After the death of her son’s father, Marie-Antoinette Tichler was left with the question as to what happens to someone’s digital legacy? That is when the idea of C2Legacy came about. C2Legacy is a digital asset estate and cryptocurrency management platform utilizing blockchain technology. The platform uses C2L tokens to provide a private, immutable, secure, and cost-effective platform for those wishing to pass on their digital legacies.
Marie-Antionette has vast experience in the emerging technology field. Prior to founding C2Legacy, Marie-Antoinette worked within area high schools to provide programs for underserved youth to educate them on new and innovative technologies. She founded the “Growing up Mobile Program”, a mobile educational technology program for youths. This program has been implemented by one of the leading youth outreach organizations.
Do you know what steez is? If so, how do you express your steez?
Yes, ones natural state of being. My steez is loud without me making a sound and bright with no light around. I wake up every day and give my best with good intentions. I live boldly, laugh loud, and love hard. I believe in “saying what you mean and meaning what you say”. I’m often described as too truthful, aggressive, and ambitious and I would agree with all those sentiments.
When you were younger what was your dream occupation?
When I was younger I dreamed of helping people by being a nurse. I also had dreams of winning a gold medal in high jump and 110m hurdles at the summer Olympics.
Who/What inspired you to get into your current field?
My son and daughter are the reasons I’m in the IT field. A decade ago, they received iPhones. During this same time, I became aware of the high of teens dying due to texting and driving which compelled me to create a non-profit TOADD.org. This program educates youth to use technology responsibly. Currently, my son’s adult entrepreneurial business decision to accept cryptocurrency for payment was the catalyst for my current business.
What is one current trend that excites you?
The recognition by ordinary citizens that cryptocurrency is an option for digital wealth. I’m excited that there are so many people curious about blockchain technology and cryptocurrency’s future financial impacts on society. I’m happy to see that more people are now willing to join the crypto revolution.
What would you consider your biggest accomplishment?
Besides founding C2Legacy, a digital asset estate planning company allowing cryptocurrency holder to assign heirs to their digital money, one of my most notable and greatest accomplishments is DeKalb County Georgia’s CEO and County Board granting August 8th as Marie-Antoinette Tichler Day in DeKalb County Georgia. It is an honor due to my service to the community.
What do you think of social media? Has it made an impact on your professional career?
Social Media has single handedly changed the nature of what it means to be “connected” to someone else. Social Media is paving the way for our next evolution in connectedness. My non-profit organization TOADD.org has spent a decade sharing social media awareness with the youth with the hopes of reducing negatives like bullying, suicide, and death while increasing positive technological responsibility.
If you were ever to start again, would you do anything differently?
Anything changed or done over would affect something else, so I wouldn’t change a thing. My life and career are highly fulfilling and there’s nothing about it I’d want to alter.
What do you see for the future?
In the recent future, C2Legacy is launching our Private and Beta Alpha platforms, we’re raising money, making partnerships, confirming a couple TV deals in the works, and setting up our Atlanta Headquarters. We’ve got a few things to keep us busy. In the distant future, to better serve all our clients we’ll be expanding outside of the United States.
What’s one piece of advice you can tell our readers?
“No” is a gift. We someone tells you “No” don’t get offended, listen.
