“I love this technology and community:” Square launches a new bitcoin/crypto initiative

Vires in numeris."

In Latin, strength in numbers. That appears to be the motto of a new initiative at Square, the payments company run by Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, as per its fresh Twitter account. Dorsey, who also leads Square, said the firm is hiring to build out the team for Square Crypto, per a string of tweets penned by the executive Wednesday evening. Square Crypto will work towards building out the nascent bitcoin ecosystem, separate from Square’s own business interests in the market.

“Square is hiring 3-4 crypto engineers and 1 designer to work full-time on open source contributions to the bitcoin/crypto ecosystem. Work from anywhere, report directly to me, and we can even pay you in bitcoin,” Dorsey said in a tweet.

Dorsey, one of the most notable bitcoin advocates, added: “I love this technology and community. I’ve found it to be deeply principled, purpose-driven, edgy, and…really weird. Just like the early internet! I’m excited to get to learn more directly.”

Remember when organizations realized they should have a “Business Facebook Account” and an “official” Twitter-branded account?

I echo that sentiment. It’s an incredible time, Yen is skating where the puck will be, rather than following it’s erratic movements up the ice.
