The Weekly Stack: Celebrating Women in NFTs 💞
Welcome to Gamma's weekly newsletter, where we share all the latest news, alpha, and stories from our community. ❤️ Oh, and Happy International Women's Day!
Celebrating Women’s History Month
It’s International Women’s Day tomorrow, and we’re stoked to highlight some of the amazing women in the Gamma community all month long.
Globally, women are still denied the equitable access to financial services and opportunities that are given to men. At Gamma, we believe that Web3 is all about democratizing financial access and creating an equitable landscape for everyone — and art is a great way to get the message across.
Late last year, our talented community collaborated to create the Peer-to-Peer community collection for gender equity to celebrate their representation of past, present, and future of gender equity. With the contribution of several talented artists, 100% of this collection's mint proceeds were donated to the International Women's Day Charity Alliance. We hope you take the time to check out some of the talented female artists highlighted from this collection and continue to strive towards equity for all.
Keep reading to see some of the recently released collections by female artists showcasing their work on Gamma!

Send Bitcoin to your BNS
The momentum from Bitcoin builders in the Stacks community has been incredibly inspiring, and we’re stoked to see others continuing to build and ship new features. For all you BNS lovers, the recent Hiro Wallet update now allows you to send BTC to a BNS name that has been tied to a Bitcoin address.
To get started, head to btc.us and register your BNS name or connect an existing account.
1. Select "Advanced" -> "TXT" type -> "Add record" -> ✏️
2. Enter "_btc._addr" in "Name" & your desired BTC address in "txt"
3. Select "Save changes" & confirm your transaction
Now, anyone will be able to send you BTC directly to your BNS address. We can’t wait to see how this tool continues to improve!
Learn about NFT Royalties
NFT royalties allow NFT artists and creators to earn from something they produced on a recurring basis, encouraging them to join the NFT space. As their popularity grows, the returns they get on their work also increases.
On Gamma, once your collection is launched through the Gamma Creator Portal, you can manage your collection with the Smart Contract Manager which lets you set royalty percentages and accepted cryptocurrencies for sales on the secondary market.
We promise to always put creators first and support creator royalties. To learn more about how royalties work, read more down below.
A tip for auctions…
Have you entered an auction lately? Here’s a quick tip: If you win an auction, you’ll need to claim your NFT — your NFT will not automatically be transferred.
Featured Artists & Collections 🎨
Stacculents - frenchieboops.btc
Congrats to one of the OG artists on Stacks, frenchieboops, for minting out this massive 10k Stacculents collection! Check it out on the secondary marketplace.
Succulents meet Stacks as Stacculents in this menagerie of 10,000 unique and magical creatures. Hand-crafted and packed full of sunshine, rainbows and attitude, each make a wonderful addition to any garden.
Song to Drawing - deemsart.btc
Check out Song to Drawing, a new collection by Dee who is a rising star in the Gamma community. We see several pieces that are still for sale 👀
For the first month of 2023 I am inspired by MUSIC, so am turning 30 songs into drawings. As in music, these artworks are reflecting loads of emotions, and they are all made with lots of heart and love. I hope you love the journey as much as am loving it, and I hope my artworks inspire and add beauty.
Ataraxia - nickole.btc
Nickole, the isometric digital artist behind major collections like Iso-Friends & BitToons has an actively minting collection inspired by tranquility. Check it out on Gamma now!
Ataraxia is the first collection of 1/1 isometric and orthogonal voxelarts made by Nickole. The word Ataraxia comes from the Greek ἀταραξία and means absence of disturbance, calm, tranquility or unconditional serenity. The affable home is a good place to experience this feeling of tranquility, I hope you feel at home and can find peace every time you see your Ataraxia piece.
