Using XRP Tip Bot

XRP Tip Bot is an application that can be used to send small amounts of XRP (5 max) as a tip to friends, family or your content creator of choice. The recently released Patron feature can be used to setup a recurring XRP payment to an individual. Patron creates a use case for XRP Tip Bot that functions like a digital asset alternative to a service like Patreon.

Tipping in XRP is a great way to show someone your appreciation for something they have done or content they have created. XRP Tip Bot was created by a software developer based out of The Netherlands named Wietse Wind. XRP Tip Bot works across four social media platforms: Twitter, Reddit, Discord and Coil. A paper account can also be used for those who do not wish to use a social media account. XRP Tip Bot users receive a QR code that allows anyone to easily send them tips in real life using the XRP Tip Bot smartphone app (available on Google Play and Apple Store).
