BitReply is a new commenting system for websites and weblogs with the option to endow comments with a small donation.
BitReply allows visitors to join the discussion in a more meaningful way by literally "throwing in their two cents". These small donations can be considered as tips for the person who made the commendable or praiseworthy comment. The money is sent directly from person to person with no middleman or risk. Endowed comments preponderate over normal ones which creates an incentive to write relevant replies. This system results in higher quality weblogs with more significant discussions.

Visitors can endow comments with any amount they like but the default tip amount is set to 2¢.
BitReply uses Bitcoin internet money for the micropayments. To be able to use this feature all you need is a Bitcoin Wallet with some digital cash in it. You can get your own Bitcoin wallet and some coins here.
