Twitter's iOS Beta Update Teases Bitcoin Integration in the Future

A new test feature on Twitter's iOS platform allows content creators to receive tips, laying the framework for future bitcoin tips. Twitter iOS has received a new beta version that adds support for bitcoin content creator tips. The "Tip Jar" function, which was introduced earlier this year, has coding that suggests Twitter will include a Bitcoin option.


Initially, users could add Bandcamp, CashApp, Patreon, Paypal, and Venom extensions to their profiles through the Tip Jar. Bitcoin tips will be available in the near future. In July, Twitter's CEO, Jack Dorsey, told investors that Bitcoin is vital to the company.


Users will be guided via a tutorial, according to more details from the recent testing. The bitcoin tutorial covers the Bitcoin Lightning Network as well as several wallets. Strike, Blue Wallet, and Wallet of Satoshi are currently listed as custodial wallets on Twitter, while Muun, Breez, Phoenix, and Zap are listed as non-custodial wallets.


Furthermore, the social media platform informs users that a Strike account is required. Strike is said to be used for Bitcoin Lightning invoices in the text. Users must connect their Strike accounts in order to receive their tips.


There is currently no information on when the Bitcoin option will be available. At the present, the feature isn't even available to all beta users. Nonetheless, it is a significant step forward for the entire Twitter community.


Twitter continues to push cryptocurrency forward.

Twitter's stance on cryptocurrency has shifted in the last year. The voices of several crypto-forward influencers were prohibited by the social media behemoth at the start of the year. Twitter is a great place to keep up with the newest crypto news and trends. Coins rise or fall as Elon Musk tweets or changes his profile photo.


The platform issued its own set of NFTs earlier this summer. Dorsey's own Tweet NFT, which sold for $2.9 million, preceded this.


Dorsey has taken an unabashedly enthusiastic stance on cryptocurrency and community growth. He discussed upcoming SEC restrictions and hinted at TwitterxLightning convergence.


Recently, the Twitter founder provided further information to his followers about his future decentralized Bitcoin exchange.
