Jack Dorsey-led social media giant Twitter is launching its Tips feature, allowing 18+ years old users to tip each other with bitcoin (BTC), among other means.
According to the company, people can now tip with BTC using Strike – a payments application built on the Bitcoin Lightning Network that is now being used in El Salvador.
The new feature is being rolled out to iOS users first, while Android devices should support Twitter tips “over the coming weeks.”
“People in the eligible markets will have to sign up for a Strike account and add their Strike username to receive Bitcoin tips over the Lightning Network. You can use any Bitcoin Lightning wallet to send tips to someone’s Strike account,” per the company.
At 04:24 UTC, BTC trades at USD 44,336 and is up by 0.4% in a day, while almost all other major coins are in red today.
