MoneroTipsBot is shutting down

I started working on /u/MoneroTipsBot in 2019 as a bit of a side project to give back to Monero. It was a wild ride and I had a lot of help from great members in the community like jtgrassie and dsc_, but inevitably, all centralized things come to an end. It is not an easy decision for me to make, but the regulatory framework in the country where the server is hosted keeps tightening its grip. I've taken several steps over the years to protect MoneroTipsBot from legal repercussion, and while there's no logical reason for a criminal to use the service, I don't have the legal backing to argue that in court if the time comes. For those who still have Monero in the service, you still have access to your wallet private key (if you requested it) and I recommend you withdraw your funds as soon as possible. If you do not have a private key, I'm keeping the service open to withdrawals for amounts less than $1,000 for the next little while, and after that it will only be open to extracting your private key. ***** I know there's going to be a lot of questions, so I'll try to answer them best I can in a short FAQ: # Scam! Where's my Monero!? * Please access your Monero through your [private key](https://www.reddit.com/message/compose/?to=MoneroTipsBot&subject=My%20private%20info&message=I%20understand%20this%20will%20give%20me%20my%20PRIVATE%20key%20that%20can%20be%20used%20to%20access%20my%20funds.) # Why are you shutting down? * Legal risks # Why didn't you shut down earlier? * These regulations are new # How long will the service be up for? * Withdrawals will be up for the next couple months for amounts less than $1,000 * Retreiving your [private key](https://www.reddit.com/message/compose/?to=MoneroTipsBot&subject=My%20private%20info&message=I%20understand%20this%20will%20give%20me%20my%20PRIVATE%20key%20that%20can%20be%20used%20to%20access%20my%20funds.) will be up indefinitely # I only saw this post in year XXXX, and the withdraw isn't working.
