CoinAwesome: Using NodeBB for a decentralized content aggregator - Looking for a dev partner

  • @remcokatz Great, you added the awesome button on your site! Only that you need to put your address like it is inside the wallet into the HTML... otherwise I can not tip it... here is the URL:

    @frissdiegurke thank you a lot for your detailed feedback!

    • I am not sure why the email got send out twice. Must be something with NodeBB. Will keep an eye on it and look whether this happens more often.
    • true, will try it out how it looks. I thought of 'success' - you made it to the site 😄
    • also true. In Bitcoinland everybody knows what an address is (hash of a pubkey). ID is probably more understandable... but would confuse Bitcoin users... will think about it.
      • It is called Address because you can send coins to it, like emails to email-addresses.
      • But you can also use your key to sign messages from third party servers and proof your identity to them
      • generally such IDs are not made for humans. Better would be to have a naming system (like namecoin has) but would take about 2 weeks of dev work.
      • So often you use your email-address as an ID... both concepts are kind of melting together.
        And as for the other points about the UI improvements I actually agree with most of them.

    There will be also other giveaways of course. I picked FB as the first because it has the largest user base, by far. Next is twittter, reddit... any ideas what would be good to have too?

  • GNU/Linux Admin

    Nice to see this! Best of luck @v4, 🙂

    NodeBB has a fairly strong presence in the altcoin community. Looking forward to more big names in the future!

  • Plugin & Theme Dev

    Two more points 😉

    • the external link "my tipping history" within the chrome-plugin links to (in my case).
      1. There is no such user, am I supposed to create this?
      2. Since the awesome-ID seems to be case-sensitive, the nodebb-username seems not to be, there shouldn't be such an association. but this would get solved by the naming system you mentioned 😉

    Another giveaway idea I'd like to see would be Github with by-commit activity-limitations, but that depends on the actual sense of the giveaways (some prize-like reward or some FCFS donation giveaway).

    EDIT: wait, where is my second point? Now I need to remember what it's been O_O

  • @julian thank you!


    1. Your user account on gets created as soon as you make your first tip or get tipped onto your address/ID. Not just a simple transaction. It needs to be a tip with data inside the transactin (URL at least). You are right that the link/button should not be visible until then...
    2. The usernames are actually with case but the slug (URL) is lower-case for some reason. Maybe @julian knows why? Would nodeBB break somewhere if I make it case-sensitive too?

    The sense of the giveaways is to encourage adoption. I like Github very much but it has not many users compared to other social media.

  • @v4 it's not clear what to do with the embed code now.

    I've first posted this:

    <iframe src=""ATKnonEi7CkNuv1vpZX4UnkuccrfehtREJ" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" allowtransparency="true" title="CoinAwesome Button" style="position: absolute; z-index: 1029; border: 0px; height: 210px; width: 330px; left: 0px; background-color: transparent;"></iframe>

    Now you are talking about putting the website address in there?

    I'm not certain what to do now 🙂

  • @remcokatz Sorry for confusion.

    Have a look at

    Just copy and paste following (your address already included):
    <span style="position: relative; top:11px; left:22px;"><iframe src="" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" allowtransparency="true" title="CoinAwesome Button" style="position: absolute; z-index: 1029; border: 0px; height: 210px; width: 330px; left: 0px; background-color: transparent;"></iframe></span>

    This is how it has to be. No quotes around the address. Just around the src value. The address is part of the src value. The AWE address. Not talking about the URL.

    You might need to adjust the styling a bit to fit your needs.

  • @v4 So if I'm correct i should replace for the url of my own website?

    I did put a " in behind the addr part since it seemed to me that it was missing. I will remove it. Perhaps you could create an "iframe generator" script on the coinawesome site to make sure that people understand what to adjust etc.?

    Let me know if my first question is correct! Then i'll quickly fix it and I can get this puppy on the road :).

  • Plugin & Theme Dev

    @remcokatz you have an " to many as it seems. remove that one in front of your AWE-Address, it's closing the src-attribute

  • Admin

    I have to say, good job on your take on lav, looks very awesome. Good luck!

    EDIT: when do we see a tip plugin for nodebb? 😛

  • Hi guys,

    now we have got the Bitcoin version:

    Read the introductory blog post:

    @psychobunny A plugin is not needed with WeTipCoins or CoinAwesome by design. It works with every URL, e.g. the user profile URL. Which field do you suggest for the user to embed his coin address?

  • Admin

    Maybe a plugin to add the field for coin address? I've seen people add them to their sigs as well, but depends on the theme (ie. Persona doesn't utilize sigs but we will plan on making them kind of like a status update in future)

    Cool work BTW 🙂
