Hey there, /r/Triangle. I’ve got some free bits for anyone who’s never tried bitcoin and would like to see what all the fuss is about

The title sums it up pretty well. The /r/Bitcoin community has been getting pretty generous with the tips, and I've got a few thousand stacked up in my ChangeTip wallet. Don't get too excited, a few thousand bits is still a very small fraction of a whole bitcoin (one "bit" is actually a microbitcoin, or 0.000001 btc, meaning a hundred 'bits' is currently worth about three and a half cents). But this denomination is perfect for online tipping and micropayments (a friend of mine is about to launch a video site that has a micropayment pay wall, the vast majority of which goes to the content creator, rather than Google).

So yeah. Who wants to experiment with a couple/few hundred bits and the ChangeTip wallet? What's ChangeTip? A online wallet app that allows you to tip other people with bitcoin on a variety of social media platforms like reddit, twitter, facebook, etc. All ChangeTip transactions take place off of the blockchain, so there is no transaction fee until you withdraw from the ChangeTip wallet.

Last but not least, not so shameless plug for http://www.meetup.com/Triangle-Bitcoin-Meetup/ which meets next Nov 17th in the middle of Nash Square, next to the Fallen Fire Fighters Memorial

I encourage my bitcoin loving Triangle brethren to join me in spreading the digital love.
