Twitter takes a deeper dive into the crypto world, allowing users to tip one another in Ethereum alongside Bitcoin. This feature is only currently available for mobile.

  • According to Twitter’s updated tipping policy, users who agree to it can “copy someone’s Bitcoin or Ethereum address and paste their address into whatever wallet [they] use.”
  • In September, the platform introduced Bitcoin tipping over the lightning network, allowing users to connect their lightning addresses to their accounts.
  • However, some hackers noted Ethereum wallet compatibility was also embedded within Twitter’s code some weeks before Bitcoin tips were launched, including Alessandro Paluzzi and Jane Wong.
  • Ethereum’s late introduction may be attributable to Jack Dorsey, who was still in charge of Twitter last year. The billionaire left the company in December and has since dedicated himself to building Bitcoin infrastructure at Block.
  • However, he has shown distaste for cryptocurrencies besides Bitcoin – including Ethereum, which he’s suggested is “centralized” and driven by “corporate-controlled lies”.
  • Nevertheless, Twitter has embarked on various other Ethereum related projects in his absence. They launched a crypto team for developing dapps in November, alongside verified NFT profile pictures in January.
  • “We are expanding ways to get paid via Twitter, which includes more options for creators and fans that want to use cryptocurrency,” stated Johnny Winston, lead product manager of creator revenue at Twitter – to CoinDesk.
