    Do you folks plan to add support for different tip amounts, either entered by the blogger or the reader (<- that would be awesome)?

    The description mentions “default is 300 bits,” but it’s more of a hard-coded value at the moment as far as I can tell.

    The default tip amount is 300 bits, but that amount can be changed by the tipper in settings: https://www.coinbase.com/settings. We need to make that more clear, thanks for the feedback.

    The default is designed so that users think of the button as more of a “FB like” than making a payment like they’ve historically thought about making a payment online. We’re trying to reduce the mental transaction costs of micropayments that Nick Szabo has written a lot about. 10 cents is something you don’t have to think twice about– if you like the content, you will click the button and contribute to the creator. We think this is pretty powerful. but are definitely open to feedback.

    Thanks, that would be awesome! I would have never looked there if you hadn’t of mentioned it here. 🙂

    I agree, I like 10 cents too, but a custom option would be really nice in case there was that one person who felt the article they just read was worth way more than 10 cents. 🙂

    Maybe keep the focus on the big blue 300 bits button, but have a small and light custom option below it? Here’s a very rough mockup: https://cloudup.com/cx_mtVxxRYl
