Money can move like email

You may be here because someone tipped you some XLM, or you've seen the bot and you wonder what this is all about. Stellar Lumens, or XLM, is the native asset of the Stellar network - a decentralized payment network to bank the unbanked. You can find out more on the official Stellar site or start here.

Tipping

Comment on a tweet by the account you want to tip with a number followed by xlm and a mention of the bot @xlm_bot:

@xlm_bot 1 XLM
@xlm_bot 1.4123 XLM
@xlm_bot! Tip this gentleman 2.4123 xlm.
1.21xlm for this lady, @xlm_bot!

The XLM will be credited to the twitter account to which you replied. Note: Due to the rate limit of twitter it may take up to 12 seconds until your tip is there.

Deposit

In order to tip with the bot you need to send any amount of Lumens to:

GCQKBTYJHWSTHQWIKIQYAORZGHPSF2WXGNUYXO6A2VGKGSYUZNA2Y4E4

In the memo, put: twitter/your-user-name

The memo is important in order to deposit. Be sure to always send a memo and use your own username. You will receive a direct message on twitter once the XLM is deposited.

Withdrawal

Send a Twitter direct message to the bot with the text:

withdraw YOUR_AMOUNT XLM to YOUR_PUBLIC_KEY

YOUR_AMOUNT is the amount you want to withdraw, and YOUR_PUBLIC_KEY is your Stellar address. Hit send. You'll receive a message once the transaction is sent.

Balance

Send a direct message on Twitter to the bot saying tell me my balance. You'll receive a message with your current balance.

Anonymity

If you want to deposit without connecting the deposit with your username on the public ledger, you can change your memo id!

Send a direct message on Twitter to the bot, containing the text refresh my memo id. You will receive a fresh memo id associated with your Twitter username that you can use for subsequent deposits. You may refresh as often as you want.
