2. Post content on Tipestry to receive tips and win periodic Best of Contests. Few social sites feature any kind of tipping, and when they do- it's usually either through fiat, which means users have to link a bank or credit card and give up their privacy, or, if it's through cryptocurrency, it's normally only though that platform's own obscure coin. Tipestry, on the other hand, features built-in tipping with Bitcoin, Ether, ERC-20 tokens, Dogecoin, and in the future many more coins and tokens.
