Apart from providing a platform for Writers to use their skills, and write on any topic of their interests, Opera News Hub also provides an Avenue for content creators to post videos and images on the Opera News Application.
Writers are paid to write and the payment is determined by the number of clicks an article get, as well as the number of comments and shares it generates. This enables bloggers to make alot of money from their content, with some writers taking home as much as Kshs 300,000 in a month.
Apart from the monetary benefits, Opera News also provides a platform for users to be part of those that share news and brings people's attention to occurrences, that may otherwise fail to make it to mainstream media channels.
Other than that, Opera news already has a ready client base through the Opera mini application, hence the writer doesn't have to share his/her articles inorder to get clicks.
This is unlike YouTube, where you cannot write articles or post pictures, and your views generally depend on you sharing your content. Incase Opera News gets rid of regional restrictions and allows multi-national access to content, then it could get bigger than YouTube.
