How to send a tip?
STEP 1 - Login into XRP Tip Bot
You will need first to login in into your XRP Tip Bot account using your Twitter username (no registration required). Go to this page
STEP 2 - Deposit some XRP
You will need to deposit XRP to your XRP Tip Bot account first. All you need is a positive balance of XRP and you can begin tipping. You can can add XRP to your balance in different ways:
- XRP deposit: deposit XRP from an exchange or your wallet
- ILP: deposit to your ILP payment pointer
- Receive XRP tip on Twitter
Other deposit options include:
- Deposit and exchange at Bitrue
- Deposit using Card2XRP.com
STEP 3 - Start tipping
When you find a post that you like simply reply to that post (user). Use this format to send a tip: +<amount> #xrptip e.g. type @XRPTrump +0.25 #xrptip to send 0.123456 XRP to the user you reply to (Twitter / Discord*).
If your tweet is not a reply, the tip goes to the twitter user first mentioned in your tweet except if that's you yourself or @xrptipbot. Also note that retweets don’t trigger tips.
Here is an example:
What if you want to send multiple tips all at once? This would be the syntax then:
[User Mention] [+amount] [#xrptip mention] e.g.:
@XRPTrump +0.25 #xrptip
@RobertLe88 +1.5 #xrptip
This is a very cool way to spread the love ❤ to multiple Twitter users in one tweet!
TIPS AND NOTES:
1) When you want to send a tip to a different user (not the one you are replaying to) use this syntax:
“Hello user +amount#xrptip” i.e. Hello @stedas +0.5 #xrptip
In this case "hello"’ separates the reply chain and the TipBot syntax. So, the reply needs to start with text, otherwise it’s parsed as a reply and a tip goes to the person you replied to.
2) Don't add any text between the user mention and the amount, for example:
Not good: @TwitterUsername hey it's me +amount #xrptip
Good: @TwitterUsername +amount #xrptip
TIPPING ON REDDIT:
When you find a post on Reddit that you like simply reply with a comment. Use this format to send a tip: +<amount> /u/xrptipbot, eg. +1.25 /u/xrptipbot (reddit). The tipping amount limit is the same as for the Twitter users: 5 XRP per tip.
