Now I'm much more excited to get my latest post out! Thanks DEV team!

It would be interesting in the next few weeks to see some rough analytics for avg. $/view that a popular post gets. Then in the longer term, actually plotting that across months to see if there is a measure increase or trend.

Hey Ben, a small doubt about web monetization. Where does this money come from? If you could point to a doc which explains how the whole thing works.

The money comes from other users/readers who use web monetization. As far as I know, Coil is the only payment service available right now, and costs $5/month.

DEV is actually hosting a hackathon right now centered around web monetization and the announcement post explains it all pretty well. Here's a link to it.
