Crypto key management platform, Torus now allows users to send cryptocurrencies through social media platforms such as Twitter, GitHub.

With Torus’ latest update, v1.7.2, users can now send tokens to any Twitter or GitHub account, even if that account has never used Torus’ crypto wallet.

Announced on July 6, Torus showcased a couple of Twitter transactions, featuring 0.01 Ether (ETH) transfers to major crypto figures such as:

Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin:

Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao, as well as Elon Musk:

The new update brings six new logins to the Torus Wallet and DirectAuth, a tool allowing users to manage app-specific private keys, while storing it in the distributed Torus Network.

Users can now create a new Ethereum blockchain wallet with any of their social identities including:

  • Google
  • Facebook
  • Reddit
  • Twitch
  • Discord
  • AppleID
  • Github
  • LinkedIn
  • Twitter
  • Line
  • Passwordless Accounts

Logging into Torus via accounts such as Twitter or passwordless logins is based on Auth0, a login service provider that integrates authentication and authorization for web, mobile and legacy applications.

Auth0 works as a proxy that links Torus accounts to the verifier such as Twitter or Apple.

Founded in 2018, Torus rolled out ETH transaction tests on Reddit and Google email accounts in December 2019.

In May 2018, Torus launched its noncustodial key management solution DirectAuth to improve log-in experiences for Web 3.0 applications.

Torus is apparently not the only company working on powering crypto transactions through identities linked to various apps and accounts.

In June, crypto website introduced a new service that allows users to send any amount of Bitcoin Cash (BCH) via email.
