Bitcoin Cash (BCH) developers have recently launched a new application for tipping registered users of the Github website.
The popular Github service has become the home to many developers’ codes throughout the years, enabling global collaboration that has spawned many projects. This time, the web-based software development platform is getting a boost from the newly-launched Gitcash.io—a service for rewarding developers for their contributions to open source projects.

In a statement on Yours.org, on its website, the team behind GitCash.io described the app as an “on-chain Bitcoin Cash tipping platform for Github, allowing users to directly support the developers who are writing the open source code that powers our planet.”
The tipping platform, according to its programmers, supports custom user profiles, complete tipping histories, and full-featured HD wallets capable of generating and sweeping custom password protected paper wallets. GitCash also accepts zero-confirmations, enabling “faster than lightning” transactions.
To tip Github users inside an issue or pull request, simply call the GitCash tip bot with “@GitCash send .005 bch to @ConsensusBot”. The GitCash app will respond with instructions on how the user can claim their tip. More detailed information on using GitCash can be found here.
The app, supported solely by donations, is completely free to use. Built on the BitBox platform, GitCash.io has secured backing from the not-for-profit Bitcoin Cash Fund, which is contributing initial funding for the first two months post-launch. The team behind GitCash.io has also partnered with another on-chain tipping platform—ChainTip—whose Github bounties will be shown on the GitCash website.
The Gitcash team said the platform was built by “a small team of passionate developers who believe that Bitcoin Cash is not only the future of money, but a powerful tool capable of bettering the world.”
“We built Gitcash on Bitcoin Cash because it is truly censorship resistant and sound money that has the potential to benefit every person in the world equally, including those living on less than two dollars per day,” the dev team said.
Note: Tokens on the Bitcoin Core (segwit) Chain are Referred to as BTC coins. Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is today the only Bitcoin implementation that follows Satoshi Nakamoto’s original whitepaper for Peer to Peer Electronic Cash. Bitcoin BCH is the only major public blockchain that maintains the original vision for Bitcoin as fast, frictionless, electronic cash.
