The Web Monetization API allows websites to automatically and passively receive payments from Web Monetization-enabled visitors.
The ability to transfer money has been a long-standing omission from the web platform. As a result, the web suffers from a flood of advertising and broken business models. Web Monetization provides an open, native, efficient, and automatic way to compensate creators, pay for content, and support crucial web infrastructure.
Until recently, there hasn't been an open, neutral and cost-efficient protocol for transferring money. Interledger provides a simple, interoperable, and currency-agnostic method for the transfer of small amounts of money. This opens up the possibility for streaming money, which makes more Web Monetization use cases possible for the first time.
