Today, let's take a look at how Square wants to drive bitcoin's mass adoption of open source software. It also includes tests by Bosch with Ethereum and other interesting news in the world of cryptocurrencies.
Square is a large global payments processor based in San Francisco, USA. In a tweet, Square has now announced that they want to work on open source projects. These projects would not only make mass adoption easy, but make it “unstoppable”. The tweet itself was released under the new department name “Square Crypto.”
We are close to making our first hire. So let's set some expectations. True to @ jack's founding tweets, we are building that's not just possible but inevitable.
Our goal is not to make money, but to improve it.

Square is headed by Jack Dorsey, who is also the CEO of Twitter. As early as March of this year, Dorsey had announced Square's plans to recruit staff:
“Square is looking for 3 to 4 crypto engineers and 1 designer to work full-time on open source contributions to the Bitcoin and crypto environment. You can work from anywhere, report directly to me and we can even pay in Bitcoin! Here comes @SqCrypto. “
Square added Bitcoin to their payment app in January 2018. In the first quarter of 2019, the company reported an increase in sales of 72 percent.
The Square app is the # 1 financial app on the App Store, allowing its users to send each other money.
The company Bosch is currently testing solutions based on Ethereum. The goal is to connect machines through smart contracts. This reported the website Decrypt, citing a spokesman for Bosch. At the same time, however, Decrypt explained that Bosch did not say exactly how to use Ethereum and the Smart Contracts.
Ripple and Ripple XRP
Thailand's Siam Commercial Bank (SCB) has indicated future use of Ripple XRP. In response to a question asked via Twitter, the bank responded:
“We'll be using Ripple's blockchain technology, but with regards to [ripple] XRP, please wait for more announcements.”
We want to use Blockchain Technology for ripple but as for XRP, you may have to wait for further announcement.

This should be understood that the bank wants to use the ripple solution xCurrent in the future. A decision in favor of xRapid based on Ripple XRP has apparently not been made.
The latest issue of “The Lite Podcast” has been released. This is an interview with the developer Lisa Neigut. As part of the interview, Neigut presents its classification of Lightning Nodes. In doing so, she uses a framework that she recently presented at New York's “Magical Crypto Conference”.
