What is RadLand?
RadLand is an NFT marketplace tailored for trading and minting NFTs. It is engineered to support NFT creators and users, enabling them to navigate the Radix NFT landscape easily.
The platform offers a unique system that allows for the bulk minting of NFTs, a streamlined listing experience, and a straightforward process for creators to claim their earnings.
