What you need to know: In 2017, Nip signed on with a crypto company looking to do right by people

True to the late Nipsey Hussle’s communal ethos, his foray into crypto sought to teach other people as well. He said that he perceived crypto as “karma” for the banking industry’s “crooked model,” and signed a partnership agreement with cryptocurrency company Follow Coin in August 2017. Follow Coin proclaimed, “Our goal is to lower the barriers of crypto investment markets by providing tools and services that make interacting, handling and trading crypto coins easy.” It doesn’t appear that the service is still active as a crypto company, though we’re sure Nipsey would have still found a way to help make crypto more accessible if he were still here.
