1. What’s new
21.co is now Earn.com
We recently changed our name: 21.co is now Earn.com. Our product is unchanged, as you still earn digital currency for replying to emails and completing tasks, and you can still earn tokens for signing up for our token launch later this year. But we think “Earn.com” gets that concept across more quickly than “21.co”, especially to folks who are new to digital currency!
The Earn.com Gmail integration
The Earn.com Gmail integration allows you to bounce emails from users outside your contact list and let them to pay to reach you. The motivation behind the integration is that marketers, recruiters, salespeople, and other types of senders of unsolicited commercial email now have an easy way to compensate you for reading and replying to their messages.
Updated Earn.com apps for iOS and Android
In the new versions of our mobile apps you can manage your Gmail bounce settings directly from the app, and we’ve squashed some bugs to make the app more reliable. If you don’t have them already, you can download the Earn.com mobile apps here: iOS, Android.
Improvements to signups, lists, and mobile login
We’ve given our signup flow an overhaul, making it easier than ever to get started using Earn.com. We’ve also added new questions for applying to lists and made it less likely to get logged out of the app on mobile.
Due to a large increase in new user registrations, our verification queues have become longer than we’d like them to be. As a result, we’re working on several improvements to speed up user and list verification. Please be patient and we’ll get to your verification shortly; in the meantime, go check out facebook.com/earndotcom for our community forum.
