An open-source, non-custodial, on-chain tipping service.
Brought to you by the /r/Monero community.
See tips in action here.
How to use
>>> DO NOT store more Monero than you’re willing to lose «<
Creating a Wallet, Checking your Balance & Public Address
/u/MoneroTipsBot <amount> XMR will tip whoever you replied to the amount! For example, commenting
/u/MoneroTipsBot 0.25 XMR. Thanks for the tutorial!! will send whoever you’ve just replied to 0.25 XMR from your wallet.
To withdraw any part of your balance, PM /u/MoneroTipsBot with the subject as
Withdraw <amount> XMR and the message as just your address. For example, messaging /u/MoneroTipsBot
Withdraw 0.75 XMR with the message content
44AFFq5kSiGBoZ4NMDwYtN18obc8AemS33DBLWs3H7otXft3XjrpDtQGv7SqSsaBYBb98uNbr2VBBEt7f2wfn3RVGQBEP3A will withdraw 0.75 Monero to that address.
(Warning: withdrawals cannot be reversed once they are done!)
To make an anonymous tip to any Reddit use, PM /u/MoneroTipsBot with the subject as
Anonymous tip USER <amount> XMR, with any message you want to deliver alongside. For example, messaging /u/MoneroTipsBot
Anonymous tip fluffyponyza 5 XMR with an empty body will tip /u/fluffyponyza 5 Monero, without any hint of who sent it!
Extracting your private key
Warning: If you share your private key with anyone, you may lose your funds.
If you’re sure you understand what your private key can do, and how to use it, PM /u/MoneroTipsBot with the subject
My private info. The bot will reply displaying your public address, total balance, and your private key (mnemonic) which you can use to export funds/import into another wallet.
Donating to the CCS
Monero uses community crowdfunding to fundraise developers. You can donate directly to it from here!

Is this real Monero!?!?!?
Yup! Don’t lose it!
Someone sent me a tip! How can I withdraw it for money?
This depends on few factors, such as what country you’re from and how much you’ve received. For large amounts, you can use any Exchange that supports Monero, or for smaller amounts, it may be easier to spend at Merchants & Services that accept Monero instead.
Why is all my Monero unconfirmed? I want to send more tips!
Monero works by sending your Monero to a destination, then all the return “change” back to yourself. This means if you only ever received Monero from 1 source, you can only make 1 transaction at a time.
The easiest and quickest way to fix this problem is to wait a bit, then tip yourself your full balance. This will split your balance into 6 inputs, which should be enough to get going again!
How much Monero is too much?
Consider any Monero you put on the tipper service spent. While you can always retrieve it (if you wrote down your private key), the purpose of the service is to tip others; so you should not put anything on it that you are not comfortable with completely losing.
Do you own a copy of my private key?
Yes!! So don’t store too much. While it is stored encrypted on the service, until someone can figure out how I can circumvent this I’ll have access to your keys and funds. So don’t store more than you’re willing to lose, and back up your private key in case the service ever goes down!
Is it open source?
Absolutely! The code is free to learn from, copy or redistribute and is available on Github here.
How can I verify transactions are occurring on-chain?
After a successful tip, you can take the tx key and input it to a Monero block explorer, such as MoneroBlocks. Since Monero is private, the amount and addresses are hidden, but you can still verify the transaction took place, and verify further details by exporting your private key and looking it up in a local wallet.

Report a bug
- If you’re on the redesigned Reddit, copying a previous post’s tip and pasting it as your own will actually paste
[/u/Monerotipsbot](https://www.reddit.com/user/monerotipsbot), rather than
/u/Monerotipsbot, causing it not to be summoned
If you found a bug not on this list, either message me here or sent me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org!
1) Don’t break real world laws
2) Back up your private seed
3) Don’t store more than you’re willing to lose
By using the tipping service you agree to not break sitewide rules or break real world laws. You are responsible for ensuring the safety and retrieval of your own funds. The service may always go down, so you are likewise responsible for backing up your private seed and I am not responsible for lost funds because of failure to do so. By having Monero on this service, you agree to not hunt me down for it. It’s yours, you’re responsible for it. The source code is published on Github here, so if you spot a potential security flaw please let me know ASAP either through a Reddit PM to /u/OsrsNeedsF2P, or an email to email@example.com.
Stay safe and happy tipping!
