Tech sleuth reveals ‘Twitter Coin’ indications
According to researcher Jane Manchun Wong, Twitter’s “tipping” function will support ‘Coin’ and cryptocurrency integration.
Twitter may take more definitive steps toward incorporating cryptocurrency payments, and maybe a native cryptocurrency.
Jane Manchun Wong, a security researcher, extracted code for a vector picture showing a “Twitter Coin,” which she released in a tweet that has since been removed. Wong also uploaded a picture of Twitter’s “Tips” feature’s “Coins” section.
Wong informed The Block that the code was retrieved from a recent version of the Twitter Web App. The Twitter Coin emblem may be associated with the crypto-integrated tipping function that Twitter seems to be developing.
“It has not yet been pushed out; there is little information available about what this is,” Wong stated in a message, adding that it is unknown if the team is actively developing the feature.
Following communication on LinkedIn, Wong’s social media accounts on LinkedIn and Twitter disappeared.
Elon Musk, the recently appointed CEO of Twitter, confirmed his interest in crypto payments in Twitter Spaces to a two million-person audience.
It is a no-brainer for Twitter to accept both money and cryptocurrencies, according to Musk. The creator of Tesla has often expressed his enthusiasm for incorporating cryptocurrency into Twitter.
