In this episode, Amber and Erika are joined by Broke-ish All-Star, Dr. Jared Ball, to discuss the ins and outs of cryptocurrency. Dr. Paul combines his expertise in media literacy with his personal interest in cryptocurrency to show us how clever messaging creates the illusion of a cryptocurrency market inoculated from the racism and inequality that plagues traditional financial markets. But a little deeper diving reveals the inescapable truth that racism, sexism, planning, and wealth are everywhere – even in the crypto world. Listen to get the scoop on whether cryptocurrency is a source of wealth and financial freedom for black people, or just another financial scheme that surpasses promise and pays off.
