Hi Oliver,

Subscriptions, as you know them, aren’t part of Rafiki anymore. We have evolved Subscriptions and Mandates into the new Grants feature. It’s a much more flexible way to ask for access to portions of an account (like getting a certain amount of money every month, i.e. a subscription). Grants are being developed right now, and the first wallet to deploy the feature will probably be Fynbos. @adrianhopebailie has a better timeline for when that happens, but we’re working under the assumption it’s a matter of weeks for a closed beta release.

If you’d like to join the Rafiki meetings every week, the Google Meet link in the Rafiki GitHub repo is the way to go.

Thanks a lot for that information.

Fynbos sounds very interesting. Glad they are working on a good wallet supporting rafiki natively.
Grants seems to be a good innovation as it also is much more native to how people experience subscriptions, so an account being charged and it automatically being pulled in from bank or credit card, instead of loading up an account and then “sending” it somewhere.

Does Coil not have immediate plans to add “subscriptions”/Grants?

I am interested to join the Beta.
We want to use it for Memex Spaces to extend our already existing prototypical webmonetizsation API. Use case is that people who curate and annotate content into Spaces can then charge Substack like subscriptions from followers.

My ideal workflow would be supported by us integrating a white-label wallet provider that handles

  • Users getting a payment pointer under the hood
  • Users can use their credit card information to save a payment option that automatically charges them (once per month) for all their subscriptions and fees
  • Users can pay for their subs and fees with income to the wallet
  • Our Memex subscriptions fees can be charged via that wallet too.

This may not all be feasible short or mid-term though.
Noting this down for documentation reasons and user research info for you.

Is that project used in Fynbos?
Looks like they already provide some white labelling?
