Not new to the world of startups, Tavonia founded Guapcoin and made the transition into the world of Blockchain in 2016 as a result of identifying Cryptocurrency as a tool that could stimulate economic growth and freedom within the Black community. She is one of the first Black woman heralded as being the founder and lead engineer in developing a coin with such a mission within the Black community.
