"Our new $CAT coin is not a currency for investment, but rather is a purr-ency of our fans to show their love for the cats and to reap the benefits of being our most forward-thinking partners in creating a world where all wild cats live free," said Baskin.
These cryptocurrencies provide access to exclusive activities presented by Big Cat Rescue, including access to live virtual chats with Carole Baskin along with discounts and early access to merchandise.
Florida is looking to ease government-enforced COVID-19 restrictions as cases slowly continue to drop and vaccines are administered across the state.
Governor Ron DeSantis, in a press conference on Monday, issued an executive order that immediately suspends all current local COVID-19 restrictions, while also signing a bill that will prohibit local governments from enforcing COVID-19 emergency orders, including mask mandates and social distancing requirements, starting July 1.
On top of the new order, DeSantis also reinforced his ban on "vaccine passports," saying it is unnecessary to be "policing people at this point."
"If you're saying that, you really are saying you don't believe in the vaccines, you don't believe in the data," he said.
The Tampa Bay Times reports the order only prevents local governments from issuing COVID-19 restrictions, meaning local businesses and restaurants may still enforce restrictions such as mask mandates and/or social distancing precautions.
