I believe that on a platform where almost everybody shows their earnings, hiding them is probably off-putting. If the earnings were in majority invisible from profiles, the situation would perhaps be different.
That is true, too.

I agree. We all see profiles where the freelancer has listed an hourly rate of $25, but then the majority of projects listed are 10,000 word e-books for $70 and that sort of thing. Clients are aware of that, too--you can write down anything for an hourly rate, but it's the track record that shows that you are actually commanding those rates, and great reviews/ratings on a high dollar project carry more weight than on the $70 e-book, because there's a presumption that the expectations were higher.
