The Women of Crypto is a collection of 8,888 3-D avatars living on the Ethereum blockchain. 

Women of Crypto is focused on bridging the gender gap and inspiring women to participate in the world of crypto.

So how are they going to bridge the gap with NFTs?

Let’s find out!

Who’s Behind the Women of Crypto NFT?

Amy Matsushima is the founder of Women of Crypto and is completely doxxed. I had the pleasure to meet Amy to learn more about her project personally. 

One of my biggest takeaways from the meeting was how passionate she was about the project. 

I could really tell how much she cared for the cause. 

She is a successful businesswoman in her own right who in various industries she’s had businesses in has sometimes been the only woman in the room.

This is what motivated her to create the Women of Crypto project, so she formed a small doxxed team and created Women of Crypto. 

Who's Behind the Women of Crypto NFT

Manav Golecha is the Head of Marketing and is the only guy on the team. He has a background in marketing and finance, recently working for a VC firm in San Francisco, where he interviewed over 200 startups. 

Manav also founded a California-based jewelry store called Kora Kora, well known in Canada and Brazil. 

Maeli Lopez is the Co-Creative Director for Women of Crypto NFT. She is currently a college senior, but don’t let that fool you. Maeli is one of Amy’s good friends and business partners.

Divya Mootha Surana is the UI/UX Designer for WoC. Divya has worked as a UX designer for Amazon Web ServicesPluma, and Jump Off Campus.

Anne-Marie is responsible for community outreach. She has an interesting background. For four years, she was an Optometrist until making a significant career change in March 2021 to become a web designer and digital producer working for companies like KingsDesign and Sarox.

Most of the team is California-based, but judging by Anne-Marie’s background, she may be located out of the country in Australia.

So the team is doxxed, and the founder Amy is passionate about the project.  If you’re in the project’s Discord, you’ll see her in there a lot to help build the community.

Is the Art Good?

Women of Crypto is a 3-D style avatar project. We’ve recently seen many of these projects that have sold out and done well.

While I’m not a fan of all 3-D style projects, I do like the art behind this one and its purpose.

Here’s how the team describes the art on its website:

With attentiveness to detail, the female avatars have 111 unique physical traits and individual characteristics, accessories, and backgrounds. The Women of Crypto are diverse, yet, one of a kind, so as to digitally represent and celebrate the special traits particular to every single woman of the world.

You can tell the team wanted to differentiate itself with numerous unique attributes. 

Most projects copy traits from blue-chip NFT projects, but Women of Crypto didn’t do that here. As a result, there are many attributes that we haven’t seen before.

One of my favorite sneak peeks they’ve shared on Twitter so far is this Kill Bill version of their NFT.

Everybody knows The Bride from Kill Bill is one of the most powerful women out there. 

I really like when NFT projects find inspiration from outside characters like that. 

We’ve seen projects like Kaiju Kingz do the same by creating a Dragon Ball Z-inspired Shenron-Kaiju. 

They’ve tried to create a few unique pieces, some that have gone better than others. 

For example, they created this Gary Vee one-of-one for their Men of Crypto drop (more on that later), but it’s a bit cringe if I’m being honest.

I think it’s a great idea to create an NFT for influencers to pick up, especially someone at Gary Vee’s level. He’d be a perfect fit for this project because he’s all about inclusivity. 

However, if I were Gary and saw how they made me look, I wouldn’t want to claim the free NFT either. 

How the Women of Crypto NFT Works

The Women of Crypto NFT is more than just lovely art; it’s much bigger than that. They want to put women on the map in the crypto space. 

Here’s how they explain Women of Crypto’s purpose. 

This project is a promise to restlessly work towards the education and empowerment of underrepresented individuals in the world of crypto.

As I mentioned earlier, the team is highly passionate about this cause.

To put their money where their mouth is, Women of Crypto NFT will donate 50% of royalties to two charities that back their cause – Women Who Code and Crypto Chicks.

Outside of supporting a great cause, holders get a few extra benefits.

Community Events

HODLRs of this NFT will have free access to Women of Crypto conventions, where they’ll be able to network and learn from top masterminds in the e-commerce and crypto space.

The two charities they partner with offer classes and support for women in crypto and coding. My guess is they’ll be involved in all community events.

Yes, most NFT projects promise meetups and community events, and most fall through. 

