Latest Boss Beauties News
Boss Beauties is collaborating with Barbie to launch a collection of virtual collectibles on the Flow blockchain.
- Boss Beauties and Barbie join forces to create unique NFTs that reflect Barbie's diverse career history.
- Those who purchase on May 10 will receive an exclusive virtual collectible to be revealed in July 2023.
- NFT owners will have the opportunity to join "Career Conversations," a series dedicated to female professionals.
- The NFTs are minted on the Flow blockchain.
- Early access opens at noon ET today.
Each collectible will represent a different career from Barbie's extensive portfolio. The collection will maintain four rarity tiers: common, super rare, ultra rare, and exclusive. Collectibles are sold in packs, which contain at least two common cards, and a guarantee of one uncommon card from the rarity tiers outlined above.
For collectors looking to complete their sets or exchange their NFTs, a marketplace has been established and will be unveiled on May 18.
Additionally, Barbie is donating $250,000 to the Barbie Dream Gap Project and the Boss Beauties Foundation as a celebration of the collaboration.
❗️Why It Matters
Barbie is one of the most recognizable collectible brands in the entire world and now web3 participants can get their hands on verifiable collectibles on the Flow blockchain. While native web3 brands have lost attention and shine over the last year, notable web2 brands continue to make their way into the space, opening the collecting experience to a wider demographic of users.
Beyond the collecting experience, it's encouraging to see an empowering female brand enter the space alongside Boss Beauties, which has a stated goal of trying to bring the next million girls and women into web3. In a space dominated by young men, more examples of strong female characters is a positive.

Users will also have the opportunity to mint a virtual gallery pass, from OnCyber, which will be airdropped Dec. 5. The virtual gallery passes cost $50, with all of the proceeds going toward Big Brothers Big Sisters of America.
“As we countdown to the 96th Macy’s Parade, we are excited to bring this spectacle once again to the web3 virtual landscape with a fun experience that empowers our fans, collectors and our highly engaged Discord community,” said Will Coss, executive producer of Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. “Our genesis collection of Parade NFTs last year was so successful that we wanted to give our digital community the opportunity to select a native NFT design to be transformed into a real-world Macy’s Parade balloon, while also creating an opportunity to raise critical funds for our partner Big Brothers Big Sisters of America.”
