All About BTC, LTC, ETH mining as well as other alternative crypto currencies
The Bitcoin payment service provider Coinbase has just announced their plans to stop their Coinbase Tip service that allows users to easily send Bitcoin tips to other people, to support projects or causes and so on. The Coinbase Tip service will be available by the end of March and meanwhile Coinbase suggests that users of the service migrate to the alternative ChangeTip. According to the service there are about 10 thousand users of Coinbase Tip, though they probably expected that the tipping functionality will attract much more users than what is has in the bit less than 3 months timeframe that it has existed and that is the reason they are shutting it down. Interestingly enough ChangeTip actually relies on Coinbase APIs for their tipping service, so no wonder they are the recommended alternative, not to mention that ChangeTip is apparently doing much better than Coinbase Tip.
Coinbase tipping functionality has been available for a bit already and now there is a plugin that allows you to easily integrate the tip button on your WordPress blog. The Coinbase Tip plugin does require you to have an account in Coinbase to receive One-click tips that by default are set to 300 bits or currently around ~11 cents. The WordPress plugin allows you to quickly and easily integrate the tip button, but you can create it and copy the code manually from Conbase’s website and integrate it to just about any website easily. If you want to send a tip to a user you can do so by using either your Coinbase wallet or by directly sending coins to a BTC address from another wallet.
