From NFT Newbies to Web3 Leaders: A Journey With Belle and NFTGirl

The importance of the adoption of Web3 in Latino communities and increasing Latin American representation.

February 22, 2023

Kamz is joined by Lex and Diana to discuss the greatest barriers for Latino communities to adopt Web3 technology, and what we can do at the individual and community level, respectively to support its adoption.


Over the last two years, Lex, better known as NFTGirl, has worked with @NFTfeen to establish the NFTGirl Collection, which encompasses a meticulously curated selection of more than 500 digital artworks.

The NFTGirl Art Collection was selected by Sotheby's to feature pieces from amazing digital artists including Killer Acid, Stefano Cott and Jon Noorlander.

Their overarching goal is to uplift artists and creators while fostering connections within the Web3 community, all while spreading awareness and knowledge about Web3 and non-fungible tokens (NFT) to a wider audience.

Diana, better known as Belle NFTs

Belle NFTs, co-founder of XYZ News, hosts multiple shows, including “IYKYK” – a show recognized as one of the best NFT learning resources for both beginners and experts. Belle left behind a successful career to dive headfirst into Web3. As a widow and single mom, Belle is passionate about empowering others to participate in blockchain technologies and to uplift the voices of creators in the industry. She views Web3 as a place where underrepresented creators can thrive and achieve financial freedom.
