Tippr bot tweaks command syntax
Rob Danielson, developer and maintainer of the popular Bitcoin Cash tipbot Tippr, announced on Reddit that a change to the tipbot’s command syntax would be implemented soon. Danielson, also known as u/rawb0t in the social news aggregation site, explained the change:
In the thread, the developer explained that the change in syntax was made because the previous format “complicates future changes,” adding that the new syntax “makes things easier on other platforms, especially twitter.” Danielson also mentioned that as soon as he added Tippr bot support for Twitter, he removed the u/tippr <tip> format from Tippr bot’s wiki, replacing it with the reverse. The wiki now provides the following instructions for usage:
To tip someone on Twitter write something like
anywhere in your response to their tweet.
To tip someone on Reddit write something like
anywhere in your response to their post or comment.
At the time of writing, the post has been deleted, but the comment thread can still be read. The wiki’s page source logs the most recent revision to be 15 days old, made by u/rawb0t. Current statistics for Tippr bot users sending Bitcoin Cash can be viewed here.
The tipbot has been widely used by Bitcoin Cash users complimenting online content which they find useful or agreeable. Because not all recipients of the tips are necessarily Bitcoin Cash users, the swarm of friendly gestures all over Twitter and Reddit has helped attract users to the cryptocurrency.
Initiatives from developers across the internet like Tippr bot help create and sustain a welcoming and friendly atmosphere to the Bitcoin Cash community, particularly for those who are new to using cryptocurrencies. The tipbot eases social interactions and provides added value to the Bitcoin Cash network by cultivating a culture of mutual appreciation and respect among its users. It is a vital resource for an innovatively decentralized future decided by the many, not the few.
Note: Tokens on the Bitcoin Core (SegWit) chain are referenced as BTC coins; tokens on the Bitcoin Cash ABC chain are referenced as BCH, BCH-ABC or BAB coins.
Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV) is today the only Bitcoin project that follows the original Satoshi Nakamoto whitepaper, and that follows the original Satoshi protocol and design. BSV is the only public blockchain that maintains the original vision for Bitcoin and will massively scale to become the world’s new money and enterprise blockchain.
