Jack Dorsey’s Twitter exit sparks speculation of full-time Bitcoin role
Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey announced on Monday that hes resigning his position at the company, sparking rumors of moving into a dedicated crypto role.
In a resignation letter posted on the social media platform, Dorsey spoke about the limitations of founder-led companies, saying he believes such setups are severely limiting and risky, in the sense, they are a single point of failure.
He also mentioned key personnel in Parag Agrawal and Bret Taylor, which he said hes confident can lead Twitter in the right direction for future growth and success, making his resignation all the more tenable.
I want you to all know that this was my decision and I own it. It was a tough one for me, of course. I love this service and company…and all of you so very much. Im really sad…yet really happy.
…I know well prove this was the right move.
With that in mind, whats next for Dorsey？Dorsey‘s pro-crypto outlook
Speaking at the Bitcoin Conference in Miami in June, Dorsey said he’d be working on Bitcoin if it wasnt for Square or Twitter. Although, he also said both companies have “a role to play,” as far as crypto adoption is concerned.
“If I were not at Square or Twitter Id be working on bitcoin.”
And under Dorseys leadership, both companies are known as pro-crypto. For example, September saw Twitter introduce its “Tips” feature enabling users to tip content creators in crypto.
Also, Squares Cash App was among the first payment apps to include Bitcoin over four years ago. Earlier this year, the firm said 5% of its total cash was in the leading cryptocurrency.Speculation mounts on what Dorsey will do next
Although Dorsey‘s resignation letter did not mention crypto at all, the top replies to the tweet came from prominent crypto figures. Including Binance’s Changpeng Zhao, who posed the possibility of Dorsey moving on to work full-time in crypto.
“Well done @jack. Welcome to full time crypto？”
While Dogecoin co-founder Billy Markus drew parallels with Dorseys comment on the limitations of founder-led companies, saying Dogecoin only took off after he had left.
dogecoin only truly succeeded when i stopped developing on it
you built something pretty big – it has changed quite a few lives, mine included – without twitter there wouldnt be dogecoin
much respect for your work and your decision
Whereas Bitcoin-bull Anthony Pompliano gave a more subdued, less leading response by saying hes excited to see what Dorsey does next.
