In initial testing, users were able to tip in fiat currency using more traditional payment services such as Square's Cash App and PayPal's Venmo. Twitter has now integrated the Strike Bitcoin Lighting wallet service to enable creators to tip with Bitcoin. The company will also allow users to add their Bitcoin addresses in order to send and receive cryptocurrencies.
In addition, Twitter said it was also experimenting with a feature that would allow users to authenticate and showcase their collections of NFT digital assets on a social network. This is a way to support the creators of digital art, although no other details have been revealed about this project.
The CEO of Twitter is a long-time supporter—and one of the most active supporters—of Bitcoin and aims to attract users to the cryptocurrency. He said that Bitcoin is the most important thing to work on because it will bring peace to the world.
