Bitcoin may be a preferred method of payment for a slew of tech-savvy people, but it has yet to take off with the masses, or even micro-masses. iPayYou, the bitcoin wallet, is aiming to change that with a new service launched today (July 14).

Dubbed Pay-by-Twitter, iPayYou is the first bitcoin wallet that enables Twitter’s 310 million monthly active users to make peer-to-peer payments over Twitter. With this new service, iPay wallet users can send a payment by simply entering the recipient’s Twitter handle instead of an email or bitcoin address. That means a payment exchange can happen without both parties exchanging private information. According to the company, it marks the first time a service like this is being offered by a full-service wallet.

Bitcoin wallet provider iPayYou, Inc. has launched a new “Pay-by-Twitter” feature that allows users to make peer-to-peer payments on Twitter.

iPayYou is claimed to be the first bitcoin wallet that enables Twitter’s 310 million monthly users to make peer-to-peer payments over Twitter. Payments are made by simply entering a recipient’s Twitter account name instead of an email of bitcoin.

The advantage of the system is said to be that the exchange can happen without both parties exchanging private information.

Once a payment is sent via iPayYou the recipient receives a tweet letting them know that they have received a payment from iPayYou that includes a link to the iPayYou website for the recipient to accept a payment.

The payment itself can then be deposited in bitcoin into another wallet or traded for dollars which can be deposited directly into the recipient’s bank account.
