Twitter allows users to give and receive tips on Ethereum completely natively

X-Node Details

In September 2021, Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) enabled Bitcoin payments as the first cryptocurrency payment option available through its tip jar. On Wednesday, the social media platform added a number of new payment services to these existing tipping options, including Ethereum (ETH).

Users who want to receive tips in ETH just have to enable the tipping features of the platform and add an Ethereum address in the dedicated section of their profile. 

However, an attempt to add an ENS domain name instead of a full alphanumeric address was unsuccessful, resulting in an error box indicating that the score was invalid.

As far as Bitcoin is concerned, tips can be sent through the Bitcoin Lightning Network, which sends payment through the Strike app. However, the company did not provide any other details regarding ETH tips. 

For now, tipping is only available to iOS and Android phone users. According to Twitter, users keep 100% of the tips they receive.

The company stated that tips can be used to show support, show appreciation, help, or reward anyone you want, from up-and-coming creators and journalists to Twitter Spaces hosts. Other payment services are Cash App, GoFundMe, Patreon, Wealthsimple, and Venmo.

Twitter recently rolled out a feature that allows Twitter Blue users to upload non-fungible tokens, or NFTs, as their profile pictures, but limited that ability to iOS.
