Blacture is a new and innovative platform that features healthcare, financial services, job creation, technology, and urban development in Pittsburgh. This was started by Pras Michél and his vision of propelling African-American culture to amplifying the voices of the population. Pittsburgh City Council officially declares May 2nd as Blacture Day as well.
One of the highlighting features of the broad platform is the Blacture Motif, which is essentially a mobile phone that uses blockchain elements along with a monetary incentive program. This phone is set to drop this fall with the ability to connect a debit card for easily transferable finances between friends and family domestically or overseas. The next six months, Blacture will be introducing a series of programs that highlight black education, health, and entertainment.
