— NOTICE —

AppleByte, the digital currency supporting artists, is changing its name to ArtByte.

ArtByte is the person to person way to support artists. Using the emerging technology of digital currencies, ArtBytes can be given to any artist, anywhere in the world (Musicians, actors, film makers, directors, editors, producers, dancers, painters, sculptors, writers, photographers, designers, models, production team, all kinds of artists). Now art lovers can support their favorite artists directly. When a fan sees an artist’s work they appreciate, instead of just liking or faving them, fans can give them ArtBytes (which can then be converted to cash, used at restaurants, concerts, movies, theaters, etc.) — Learn more at http://artbyte.me


Due to the requirements of the NY BitLicence, this tipping app is not available to residents of New York.

If you've received a tip and haven't registered yet, you need to send a message to /u/artistgift, to register your account. Send the message +accept, which creates an account for you. Our tipping app automatically recognizes your account (by your Reddit name) and in a few minutes messages back, showing your balance. You can then +withdraw coins and/or send tips with the +/u/artistgift command to other Artists on Reddit.

Check here to see where you can spend your ArtBytes: Places to use ArtBytes

Deposit some ArtBytes in your personal wallet. Get one here if you do not have one: http://wallet.artbyte.me/#/signin and follow the instructions below to deposit ArtBytes from your Tipping wallet.

If you need some ArtBytes, you can get them here: Buy/Sell & Trade ArtBytes

To deposit and start tipping ArtBytes, please direct message +register to account ArtistGift. Within minutes the app will reply to you, and you may send +info to generate a new personal ArtByte tipping wallet address. Send a deposit to that wallet address just as you would with any other ArtByte transaction. In a few minutes, check your balance, by messaging +info again.

Once there is a balance in your Tipping App wallet (either from a deposit you made or tips you have received), you can send ArtBytes to your favorite artists anywhere in the world via Reddit. To tip other users or send tips directly to a given address, use this command:

+/u/artistgift [@user|ADDRESS] [AMOUNT] artbytes

So for example:

+/u/artistgift @taylorswift 1000 artbytes will send 1000 applebytes to Taylor Swift. If your tip was successfully sent, the Tipping App will reply and send out a direct message to Taylor Swift, letting her know you sent a 1000 ArtByte tip and tell her how to redeem them.


Replying to a comment with +/u/artistgift 300 artbytes will send 300 aby to the particular user. See it in action by clicking here.

Once you receive some ArtBytes you can either use them to tip others or you can move them to your own wallet. If you've received a tip and haven't registered yet, you need to +accept it first, which creates an account for you. Our tipping app automatically recognizes your account (by your Reddit name) and in a few minutes messages back, showing your balance. You can then +withdraw coins and/or send tips with the +/u/artistgift command to other Artists on Reddit.
