Strike is a platform built on Bitcoin Lightning Network. The integration of Strike on the microblogging platform executes no cost and immediate international transactions.
There is a tiny money icon on the content creator’s profile, but the creator needs to turn it on. By doing it, the creators inform others that they accept Bitcoin Tipping.
Well, it was May this year. Twitter started the tipping experiment. It allowed creators to earn from their followers by posting content on the platform.
Product Lead Esther Crawford commented:
“We want Twitter to be the best place for creators to have conversations with their fans and to monetize their audience, all in the way that works best for them.”
