The follow-up tweet ‘off by 117’ was tweeted after the price of Bitcoin reached a new all-time high and broke the previous record. Due to the timing of the follow-up tweet and the ambiguous tweet by Jack Dorsey, some are of the opinion that the figure he posted is actually a prediction of when Bitcoin will break the previous all-time high price record. Hence, the figure ‘705742’ is said to be Dorsey’s block number prediction regarding how high the price of Bitcoin will rise.

The tweet by the CEO of Square is coming days after he revealed the plan to make Bitcoin mining business more democratic.

Square’s Plans To Make Mining More Accessible

He is of the view that they should continue building openly while collaborating with the community. He also revealed that the mining system being considered will follow the hardware wallet model. He considers decentralized mining operations as being superior to a more centralized mining system. This is because decentralization of the mining process will confer resilience on the Bitcoin network, hence he thinks mining should be more distributed.

An important issue facing the Bitcoin mining industry is the energy usage and the possible environmental effect of Bitcoin mining. Dorsey thinks it’s important to solve the energy problem which he considers a system-level problem that will depend on improvement in silicon, software and integration. Hence, provision of clean and efficient energy will be important for Bitcoin mining and also for other human enterprises.

Jack Dorsey also believes that mining should be made more accessible to everyone, and it can become as simple as plugging a rig to a power source. He thinks the process of mining has become too complex that it discourages people from engaging in it.
