Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey had an interesting two-hour interview with Joe Rogan for Rogan’s popular podcast the “Joe Rogan Experience”. During the podcast, amongst other things, Dorsey talked about the future of the Internet, and Bitcoin.
It seems that Jack Dorsey, the CEO of both Twitter and Square, became a Bitcoin fan after Square, a very popular cash app, launched Bitcoin capabilities on the app. Nowadays, Dorsey personally believes that BTC will become the Internet’s single currency.
In an in-depth two hour interview published on Saturday, Joe Rogan and Jack Dorsey talked about Bitcoin. Dorsey got the crypto community excited after making some bullish remarks about Bitcoin in front of hundreds of thousands of listeners.
Jack Dorsey started by saying about Bitcoin:
“I believe the Internet will have a native currency and I don’t know if it’s Bitcoin. I think it will be Bitcoin given all the tests it has been through and the principles behind it, how it was created. It was something that was born on the Internet, was developed on the Internet, was tested on the Internet, [and] it is of the Internet.”
About integrating Bitcoin in the Cash App Dorsey said:
“The reason we enabled the purchasing of bitcoin within the Cash App is we wanted to learn about the technology and we wanted to put ourselves out there and take some risks.”
“We’re the first publicly traded company to actually offer it as a service. We’re the first publicly traded company to talk to the SEC about Bitcoin and what that means, and it made us uncomfortable. We had to really understand what was going on. And that was critical and important.”
Talking about a cryptocurrency becoming a global currency Dorsey mentioned:
“We would love to see something become a global currency. It enables more access. It allows us to serve more people. It allows us to move much faster around the world. We thought we were going to start with how you can use it transactionally, but we noticed that people were treating it more like an asset, like a virtual gold, and we wanted to just make that easy, just the simplest way to buy and sell bitcoin.”
Many people within the crypto community were very pleased with Dorsey’s decision to talk about Bitcoin and the positive notes that he shared about the cryptocurrency.
After the publication of the podcast, Changpeng Zhao, the Founderand CEO of Binance, tweeted that one of the reasons why he likes Jack is his pushing of cryptocurrencies, along with the fact that “he doesn’t accept credit cards yet.”
