Starting out as a simple tool on social sharing website Reddit.com, ‘BitcoinTip’ was a bot that allowed Redditors to easily send and received tips denominated in bitcoin from fellow users.
With visions of monetization and expansion, BitcoinTip has morphed into ChangeTip as of April of this year, which has since seen no shortage of backlash from the community (mostly due to introduced fees).
But ChangeTip has slowly been expanding, introducing their services to other platforms like GitHub and StockTwits.
And today, the service/company has announced their expanding the ChangeTip services to additional social media platforms, of which include Google Plus, YouTube, and Tumblr.
The idea is to get more social bugs to send each other small “tips” in amounts like $0.25 and $0.75, but in bitcoin. These so-called tips are designed as a means of support for whomever is being tipped. And with enough tippers sending you money, it can all add up.
“We believe people are basically good and we let them show their appreciation directly in everyday social media interactions,” says Nick Sullivan, ChangeTip’s head honcho. “That’s why we call ChangeTip a ‘love button’ for the Internet.”

Just don’t forget about that 1 percent fee to withdraw from your ChangeTip wallet.

I’d be curious to read your reviews of the service, since I’ve never personally tried it. I’m only familiar with using BitcoinTip.
