The social network Clubhouse adds and follows. The application of audios is in negotiations to raise new funds from investors in the context of a financing round that will evaluate the US company at about US $ 4 billion (about € 3.4 billion).
The company is currently valued at approximately one billion dollars, which makes this potential financing (the amount of which has not been revealed) quadruple its value.
The news is advanced this Tuesday by the agency “Bloomberg”, which cites sources related to the business, and comes a day after it was revealed that the creators of content on app – those who record the audio programs – will soon be able to earn money from their account on the platform.
This is the Clubhouse Payments, a proposal from the technology company in San Francisco to allow users of the social network to send money directly to the creators of the content they follow and follow, that is to say “digital broadcasters”.
The Clubhouse is only a year old and was born from a team made up of entrepreneurs Paul Davison and Rohan Seth, founders of Alpha Exploration. When the startup raised a series B round led by Andreessen Horowitz in January, it said that part of the $ 100 million (approximately € 84 million) funding was for a grant program to audio creators – and complied.
