ResearchCoin (RSC) is a digital token you can earn by contributing content to ResearchHub. Within ResearchHub, RSC is used to properly recognize and reward users who help create value within our community, and in doing so, bring the scientific community together.

What is RSC?

ResearchCoin is a reward token anyone can earn by sharing, curating, and discussing academic science within ResearchHub. The number of RSC earned for any given action is proportional to how valuable the community perceives that action to be.

What are the benefits to holding RSC?

ResearchCoin helps recognize and reward those who contribute their time and effort to grow the ResearchHub community. People who earn RSC are granted the following privileges on ResearchHub - based upon the number of tokens they individually hold:
  • Incentivizing content creation with RSC bounties
  • Tipping valuable content by supporting with RSC
  • The ability to vote on key decisions for the community (for example, we may ask the community to help decide whether a hub should be added or removed)
