Dedicated to building a better business model for the web

At Coil, we’re working to provide you with better ways to access and reward the creators, publishers and platforms that create the content you love. All without relying on advertising, site-by-site subscriptions or tracking your every move.

Streaming Payments

We do this by using a new, open technology called Web Monetization. Web Monetization enables streaming micropayments - aka tiny fractions of a penny - to instantly flow to websites as you read, watch and listen.

Open ecosystem

Coil was intentionally built using open technology to ensure compatibility with competing services and any currency so that you - and the publishers, platforms, and creators you want to support - have more freedom of choice now and in the future.

Meet the team

We’re an eclectic mix of people who love the web and want to make it better. We’re headquartered in San Francisco with an office in Cape Town and satellite home offices across the US and abroad.

Imgur launches an ad-free subscription service, powered by micropayments
