Intro & General Description of HiveTips
What Is HiveTips?
The name says it all = Tipping with HIVE.
However, not only on UI's that are integrating Hive, but instead, all over the internet!
Is the idea of making HIVE mainstream possible?
HiveTips has proven that it is possible!
Hive is ALIVE!
What The Crypto Media Thinks & Says about Tipping with Crypto:
Rather than us say anything about this, here it is, direct from the sources.
There have been numerous articles written about the potential of tipping:
"The ‘tip’ of the iceberg”
”While cryptocurrency still looks for a place to achieve scale and mainstream adoption tipping could be the one area that it can take a foothold. It has been neglected by centralised services and is by no means a monopoly at this point.”
”I think that the growing need for independent, unbiased content and the tipping trend can be combined with cryptocurrency and could be the springboard the sector never wanted but needs to become a viable mainstream trading medium."
Will digital tipping become cryptocurrencies first real-world use case?
"If micropayments do catch on, it will probably develop from online tipping. Some of that already exists, but it’s sparse and uncoordinated."
The Tipping Point of Bitcoin Micropayments
Online tipping statistics are now being accumulated and followed, as the numbers and frequencies of tips rise:
Note: There are many more from where those three articles came from, but these should suffice in making the point.
HiveTips makes everything these articles talk about = REALITY!
The goals do not stop there, now that we have HiveTips working on the above listed platforms, the plan is to expand it all over the internet. On gaming sites & platforms, other social networks in fact, anywhere where people hang out and contribute with their content. Which potentially is unlimited as the diversity of offers on the internet keeps growing daily.
The sky is the limit.
