How Wattpad is Transforming Book Publishing
In April, Wattpad receieved $46 million in funding led by OMERS Ventures, reported TechCrunch, and with around 25 million monthly active users, it's not hard to see why. Lau told TechCrunch, "To give some idea of how much content users are posting on Wattpad, they're uploading one chapter every half a second. That's about 150,000 uploads every day, and if you translate that to reading time, that's about 10 hours of reading uploaded to Wattpad every minute."
