Article - How I became a crypto founder, interview with Tavonia


Recommended Posts

November 7, 2022

Tavonia Evans is a self-described ‘mompreneur’ who has founded four businesses, as well as developing the decentralised cryptocurrency Guapcoin that she hopes will empower Black people and Black-owned businesses.

In Evans’ view, people often get caught up in the technical intricacies of how cryptocurrencies function. This, she suggest, can stand in the way of them using it to better their lives. 

“The funny thing is, people don’t know a lot about traditional money, either, and they use it every day,” she says. “The main advantage of cryptocurrency is that it can empower regular people by removing the power structures, giving people more direct access to be able to do business with one another financially. Initially we need to get more comfortable with crypto as money, then we can get more into the technology.”
