As part of our ongoing celebration of Black History Month, we partnered with CapitalG to host a panel of Black leaders driving influential work in the blockchain space. We brought together Yele Bademosi (CEO & Co-Founder of Nestcoin, Founder of Microtraction), Mercedes Bent (Partner at Lightspeed), and Leon Marshall (Global Head of Sales at Genesis, Co-Founder of Crypto@LBS) to discuss trends in the broader web3 space, crypto as an investable asset, democratizing access to economic opportunity, and the potential impact of these systems on Black communities and culture.
