    Whatever the bot says. Supports expandable variables (eg. %nick% for bot's nick). By default all config vars from rpc section are available.

    How does it work?

    Every nickname has it's own account in your wallet. When tipping or withdrawing, bot checks if user is registered and identified with NickServ. If so, he moves the money from one account to another, or when withdrawing, transfers coins to other wallet.

    How to run it?

    Before running the bot, you have to be running your coin daemon with JSON-RPC API enabled. To enable, add this to your coin daemon configuration file (eg. ~/.litecoin/litcoin.conf):

    rpcuser=<your username>
    rpcpassword=<your super secret password>
    rpcallowip=<your bot's ip address or just if hosted on the same machine>

    Start The Bot

    To run the bot simply use node bin/tipbot or npm start.

    IF you ger this error:

    npm WARN This failure might be due to the use of legacy binary "node"
    npm WARN For further explanations, please read


    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:chris-lea/node.js
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install python-software-properties python g++ make nodejs


    To change the ticker for your coin edit config/config.yml line 39 - 50 and add your own Cryptsy, AllCoin and BTC-e coin ticker link. Currently only supports Cryptsy, AllCoin and BTC-e. See config/config.yml line 33 - 50, 61 -75, 104 -108 and bin/tipbot.js 267 to 351 to add your own exchange json.
