Black Blockchain Meet-up Addresses Lack of Diversity in Crypto

It’s a Thursday night in Lower Manhattan’s Financial District. Just about everyone’s heading home for the day on the 13th floor of a high-rise that houses the Teach For America headquarters, but one meeting is just getting started. The group of about 15, mostly black people in their 20s and 30s, is just using the space, making small talk around the conference table before they get to the topic at hand—blockchain.

“The pizza’s on its way,” says Reuben Ogbonna, the lead organizer of Black Blockchain, a group that gathers monthly at the Teach for America office where he works.
