Twitter Lets You Tip Creators With Ethereum

Twitter is not limiting cryptocurrency fans to tipping with Bitcoin. The social network has expanded your tip options to allow creators to add your Ethereum address. If you’re sitting on a stock of this other major cryptocurrency, it should be easier to show your support.

The expansion also adds support for a trio of payment services, including Barter, Paga and Paytm. You can submit tips by visiting the Tips icon on someone’s Twitter profile. If you want to receive tips and you are at least 18 years old, you can choose to edit your profile and activate tips.

Ethereum support comes in handy if you’re not as enthusiastic about Bitcoin as former Twitter boss Jack Dorsey. In some ways, though, the payment service support is more useful. Barter, Paga and Paytm are useful in India, Nigeria and other countries where mobile payments thrive. The Twitter move not only allows more people to give tips, it makes it more practical for digital creators to operate in certain countries – they’ll know their audience can contribute.
