How to make money with your content?


Making some side money with your content?

17 Nov, 2020 · 2 min read

If you spend so much time writing your articles and helping people solve problems, what’s wrong with getting paid for it?

Nothing right!

So today, I’ll show you how to make money with your content if you are on either one of these websites:

  • Hashnode
  • Hackernoon

We will be using Coil to get paid, which is a fantastic system. You buy a subscription, and every hour you spend on one specific content page, you’ll get $0,36.

As you can imagine, it won’t make you rich, but this is all the days.

To give you an overview, these are my earnings to this day:

How does it work

So to understand how this all works, there are two central systems.

If you’re in the game to earn money, all you need is an Uphold account.

If you’re also in it to give back to fantastic writers, you can get a subscription at Coil and start paying other writers for the articles you read.

Once you’ve set up your Uphold account and created your default payment method, you’ll be able to visit the “Add Funds” button on top and click “From Interledger Payment Pointer”.

You will need the link that it shows and starts with:


Getting paid on Hashnode

If you’re on Hashnode, you can easily add your payment pointer to your profile by visiting your dashboard.

Next, click on “Integrations”, at the bottom, you will see: Web Monetization Payment Pointer.

Paste your uphold link here.
