On Ethereum, any node will get incentives(gas) when it wins a transaction. If I'm a Dapp developer and provide a unique service, how do I make my living out of it. Do I need to specify a gas for the author? or What's other mechanism other than asking for donations?

The crypto-futurist answer is that your contract does something useful for people, they send it ether, and it sends a proportion of those ether to you.

The practical answer is that you make silly Proof of Concept dapps for financial institutions, and they pay you regular money.

    "...they send it ether, and it sends a proportion of those ether to you..." Is there a silly PoC for this? :) – cogitoergosum Apr 18 '17 at 16:31
