April Fool's!

But the fact that they mentioned microtransaction is suggestive. They must be noticing how Bitcointip is a zillion times cooler than reddit gold. I mean, to give someone reddit gold when you could've just as easily given them $3 is almost sadistic!

By microtransactions, I think they are talking about buying items like in TF2, not as in users sending money between each other.

Don't use BIPS!

Reddit could be the next Ebay. They already have a pretty strong reputation system with many multi-year users. They have long been looking for a way to monetize.
