Juneteenth is a time for celebration, but it’s also an opportunity to talk about the challenges that Black and Brown communities continue to face and what we can do to take these challenges head-on.  The crypto space presents an incredible opportunity for growth and financial security for minorities who are often left out of the mainstream financial conversations. Cleve Mesidor and I discuss all this and more in today’s episode. This week, episode 162 of the Tech Intersect™ Podcast is a spotlight replay about Juneteenth, Crypto, and the Future of Financial Freedom.
