Superstar Mariah Carey has teamed up with cryptocurrency platform Gemini on a partnership that aims to educate and encourage women on investing in cryptocurrency.
Gemini was founded by Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss. It is used to buy, sell, earn and store cryptocurrencies, like bitcoin.
Investors can also use the code “mariah” while on the platform, and a portion of trading fees will be donated to BlackGirlsCode, a non-profit that gives young women of color access to technology and classes on computer programming.
In a video posted on Instagram, Carey credits Gemini’s free courses for her knowledge and skills that helped her invest in cryptocurrency.
“It’s great to see Mariah and other celebrities discover Bitcoin as an investment and hedge against inflation,” Tyler Winklevoss said in a press release. “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.”
