Social media giant Twitter launched a “new team focused on cryptocurrencies, blockchain and other decentralized technologies,”.

The team will be called ”Twitter Crypto” and the woman who will lead the department is Tess Rinearson (Twitter), who has previously worked at payment provider Interstellar and also Tendermint, where she helped develop the Tendermint Core consent engine. In a Twitter post, Rinearson said her team’s work will “include” and “exceed cryptocurrencies.”

“We will explore how we can support the growing interest among creators in using decentralized applications to manage virtual goods and currencies and to support their work and communities. Looking ahead, we’ll explore how insights from cryptocurrency communities can help us push the boundaries of what’s possible with identity, community, ownership, and more.”
