A new program to set up Lightning Network micropayments, tippin.me, has recently entered beta testing.
The developer for this project described some of its details on a Reddit thread to the r/Bitcoin subreddit. The dev says that it “allows you to receive tips (micro-payments) over the Lightning Network, anytime, anywhere, without needing a LN node,” by means of “a simple web custodial wallet.”
Upon signup, tippin.me “gives you a personal tippin’ link to be shared that contains a fresh QR Invoice with an undefined amount to be paid. If anyone sends you money to that QR Invoice, this amount will appear in your tippin.me dashboard.” The overall plan is for people to “share it to receive tips across webs, blogs, patreons, forums, etc. using Lightning Network.”
