A Web Monetization Story

@sharon and I are creating A Web Monetization Story, an interactive Web Monetization tutorial for online creators. The tutorial follows along with Auden, a blogger who is experimenting with Web Monetization on their site. If you are interested in setting up Web Monetization on your own site, or want to get others involved in Web Monetization, you may be interested in A Web Monetization Story.

We are creating this project for the BetaHack ‘Fix The Internet’ virtual Hackathon. There are seven days remaining in the hackathon. We are posting here, on DEV, in order to ask for honest feedback on what we have created.

We hope that you enjoy what we have created. We also hope to keep improving on it, so we want to hear from you! Thank you for reading and supporting us!


I run a blog about my adventures with Chicken — my dog!

Recently, I came across something called Web Monetization. It’s a new way for online creators to monetize their sites and for website visitors to support creators. It seeks to promote a more flexible, inclusive and privacy-respecting way of transferring money.

P.S. vote for @sharon in the 2020 HackerNoon Noonies - Best Web Monetization Innovator Category!

We'd love to hear your thoughts on any aspect of the site!

Most importantly, we hope it makes Web Monetization easier to get started with for online creators.

If there's anything we can do to improve upon our prototype, please let us know 😊
