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 is “moneyball” and who describes himself as a “PM working to improve bitcoin,” is as pumped as Dorsey’s company, saying in a tweet:
Jack Dorsey just let crypto Twitter know that he was thinking about bitcoin, tweeting an image of “historical bitcoin transactions,” which invigorated crypto Twitter. And while the crypto division is for Dorsey’s other company, Square, clearly he has a fondness for the community.
Meanwhile, Square Crypto’s first hire went over well in crypto land. Among the responses, Bitwise CEO Hunter Horsley congratulated Square Crypto.
