Choosing bot permissions

Although all permissions tip.cc requests are technically optional, removing them might disable some of the features.

Default permissions when authorizing tip.cc
  • Embed Links is used to format the bot’s messages. When disabled, its responses will fall back to a plaintext format, but the bot remains fully functional.
  • Read Message History and Add Reactions are necessary for airdrops and paginated commands like $balances or $help.
  • Use External Emojis is required to display cryptocurrency icons.


Once your bot is authorized and joins your server, you can proceed with the configuration. Although the bot requires no configuration and works out of the box, it provides a couple of settings you might want to tweak. Using the $config command you can alter the command prefix, default server currency and other options.

Default server currency

To set the default server currency (by default Bitcoin), use the $config currency command. All fiat amounts in tips, airdrops, etc., will use this currency, unless specified otherwise (e.g. a $1 eth tip).

Other server currencies

Besides the default server currency, tip.cc will enable all the other cryptocurrencies to be tipped on your server. You can edit the list of supported currencies with $config currencies.
