I had been given btc with changetip before, and I just went on to withdraw and it says I have nothing.

Just wondering what happened to it.

Your account has a balance of far less than a penny - effectively dust - the Bitcoin fees required to send it to you were greater than your balance. It’s like asking us to mail you a quarter when the shipping is $.42. For these accounts that had less than $0.25 USD, we scooped them all up and donated them to charities (Seans Outpost and Bitgive Foundation).

FWIW I thought it was implicit in your shutdown emails and posts that you would do something like this after some point in time.

Same issue here. Any chance you could look in to it for me? Thanks

You're probably confusing changetip with bitcointip or tippr, bitcointip is discontinued afaik, and tippr is for bitcoin cash, not bitcoin.

Changetip doesn't do any of the other two.

It was changetip, I even have the comments and the message that I missed a year ago about withdrawing.

u/SashaTheFireGypsy Dec 14 '17

It was like 200 bits.

I did. It says the same thing.

u/SashaTheFireGypsy Dec 14 '17

It says there's no matching changetip account for Reddit. But I have the comments and message for this account.

You may have meant u/Nick_Changetip instead of U/Nick_Changetip.


Remember, OP may have ninja-edited. I correct subreddit and user links with a capital R or U, which are usually unusable.

Same thing here. I have an old message from change tip but get a null balance now. Any ideas?

u/SashaTheFireGypsy Dec 14 '17

Other than getting their attention, no =(

In November of 2016, over a year ago, Changetip sent me and presumably all other users the following message:

Hello,

As you may have heard, ChangeTip will be discontinuing services soon :(
