How to Use Tippin.me
Tippin.me is a Lightening Network custodial web wallet that allows you to receive and cash out Lightning Payments. Creating an account sets up a tippin.me page that allows you to get tipped in Bitcoin via the lightening network by sharing a link.
The link looks like this https://tippin.me/@jack (it is https://tippin.me/ + plus your Twitter handle; so mine is https://tippin.me/@ThomasDemichele for example).
Setting it up is as easy as going to the site and creating an account and logging in with Twitter.
Here are a few reasons why this is cool.
- It gives people a way to tip for simple things online like good Tweets in a valued currency (Bitcoin) using a low cost payment system (Lightening Network).
- It teaches people about the Lightening Network (to send and cash out tweets, you have to get familiar with the Lightening Network).
- It is a simple app that requires nothing more than a Twitter account to set up.
TIP: You can download an extension for Firefox and Chrome that adds a Tippin tip button to every Tweet. That way if the person has the Tippin.me account, you’ll be able to Tippin them. For more, see: Receive tips on Twitter using Lightning Network.
NOTE: You should not store money in your Tippin wallet. This product is in early beta. It is neat, it is useful, it is not a long term storage solution 🙂