However, I don’t think that’ll be the case here because the entire NFT project empowers women in crypto. 

The project will attract people who want to learn and enhance their abilities. If the community events educate women in the crypto space, they should see a strong turnout.

And they already have a date and location for their first community event, which is rare to have pre-launch.

The first community event will be at the beginning of April 2022 in Los Angeles, California.

Holders can also attend joint events with their charity organizations that they’ll be announcing in the coming weeks.

Men in Crypto

I like the women empowerment purpose behind the project and how it targets a niche community in the NFT space. 

That’s why I was a bit confused when they announced they’ll be dropping a ‘Men in Crypto’ line six weeks after the Women of Crypto drop.

I’ll be honest; I’m not a huge fan of companion drops in general because they almost always (unless you’re BAYC) drop the value of the original NFT. But still, I don’t see how this aligns with their cause.

They haven’t released any teasers for the art outside of the Gary Vee NFT but have this image from their roadmap. 

Men in Crypto

Each Women of Crypto holder will be airdropped a Men in Crypto NFT for free. In addition, holders of both a Man and Woman in Crypto NFT will be able to combine the NFTs, creating a baby.

Baby in Crypto

Baby in Crypto is their third line of airdropped NFTs. The babies are a combination of attributes from the NFTs used to create it. 

When the two digital avatars come together they will harmonize their unique physical characteristics to render their own avatar. This equal blending of two distinctive embodiments is how the next Generation begins. We call this manifestation the “Baby of Crypto.”

They haven’t released much information outside of the snippet on their roadmap. I expect more information to be available post-launch.

Baby in Crypto seems like a way to motivate people to buy into the Men in Crypto NFT drop too. 

App

The app is not on the website, but Amy mentioned that it will be launching in April and will mainly be a platform for women in crypto to learn about the NFT space, network with other women in the space, showcase their NFT project, and it will also have a job board for Web3 projects and startups.

How to Buy the Women of Crypto NFT?

The Women of Crypto NFT is launching February 2nd, 2022, at a mint price of 0.2 ETH.

If you want to buy one of the 8,888 Women of Crypto NFTs, here’s what you need to know.

Whitelist Pre-Sale

There are 2,500 whitelist spots available, and about 1,900 are already taken. Whitelist gives you access to the pre-sale and allows you to mint two Women of Crypto NFTs per wallet.

If you want to get on the whitelist, there are a few different ways you can do it. 

Here’s how you can get whitelisted by grinding in their Discord.

Women in Crypto How to Whitelist

The team is constantly adding new ways to get whitelist access, so check their “how to get whitelist” channel in Discord routinely. 

If you don’t want to grind for a whitelist spot, you can win a spot by chance via Twitter giveaways. 

To increase your chances of winning, it’s best to follow all the team members since they all post giveaways.

Public Sale

If every whitelist member mints two NFTs, there will only be 3,888 Women of Crypto NFTs available for public sale on February 2nd.

Considering how hot the NFT market is, especially with 3-D NFT projects, it will be difficult to mint one during the public sale.

The public mint will be directly on their website.

Secondary Market

If the project sells out quickly and you aren’t fortunate enough to mint one during the pre or public sale, you’ll have to buy one on the secondary market.

My Strategy for the Women of Crypto NFT

The NFT market is booming right now, and most 3-D projects that have launched recently have sold out. 

I think the timing for the Women of Crypto NFT drop couldn’t be better. Even at a high mint price of 0.2 ETH, I expect this project to sell out. 

With the recent dip in crypto, people may not be afraid of a 0.2 ETH mint price.

The team behind the project is doxxed and proven, which I prefer, and they have a great purpose.

That said, I don’t love the long-term plans of Women in Crypto, especially the Men in Crypto companion drop. 

If I can get on the whitelist for the project, I will be minting two. If I don’t, I’ll have to resort to the public sale or secondary market (if I get a reasonable price).

Due to timing and the hyped trends of women-led projects and 3-D art, I think there is an opportunity to make money on this project short-term. 

Anything can happen in the NFT space, and you can never know for sure which projects will do well long term. All you can do is invest in projects you believe in while protecting your capital as much as possible. 

That’s just my opinion. Feel free to disagree. Let me know your thoughts in the comments, and follow me on Twitter.
