June 10, 2022

Jack Dorsey and hip hop legend Jay Z are teaming up to launch a bitcoin academy at a public housing complex in Brooklyn where the musician grew up.

The bitcoin academy aims to provide the community with knowledge about how to manage their finances with a focus on Bitcoin.

Jay Z tweeted that the goal is to provide people tools to build independence for themselves and then the community around them.

Jay Z and the former Twitter CEO are long term collaborators when it comes to bitcoin.

The duo invested 500 BTC with an emphasis on developing the cryptocurrency’s popularity in India and Africa.

Dorsey believes that cryptocurrency would eventually replace banks and bring economic opportunity to the developing world.

Jack Dorsey quit Twitter’s board of directors earlier this year to focus on bitcoin.
