About Us

Elissa Maercklein


I grew up in the Midwest in the US and have spent the past few years in the Bay Area. I now live in Seattle, Washington. Prior to CC, I built a startup leading our Business Operations and then co-founded a software startup where I led as CEO.​ I’m a dog mom who loves all outdoor activities – hiking, biking, skiing, and swimming (to name a few). You can often find me traveling to explore new areas of the country and world. I’m passionate about bringing more women into tech, crypto, and NFTs 💜

After growing up in Buffalo, NY and moving around the country, I’ve settled in Seattle, WA – and I love it! The most recent phase of my career has been spent at companies like Google and Meta (fka Facebook) leading in the project and program management space. I love organized docs, memorizing random facts, cooking and baking, all water sports, and anything involving animals. Women education and empowerment initiatives have been a central tenet at all phases of my life, and I feel like I’ve found my true calling leading CC and our future endeavors.


Home Is Daytona Beach, FL but I currently live in Arizona. I am an architect-in-training, superintendent, and project manager for a custom residential design-build firm that has an established reputation for creating unique modern architecture in Arizona and throughout the United States. Passionate about design, art, and creative direction.  Photography hobbyist.


I spent 14 years in the military, moving around the world until settling in Chicago, IL! I enjoy spending time with my family, dancing, and dressing up like my NFTs. I’ve always enjoyed exploring my creativity and feel like I have finally discovered this passion through Crypto Chicks and Web3


My educational background is in economics, math, statistics and post-graduate studies in finance. I’ve worked in risk management at a large bank for nine years; currently lead a team of nine risk management professionals. I got into crypto in 2016 and navigated into NFT space in mid-2021. My main interest in NFTs is the community aspect and/or being a part of projects to advance important societal causes.


I grew up and currently live in San Diego California. Studied Electrical Engineering, hardware side (wish I was a software engineer, programming Solidity right about now).
I am the Director of Hardware Engineering for a radio company, in San Diego Ca. Fell down the BTC rabbit hole in 2020, which led me to crypto and eventually NFTs.
Passionate about dogs, food, soil and random facts. 


Sara was born and raised (and now is back living again!) in Italy. She has an MA in Contemporary Art and has spent her whole career at the intersection of tech and art. She had a successful career in NYC collaborating with MoMa, Christie’s, and the Andy Warhol Foundation. More recently, she’s a Design Executive at a global tech company and a creative advisor to venture capitalists. Most importantly, she’s a mom to a 3 years old boy ❤️



Living in Sweden, Studied to become a microbiologist and got my degree but ended up fighting three different deadly diseases instead (heart failure, skin cancer and kidney failure) so I ended up working outside of a laboratory and working from home instead. I run a company with my father where we produce and market Arcade Machines, Virtual Pinball Machines and random custombuilds aswell as working from home with NFT projects. I love people and life stories, animals, foods, gardening, playing and basically all things – there is so much in life to love! Especially my close friends and family online and offline 🙂
Love and kindness are never wasted


Based in Melbourne Australia. Over 20 years in Banking and Finance, currently in Investment Private Banking, as well as a co-founder for a Sports, Media and Entertainment Company. Previously held General Manager Operations for an International Event Management Company for 10 years. Basketball fanatic, addicted to golf and loves dogs. I Love traveling the world, hiking, sightseeing, and learning the different cultures and their histories (and definitely the food). Started in NFT via Topshot Jan 2021 and grew to love the world of Crypto and NFTs with close friends and new friends that I have been able to connect with all over the world.


Grew up in Los Angeles CA, currently studying Electrical and Computer Engineering at UCLA as well as working as a co-op for a semiconductor testing company. I got into NFTs early September and fell in love with the space immediately. This led me to want to learn more about blockchain development as a whole and possibly pursue a career in it in the future. Outside of NFTs I enjoy working out as well as watching and playing soccer.


Born in Europe but grew up in Chicago, where I fell in love with the hustle and bustle of city life. Currently juggling parenting while running a successful property management career. I started trading stocks and crypto in 2018, eventually exposing myself to the world of NFTs, and am so excited to be part of the evolution of web3! In my downtime, when I can be pulled away from moderating (spying on) everyone’s convos in the Discord, you can find me exploring the outdoors – remember that place? It has nice air.


Born and raised in Taiwan, now living right outside of NYC. Proud girl dad of three! Paving the way for my girls in the tech/web3 world to show them what is truly possible for them. Huge advocate for Personal Development and always striving towards becoming the best version of myself. Been in the Digital Marketing space for local businesses for the past 10+ years. Passionate about all sports and outdoor activities, especially basketball, baseball, snowboarding and cheerleading. Falling head over heels for NFTs and excited for what’s to come in this space!


I’m a digital nomad, currently enjoying Hawaiian life. My background is in investment management and IT. I first got into crypto in 2016 and discovered NFTs in early 2021. I quickly fell down the NFT rabbit hole after falling in love with the community aspect of the space. When I’m not studying defi and web3, I love getting outside, spending time in nature, and water sports.

What is the history of Crypto Chicks?

The first collection, now known as the “OG” collection, was created by Ms.Polly over the spring and summer of 2021.

The 10k Crypto Chicks collection was launched in September of 2021 as generative art pfps, and it has expanded into a vibrant community.

The OG Crypto.Chick collection has been absorbed by the community as a DAO, and the 10k Crypto Chicks collection has been purchased by the New Leadership Team. We will be working with the OG DAO to cultivate opportunities for OG holders to plug into the new ecosystem through new, unique 1/1s and additional value mechanisms.

How can I get involved in the Crypto Chicks community?

You can purchase a 10k Crypto Chick on OpenSea – But! You don’t need to be a CC holder to engage in our community. We have a ton of active community members who are in the process of starting their NFT journeys and have not yet purchased.

What's coming next for Crypto Chicks?​

Our primary goal is to empower women in web3 and our first step in doing so is to invest in building a solid, revamped foundation for the CC ecosystem – establishing the foundation needed for exponential growth. Simultaneously, we’re working on a number of community-centric business developments like using our time machines, supporting a new group of women artists, and expanding into the Women Labs ecosystem.

What is Women Labs?

Stay tuned to find out more! Since you read this far, we’ll give you a little treat:

It furthers our vision of empowering women in web3, and your Crypto Chick is the key to unlocking value in the new ecosystem
