I really like this idea of coil.com, supporting creators based on how often you engage with their content, but don’t really like the cryptocurrency and the closed source aspect. Flattr seems better but is still closed source. Is there anything I can use to fund my website?

I think the best shot you have atm is simply to accept donations on LiberaPay, OpenCollective, or wtv.

What’s wtv? But yes sure donation sounds like a much healthier model than microtransaction. I never understood the craze about those: why would i use microtransactions (as a spender or receiver)? Isn’t that essentially the appeal of capitalism and pay-per-view reaching into cyberspace?


What’s wtv?

whatever ;)

ha thanks :)
