Jack Dorsey has hinted that Twitter will integrate the Bitcoin layer 2 payments Lightning Network.
The Twitter founder had tweeted his appreciation for Lightning Network-powered messaging app Sphinx Chat, prompting a follower to ask for the network to be built into BlueSky or Twitter.
“Only a matter of time,” Dorsey replied.
The Lightning Network is a layer atop the Bitcoin blockchain designed to enable faster and cheaper transactions by enabling user-generated channels for sending and receiving payments.
Sphinx Chat is a wallet and encrypted messaging service that works over Lightning.
It is unclear what an integration with Twitter would bring. One possibility is the use of micropayments, for which Twitter-enabled solutions have been developed.
