In February, in the United States, African Americans celebrate Black History Month, a month-long celebration of African American achievements and contributions. Every U.S. president since 1976 has officially recognized February as Black History Month. The United Kingdom and Canada also have similar celebrations recognizing the accomplishments of people of African descent in February.
On Thursday, February 10, employees of Meta (formerly known as Facebook) organized its #SecureTheBag Part 1: Earn Smarter series as part of events marking this year’s celebration of Black History Month. Monet Quarles, also known as the Crypto Duchess, participated as a panelist for the event by Meta. Monet was brought in as a woman of color and female expert in the crypto and NFT space to discuss and describe her crypto and NFT space journey as an investor and digital art collector.
Monet and other panelists were asked to describe the basics of cryptocurrency, blockchain technology, NFTs, how to get started with investing, and what exchanges or platforms to use during the panel discussions. Furthermore, the organizers asked for the panelists’ opinions on the status of most of the crypto and NFT projects that are out there and if they are going to survive the next bear market or plummet. It was an educative and informative session with Monet Quarles and other panelists.

“I would like to make my platform a safe space for women to join the crypto and NFT space,” explained Monet Quarles, The Crypto Duchess. “Finding gems in the cryptocurrency and NFT space is like digging for gold. You have to put in long term effort and research to find projects that are solving a true, real-world problem. Once you find those projects, you will thank yourself due to the inevitable returns from those projects.”
