Jack Dorsey Looking for Engineers to Improve the Crypto Ecosystem
  • Jack Dorsey directly reaches out to hire crypto developers
  • He believes it's time to give back to the open-source community
  • Wants Bitcoin to be the world's native currency

Jack Dorsey is the outspoken CEO of Twitter, and financial disrupter, Square (which the parent company for Square Pay and the Cash App). He has long been a proponent of Bitcoin, and has stated that he would like Bitcoin to become the native global, and internet currency. Last week he Tweeted to Square's lead developer, Mike Brock: 

If we harken back to May, Jack Dorsey and Mike Brock spent a week working to make spending Bitcoin from the Cash App (Card), as simple as spending fiat currency. Jack is again intending to make good on pushing Bitcoin to the forefront of payment options for daily, casual consumers and Tweeting a call to action: 

This type of engagement suggests that Jack is not interested in wasting time on this endeavor, seemingly pushing past any bureaucratic hurdles within his own company, and fast-tracking development directly through him. While Dorsey has been consistently supportive of Bitcoin, Square's success has mostly come from enabling small businesses a simple, cost-effective way to accept credit and debit card payments. The integration of Bitcoin into the Square suite of solutions is the next natural step to make, especially in a space developing as quickly as Bitcoin and crypto is.
