Tech titan Twitter plans to launch a new branch focused specifically on blockchain and crypto. The new division will be known as “Twitter Crypto” and will only concentrate on blockchain” according to Tess Rinearson, who has been slated to lead the project.
In a thread, Rinearson says that one of the first priorities of the new division will be exploring how to assist creators in the use of decentralized apps (DApps) to manage virtual goods and currencies, and to help their work and communities. She additionally says the branch will work in collaboration with Bluesky, Twitter’s efforts at a decentralized social media platform. “And, of course, we’ll be working closely with the Bluesky team to help form the future of decentralized social media (and to make certain that Twitter stays on the cutting facet of this new landscape, too!). Twitter Crypto will underpin all of this work, and serve as a ‘center of excellence for all matters blockchain at Twitter. We’ll be hiring for roles in engineering and product. If this sounds exciting, please get in touch!”
