"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.

$CAT is currently only offered on rally.io, and is sitting at a value of just under $12 as of Wednesday afternoon.
