Squad Wealth + Quadratic Funding = Squadratic Crowdfunding
Tipsy improves upon the existing tipping mechanisms of BitClout via squadratic crowdfunding -
Tipsy encourages busking on web3 and incentivizes both tippers and tippees to crowdfund.
Ideas - quadratic funding, microtipping, escrows, cross-chain transactions
The BitClout developer documentation is still a work in progress but was helpful enough for our needs. Modifying the frontend code in Typescript and backend code in Go were our primary challenges.
Solana - We wanted to implement an escrow-based contract in Solana where the funds don't reach the tippee's wallet until after a certain time period. We were able to implement the contract but not use it in our final demo. Thus, the current demo is about a tipper on BitClout sending a small tip from their Sollet wallet to the tippee from their BitClout custom card.
