Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey has named three Nigerians to the leading body of the Bitcoin (BTrust) trust fund.

Dorsey, who retired as Twitter CEO in late November, came up with the Bitcoin trust fund in collaboration with American hip-jump star Jay Z.

Announcing the leaders of the Bitcoin trust fund on Wednesday, Dorsey tweeted, “I’m so grateful for you all and so inspired.”

The Nigerians selected into the Bitcoin trust fund are Abubakar Nur Khalil, Obi Nwosu, Ojoma Ochai, and South African, Carla Kirk-Cohen. Each of the four has attempted to advance bitcoin improvement efforts across Africa. Dorsey said a group selected the four developers from a pool of 7,000 candidates.


Ojoma Ochai is the Director of Programmes at British Council, Nigeria with over 10 years experience directing programmes in arts and education.

“They’ll now work towards defining the operating principles as they think about how to best distribute the 500 bitcoin towards development efforts,” Dorsey tweeted.
