We recently started using a bitcoin cash tipping bot in the Praxis Slack. It's small fun, but it allows you to see how amazing being able to send small amounts of money to each other is. Having the small-scale experience of being able to send money quickly and easily is opening my eyes to ways tipping can make your day better.
As I was wrapping up work today someone on the team sent a tip to someone else. I left the cafe I was working at, walked out to the street, and waited to cross a street as car after car raced through the pedestrian crossing.
Eventually, one driver decided to stop. I gave him a wave to show my appreciation, but immediately I thought about how much better it would be if I could send him money.
Imagine having a public wallet on your phone shared with people in your area through Bluetooth. At any time you could see people around you who have a wallet enabled. You can attach a picture of yourself and your car to it. When someone random helps you out or does something nice, you can quickly find them and send them some money.
A car stops so you can cross, send them a quarter. On a rough day, a stranger smiles and says hello, send them 50 cents for making your day brighter. Someone looks down in the dumps, send them a dollar.
There are so many situations in our day to day lives where we could use small payments to show appreciation and make our communities better. In some of those situations, you could give someone physical fiat money. But handing someone a dime of fiat for being nice is insulting, sending them 5000 Satoshi of BCH is fun and enriching.
Having sound money that is easy to move will completely reshape the way we think about payments. 50 years from now people will look back and wonder how society ever function without the ease of payments that cryptocurrency allows
