    The promise and peril of crypto for Black investors NPR

Cryptocurrencies have plunged about 56% in value in the past three months. And while many people have lost money, various surveys (here, here, and here) suggest that Black investors in particular may be feeling the fall.

Today on the show: We hear from entrepreneur Samson Williams, law professor Tonya Evans, and Terri Bradford, who researched Black crypto ownership for the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City.
