SG-1 proposes a community spend of 18500 SCRT to build the official Secret Tip-bot @secrettipbot app for Twitter and Telegram.
The application will be developed from scratch and linked to Twitter and Telegram and provide the ability for anyone to send SCRT tip transactions directly to any Twitter or Telegram handle via public tweets or in group chats.
A designated Secret Network node will process all transactions and ensure maximum uptime.
SG-1 is a network validator on Secret, Cosmos, Kava, Akash and Kichain. Run by Tobias Schwarz (Tosch) and Hubertus von Heyden (Immasssi) out of Berlin, Germany.
SG-1 has already successfully completed development for the official @Cosmostipbot and @Iristipbot (collaborative effort with Tendermint) which are automated tip applications for social media.
The @cosmostipbot currently has 1700+ active users and is processing up to 3000 transactions per month in its early days of adoption.
In order increase SCRT usage on social networks a designated Secret tip application @secrettipbot will be developed and provide a tool available to the community that allows for convenient, instant, transparent sending and receiving of SCRT directly via public tweets or in group chats. Tip transactions are always verifiable through the Secret Blockchain Explorer. Individual user accounts are directly linked to a users Twitter or Telegram ID.
Anyone may receive a tip, regardless of prior account creation. Advanced features will also be implemented which will allow for tip batching. This brings a convenience factor for users that want to tip many people/addresses at one time.
The Secrettipbot will have its own Twitter and Telegram account that runs the app, and can be interacted with by simply sending a direct message to the @secrettipbot account**
Additionaly @secrettipbot will be listed on cosmostipbot.com among the Cosmostipbot and Iristipbot. The website provides an easy to understand overview, guides and direct links to start initiating the tipping process.
**Basic tipbot wallet interactions:
Once a users sends a direct message to the @cosmostipbot with command !help a menu will pop up which allows for various commands to simply interact with a personal tipbot account. These include the following:
!help: The tip bot will respond to your DM with a list of commands and their functions. If you forget something, use this to get a hint of how to do it!
!register: Registers your user ID for an account that is tied to it. This is used to store your tips. Make sure to withdraw to a private wallet, as the tip bot is not meant to be a long term storage device for SCRT.
!balance: This returns the balance of the account linked with your user ID.
!account: Returns the account number that is tied to your user ID (currently unique to platform). You can use this to deposit more SCRT to tip from your personal wallet.
!withdraw: Proper usage is !withdraw secret_xxxxxx. This will send the full balance of your tip account to the provided Cosmos account.
Optional: You can include an amount to withdraw by sending !withdraw . Example: !withdraw 1 secret_xxxxxxxxx would withdraw 1 SCRT to account secret_xxxxx.
!donate: Proper usage is !donate 1234. This will send the requested donation to the Cosmos Tip Bot donation account to help fund development efforts.
!setlanguage: Used to change the default language of the bot. A list of available languages is provided in the !languages command. Proper use is “!setlanguage german” to change your language to German.
!languages: Returns a list of languages available for translation
Development & launch:
The @secrettipbot will be developed over a 3 week period after this proposal passes. After the app is completed and tested for bugs it will be launched and accompanied by a marketing campaign to increase initial exposure on Twitter and Telegram
SG-1 will run a designated node for the @secrettipbot to ensure maximum efficiency at all times. Just like the Cosmostipbot and Iristipbot, the server and regular maintenance cost is covered by a 5% flat fee which is automatically deducted from each tip.
Once the user base grows, the flat maintenance fee will be reduced.
The @secrettipbot will not be open-sourced to preserve the unique competitive advantage of the application.
SG-1 plans to run & service the @secrettipbot for many years to come and is excited to contribute to SCRT adoption on social networks
