Markus described DOGE as the “original tipping cryptocurrency” of the internet. For example, in 2014 the community raised the necessary money to allow the Jamaican bobsled team to participate in the Winter Olympics.
The petition in question says that Dogecoin has the lowest transaction fees of the major cryptocurrencies, making it perfect for sending tips.
Last May, Twitter launched its “tip jar” feature that allows money to be sent to other users of the social media platform. The feature was billed as a way to support content creators.
Originally, only traditional payment solutions such as PayPal, Venmo, and Block’s Cash App were among the options available. In late September, Twitter also enabled support for Bitcoin, making it possible to send tips via the Lightning Network.
After rolling out hexagonal profile pictures for non-fungible tokens (NFTs) in January, the popular social media platform also added Ethereum tips earlier this week.
At the time of going to press, 1,730 people have signed the petition following Markus’ effort to boost the community.
The co-founder of Dogecoin seems determined to make Twitter support for the best meme coin possible. On Thursday, he promised to publish at least one tweet about it daily.
Twitter has not indicated that it is ready to add support for more cryptocurrencies.
