This is well explained, I really hope this gets a lot of grounds and is widely accepted. For the privacy part is really interesting as I think this will end a lot of unwanted ads displaying in your feeds.

Web monetization is currently being discussed as a standard, and a lot of popular web vendors are on this.
Here's an interview the founder of Coil had with the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C)

About the ads, Web monetization as a term here, coil as a provider, and tons of other providers will in no single way include ads either wanted or unwanted to users. If you're on a website that's monetized as a user, and you're seeing ads, it's because the creator is using an entirely different ad vender on that website, this in no way has anything to do with Coil as a provider.

Let me put it like this, the term Web Monetization here is in no way related to showing users ads.

Just adding this here:
The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) is an international community that develops open standards to ensure the long-term growth of the Web.
