For over a year I have been anticipating a convergence of chat and crypto wallet technologies.
Dark Wallet has achieved this in a spectacular manner and I have reviewed it previously.
Now, the CannaCoin developers have released a new version of their #cannacoin channel freenode IRC tipbot that functions to integrate chat, tipping, accessing and analyzing live market data and conducting generalized wallet transactions. The clever solution, depending only on IRC accomplishes a dandy end-run around Apple Computer’s ban on mobile cryptocoin applications. With two copy/paste operations a cryptocoin payment is accomplished.
Generalized payments can be made, in CannaCoin, to any address in any amount. Through the inventive leveraging of IRC, CannaCoin now has a mobile payment solution that operates on every operating system and every mobile device.
I call your attention to the recently added !send command…
CannaTip now provides the following commands:
!send <Cannacoin address> <amount> - send CCN to an address
!balance - displays your current wallet balance
!address - displays Cannacoin address where you can send your funds to the tip bot
!withdraw <Cannacoin address> - withdraws your whole wallet balance to specified address (you will be charged 0.001CCN withdrawal fee)
!tip <nick> <amount> - sends the specified amount of Cannacoin to the specified nickname
!rain <amount> [max] - splits amount coins between max users or the whole channel
