ChangeTip

ChangeTip was a micropayment platform built by ChangeCoin, Inc., an American corporation based in San Francisco, California, which specialized in online micropayments using the digital currency bitcoin.

Founded in 2013, ChangeTip enabled users of the digital currency to send micropayments across various social media websites, such as Twitter, YouTube, Reddit, and Facebook, as well as e-mail and text messaging. These micropayments, referred to as ‘tips’, were primarily used to express appreciation for quality content.

As of January 31, 2015, the average micropayment using the ChangeTip platform was a little over $1, with over $250,000 having been tipped since its inception. In 2016, ChangeCoin, Inc. was acquired by Airbnb, leading to the shutdown of tipping services in November 2016.
