Tatiana Moroz unites modern technology & economics with the classic social awareness & influence of songwriters of the 60s and 70s. Her inspiring album “Keep The Faith” was released in 2017 and funded via cryptocurrency.
Unveiling the Federal Reserve’s Dark Secrets:
Tatiana’s journey into the world of cryptocurrency began with a deep-rooted frustration with the financial system. As she delved into researching the Federal Reserve, she discovered a web of deception and control that opened her eyes to the true nature of money. Inspired by the artists of the 60s who used music to convey powerful messages, Tatiana recognized the potential for cryptocurrency to break free from the clutches of centralized control. She saw an opportunity to give back the power to the people and create a system that empowers artists and individuals alike.
The Birth of Tatiana Coin: A Revolution in Music and Finance:
In 2014, Tatiana collaborated with visionaries in the Bitcoin community to create Tatiana Coin, the world’s first artist cryptocurrency. This groundbreaking project, built on top of Bitcoin using the counterparty protocol, allowed fans to directly support Tatiana’s music and revolutionized the relationship between artists and their audience. By circumventing traditional gatekeepers in the music industry, Tatiana empowered herself and other artists to maintain long-term connections with their fans and retain control over their creative work. The advent of Tatiana Coin was a profound milestone in the fusion of music and finance.
The Subversion of Music and the Need for Change:
Tatiana highlights the co-opted nature of the music industry, where artists are often constrained by commercial interests and unable to use their art as a catalyst for cultural and societal change. However, through the decentralized power of blockchain technology, Tatiana envisions a renaissance for music, where artists can once again amplify their voices and advocate for important causes. She recognizes that the fusion of art and technology can shape the future, as music has the unique ability to traverse boundaries and ignite social change

However, her determination and passion for the project fueled her progress. Tatiana’s ability to bridge the gap between artists and the tech community proved invaluable, ensuring that the artist’s perspective remained at the forefront of the development process. Despite facing skepticism and unwarranted criticism, she stayed true to her vision, paving the way for others to follow in her footsteps.
Empowering Women in Finance:
The conversation takes a thought-provoking turn as Tatiana and I discuss the parallels between financial control and gender dynamics. We highlight how both men and women are subject to control when denied access to financial resources. The Federal Reserve’s influence over the economy mirrors the control exerted by some men over women through monetary power. Tatiana’s work in the crypto space serves as a rallying cry for women to reclaim financial agency and transcend the gender-based power imbalances perpetuated by traditional financial systems.
The Frustration of the Music Industry:
Tatiana also shared how her journey began with a realization shared by countless musicians: the music industry’s inherent challenges and lack of sustainability. Even Grammy-winning artists struggled to make a decent living from live gigs, prompting Tatiana to question the status quo. In an industry teeming with competition and ever-dwindling attention spans, differentiating oneself and capturing listeners’ interest proved increasingly difficult.
The Role of AI and NFTs in Direct-to-Fan Engagement:
Seeking a direct connection with her audience, Tatiana explored the potential of AI and NFTs. She envisioned a future where each song could be represented by a unique NFT, allowing fans to own a piece of her musical journey. By utilizing AI-generated artwork and co-creation with fans, she aimed to foster a sense of community and democratize the music experience.
The Making of Love Songs For Idiots:
Tatian shared that collaborating with her producer Will Hensley and drawing inspiration from her personal experiences, Tatiana embarked on a three-day recording session for her album. Love Songs For Idiots became a testament to vulnerability and relatability, showcasing the frustration, comedic aspects, and emotional deficiencies encountered in love. Through her music, Tatiana aimed to create a salve for human suffering and remind listeners that they are not alone in their experiences.
The Fusion of AI and Human Creativity:
To complement her music, Tatiana embarked on a unique visual journey. Incorporating AI-generated artwork, she collaborated with graphic designer Nikki Tiani to meld these pieces with her photographs. The AI tools not only accelerated the artistic process but also enabled artists to generate more work, bridging the gap between creativity and practicality.
Advocacy and Social Change Through Music:
Tatiana’s journey took a poignant turn when she discovered the case of Ross Ulbricht, the creator of the Silk Road. Connecting with Ross’s mother, Lynn, Tatiana delved deeper into the case and the injustices surrounding it. Despite the stigma attached to the Silk Road, Tatiana recognized the importance of advocating for Ross’s freedom. Her album cover features a drawing Ross created while in prison, symbolizing the need for artist coins and the power of cryptocurrency in supporting causes that major labels might shy away from.
At the end I would say, Tatiana’s journey showcases the disruptive potential of blockchain and cryptocurrencies in empowering individuals, especially women, in finance. Her fusion of music and decentralized technologies demonstrates the future of direct fan engagement. Using AI, NFTs, and heartfelt storytelling, she bypasses traditional industry structures to connect deeply with her audience. Moreover, Tatiana’s music advocates for social change, shedding light on unnoticed injustices. Her transformative approach proves that music can catalyze meaningful change in society.
