I believe that Riot Blockchain (RIOT) is an example of such an equity, and that RIOTs risk/reward profile appears compelling.

Digital Investing Tools That Target Retirees

Digital investing, once a playground mostly for younger investors, is no longer just for the young, but also for the young at heart.

For the past decade or so, digital investing has broadly been thought of as a way for Millennials and other investor newbies to access low-cost advice and investment management services.
