Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey Praises Bitcoin, Calls It ‘Future’ Of Company Security

By Landon Manning

Twitter co-founder and CEO and longtime Bitcoin advocate Jack Dorsey has added to his praise of the cryptocurrency and its underlying blockchain, saying it is the future of security and other protocols on the social media platform in wake of recent hacks.
