During a brand new interview on the Tales from the Crypto podcast, he said that the BTC whitepaper is one of the “most seminal works” of the last 20 years.
He addressed the subject of Bitcoin and the blockchain tech, and he detailed the ways in which he believes that these can impact the growth of the Internet overall.
He basically believes that we’re looking at a “massive acceleration” that’s on the horizon.
Square Crypto initiative to improve Bitcoin
Just the other day, Dorsey has revealed the launch of Square Crypto which is an initiative via which he is paying people to “make the broader crypto ecosystem better,” reports Cryptoslate.
He announced this on Twiter and he’s asking his strategic development lead at Square, Mike Brock, “what is the most impactful thing we [Square] could do for the bitcoin community?” This is a conversation that sparked the creation of Square Crypto.
This will be Square’s first open source initiative independent of our business objectives. These folks will focus entirely on what’s best for the crypto community and individual economic empowerment, not on Square’s commercial interests. All resulting work will be open and free.
Dorsey elaborated and said that Square had taken quite a lot from the open-source community in order to get at the point in which it is today.
Are you currently contributing to bitcoin-core or other crypto ecosystem projects for free in your off-time? We’d like to pay you to do it full-time. If interested, DM @SqCrypto, and follow for updates on our progress. Thank you!
In his opinion, this initiative is a way to get back and help the community to achieve its massive goal of a “more accessible global financial system for the internet.”
Why add a designer into the mix? I believe this is an underfunded area in the crypto ecosystem. Great design will help more people access this technology faster and better. And we want to see more work to educate, like this: https://t.co/3hBdEDLk3e
