What’s up everyone! It’s time for another incredible Discovery of the Day! MSQ recently moved into its Open Beta, meaning you can sign up for a profile and explore all the site has to offer. From Monday to Friday we bring you some of the best projects from across the cryptosphere. Whether it’s NFTs, the Metaverse or Blockchain games, you’ll find it all right here on MSQ! Today we take a look at an NFT project that celebrates some of the most important people in the world—women! And so we are proud to present…Crypto.Chicks!
Women in the World of the Non-Fungible
Humans are a pretty impressive species, but where would we be without the women in our lives? From the male perspective, women fulfill many roles such as mother, wife, daughter, girlfriend, sister and so on. But in reality, women are so much more than their often reductive and limiting gender roles—they are thinkers, creators, athletes, artists, scientists, engineers, humanitarians, philosophers and revolutionaries. Despite their contributions and critical role within society, they are often subject to unfair living and working conditions as well as a host of other forms of mistreatment and abuse.
While much progress has been made, there are still many women who live within oppressive patriarchal structures. Since such constructs receive a sort of immunity under the guise of ‘culture’ and ‘tradition,’ they are, more often that not, nigh indestructible. However, women are harnessing the power of communities and technology to challenge these male-instituted hegemonies and finding innovative ways to provide relief to those who so direly require it.

In the last few months, the NFT space has seen some brilliant women-only collections that showcase some truly astounding art. Moreover, these projects are making real strides in helping empower women all over the world. It goes without saying that we’re ecstatic to dive into detail about another collection that’s making some serious waves and bringing something unique that ultimately changes the NFT space for the better: Crypto.Chicks.
Women-Only NFT Avatar Collections of 2021
Onwards and Upwards!
Crypto.Chicks is the second generation of the Crypto.Chicks 1/1, the OG collection whose historical significance in the NFT space cannot be understated since it is the first all-women PFP collection to be created. Polly, the project’s lead artist, created the collection back in May 2021 after identifying a huge disparity in how women were represented in crypto and NFTs. The project was created to highlight the importance of women in the crypto space and reflects the individuality and uniqueness of each and every woman. As such, it is a collection of 10,000 empowering and unique PFPs on the Ethereum Blockchain.
Crypto.Chicks celebrates women from all backgrounds with different skin colors, hairstyles, fashion senses, makeup, personalities and so on. The female identity is diverse and nuanced, and so Crypto.Chicks does its utmost to ensure that all cultures and identities are represented within their collection.
Beautiful and bold, Crypto.Chicks represents women from all over
Perhaps the most impressive aspect regarding Crypto.Chicks is that it isn’t just another PFP project—it is a piece of history. The long term vision for Crypto.Chicks is to establish a brand that acts as the conduit for traditional retail and fashion companies to enter the metaverse. At present, the team are actively exploring opportunities and partnerships with 3D artists and fashion brands to create co-designed clothing, shoes, accessories and so forth. On top of this, the team are working to build a strong global network in order to host global meetups and events that will bring everyone together.
Crypto.Chicks is also serious about art and culture. As a direct result, they are supporting creatives all over the world by running an art contest with a cash prize of $5,000! In addition, they plan to feature a monthly artist spotlight that will showcase female NFT artists from around the world along with interviews that tell their unique stories and explore their body of work. Very nice!
It should come as no surprise that Crypto.Chicks is an ardent advocate of women’s rights. For this reason, the project supports charities that work to enshrine and protect the rights of women and assist them with improving their socioeconomic circumstances. In due course, Crypto.Chicks will make a generous donation of 5 ETH to a selected charity as nominated by the project’s community. Now that really is worth of praise!
