In partnership with Dapper Labs, the NFT Collection celebrates the Powerhouse Women in History and benefits female-led organizations.
Agency Enterprise, a leading product and venture studio driven by world-class developers, data scientists, and designers, has partnered with Women of the Metaverse (WOTM) and Dapper Labs to officially launch the first-of-its-kind NFT collection First Ape Wives Club (FAWC).
FAWC, founded by Amanda Archer and Farah Selena, will release an NFT PFP collection of 11,111 unique, rare beauties—an homage to powerhouse women who have shaped the course of modern history. The collection includes a giveback of 5% of the company treasury that will benefit female-led organizations and those supporting female representation and creators. The collection will start official public sales on June 30.
FAWC’s collection will provide new social utility for NFT holders. The team is reinventing access to creative projects in the entertainment industry, which has typically been guarded by gatekeepers. FAWC’s utility will focus on expanding inclusivity in media, and growing their community by providing opportunities to participate in film and television. Recently, FAWC highlighted three members of their community by giving them the ability to shadow the writer/director, producers, and actors on the set of a woman-backed independent feature film.
“We started Women of the Metaverse to make the metaverse more female,” said Amanda Archer, Founder of WOTM. “And these gorgeous Apes — and our awesome creators — will keep building and keep supporting women. We’re so proud to have Agency Enterprise as a partner and build on the Flow blockchain. This collaboration sets the stage for an ecosystem of female creators on Flow.”
FAWC represents modern-day pop culture with neon colours, cheeky expressions and detailed jewels of historical lore. Each of the 11,111 FAWC NFT tokens will be stored as ERC721 tokens, so each one will have unique identities based upon hand-drawn traits by FAWC Artist-in-residence Javeria “Jerry” Shah. FAWC’s roadmap also includes the development of television and film extensions through a partnership with Fandomodo Films, an upcoming game, an exclusive line of jewellery from Phia Broadus, a custom line of cosmetics, and exclusive events, and merchandise in both the Metaverse and real world.
The FAWC collection will drop on the recently launched Token Runners NFT marketplace, a new Agency Enterprise skunkworks company. Token Runners is a white label, fully customizable NFT marketplace that is both chains agnostic and endlessly scalable. Agency Enterprise has selected the Flow blockchain for its first NFT drop because it was designed to create more secure, frictionless and environmentally-friendly blockchain experiences.
“We are thrilled to partner with the First Ape Wives Club and Dapper to bring a utility rich, curated project to Flow, complete with an extraordinary group of ambassadors brought together by the fearless FAWC Founder, Amanda Archer,” said Jevan Fox, Chief Revenue Officer of Agency Enterprise. “Launching on the AE Skunkworks platform, Token Runners, FAWC will have state of the art, bleeding edge technology at their furry, polished, fingertips.”
Dapper Labs’ current studio partners include the NBA, NBPA, WNBA, WNBPA, LaLiga, NFL, NFLPA, Warner Music Group, Ubisoft, Genies and UFC. Flow's reliability, scalability, speed, and high-quality UX are essential factors for establishing the FAWC global NFT marketplace and ecosystem.
