What is Medium’s formula to distribute revenue to writers and how much they keep for themselves?

Hi @zaheerbaloch, I'm not sure what the actual split is, but Medium talks about their high-level business model regarding its subscription service. Google search recent blog posts from Ev Williams, the CEO and founder.

Hi @nicknick, I googled and found very high level information that payouts are based on claps, views and engagement/reading time etc. But they never mention anywhere how much they give out or what exactly is the formula!

Interesting model. Here is the link to the FAQ page https://help.medium.com/hc/en-us/articles/115011694187-Medium-Partner-Program-FAQ. Model is bit like Skillshare, which looks like a successful model.
