Just got an email from them a minute ago. They developed a Chrome extension for Reddit that puts a "give bitcoin" link next to comments, which makes tipping very simple. Obviously connects to your Coinbase account for funding. The coolest part is that tipping non-Coinbase users automatically sets them up with an account. I'll probably still use /bitcointip but this is a really cool, frictionless way to get interested people set up with a Coinbase account to actually buy / sell on their own. Grab it here Here's what it looks like. EDIT: Here's the email.
We’re big fans of reddit, and have long wanted an easy way to send people bitcoin “tips” through the site. When someone makes a particularly educational/funny/awesome comment, it would be great to send them a tiny amount of bitcoin - both to reward them and help spread awareness about bitcoin. Luckily, Coinbase’s free micro-transactions make this possible. We spent some time thinking about how to make the process as simple as possible for people new to bitcoin, since this would be key to adoption outside of the main bitcoin sub-reddit. Matt Corallo helped us out last week by putting together a Chrome Extension that brings it all together. You can install it by clicking here. The extension adds a small “give bitcoin” link next to posts and comments when you visit reddit. Try clicking a link and it will ask you to authenticate with your Coinbase account (or sign up if you don’t have one). Once you’ve signed in you can now send bitcoin tips on reddit! The recipient will get a private message on Reddit with a link to claim their funds the first time they receive a tip. Future tips will flow right into their Coinbase account (so they won’t get spammed with messages for every tip). Any tips you send which go unclaimed will be returned to your account automatically after 60 days. The code for BitTip is completely open source so feel free to check it out. It also makes use of the new tokens API call we added that lets you send people links which can be redeemed for bitcoin. Install the Chrome Extension to get started and feel free to send us any feedback on the GitHub page for the project.

Hey r/starcraft, it's my 7th cake day and you're my favourite subreddit. Have a dollar!
I've been working hard on combining my two hobbies into one, apparently it's better to whole-ass one thing than to half-ass two things... But enough of that. Post here for a free dollar tip. EDIT: I'm using the reddit bitcoin tip bot to do this. Why? Because I've always wanted to do this :) Link here for a public record of the tips. I love the open-ness of it all. EDIT2: Alrighty, all gone! I think I sent a few of you guys some, but ran out before. Oopsie! I am n00b, hear me roar! Will check the rejected payments and re-send when I've re-funded. Thanks so much everyone for particpating!
Why I believe we're on the cusp of the 3rd great Bitcoin bubble
We've recovered from the last crash You might think it's a bit early (based on the time frame for the last recovery), but things are looking a lot different than in 2011. I would suggest its because the last bubble popped prematurely due to Mt. Gox's failure of a trading engine. Interest in buying Bitcoins has gone up to its highest point since the last bubble. There's a similar spike in general interest. Partly helped along by the Silk Road news. The network is being used at the same rate as during the last bubble. The Bitcoin ATM story (see below) is causing Bitcoin to trend in Canada on Google (was #1 for a bit). The $27 story (see below) will almost certainly cause a large spike worldwide in Google trends once they're updated up to yesterday. Lots and lots of new businesses now accept Bitcoins One legitimate criticism of Bitcoin last year was the lack of places to spend them. We basically just had Alpaca Socks, Reddit and Wordpress, we've grown a lot since then!
The $27 story is going massively viral I think the attention this story is getting took a lot of us by surprise. We're thinking "of course if you bought Bitcoins in 2009 you're rich" and it didn't make much of a splash. But to the rest of the world it's a very novel and interesting story.
Institutional money is coming Afraid with the price at $200 that it will be hard to find enough moms and pops to keep money coming in faster than miners are selling? Don't be, there are individuals out there with a net worth higher than the entire Bitcoin ecosystem.
Governments are explicitly saying it's not illegal More and more governments are either saying Bitcoins are legitimate currency, or releasing guidelines for exchanges to comply with anti-money-laundering laws.
New generation of exchanges Mt. Gox's terrible trading engine was a huge factor in the last crash. They couldn't keep up with all the new interest. This time around there are more exchanges in more countries, and not a single point of liquidity.
Learned about Lightning Network today. Mind blown.
I finally looked into how the Lightning Network works, and holy shit it's a game changer (on top the already existing game changer, btc). Zero fee transactions or extremely low fee transactions (depending on the number of hops in the payment path). Even 1 or 10 sat tx for 0 fee, if you have a payment channel open with the node you're paying. If you're interested in learning about Lightning, these videos are pretty good: 402 Payment Required: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLmoQ11MXEmajsUw95Fq6fHzXnVmoMPIeV We know Btc is going to dominate as a store of value, but Lightning is going dominate as a scalable payment network This will put so much pressure on Visa, Cirrus, Paypal, Venmo, etc after it gets more adoption. In the very near future, electronic payment companies & banks will need to "pivot to a business model of creating value", instead of just living off rents from their legacy banking infrastructure.
