The estate of rapper Ol’ Dirty Bastard is launching a cryptocurrency in name of the former Wu Tang Clan member. The O.D.B. Coin (ODB) will launch on December 1st, while proceeds will be used to fund various fan engagement projects.
The coin will be listed on AltMarket, an exchange where traders can use bitcoin, bitcoin cash, ethereum and TAO. ODB is the first of many more Initial Artist Offerings (IAOs) to come to the exchange. These IAOs will create value for artists, while fans get unique access to shows, tours and exclusive merchandise.
Ol’ Dirty Bastard is best known as one of the founding members of the Wu Tang Clan, a rap group with major success in the early nineties. ODB passed away in 2004 at the age of 35 due to a drug overdose.
