Ethereum Could Soon Be the Next Crypto Added to Twitter’s Tip Jar

First introduced in May 2021, Tips, a feature on the social media platform, Twitter, allows users to send money to influencers and content creators they wish to support from anywhere in the world.

Currently, the supported payment services are Bitcoin wallet, Strike (Bitcoin Lightning Network), Bandcamp, Cash App, Chipper, Patreon, Razorpay, Wealthsimple Cash, Venmo, GoFundMe, and PicPay.

In September, Twitter announced the integration of Bitcoin into its tipping service. Following the announcement, users gained the ability to add Bitcoin wallets and Lightning Network services to their profiles, allowing them to receive tips from users without any geographical restrictions. Ethereum could be the next crypto to feature to hit Twitter.

Twitter user @CryptoWhale, suggests that Ethereum (ETH) could be the next crypto to make it to the tipping jar. Ethereum has been hailed for having more functionality than Bitcoin, and its inclusion would make more sense than Bitcoin.

@CryptoWhale Tweeted;

Full-stack Android developer, working in Java and Kotlin, Alessandro Paluzzi, announced in September  that they were working on allowing users to send and receive Bitcoin and Ethereum as tips. Weeks later, Bitcoin was introduced to the platform. This in itself suggests that it won’t be long before Ethereum tips are introduced to Twitter users.
