Block wants to make Bitcoin mining easier by building its own

CEO Jack Dorsey said he wants Bitcoin mining to be open and decentralized. The announcement came from a thread of tweets from Block's general manager for hardware, Thomas Templeton. Templeton said the company would work towards making it so that anyone can easily purchase a mining rig. "We want to make mining more distributed and efficient in every way, from buying, to set up, to maintenance, to mining," he wrote. "We're interested because mining goes far beyond creating new bitcoin. We see it as a long-term need for a future that is fully decentralized and permissionless."
