The new Fundraiser for ProTip, Chris Ellis will hand make Bitcoin #Fullnode using nothing but available open source tools. He will do this for the price and working conditions of a Foxconn factory worker in Henan province of China.

ProTip will divide a small donation, say $1, in proportion to the time spent browsing your favorite websites.
This is a fair way to give back to those hard working artists and developers who maintain your favorite websites.
To ensure your privacy, ProTip is a Chrome Extension which runs only on your own hardware and does not 'phone home'.
When you visit a webpage, Protip searches for bitcoin addresses and automatically highlights them green. If one is found, then the time you spent on that website is recorded.
"Using small payments to support indie artists and content creators with digital currency"
"There are better ways to fund and support content/publishers than banner ads."
"Bravo to @ProTipHQ for raising $12,183 for this totally worthy project."
"ProTip is bringing us closer to something of a mythical quest for digital publishers: a financial incentive for substantive engagement as opposed to clicks." - Jay Cassano, Fast CompanyFastcoexist
"This sort of passive tipping gives smaller content producers the chance to build connections with a fanbase they may not have done in the past, allowing fans to more easily 'leave money on the table'." - Will Bancroft, HuffingtonpostHuffingtonpost
Simply copy/paste your Bitcoin address onto your page and ProTip will automatically detect your address. No plugins or third party widgets. Just your bitcoin address and nothing more.

New to Bitcoin?
Bitcoin is like email for cash. A public address, like your email, where people can send bitcoins, and a private password to ensure only you can spend received bitcoins. You can trade in your bitcoins at an exchange for your local currency or send them to another address for goods and services.
