Autotip

Decentralized Cryptocurrency Microtipping Platform.

Microtip Meta Tag Specification

Lets say you're a blogger. You would like to earm money from the audience that reads your blogs. One way to do this is to put ads on your site. Ads can be easily blocked, and for users who don't block them, they are annoying to look at. Getting started using the platform is as easy as adding a snippet of code to every page that contains content. Somewhere in the HTML document of your blog's header, you can add a meta take like this:


        <meta name="microtip" content="1HWpyFJ7N6rvFkq3ZCMiFnqM6hviNFmG5X" data-currency='btc' data-recipient="Autotip Giveaway Program">
    
Replace the value of `content` with your actual bitcoin address. To get started with bitcoin, go to bitcoin.org. You can also use altcoin addresses:

        <meta name="microtip" content="Lb78JDGxMcih1gs3AirMeRW6jaG5V9hwFZ" data-currency='ltc'>
    

Multiple tipping addresses per page

The standard also permits the use of multiple tip addresses. In the case that the extension finds multiple tip addresses, the tip gets split amoung each address equally. Currently, this extension does not support sending tips to altcoin addresses, but support is planned.
