[WATCH] ‘The Internet Wants a Native Currency, and Bitcoin is the Best Manifestation,’ Says Twitter CEO

Jack Dorsey, the Founder and CEO of Twitter, has once again come out and supported the permissionless native currency of Bitcoin.

Jack has referred to Bitcoin as a truly native currency and has compared it to the consensus nature of the internet due to its permissionless nature.

Speaking to Reuters, Jack said:

“I think the Internet wants a currency, and wants a native currency, and I think bitcoin is the best manifestation of that thus and I can’t see that changing given all the people who want the same thing and who want to build it for its potential.

Our job as toolmakers is to make that job easier for people to access, make it easy for people to understand, and most importantly, utilize, and in that we learn how to make it accessible to more people, where it is useful and not useful.”

Dorsey believes that for bitcoin to scale, it needs to fulfil these 2 ideals:

  • Fast – Improve the transaction times and efficiency which also makes it affordable
  • Intuitive – Easily understand the mechanics and make it easily accessible similar to paper cash

In what might be upcoming features on the Square app, one of his other initiatives that has seen incredible success in the sale of bitcoin, Jack mentions the addition of cards and contact lists to make bitcoin more intuitive and acceptable to the masses.

“We have to build bitcoin in such a way that it is as intuitive, as fast, and as efficient as what exists today.” ~ Jack Dorsey, CEO, Twitter

In order to make bitcoin a truly native internet currency, Jack is inviting other crypto firms to join the non-profit ‘Cryptocurrency Open Patent Alliance (COPA) organization, to stop companies from hoarding patents that stifle innovation and adoption in the industry.

The patent library will be accessible to all companies that work in crypto, regardless of whether they have patents or not. The idea is that as the library grows and gathers momentum, crypto and blockchain companies will look to join COPA to access these tech innovations and help increase innovations and adoption in the industry.

There is growing concern that “patent lockup” could stifle innovation and adoption from bitcoin to the most obscure cryptocurrency.

COPA is an industry-wide invitation to the patent equivalent of an open-source community. Its two-pronged approach includes:

  • A pledge that no member will ever assert their patents on foundational cryptocurrency technology, except defensively
  • The creation of a shared patent library that lets members use each other’s patents as needed defensively, giving even small companies a shield with which to protect themselves against patent aggressors
