ArtTacio’s report shows that in the first nine months of 2021, the NFT market has been volatile, creating $3.5 billion in sales of NFT encrypted artworks and collectibles, of which only 16% of NFT artists are women.
Blockchain, cryptocurrency, and other technical fields have men accounted for the majority of men, but NFT, one of the hottest topics this year, accounts for only 16% of women.
This number makes us want to do something for this field, especially the outstanding women in this field.
Today we will introduce 16 famous and influential female NFT artists.
1. Olga Vorobyeva (Vox), the founder of Vox Consulting
Olga is the founder of Vox Consulting, a company that provides consulting for blockchain, DeFi and NFT startups and Web3 venture capital companies. At the same time, she is an international keynote speaker, technology entrepreneur and investor. Her professionalism in conducting business has made Vox Consulting one of the most trusted companies in the industry. Olga is committed to helping technology companies reach the highest level in the industry through business strategy, marketing, communication, positioning, and brand image design. Although there are many well-known NFT consulting companies on the market, so far, no company is founded entirely by women and has such a high level of professionalism. Olga has been a marketing expert in the field of technology start-ups since 2014. Her marketing skills and experience in consulting for start-ups are very rich.
“The biggest misunderstanding of NFTs is that they are limited to visual arts to some extent. In my opinion, NFTs are a brand new, direct-to-consumer business model that is not advertising-oriented. Every technological revolution Will bring 3-4 business models. For example, the Internet has created SaaS and context-sensitive advertising. Blockchain has created two so far: NFT and circular economy/protocol tokens. For the gaming industry, this means The eternal incarnation of games, true ownership, and publisher-independent in-game economies. For the film and music industries, this means new forms of digital ownership and fan acquisition, artist support, and community building.
In addition to the governing body, Olga is highly involved in conferences, forums and trainings in the blockchain community. She supports emerging startups, serves as a mentor for the California startup accelerator-Alchemist, and serves as a mentor for the Algorand Acceleration project in Miami. In her free time, Olga is advocating for the development of women in the field of cryptocurrency. Her latest research shows that the non-obvious problem that prevents women from entering the field of cryptocurrency is the common family account. In short, Olga stands at the forefront of the development of the cryptocurrency and NFT industry every day.
“The NFT market continues to grow. This year, its value will exceed $4.7 billion. The most notable DAOs are those involving NFTs. Millions of people will invest in these digital projects, ranging from BoredApes to sports games or virtual Pet tokens. Spaces like “decentralization” will continue to attract the attention of many users as they may launch their own VR world, establish connections through the “de-core” market, and exchange irreplaceable tokens To other virtual environments.”
Olga hopes to see more NFTs and projects combined with Metaverse next year. She is convinced that GameFi DAO and play-to-earn DAO will explode in 2022, and she is happy to help the new generation of blockchain companies achieve their business goals. The Vox consulting team strives to continue to provide services to such companies and make the cryptocurrency community more convenient and transparent for daily users.
2. Isla Moon, the founder and art creator of MAGI
Isla Moon is a painter and multidimensional creator from New Orleans. She often creates large-scale works so that people can be immersed in stories and images. Isla layered her paintings with photos and digital renderings, and added graphics of moving elements to her paintings. After that, she increased the level of sound and color, trying to immerse the audience in the feelings and stories that her works told with shapes, lines, colors and forms.
Moon’s work is cooperative. She has the ability to allow a group of creators to create multi-dimensional graphic short films. This is the wealth she hopes all creators can get. This is why she and her co-founder Kevin Reddy created MAGI together. The company will support the creation, cooperation and community building of creators around the world. They hope to bring their physical art to the blockchain and create art together.
Whether it is for the artist’s creation or for the environment, Isla’s work has brought a positive impact. Every NFT in MAGI Collections cooperates with influential causes that support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The entire ecosystem connects creators with careers and missions. Using NFT as a carrier allows art to tell the story of changing the world and the impact of climate change.
“I think this is a golden moment in history. I like to call now the Neo-Renaissance. Art has never been uploaded and stored on blockchain technology like it is now. The fusion of art and science has brought us new Sources of income, unique currencies, and the ability to raise funds for global causes and missions. What excites me most is the possibility of changing the world. I believe everyone has this unique potential, that is, their value and currency, and Our ability to connect and inspire our artistic endeavors to make changes, a truly grounded and lasting change, is worth looking forward to.”
Isla Moon is now accepting a new collection-“Evolving Elements”, a MAGI series curated by emerging teams and communities. Each NFT in each series will benefit from tasks related to that element and will address the causes of influence around the world. This series will be displayed on various platforms. The MAGI team hopes to have its own platform as soon as possible. Currently, they are prioritizing the creation of VR galleries and Metaverses to showcase their carefully curated collections of invited community members only. MAGI works with We Care Impact and Logos Capital to work for the environment and humanitarianism of the future. As a visionary artist and event organizer, MAGI will continue to inspire and create artistic influence.

