I just have the 100 year old idea. Framework ! :D Like, enable by default for users to input their wallets into system. Then all payments made by looking at post of specific users could contain additional tag where website could split payments in two parts, one for the website, another for the user that wrote the content. Like YouTube, they could use this to avoid having ads on video but still pay the content creator also. They could allow users to input start and end times for ads which are part of the video, and if micro payment is made player skips ads automatically :D

Just brainstorming in comment section. I might make stupid video website which can solely rely on these things just for fun. But I doubt it so if anyone likes the idea he can make a go at it.

Oh yeah maybe something like a "nice" stackoverflow where you can ask "stupid" questions without getting shamed, but if you get a lot of + points you get micro payments, goes both for answers and questions. Viewers could be "charged" by quality of content they're looking at, so if they want "best" answer they might need to allow payment to go through.

Ideas are great. The whackier the better. While they may not all work or be viable ultimately it's the creative experiments are going to help move the web standard forward and more so catalyse the content ecosystem. Go wild...

I might just for fon xD. I may be underestimating some of my ideas just because I don't see some actual value in it for myself but it might be fun to learn a new technology. Although I dislike frontend mainly because of design, it could be family time well spent, wife using being social media marketer with great knowledge in video and image editing could make some templates. Like instead of board games people could start doing this during lockdowns XD
