I am just in the process of setting up the first Web Monetization Tipping Gallery, post MozFest.
If you'd like Web Monetized digital assets of your creation and / or those of your community added to the gallery, then please share a link and associated image to your Web Monetized digital asset(s) in the comments below.
Any assets there by July 26th will be added to the gallery in time for the July 27th Tipping Party to celebrate the first year anniversary of our community events!
To sign up for the Tipping Party, visit: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/385752856177
There's a party favour for everyone that signs up for the July 27th Tipping Party, in the form of a free 6-month Coil membership with Coil's experimental tipping feature and $10 US of pre-paid tips. And best all, you get to hangout with me on my birthday!
Hope to see you on July 27th! (and see your links for the gallery in the comments below.)

Salam hormat, @ambangpriyo.
I know Indonesia is one of the countries in which there has been difficulty with the digital wallets. Hoping that solutions for that can be found among the latest Grant for the Web Call for Proposals applications.
In the meantime, @radhyr has been looking into and experimenting with this from Indonesia for some time now, and may be able to share findings / potential work arounds.
Looking forward to diving further into your work.
Thank you, @ambangpriyo, and thanks for sending your Web Monetized asset to share in the gallery, via Twitter. That is greatly appreciated.
Have you taken a look at GateHub? gatehub.net/
Also, if you don't mind my asking @ambangpriyo, which country are you in? I know the most recent call for proposals that went out was with the hopes of finding more solutions to creating access to these protocols for all.
In the meantime, for those who are currently unable to set up digital wallets to create payment pointers, there is a list of Social Good Payment Pointers that people can use, here: community.interledger.org/grantfor...
I think the KYC for both Uphold and Gatehub ask for documents showing proof of identity, banking, and address for all users, no matter which country they live in. As a Canadian, I've had to provide a variety of documents on two separate occasions, in order to keep my Uphold account.
It should be noted, that these are the digital wallets asking these questions to meet the required financial regulations. None of these queries have anything to do with Interledger, so it is not Interledger that is restricting access.
Shout out to more of the recent grantees to see if you have any links to Web Monetized assets to add to the Summer Tipping Gallery before Wednesday July 27th's summer gathering. Send me your links: @tabi, @tadej, @ogopedia, @nescampos, @ianconsolata, @iekmanis, @andreytorres,
Thanks Erica. I might be a little late to the party but here are the links for ITADI: itadibody.com/blogs/news & itadicoffee.com/blogs/news
Not too late, Tabi. Adding now.
WHAT?!?!? It's your birthday! That's super mega exciting!
Also, thanks for putting multiple timezones in the invitation since I seem to constantly get those wrong...
You have @ayeshaware to thank for the multiple timezones!
As for the birthday, well I mean yeah, as this means you are all essentially getting invited to my birthday party, and really does life get any more exciting than that!?! It should just be strictly noted that while dancing on the tables is encouraged, this is a strictly NO CLOWN event.
Hey ! Erica,
I am an artist starting to use the interledger protocol for my creations. @lwlkarama proposed me to participate in this share session. One of my content can be found at : greeniour.github.io/Mosic/chakra-s...
Let me know if I can still be part of the session !
Thank you for your help and time.
Also, if you are able to, do join us at tomorrow's event. eventbrite.com/e/ilf-july-communit...
Yes, you can absolutely still be a part of the session! Just 'hanging' the projects up on the wall in the virtual gallery now. Will be sure to include your site.
Thank you very much for your support ! Looking forward for the final wall !
Shout out to some of the more recent grantees to see if you have any links to Web Monetized assets to add to the Summer Tipping Gallery before Wednesday July 27th's summer gathering. Send me your links: @phivk, @gunnar, @denntenna, @randylubin, @nikorawrs, @codeangel, @tchingonzoh,
Thanks Erica! The Story Synth Gallery is now full of games!
You can tip any of them, though some use probabilistic rev sharing with the Story Synth wallet, some have a charity as their chosen wallet, and some only have Story Synth wallet.
It'd be great if a future version of the standard allowed folks to name their wallet via metadata and then tippers could chose which wallet to tip (if there are multiple wallet links on the site).
Feel free to add our collaboratively monetized story from MozFest: exquisite-garden.mysilio.page/. Attendees can add their own contributions and read the fascinating absurdist story told line by line by users of Web Monetization. They can even tip the contributions to the story they appreciated the most.
Thanks Ian. @tani already shared that link with us for the gallery. Do either of you have anything else that you'd like shared in the gallery?
Ah, nope. Just what Tani shared. Thanks! :)
Thanks for reading my posts @ambangpriyo. Finally a fellow Indonesian here in Web Monetization community... (I think there are more already registered, but I never actually seen them around).
To add on Uphold account, yes, they don't cover Indonesia for their service. I think Gatehub does, but their KYC is too complicated that they require documents like passport or photo of physical document that states your name along of your address (I think if you have PLN bill under your name you can use that for KYC verification). I can't really sure whether they actually support Indonesian account for Interledger or not. I once registered at Gatehub and use bank statement as KYC document but they ended up asking for passport, so I stopped there and haven't had an account to use for Web Monetization until now.
For now, those two are the only active providers of digital wallets for Web Monetization. But like Erica said, some more might follow on this year's wave of grant for the web. Though we probably won't see alternatives soon since this year grants only for planning phase.
If you still want your post to receive Web Monetization stream, you still can update your profile to include payment pointers to non-profits' digital wallets. Although by doing this the money won't actually sent to you but will go as donation those organizations instead, and you can't directly access how much your posts actually earn. You can check list of non-profit payment pointers here at community.interledger.org/grantfor...
Another shout out to more recent grantees to see if you have any links to Web Monetized assets to add to the Summer Tipping Gallery before Wednesday July 27th's summer gathering. Send me your links: @amozeak, @micopeia, @senkgoky, @davidbenoit, @tessel, @seyiosunade_219, @victoria_baines
Best wishes for you too @ambangpriyo
You can ask me about Web Monetization more later if there's something you want to know and I'll try to answer the best of my ability.
They're definitely asking for those. From my experience companies from the EU has stricter KYC than companies in the US. Thanks for sharing with us some of your experience on Uphold, Erica. 🙂
Yes. This is correct. My bad for the slip saying that KYC for support for Interledger. What I meant was KYC for access for account on the platform that support Interledger. A few words difference but could meant two different things if read by people who not familiar with it. Thanks for clarifying that for me Erica.
