Thanks for the highlight Ayesha!

Webfunding.js in my post has been updated to include the new WebMonetization chaining class in its latest version! If anyone willing to try the feature in my post can be installed through NPM with npm i webfunding and start experimenting with it! (Though unfortunately I haven't updated the documentation since this update is subjected to change and not stable yet for production)
