I recently sent an email to SE Team, offering the idea to allow "tips" on Stack Exchange sites. They advised me to post it here, since SE is maintained and build by the community.
Below is an email text, that sent to SE Team, and I would like to hear what the great Stack Exchange community is thinking about allowing Dogecoin "tips" on SE sites:
Hello SE Team,
It's a first time I'm writing to this email, and the first thing that I want, is to thank you for a great service and site you're providing! You have a great community sites, that helps me each day multiple times and actually, I don't know what would I do, if Stack Overflow would not exists. And I'm sure I am not alone with my feelings. Again, great work and thank you!
Now for a business :) I'm sure geniuses like you, heard about Bitcoin like cryptocurrencies, and Dogecoin especially (http://dogecoin.com/). In case of not, Dogecoin is an alternative to Bitcoin currency that grows very fast and has a huge community. Dogecoin exists less then two months, but community counts almost 70k members on reddit (http://www.reddit.com/r/dogecoin/).
What I think, it would be a great thing, if it would be possible to make Dogecoin "tips" on Stack Exchange sites. Not just up-voting a good answers, but send some "tip" to person who helps to solve the problems. I don't think it's something hard to implement, since there already exists the tipping bot that works on Reddit, Twitter, Youtube and more.
In my opinion, such service can be as useful for Dogecoin as for Stack Overflow. As a beta, it could be used on http://bitcoin.stackexchange.com/ and if it proves yourself, it can move further for other SE sites.
Thank you, hope you will like it and we will see Dogecoin on Stack Exchange soon! Regards, Alex Danilov
Edit: After receiving some comments, I think it important to state that Dogecoin is not a "real currency" and do not want to be. It is a "virtual tipping value". As huge Dogecoin community states: 1 Dodge = 1 Doge :)
