Hi Jim, so sorry if there's been some confusion, but the good news is that yes! As a contributor to TalkMarkets, you are earning equity for helping us grow. As others have mentioned, we have links throughout the site and in the emails you receive, about the equity program. But I see from our records that you had been in touch with Richard Hernandez and Caitlin Fottrell about our equity program, from our Welcome Team, back in 2017 when you first joined the site. But I can resend you the intro email we shared, which provides a thorough walkthrough of our contributor program. I'll also message you with some more info directly as a lot of this info is for contributor eyes only.

Don't hesitate to reach out when you are confused about this!
