Year round learning for web and digital professionals

Web Directions Safe ’21 session spotlight–Pay the Web Forward

Pay the Web Forward

Trying to get paid on the Web today, as a creator, is broken and unfair. 70% of ad spend globally goes to only 2 platforms. Until recently, the Web couldn’t natively compete.

A new W3C Standard proposal, Web Monetization, uses the Interledger Protocol to enable developers like you to make money from your work in an open, native, and seamless way. And all that with as little as a single line of HTML!
