Jack Dorsey Announces That He Is Looking For Crypto Engineers

22 Mar 2019

In what will come as great news, Jack Dorsey, the co-founder of Twitter, is looking to hire crypto engineers (yes, that’s a thing. Let’s roll with the times) for his company, Square and he said monthly payments will be made in Bitcoin.#BitcoinTwitter and #CryptoTwitter! 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! Introducing @SqCrypto. Why?— jack (@jack) March 20, 2019In a thread, Dorsey said, “#BitcoinTwitter and #CryptoTwitter! 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! Introducing @SqCrypto. Why?”Explaining the reason behind this decision, Dorsey said, “Last week I was considering my hack week project, and asked @brockm (Mike Brock): “what is the most impactful thing we could do for the bitcoin community?” His answer was simple: “pay people to make the broader crypto ecosystem better.” This resonated with me immediately, so we’re doing it.”Earlier, this month Square was in the news, when Dorsey revealed that he spent $10,000 buying bitcoin. He also revealed what parallels he sees between Bitcoin and Twitter, and about “Stacking Sat Saturday” trend in which users buy $25 worth of Bitcoin every Saturday to highlight the growing adoption of cryptocurrencies. And this was the topic where he indirectly revealed the amount that he might’ve spent in BTC last week.He had said, “I saw that [Stacking Sat Saturday] on Twitter […] I would have participated but I have already exceeded my limit on CashApp. I can’t purchase anymore.”Now, since the maximum weekly purchase limit for Bitcoin on Square-owned Cash app is $ 10,000, hitting the limit means that he had purchased BTC worth $10,000 in last week on Cash app. He also said that he may be able to participate in Stacking Sat Saturday next week as limits are refreshed every week.The Square CEO further said, on Twitter, “Square has taken a lot from the open source community to get us here. We haven’t given enough back. This is a small way to give back, and one that’s aligned with our broader interests: 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.”Liked what you read? Join us on Telegram
