What are micropayments?

Micropayments are very small amounts you pay for online content. By actually paying for this content the quality is naturally going to be better than free content.

Micropayments form one part of the ongoing debate of "free" vs "paid" content, made prominent by people such as Rupert Murdoch and newspapers like the New York Times.

Where does this technology come from?

The core technology has successfully been in operation since 2004 at http://www.towergames.com and was migrated to Fraxion Payments in 2010.

What about "free" content?

We don't believe in it. What we believe in is "fair exchange". http://www.fraxionpayments.com/2010/02/blog/paidcontent/fair-exchange/.

Will this help online journalism?

It can only help. With 31,000 journalist laid off in the USA alone over the last few years this is now a great way for those same people to get back to work, but this time for themselves doing what they know best. That is, using their contacts to discover and create great stories.
