Although the cryptocurrency industry had been around since 2009, it wasn’t until the end of 2019 when its true potential was realized. Then the year 2020 and 2021 came when the cryptocurrency industry flew so high that its height was unmatched by any online trading space.
Since then, the cryptocurrency industry has been flying high and more investors are joining the platform every passing day. By now, the entire world knows how much adoption has come towards the cryptocurrency world. Towards the end of 2019, the overall crypto-user base was around 34 million and at the time of writing, it is over 200 million.
One of the greatest demonstrations of the cryptocurrency sector is changing the views of the most influential people in the world. Until 2019, the majority of the billionaires and most influential businessmen and entrepreneurs were against cryptocurrencies.
However, the way these people perceived cryptocurrencies started changing towards the end of 2019. If the cryptocurrency industry had not completely changed such people by the end of 2019, it had definitely softened and cracked down.
Then the year 2020 and 2021 proved the turning points for such people who are now supporting cryptocurrencies instead of bashing them.
Among such people is the founder and CEO of Twitter, Jack Dorsey, who has proven to be a real Bitcoin-pro in recent years. He has made sure that his platform serves as one of the mediums of bringing a huge following towards the cryptocurrency sector.
Not only this, he has even incorporated cryptocurrencies on the Twitter platform in a very unique manner. He has used a common functionality such as upvoting or liking and has changed it into a tipping system. Now, the users on Twitter can either tip others or get tipped by others in cryptocurrencies.
Now, Twitter has made it official that the users will be able to use the tipping jar feature made available through the platform. The announcement in regards to the implementation of the tipping jar functionality was made through a blog post on Thursday, September 23, 2021.
The announcement was reportedly made by Esther Crawford, the product manager at Twitter. While making the announcement, Crawford revealed that for now, the tipping feature for cryptocurrencies would be available for iOS users. It does not matter where they are based geologically, they will be able to use the feature if they are using the iOS operating system.
Crawford asked the android users not to worry about not being able to use the feature at all. They are currently working on the rollout of the tipping jar feature for android users. He stated that the rolling out process may take up to a few weeks, but it will be put in place soon.
