By CCN Markets: Square Crypto, which until now only appeared to exist on social media, is the real deal. It’s been less than a month since Square Crypto announced they were nearing their maiden hire. Now the company made a splash by announcing on Twitter they lassoed Google alum and Silicon Valley angel investor Steve Lee for that distinction. Before the big reveal, Square Crypto teased its followers by claiming to have hired an intern named Gary, who apparently “loves blockchain.” That situation was short-lived, and the team quickly followed that joke up with the truth. Lee, whose Twitter handle

On Feb. 22, bitcoiners rejoiced when the financial banking giant Fidelity was handed the ‘Lightning torch’ as the Lightning Network’s social experiment was passed on to its latest bearer. Then, two days later, the new Lightning torch holder made the decision to exclude passing it on to a cryptocurrency executive from Iran because of U.S. sanctions. After a few words were exchanged between the torch holder and onlooking cryptocurrency supporters, an argument erupted over the debacle. The exclusion showed that a good portion of the community believes it is wrong to censor individuals over arbitrary laws and invisible borders.

Jack Dorsey, the brains behind Twitter and Square, has once again expressed his support for cryptocurrencies. In his most recent interview, Dorsey predicted that Bitcoin will be the only currency used for internet transactions in the coming 5-10 years.
Speaking with British publication The Times, Dorsey said that even with the value slump that Bitcoin has been experiencing for the past couple of months, he sees no discernible long-term problem for the crypto powerhouse. In his view, Bitcoin will not only make a comeback but also seep into the market to the point that it will be usable for facilitating everyday transactions such as buying a pack of cigarettes or a cup of coffee.
Twitter and Square CEO Jack Dorsey recently had some remarkably positive remarks about bitcoin. Predicting the future of finance, he suggested that the “father of cryptocurrencies” is likely to become the world’s only currency within the next 10 years.
Speaking with The Times, Dorsey stated:
The world ultimately will have a single currency. The internet will have a single currency. I personally believe that it will be bitcoin.
Dorsey’s optimism comes at a time when bitcoin and virtual money have been deemed “not that significant” by varying regulators. During Argentina’s recent G20 summit, several panel members stated their belief that it was not necessary to globally regulate cryptocurrencies just yet.
Twitter and Square CEO Jack Dorsey announces that he supports Bitcoin. He believes the cryptocurrency is a long-term path towards greater financial access for all.

Tech giant Microsoft temporarily suspended bitcoin payments and transactions. Microsoft had been the most prominent company to have announced support for the virtual currency’s payment use last year but is now, surprisingly, no longer accepting the flagship cryptocurrency.
