Overview

The BitcoinTip bot is a Freenode IRC bot designed to facilitate micro-payments of Bitcoin between IRC users. The receiving user does not need to have a Bitcoin address or an account with the BitcoinTip Bot in order to receive payments. It was inspired by NerfighterSean's BitcoinTip Reddit Bot.

Ideas

In order to overcome the authentication issues involved with IRC nicks, the bot will initially only send payments to nicks registered with the NickServ. Messages will be sent using the MemoServ system so that only the user that registered the nick is able to retrieve payments. More ideas on the security of the system need to be investigated in order to prevent abuse of the system by users trying to claim others' tips or sending tips from others' accounts.
