  • Improved help command, where you can say "help tip" to get more in depth help of the tip command.
  • On startup, call getBlockchainStatus API function and check isDownloading property. If true, shut down with proper error message.

  • Config option for posting confirmation on a separate channel, or maybe just as DM to the sender+recipient.

  • When trying to tip and sender has 0 NXT, use a more humoristic error message, like 'you're all out mate'.
  • Support having tip command as a part of a multi line chat message.
  • Stats command with support for total number of tips sent and total amount sent.
  • Add support for more units (USD, EUR, beer, etc.).
  • Add support for icons as units, ie. a beer icon instead of the text 'beer'.
  • Add file logging (NLog).
  • Use AES 256 encryption for secret phrases.
    Decryption key to be stored in config file/passed as parameter/read from environment variable.
  • Add new command 'initiate' where a public key is provided to initiate a new NXT address.
  • Support for multiple slack teams.
