Part 5: The ExO Economy Tipbot
This Post is Part of a Multi-Part Series, The ExO Economy Primer. This is the 5th installment.
Not long ago, the ExO Economy DevOps team launched the ExO Economy Tipbot.
@Tipbot can be leveraged to send EXOS to any member of the ExO Economy that is also a member of the Discord community.
From and Exponential Organizations perspective, one might consider the ExO Economy Discord server as an Interface to a global crowd to and from our OpenExO Community.
One of the exciting features of the Tipbot is that is a type of simple agent to assist people in tipping people in EXOS in a peer to peer public way. It's called @tipbot. Tipbot lives in a particular channel called #tipping on the Discord server.
Join the Discord Server to Meet @Tipbot and tip your friends at https://discord.gg/eCNMCMt
You can speak directly with @tipbot with to coordinate your EXOS balance on the server. You can send tips to one or many people at the same time. You can deposit and withdraw EXOS with @tipbot to your Discord user and more. @Tipbot is capable of facilitating trivia questions for EXOS.
Tipping with @Tipbot is fun and as a way to say thanks if you want, in EXOS, to fellow community members.
Some other fun facts about @Tipbot you might not realize are that:
Technically, it's an EXOS wallet. You can send/receive EXOS with @tipbot.
Interestingly, peer to peer transactions inside Discord is OFF chain. It's not until you withdraw the EXOS to a wallet like the Cloud or Staking wallets that the transactions commit to the EXOS blockchain.
If you have an ExO Economy Discord account, you can receive tips even if you haven't deposited EXOS or generated an address. This feature built into the system.
Over time, we expect we can expand beyond Discord for tipping if desired. But, today, it's Discord #tipping channel only.
The Tipbot is self, in the spirit of OpenExO is Open Source. You can see the source on our Github.
And a fun thought, we are considering running a fun "Trivia Event" on Discord just for fun. Would that be interesting to you? If so, let us know!
