The new development team will be led by Tess Rinearson, who has already worked with Tendermint Core, Chain.com, Interchain Foundation and Cosmos
The social network Twitter will create a new team that will work with cryptocurrencies, blockchain and decentralized applications. This was announced by Tess Rinearson, who has joined the company as head of the division. Rinearson previously worked at Tendermint Core, Chain.com, Interchain Foundation and Cosmos.”We will be working to figure out what cryptocurrency can do for Twitter and what Twitter can do for cryptocurrency,” Rinearson wrote.
In September, the social network announced the ability to connect a cryptocurrency wallet to an account and import non-exchangeable tokens (NFT) for use as a profile image. NFT tokens in the profile image will be marked with a special icon that will confirm the authenticity of the token.
Also in September, Twitter added a feature that allows you to send donations in bitcoins. Transfers are made using the Lighting Network (which allows you to send bitcoins faster and cheaper). To send and receive cryptocurrency, users of social networks need to connect a Lighting wallet or bind their bitcoin address.
