Bitcoin Tipping Suggestion

It would be really neat if S4GRU.COM got a tip button that could support these efforts.

 

 
 
People could donate 10 cents or 20 cents here or there and have it pool into the gift account.
 
Like a post Robert or AJ made?  Tip them!  Great way for micropayments to add up and make a difference on this site.
 
22,000 members - 10 cents each could do a lot of good!

That would be a good idea, but it seems a bit of a headache for Robert, as I remember he mentioned in the past that donations less than 5 bucks are merely a headache, they are appreciated but they are more of a pain than anything.  Not his exact words, just what I remember.  Also of those 22000 members how many are actually active on the site?

 

You are right though 10 cents here and 10 cents there does make a difference.

I would imagine that paypal fees and tracking of such low amounts are uneconomic.

 

However, with tipping, there are no fees and it would all go into one pool - eliminating the hassle of tracking.

Until the world of Bitcoin settles down, has very little risk, and goes a little more mainstream, we will not be able to dedicate resources or accept the risk associated with Bitcoin.

Just as an FYI, Microsoft is now accepting bitcoin:

 

 

 
 
 
 
 
The number of merchants accepting bitcoin now is very robust - I think that speaks to how mainstream this now is.
 
I still would love the ability to "tip" great posts.
