Integrating bitcoin wallets with profiles, enabling "likes" to (optionally) reward posters for good content with BTC micropayments
Hey guys, newbie on Loomio but #oldhere on Diaspora. I've been on Steemit for a few days now and have absolutely fallen for the concept of "likes" being turned into micropayments to support creators/curators of good content. I know there's at least two more networks moving in this direction being released soon (Yours/DATT and Synereo) and I feel this feature's going to be huge in the social netowrking world soon and so I'm wondering... can we get that happening here? We have the user base to actually use it (unlike the other networks), and it would even facilitate donations to pods and podmins and to loads of other causes I haven't even thought of yet.
Discussion started here with @comradesenya, @herzmeister, and a few others: https://diasp.org/posts/5988024. What do you guys think?

Integrate BTC wallets w/profiles Closed Sun 2 Oct 2016
Thanks for the discussion, guys. I'm closing this issue, now doesn't seem the right time for it. I know payment integration is the natural next step in social networking, but I also appreciate the special vibe Diaspora's developed in being this quiet, reflective, noncompetitive space that it is.
I hope to see further developments on this front, but am leaving it be for now.
This allows for things like the (optional) rewarding of good posts with bitcoin mircopayments (instead of just "likes"), donations to podmins, and I'm sure loads of other things I haven't thought of yet. https://steemit.com, https://www.synereo.com, and https://www.yours.network are already doing this, and https://www.changetip.com does so for FB/Twitter/Reddit... and I feel this is the future of social networking. Leaving it up for a year because that's just how things move with us ; ).
