If you’re going on a tipping spree, beware of any account that asks for tips - there are folks running bots to prey upon generous tippers.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lopp

If tipping someone unfamiliar with cryptocurrency, anything less than several dollars is effectively spam b/c there is time investment req’d

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lopp

Is it time to formalize the “rules” of tipping into netiquette? If you’re tipping a known bitcoin user, I think any amount > $0.01 is fine.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lopp

OTOH, tipping is a good example of allowing experimentation to occur in alt-coins and then merging successful experiments back to bitcoin.

Folks often note how quickly the Bitcoin ecosystem evolves, but I view recent surge in tipping interest & see BTC lagging DOGE by 11 months.
