Jack Dorsey announced Tuesday that he is mining Bitcoin, using a third-party service that hosts the equipment necessary for him to help secure the network and compete for its rewards.

First surfacing in reply to a tweet, he revealed he has signed up for Compass Mining, a startup that is seeking to broaden participation in Bitcoin mining, disrupting an industry now dominated by large data centers.

“As a Bitcoin enthusiast for years I can’t believe it’s taken me this, long but I’ve finally pivoted my business to get into the mining space thanks to @compass_mining. I couldn’t be more excited, and can’t wait until Feb when they fire the first one up.”
