During the MicroDonor project, Waag researched the web monetization model, that allows users to pay for online content and services by voluntary microdonations. It is an alternative for the current online revenue model, in which we pay with our personal data. The research focused on the question if web monetization could be applied and designed following the public stack model. By means of a blog series, a public event and three co-design sessions, answers were sought, an application was developed and the final report was drafted, leading to six recommendations.
