Monetizing your blog with cryptocurrencies

Click for: original source

Current internet has been dominated by huge corporations, spying on users and selling their data to the advertisement companies. Amount of ads in internet is unbearable, pushing the quality content out in favour of mass produced click baits. By Damian Sosnowski.

Nowadays, monetization of the blog usually boils down to displaying ads via some 3rd party ad provider like Google. This however degrades the user experience, both in terms of page performance and “stealing” the users attention. It’s a well known fact that most of the ads providers are actually tracking users, invading their privacy and selling their private data.

For those reasons, people are actively blocking these ads, either via browers’ plugins or by using browsers that have this kind of protection built in by default (like Brave). Additionally, some of you, like me, don’t want to host this kind of content adding your share to the progressing degeneration of internet society.

The content of the article:

  • Crypto vs traditional payment systems
  • Available crypto-based monetization options
  • BAT Project
  • Coil
  • Steemit and other similar platforms

The biggest advantage of Coil is its monetization API. It allows creators to actually give something for the users that decided to pay for the content. This might be a deal breaker in terms of its wider adoption as it helps to create a situation when both sides are actually rewarded via the payments system.

Fortunately you don’t have to choose which payment system to implement on your site as BAT and Coil don’t interfere with each other, so use both and enjoy your soon-to-be-crypto-millionaire status ;). Nice read!
