Not From the Zoo (NFTZ) is a wild tribe of 8,888 unique editions minted on the Ethereum blockchain. The animated nature of the collection transcends the lively characters behind its animals, their uniqueness and ability to express emotions. Like in the real world, the animals have feelings - whether joy, fear, love or sadness. They reflect the thousands of animals held in captivity, separated from their natural habitat and forced to perform. NFTZ aim to evoke awareness of the animals being living creatures that deserve respect and protection.
With generative NFT collectibles, an algorithm mixes together traits (or 'properties') like background color, eye type, or a variety of mouths to create a huge range of combinations of visual outputs. The result is thousands of unique NFTs, each with its distinctive set of attributes. Thanks to these properties and their unequal distribution, certain items in the collection will be rarer than others! You can use your unique animal to express reactions on social networks, share the cause, or even put it as a profile picture.
Our top buyers and collectors will be featured on the Leaderboard and get exclusive items at the end of the sale. Since our ranks classify by the highest amount paid per item, be sure to show your support and secure your place on the Leaderboard through our mint page. Know more!
Our project is 100% committed to making a difference in the world, so 100% of the profits from sales will be donated by NFTZ to support PETA’s Global Compassion Fund, which will provide an immediate boost to PETA Germany and other partners working to deliver veterinary care, and other necessities to animals in Ukrain Together, we’re making the world a better place for all beings.
Each NFT is algorithmically generated by combining 100+ unique traits with varying rarity across categories. Take a look at our rarity distribution in the chart below:
Among the tribe hide eight NFTZ inspired by real-life animals! These special friends represent eight of the animals most at risk of being exploited by abysmal roadside zoos and circuses. With our intervention and help, real-life animals just like them don’t have to worry about being used for entertainment – and can enjoy their lives in peace! Each only occurs once in the whole collection - will you find them?
