cash grab for the dev and not a "social experiment"
@itsmill3rtime Hi Jimmy. Maker here.

You’re absolutely right in that its success is/was destined to be short lived. That’s fine for me. I was just curious to see what would happen if this idea became a reality.

As for it being a cash grab versus social experiment, can’t it be both?

For what it’s worth, when I called it a social experiment I never meant to imply it was a proper scientific research project. It’s merely an “experiment” in the sense of “it’s hard to predict what will happen, but I’m intrigued to find out” and “social” in the sense that influences the way participants express themselves.
