    My guess it's affiliate marketing. So they get paid when users buy stuff via the app like music or movies. It's not technically advertising, but it's pretty much the same.

    edit: Affiliate marketing usually requires some pretty intense tracking...kinda BS they said their app has no algorithms...There's nothing wrong with collecting data about what your users do in your applications, what you do with that data is what's important.

      Hi Alex,

      The first million users will have access to Vero free for life and that new users after that will pay a small yearly fee.

      Since we’re not doing advertising we’re not manipulating the feed with algorithms in any way and so our feed is chronological. This means that all posts reach all followers without the need to boost them.

      With our Buy Now feature, Pre-Approved profiles on Vero can sell product directly to their own followers which doesn’t need advertising.

      Our goal is to build a different kind of network from the ground up. One that focuses on the user experience and has our users be our customers rather than future advertisers.

      Hope that answers some questions or doubts.
