What is World of Women (WoW)?
First introduced to the world through the World of Women NFT collection in July 2021, the project is today one of the main diversity leaders in the entire web3 industry.
In addition to leading trending PFP NFTs and female activity in the space, it rose to the position of blue-chip NFT. That means it is considered a stable investment within the industry, well-recognized by successful work and partnerships.

What are NFTs?
If you’re feeling a bit lost and don’t really get what NFTs are, you should read our complete guide What are Non-Fungible Tokens, or NFTs?
But to continue, know that the acronym NFT stands for non-fungible token, which basically means that they are unique digital assets backed by blockchain technology. Whether they are images, videos, music, contracts, game items, event tickets, and so on.
If that’s not enough, it might be interesting to know that the NFTs industry exploded and had its first bull market in 2021.
Celebrities and brands like Snoop Dogg, Paris Hilton, Justin Bieber, McLaren, Gucci, and Prada, have invested in these tokens.
Who created the WoW project?
One cannot talk about World of Women without praising Yam Karkai, the talented artist behind these NFTs. Having first joined the NFT world in early 2021, Yam quickly noticed the need to increase women’s representation in this fast-growing space.
She is now considered to be one of the most influential NFT artists and has always shown great support to the work of new talents.

Immerse yourself in the World of Women community through their NFT collections.
World of Women NFT Collection
The project’s first collection was also revolutionary when it came to NFTs in general. Until then, there was little female representation not only with NFTs but in the entire web3 community.
This collection was vital in bringing women to the top positions in an emerging area of technology that is one of the main gateways to blockchain industries.
As you can see in the DappRadar NFT Collection Explorer, the World of Women collection has 10,000 unique representations of women of all types.
It is among the top 20 NFT collections on the Ethereum network with a total sales volume of over $222 million.
World of Women Galaxy NFT Collection
The second collection created by the team was World of Women Galaxy, launched in March 2022. There are 22,222 NFTs that represent a mutation of the original collection in an intergalactic environment.
The record-selling WoWG NFTs give more people the chance to join the WoW community and bring a whole new concept to the brand. In addition to the generative NFTs, there are sixteen special hand-drawn tokens with special roles in the narrative.
World of Women Partnerships
In its bombastic first year of life, World of Women has already closed partnerships with some of the biggest brands, on and off the web3. Get to know some of them below.
World of Women & Billboard
In February 2022, World of Women and the American music magazine Billboard announced a collab to celebrate women in music. Yam illustrated three magazine covers of some of the greatest singers in pop music, Madonna, Mariah Carey, and Christina Aguilera.
This announcement once again led to the demand for WoW NFTs to increase, and to make the NFT hype more debated in common society, something essential for web3 adoption.
World of Women in the Metaverse
As for partnerships with other large web3 projects, World of Women also spares no effort. In 2022, it announced a partnership with the metaverse game The Sandbox. There, you can use your WoW NFTs as Avatars, visit the WoW tower, and much more.
Furthermore, you’ll also be able to use your WoW in Yuga Labs’ long-awaited metaverse The Otherside. In this virtual world, World of Women NFTs will be able to navigate among other famous blue-chip NFTs such as those in the Bored Ape Yacht Club collection.

1. Set up your web3 wallet and get some crypto
If you’re just starting to get into the world of NFTs, welcome! You will, first of all, need a virtual wallet to store your NFTs. And of course, to buy NFTs, you will need cryptocurrencies, which will also stay in your wallet.
Watch our video What is a Crypto Wallet? for a quick guide on how to connect and prepare your wallet to buy a World of Women NFT.
2. Decide which marketplace you want to use
Once your wallet is created, your seed phrase safe, and your crypto prepared, it’s time to go shopping! But where?
In the case of the World of Women NFTs, the only official channels advertised by the company are the marketplaces OpenSea, LooksRare, Nifty, Rarible, Foundation, and X.xyz.
All are highly respected within the NFT space, so the choice between them is completely personal. Just be careful to verify that the website where you are buying an NFT is legit and not a scam.
3. Find the WoW avatar that speaks to you
The next step is perhaps the most fun. It’s time to choose your World of Women NFT. As the collections indicate, they represent all women in their different beauties. You can choose one that looks like you, one that you admire, or simply one that you think is cool.
So it’s a matter of knowing what you want to do with your NFT. Will it save value? Sell it later at a higher price? Or just use it as a new profile picture on Twitter? Whatever your goal, it’s good to keep it in mind when choosing your NFT.
Since all NFTs in the World of Women collections have already been minted, prices vary greatly depending on demand and supply and the type of sale. While the first WoW NFTs were minted at a fixed cost of 0.07 ETH, the floor price at the time of writing was 3.25 ETH.
Moreover, different NFTs have different and rare characteristics, which also weigh on the final value.
4. Double-check authenticity
A very important and easily overlooked step at the time of purchase is the verification of its legitimacy. There are hundreds of scams out there maliciously using the World of Women name to sell fake NFTs or steal your seed phrase. Always make sure you are using the official project portal or platform.
5. Finish the purchase and keep your woman safe
If everything is okay so far, just go ahead and confirm your purchase. Your new World of Women NFT will be safe and sound in your web3 wallet. Then it’s time to enjoy the WoW community.
How can I sell my World of Women NFTs?
If you want to trade or sell your World of Women assets, the process is even simpler than buying. As you already have the NFTs in hand, just choose the platforms where you want to list them for sale and follow the respective steps.
You can, for example, list NFTs for sale by timed auction or with a fixed price. In addition, you can also sell your NFTs on DappRadar.
What’s next for the World of Women project?
As announced in early 2022, the World of Women foundation has big plans ahead. Starting with the launch of the WoW Museum, where other artists can have their work on display, and WoW University, to motivate other women to learn more about the NFT world.
The partnership with Hello Sunshine, Reese Witherspoon’s organization to produce content that celebrates women, also sees the adaptation of World of Women NFTs for movies and TV series soon.
WoW is also adjusting to being completely community-centered and governed by its own DAO, the DAWoW. Members can already vote on the project’s decisions and shape the future of the World of Women brand.
In short, you can expect great things from this inspiring project.