Nesma’s mission is to raise awareness of the world’s most pressing problems while providing inspiring and practical solutions. She believes that change begins with a story, but it requires specific solutions to become a real and sustainable change.
Bensalem is convinced that blockchain and NFT will continue to develop. They are concrete solutions to some of the existing deep flaws we see in the system and economy. They recognize cultural and community-driven values and provide the necessary tools to track and verify ownership, Authenticity and transaction conditions.
Nesma produced and directed a project-“The Stream of Life”, which is an interpretation of the poetry of the famous Bengali poet, philosopher and artist Tagore. A 16mm film film was shot by Deepak Chopra in New York and was conceived in July 2020. At that time, the whole world was struggling to cope with the huge challenge of the new crown epidemic.
Starting from Tagore’s poems, she conceived the film around the three themes of the spiritual symbiosis of movement, nature, nature and humanity. The interpretation and expression of the thoughts of poems are realized through dance, spoken language, music, and visually evoked landscapes at the same time, creating a kind of human internal communication experience. Multiple artists, performers, and storytellers—everyone carefully selected for their artistry, true sensitivity, and belief in the nature of the project—cooperated to create “The Flow of Life.” This film reminds us, Our strength in adversity, our ability to evolve, and our inseparable connection with nature.
“More than just a stage, NFTs are concrete solutions to some of the deep flaws we see in systems and economies. They allow culture and community-driven value, and provide the necessary tools to track and verify ownership, authenticity, and trade.
NFT also provides education around fintech and digital assets to the mass audience in an interesting and attractive way. With the popularity of NFTs, it gradually becomes more directly related to the value they create for the community.
“Through the ownership and source mark on the blockchain, the owner and the artist are protected. The reputation and appreciation of the NFT will only increase, and the artist will continue to earn royalties as the value of the work rises, and the problems of copyright and illegal copying will no longer exist.”

In 2020, Alexandra joined the NFT marketing team of Snark.art (USA) as the head of partnership, responsible for holding the first NFT exhibition of “Organic Growth: Crystal Reef” at the National Hermitage Museum, NFT collection projects, etc.
“Digital art based on file exchange began to develop intensively in the mid-2000s. Artists using new technologies began to think about how to bring digital works to the market, price them and retain their uniqueness and authorship. NFT has provided many artists with a This is the magical possibility of final gains. The cut NFT allows people to invest even a small amount of money to obtain partial ownership of high-value assets. With NFT, you can become a great art collector, regardless of how your collection should be Repair, insurance, transport and hang on the wall. You can put your collection in a digital wallet and manage it in a second with your smartphone.”

Sam liked to laugh and said, “Hi, this is Sam. I accidentally entered the blockchain after a commercial semi-trailer hit me.” This sentence is good because Dymitri Buterin of Block Geeks and the co-founder of Ethereum provided Alyze with smart contract training via email after her car accident. Soon after, she devoted herself to IPFS and NFT technology, and started to provide services for blockchain community solutions in 2015.
“Since the launch of Crypto Kitties, I have been in the NFT industry because I have received training from the co-founders in blockchain. During that time, I saw unlimited possibilities, but in just a few years, a large number of The case study is amazing, we are just beginning to see the full potential of this technology!
For me, the most exciting thing about NFT is not the project itself, but being at the forefront of revolutionary technology and becoming the evolution of the “IRL” standard. This whole process is worth looking forward to. When we use artificial intelligence, AR, VR and holographic technology to explore and build iNFT (Interactive NFT) that has never been seen before, I feel very happy every day. “

Games like Axie Infinity and Sandbox provide utility for digital assets and provide players with an unprecedented economy. Change.

For many years, I have been monetizing my work as an independent publisher, so encryption and NFT are very important. Fitting is an inevitable trend of my career development. I remember experimenting with online currency and micropayments in 2018 and 2019. I mainly used WordPress as a platform. I had to download a supporting wallet to receive these small transactions.

