Jack Dorsey’s open-source Bitcoin initiative makes its first hire

Jack Dorsey’s open-source Bitcoin initiative, Square Crypto, brings on a former Google project manager as its first hire.

Jack Dorsey launched Square Crypto this March as an open-source project to improve the Bitcoin and cryptocurrency ecosystem “independent” of his two companies, Twitter and Square. Square Crypto will hire up to five people to work on the project: four developers and one designer, according to Dorsey.

Within the hour, Square Crypto announced that it made its first hire. Steve Lee, a former Google product manager and angel investor will be joining the team. Lee worked as a volunteer project manager for Bitcoin Core for over a year.

It will be curious to see what Square Crypto’s first contributions are to the cryptocurrency ecosystem.
