Tavonia Evans is a 47 year old native of New York and “mompreneur” with a 20+ year background in technology. She is a 4x Founder, Engineer, Designer, Data Scientist, and she founded ( and developed ) the decentralized cryptocurrency Guapcoin.

Tavonia’s vision is to use Guapcoin for the economic empowerment of black people and especially black-owned businesses.

She was featured in Glamour Magazine’s May 2018 “Women in Crypto”, CNN, Complex TV, CNBC, Marie Claire, Blavity, Ozy – as well as other media publications for her work in the space. Since 2017, she has been an expert global voice for blockchain, and has spoken on diversity and the impact of blockchain technology in a variety of forums.
