Baskin is infamous as the subject of a vendetta by notorious zoo owner Joe Exotic, chronicled in the smash hit Netflix documentary Tiger King. Exotic is currently in prison after being found guilty of attempting to murder Baskin. In March his lawyers objected to his former partner Jeff Lowe, also seen in the Netflix series, selling a Tiger King NFT.
In a statement on the Big Cat Rescue website, Baskin said, “I’m investigating crypto currencies because I am concerned about the volume of US dollars that are being printed and distributed with nothing to back them up.”
“Our new $CAT coin is not a currency for investment,” she added, “but rather is a purr-ency of our fans to show their love for the cats.”