Olyn’s team realized that even though we are still living in a society of exchange, we are only formed after trading in the digital world (the financial system is asymmetrical in information). The company’s vision is to establish a two-way information exchange during transactions, that is, its solution is to embed an asset registration platform (NFT as a service) at the checkout, and the Olympian team identifies and tokenizes assets (in NFT format) ), enabling consumers to obtain ownership when paying. Olyn’s mission is to seamlessly connect individuals, businesses, and economies so that they can thrive in Web 3.0.
“Users build the Internet, and the Internet belongs to the users. Web2 has done a good job in building the front-end experience, increasing user participation in the Internet (closed platform). When we entered Web 3.0, we did not use our IP address for the Internet Service, but use our wallet to serve it. Concepts such as immutability and composability have opened up new possibilities in the digital world. NFT is just the basic core and may be the beginning of a new era of the network.”
Olyn has launched an API. At the end of this month, it will embed its solutions in Shopify and other merchants. Roly Wallet will be launched on the App Store, and owners can record the inventory of their purchased assets and conduct transactions in the future.

Before starting my own company , I have worked in the creative management field for five years and have more than 30 projects in my portfolio. But I have made great strides in supporting the field of digital art, including NFT, which recently experienced unprecedented growth a few years ago. My business partner Olga Simson and I thought of a digital art platform powered by blockchain. In 2020, when the NFT wave has not reached its current momentum, we established V-Art as a virtual exhibition to showcase digital Art allows people to interact with it.”
At present, V-Art is a bridge between the real art and the virtual field, providing an immersive full-dimensional experience, and contact with art anytime, anywhere. The team continuously organizes training and research activities, launches global projects to study virtual art, and publishes in-depth articles on NFT-related topics. Anastasiia is also a spokesperson for several events dedicated to the digitalization of the art industry, and was fortunate to host a guest lecture on the digital art market for Sotheby’s Academy of Art.
Gliebova and her team recently completed Fuelarts’ acceleration plan, an art + technology accelerator based in New York. As of today, V-Art has users in 78 countries around the world. It is rapidly developing into a platform with an ecosystem approach. V-Art products with NFTs are now in beta, but have shown impressive works of art, including Snow Yunxue Fu and Roman Minin.
The next step is to finalize the beta version, introduce a market permission system, add more immersive art projects, and then enter the Metaverse with partners.
“DSL Center, an experimental art + technology space is an important milestone for us. It is located in the center of Kiev, the capital of Ukraine, and hosts a mixed reality exhibition. This initiative is a collaboration between DSL Collection and V-Art and the Institute of Modern Art.

15. Victoria Zavyalova, founder and CEO of V Startup Agency
Victoria is a science journalist with more than ten years of work experience, so she has always been fascinated by the impact of technology on life and creativity, and it extends to the wider world. Five years ago, she co-founded V Startup Agency in New York to help technology companies speak “people’s words” and convey their ideas to the public. Zavyalova devoted himself to some exciting projects at the beginning of the blockchain boom and the mass adoption of cryptocurrencies.
Victoria’s first NFT experience was in 2018, when she and her team helped increase the visibility of the newly launched Arcona X-Reality metaverse. This project specifically integrates the real world and the virtual world by creating an AR layer called “digital land” on the surface of the earth. Currently, it allows creators to place their interactive content-3DNFT, and earn profits remotely.
“All of this was before Facebook declared that they had the term “metauniverse”, everyone started to talk about NFTs at parties casually. A few months ago, I also launched my NFT, inspired by Sasha Cohen’s latest work ” Porat, as an experiment, is just to understand how difficult it is for artists to sell in the digital space and break through all interference.
I believe that NFT and other digital assets can become an integral part of the emerging digital world Metaverse. Facebook, Microsoft and other technology giants have invested so much in this future reality that it is both exciting and worrying. The impact of such a comprehensive and immersive platform is huge, and there are still many unknowns. For example, we don’t know how the metaverse affects the way we think and process information, the way we view reality, the way we consume art and media, and so on.
The trend of NFT has ushered in exponential growth for the art + technology market. I am currently helping Fuelarts, a new art + technology accelerator, to raise awareness of investment opportunities in this market. According to Fuelarts’ research, in the 2020-21 fiscal year, investors invested $380 million in art-focused technology startups. In one year, the industry’s funding reached nearly 60% of its total investment ($640 million) in the past 20 years.”

Virginia is currently launching her NFTree Trust initiative to plant 17 billion trees next year, and at the same time make NFT more valuable to holders through carbon credits.
“Regarding NFTs, what excites me most is that they are an asset class that makes investment less remote for the public. We bring art, music, and gameplay back to prosperity and wealth creation. They are for the non-profit sector. Donors unlock the key to profitability, and at the same time enable collaboration between organizations and artists, creating a framework for the distribution of funds. NFT is an important tool for redistributing wealth to the public.”
What’s next for Virginia Salas Kastilio? NFTree was launched during the Miami Art Week and the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, to plant 17 billion trees each year for the foundation to establish contacts with donors and investors, and to bring more land area to the land trust fund.
