Twitter is looking into having Bitcoin on its balance sheet
According to Twitter CFO Ned Segal, the social media giant is considering adding Bitcoin to its balance sheet.
Moreover, Segal told CNBC that Twitter was thinking about how its employees could get paid in the cryptocurrency:
We’ve done a lot of the upfront thinking to consider how we might pay employees should they ask to be paid in Bitcoin, how we might pay a vendor if they asked to be paid in BTC and whether we need to have BTC on our balance sheet.
Square was a trailblazer
Twitter embracing Bitcoin would be perfectly logical given that its CEO, Jack Dorsey, is one of the most vocal proponents of the flagship cryptocurrency.
Back in October, Square, another company spearheaded by the billionaire, invested $50 million into Bitcoin, becoming the first major public company to make such a move.
Tesla’s recent $1.5 billion Bitcoin purchase is expected to embolden more corporations to add the cryptocurrency to their balance sheets.
