The Tipping Point of Bitcoin Micropayments

http://www.coindesk.com/tipping-point-bitcoin-micropayments/

If micropayments do catch on, it will probably develop from online tipping. Some of that already exists, but it’s sparse and uncoordinated.
Formalized bitcoin tipping services have popped up here and there, but none has become substantial. The first popu­lar one, youTipIt, was launched by a few computer program­mers as a side project in 2010. But it shut down two years later when it ran out of money and started coming under scrutiny by Germany’s finance regulator.
