Tip-botA bot that allows users to tip each other in cryptocurrencies with a single command!
Tip-bot is a Discord bot that allows Discord users to easily tip each other in cryptocurrencies.
Tip-bot is meant to be as easy to use as possible. Most users are only going to need two commands: One command for depositing cryptocurrencies to Tip-bot's wallet, and one command for tipping.
To get started, write
!tip help in a server where Tip-bot is present.
Deposit one of the coins Tip-bot supports with the command
!tip deposit <coin>, for example
!tip deposit LTC.
Tip someone by writing the command
!tip <@user> <amount> <coin>, for example
!tip @joe 1 LTC.
Check your balance with the command
For more commands use the command
Tips occur immediately, and off-blockchain. When you tip a person, an amount equal to the tip is removed from your balance and added to that persons balance.
Tipping supports the SI prefixes
m - milli and
u - micro. This enables you to more easily tip small amounts. As an example, the following commands will tip the same amount to Joe:
!tip @joe 0.001 LTC
!tip @joe 1 mLTC
!tip @joe 1000 uLTC
Stability and security
Tip-bot is hosted on a dedicated server secured with a random-character password and Two Factor Authentication. This ensures high uptime and excellent safety for the funds deposited with Tip-bot.
Certain features have been implemented to minimize the risk of using Tip-bot.
- Thorough event logging
- Secure command parsing
- Command throttling
- Spam attack banning
- Direct error reports to the developers
- SQL input sanitization
Tip-bot has been thoroughly tested, and is so far working perfectly. Anyone can withdraw their crypto at any time with the command
!tip withdraw <amount> <coin> <address>. Before the withdrawal is executed, you are presented with an overview of the withdrawal information for you to accept.
Supported coins and features
Tip-bot currently only supports Litecoin. More coins will be added in the future.
Tip-bot is also able to maintain a "phone book" of cryptocurrency addresses of each user. Anyone can register addresses to their user with the command
!tip setaddress <coin> <address>, for example
!tip setaddress LTC o3rlnlk34j3lkj. Other users can see your list of registered addresses with
There is a 0.5% fee on all tips, in order to cover some of the server cost. The fee will be reduced when Tip-bot becomes more widely used.
