Tipping bitcoin to native BTC addresses is now possible.
Twitter Has Added Bitcoin Advice
“You can now … add your Bitcoin address,” Twitter explains. “People can copy your address and paste it into a Bitcoin wallet of their choice to send you a payment directly.”
Users may also tip using Strike, a Lightning Network-based payment tool. This service is exclusively available to users in the United States and El Salvador, unlike native Bitcoin tipping.
Since early September, the feature has been in the works when it was first made available to a small group of beta testers.
Since May, tipping has been available
Since May, Twitter’s tipping service users have been able to transfer money using other connected platforms such as Bandcamp, Chipper, Patreon, Razorpay, WealthSimple Cash, and Venmo.
Square’s Cash App, led by Twitter founder and CEO Jack Dorsey, is also a tipping option.
GoFundMe and PicPay have been added to the company’s list of non-crypto tipping alternatives.
According to reports, the site aims to introduce non-fungible token functionality, allowing users to authenticate, track, and display their crypto collectibles.
