Obi is a full time Bitcoin advocate.
His passion for Bitcoin began as the CEO and co-founder of the UK Bitcoin-only Exchange Coinfloor, which he ran for nearly 8 years until it was sold in late 2021.
He continues to support initiatives that advance the Bitcoin ecosystem and make owning and using Bitcoin easy for everyone.
Obi is now a board member for ₿trust, a not-for profit organisation originally conceived by Jack Dorsey and Jay-Z to fund the location, education, and remuneration of Bitcoin developers from untapped parts of the world, starting with Africa.
He also actively supports projects that seek to help people transition away from holding the bulk of their bitcoin on exchanges – a situation that, if not resolved, will become a systemic risk for the Bitcoin ecosystem.
