Buying the PWRFWD Charter Jacket NFT is as easy as buying, well, any other jacket. Here’s how.
In order to achieve our ambitious goals (league expansion, community ownership), we need to bridge the gap between the WNBA community and the web3 community. For many, this will mean purchasing their first NFTs.
We’re building a global community of athletes, fans, and sports leaders who know women’s hoops is the future. This is one of the fastest-growing categories in sports, and we’ll be gasoline on that fire. Ultimately, the PWRFWD community will be a catalyst for league expansion.
So, we’re minting a collection of 1,000 Charter Club Jacket NFTs on 4.29.2022 at 3pm EST (12pm PST). Holding this NFT grants access to unique utility –

At any rate, one thing I’m most proud of with PWRFWD, is the amazing team we have in place. So, I wanted to throw together an abridged version of our own media guide to introduce the team to the world.
