I'm still new to Reddit, but I see that our Bitshares moderator is Xeroc: http://www.reddit.com/r/BitShares

In order to increase user adoption of Bitshares, all in favor of setting up an automated weekly tipping bot, express your vote in the poll above. Has anyone already setup a bot like this before or knows someone that can do it?

In the dogecoin reddit, there is a bot that automatically tips you dogecoin for any post that makes it to the front page of /r/dogecoin.


Of course, the bitshares reddit isnt big yet, and every post goes right to the front page right now, so perhaps our tipbot should automatically give BTS (or bitUSD or bitGLD) to threads which get at least X upvotes, or something like that.

Me and Rune were talking about something like this yesterday. You could even interface with Reddits API and have a faucet website set up that allows any Redditor to login with their reddit credentials and give 5 BitUSD per 1000 comment karma. That way you prevent abuse (can't game karma easily) and are getting the attention of the most vocal users on the most strategically important tech social media platform.

Why not create a bitUSD tipping bot which would work exactly the same way as current bitcoin tipping bot on all of reddit?

No point in tipping people who are already readers of the bitshares subreddit; they've already found bitshares - better to get people who don't know about it, talking about it.

I like it - perhaps there's a way we can incorporate into changetip? Get them to accept BitUSD as tips?

That is the best idea yet - we should be reaching out to changetip.

The word I got back from ChangeTip was they were focusing on Bitcoin.  With the 3.5 million dollar infusion they recently received, makes sense.

That is the best idea yet - we should be reaching out to Changetip.

https://github.com/vindimy/altcointip/blob/43a42550d2a7c43817c938e61cba42324d05a059/src/ctb/ctb_coin.py

You can make a python script that accepts the bitcoind style rpc requests and converts them to Bitshares RPC requests and vice-versa for the response that would probably be the easiest method adding Bitshares to Altcointip.

The less hacky way to do this would be to add support for different kind of daemons and then add the Bitshares daemon.

For each asset you can just add an entry to https://github.com/vindimy/altcointip/blob/43a42550d2a7c43817c938e61cba42324d05a059/src/conf-sample/coins.yml and run another RPC server on another port.

Subaccounts can be used for balances, so send your BTSX to bitsharestipbot.mauritso to add BTSX to your Reddit account.
