LaToya also known as the Bitcoin Queen ®, lives in New York, but is originally from St.Louis where she attended The Art Institute of St.Louis. LaToya got started in art, back in 2012, and became heavily involved in crypto since 2014, leading to her current moniker, Bitcoin Queen ®, which is trademarked to her. “I absolutely love the fact that art & crypto, are now connected through NFTs,” exclaims Bitcoin Queen ®. NFTs are short for “non-fungible tokens,” which is a fancy way of saying they are digital certificates of authenticity that allow for intangible collectibles like digital art to be sold and traded. Although virtual items can be copied and distributed instantly these days, NFTs give buyers ownership of whatever digital items they purchase, creating a sense of exclusivity.
NFTs and crypto currencies have made their way into the music industry, and artists are figuring out creative ways to operate with the technology. Artists like Lil Baby, 2 Chainz, Soulja Boy, Snoop Dogg, Meek Mill, Megan Thee Stallion, Lil Yachty, Akon, Logic, Nas, 50 Cent and more, have got involved with this fast growing technology. So it comes as no surprise that independent artists such as LaToya aka Bitcoin Queen ® seek to capitalize on its promise too.
