Bitcoin, Dogecoin Or Ripple? Backers Fight Over Best Crypto For Elon Musk’s Twitter Payments
The cryptocurrency community is divided over which token Twitter should integrate into its database to function as a payment app. Some believe that (CRYPTO: DOGE) is the obvious choice, while others believe that (CRYPTO: XRP) or (CRYPTO: BTC) would be better suited for the task.
What Happened: Bitcoin bull and the co-founder of the investment firm Morgan Creek Digital, Anthony Pompliano, with 1.6 million followers on Twitter, said “If Elon Musk really wants to turn Twitter into a payments app then Bitcoin is the only payment network that can handle instantaneous, global micro-transactions at scale”.
This resulted in a heated debate.

Twitter tipping already allows users to send USD or BTC over the Bitcoin network, so natural extension.
