What is UGC?

UGC stands for User Generated Content, and refers to secondary creative content created by fans of the content. The Ryukyu bottle-shaped designs to be made into NFTs in this project can be used for secondary creation, and commercial use is also partially allowed.
The following are some examples of UGC applications.
  • Use on T-shirts and product packaging
  • Background design for SNS icons
  • Use as texture design for VR avatar clothing, etc.
  • Collaborative product development between artisans engaged in traditional Japanese crafts
If you are interested in producing UGC, please refer to the Terms of Use and Examples.
