and ! Square is hiring 3-4 crypto engineers and 1 designer to work full-time on open source contributions to the bitcoin/crypto ecosystem. Work from anywhere, report directly to me, and we can even pay you in bitcoin! Introducing . Why?

Last week I was considering my hack week project, and asked : β€œwhat is the most impactful thing we could do for the bitcoin community?” His answer was simple: β€œpay people to make the broader crypto ecosystem better.” This resonated with me immediately, so we’re doing it.

This will be Square’s first open source initiative independent of our business objectives. These folks will focus entirely on what’s best for the crypto community and individual economic empowerment, not on Square’s commercial interests. All resulting work will be open and free.

Square has taken a lot from the open source community to get us here. We haven’t given enough back. This is a small way to give back, and one that’s aligned with our broader interests: a more accessible global financial system for the internet.

Why add a designer into the mix? I believe this is an underfunded area in the crypto ecosystem. Great design will help more people access this technology faster and better. And we want to see more work to educate, like this:

I love this technology and community. I’ve found it to be deeply principled, purpose-driven, edgy, and…really weird. Just like the early internet! I’m excited to get to learn more directly.

Are you currently contributing to bitcoin-core or other crypto ecosystem projects for free in your off-time? We’d like to pay you to do it full-time. If interested, DM , and follow for updates on our progress. Thank you!

Counterpoint: It’s a significant ecosystem. 4-5 people (who almost assuredly are already working in this space), will make 0 difference at all. This is Jack’s attempt to pander to people who put β€œcrypto” in their Twitter bios. It worked. Brilliant in that respect.

Just asking. Would you consider investing in projects/companies that support bitcoin core /ux development too?

I'm moderately skeptical on this because you still are, as you said, vested in commercial interests. That being said, until proven guilty, I like this initiative and wish you all the best!

Have to start somewhere. A small team of folks who are already working on projects (doesn’t have to be the same or one project) can have massive impact.
