Expansion of Jay-Z and Jack Dorseys Company Aims to Cultivate Bitcoin Talent in Africa


The Birth of Btrust Builders Program: Empowering African Bitcoin (BTC) Talent

Imagine a world where Africa becomes a hub for Bitcoin (BTC) and Lightning development. Thanks to the recent acquisition made by Btrust, a non-profit organization co- established by rapper Jay-Z and Block CEO Jack Dorsey, this vision is now a step closer to reality. Btrust has acquired Qala, a renowned Bitcoin (BTC) talent company, and transformed it into the Btrust Builders Program.

The purpose of this synergistic acquisition is clear – to advance Bitcoin (BTC) development in Africa. Btrust, armed with its financial resources, recognized the need for a structured talent pipeline, which Qala had successfully built. On the other hand, Qala, as a social enterprise, lacked the sustainable resources to accomplish its goals. Previously, funds came from grants provided by organizations like Coinbase Giving and the Human Rights Foundation.

With this acquisition, Qala’s CEO, Femi Longe, and program manager Stephanie Titcombe, will now join Btrust as program leads for the Btrust Builders program. This program will focus on open-source training, inviting senior African software developers to engage in Bitcoin (BTC) and Lightning development.
