Her first foray into the rental market was advertising her landlord’s property on Airbnb. She decided to make the rental cannabis-themed, decorating it with ganja leaves and providing visitors a free joint on arrival. 

But, she said, “it was kind of a little rowdy.” Out-of-town visitors were getting robbed in the neighborhood, and there were parties with strippers that disturbed the locals. Ultimately, she decided to close it down.  

Levy got into crypto in 2017, after a teenage acquaintance advised her to buy bitcoin. “I’m like, ‘You’re 17.’ Like what the hell, you know? And he’s like, ‘Download Coinbase! Buy bitcoin!’” She used her crypto earnings to buy the North Hollywood property, which once looked like a normal family home, and give it a crypto-themed makeover.

“I wanted it to be extravagant and a little bit tacky, but in a good way,” she said. “You know, like, crypto overload.” The neighbors, she added, were not pleased by the influx of hard-partying crypto bros, another reason she ultimately decided to sell the place. (She said that the city council contacted her about the complaints.) 

As for her next venture? It’s a muffin-delivery company called Buffinz, which she has soft-launched. The selling point is that the pastries are delivered by hunky men in branded sleeveless tops. 

“You know, a Mother’s Day delivery of flowers is cool,” she said, “but imagine a hot guy bringing you a muffin. That would be fun!”
