In case you didn’t know, Web3 is essentially about paying creators for their online work. That includes music, artwork, events, or even digital fashion. This means that original intellectual property is transformed into NFTs for certification and monetization on a public blockchain, which allows the creators to be compensated directly for what they’ve digitally produced.

Since most of culture is cultivated on the internet now, it’s no surprise there’s a lot of buzz about getting into the web3 scene early before it is widely regulated.

They aren’t alone. Black women are increasingly making their mark in the metaverse, and we’ve rounded up some of the mavens who have launched their own web3 companies.
