NFT platform HeyLayer has partnered with the Stacks Foundation to host an event in the vSpace Metaverse to celebrate International Women’s Day.
The “HerNFT” event will feature the work of over 30 female non-fungible token (NFT) artists, including Goldy Succi, Mother Pop, Kaylee Hawley and others. Their work on the Stacks blockchain will be exhibited in a virtual gallery specially organized for this event which begins on March 8.
Event attendees will be able to purchase NFTs on the HeyLayer marketplace. 2.5% of sales from the event will be donated to the Just Love Film Academy charity for Ibero-American filmmakers.
HeyLayer CEO and Co-Founder Alla Koretsky said, “We created HerNFT as a way to tap into more feminine energy and celebrate and showcase more female perspectives within NFT art. ” She added:
“These women all have something to say and when it comes to our #BreaktheBias theme, art can be a very powerful way to get that message across.”
PotionLabs NFT auction to fund the project and the community
Potion Protocol developers, PotionLabs, launched the Potion Unlock NFT auction to help it complete “aggressive decentralization” by maximizing community involvement and bypassing the pitfalls of traditional project launches.
Funds raised from the auction of 10,000 unique NFTs will support the growth of the community and the Potion Protocol project in the future. It will be a Dutch auction that will take place from March 14 to 24.
Each NFT in the collection contains a small piece of Potion Protocol code. When all lines of code are combined, the code will become part of the public domain. This means that community members are encouraged to work closely together to release code rather than working against each other.
Major early investors in Potion Protocol include Polychain, Pantera, MetaCartel, Compound’s Robert Leshner and others. Potion Unlocked is a new project-casting mechanic that debuted on February 22 from Potion Labs.
