There has been a move by different organisation and Group to increase the rate of Crypto and Blockchain Adoption among the Black. One of such Group is BPC – Black people and Cryptocurrency.
Black People & Cryptocurrency (BPC) is a 9,600+ member discussion group on Facebook.
Black People & Cryptocurrency (BPC)’s goal is to promote the black community in the crypto space. This was stated in an Article as thus:
“A few of us have collaborated to launch an accelerator for black-led blockchain startups linked to HBCU blockchain labs that we will launch and/or support.”
“The goal is to create a technological entrepreneurial ecosystem providing value to our post-secondary schools through networking, school administrative counsel, and student work-study relations with our blockchain venture owners. We are not a small community.”
“Black startups in the US, Canada, the Caribbean/South & Central America, Europe, and even Africa remain marginalized and underfunded. We can change this with your help.”
“At present the Black People & Cryptocurrency Accelerator is seeking funding to launch our first cohort.”
“We are already affiliated with the first HBCU blockchain lab – Howard University Blockchain Lab. We have several startups ready for the support. Spread the word to your contacts regarding the urgency of investing in our future in what has been called the next industrial revolution.
We have a list of SOME black-led startups in the space. Know them. Network with them. Share their stories. Help us, help them.”
