Twitter Expanded The Function Of Displaying Cryptocurrency Prices
Twitter developers have publicly added three dozen leading cryptocurrencies to a feature that displays asset price charts.
The additions were an extension of the $Cashtags initiative that Twitter Business announced on Dec. 21, 2022. Searching by a combination of the $ symbol and a ticker symbol of a public company, index or ETF began to display a price chart. Initially, the feature also supported the two largest cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin and Ethereum.
The option includes about 30 coins from the top 50 by capitalization. Among them: USDT, Binance USD (BUSD), Cardano (ADA), Solana (SOL), Polygon (MATIC), Litecoin (LTC), Avalanche (AVAX) Uniswap (UNI), Dogecoin (DOGE), Shiba Inu (SHIB) and others.
However, a number of leading cryptocurrencies do not support the feature. This applies, for example, to BNB (ranked 4th by capitalization). There are also no price widgets for Polkadot (DOT) and Tron (TRX) - both top-20 assets.
When introducing the $Cashtags feature in December, the Twitter team announced an improved user interface and expanded ticker coverage "in the coming weeks."
TradingView was announced as the provider of price data for the widget.
