Square is thinking of rolling out a hardware wallet for bitcoin, CEO Jack Dorsey said in a tweet on Friday.

Dorsey said Square would develop the product "entirely in the open, from software to hardware design, and in collaboration with the community."

The financial services company has been moving aggressively into the crypto space. Square in December began allowing users of its Cash App product to get bitcoin rewards for debit card purchases. The company reported that 3 million customers used bitcoin in transactions last year, and saw a million new bitcoin buyers in January.

"Bitcoin is for everyone," Dorsey said. "It's important to us to build an inclusive product that brings a non-custodial solution to the global market. Much respect to everyone who has gotten us this far. What are the biggest blockers to get a non-custodial solution to the next 100M people?"
