Dorsey is one of the main promoters of cryptocurrencies and a particular bitcoin enthusiast. On cryptocurrency he has argued that it has the potential to end the world’s problems and “unify” it.

However, far from the social media talk about bitcoin, for which Elon Musk is also known, Dorsey focuses his efforts on Block, a new conglomerate of companies that includes Square, a company of which Dorsey remains its director. executive.

Square is dedicated to processing payments, much in the style of Mastercard and Visa; in 2020 it processed about $ 112 billion dollars. Dorsey is obsessed with the use of blockchain technology, the one behind bitcoin, and believes it could make a difference at Square as a payment platform.

Last December, just days after resigning as CEO of Twitter, Dorsey announced that Square changed its name to Block, a corporate move in the style of the transition from Google to Alphabet or from Facebook to Meta, as Block will be a conglomerate of companies.

Among the companies that are part of Block are, in addition to Square, the high definition music platform Tidal and TBD54566975, a website for developers based on cryptography.
