What's a Payment Pointer?

Stronghold powers U.S. dollar payments on Coil, the blogging platform that allows audiences to contribute to content creators via real time payments.

Before you can cash out your earnings in U.S. dollars, you’ll need to create a Stronghold account and connect it to Coil so funds are directed to your Stronghold wallet.
