Former Chief Executive Officer, Twitter, Jack Dorsey, is set to start providing services to the crypto market.

Naija News understands that the American technological entrepreneur had complained last year October of how difficult it is for individuals to deal with bitcoin mining.

Reports made available on Thursday confirmed that Dorsey has decided to go into the business of mining bitcoin through its payment startup, Block, as the firm plans to make mining more accessible to interested individuals.

The tech expert had observed that there is limited access to bitcoin mining and as a result, there wasn’t enough incentive for individuals to overcome the complexity.

Naija News understands that Dorsey’s payment company Square will now be providing mining essentials to bitcoin miners.

Block’s general manager for hardware, Thomas Templeton disclosed this yesterday in a series of tweets on the microblogging platform.

He explained that Block will henceforth provide solutions to the complexity from buying, to set up, to maintenance, to mining.

Block is prepared to build ASIC miner, the hardware used for mining digital currency, as Templeton said the current system used was besieged by various problems.

Templeton’s confirmation on Twitter read: “Common issues we’ve heard with current systems are around heat dissipation and dust. They also become non-functional almost every day, which requires a time-consuming reboot. We want to build something that just works.”

“They’re also very noisy, which makes them too loud for home use,” the general manager of the payment startup stated three months after Dorsey said, “Mining needs to be more distributed to increase access.”
