Jack Dorsey – CEO of Square
Henceforth, not sure, but this might be the case, Twitter recently announced a dedicated core team to focus and concentrate on crypto and blockchain innovation. But, Twitter CFO Ned Segal has not pushed Dorsey’s crypto support for the platform. As per Wall Street Journal, previously, Segal has commented that cryptocurrencies investment doesn’t make any sense currently.
Square is the third-largest public holder of Bitcoin. It holds nearly 0.5% of its cap in BTC, which comes to around 0.038% of the total supply of the asset, worth nearly $450 million.
Even more, Crypto analysts and Crypto-influencer CryptosRUs believe that Dorsey might even follow Michael Saylor’s footsteps with Square. Jack Dorsey, Twitter bio just reads’[#bitcoin’, is enthralled with crypto. In August Dorsey claimed Bitcoin will unite deeply divided countries, and eventually the currency.

But, Square may give Dorsey the financial platform he needs to realize his crypto-perfect dreams. Hence more, via square, not through Twitter, Dorsey may be able to bet on the future of crypto.
