Twitter rumors of crypto integration circulating
Famed for researching codes on Twitter, Wong's Twitter account was allegedly suspended shortly after sharing potentially leaked data.
Twitter may be considering integrating cryptocurrency payments and potentially creating its native coin, according to code extracted from a recent version of the Twitter Web App by Security Researcher Jane Manchun Wong.
Famed for researching codes on Twitter, Wong’s Twitter account was allegedly suspended shortly after sharing a “Twitter Coin” vector image and a “Coins” section within Twitter’s “Tips” feature.
Twitter’s potential integration of cryptocurrency payments and the creation of a native coin is currently unclear, as it remains to be seen if the team is actively working on the feature. However, Twitter CEO, Elon Musk, has previously expressed interest in integrating crypto into the platform — specifically advocating Dogecoin (DOGE) both publicly and subliminally.
Some Twitter members spoke out regarding the suspicious disappearance of Wong from the internet following the leak.
While other users, such as entrepreneur James Jansson alleged Wong’s disappearance was associated with ‘a racist attack’.
Among all these rumors, one fact is clear. Wong revealed code that hinted at Twitter crypto integration and what followed was the closure and/or deletion of Wong’s Twitter account.
