Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, just days after talking with Joe Rogan about how Twitter on the blockchain might work, last night unleashed a flurry of tweets about cryptocurrency. The most important of several takeaways: Dorsey, also CEO of the payments company Square, appears to believe that bitcoin is the One Crypto To Rule Them All—and he’s doing more than talking about it.
It appears to have started when entrepreneur Matt Odell tweeted to Dorsey: “Yo @jack, You ready to carry the torch? Send me an invoice for 2860000 sats.” A ‘sat’ is a ‘satoshi,’ about 1/100 millionth of a bitcoin. (Note to Odell: use commas for accuracy in long numbers!)
