"For the first time, Web Monetization allows users to reward creators on the Web without having to rely on one particular company, currency, or payment platform. Companies such as Coil who are providing access to the Interledger network will have to compete with other access providers the same way that Internet Service Providers (ISPs) have been competing for decades."
Er, not sure competing ISPs make the most compelling argument 😅
"Without a truly open standard for payments, open systems in general have had a hard time competing with their proprietary counterparts."
Coil, Mozilla, Creative Commons have set up a $100 million grant to fix this. Very interesting!
I was going to recommend this to anyone in Seattle, but at $125, I guess only go if you're rich 😅
