Crypto Mermaid Packing Guide

It’s that time of year again when aesthetically and luxury-minded people come from all over the world to a gorgeous and warm place in December. You may recall that last year Art Basel Miami Beach was abuzz with what turned out to be a bubble of crypto and NFT madness. This year crypto is down, the dust is settling on NFTs making it clearer which ones are actually historical NFTs, and the forecast for Miami this week is warm and sunny. 

 

This year instead of just telling you about all the fun after I’ve had it, we’ve decided to publish a guide to Miami to help you prepare and make the most fun out of the madness.  Crypto Whales are people that hold a significant amount of cryptocurrency.  They are the obsession of NFT creators as people follow what they buy and when.

Crypto Mermaid FAQ for Art Basel Miami Beach 2022

What is the connection between crypto and the Art Basel Miami Beach Art Fair?

Crypto has made its way into the art world via the popularization of NFTs to collect artworks. NFTs (short for non-fungible token) are unique assets that can be created, tracked and exchanged on the blockchain. Since 2017, the amount of NFT artworks has increased exponentially. In 2021 they made their first appearance at the Art Basel Miami Beach Art Fair at the Tezos and Nagel Draxler booths. This year, NFTs and crypto art at large will be present again. Continue to read the Crypto Mermaid’s guide to Miami to see what events to attend!    

 

I hear about a lot of fraud in crypto, why is that and how do I avoid it?

We believe that one of the main causes of fraud in crypto is a lack of in-depth understanding of the risks associated with different components of this new technology.  Knowledge is the best protection and that’s why we are here.  Cryptocurrencies are also increasingly receiving crypto ratings from AI-powered firms like Evai.  Follow us By The Pool to learn more about how to understand the value of different crypto assets. 

 

Should I still get into crypto if there is fraud?

Crypto Mermaids and the By The Pool community aren’t here to convince you to invest in crypto. We are here to help you understand what it is, how it works, and, if you choose, how to get involved.  We believe everyone should understand this stuff whether or not you decide to get involved.

I already know about crypto and I like the Crypro Mermaid mission. How do I support it?

In 2023 we will be releasing the Crypto Mermaid PFP. Created by Gretchen Andrew, these

200 unique PFP NFT support crypto education for those who feel isolated from Web3. You can reserve yours for $20 or learn more.

What are Crypto Mermaid PFPs?

When you purchase a Crypto Mermaids you fund crypto, NFT, and Web3 educational programs 

Since becoming disillusioned with the culture of silicon valley artist Gretchen Andrew has been using her increasingly visible art practice to increase popular understanding of new and important technologies.  In 2021 she formalized her internet activism and efforts in internet literacy into By The Pool. By The Pool is an open community demystifying male-dominated knowledge topics in a fun, female, and approachable way.

 

The Crypto Mermaids fund crypto education in 3 primary ways:

  1. Supports the Beach Club Book Club: Monthly gatherings encouraging crypto education hosted by Monique Leong at pools all around the world with a home page at Barbican Beach Club.

  2. Writing and promotion for the Crypto By the Pool book publication: Read the full Crypto By the Pool book proposal (under contract).

  3. Production of Video & Multi-Media Content: We bring new people into Web 3 by meeting them where they are with a focus on Instagram, Tick Tok, YouTube. 

NFT PFP Crypto Mermaids give the existing Web3 community the chance to support the growth of the Web3 community through funding the By The Pool outreach efforts.  

Why Crypto Mermaids Matter

An Accenture study found that 50% of women abandon tech careers by the age of 35. 

In 2021, only 5% of crypto entrepreneurs were women. This imbalance needs readjustment.

 

Gretchen Andrew left the world of Big Tech to become an artist where she believed more people are celebrated and rewarded for being themselves. It is a heartbreaking journey to leave a place you love but don't feel you belong. Changing technology and the demographics of those who benefit from it have always been part of Gretchen's mission as an artist. 

Crypto mermaids is a female-led NFT collectible project that supports empowerment by funding tech education.

Crypto Mermaids Fund "By The Pool"

What is "By The Pool"

An open community demystifying male-dominated knowledge topics in a fun, female, and approachable way. We have communities focused on Artificial Intelligence, Climate Change, and general finance. Crypto By The Pool is our primary focus at this time because we believe everyone should know how this works, whether or not they engage with it. We use fun education and events with the following guiding principles: 

By The Pool Principles: 

The confidence to shape the future

Male-dominated knowledge topics, especially in technology and finance (crypto), are often presented as more complicated than they really are to preserve the powerful people who profit from them. It’s, like, totally unnecessary.  The world needs more women who have the confidence to discuss and shape the future of technology. We are a wide open door to that process.   

It can't be difficult if you can’t discuss it while sipping on a Pina Colada.

Requires no prior training in computer science, programming, finance or mathematics. Its only prerequisite is curiosity.  Its dress code is a bikini and sunglasses.

The topic is always you and your confident ability to thrive in today’s world.

The subject is always self-empowerment. At its core identity, the By The Pool is about self-help, and self-improvement for women seeking personal or professional growth through the empowerment of knowing what the hell is going on. The By The Pool community is not defined by crypto as much as it is by the resulting empowerment that is the byproduct of this knowledge and enablement. 

Crypto Mermaids Specifications

  • 200 Unique PFPs

  • Drop price approximately $200 USD ($20 reserve goes to the cost of Crypto Mermaid

  • Attributes originate in hand-drawn paper doll style dress up by Gretchen Andrew

Why?

Crypto mermaids are a fun and feminine collectible NFT project with a cause.

Collecting a mermaid allows crypto natives and novices to join a community of individuals with shared values.

It’s also an investment in the by the pool community that empowers women through increased tech literacy.
