Wallace noted that $1,000 invested in Tiger King now will equal $500,000 if the cryptocurrency achieved a market capitalization of $1 billion.

Tiger King season 2 coming.
It’s his official coin but he owns less that 1%.
I am doing my best to let you know now.

He urged investors to buy the cryptocurrency as it has only about 1,500 holders currently and “almost all of them are not planning to sell.”
I genuinely believe $Tking can 100x. Only about 1500 holders right now and almost all of them are not planning to sell. So if you put money in the chances of it going down right now are very small.
Big Tiger King movie and TV show coming too.
Many people may get rich here!

Why It Matters: Tiger King Coin, which claims to be the “official coin of the Tiger King,” was launched on the Ethereum blockchain in May.
The Tiger King Coin website states that the token has been “endorsed by the man himself,” referring to Joe Exotic, the controversial zookeeper and focus of the Tiger King series.
Exotic, whose real name is Joseph Maldonado-Passage, received a 22-year prison sentence last year on counts of animal abuse and murder-for-hire.
Also in May, “Tiger King” star Caroline Baskin announced the launch of a cat-themed cryptocurrency called CAT, which was described as a “fan token.”
Price Action: Tiger King is up more than 23% during the last 24 hours, trading at $0.000003144 at press time.
