Hi Cristian, absolutely nothing is a guarantee yet curation and publications increase your chances. A curated piece could suddenly take off and earn thousands a year later which is very unlikely for a non-curated piece.

I think it can be chicken and egg, a lot of people engaging with a piece usually means the piece is either very good or controversial which is why those people clicked on it in the first place. For reference, I have a post with over 100k views that has around 50 comments so that's one in 2000 people.
