Membership fees should always be calculated in US Dollars. $38, $45, $50, $59.99, etc. Current users keep their rate until they cancel, and new users would have to pay the higher rate if we did lift our rate up.
Users would have the option to pay with the standard payment methods of Credit Card/Paypal or they can pay in Xbits (we would need to provide an option to start deducting from their Xbits balance instead of normal payment methods).
Users will also benefit from staking Xbits in membership discounts and earning more xbits.
Ideally we want our platform to operate on a freemium model, providing some benefit to users that are free, and allow them to still view certain things without having to pay. We would want to capture users that are referred to our site as fast as possible, so having them sign up with an Email + Password and IP rate limit would be our best option there.
Paid members would receive full access to channels, and alerts etc., while also receiving discounts to Xhub Items, Coaching, Questions, and many more benefits.
