At this point the report is unofficial, although Kayvon Beykpour, Twitter’s Product Lead, suggested that an announcement may be made very soon
According to reports, Twitter is working on a feature that would allow users to connect Bitcoin and Ethereum addresses to their Twitter accounts.
As a result of the recent update done in may, it is anticipated that Twitter’s Tip Jar function would allow content producers to tip in Bitcoin (BTC).
Mobile developer Alessandro Paluzzi, who describes himself as an anonymous “leaker,” posted images of the app version’s setting toolbar showing BTC and Ethereum (ETH) wallet addresses on Sept. 3.
Twitter’s product lead Kayvon Beykpour retweeted Paluzzi’s Sept. 1 post indicating the BTC tipping function with the lighting and “soon” arrow emojis, but even so the announcement is currently unofficial.
Earlier this year in July, CEO Jack Dorsey suggested that BTC tipping was part of Twitter’s wider ambitions to integrate that asset into the network via channels like as commerce and subscribing.
MacRumours reported on Aug. 31 that the Lightning Network payment platform Strike will be used for the BTC tipping functionality. When it comes to adding BTC addresses to user profiles, Paluzzi says that “it is not necessary to link a Strike account”.
