The X social media giant formerly known as Twitter and now owned by Elon Musk, has successfully acquired the Crypto Wallet license to operate cryptocurrency wallet services within the borders of a US state. According to recent filings, X has been granted the Currency Transmission License in the state of Rhode Island.

X’s Crypto Wallet License and Its Implications

This regulatory approval now empowers the platform to offer cryptocurrency wallet services in full compliance with the law. As a result, X’s user base will gain the ability to securely store, send, and receive a variety of cryptocurrencies.

This strategic move could potentially revolutionize the platform’s role in the realm of online payments. Furthermore, this step has the potential to introduce cryptocurrencies to a wider audience, effectively broadening the scope of the crypto market to encompass new users.

A particularly intriguing aspect lies in how X intends to incorporate Dogecoin (DOGE) into its crypto wallet strategy. DOGE, a meme-inspired cryptocurrency, has often experienced significant price surges following mentions of it by Elon Musk in his tweets.

This ambition was revealed earlier in 2023, concurrent with the renaming of the platform from Twitter to X.

It’s worth noting that a recent report has highlighted PayPal’s introduction of its own stablecoin, PYUSD. Speculation was rife regarding potential integration of this US dollar-pegged stablecoin with X’s payment functionalities
