Check it out: http://www.reddit.com/r/test/comments/11iby2/bitcointip_tip_redditors_with_bitcoin/

Disclaimer: The tipping bot is an independent project by bitcointalk.org user SuperP (NerdfighterSean on reddit). It is not officially endorsed by reddit.com. Reddit.com is a mostly open scource platform.


-edit- Update from the developer:

UPDATE on the bot:

I'm in the process of rewriting the bot in python to take advantage of the Python Reddit API Wrapper (praw) and make retrieving user comments and messages faster.  Parts of the code need updated now that a bitcoind server is being used instead of the blockchain.info API.  I'm new to Github and I'm not well versed in python, so please bear with me.  Every line there should be treated as pseudocode for now since it's a mess between PHP -> Python.  If you would like to help out, here it is on Github: https://github.com/NerdfighterSean/bitcointip

Some people suggested a subreddit specifically for the bot, so I've made that if you want to post stuff there: http://www.reddit.com/r/bitcointip

This is actually a very very cool idea. Is this
  • a reddit product?
  • a user bot with the blessing of reddit?
  • an independent bot like anybody could write a bot?

Who are the people behind this bot? What is their measure in case reddit cancels this? Whom can I slap if the hot wallet password "accidentally" gets too accessible?

Edit: This should just as well work on twitter!?! and if done by the same people, transactions between twitter and reddit could be free.

Edit: So for $5 I may get my money back in case the service is terminated?
With my money in my own priv key the service makes a more reliable impression to the whereabouts of my money (no fractional reserve) but it's ultimately less secure (100% hot wallet) and costs fees to send between reddit users.

Conclusion: I am not at all convinced.

I still don't know what the hell a reddit is, but this looks like a good development.

Bitcoin combines money, the wrongest thing in the world, with software, the easiest thing in the world to get wrong.
Visit www.thevenusproject.com and www.theZeitgeistMovement.com.

Now we just need to have reddit integrate it into the site itself, so we can have a button that does this.

Yeah, it doesn't look like an official reddit.com project to me... however the topic here suggests it is. Maybe change that.

Any official statement from either reddit or btctip.com on the matter?

If that works out, thats exactly what I'm going to do.

Give 2BTC to tip 200 Paypal victims? I will have so much fun.

... Have to prepare some mocking messages I send with the tip, suggestions welcome.

All previous versions of currency will no longer be supported as of this update

Just redeemed my existing Reddit karma with the bot for a grand total of ฿0.00202948 Grin

Note that it looks like the bot can currently take a while to respond to PMs. It took 15 minutes for it to respond to a "HELP" message, for instance.

Haha lol Smiley
Maybe the ""bot"" is in early development and responses are done manually by some non-programmer to gauge interest in a real bot?
