'Tiger King' Cat Lady Carole Baskin Has Launched Her Own Cryptocurrency
Whether you viewed her as the heroine or the villain, there's no denying that Carole Baskin stole the show for plenty of Netflix's Tiger King. Since she's one of the cast members who didn't go to prison, she's been having a unique pop culture journey since. And of course, that now means she's getting into crypto.

Yes, Baskin launched her very own cryptocurrency, which has the unfortunate looking title $CAT. In a tweet announcing the coin, she said she was "purring like a bobcat rolling in catnip" after announcing it.
 
"I'm investigating cryptocurrencies because I am concerned about the volume of US dollars that are being printed and distributed with nothing to back them up," she said. "Our new $CAT coin is not a currency for investment but rather is a purr-ency of our fans to show their love for the cats."

In other news, Baskin has explained that she will most certainly not be appearing in Tiger King Season 2.
