Accordingly, X (Twitter) is making waves in the financial world as regulators in Rhode Island grant the company a currency transmitter license – a legal permission necessary for any business handling fiat and crypto assets on behalf of users. This accomplishment is another leap towards founder Elon Musk’s vision of making X an “everything app” with all-round capabilities for both fiat and crypto payments.
Although insiders suggest that X’s upcoming payments feature will initially support fiat currencies alone, developers at X are said to have already begun work on incorporating crypto functionality in the future, taking a cue from Musk’s lead.
This license marks the fourth time X has succeeded in securing a money transmitter license, bringing the total to seven states now. With payment features potentially coming down the pipeline, people familiar with X’s plans state that the payment system will resemble PayPal’s fiat currency transactions, with room to add crypto integration.
DOGE Jumps as Elon Musk’s X App Gets Closer to Crypto Payments Adoption
After the exciting news broke, the price of Dogecoin, a cryptocurrency beloved by Elon Musk, experienced a thrilling surge of approximately 2.55%. Although it dipped shortly after, the DOGE army eagerly awaits Musk’s integration of Dogecoin as a crypto payment option on the X app. As a result, the anticipation of Twitter Payments LLC receiving these licenses has reached a fever pitch among the passionate community of meme coin enthusiasts. Currently, DOGE is valued at $0.06455, boasting an impressive 4.34% jump.
Notably, the recent ascent of DOGE is further propelled by the sudden rise in Bitcoin’s value, stemming from Grayscale’s victorious legal battle against the SEC regarding the Bitcoin ETF case.

What’s more, Tesla has already opened its virtual doors to Dogecoin payments for merchandise in its online store, starting in December 2021. And that’s not all – the momentum continues to build as even SpaceX followed suit and began accepting DOGE payments for their mission patches in Spring 2022.
