"Crypto obviously means a lot of different things to a lot of different people," Collison added.
Collison's statement comes after the company listed a job post looking for a staff engineer to build the core components that Stripe is needed to "support crypto use cases." The Dublin-based company claimed it was assembling a new cryptocurrency-focused team so that the company can create "crypto-enabled experiences."
