Jack Dorsey Donates $10 Million to Open Sats
Former Twitter head and current chief executive of Block Jack Dorsey has pledged a $10 million donation to a non-profit called Open Sats. The money is slated to be fully, 100 percent put towards a bitcoin-focused social media network.
Jack Dorsey’s History With Bitcoin
Dorsey has long been a bitcoin and crypto advocate. He stated five years ago that he was convinced bitcoin would become the sole currency of the world, and that all other fiat currencies – like the euro, the yen, the U.S. dollar, etc. – would be wiped out. He also (prior to the COVID pandemic) pledged to spend three to six months touring Africa in order to get its people to adopt the ways of bitcoin and blockchain so they could benefit financially and otherwise.
Open Sats‘ Mission
Open Sats is based in Raleigh, North Carolina, and received its non-profit status back in 2021 per data site Charity Navigator. The company started out with less than $200K but this donation from Dorsey is likely going make a huge change for both the company and whatever projects it has on its roster. According to their website their mission is „to support and maintain a sustainable ecosystem of funding for free and open source projects,“ especially those relating do Bitcoin or helping it flourish further.
