Libre micropayments?

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.

Or, you know, run a crypto miner script on the website /s

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 do you do with this currency? Who accepts it to convert to euros? In this regard, even Faircoin sounds like a safer bet as it’s backed by local communities in many places.

You don’t need to convert it to Euros. Faircoin has suck for this reason. Libre currency, G1, is created to be used, not to be speculated or even for savings. You can use it here: Girala

All about open source! Feel free to ask questions, and share news, and interesting stuff!
