Dorsey told attendees at the Consensus blockchain conference in May 2018 that he believes the Internet will one day have a native currency. He said he is not certain which currency it will be, but hopes it turns out to be bitcoin.[3] He repeated this sentiment in an interview on the podcast, "The Joe Rogan Experience" in February 2019.[4] Dorsey has also said that he is interested in integrating bitcoin as a payment option for Square.[5]

In March 2018, Dorsey, along with several investors including Litecoin creator Charlie Lee, donated a total of $2.5 million to Lightning Labs in order to develop the Lightning Network, a scaling solution for bitcoin.[6][7]

In February 2019, Dorsey responded to Twitter user @ThomsonCrypto's question, "which coins/tokons you holding??" Dorsey replied, "I only have bitcoin." When asked how many coins he possessed, he said, "enough."[8]
