On April 14, XEX Crypto launched a new NFT collection called Xexadons. The collection consists of 50 AI-generated Ordinals and is intended to provide a unique iteration in the NFT space. Xexadons are an essential part of XEX Crypto’s plans to build a gamified, cross-chain, web3 experience.
To achieve this, XEX Crypto introduced a gamified, cross-chain staking mechanism where users must decide which chain to stake their Xexadons on. The staking mechanism aims to create an engaging and interactive NFT experience, with added gamification.
