@hek, I'm really likeing the implementation outlined in your second post.
It would be super awsome if NodeBB would have a module that would allow to tip users (something like on reddit) or just award them for the posts.
The way I see it:
- using Kapitalize npm module - can connect to almost any cryptocurrency daemon through RPC connection
- upon registration every user would be given custom-generated bitcoin/altcoin address (easy with Kapitalize)
- in the user page user's bitcoin address would be shown with current balance and withdrawal possibility
- in every post an icon to tip - when clicked it would show a dialog to get the amount of the tip
And more advanced features:
- it would notify user of tip received
- it would show from what user the tip is from (based on bitcoin address?)
It's just my dream I hope you see the potential in this...
I'll try to make it myself, but I'm a poor nodejs programmer.
This would be a fantastic plugin! I'm sure there are some coders over at coinunity, but I don't think any of them speak English
Definitely give them a shot -- @YangWao is the admin there, and he's usually on IRC (#nodebb on FreeNode).
Just wondering if you know if this plugin progressed?
Investigating the same idea
@Redd Don't believe it did, but you're welcome to create it.
cool, didnt want to create where there was no need..
i am just coming up to speed on nodebb and its architecture
There's a Ripple tip plugin that I helped work on: https://bitbucket.org/jmimms/nodebb-plugin-ripple/
I will check that one out to see what the goal was
I see it is quite active currently
@Redd not really, but the general idea for a tipping system using cryptocurrency is in there.
So i have a basic framework for the plugin working after the weekend
Thanks for inputs
@Redd i'm also interested in that kind of plugin, have you made a github repo for it ?
I could help too
I havent made anything public yet
I have a few people lined up to give my beta a dry run, once i am ok with the state and given my code a spring clean, i will post my official release
I have focused on setting this up for a coin community i am active with, but intend to extend this through to all crypto that support the Bitcoin BIP21
@Redd reddcoin ? ^^
@Redd you're using a nodebb forum, that's cool
Cross posted from plugin request changetip
FYI, you may be interested to know I have been working on a decentralized tipping platform for crypto-currency
No 3rd party wallets.
Users have control of their coins.
Notification of incoming tips
History of incoming tips
Just about to roll this out to a live forum for hot testing
I havent yet released to public as i want some internal peer review
Once complete, should see this soonish.
@Redd that's great !
Also, it introduces me to ReddCoin, it's a much better social coin project than NeuCoin
Thanks, hope to see you over on the forum also.
Any feedback you have is welcome
