Twitter co-founder and Block Head Jack Dorsey quietly brought Bitcoin to last night’s celebrity-filled Super Bowl event – though most average viewers may not have noticed.
The tech billionaire was photographed in one of the stadium’s booths surrounded by artists like Jay-Z and Beyonce. Unlike his more decoratively dressed neighbors, Dorsey sported a simple Nirvana-themed t-shirt, but with the word “Satoshi” written on the top.

Satoshi Nakamoto was the pseudonym used by Bitcoin’s anonymous founder before he vanished from the internet back in 2011. His air of mystery has left many fans of his creation to revere and worship him as a kind of god, with some even erecting statutes in Satoshi’s name.
Dorsey is doubtless one such fan. Since stepping away from Twitter (now called X) in 2022, much of his professional career has pivoted to his payments business, Block, which has increased its focus on building Bitcoin network infrastructure.
In his occasional posts to X, Dorsey uses his platform to promote Bitcoin and Bitcoin-based projects. In November, the founder financially backed OCEAN – the decentralized Bitcoin mining pool that filters out Ordinals transactions.

Jay-Z, the rapper who stood beside Dorsey, has previously collaborated with the tech founder to donate 500 Bitcoin to Core developers.
Dorsey’s Satoshi shirt wasn’t missed by the Bitcoin community on X.
