(VIANEWS) – Twitter and Square CEO, Jack Dorsey said in July that Decentralized Finance (or DeFi) will be launched by the digital payments firm. Dorsey stated that the project would enable DeFi, non-custodial and permissionless services for Bitcoin.

On Thursday, Ethereum co-creator Vitalik Buterin slammed Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg’s efforts to break digital-asset ground for their firms Square and Facebook.

Buterin told Bloomberg that Bitcoin lacks the capability to fuel such a project since it was primarily meant to be a “house money.”

Buterin stated in a video interview on Thursday that Ethereum has the native capability that allows you to directly place ETH or Ethereum-based assets into smart contracts, where arbitrary circumstances may dictate how those assets are distributed.

According to Ethereum’s founder, Jack Dorsey would then have to develop his mechanism to enforce those rules.

He said that Facebook’s digital currency project Libra was stymied by a great amount of distrust. He claimed that it might be counterproductive for the social media giant’s future crypto-related efforts, like establishing its own blockchain.

Buterin advised Facebook and Square to use existing blockchain networks instead.
