Twitter has announced the formation of a crypto section to oversee its blockchain and crypto-related operations.
Twitter goes on to say that it “wants to figure out what crypto can do for Twitter” and that it is willing to pool large sums of money in order to improve and investigate the decentralized technology.
Tess Rinearson, an engineer, will lead the newly established crypto team. Rinearson worked for a number of notable companies before joining Twitter, including Chain.com and Cosmos, and was also engaged in the creation of Tendermint Core, a popular blockchain platform.
What does the future hold for Crypto Twitter?
The new team, according to Rinearson, will work with her in the areas of cryptocurrencies, blockchain, and other decentralized technologies to develop solutions that aren’t immediately tied to the financial sphere and “including moving beyond cryptocurrencies.”

Rinearson goes on to say that the business would look at how it might help artists who are interested in using decentralized apps to manage virtual products and services. Tess also notes that the new adjustments are available to customer feedback, as she believes it is vital to understand the company’s operational flaws in order to improve its performance.
Furthermore, the new crypto chief intends to foster decentralized applications, or dapps, in conjunction with other identity-oriented solutions, asset ownership, and a strong united community.
First, we’ll be exploring how we can support the growing interest among creators to use decentralized apps to manage virtual goods and currencies, and to support their work and communities.— Tess Rinearson (@_tessr) November 10, 2021
The staff will go by the moniker “Crypto Twitter” and will be in charge of overseeing all-important Web 3.0 procedures. To assist speed up the recruiting process, Rinearson has also asked potential engineers and product managers to apply via Twitter.
Twitter Crypto will underpin all of this work, and serve as a “center of excellence” for all things blockchain at Twitter. We’ll be hiring for roles in engineering and product. If this sounds exciting, please get in touch! My DMs, as always, are open. ✨— Tess Rinearson (@_tessr) November 10, 2021
