International Women’s Month gets a special highlight in the digital collectible space this March 29, 2023 with the launch of the Walang Katulad collection by Filipinas NFT, a women-led art initiative.

The collection, whose goal is to champion the use of the Web 3.0 space for women, will launch exclusively on Mintoo, accessible via PDAX Android and Huawei mobile app or web.pdax.ph.

One of Mintoo’s first collections made available for sale to the public, Walang Katulad features the works of ten women artists namely Aya Abad, Agatha Art, Mariel Cruz, Marie Dumadara, Jadie Lara, Julianne Ng, Meemoo, Taiga, Xiao, and Evie Yokai.

According to Khat De Guzman, one of the founders of Filipinas NFT, Walang Katulad is ‘a groundbreaking women-led NFT art collection that celebrates female creativity and [...] their unique identities and stories.’

She added that each piece in the collection highlights ‘women beyond boundaries’ and is a reminder of the importance of  the representation of the diverse beauty and strength of women in the digital art world.

Furthermore, 10% of the sales of Walang Katulad will be donated to I Support The Girls MNL, an non-government organization whose initiative is to provide feminine wear and hygiene necessities to Filipino women in need.
