Sport legends Jackie Joyner-Kersee, Cynthia Cooper-Dyke, and Jayna Hefford join forces with Parity and Aventus to headline first NFT marketplace exclusively dedicated to women athletes

Three legends of women’s sport will headline the official launch of the Parity NFT Marketplace (powered by Aventus Network), the first non-fungible token (NFT) marketplace exclusively dedicated to women athletes.

This revolutionary venture led by Parity offers athletes and artists a combined 90% of net revenue from initial NFT sales, as well as royalties from every secondary market sale, including sales decades into the future when athlete or artist may have grown in accomplishment and fame.

Three legends of women’s sport will headline the official launch of the Parity NFT Marketplace (powered by Aventus Network), the first non-fungible token (NFT) marketplace exclusively dedicated to women athletes.

Parity has partnered with Aventus Network and its subsidiary, VereNFT, to create NFTs compatible with the Ethereum network but that can be transacted with orders of magnitude more speed, less cost, and greater environmental efficiency.

The first Legends Collection NFT, created by renowned artist Borbay, will celebrate track & field’s Jackie Joyner-Kersee. The next two will honor Olympic medalist and Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame member Cynthia Cooper-Dyke, and Olympic and professional hockey great Jayna Hefford.

"The Parity NFT Marketplace will — for the first time in cryptocurrency — put women athletes at the forefront of technology, business and sport, rather than having them as an all-too common afterthought,"

said Minji Ro, Co-CEO of Parity.

"The Aventus team understood the ambitious scope of our vision from the outset, and their technical knowledge is unmatched. The Parity Legends Collection is an exciting beginning to our collaboration."

Joyner-Kersee’s NFT auction will run January 23 from 7:00PM – 11:00PM ET, with Hefford’s and Cooper-Dyke’s to follow in subsequent weeks. All auctions will take place in USD and be purchasable with credit card on the Parity NFT Marketplace, where fans will also find a growing number of NFTs celebrating women athletes from the Parity community.
