The future of web monetization: Coil


A JavaScript browser API that allows the creation of a payment stream from the user agent to the website proposed as a W3C standard.

Wheat just recently added support for Coil. It uses a new open technology, Web Monetization (a proposed W3C standard), that allows browsers to securely pay websites, and, in turn, allows for websites to react to being paid, for example by turning off ads or providing extra functionality to paying visitors.

The current implementation mainly consist of a meta tag, allowing you to receive payment from the Puma browser and the Coil extension.

You can learn more about using Coil from their official doc. Once you are ready to go, simply add your payment pointer to the theme settings under Themes -> myTheme -> Payment Pointer
