- Following the recent surge in chatter around World of Women NFT and its rise, talent manager and tech investor Guy Oseary has signed the NFT project for representation.
- The signing will help WoW explore opportunities in film, music, gaming, licensing pacts, amongst others.
- Following the announcement, World of Women took the number one spot fn top NFTs on OpenSea.
Following the recent buzz surrounding women-led crypto with much of social media chatter around World of Women (WoW) NFT, veteran talent manager and tech investor Guy Oseary announced on January 12 the signing of the project for representation.
According to a Variety exclusive, the signing “will see WoW explore opportunities in film, television, music, gaming and consumer products, among other categories, as well as licensing pacts.”
Oseary will be managing the project in partnership with DCA cofounders Aaron Berndtson and Eben Smith. With the signing, the first on WoW’s agenda is bringing decentralised licensing rights to its community, giving buyers full ownership and IP rights of their WoW, although the project will retain a ‘master’ licensing right over all 10,000 works of art in the WoW NFT collection.
This mirrors the model of Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC), which Oseary started representing in October last year.

Speaking to Variety, WoW creator Yam Karkai said: “I could not be more excited to start 2022 with this new chapter… Everything we do begins and ends with our wonderfully supportive community and we’re so excited to bring the WoW collective to another level with Guy’s help, starting with the fully decentralized licensing rights.”
“Even though NFT’s have become a multi-billion dollar business in 2021 for the artist community, females were a mere five percent of that,” Oseary added. “Yam and the World of Women team are leading the way to change that narrative.”
The buzz surrounding WoW has created a ripple effect on other women-led NFT projects such as Boss Beauties, Women and Weapons, and Women Rise, which have all been gaining traction.
Since the announcement, World of Women climbed to the number one spot of top NFTs on OpenSea, before descending to number five as of this writing.
