Education is Power.
RocNation co-founder Shawn “JAY-Z” Carter and Jack Dorsey are partnering to fund The Bitcoin Academy. It’s a program for residents of Marcy Houses, in Brooklyn, New York, where Mr. Carter grew up.
Designed in collaboration with Crypto Blockchain Plug and Black Bitcoin Billionaire, and with
on-the-ground support from Block and the Shawn Carter Foundation, this innovative program aims to educate and empower the community, remove some barriers to access, and enable residents to learn more about Bitcoin specifically and financial wellness in general.
The Bitcoin Academy is currently focused on Marcy Houses, and hopes to expand to other neighborhoods soon. Find out more here.
