iPayYou, a Seattle-based bitcoin remuneration platform, is rolling out a new use that allows anyone with a Twitter comment to send and accept Bitcoin payments, but providing any private information.
Anyone regulating a “Pay-by-Twitter” apparatus can send bitcoins by entering a recipient’s Twitter hoop (rather than an email or bitcoin address).The twitter contains a couple to a iPayYou website where a target can accept a remuneration and deposition it as a bitcoin or trade it in for U.S. dollars.
iPayYou hopes Pay-by-Twitter will attract a broader user bottom for bitcoins. So far, the market for a crypto-currency has been sincerely niche.
“Twitter presents a singular event for iPayYou customers,” pronounced CEO Gene Kavner. “Hundreds of millions of business already use and know Twitter really well; they’re informed with a routine of logging into Twitter and interacting with their favorite calm publishers. At a same time, Twitter is also singular since it is a large amicable network that allows any user to censor their personally-identifiable information from other users.”
