- Jack Dorsey was at the Super Bowl.
- He was wearing a T-shirt that said “Satoshi” on it, similar to a Nirvana T-shirt.
- The mysterious Satoshi is said to be the inventor of Bitcoin.
The Super Bowl was filled with celebrities.
Dorsey, the platform’s co-founder and former CEO, was photographed sitting in the stands with Beyoncé and Jay-Z.
The tech mogul’s sartorial choices have garnered just as much attention as his A-list pals (and, yes, the A-list events they’ve attended). That’s because Dorsey is seen wearing a black T-shirt with “Satoshi” written on it in yellow letters.
There are two things to note here.
Satoshi Nakamoto is said to be the inventor of Bitcoin. Little is known about Satoshi, or even whether he is an individual or a collective, but he is credited with writing the original white paper on Bitcoin.
This shirt features the iconic Nirvana smiley face logo and, like Satoshi, has an unknown origin.
Dorsey has been a vocal supporter of Bitcoin for years. 2021, he tweeted. “Bitcoin will change *everything*…for the better.”
He was involved in a prolonged public spat with Vitalik Buterin. Ethereum co-founder, which of the two cryptocurrencies is better?
In June 2022, he and Jay-Z launched Bitcoin Academy. It’s a 12-week free educational course aimed at residents of Marcy House, the Brooklyn public housing complex where Jay-Z grew up.
The two have been spotted together over the years, from the Hamptons to Hawaii. In March 2021, Dorsey’s Square purchased a majority stake in Jay-Z’s Tidal for nearly $300 million.

If you’re looking to get your hands on one of these shirts for yourself, Etsy has your back, as always. However, as of this writing, that item was already in her 15 cart, so if Dorsey is your personal style icon, you’d better hurry.
