Instead of being a node and RPC protocol, Radiant utilizes an NFT based system. Both tokens, Rays and xRay can be used to mint different types of NFTs that can be staked to generate yields. Using NFTs helps to alleviate the need for monthly fees that some protocols have to implement due to the maintenance costs associated with nodes. Additionally, NFTs offer a wide variety of functionality that can be customized as the protocol grows, allowing for gamification, as well as unique functionality to add to the protocol's user experience. NFTs are peer-to-peer (P2P) transferable but sales on marketplaces won't be permitted initially. As collections sell out, secondary markets will be made available to allow collectors to acquire enough NFTs to upgrade.
