The utility-rich collection of 8,888 stunningly 3D rendered, algorithmically generated female and some non-binary PFP NFTs features artwork created by Daz 3D’s award-winning international community of female, male, and non-binary artists. The collection will be available in an initial pre-sale coming soon.
The Daz 3D character system was developed by Salt Lake City’s Tafi, a leader in 3D digital art and avatar creation that has been operating remotely in Vancouver since 2020.
Tafi announced last summer that they intend on opening a physical office in Vancouver in early 2022.
“This collection portrays powerful, self-expressive women with hyper-realistic 3D art that’s more than just a gorgeous PFP image,” said Jessica Rizzuto, SVP of eCommerce at Daz 3D.
“Our Non-Fungible People are ready to be used in streams, videos, games, and beyond. As an NFT community member, I know that both women in tech and utility for NFTs are rare, and that’s why I’m so enamored with this collection. Non-Fungible People is focused on empowering women and further NFT utility across the metaverse.”
Each Non-Fungible People PFP comes paired with a full-body 3D model for frictionless use in Daz Studio, featuring the same cutting-edge tech powering the transportable utility seen in RTFKT’s CloneX collection. With the near-limitless potential for customization and the ability to export the model to popular 3D platforms like Unity, Unreal, Blender, and more — this launch supports a new evolution of utility and collectability in the NFT space.
“NFTs are all about the technology and utility driving the project. You see that in the popularity of generative PFP collections, where both technology and art guide the creation of the piece,” said Ty Duperron, Chief Operating Officer at Daz 3D.
“Using an NFT as a profile picture for Twitter and other social spaces gives people ownership of their digital persona while applying value and utility to the NFT. At Daz, we recognized we could take that a step further in a truly generative, fully realized 3D collection created using our technology. By leveraging our software, holders can freely move their avatars to different outputs and uniquely express themselves with their Non-Fungible People.”
Beyond enhancing NFT utility, the collection serves to highlight individuality, diversity, and empowerment among women and non-binary individuals in technology. A percentage of initial NFP sales will be donated to causes with a focus on female representation in tech fields. Daz 3D plans to provide ongoing support to these causes through community engagement.
