Current web monetization methods often rely on ads, paywalls, or at worst abuse of personal data. In order to examine better methods of web monetization, the IGDA Foundation has partnered with Grant for the Web to sponsor diverse game development teams to prototype alternative web monetization models. In this panel, the IGDA Foundation team will be discussing these alternative models with the creators, learning about the design process and implementation. Additionally, this panel will address current challenges with monetization and the future of web monetization as it relates to the games industry.
Attendees will learn what web monetization is and what challenges and safety concerns it presents. Additionally, attendees will hear from developers that designed alternative monetization models, focusing on their thought process and implementation.
This panel is intended for creators and publishers who are interested in learning about the state of monetization today and who are ready to explore alternative ways to generate funding. However, this talk is also intended for developers who are interested in potentially developing alternative models of monetization themselves.
