Square is building a new business to help bitcoin developers build financial services products, CEO Jack Dorsey said Thursday.

Dorsey, who is also CEO of Twitter, said that the new business was called TBD, although he didn’t clarify whether this meant he was still thinking of a name.

Square executives said in June that the company was planning to build a hardware cryptocurrency wallet and software service with the intent of making bitcoin “more mainstream.”
