Twitter enables users to give and receive Ethereum tips natively

In Sept. 2021, Twitter enabled Bitcoin payments as the first cryptocurrency payment option available via its tipping jar. Wednesday, the social media platform added a slew of fresh payment services to these existing tipping options, including Ethereum (ETH).

Users looking to receive ETH tips simply need to enable the platform’s tipping features, and add an Ethereum address to the dedicated section of their profile. However, an attempt to add an ENS domain name in place of a full alpha-numeric address proved unsuccessful, prompting an error box that indicated punctuation was invalid.

When it comes to Bitcoin, tips can be sent through the Bitcoin Lightning Network, which sends payment using the Strike app. The company provided no other details pertaining to tipping in ETH, however. For now, tips are only available for users on iOS and Android phones. 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 out or reward anyone you want – from emerging creators and journalists to Twitter Spaces hosts.” Other payment services include Cash App, GoFundMe, Patreon, Wealthsimple and Venmo.

Recently, Twitter rolled out a feature that allows Twitter Blue users to upload nonfungible tokens, or NFTs, as their profile pictures, but limited that capability to iOS.
