Twitter crypto team looking for a senior project manager
The Twitter crypto team was only set up in November 2021
Twitter is advertising for the position of senior project manager on the crypto team to join the social networking site.
On the 21 January, Tess Rinearson, crypto lead at Twitter, promoted the position on her Twitter profile.
Along with the Twitter job offering, Rhinearson wrote: “Want to help shape the future of crypto at Twitter?”
Rhinearson went onto say that, although it does not specify in the job advert, the person stepping into the role will be her “thought-partner in exploring all the opportunities for crypto x twitter”.
Twitter Crypto is a new team
Twitter Crypto was announced by the company in November 2021, with Rhinearson as its team lead.
The job advert states that the goal of Twitter Crypto is to “figure out what crypto means for Twitter, and what Twitter means for crypto”.
The team is exploring decentralised technologies, such as blockchain and cryptos, and is “bridging web2 and web3”.
The position requires the individual to “serve as a domain expert on all things crypto for the company” and to partner with product and engineering teams across the organisation to explore crypto initiatives.
As well as informing new strategic initiatives in the blockchain and web3 space.
The position requires the individual to have at least four years of experience in product management and to be familiar with dApps, blockchain or web3 primitives like non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and decentralised autonomous organisations (DAOs).
The advert also requires someone who is open-minded and curious about the crypto industry.
Twitter launches NFT authenticator for profile pics
Recently, Twitter has rolled out a feature that verifies the authenticity of NFTs displayed in users’ profile pictures.
The new tool has been introduced to Twitter Blue users on Apple iOS. Twitter Blue offers users “exclusive access to premium features” and has only been launched in the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand so far.
Introduced to users on 20 January, this feature is only available to subscribers of Twitter Blue. Official NFTs will be given a hexagonal border instead of the traditional circular one.
The tutorial video showed users that they can connect their Coinbase, Rainbow, MetaMask, Trust Wallet, Argent or Ledger Live wallets to Twitter Blue to upload their NFTs.
