Twitter and Square (SQ) CEO Jack Dorsey is further supporting bitcoin (BTC) with the launch of his own "node" – software that helps validate transactions and blocks on the network.
The node will mean Dorsey has a hand in processing bitcoin transactions and recording them in encrypted "blocks" of data. Nodes are vital to keeping the bitcoin network running.
Dorsey is a noted proponent of bitcoin, having brought bitcoin payments to Square's Cash App, and having launched Square Crypto – a team that supports bitcoin development.
