About

Deidra McIntyre is the founder of Black People & Cryptocurrency (BPC), a Facebook group launched in September 2017 as a place for members to exchange knowledge, participate in live stream events, and network.

The group has more than 10k members. BPC works to create an entrepreneurial ecosystem supporting black-led crypto/blockchain startup founders linked to HBCU students managing on-campus blockchain programs.


BPC is a Mousebelt University ambassador and has served as a panelist, keynote, and moderator for Black Blockchain Summit, the oldest black-focused blockchain conference in the US.

Lane) high school students. McIntyre also maintains a Quora presence with more than 600k views primarily focused on responses to Kemet (Ancient Egypt) & Kush (Ancient Sudan) queries. In July 2020, McIntyre and peers launched Kemet Nubia Kamp for family learning about the classic Nile Valley Civilizations.
