Hello DEV community,

my name is Ali and I'm a member of the team here at Coil working on Web Monetization. If you have any questions about Grant for the Web, Web Monetization, or Coil please let me know.

I'm pretty new to Coil (3 whole weeks!) so I'll be likely be learning some things right along with you. That said, I'll be coordinating with plenty of folks from the Coil team to ensure we're supporting the community with technical guidance as people start on their projects.

DEV is a wonderful and supportive community, and I know I can count on your patience as much as I'm anticipating your creativity. All of us at Grant for the Web & Coil are excited to see the amazing projects you are going to create!

Yes, we are looking for people to build projects that utilize and/or promote the Web Monetization API in the hackathon.

Broadly, projects can include things like building new plugins or interfaces, or writing documentation and templates. It also includes projects that focus on enabling the creation, distribution, and discoverability of web monetized content.

Hope this helps!

Hello Ali.
Coil seems a really nice idea and as an author on Dev.to, looking forward for deep integration between the two platforms.

Not sure if it´s the best place to ask this, but a suggestion for improving the onboarding process in Coil Platform is to improve the "Select Payout option" page.

I know very few about Bitcoins and Blockchain and on that page I am requested to select a payment method. I have no idea what xrp, Gatehub, Stronghold or Payment pointers are. Any user like me can feel a little bit "intimidated" with that page.

I would choose Gatehub, just because it supports payouts in EUR and SEPA transfers but not sure if there are better options.

It would be nice to have some kind of introductory guide on the topic and provide a link that page.
