ChangeTip Now Allows Facebook Friends to Tip in Bitcoin
Bitcoin microtransactions startup ChangeTip, which allows people to send bitcoin tips over social media, has now added Facebook to its list of supported platforms.
With the move, ChangeTip adds to its existing list of popular social media services, which include Twitter and Reddit.
However, the team framed the integration of Facebook as a notable step forward. By leveraging the world’s largest social network, the San Francisco-based company hopes to encourage more consumers to use bitcoin.
Dan Held, its newly appointed vice president for product, told CoinDesk:
“With over 1 billion users, enabling this on Facebook opens up a unique way to bring new people into bitcoin.”
