This is a great idea, but I think it should be on the total number of opens rather than subscribers (as anyone can just upload a list) or only on subs gained through the platform (i.e. uploads don’t count).
I’d personally love it if beehiiv were to launch plaques for reaching 10K subs, 100K subs and 1M subs (has anyone got there yet?!).
I think this could also be done for content websites, when people achieve 10K/100K/1M unique visits per month, by platforms such as Ezoic who would be able to verify.
If none of this happens, you can always just go out and buy your own from companies creating them, with Plaque To Reality being my favourite:
