Curious about content-driven micropayments? You may want to join the Web Monetization Community

Cross-posted from DEV

Did you know that there's a way to monetize your posts online and get a drip of micropayments from some of your traffic?

It’s something we enabled on Forem about a year and a half ago, and while this continues to be an experiment which will need adoption to impact your bottom line, it is maturing and finding new and interesting use cases. Today, I’m excited to share that there’s a Forem dedicated to going deeper in this technology.

First, if the phrase "monetizing your posts" confused you, read more about how this works on dev.to here.


Meet the Web Monetization Community

Along the themes of why any Forem should exist as its own dedicated community center, Web Monetization Community allows folks to go deeper with this particular technology which is not mainstream yet. This community is a Grant for the Web initiative — so if you are curious, you should definitely consider the opportunity to apply for a grant and work with this technology in that capacity.

Intrigued?Join this Forem now and poke around.


One last thing. You’ll notice "Sign up with Forem" as an option alongside GitHub and email. This is a service we now offer to most seamlessly navigate the ecosystem and manage your identity. We want you to be able to bring your full self without having to bring your full data, so making this distributed ecosystem as straightforward as possible in the long run is really important. Create a Forem account and connect it with your DEV account via your settings. 🙂

Happy coding!
