With REMX.XYZ, anyone can become an NFT creator. REMX.XYZ serves as an all-in-one platform for 3D models, generative art, augmented reality, smart contracts, and NFT creation.
Artists can easily begin creating these metaverse fashion designs directly on the platform and create NFTs out of their finished creations. By simply inputting directions such as the palette colors, REMX.XYZ will automatically take care of the rest of the creative processes for you. ?
?By enabling anyone with a creative desire to design their own 3D digital fashion NFTs and receive an income from their work, REMX.XYZ could potentially democratize the entire industry and allow for a much more diverse set of fashion designs to be created and shared with the world.
These digital designs can also become physical items. For example, 'REKT Deck' is the first digital skateboard on the platform that is paired with a physical skateboard to match. One lucky collector will have both the digital and physical skateboards, and it supports the artists (in this case, Casey Rickey).
