Twitter confirms its interest in the world of cryptocurrencies. In these hours, in fact, the official confirmation has arrived regarding the creation of a dedicated team by the company that manages the social network. The new Twitter team will explore the potential of the crypto sector, blockchain and other decentralized technologies in order to evaluate possible future applications or possibly integrations with the activities already underway on the social network.
Twitter confirms that it is interested in cryptocurrencies
The new cryptocurrency team within Twitter will be led by Tess Rinearson who confirmed his new role in these hours. The announcement officially, of course, came with a tweet from Rinearson herself:
I’m thrilled to share that I’ve joined Twitter, to lead a new team focused on crypto, blockchains, and other decentralized technologies—including and going beyond cryptocurrencies.✨ pic.twitter.com/HaP0k5hUOq

The objectives of the project
Twitter’s new division, Rinearson revealed, will work closely with Bluesky. Recall that Bluesky is a division of the social network that has been working for some time on the development of a protocol to create a decentralized social network. Rinearson confirmed that the goal is to understand “what cryptocurrencies can do for Twitter” and at the same time evaluate “what Twitter can do for cryptocurrencies”. The new Twitter team is currently in development and will be enriched with new figures who will drive growth in the coming weeks. More details on the objectives of the new division will certainly arrive over the next few months.
