Right now, the adoption is still new, and also content creators can decide on that. For example, if you visit devcareer.io and you don't have a coil extension on your browser, you will still be able to view all the contents, and if you have a coil account, coil will stream micropayments to me. I can decide to make content visible to only people with a monetization account (extension) on their browser. So it's totally depending on the creator.

With a user's monthly subscription of $5 on Coil, Coil will be paying the creator for the user.
Take it like, instead of subscribing to $5 on like 4 to 10 different websites, with one subscription, you get to see all the contents on this website. A win win.
