As an independent artist, I want to stay truly connected to my fans and give them the opportunity to support my music.
That’s why, in 2014 I created Tatiana Coin, the first musical artist coin and the alpha for the concept of artist coins. I always knew I wanted to do music, ever since I was a little girl. I also realized early on the power it had to impact society and change the course of history ala the singer-songwriters of the 60s and 70s. I went on to attend Berklee College of Music, and upon graduation, moved to New York. I immediately started working in the top recording studios, working on my own music, and becoming more involved in activism as well. When I found out about bitcoin, everything came together for me — it was a way to let people support the true, authentic work I wanted to make, and take a principled stand for a new form of currency.
Bitcoin was something that could help equalize the playing field worldwide. It was strengthened by its peer to peer network. That meant no centralized point of failure, which means no boss screwing it up or rigging the game. This was a currency that had to play by the rules, and wasn’t manipulated by a central bank. It’s network is a public ledger that could store all kinds of information, such as property rights, digital rights, smart contracts, payments, and more. This allowed for greater speed and transparency. It provided virtually free access to this global currency to anyone who had a cell phone or an internet connection, even in the most remote parts of the world!
