Charging limits your user pool.
Not only limits user pool but limits range of feedback.
When charging it is going to take you longer to get the same amount of feedback.
There is a difference between bootstrapping and self-funding.
With bootstrapping you need revenue to stay alive.
When you’re not charging you might receive too much feedback particularly from people who would never pay for the product.
If you don’t charge you don’t know if people will pay for your product or if they’re just using it because it is free.
