Happy International Women’s Day!
Here at Wirex, we’re big on gender equality in the crypto industry. In fact, you might have come across our annual Women in Crypto campaign, which focuses on achieving just that.
This International Women’s Day, we want to shine the light on some inspiring women achieving all sorts of unique and interesting things in the world of crypto. To kick things off, let’s meet the top 10 female NFT artists to look out for in 2022!

Designer Blake Katheryn’s dreamlike landscapes were already popular on social media before she decided to collaborate with Paris Hilton on a collection of NFTs last April.
