The audio social network, Clubhouse, is paving the way for creators to start getting paid through tipping, tickets, or subscriptions.
Clubhouse is all the rage these days, and it’s growing fast! The new audio social network had over 600,000 users in December and is now expected to cross the 1 millionth user mark within the next few weeks.
The team behind the app also announced that they’d secured a new round of funding that will, among other things, let them open up the app to more users. The round was led by Andrew Chen, General Partner at Andreessen Horowitz; Chen apparently also led Clubhouse’s Series A.

Apart from plans to start working on an Android app soon, add more accessibility and localization features, scaling its infrastructure, and bringing better ranking and discovery, Clubhouse is also looking to support its creator community by building features that will help creators get paid directly through tipping, tickets, or subscriptions.
This investment in creators will see Clubhouse testing payment features, for creators, in the next few months. A part of the newfound funding will also be used to roll out a Creator Grant Program to further support “emerging Clubhouse creators.” We don’t have any further details about this.
We’re reaching out to Clubhouse for further details, so stay tuned for an update on this.
