ChangeTip’s moves in digital micropayments have already pushed Coinbase out of the sector. The startup hasn’t rested on those laurels, as it announced yet another integration, this time with the Disqus blog commenting service.
How it works
Upon “hearing” the recipient’s name mentioned across various social networks, the Bitcoin tipping service responds to a system of bots to pass the message to his or her wallet from the sender’s.
.ChangeTip’s internal ledger does the processing off-chain, which means it can send tips almost instantly.
A busy few months
Major announcements have almost become routine for ChangeTip since the San Francisco startup received $3.5M in funding last December. ChangeTip‘s backers of note include Twitter, Reddit, GitHuab, Slack, WordPress, Google+ and Tumblr.
The company has also entered the donation micropayment scene through its partnership with BitGive Foundation, a non-profit.
