Mariah Carey Collabs With Cryptocurrency Platform Gemini To Support Black Girls CODE

The crypto space just received a huge nudge from one of the most prominent artists in history.

Mariah Carey will be teaming up with cryptocurrency platform Gemini — founded by Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss — in an effort to bolster financial empowerment for women, Rolling Stone reports.

The Winklevoss founders felt convicted to work with the “We Belong Together” singer due to her global influence and peaking activity in financial instruments. In a video posted to Mariah Carey’s social platforms, she credits Gemini’s free educational resources such as Crytopedia, for her now acquired knowledge regarding better investment practices using cryptocurrency. 

To encourage her fans to tap in, the global star will be gifting fans $20 in the form of bitcoin when users sign up with the code “MARIAH.” A portion of the trades will be allocated toward Black Girls CODE, a nonprofit on a mission to train one million Black girls on coding to increase their involvement in the digital arena by 2040, AfroTech previously reported.

Despite Mariah Carey’s estimated $320 million net worth, she wants to remind interested prospects that one does not have to be rich to step your foot into the digital mining pool. According to Rolling Stone, a Gemini representative revealed that it’s a “myth that you need to buy a whole Bitcoin.” In alignment with that, Carey shares that with just $5, users will be able to invest with Gemini.

Gemini has clearly received a stamp of approval from the Hollywood mogul, and the hope is that users will feel at ease through their educational tools as they tap into a new financial venture.

“It’s great to see Mariah and other celebrities discover bitcoin as an investment and hedge against inflation,” Tyler Winklevoss said, according to Rolling Stone. “Cryptos like Bitcoin and Ether were two of the best-performing assets of the last decade. Our goal at Gemini is to help educate you on the promise of crypto and make it simple, easy, and safe for you to engage in this new asset class.”
