Ethereum is the second most popular cryptocurrency. Many are concerned whether Bitcoin has more potential or Ethereum has. However, experts believe that both the projects can potentially bring new evolution. Still, many strong Bitcoin proponents like Jack Dorsey, the co-founder of the social media behemoth, Twitter do hate Ethereum. Notably, it is noted that as Dorsey left his position as the CEO of the firm, Twitter has become more bullish on Ethereum.
Twitter will incorporate Ethereum
Jack Dorsey, had previously launched Bitcoin in its tips feature through the Lightning Network. But the strong BTC proponent did not have any plans to integrate Ethereum for the same. However, as Dorsey left his position, the mobile users of the platform announced the incorporation of Ether as a part of the Twitter-native tipping system.
Furthermore, the team behind the firm announced on Thursday the development to offer an array of options for as many as possible globally.
BTC and ETH tipping on Twitter
Both the iOS and Android applications of Twitter support the aforementioned tipping feature. According to a report published by the Twitter team, through the tips system, users will also be able to copy someone’s Ether and Bitcoin address and paste their’s into whatever wallet they use.
Twitter tipping system does not support ENS
Notably, the move of the firm followed Twitter’s continued exploration of the Ether ecosystem. The firm debuted NFTs verification for paid Twitter blue subscribers last month.
Such development came several months after Dorsey departed from the social media firms. Dorsey is not a big Ether fan, and is now leading payments company Block full time. Once, he asserted that he would never buy ETH.
Following the departure of the BTC maximalist, users on the social media platform speculated that leaving the position would usher in a more pro-Ethereum attitude at the firm.
Furthermore, Twitter’s feature supported international fintech providers Paga, Paytm, and Barter by Flutterwave. Thus, expanding tipping to users in Nigeria, India, and Ghana.
