Presentation
Describe the problem your project is trying to solve *
Education is lacking for women in new industries. Funding is also lacking for women in every industry. BTSC Media will educate women about Cannabis and Web3 (two industries severely lacking female representation), while generating funding as a Female-Owned company.
BTSC will create a set of Generative PFP NFTs that consist of 10,000 unique mints of “420 ladies” – Each 420 Lady wiil consist of randomized traits set in various “decade” backgrounds. Portraits will feature various “accessories & paraphernalia” with a bud of varying strains of cannabis flower as the face and body.
With the Sale of NFTs, BTSC will create a community around getting your Mom high. Through community engagement efforts, BTSC will ultimately produce media content highlighting cannabis stories and providing education that has an impact both in Cannabis and Web3.
BTSC will also donate 5% of our primary NFT sale profits to women led cannabis companies. BTSC will highlight women and minorities in all of our media.

Describe how your project relates to blockchain or Web3 *
BTSC Media will be funded through creating community and by developing Generative PFP NFTs. The NFT’s utility will include access to quarterly subscription boxes that will include CBD products, access to in-person events, and voting ability for the brands and stories to be highlighted by BTSC Media. Holding the NFT with diamond hands will lead to more utility benefits for the holder including Monthly BTSC Media NFT airdrops. As part of the NFT Launch, BTSC will create an introductory training program for women to learn more about Web3.

How are you encouraging other women/minorities to be part of your community? *
BTSC Media pledges to highlight women within cannabis and Web3, hoping that 45% of our NFTs are sold to minorities and new Web3 users. We will use MGD grant funding to create an easy education for users to learn about web3 through BTSC’s NFT program; the program will culminate in the ultimate creation of a wallet and purchase of an NFT.
Furthermore, our NFT will include all traits like hair and accessories from varying races and cultural backgrounds, highlighting the uniting nature of cannabis and how differences make for a better community. BTSC Media was created to highlight the stories of women who have been traditionally overlooked by the male-driven cannabis market.
