“VK Donut is a platform which both content creators and their subscribers will like: an easy-to-manage subscription, audience has already joined the community, any type of content — from articles to podcasts — can be published. And the commission, given all the advantages, is the lowest on the market’, VK Donut CEO Dmitry Kostrukov commented.
