We created a module called Give, that allows site owners to create donation forms, and manage donations from within the site itself.

Here's a breakdown of how it works agaric.coop/blog/build-and-man

another thing i want to work on is creating an economic network inside the fediverse.

by this, i don’t mean something like bitcoin or some other method of value exchange, but instead solving a more fundamental problem.

the fediverse is largely comprised of people who have small businesses (like bespoke commissions, etsy stores, small companies, etc.), but we don’t have any way of discovering who can sell or provide what you’re looking for.

i want to try to find solutions to this problem — keeping $ flowing inside the fediverse, from participant to participant, helps indirectly to fund fediverse development: if there’s more $ flowing inside the fediverse, then there’s more opportunity for that $ to make it into the hands of the people building the network. also, keeping the $ inside the fediverse helps to more directly benefit fediverse participants in general. it’s a good situation for everyone.

keeping more of the $$$ inside the fediverse is a very early step toward building a self-reliant fediverse, which contributes to the eventual death of the nation-state.
