The Future of Web Monetization

The current shape of the web is not focused on creators—it is a crowded, overdeveloped road full of chain stores, expecting its innovators to fit into a standard advertising model rather than owning their own real estate. Micropayments are an emerging way for creators to get paid directly, reducing or removing the need for individuals to resort to advertising for survival. This recorded talk will provide an accessible introduction to the future of micropayments, decentralized currencies, and the future of money. We’ll explore, from a global perspective, how micropayments can help inspire new ecosystems, how people can get involved, and how we can work together to bring a new level of democracy and community-building to the web.
