Everyone likes tips, right? They’re even better when it’s for stuff you do already. There are only a few Lightning Network use cases out there in beta form for testing. One of these is Tippin.me, a site and browser extension that allows you to microtip anyone with a Twitter account once you secure a Lightning wallet and load it with some BTC.
Tippin.me first came on my radar on February 20, when Jack Dorsey, the founder and CEO of Twitter, announced to the world that he’d set up the virtual tip jar and had already seen the “satoshis”, or Tippin.me’s currency, roll in. Sergio Abril, who created Tippin.me, told Bitcoin Magazine that the day Jack sent out that tweet, he saw 35,000 people come to the site.
