Hi @jgggr. It’s a good question. Right now, the option to boost may only appear if you have cycles available. If you are using the free version, then you may purchase cycles for boosting purposes.
We are changing this in the near future (next week or so) so that everyone can see the option to boost and you can just pay for it directly (without cycles). So if you don’t want to buy cycles and just wait for a bit, you’ll probably see the issue resolve itself soon.


Tagging on to this a little bit, the changelog for today mentions that powerups/boosts can no longer be gotten with cycles:
