Users of the official Twitter mobile app for iOS can now accept cryptocurrency donations in the Bitcoin equivalent.
This functionality has now become available to the owners of Apple devices. To accept cryptocurrency, the user needs to connect a third-party service to the profile, for example, CashApp. The very possibility of donations in the equivalent of digital currency will be processed through the Lightning Network.
In addition, the team of the popular social network also announced the imminent integration of verification capabilities for non-fungible tokens. This, according to representatives of Twitter, will be one of the key steps in the development of the trend of digitalization of art, a separate type of which are avatars on social networks. However, no specific dates have yet been given for the addition of the NFT verification function.
The ability to send donations in the equivalent of digital currencies will soon appear on Android, but in the case of it, the team also chose not to announce the exact date. Twitter itself does not charge commissions or a percentage of the funds received by content makers. The payment options for “gratuity” will vary from country to country, depending on the region. The exception will be Bitcoin and Lightning, which will be active regardless of the location of the content author or his fan.
We will remind, in June, Jack Dorsey said that the integration of payments in Bitcoins using the Lightning Network "is only a matter of time." In addition, he was among the first to invest $2.5 million in Lightning Labs' kick-off funding round in 2018.
