A Collective of Filipino Women Are Crushing It With Uncut
How to use NFTs to engage your community
Krystl Fabella is currently my favorite content creator on Uncut.FM. (Sorry everyone else! Y’all gotta step up your NFT games!)
Not only is she the creator of “Filipina on the Rise,” a podcast and media platform that does a brilliant job of promoting Filipino women excellence to the world ...
Not only is she highlighting stories about Filipina powerhouses in a way that aspiring Filipinas can look up to ...
Not only has she recently stepped boldly into the world of Web3 ...
But she is also the creator of an NFT collection that sold out entirely within 2 days!
Here are some of her NFTs:
Her collection is called “PNYPWR,” which is short for “Pinay Power.” (Pinay is a woman of Filipino origin or descent.)
The collection is so much more than just 30 individual, unique pieces of digital art—created by Kim Ruelo—that celebrate Filipina artists. Token holders can also:
Access the exclusive PNYPWR collective.
Vote on projects of the Rising Filipina Treasury, a fund dedicated to advancing projects that exhibit Filipina excellence.
Participate once a month in a podcast episode.
I really love something that Krystl wrote about this NFT collection: “By joining the PNYPWR, you aren’t just supporting a movement, you are the movement.”
The previous real-world tangible benefits to token holders are why I wanted to highlight Krystl’s NFT collection. It’s exactly the kind of work that I’m excited about Uncut being involved in. Also, it’s such a fun use case that shows how content creators can use NFTs to take their community deeper into the causes and passions they care about.
Krystl was born in the Philippines. At 7, she immigrated to the U.S.
In a recent episode of “The Minted Podcast” (check out the episode on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, or YouTube), she talked about what gave her the spark to become a champion of Filipina stories. She said:
I remember searching one day for stories of Filipino women doing big things out there—successful Filipino women. [I searched] Google, YouTube, and podcasts. And I could not find anything.
What I did find, though, was articles about why Filipino women make great brides or how to mail order Filipino wives.
She felt heartbroken, shocked, and alone. But then she lit up, and told herself, This can’t be what we're all about.
It was then that she decided to make it her mission to find other Filipino women in various industries who are crushing it, then promote those stories to the ends of the earth.
Talk about inspiring!
Be sure to view all of Krystl Fabella’s gorgeous “PNYPWR” collection. Mind you, they’re all sold out! Hopefully she’ll come out with another collection soon!
