Pay per Content with crypto


I had an idea for a free per content payment solution, but i’m not too familiar with the ghost framework.

I’m thinking of implementing IOTA as a PpC method into ghost. A similar module already exists in wordpress (but sadly outdated) and it makes perfect sense as IOTA is feeless, so you can charge even a few cents per read without the need for a payment service provider.

Sadly though ghost only offers an API and not plugins. Could anyone propose what would be the best practice for implementing a such thing?

My thoughts:

  1. run a subdomain service which can access the api and provides the payed content after payment
  2. fork ghost and integate the payment option into the framework (token based access after payment check)

I’m quite familiar with IOTA, but i could need some help with the ghost stuff. So feel free to contact me :slight_smile:

I already integrated for donations but that ain’t exactely what i need.

You should change this in the “Ideas” category :slight_smile:

I started with a little prototype. Currently i use the admin API to fetch the html of a paid post, but sadly this is quite an ugly solution, as the blogs style is lost.
I had the idea of using a proxy to proxy the entire page to the user and giving the proxy a paid membership/admin rights.
