...You won't make a lot of money right away with this new feature, but you can now enable web monetization by adding a "payment pointer" to your account.

It's also in beta so there may be some kinks to work out.
Full details of how payment pointers in this other post...
I just wanted to mention how happy I am personally that we were able to ship functionality. It allows individual authors on DEV to get on board — right through their settings! As more Forems pop up, platform creators and individual members may be able to share in the pie. A lot of adoption has to happen for this to work out, but it's a future we're happy to be pushing.
Web monetization is not baked into browsers yet, but it may be sometime soon. Mozilla's support for Grant for the Web is cool to see. This could be an important part of content-driven web in the future.
I'm so excited about this collab! Immediately thought of you all when I met Coil in Amsterdam! I think adding web monetization to DEV is the perfect fit and incentive for authors!
Coil is the company principally behind web monetization. You can support web-monetized content creators by spending $5/month through their service.
