Jack Dorsey’s Square is partnering with the biggest crypto-focused group on Clubhouse, Black Bitcoin Billionaires. The collaboration will render around Operation: Satoshi Millionaire, a project that aims to increase awareness of cryptocurrencies and their adoption. Clubhouse, the audio-only social media platform has become the go-to place for the crypto community. The platform even hosted discussions that included Elon Musk, Kanye West, and Mark Zuckerberg.
Bridging the Gap Between Bitcoin and People of Color
Jack Dorsey’s Square Inc. via its CashApp is partnering with the Black Bitcoin Billionaires’ group organizer, Lamar Wilson, to create Operation: Satoshi Millionaire. The month-long campaign started in February that focused on educating people about Bitcoin particularly among Black communities. Black Bitcoin Billionaires is the biggest crypto-themed group on Clubhouse that includes 17,000 members.
Isaiah Jackson, who hosts Black Bitcoin Billionaires on Clubhouse, commented on the partnership:
“Cash App is a tool that a lot of black Americans use. We wanted ease of use, and to partner with a company that puts their money where their mouth is.”
Jackson is also the author of the popular book “Bitcoin and Black America.” In fact, Dorsey even promoted the book by tweeting about it a year ago.

Creating More Black Bitcoin Billionaires
It was Jackson that first reached out to Dorsey on the possibility of Square partnering with the Black Bitcoin Billionaires group.
“I talked to Jack personally. Then Wilson and I talked to Brian Grassadonia (the co-creator of CashApp) Jack and I have talked a few times before so he loved the idea.”

Wilson has vast experience in building an online community around cryptocurrency. For instance, he even founded the popular Facebook group, Koinda (formerly Wacoinda), which has more than 25,000 members. The group even launched its own cryptocurrency, CJ, dedicated to Madam C.J. Walker, a black entrepreneur who was the first female, a self-made millionaire in America.
