Twitter founder Jack Dorsey confirmed that the direction of his Bitcoin (BTC) related business, TBD, has been set.
CEO called out to his followers on Twitter
on August 27, asking for help in building “an open platform to create a decentralized exchange for #Bitcoin …”
That tweet came in response to a lengthy thread that Mike Brock released around the same time. Brock, who leads strategic development for Square’s Cash App, is also a leading figure with TBD. He took to Twitter to reveal the development of the project. Started
There has been a lot of speculation about what TBD is and is not. Over the past few weeks, our team has been determining what needs to be determined.
We believe that Bitcoin will be the native currency of the internet. There are many projects to help make the internet more decentralized. We are solely focused on a robust global monetary system for all. But there are still a few pieces missing in all of this that we think are crucial.
Brock further stated that centralized “on- and off-ramps” to BTC, such as Coinbase and Cash App, have several issues. In addition, he said that centralized services are not evenly distributed around the world. In another tweet, he wrote

Meanwhile, Dorsey also suggested bringing Twitter one step further into the realm of cryptocurrencies. Namely, by integrating Lightning wallets with the social media platform. The CEO issued a suggestive response to another user’s tweet, which claimed that if Twitter accounts could store non-convertible tokens(NFTs), it would benefit Ethereum (ETH) and not Twitter itself. Agreeing, Dorsey then dropped a hint about each Twitter account potentially linking to the Lightning wallet.
