About the Parity NFT Marketplace
Women athletes, digital art, fans, and collectors meet at the Parity NFT Marketplace. Athletes can monetize their names/images/likenesses (NILs). Fans and collectors can buy original NFTs featuring such athletes, knowing that the authenticity and their ownership of such NFTs is secured by blockchain technology on the Aventus Network, built on top of Ethereum. To keep things easy and accessible, Marketplace transactions are denominated in USD.
