@graeme This is great! Have you considered giving users that want to WM their posts/accounts the option of a pre-populated list of charity payment pointers?b We have found this can be an effective way to let creators use the ideas before they 1) can or 2) want to get a wallet. @divydovy built a ILF Wordpress plugin for WM that intervenes at the "add your PP" moment with offer of pre-populated lists. Maybe some creators would like "I am playing with WM and raising money for Creative Commons" however, the Uphold issue emerges here as its harder for nonprofits/NGOs to get/maintain their accounts.

Ooh that's a great approach, thanks for sharing @chrislarry !

I'll take a look at the Wordpress plugin, and definitely add it to our plans. It definitely reduces friction for people to get a feel for WM.

The "I am playing with WM and raising money for Creative Commons" could be something more shareable if presented as a social media card too, or even a digital sticker/badge for recognition on the platform
