Jack Dorsey has been busy in the cryptocurrency world as he and Jay-Z launched a Bitcoin development fund worth more than $23 million last month.
The project will initially be focused on Bitcoin development in Africa and India. The two businessmen have put 500 Bitcoin, which is worth $23.6 million, into the endowment fund. According to Jack Dorsey, the fund will act as a blind irrevocable trust. Because of that, Jack Dorsey and Jay-Z won’t provide any direction on how the team is run. Jack Dorsey also shared in his tweet that they are currently looking for 3 board members.
