Notably, the approving reaction came in response to a tweet by Brendan Berry, the Head of Payments Products at Ripple, who voiced his view on why Twitter should adopt crypto

Berry ignited a thought-provoking discourse alluding to Elon Musk’s vision of Twitter evolving into the ultimate digital haven for livelihood. For this aspiration to materialize, Berry opined that cryptocurrency must take center stage in Elon Musk’s contemplations.

Berry expressed that Twitter must extend its reach beyond the United States and cater to creators worldwide to achieve the goal. He emphasized allowing creators to be paid in their preferred currency or country.

Problem Statement

Berry pointed out a significant challenge in making international payments efficient for small amounts. He noted that after factoring in Twitter’s operational costs and international wire fees, the expenses of transferring funds to creators could sometimes exceed the actual payout.

Additionally, Berry argued that requiring creators to have a bank account could prove limiting, considering a substantial portion of the global population remains unbanked. Berry acknowledged the shortcomings of traditional cross-border fiat payments, which often take several business days.

XRP Resolves This

The Ripple Head of Payments Products proposed that Twitter could leverage cryptocurrencies to revolutionize creator payments. According to him, by using crypto, Twitter could provide instant payments to creators while offering unmatched currency flexibility. 

He mentioned the benefits of using fiat-backed stablecoins and well-known cryptocurrencies like XRP, Bitcoin (BTC), and Ethereum (ETH).

According to Berry, the real differentiator would be enabling creators to receive payments immediately or every hour through crypto. While Berry did not explicitly position XRP as the only ideal asset, his position as a Ripple employee has triggered such assumptions from the XRP community.

Berry noted that by partnering with entities that facilitate crypto-to-fiat conversions, creators could instantly convert their crypto earnings to their local currency.

Monica Long, President of Ripple, responded to the thoughts with a simple light bulb emoji, indicating her recognition of the innovative potential of the ideas.
