Recently, there have been huge updates regarding monetization on Minds.com. Now you can earn money, points or Bitcoin on Minds using following features:
Wire gives you the ability to send points, money or Bitcoin to other Minds users (channels). It also allows you to set up your "Reward Tiers" - something similar to what we can see on Patreon. For example - you can set your reward tier to $10 and only users who pay those $10 (monthly) will be able to see the content which is behind this paywall. This is how easy it is to set up rewards for your subscribers & supporters.
And this is the panel on your Minds channel showing your earnings over the past 30 days:

If that person then buys points (in order to boost his/her content on Minds) you get the 25% commission on that sale. More about Affiliate Program >>> https://www.minds.com/affiliates

In my time on Tsu I've not had many days where I made more than $1. I have 3700 followers and 850 children, but I was mainly earning from whatever views I could get on my posts and that would only be around 50-70 per post. That changed over Xmas when I gained some children who have been active and are getting lots of views. I hit a peak of $2 on Xmas day. That's from just a couple of children out of the hundreds. If even 10% were active I'd have a nice little income.
I got my first payout at the start of December, which took over a year to earn. It looks like the next one couple come in a couple of months. Tsu really does work, but there are still issues with retaining users.
