Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey, is officially running a Bitcoin node according to his latest tweet.
Tweeting the phrase ‘Running Bitcoin’ which was made famous by Hal Finney, the second person to mine Bitcoin in January 2009 after the creator Satoshi Nakamoto, Jack seems to be more determined than ever to push the decentralized finance with a focus on Bitcoin.
A Bitcoin node is software running the Bitcoin blockchain. It stores every transaction ever made on the Bitcoin network and checks whether they are all valid transactions. It also enables someone to create transactions and submit them to the network.
