The United Nations will celebrate International Women’s Day with Ethereum NFTs

The Ethereum NFT collection for women On March 8—International Women’s Day—Boss Beauties will unveil a one-of-a-kind collection named Boss Beauty Role Models in New York City, which will be the first entire NFT collection ever presented at UN headquarters.

The current floor price—or minimum “Buy Now” price—on OpenSea for the original Boss Beauties NFT collection of 10,000 assets is 2.3 Ethereum, or nearly $7,000 per asset. Based on secondary volume trading sales, the project, which began in September, is currently ranked 123rd on OpenSea’s top NFT collections of all time.

Last year, the United Nations-sponsored a competition called DigitalArt4Climate, in which artists were encouraged to create various climate change-themed NFTs, with the top artworks being presented during the Climate Change Conference in Scotland.

While the Role Models will not be the first NFTs to be displayed by the UN, they will be the first female-focused collection to do so, and will almost certainly get significant attention for works drawn by female artists. According to a November analysis from ArtTactic, an art market analytics firm, female artists accounted for only 5% of all NFT sales from February 2020 to November 2021, despite the fact that women account for 16% of all NFT artists.

On March 8, 1975, the United Nations declared International Women’s Day, with the stated goal of achieving global gender equality by 2030. The United Nations is collaborating with the consulting firm 5th Element Group to organize this year’s event, which will feature the Role Models collection and a day of speeches and panel discussions.
