Coil will reportedly use the funds to create an ecosystem for creators, developers, companies and nonprofits that use XRP through the Web Monetization open standard. Coil CEO Stefan Thomas commented: 

“Creators want more choice and control over how their content is monetized and distributed […] Web Monetization provides a solution that is more fair, open and inclusive for creators and fans around the globe.”

“Advertising and site-by-site subscription models are ready for disruption,” said Ethan Beard, Senior Vice President of Xpring. “The low cost and fast transactions of XRP makes it an ideal tool for Coil to offer an alternative monetization method and have a positive impact on creators. At Xpring, we build infrastructure and support projects that enable the Internet of Value and increase the utilization of XRP —  we’re excited to support Coil and the team in their journey.”
