THE crypto market received a boost following revelations from Twitter by +3% and Amazon by +0.5% on plans to take crypto currency serious, according Forbes.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey had on Thursday stated that his company has a future with Bitcoin.

While speaking on Twitter’s second-quarter earnings calls, Dorsey said Bitcoin could be the “best candidate” to become the “native currency” of the internet.

He added that it could help the social media giant move faster in terms of its product expansions.

He said, “If the internet has a native currency, a global currency, we are able to move so much faster with products such as Super Follows, Commerce, Subscriptions, Tip Jar and we can reach every single person on the planet because of that instead of going down a market-by-market-by-market approach.”
