People who are giving products and services for BTC "tipping" nowadays, is it truly worth for You?

I read that "tipping" does not work anymore because people prefer to download and then never tip even if they are nevertheless satisfied with the product. Also, I know that is why alot of people are selling their products for a hilariously low price because even selling for that price is said to be better than trusting in tips.

I have not saw any person who have tipped for any free product. If someone will get any tip for any of his free product and download then it maybe 1 out of thousands. Giving the product at a lowest price is better than giving for tip

I've tipped before, for very specific things on this forum, thing kind users did for me--like explanations via PM and so forth.  I've never tipped for posts or anything trivial.  Probably because I'm so friggin' tight with bitcoin my ass squeaks when I walk.  Bitcoin is just too valuable to give it away for nothing.

Isn't tipping what RDD and dogecoin are mainly used for?

I can say that I never tipped anyone for any free product. People just don't see reason to tip, if they can get something for free.
For example, there are thread with overview of signature campaigns. It's updated very often and people who are doing it really desserved to get tips. But only few people donated them.

If I had more money I would tip, but as I'm making profit from "tips" and things like that I can't retribute others and have profit at same time.

But I think it worth. I can't say for everyone, but I like to receive tips and I think many others like too. All extra earning is welcome and it's a signal you were helpful or agradable for someone. It has more a symbolic effect than practical.

Most products that come free are either FREEWARE or Open Source.
As I understand it, freeware is less used by developers as people prefer to have access to the Source Code in order to work out how the program functions and how to optimize it for their computers. (and lots of freeware services are rigged with some sort of virus or problem - such as adobe who download McAfee at the same time as their software installs).
If it is open source, that means multiple people have collaborated on producin the software (normally after people modify and release different versions of the code). Therefore, the software isn't made solely by the developer.

Tipping should be abolished in the online world as well as in the real world. People who serve, regardless if it's just online or in a real restaurant, expects to be given some money for their job. So why not just declare a fixed fee for their services. So that people who use the service know how much he has to really pay and the server does not expect a random tip. Not to mention, if the tip was really small (or no tip at all), they will be mad.

Well it depends on your satisfaction, there are people who are doing this, that even the product / service they got for free is satisfying they won't really mind even to say thanks and as well as tipping. But didn't you know that there is a new word that has been used for the replacement of 'tipping'? Many open source sites that are offering free services have their very own 'donate' button.

People are greedy by nature and the one who want to download stuffs for free whenever he/she can just want to save few dollars so there is no chance that he/she will tip anything to the content owner. I don't think even 0.01% of people who use free services/products will donate/tip to owner, so selling for very low price is better idea than hoping for tips/donations.

I think if you enjoy the product or services, tipping a small amount will not hurt you. In the contrary, I think you will be blessing for your contribution. The same think is true in the real world, if you see someone to play nice music on the street, give a quarter is not a big deal. I think the more you give, the more will receive you back.

From my point of view to be too much greedy is not a good thing.

Trusting tipping from crypto community is like trusting trump with your hot wife. And I say it is not worth it.

Tipping/Donating is not a based revenue for your project its just a "Help" so don't be confused, I even consider it like Charity if its not on providing support for valuable projects

Tipping is just a kind of small help as what Bitcoin_Boy said, I give a tipped to a person if he did something good like giving some legit tutorials that many people can benefits. And if you offer your products/service for free don't expect for a tip. Much better if you sell it even just small penny.

It is really worth in our real life but I doubt that it is still worth on the digital world. On the internet, people always use free/cheap products without appreciating the providers. Well, only escrow services can have good tips. I always tip them after finishing every trade

I would say that if you giving products for tip then don't expect for profit, people on the internet are acting like poor when it comes to pay something or atleast give an appreciation for what people have done for them
In real life it would be such a shame by not giving a tip to people who just helped them but in the internet they don't have the thing to be ashamed about

Tipping with bitcoins now a days is really a job done once in a blue moon because the value of bitcoin has raised up to $1000 again and i don't think someone would be tipping anyone for just a free service or anything with bitcoin, people may did this before when the price was not as high as it is right now.

The act of tipping with BTC is now dead. The service Change Tip even closed down because there were no people using it. BTC is simply too valuable to be given away easly to random people on the internet. But other coins like Doge are better suited for it, but even then Doge tipping is getting lower and lower every year.

I have Tipped a few users out of 2016 & into 2017 so far and sometimes randomly throughout the years I have been a Member of Bitcointalk, self satisfaction knowing you are spreading the BTCTC love makes it so much better when you do it, no matter if that person has loads of BTCitcoin or not.

I offer the Rewards, Tips, or what ever you want to call it for using your Brain with Quiz's that aren't Generic, it throws the cheats off their game and gives others that may specialize in the Subject/Genre a chance.

Well tipping is a good way to appreciate help of other people. They may be offering some 'free' service but it doesn't mean that you will take the advantage and will just simply say thank you from them. It is just a token of appreciation and it is a thing that makes those people who are not actually profiting from their service to encourage them to keep on helping other.

You are a rare breed in the forum. Most of us here are happy to hold on in what we have. Maybe its because we dont hold that much BTC in the first place. Maybe if I was a Bitcoin millionaire I would tip random people sometimes. But honestly speaking I think its a waste of BTC.
