Brilliant, that was a really good, forward looking, read which will hopefully raise the spirits of the XRP community . 

In the past few minutes a programme on the BBC tv in UK called Click has just mentioned Google, its involvement in gaming and looking for how it will monetise the streaming of games in the future. I can think of one way

Thanks for reading ... and I can think of one way as well! :yess:

Yes - there are multiple parties getting into the space generally, and only a small number getting into it at the intersection of streaming payments + crypto.  And of those, Ripple has already set aside $100 million. 

My take is that both Google and Ripple will grab a share, but Ripple specializes in streaming payments, whereas for Google, it's a branch-out of their focus.  And who knows?  They may be working together for all we know.  :JC_thinking:

Saturday newspaper, thanks @Hodor. Can't wait until it becomes a Metro News type for every nation to follow the briefs.

The only drawback to staying so up to date on the goings-on in crypto and xrp in particular, is that I have less to learn from your articles 😀

 

But it is still nice to see other takes, points of interest, and highlights of important lines, because things deserve a second read.

Hi toeMan.

In the XRP community we have this great Guy - Hodor. Posting a blog weekly and sometimes more often than that, He sucks up what´s going on in the XRP universe with fingertip feeling.

https://xrpcommunity.blog/the-next-frontier-monetization/

He is a valuabel asset to the XRP community. I think he deserves a pair of socks.
With the following message:

Hodor We Read

Best regards

Very exciting to learn that the infrastructure is ALREADY there for content providers to use for decentralized reimbursement. While I understood that this was a valid and important use case, I wasn't aware it was up and running. The connection with Digitec-Galaxus excites me too, because my view is that internet retail is important.....not just as a use case, but as a way people can get educated about the usefulness of XRP for a variety of other things.

As someone who occasionally writes about cryptos, I can see how much work went into this.....thanks for all you do.

This is a wonderful read.  The prices are flat but the development of the XRP ecosystem are exponential.  That means this period is more than just consolidation;  we are seeing energy being put into a pressure cooker.

Reading about the monetisation - I am immediately thinking that perhaps someone should set up a newspaper with celeb journalists and specialists that are paid directly by the public according to how many times their articles are being read/liked.  After it is set up other journalists could be added.  A sort of managed youtube of journalism?  People chosen for their expertise:

Foreign correspondence being piped from under-reported troubled spots and being funded by grateful readers

Specialist sections with specialist journalists on specialist subjects being funded by niche readers

Fake News being challenged and weeded out (although this could be hard to do because there is a natural tendency to label sceptics as deniers, maybe a system a bit like wikipedia operate)

In fact this is an ideal project for Wikipedia to handle:  WikiNews.com?

Excellent write up @Hodor this web monetization stuff gets me so excited. Trying to build new web services, while being handcuffed to an advertising business model is painful:fool:

These are the type of things that are frequently underestimated, in terms of their impact on humanity.

We currently live with an internet that is a one street world, and that street has more neon signs (ads) than Vegas. Web monetization will create an alternative new street, where you can simply walk into a store and get what you want and leave with a minimum number of neon signs and attention whoring.

Agreed, @KarmaCoverage!  It is a blight on the Internet. 

There were three or four projects that simultaneously seemed to realize the solution, as well, but I think the winner will need interoperability among currencies for the user.  And I think we all know which team has the special technology in place for interoperability ...
