1.24 and new sites adopting the microtip meta tag
April 7, 2015, 6:43 p.m., by chris
Autotip Chrome Extension 1.24 has just been released. It contains some very minor changes from 1.23 which was released a few days ago.
Also, some of you may rememberI mentioned the Autotip Giveaway Program a few weeks ago. That idea is still on, and the first drawing will happen this upcoming friday. All the code for drawing the winners can be found on github
Basically, each week, we'll be giving away 2% of the total donation taken in. For this coming friday, 82 cents will go out to half of all people who made a tip within the preceding 7 days. Based on current usage, only 3 or 4 people will get a payout. If more people use Autotip, more people will get a payout. If more people donate to Autotip more money will go to each winner. You know if you've won a payout by there being a transaction in your Autotip deposit address that you didn't put there. The last 3 or 4 versions of the chrome extension has code to notify you via a browser notification if you've received a payout.
Since there are so few sites at this time that support the microtip meta tag specification, I feel its appropriate to mention when a new site adds the met a tag. A few days ago I noticed coindesk.com
has the microtip meta tag on every page. Theres also backed.io
, as well as a few others. If you know of any other sites that are using the meta tag, please post the link onto the Autotip subreddit
