On articles that have the “this article accepts micropayments” banner, if the author highlights your comment then your wallet will receive a share of the article’s earnings.
This works by putting your wallet address in the page for a proportion of visits – your wallet gets paid by anyone using Coil during those visits.
If you do try this out, please share your feedback with us by email.
Note: the CommentX project is experimental. The above information is subject to change as the project progresses. Payments may stop at any time due to technical or other reasons. We intend to update this page to reflect the latest state of this micropayments and revenue system and to publish the code open-source for transparency. Feb 2021
