The biggest, best crypto news ever
Dorsey Out, Bitcoin In?
The news that Jack Dorsey is leaving Twitter hit the markets this morning — and nobody really knows what to do. Twitter’s stock went up, then down, and Bitcoin did the same.
In the crypto space, Dorsey has been a big figure for a while — it’s due to Dorsey that Bitcoin tips appeared on Twitter, and his personal Bitcoin stan-dom is broadcast to the world with his “#bitcoin” bio.
Now that he’s leaving Twitter, the question on many people’s lips is — where next, if not to crypto?
There is a lot of focus on something that Dorsey said at Bitcoin 2020 earlier this year — “If I were not at Square or Twitter, I’d be working on Bitcoin.”
That’s pretty clear, right? Good, that’s settled. We can now all look forward to some decentralized Jack Dorsey NFTs in the metaverse coming up.
