Coin of the Realm is a system that allows WordPress publisher to reward their readers for linking back to the word press blog. It¬ís at its heart an affiliate system set up for the general user instead of companies combining crowd sourcing into the standard affiliate model.
The way Coin of the realm works is by generating unique links to all of the pages and post on a WordPress sight for each Registered user. When that user uses the link to reference the sight on some other website every reader who click on the link generates a referral in the COTR system. COTR converts referrals into coins that the registered user can use to buy things in the automatically generated store page.
Coin of the realm supports 3 types of reward products; digital downloads, comment badges, and donation drives. These products are quick to create in the store interface and can be purchased with either referral generated coins or with regular currency. COTR support both the paypal and verotel payment gateways for making purchases.

Whatís the point of this plugin?
The basic idea is to give WordPress authors a way to reward their readers for sharing the WordPress site. The viral sharing of a website is key to its success you could even say that sharing of sites is the coin of the realm (get it
wink wink) but there has been no tool to reward this essential behavior.
