Jack Dorsey's open-source Bitcoin initiative, Square Crypto, brings on a former Google project manager as its first hire.

Jack Dorsey launched Square Crypto this March as an open-source project to improve the Bitcoin and cryptocurrency ecosystem "Independent" of his two companies, Twitter and Square.

Square Crypto will hire up to five people to work on the project: four developers and one designer, according to Dorsey.

Our goal isn't to make money, but to improve it.

Within the hour, Square Crypto announced that it made its first hire.

Steve Lee, a former Google product manager and angel investor will be joining the team.

Lee worked as a volunteer project manager for Bitcoin Core for over a year.

Steve is an angel investor, startup advisor, and former Director at Google.

He is also a volunteer PM helping to drive bitcoin adoption through open-source development, UX, and storytelling.

It will be curious to see what Square Crypto's first contributions are to the cryptocurrency ecosystem.
