Welcome to the third edition of my Coil income reports, which I publish monthly.
Having Coil integrated into this WordPress website enables me to receive tiny micropayments streamed to me in real time as visitors are reading my articles — provided they have an active Coil subscription.
While it is also possible to receive those payments in US dollars, I am receiving mine in XRP, which is a cryptocurrency used for different use cases.
This Month’s XRP Balance
My XRP balance for March 2020 that I received through Coil
Last month I received a total of 3.88906 XRP, which corresponds to a decrease of -26 % compared to the previous month. With the exchange rate of XRP/EUR on the last day of the month that was worth roughly 0,63 €. That corresponds to a decrease of -43 % compared to the previous month.
I wasn’t as active with publishing and promoting my posts compared to February. Might be part of the explanation for this drop.
This Month’s Traffic Analytics
Chart of my blog traffic analytics for March 2020
Let’s measure it against my blog traffic analytics from last month.
As you can see above, I had 523 unique visitors on my blog in the past month. Divided by the amount I earned through Coil makes 0,001 € that I earned per visitor.
One more thing happened this month, which caught me by surprise — I received my first boosting payment from the Coil boost program.
On March 20, I received an extra 438.752828 XRP, which was worth $ 72.49 at that moment. I am beyond humbled, very grateful, and really excited to continue working with this new technology and sharing my experiences along the way.
You can check out all my monthly Coil income reports, which I create to track the development and perceived adoption of Coil.

Even if the value per visit is not huge well done Benny, still awesome to be a pioneer!
Definitely! It’s super exciting to document the process, the actual numbers are just filling in some information now. ?
Looks like to up vote the post we have to go back to the Coil application. I wonder if there is a way to implement in WordPress?
Unfortunately, this is not really possible right now. This makes it harder for now to drive traffic from actual Coil users, as up votes are right now the most important metric to promote a post on Coil. If you don’t get them, you become invisible very quickly.
Maybe I can find a way to encourage people to go back to Coil to do their up vote. ?
Have you seen any results with Coil so far? Curious to try or not? ?
