At this time, Civil only supports ETH-based Boosts. 100% of the ETH you give to the newsroom will go directly to the newsroom. The Civil Media Company does not take any cut of the amount a newsroom raises.
There is always a very small network transaction cost for sending ETH from your wallet. Usually it’s just a few cents. This cost goes to the Ethereum miners who perform computational work needed for your content to be included on the Ethereum blockchain.
