Users of Twitter’s mobile app now have the option of tipping content creators in Ethereum, the second-largest cryptocurrency.

The addition of Ethereum comes following the company’s launch of Bitcoin tipping in late September.

The “tip jar” feature on Twitter, which allows users to earn money from their followers, was first offered in early May.

In late January, subscribers of Twitter Blue, the website’s premium service, were given the option of using their valuable non-fungible tokens as profile images.

OnlyFans, an adult-oriented video subscription site, followed Twitter’s lead earlier this week, enabling producers to display their NFTs, according to U.Today.

Former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, who is widely regarded as one of the most powerful Bitcoin proponents, has actively criticized Ethereum support, frequently picking disputes with its community. The billionaire handed over the keys in late November to ex-CTO Parag Agrawal, who looks to be more open-minded regarding other cryptocurrencies than his predecessor.
