- Twitter has been discovered to provide Bitcoin and Ethereum address choices.
- Tip Jar’s Bitcoin support has been confirmed.
- The Lightning Network could be used by Twitter to integrate Bitcoin.
The new function could be intended to improve on the Tip Jar feature that was released earlier this year by the microblogging network. Through the Tip Jar function, Twitter is working on allowing users to receive tips in Bitcoin.
In a conversation with analysts and investors in July, CEO Jack Dorsey urged the adoption, calling Bitcoin a “big part” of the company’s future.
Alessandro Paluzzi, a mobile app developer, discovered references to Twitter allowing users to add Bitcoin and Ethereum addresses to their profiles.
The developer revealed the additional possibilities in a tweet that included three screenshots. The first screenshot implies that users would be able to copy Bitcoin and Ethereum addresses and use the Tip Jar feature to send tips in any of the two cryptocurrencies.
Twitter appears to allow users to add Bitcoin and Ethereum addresses to their profiles in the second and third ones.
Twitter’s product head Kayvon Beykpour replied to the tweet with a lightning bolt emoji and the word “soon” to confirm the project’s development and impending release.
Beykpour did not share any additional information regarding when users will be able to accept tips in Bitcoin using Tip Jar.
However, Paluzzi’s screenshot suggests that Twitter is considering using money transfer technology The Lightning Network to allow Bitcoin tipping on its site.
For a long time, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has been a proponent of cryptocurrencies. He predicted that Bitcoin will “unite a deeply divided country” in August. During Twitter’s July earnings call, Dorsey called the “huge part” of the company’s future.
