Or — the main project could through one of the wallet providers (Uphold for example) obtain a main wallet. And then have sub wallets for each community member/contributor. This is a conversation that you'd need to have with the wallet provider though, @steve_g . We could make an introduction to further that conversation.

Or — if the content is housed within a say a Wordpress instance and is using the Wordpress plugin, I believe it allows the ability for multiple authors/contributors each having their own payment pointer. @steve_g

Yea, these are great suggestions. Thank you. Just for clarity, with the WordPress plugin, I'm reading that there's no main wallet. The contributors have wallets, and the plugin just directs to their wallets? Is there anything else that we'd need to consider with this approach?

I believe that that is correct with regards individual contributor wallets.

However, I would advise to open an issue or ask a Wordpress question directly to the team, @steve_g .

Any other suggestions @marcperel ?

Just picking up on this, @steve_g the WordPress plugin has one main
wallet link, not per-author or per-contributor links.

If this is something that you require, we can look into how we implement it, it's certainly within the realms of possibility.

Let me know your thoughts.

Thanks for this response. This is really helpful and it may be that we'd like to explore this further. We're currently exploring as to whether the monetization of content would go to the greater good of the community or to the individual producers. We're leaning towards the community model. As we get more clarity, I'll be sure to share. Also, if anyone has any examples of using monetization to sustain community work, I'd love to learn more.
