Twitter Brings in Support for Ethereum Tipping

By News Desk

Social media titan Twitter has expanded its tipping options to support Ethereum (ETH), the company said in an announcement yesterday.

“Through Tips, you’ll also be able to copy someone’s Bitcoin or Ethereum address and paste their address into whatever wallet you use,” Twitter said in a blog.

“You will be able to send tips from your account on the third-party service and recipients will be able to see your username on that service. Information about you, including, but not limited to, your full name, address and your tip may be shared with the recipient or others, subject to the terms of the third-party payment service.”

Twitter of course rolled out Bitcoin tipping in September, but was obviously set on expanding its horizons after BTC maximalist and former CEO Jack Dorsey left to focus on Spiral.

Users can tip others on Twitter by clicking on the stack-of-cash tip icon at the top of one’s profile, grab the ETH address and send away.

“We’re continuing to expand ways to get paid on Twitter which includes more choices for creators and fans who want to use crypto,” Johnny Winston, lead product manager of creator monetization at Twitter, said in a statement. “We’re excited to add the ability for anyone to add their ETH address to Tips.”

Currently, Twitter will not support Ethereum Name Service (ENS) domain names, but it will support ETH and ERCi20 tokens. The feature is currently only available for iOS and Android mobile phones.

The expansion of its crypto tipping feature comes less than a month after the tech unicorn began integrating non-fungible token (NFTs) into its platform. Some users are now able to use their own NFTs for their profile photos in hexagonal shape.

Twitter also displays details about the NFT like its name, creator, owner and smart contract address.
