Twitter Adds Ethereum (ETH) Support to Its Tips Feature

After Bitcoin (BTC), Twitter adds Ethereum (ETH) support to its Tips feature allowing creators and influencers to receive tips from fans in Ether.

The official handle of Twitter Support on Wednesday, February 16th, announced that Twitter has added four more tipping options to its Tips feature that include Paga, Barter by Flutterwave, and Paytm. The most notable addition is Ethereum support that would enable users to add their Ethereum addresses into Tips.

Esther Crawford, Twitter’s product lead for creator monetization, wrote:

“Today we’re adding new global payment options to Tips so you can get paid no matter where you are in the world. This includes a new option to send ETH by adding your Ethereum address.”

Ethereum (ETH) Follows Bitcoin Tips

As Crypto Economy reported, Twitter launched its tipping feature, called Tips, in September of 2021 starting with Bitcoin and several other options that included Cash App, Bandcamp, Venmo, Wealthsimple Cash, Patreon, Razorpay, and Chipper. The Tips feature was initially released for iOS users only, followed by Android support. Twitter help center notes that Tips is currently not available on the web.

Twitter’s Tips feature allows Android and iOS users to add their third-party payment profiles in one fixed spot. People can then choose their preferred option to tip their favorite creator.

Bitcoin (BTC) was the first crypto option on Tips. The Bitcoin tipping function allows users to send and receive tips through Bitcoin Lightning Network by using Strike App. Users can sign up for a Strike account and add their Strike username to receive Bitcoin tips over the Lightning Network. Users can use any Bitcoin Lightning wallet to send tips to someone’s Strike account.

With the addition of Ethereum (ETH) support, users can now add their Ether wallet address to Tips. To send ETH tips, fans can copy their favorite creator’s address and paste it into whatever wallet they use.

Both companies owned by Jack Dorsey are now fully committed to crypto and blockchain. Although Jack has departed from the company, Twitter is moving forward with its crypto plans. Twitter has recently released an NFT profile picture feature as part of its Twitter Blue project that allows users to show off the NFTs they own in a hex-shaped profile picture on their Twitter account.

Block (formerly Square) is working to create Bitcoin mining rigs and decentralized exchange (DEX) focused on Bitcoin.
