Show a button for sending quick donations to maintainers of bots, groups or channels using cryptocurrency. This could use either an established cryptocurrency like Bitcoin, Etherium, EOS, etc. – or some version of TON.
No, explain how you can trick a user into cryptocurrency if the user has to want to transfer the money themselves. If this channel or bot is fraudulent, Telegram will notify you with a "Scam" icon next to the channel/bot name.
Please do not link related issues without some word explaining what kind of link; e.g. duplicate, exclusive, blocking, etc
Donations are definitely a great idea, but I would ask that you take this suggestion another step forward by giving every content creator who owns a Telegram channel, three options:
The content creator should be able to decide whether they want to provide their content for free, accept optional donations or ask for a subscription fee whose amount they can set. It should be possible for the channel owner to
1. switch between these three modes at any time 2. change the price of subscription 3. set a free trial period
It would be up to the subscribers to decide whether this content is worth that much or not (whether to subscribe or not).
Actually, there are already two bots that solve this problem, at least for channels: @donate: donations and subscriptions (supports TON, bank cards, google and apple pay). @wallet: giveaway via the multicheque function (supports TON, BTC and USDT).
