4chan refutes monetization generally, and most companies wouldn't touch us with a 10 foot pole. The few that would, don't really seem to need to, do to savy customers - say crunchyroll or various import stores.
>>47345734 >He claims he doesn't even break even with the website. Well, due to the content of the website he can only get shit advertisement deals. I'm also pretty sure that 4chan has a higher amount of people who use adblock than other websites.
Moot probably made a bit more than he let on, but I doubt that 4chan was really a money printing machine for him.
Is 4chan worth a million dollars? Who would buy 4chan? Just because it has a lot of users some people think they can just turn a nob and milk them for cash. Although that’s not the case with 4cahn it would disappear as soon as the company attempted to monetize. Also it wouldn't be worth the bad pr.
>>47345753 You do realize google has money flowing out of its ass because they're harvesting all your info. And those ads on youtube don't make it profitable. Also realize that those ads pay a shitton more than ads on 4chan. >>47346032 I don't think he did, I think it was all saved for future maintenance/upgrades
moot could sell it and make bank, but if anyone tried to change it too much with more intrusive ads, integration of facebook or something, logins or really anything that would have it turning a decent profit then the userbase would revolt and the site would die.
I imagine moot doesn't break even, he appears to live comfortably and I would daresay if 4chan motors along like it is he will be financially secure for the rest of his life.
>>47346046 >>47346126 Hi there! You seem to have made a bit of a mistake in your post. Luckily, the users of 4chan are always willing to help you clear this problem right up! You appear to have used a tripcode when posting, but your identity has nothing at all to do with the conversation! Whoops! You should always remember to stop using your tripcode when the thread it was used for is gone, unless another one is started! Posting with a tripcode when it isn't necessary is poor form. You should always try to post anonymously, unless your identity is absolutely vital to the post that you're making! Now, there's no need to thank me - I'm just doing my bit to help you get used to the anonymous image-board culture!
